The senate minority leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made an unbelievable statement today that essentially said, go ahead and try but we probably won't be able to repeal the monstrosity known as Obamacare.
What is wrong with this dude?!
I mean, while the irons are still blazing hot, this guy decides hey, maybe I should throw a jug of freezing cold water on those who think that there is really going to be a shot at repeal.
So, here is that jug of freezing cold water to those of us who want to fight for a senate majority and an eventual vote for repeal of Obamacare:
"If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this
direction, I'd say the odds are still on your side. Because
it's a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place."
Really, Sen. Mitch?!
Well of course it would have been easier if one Barack Hussein Obama did not become president in 2008. And let us not forget it would have been better that Democrat majorities in the House and Senate did not balloon to near super majorities.
But that is the hand that was dealt.
Because of the way the 2,700 page monstrosity passed in the first place, a lot of the more serious aspects of the officially known Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will not begin until after the upcoming election.
So there is time if the Republicans do indeed increase their majority in the House, win the majority in the Senate and Mitt Romney is elected president.
But why is Sen. Mitch saying such things at this point?
Is it possible that Sen. Mitch has had a little too much time inside that Beltway? Because the comment does strike me as such. And one can make the case that Sen. Mitch is being realistic.
But what Sen. Mitch and the mealy-mouthed Republicans are not getting is this.
The American public in poll after poll, after poll, after poll, have given Obamacare a big fat thumbs down.
In fact, even after the supreme court decision that essentially upheld Obamacare when the 5-4 majority found that the mandate was really a tax, the American public did not like the fact that Obamacare was upheld.
Sen. Mitch, dude, get out of the beltway. Realize that the public wants health care reform. And even if some of what is in the current monstrosity is kept after repeal, they do not want what the federal government has to offer.
Sen. Mitch, how can you get a Republican senate majority when you make comments like this?
You can't if Team Dear Leader, Team Obama, gets this out on their communication platforms. Especially the Obamawhore media.
This is not brain surgery.
The public wants a do over. The only way we get a do-over is to get rid of those that forced this abomination on us in the first place. We have the supreme court ruling that the thrust of the funding for this, the mandate, is a tax. That is what we keep driving home. Day after day. Hour after hour. Minute after minute.
I want the senate to be a Republican one. What I don't want is a majority leader in Sen. Mitch that seems to not have a stomach for the fight. If that is the case, the first order of business after the election is to look at a new majority leader. One that will fight for repeal and replace. One that will not be afraid of the Obama/Leftywhore media. One not afraid of the Democrats. One that will not cut a deal but stand his or her ground. No more "nuanced" leadership.
Sen. Mitch, I hope that you clarify the remarks. I hope that you show the fight that you did in the McCain/Feingold so-called campaign finance reform.
The Republicans at all levels need to get this and get it good.
This is a fight for the nation. A fight as to whether we get a total socialist makeover in a, God forbid, second term of the Dear Leader, President Obama. We can not treat this as just another election when it is not.
We Republicans need to heed the words of former Pennsylvania senator, Rick Santorum, who urged supporters to join the fight. It is a fight and we better bring big guns and not a kitchen knife. Team Dear Leader plays for keeps. We conservative Republicans must do that and more.
Because with friends like Sen. Mitch McConnell, well I am not all that confident that he realizes what is at stake.
