Judson Phillips dissects what he calls Republican Suicide, Matt Drudge calls it Treason. Are they both missing what is really going on?
Who says the Republican leadership, people like John Boehner and Mitch O’Connell are Republicans or want Republicans to win? Robert Hannsen claimed to be a FBI agent and the FBI thought he was too. He ended up being a traitor and KGB spy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Hanssen
Aldrich Ames claimed to be a CIA agent and the CIA thought he was too. He ended up being a traitor and KGB spy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldrich_Ames
When the 2016 elections are over and the history of those elections is written, the Friday before Memorial Day may go down in history as the day the Republican Party committed suicide.
Ten years ago, the Republicans held the White House and they controlled both the Senate and the House of Representatives. Then they managed to blow it. By 2006, the public was tired of the Republicans, for among other things not keeping their promises.
Two years later, in a further repudiation to the Republican Party, the American people voted in the most liberal Democrat in the history of the nation. They also gave the Democrats absolute control of the Senate as well as the House of Representatives. In 2010, America voted Republicans into control of the House based on the promise they would fight President Obama. Despite the fact they did not, the GOP ran on fighting Mr. Obama in 2014 and they took control of the Senate.
Instead of fighting the Obama agenda, the Washington Republican leadership has embraced it. Friday, over the strenuous objections of conservatives, the Senate passed what is known as “Trade Promotional Authority.” The only possible second term victory for Obama is negotiating and passing the Transpacific partnership that critics call Obamatrade. Mr. Obama promised when he was pushing Obamacare, “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” Under Obamatrade, critics now mock that saying, “If you like your job, you can keep your job.”
Conservatives were promised that a Republican Senate majority along with the House Republican majority would fight the Obama regime. Instead of working to dismantle Obamacare or to cut the out of control spending, the Republicans want to give Mr. Obama a blank check to write a treaty that could effect every part of American life from what we eat to what we see on the Internet.
