GOP…still no plan?

Posted by italco on July 17, 2010

Sometime after Labor Day, House Minority Leader John A. Boehner plans to unveil a blueprint of what Republicans will do if they take back control of the chamber. He promises it will be a full plate of policy proposals that will give voters a clear sense of how they would govern.

It’s not that Boehner (Ohio) is arguing for a cease-fire. The debate among Republicans comes down to this: The speaker-in-waiting, for all his love of political combat, thinks that voters will not trust GOP candidates if their attacks don’t also provide at least some substance. The consultants argue that public anger, if properly stoked, alone can carry the party over the finish line. In their view, getting bogged down in the issues is a distraction and even a potential liability.

At some point and time I really believed the GOP would formulate plans for the betterment of America. I truly believed they would have written legislation that would have competed with or even enhanced Democrat proposals.

When will they learn that anger is not in the “best interest” of America. Anger is NOT the way to win an election.

We can see you…we see your plan and it amounts to nothing more than┬áthe first empty document Boehner slammed down on his podium 2 years ago.

Before the GOP does anything…they really should consult with Sarah first. At least she puts the word “Hell” in front of “NO”
