Bearing in mind the disastrous course upon which the Obama administration and the Democratic congress have embarked, Republicans should eschew any strategy that involves simply applying the brakes and maintaining a safe speed on our journey to Obamaland, and should, instead, be promising a roll back of both the fiscal and foreign policies being imposed wholesale on this country by the most dangerous group of incompetents we have seen since the Carter years. If ever there was a time for Republicans (and responsible Democrats and independents) to ignore the president’s current popularity in the polls, and to begin smiting him and the "Social"Democrats hip and thigh, it is now. Get your views out there in the open and stick to them; we are going to need principled, well-reasoned, workable alternatives to the mess that the Democrats are creating, and we don’t score any brownie points with the electorate by offering a low-cal version of European socialism. The Republicans are now in opposition, so, by all means, let’s see some opposing.
