I just about lost my lunch the other day when I read that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell actually went on the record with that comment. I don’t remember all this hand-wringing against “extremism” by the drive bys and ruling class when the Democrats were ramming ObamaCare down our throats in 2009.
RobRielleWho is cautioning Raleigh Republicans in today’s N&O that they risk losing their legislative majority if they keep up this limited government stuff. They need to be more like their governor, he says.
Be sure to listen to Rob, gang. *You KNOW he and his paper have always had the, um, best interests of the GOP at heart.* Let’s see. Kay Hagan attacked the NCGA Republicans mercilessly in the 2014 Senate race. How’d that work out for her? (Republicans STILL have a veto-proof majority in both chambers.)
Another publication that, um, *always* has the best interests of the GOP — Politico — reports that US Senate Republicans are teaming with Democrat “moderates” to put the brakes on Obama’s amnesty order. The reasoning? That same tired old saw about it all leading to a government shutdown and costing the GOP seats. You saw how many seats the 2013 shutdown cost the GOP in 2014. (Gains in BOTH chambers.)
Never mind that all kinds of exit polls showed that people voted Republican in 2014 because they want Obama, ObamaCare, and amnesty STOPPED.
Our state and nation are in dire straits. What’s needed IS bold action. In other words, stuff that will likely scare the drive-by media and their Democrat comrades.
