That is the reason you don't compromise with Democrats. You tee off conservative Republicans and then you lose elections.

I am putting the full blame on HW Bush. He was the one that broke his pledge. Democrats just did what Democrats do. He should have known better. Raising taxes, no matter how much Democrats want you to, doesn't work.
Never compromise with Democrats, it just doesn't work.

How do reconcile the above post with your statement earlier in this thread,
"How about George HW Bush and his "Read my lips, No new taxes"? Democrats pushed for him to break this pledge, and applauded him when he broke the pledge. But when election time came they crucified him with it."
Which is it to be the fault of the Democrats or the fault of the Republicans?
I think you will find that the Democrats were the only honourable party in this whole saga.
