Let’s say, for a moment, that the Republicans succeed in thwarting President Obama’s and Congressional Democrats’ agenda. They prove their point that the Democrats are being extraordinarily wasteful and are able to shut down much of Obama’s very ambitious plan for the next two years, rendering the government essentially paralyzed.
What platform do the Republicans then run on in 2010? We stood by our principles, we shut down Obama, now elect us and we’ll do it again for the next two years? Is this a winning strategy?
