Cole, or Colmes?

Tom Cole’s appeal to Republicans to simply “take the deal” suggested by President Obama and immediately pass the tax cuts for those making $250,000 and less is a setup. He only made the proposal to have it slapped down. This has been confirmed by WBUR, where the Congressional reporter for the Christian Science Monitor reported that Cole made his proposal “in order that Boehner could reassure certain elements” that he would allow nothing like Obama’s proposal to happen. It was explained that Cole is “very close to the leadership,” therefore rather than actually proposing something sensible sincerely, or actually siding with the President against Boehner, he was actually simply doing Boehner’s bidding. He spoke up in order to be slapped down, kind of like Alan Colmes used to do on TV.
