2014 – Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory
Ask yourself, why with a stalled economy, chronic unemployment, staggering debt, a healthcare system that is about to implode, IRS targeting conservative groups, the NSA spying and 400 missiles missing in Benghazi are we talking about Gun Control and Immigration Reform as THE two most important legislative issues of 2013? Answer, because they are liberal base issues and Obama wants his base fired up for 2014.
Meanwhile, the GOP continues to fall for these tactics. Worse, they are fighting among themselves. Brilliant. We have an Imperial President. One who willingly violates the Constitution for policy choices and electoral gains. Instead of standing guard, the GOP is at best a by-stander. At worse, a co-conspirator. Rubio is arguing we pass immigration reform before Obama does so by Fiat. Excuse me?
At least the DC District Court finally had enough of his Dictatorship – http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324085304579010743875400898.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_LEADTop
I am at a loss. I am so tired of Obama and his strawmen. Of his bold faced lies. We need to win 2014. But what if we lose….game over. Mark Levin nails it – we are playing for keeps people.
Quotes from an Mark Levin Interview. Full text at: http://dailycaller.com/2013/08/14/mark-levin-entrenched-republican-losers-may-cost-gop-the-house-in-2014/
My great fear is that guys like Boehner, and quite frankly Paul Ryan, and Eric Cantor and his goofball [Kevin] McCarthy — they don’t get it at all. Midterm elections in particular are base elections, they are turnout elections. And they’re doing everything they can to turn us off, to turn us off. Where are they standing ground and keeping ground and fighting? Instead it’s, ‘No, no we’re not going to shut down the government.’ Even if that’s your ultimate view, why do you reveal that to the leftists and the media? It’s like playing poker and the idiot shows his cards — and that’s what he does. ‘He look at this.’”
“And also, amnesty?” he continued. “Pathway to citizenship? This is their number one issue. No. And then we have Obamacare. The president of the United States, rubbing the Republican’s nose in it,acting like he’s king, and as I’ve been saying and now others, an imperial president. ‘No. we’ll follow this part of the law. No, I’m suspending this part of the law. No, I’m deferring this part of the law.’ What the hell is that? And what are the Republicans doing about it? Now the typical Republican response would be ‘well what do you want us to do about it?’”
Here’s what I want you to do,” Levin said. “You fools should have been, time and time again, every time he has violated the Constitution, you should have made an issue about it,” Levin said. “You should have punished him in some way — denied him some appointee, obstructed some piece of legislation. Draw attention to this lawlessness so the American people after a year, or two, or three of you consistently explaining it and hammering away at it would in fact be aware of what you’re trying to do and say! But instead, what do we get? What do we get? We get John McCain attacking Ted Cruz. What do we get? Chris Christie attacking Rand Paul. What do we get? Karl Rove attacking Mike Lee. The same dug-in entrenched losers who may well cost us the House of Representatives in the next election.”
Levin speculated as to what would happen if the Democrats regained control of the House and who the so-called Republican establishment may blame for it.
“And do you know what Obama will do again if he controls the whole damn thing?” Levin added. “And he’s banking on it. That’s why he’s putting all these things off. He’s sucking people in to vote for him and then he’s going to drop the hammer. Then what do we do? ‘We don’t control any — one half of one third or anything else.’ And what are the Republicans going to do then? Blame the conservatives? Blame the tea party? What are they going to do then? ‘We can’t control anything. We don’t even have one half of one third — of course you don’t. Look what you’ve squandered, the opportunity. This president is pathetic. His policies are a disaster. We have sustained high unemployment, sustained housing problems. The economy is still on its back. He won’t secure the damn border. He’s hollowing out the military. He’s hollowing out NASA. What the hell? He’s handing you the issues to run on. And what do you do? You attack conservatives. Brilliant.”
