If conservatives are too lax in their thinking, this may all be a moot point. Wishful thinking does not win Elections…… Brutus
From Real Clear Politics:
The 2010 midterm election that swept Republicans into power in the U.S. House of Representatives was a mandate to put the brakes on President Obama and his agenda.
Aside from voters also hoping that Republicans would do something – anything – to boost the economy, restraining Obama was pretty much the issue of that election.
It was the second wave election in four years (Republicans were dumped from the majority in 2006). And it had less to do with voters finding Republicans appealing once again and more to do with putting a halt to the Democrats’ overreach.
At the center of that overreach was the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare – which is why many of those elected to office in that cycle and reelected last year have been adamant about repealing it, even at the cost of a government shutdown.
The current CW is that Most Horrible Human Being in History, Sen. Ted Cruz, and “his” government shutdown has done what was previously unthinkable; that is, put the House up for grabs in November 2014. Like most of the lame blathering of the legacy media, this statement is worthless baloney. The truth is, that given the jeopardy that our nation is in, thanks to the cabal occupying the White House, we need to pretend that unless we work our butts off for the next year, Obama’s democrats will take it all. Complacency is a recipe for even more disaster!
