RUSH: What I want to do here is cut to the chase. The result yesterday is exactly what I said it would be. The Republican Party now has one of the most important and unquestionable mandates a political party has ever had at its junction with American history, especially a political party which did not run on a national agenda. The Republican Party purposely stood mute nationally.
Now, if you go into the races, the House and Senate raises all over the country, you will find that many Republican candidates ran specifically against Obamacare, and that is an important note to make and an important thing for you to remember. Individual Republican candidates won, and they won big. They won in a wave landslide running against Obamacare. The national Republican brand or image didn't say a word, which makes the mandate that they have all the more incredible.
It is rare that a political party running for office in a midterm election not standing for anything ends up with a mandate, and they have one, and it is the biggest and perhaps the most important mandate a political party has had in the recent era, and it is very simple what that mandate is. It is to stop Barack Obama. It is to stop the Democrats. There is no other reason why Republicans were elected yesterday. Republicans were not elected to govern.
How can you govern with a president that disobeys the Constitution? How can you govern with a president that is demonstrably lawless when he thinks he has to be? The Republican Party was not elected to fix a broken system or to make it work. The Republican Party was not elected to compromise. The Republican Party was not elected to sit down and work together with the Democrats. The Republican Party was not elected to slow down the speed the country is headed to the cliff and go over it slowly.
The Republican Party was elected to stop before we get to the cliff. And that's the mandate: to stop Obamacare; to stop amnesty; to stop the open borders policy of Obama and the Democrats; to stop the Big Government assault on the free enterprise economy; to stop national security policies that have allowed terrorist networks all over the world to pop up and fill a vacuum created by the absence of the world's lone superpower on the world stage. That must be stopped.
Me too , my dear friend ! I want to see him tarred , feathered and hung for treason !
Why waste the tar and feathers....go straight to the rope.
True! Use the TAR to fix the ROADS, and stuff pillows with the feathers!
any republican that acts otherwise is obviously deaf (and really dumb).
Read an article re Obamacare participants - 40% of those now paying into that crap have vocalized they will cancel and not pay any further come January. That will be easy for Congress to repeal this disaster. The border issue: get it closed and deport.
Those two alone will be a huge boom to the economy/jobs/security/fairness/get people off unemployment and other government subsidies; allow employers to offer full time employment(s) again. Get under control all of the insane diseases the country is seeing now; help our education system recover; allow more monies intended for citizen college students to actually go to them instead of illegal aliens; Insure that when the Pipeline issue is passed (or at least publicly vetoed against the country's best interests by Obama), those jobs go to legal workers. and on and on.
I don't think Republicans won the Congress back to "make nice" with the creeps that screwed the country up. That being said, doing what's right to fix things isn't being political, it is fixing things. If the Dems want to make it an issue, I don't think many are listening to them anymore.
Paul Ryan made a very clear/easily understood observation after the elections last night: the difference between now and 2012, was: none of the Obama/Dem agenda/laws they had passed prior to the 2012 elections had gone into effect... they purposely postponed their "start dates" to be after the last elections. and/or just hid the tyrannical EOs until after they got themselves re-elected Therefore, the country was still under the delusion of a media tagline "theory" of what was only a lie - now that everything has gone into effect (known outcomes hidden until they were re-elected), people have realized reality. Brilliantly explained.
Note: a huge win... showing of how sick the nation is with our government was Scott Walker's win as Gov of Wisconsin (third time - counting the recall unions paid for...); and what taking the govt unions on has done for Wisconsin's economy. That is a very important signal to the rest of the nation (politicians) to pay attention to. He was brave. He was also very right.
AMEN! HALLELUJIA! Well put Katherine!!!!
Get our troops out of E-bola infected Countries and bring them home...
Bring our troops home as all they were to do is erect buildings for medical. Once done, give them 42 days of R&R under medical supervision. Then let them have 6 months of training against what Obama has supported with weapons and political support. That was treason, Americans, and by Obama and Holder! Obama would suggest he listened to Americans and removed our troops supporting those against the evil Muslim insanity! It was, as usual, against advisers, which Americans seldom get to hear because of the Marxist/Nazi Liberal media!
Careful! Distasteful as it may be, "Obama Care" is a 'legal' (though un-lawful) TAX. IRS will take whatever they can get to cover the 'tax'.
Among the first three or four things the new CONgress must do immediately is REPEAL of the provisions of "Obama Care". Others include closing the borders, deporting illegals, make it uncomfortable for Muslims to remain here, Disable and remove the alphabet soup of government agencies that seem to be running the Coutry, With them, fire all of the Czars. They (Czars) belong in RUSSIA!
The commies will not work with anyone. The people elected these repubs. to go in and clean out the guttor. I do not want the new senate to give in to ANYTHING PERIOD.
First shut the muslim commie bastard down and then impeach him and all the tratorist gang that does his bidding. Then they can do the countries work. I did not vote for them to work with the illegal occupant of the WH.
Jack, I didn't either! I voted for the Republicans to SAVE
America and STOP obama! GET RID OF THE FRAUD!
He serves NO USEFUL PURPOSE in America!
I fully agree, but it is hard to get Liberal Marxist/Nazi supporting media to do anything against Obama or his administration! They do all to support all of it! I have seen nothing they seem to support that, in anyway, supports Americans and our freedom.... it is all support of Marxist takeover and, if need be, forced Muslim religion!
