Republicans warn of obamas post 2012 priorities
….”Some of Obama’s “agenda is so completely unpalatable to the majority of Americans that he has to wait until after the election to move it — lest representative democracy stop it in its tracks,” said Jonathan Collegio, communications director at American Crossroads, a GOP-linked campaign organization.
In July 2011, Obama hinted he would raise taxes after the November election. “When you hear folks saying, well, the president shouldn’t want massive, job-killing tax increases when the economy is this weak — nobody is looking to raise taxes right now,” he said at a White House press conference. “We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out-years,” he said.”….
RRD:Obama cannot raise taxes on his own,so unless he takes the House,Republicans would have to vote to raise taxes.
If not there will be no tax increase,if so,why are they there?
If ”representative democracy” does not ”stop it in its tracks” it
could only be because either the Democrats take the House,or because the GOP caves.The former requires keeping the House,not taking the White House,the latter is a Republican problem,again,not a Obama problem.
….”In recent months,Obama has also delayed implementation of onerous environmental regulations and hinted at approving the Keystone XL Canada–U.S. pipeline, which is opposed by environmentalist groups.
But the expensive regulations could be revived after November, and inaction would doom the popular pipeline.”…
RRD:Executive regulations can be reversed at any time by a subsequent President.
In the meantime,please do.
I want the most extreme regulations possible,so that the American people can see exactly what they can expect from Cap and Trade.
That is infinitely preferable to having a Republican who advocates for the Global Warming Hysteria,work out a “pragmatic “compromise to “outwit” the Democrats,just as Heritage and Romney and Dole and Bennett “outwitted” the advocates of socialized medicine.
With such a compromise we would be slowly regulated to death like a “boiling frog”(a frog dropped in hot water will jump out,but if you place a frog in cold water and slowly increase the temperture it will be boiled to death without realizing it,or at least that’s what the metaphor is).
”But what about a treaty!”
Treaties,like Kyoto,must be ratified.
”What if he submits laws to Congress!”
Again,will the Republicans pass them?
If the Republicans cannot be relied upon to fight their political enemy–a man who does not lead the GOP–what can we expect them to do if Romney–who would lead the GOP– behaves like George H.W.Bush or John Mccain?
….”In February, Obama promised more action on immigration: “I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done,” he told a Univision questioner.
That could be an insincere promise to spur Latino turnout in November, or a sincere commitment to ram a controversial and expensive amnesty bill through a demoralized Republican House of Representatives in spring 2013.”….
RRD:So now it becomes explicit.
You see,we must vote for Romney or the poor,helpless,”demoralized” RINOS will just have to vote for anything Obama submits;& then WE will be to blame.
Seriously this is pathetic,why doesn’t the GOP Congress just threaten to rubber stamp Obama’s policies unless Romney is elected?
….”Obama has repeatedly hinted that he will push for a federal redefinition of marriage in 2013. He and his aides have repeatedly said his view of marriage is “evolving,” and in June 2011, he told a White House audience of gay activists that “I have delivered on what I promised. … Now, that doesn’t mean our work is done”….
RRD:Push away;again how will Obama ”redefine marriage”,he cannot change the law on his own?
Who approves these Judges?
How many Republicans voted for Sotomayor and Kagen out of “deference”?
Have you looked at the track record of the Justices appointed by Einshower,Nixon,and Ford?
Or for that matter Justices appointed by Reagan and Bush 1 & 2?
It is a decidedly mixed result;particularly when it came to the ”moderate”, & ”electable” Republicans;(e.g. Eisenhower,Nixon,Ford & George H.W.Bush).
Who gave us Earl Warren?
And who gave us ”moderates” like Powell,Burger,O’Connor, & Kennedy?
Nixon the first two & Reagan the latter two.
It’s true that Liberals almost always pick liberals,but “Conservatives” often pick Liberals.
At this point some may say:”But Obama also said that he would bypass Congress”!
Unless Obama turns the Country into a police state,(& should he attempt to he would be removed from office by the Military),any action he takes would either be reversible,or require Republican approval,UNLESS the Democrats retake the House.
For my part I will continue to push for a alternative to Romney,and to support any Republicans who are even halfway decent in the House & Senate.
