Party of NO is WRONG DIRECTION, .... agree or not?

A friend of mine were having this discussion and we concluded:
The Republicans who are agitating for a repeal of Obamacare would be far better off helping to develop and then agitating for a Republican substitute plan for health insurance. Where was the revolt from the right wing when Boehner agreed to the exemption for Congress? 
The R’s just can’t continue being the party of “NO”; they just come across as chronic gripers and snipers, like a bunch of old curmudgeons. They can keep their principles and still propose positive plans to solve the country’s problems. But instead, the R’s are constantly playing defense, waiting for the next stupid idea from the Democrats and then trying to poke holes in it. They may be right, but wouldn’t they be better off proposing some actions that are in concert with their principles (whatever the hell those are any more; I don’t even know half the time), and let the Demos have to try to puncture them?
What is the Republican plan for health care?!!! Can you describe it so that I understand it? I can’t. “Obamacare sucks” is not a program. What is so frickin’ hard about coming up with something that has three to five points, and then pounding it home over and over and over again by everyone in the party?
And there’s more. Why are some Republicans sniping at other Republicans? Reagan always said the primary principle was never to speak ill of another Republican. I’m just sick of both establishment R’s and Tea Party R’s taking potshots at each other. Christie snipes at Rand Paul; Paul snipes at Christie. It’s chickenshit small ball.  If they’re going to be in public service, it’s supposed to be Country First > Party Second > Self (dead last) Third. We have way too many politicians who have it backwards, and they’re in both parties.

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
