An ice storm is coming. Some of the Republicans don’t want to get stuck in D.C. for Christmas fighting for freedom.
Yeah, that whole “getting stuck in an ice storm” thing is such a bummer. Ask General Washington and the me at Valley Forge. (NOTE for full disclosure: My 9-greats grandfather Christopher was one of them.)
So Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid have agreed not just to vote on the health care package on Thursday morning, but also to lift the debt ceiling.
Then they’ll fly home. All before the sun even makes it to its peak position in the Christmas Eve sky.
Yes, the GOP got the Democrats to go to Christmas Eve. But only for show and face saving.
Compared to Churchill:
We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
This really, truly makes me damned angry. These people are my Representatives in government. They do NOT decide when they get to go home — WE DO — with our votes.
It’s getting very, very close to the time to tell them all to come home.
And by the way, I like Redstate’s idea ’bout leaving the Democraps in the lurch here:
We need a Churchill, not a molehill as the GOP leader.
By the way, why stick around? We know the Democrats have the votes. Make them own it. If we’re going to throw in the towel early, the GOP should en masse pack up and go home. Leave the Dems alone by themselves to do in the Republic.
Put up or shut up, Mitch. Get in the game, or get of the bench.
