    I've heard too many GOP politicians publiucly embrace their ploy to torpedo President Obama to discount the ploy. Not to mention the entire GOP political strategy hinges on controlling the one national power center in the US the POTUS. Without the POTUS the ever-shrinking GOP demographic leaves the GOP a regional party. One does not spend 30 years building up the concept of an imperial presidency only to serve up that power center to the opposition party on a silver tray.

    But the Romney's already own the tea service so guess what? That is what they are doing.

    •  Elections Not the Only goal for Scortched Earth (0+ / 0-)

      I don't know.  I look at the Democrats running and governing as Republican-lite and other Democrats afraid of saying or doing anything remotely in line with Democratic values and I think that the Republican 'scorched earth' methods do pay off even if they don't win the Presidency or any other election for that matter.  

      Its about establishing the narrative and working the refs and then they don't even have to do the heavy lifting of achieving their goals.  The Dems will do it for them.  Cut Social Security and Medicare.  Lay down on gun control and pro-choice issues, etc.
