Too Many GOP Establishment Deals with Democrats Put Us Where We are Today
RINO’s love to say we’re too conservative.
Check it out:
I would venture to say that today’s Republican Party is actually doing pretty good at making deals with Obama on amnesty. That’s one area. I don’t know, but it’s interesting and illustrative of the continuing internecine battle going on inside the Republican Party. Here we have the most radical, leftist president and agenda that this country has ever faced, and the Republicans are in an argument over whether or not they ought to agree with part of it.
Here they have (and have had for five years) the greatest opportunity ever to contrast what they believe and what we believe with what’s actually happening. We’re have gone beyond theory now. The liberals are actually implementing a genuinely radical agenda. We’ve got an opportunity that’s being squandered to contrast what we believe, ’cause we’re buying into all this same old criticism that we’re not bipartisan enough and we’re not cooperative enough. It’s sad in its own way.
Striking deals with the Democrats is what got us into the mess that we’re in today! Too many of those deals were struck by old line Republicans who believe that when the Democrats put something forward, we must have an alternative. They still set the agenda. All we do is mess around at the margins with it. Bob Dole further “said he was disturbed by his party’s obstructionist behavior on Capitol Hill. ‘It seems almost unreal that we can’t get together on a budget or legislation,’ he said.”
Uh, Obama’s budget hasn’t gotten a single Democrat vote in five years.
Does it not matter what the legislation is? Does it not matter what the budget is? Is it that no matter what they put forth, we’re supposed to strike a deal with ’em? Again, folks, I rear my head and say, “This is what happens when people do not look at things ideologically.” Eh, it’s just a bunch of Republicans and Democrats running around. The Democrats happen to have the power right now so we’ll strike some deals with ’em and so forth and we’ll win a couple elections down the road and they’ll strike some deals with us.
And the ruling class inside the Beltway continues on uninterrupted.
