Oklahoma Republican Suspected Of Acting Reasonably, May Have Urged Compromise With Obama

Yet another Republican Congressman finds himself embroiled in scandal this morning. News sources are now reporting that Rep. Tom Cole — who is both a Republican and from Oklahoma — may have recently acted in a reasonable manner.

In a private session with his GOP colleagues, Cole allegedly pressed Republicans to go along with President Barack Obama’s plan to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans for the time being in order to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff.”  Cole also stands accused of urging his fellow Republicans “to vote to extend the Bush tax rates for all but the highest earners before the end of the year — and to battle over the rest later.”

Again, we must stress that these salacious allegations are merely rumor at this point. However, we do have confirmation from Taegan Goddard’s PoliticalWire that Cole did, in fact, act in a reasonable manner and may have even hinted at a possible compromise with Democrats:

The conservative Republican said that he believes such a vote would not violate Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge and that he’s not alone within Republican circles. He also said it would “rob the president of the argument that Republicans are holding up tax cuts for all but the top earners.”

Said Cole: “I think we ought to take the 98 percent deal right now. It doesn’t mean I agree with raising the top 2. I don’t.”

    Acting reasonable? Doing the right thing for the wrong reasons is not acting reasonable. It's just another sneak attack.

    The micro-second he uttered norquist's name, like he was some sort of God that had to be obeyed, he lost all credibility.
