The GOP repaid 'em by dismissing their interests, publicly chastising their viewpoints, and steering a course that largely appeased Obama and facilitated his plans for fundamental transformation.
Well, it's happening again.
Conservatives again turned out in droves to oppose Obama, and in the process delivered another strong showing for the GOP, this time giving them the Senate.
And the GOP? Already sharpening the knives they'll use to stab those conservatives in the back.
Carefully choreographed moves are in the works for Republicans to say they're opposing Obama's immigration power grab but in the end, Obama gets what he wants. By design.
At Red State, Erick Erickson notes:
Republicans are pushing forward with a plan to fund the government. They claim they will then return next year and defund the President’s plan. But doing so would be subject to a Presidential veto. The GOP does not have the votes to override that veto. In effect, they’ll be funding the President’s plan while setting themselves up to claim they oppose it.
The GOP does not oppose the President’s plan. Hell, much of the GOP, including most of its Senate leadership, has previously voted for what the President did. And these same Republicans have attacked their own base as racists and bigots for opposing comprehensive immigration reform.Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
Come 2016, we get the same disingenuous Republican scam all over again. You'll be told to vote Republican to stop the Democrats, and if they win, Republicans will turn around and be just as bad, maybe worse.
Want to save America? Turn your wrath on the GOP now. Call 'em out on their traitorous intent.
Elections have consequences. So should performance after the elections.
Time to demand Republicans deliver as promised. As an opposition party. Not as Obama and the Chamber of Commerce want them to.
