To paraphrase Churchill - This is the worst solution imaginable, except for all the others that have been proposed.

We have no ace in the hole. The GOP needs to support Obama's policies. Let the country run as a Democrat dictatorship -- we probably couldn't stop that if we tried. Just let it runs its course for the next 4 years and then ask the people if they like what they see.

The old adage of the frog in the pot of water, with the temperature slowing rising? That's what we've been doing -- slowly, slowly, inch by inch, over a period of decades, drifting toward fascism as the GOP "sort of/kind of" tries to stop the Democrats.

What we need to do is help the Democrats apply a blowtorch to the hindquarters of the frog. Then see if We The People jump at the chance to make a course correction.

This is the best solution, requiring the least amount of courage from Republican “leadership”.

Which is good, because they indeed have “the least amount”.

It put’s Dem’s, Obama, and the media on the defensive.

They can’t criticize it!

I’d certainly consider it. Especially since 0bama completely ignored them the first time around. Just like all of these stupid ‘committees’ and focus groups with executives, etc. He gets them to come up with proposals and solutions...and completely ignores them to push his my way or the highway crap. Sadly, the majority of clueless voters didn’t see it. But many do. And in an arena where we have to seemingly pick our battles, this is one of THE ones to pick.

Here is the GOP's REAL ace in the hole: understanding we will get no kudos from the collaborationist press, and will be trashed regardless of what we do.

The poisonous atmosphere created by the State Media makes it easy to stand on principle. There is no political gain to be realized from any compromise. So ... do the right thing.

The sad fact is that liberals see reality thru the prism of their delusions. No matter how horrible 0bamageddon becomes, they will always blame the Republicans. Give the dims everything they want and the economy collapses resulting in chaos and widespread violent civil unrest. Urban feral youths and inner city tribal parasites will invade and savage white liberal enclaves. As the white liberal 0bamatron lies in a pool of blood and watches his wife and daughters being raped and sodomized, his last thoughts will be “it’s all Bush’s fault.”

More a fly in the ointment than an ace in the hole.

I really do want to open a prize fighting operation for Republicans. I wouldn’t even have to train. I’d just step in the ring and look at my Republican opponent and hold up my left hand and say, “Drop your hands and look at my left hand.” He’d do it and I’d hit him with a right. He’d drop and get up and I’d hold up my hand and say, “ Drop your hands and look at my left hand.” He’d drop his hands and look at my left hand again and I’d hit him with my right again. I could do that for the whole fight. He’d never catch on.
