As hard as it is to believe, it has only been a month and a half since the inauguration. President Obama is sailing through his wish list. Most of his nominees were confirmed despite serious questions regarding their qualifications, competence, and background. His gigantic economic stimulus passed easily. His omnibus budget plan seems to have the votes. So with two years left until the next election, what can Republicans do to slow down Obama’s left-wing bullet train? Do Republicans have a plan?
House Republican Leader John Boehner, Republican Whip Eric Cantor, Senate Minority Leader Mitchell McConnell, and Senate Republican Whip John Kyl hold the leadership positions in the U.S. House and Senate. We must send them this message: Forget bipartisanship. Start leading.
Republicans in D.C. must pull out all the stops. It is time to employ every political tactic, parliamentary procedure, public relations opportunity, and legislative roadblock in an attempt to preserve what’s left of our free market economy and national security. While we do not have the votes, we simply cannot just sit by and watch this train wreck. Surely conservatives in Washington will not continue to conduct business as usual. Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. There has been a saying among U.S. Senators regarding the option of changing the rules in the Senate; it has been called “going nuclear.” Although we are the minority party, if there is a way for the minority to go “nuclear,” now is the time. Let's get creative.
If President Obama continues on this trajectory, we may not recognize our own country by the time November 2010 rolls around. So join with me in contacting our leaders and asking them to do everything in their power to thwart the Democrats in their attempts to further nationalize, socialize, tax, and disarm our country. Ask the simple question: Do you have a plan? If they don’t, they need to step down and give someone else a chance to lead.
