There's been a lot of talk about how Republicans may get "tricked" at the upcoming health care kabuki theater this Thursday. Well, let me put it this way ...
If Republican politicians are so gullible that they can be "tricked," they don't belong in Washington in the first place. What are they, 3-year olds?
As for YOU ... turn off the mainstream media! I mean, how much propaganda can you stomach?
Leave it to third-string, has-been quarterbacks of the Republican Party to throw an interception at the precise moment conservatives are about to turn the game around. What is wrong with people like former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former Senator Alan Simpson, and Senator Orrin Hatch?
Newt Gingrich wants to team up with Democrats on health care. Let's see. President Nixon offered comprehensive national health care proposals in 1971 and 1974. Ted Kennedy's response to the 1971 proposal? "It's really a partnership between the [Nixon] administration and the insurance companies." It died in the Democrat-led Congress.
Sitting Senator Orrin Hatch thinks that the Tea Party needs to work with the Republican Party: "If we fractionalize the Republican Party, we are going to see more liberals elected."
Here is how cause and effect works, Senator. Republicans went from 55 Senate seats in 2005 to 40 after the 2008 election. The Tea Party movement started in 2009.
The Republican implosion led to the Tea Party, not the other way around.
Exactly, it's time useless idiots like Orrin Hatch man up to the personal responsibility that Republican politicians like to preach. You did it Orrin, not "we the people."
If Republicans come out of this supporting any type of socialization, don't fall for the idea that they were "tricked." Instead, realize that's exactly what they wanted to do all along.
