Conservatives — okay, actually Republicans — are being painted as “The Party Of ‘No.’”
And, Republicans seem to want to respond to that charge.
Now, maybe it’s because I’m not a Republican (I’m not a member of any party — I am a conservative), but the tag doesn’t bother me.
Obama and his Congress have done lots of damage. And it needs to stop. So, I’m willing to embrace the “Party of ‘No’” moniker.
Look at it like this: You’re taking a trip. Someone else is driving. They’re doing a piss-poor job of driving. And they’re going in the wrong direction. At a high rate of speed.
What do you do?
Well, you don’t grab the steering wheel and suddenly turn it to the right. You stop the car. You remove the incompetent driver. You take the wheel (or get someone capable behind the wheel). Then you move in the right direction at the right speed.
That pretty much sums up what we need to do with the presidency and the Congress. Stop things. Put someone capable in charge. Then proceed.
We’re at the “stop” point of the strategy right now. So, yes, I’m all for stopping things. Stopping things cold.
And, until we have things stopped, and until we have the right people in charge, whatever Congress tries to do, I’m against it.
Embrace your inner Groucho!
