The Republican leadership has just announced what to me is typical of their policy of shooting themselves in the foot...and leg...and torso...and head at every possible opportunity.
As reported in Talking Points Memo, Republicans just tipped their hand, and the President should use this to best advantage for arguing to take control of the House AND Senate:
“If Obama wins re-election, the Republican Party will react by moving right, not left,” observes Ramesh Ponnuru, a well-connected conservative writer, in a Bloomberg op-ed Monday. “It will become less likely to compromise with Obama, not more.”Talking Points Memo
This is nothing short of a huge stragetic blunder on the part of Republicans, especially on the eve of the Democratic Convention where everyone's been asking, "Are you better off now than four years ago?"
President Obama now has unassailable evidence that unless voters go Democrat all the way, expect the nation to suffer for the NEXT four years under unrelenting Republican obstruction.
How will the American public react to such an overt policy posture virtually guaranteeing them more of the same crap for the next four years?
