GOP Missing Obamacare Opportunity
Most of the opportunities involve just pointing out the liberal lies.
Check it out:
The Republican response. You know, the Republican response is a no-win. Any response is a no-win. There’s nothing you can do. It’s television. It’s optics. There’s just no way. You can have the nicest looking room and fireplace in the world, and nothing is gonna compare to a packed House chamber no matter who the president is, no matter what he’s thought of. So it’s a tough thing to overcome.
There’s another thing here that — just so there’s no confusion, I like Cathy McMorris Rodgers. I think she’s fantastic, and I really hope — well, what I want to say is, I really hope that she doesn’t get totally co-opted by the establishment. I really don’t want to say it that way, but I guess I just did. Great choice, I think. But here’s the problem. In the real world the Republican Party, no matter who they put in there, is not going to actually close the loop because of the president’s race.
What is it that’s roiling the country right now? It’s Obamacare. And jobs, but there’s a fail-safe for that. It’s called unemployment compensation. If you are cancelled, you know, the Democrat Party has, for decades, made people think that without health insurance you may as well be without oxygen. And they’ve done a great job politically in convincing people they can’t do without that. They’ve got people living in perpetual fear of getting sick. Getting sick now equals potential bankruptcy, losing everything. And I don’t mean that as just a half-baked description.
