If so,the Speaker has made a fatal mistake. The BASE will simply allow Pubs to wander in the wilderness till Jesus comes. The BASE will not want a compromise under the gun by liars like Obama, Reid and Pelosi. If JB kow tows to them, he is not only through, but so are the Pubs and that frankly is a shame when Pubs should have realized that they are the conserv Party. Alone.
