And the GOP leadership’s response? Surrender to the Dems on a “bipartisan” budget deal that once again gives we the people the shit end of the stick — while at the same time, sending Mitch McConnell around the talk show circuit to tell us how we simply can’t repeal ObamaCare, that the only way to get rid of it is to re-elect Republicans to power, even if those Republicans are the types who act in nearly every respect just like Democrats.
No thanks. Gonna pass. Not interested in the “positioning” or the gamesmanship, or who “gets blamed” if there’s another government shutdown. I’m not some unaffected spectator at a game of political chess being played by those who are all pretty much set for life.
By trying to outmaneuver Dems on some imaginary political chess board, the GOP will once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, failing to stand up for the American people when it is leadership the American people want — not risk avoidance.
Here’s the thing: The more disgust with the current leadership of the GOP, the larger the chance that when a real leader – say, Ted Cruz – comes rolling out of the barn, he’ll simply take over the party by storm, to the shock and amazement of all the go-along, get-along hacks who currently think they will be in charge forever.
