Obama: Boehner Concedes on Taxes: Rejecting Reagan, Kemp

So the President strolls into the White House press room and, among other things, announces that Speaker Boehner has conceded on taxes… that taxes must go up.

This is exactly what Obama has been after all along. A rejection of conservatism, and a specific rejection of the legacies of Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp.

In an act of massive political malpractice, Speaker Boehner has effectively lent his name to this repudiation of Reagan and Kemp.

Will House Republicans go along with this? Where is Paul Ryan?

One suspects hell will freeze over — at least in the GOP outside the precincts of the House.
