Over-eager Republicans are missing the big picture
Writing at the Corner on December 22, Andrew McCarthy expresses agreement with the theory that
on health care and all it entails, “The Dems are thinking strategically; the Republicans are all tactics.” For my money, I think the theory is being borne out: Democrats have their eyes on a different end-game than our guys do: namely, the establishment of permanent, European-style socialism in the U.S. Our guys are focused on converting Obama radicalism into big-time electoral success in the next election cycle. The Dems have already factored in that likelihood and are betting—over the long haul—that even if the GOP cuts deeply into Dem majorities or takes over Congress (and even takes over the White House in 2012), Republicans will lack the commitment (and perhaps the numbers) to roll back what the Left is accomplishing now.
