In spite of the clear message of last Tuesday's election, specifically, that the people want Barack Obama's radical, lawless behavior stopped, leaders of the victorious GOP are sending disturbing signals that they are not as determined to do what they promised when they were looking for our votes.
For example, more than once Senate Majority-Leader-in-Waiting, Mitch McConnell, vowed to fight to repeal Obamacare. Just days before the election, he ran an ad, featuring a Kentucky nurse and mother saying just that. Suddenly, we're hearing about ditching the medical device tax, but not much else.
Perhaps there is still hope. Will the Supreme Court rescue the GOP from its own gutlessness, and thereby rescue the country from Obamacare? Its decision last week to review the Fourth Circuit's decision in King v. Burwell strongly suggests that four justices are willing to reverse the lower court's ruling authorizing tax credits for insurance purchased on federal exchanges, something clearly prohibited by the statute.
In what has got to be an amazing coincidence, just two days after the election, Obama announces that he is sending 1500 additional troops to Iraq. It couldn't be that he is permitting politics to influence his decisions about national security, could it?
The Real Harry Reid: Good Riddance! While it is clear that the election was a referendum on Barack Obama and his policies, clearly many voters were eager to rid the country of the malignant effect of having an evil, reanimated corpse, Harry Reid, in a position to destroy the U.S. Senate. We'll enjoy a tribute to Sen. Reid. Remember some of his greatest hits? No? We'll play some for your listening enjoyment.
The One announced his choice to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General. Sadly, she is cut from the same cloth; that is, she is another committed member of the black grievance industry, and a long-time dem operative.
