Republicans in Congress should let Obama have his way

The only hope for an America that would reward such epic failure by re-electing Obama and a Democratic Senate, is to accelerate their re-education in the consequences of liberal Democrat economic policies.

Speaker John Boehner should announce that he has heard the voice of the people and will honor that voice by letting the President’s agenda be fully enacted so that there will be no doubt who owns the economy. We can’t obstruct enough to make a difference in the natural outcome of events, so why strain at gnats?

Let us make clear that we are doing this out of respect for the vote to re-hire Obama and to let the people have what they voted for. It took many decades to produce such an electorate and if the Titanic liberal culture can ever be turned around, it will only be after hard lessons are learned and the voters can easily assign blame.

I say, let’s get out of the way and let Americans have it all now, while some may still have a faint memory of the jewel of what was, and so we might have a chance of choosing to return to Liberty rather than devolving into Third World status.

This lobster seems to need to feel an even greater boiling water heat. They chose it. Let them have it all. Reason doesn’t work with these people. They are beyond those appeals.

Time for tough love. Let the teenagers drive the car unrestricted and maybe we can recover after the inevitable car gets wrapped around the tree.

America now resembles the guy that jumped off the Empire State building only to decide to reverse course after descending to the 25th floor. He must suffer the natural consequences of his irrational acts before he can act to improve his lot.

Let them eat totalitarianism.

  1. I agree. The citizens of this nation want to become California, and California wants to become Greece. People like us will survive, find a way to overcome no matter what they throw at us. The sheep Obama voters? Not so much.

    They morphed into a gimmie-entitlement society where any inconvenience is an outrage and they want what they want when the want it – or else. When they finally break this country, they’ll riot because their government checks are late, burn their own inner cities and neighborhoods. When they finally come for our neighborhoods, they’ll find a buzz saw waiting.

  2. I can’t agree. If the Republicans yield, then they are complicit and have nothing to offer as an alternative in the next election. Say that the one side failed without a track record doesn’t work. Besides, left totalitarians never admit fault but always have a target to blame whom they can label as enemies of the state. We say this with the blame shifting to a Republican House for the last two years – and Obama’s unwillingness to ever accept responsibility.

    No we need to identify in advance and call out at that time what is wrong and what our alternative is then. Our failure to do that on foreign policy is the counter-demonstration of this whole (“let them hang themselves”) – Romney or Republicans could never articulate the multiple failures of the Obama foreign policy because they had no record to stand on.

    • Yes, I favor identifying and calling out our alternative every day; but that we not obstruct Obama;s agenda. Only in that way do we have the best chance to have the Dems held solely accountable. And even then, the media may fool enough voters as to responsibility. But if we make deals, then we will jointly own the economy, by definition. Moreover, no compromise deal would have any significant effect to save the economy.

      • Yes, I’m not sure that the GOP House is relevant in terms of what we can do to change the electorate so that it understands economic failure, who caused it and more importantly who didn’t fix it and that you fire that failure. This is just so fundamental and it appears that too many Americans are disconnected from the economy and taxes to care.

    • Yes Jaded, the lib media will always paint us with truth (non sequiturs) or lies to blame us, no matter what. But it is a better argument for us to not have fingerprints on policies that won’t fix the problem. We had that argument in 2010. But I am re-thinking how the GOP House could be relevant. Quite frankly, it appears we have reached that tipping point where the takers that can vote to tax others to pay them, and so I’m not sure what we can argue. I use logic and reason. I may be obsolete.

  3. I’ve never been a big believer in winning by losing, but I think at this point in time we may have reached the point of no return. If we ‘compromise’, and this economy goes into the tank (which it will), the Dems and the media will simply paint us as complicit.
    If,on the other hand, (and this is the crucial point that I have *zero* confidence that the GOP leadership can execute), we follow the Gamecock’s advice whilst saying this is what we should be doing but we’re going to let you guys have your way, then we have established a narrative record so that when this thing goes in the tank we can plausibly say “you’ve had it your way; are you ready to try something different now?”
