Nope, we're getting them back. We can't win on this Jim. It will backfire. Now is the time to be magnanimous in victory and move the ball down the court.
We need the mushy middle to take the Senate and expand our hold on the house. Moreover we must come off as statesmen, working toward the greater good and compromising. We need to hold onto power for at least a generation to undo all the damage. To do that we need to compromise, but in our direction.
By simply suspending Obamacare we put the Democrats in a lose-lose position. They will look reckless if they don't compromise with us. If they do, then Obama is wounded and so are they. It's brilliant political strategy and brilliant policy.
You come out and say, "Look folks, we have real solutions to health care access and cost. We don't have the votes in the Senate to fix this right. Obamacare is killing our economy. We've compromised and just moved to suspend it for the time being to help the economy."
That puts the ball squarely in Obama and the Democrats court. What can the capon media do to protect them? Nothing.
We're winning and we need to recognize it. When was the last time people were talking about the Constitution like they are now? Gun control is a death wish for Democrats even in Chicago. Abortion is being beat down. The next big goal is getting government shrunken down to its Constitutional limits.
We won't get there as a minority party. We need to play chess here.
Chess? You’re playing mush ball. Read Obama the commie’s lips. He will NOT negotiate with the Republicans!! Period. He’s drawn yet another red line. Obama/Reid have taken a hard communist line, but they have no ground to stand on.
They cannot spend any public money on this communist crap without congressional approval.
The Republicans need to take an even harder line. And stick to it no matter what!!
If they cave to the commies, there’s a whole bunch of RINOs who are going to get voted OUT!!
Pardon, but I’m really glad you’re not in charge.
We don’t have time to be “magnanimous.” nobama is Santa Clause and he’s giving away the store. We need to shut him down ASAP.
