The charge of the Right brigade

By Dave Weinbaum



http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | After a debatable start in the Lame Quack Session, Republicans have promised — well, to keep their promises, thus raising the hackles of Dems and the Obama Regime. All of a sudden lefty Congressmen are coming to the defense of what some would say was the bill that killed the donkey: Obamacare.

Following their election mantra to repeal Obamacare, Repubs recognize what Dems lost sight of: the will of the American People. It should be noted that the only Dems bragging or even bringing up Obamacare during the last election were those who voted against it, desperately separating themselves from the puppet strings of Obama, Pelosi and Reid. In case you're from Fishkill , New York , the Dems experienced an election tsunami, not seen since 1938.

I will admit to one insensitive, outlandish cruelty perpetrated by those on the right side of the aisle.

The House Repubs assaulted sensitive Dem and Progressives ears everywhere by reading the Constitution in front of the whole country as their first activity after the swear-in.

The audacity!

Long time Progressive NYC Congressman, Jerrod Nadler whined the Constitutional reading was "ritualistic…total nonsense…propaganda." Yet, he and 549 others in Congress have sworn before G-d and the world to uphold and defend this brilliant document from foreign and domestic enemies. Makes one wonder how many of those who swear the above oath are committing perjury as their first act in office.

Those who wait for things happen are beaten by those who make things happen.

On the legal front, a federal judge ruled the main cash-raising tool of Obamcare, forcing all citizens to buy health insurance or be penalized, unconstitutional. This judgment will be appealed all the way to the Supremes, where chances are its unconstitutionality will be upheld. But the country can't rely on "Hope and Change."

As a political issue, the Republicans must follow though. Reasons?


  • To make Dems explain the inexplicable—how they voted for something they didn't read and still can't explain. And that includes President Barack Hussein Obama.

  • To see how Dems defend something they failed to mention in the 2010 campaign, except to claim they were really against it after they voted for it.

  • To see how our newly elected Repub majority comport themselves in the line of fire. Will they exit left into backroom accommodation or will they stand tall with the voters who put them there?

  • To get as many Dems and lightweight Repubs on the record with a vote or statement about the repeal of Obamacare, as well as President Obama and the sycophants in his administration.

  • Make the repeal a main issue in the 2012 record so we can start the year 2013 with a country-saving correction of our direction.

The bill's repeal is all but guaranteed in the House. The Reid-run Senate is another story. Reid will do anything to protect Obama from a potential veto if, by some chance, it passes the upper chamber.

Either way, it's a winner set-up for Repubs in their quest to grab the remaining 2/3 of government, the Senate and the Presidency. Dems showed they're only capable of personal attacks like the Aqua Buddha accusation in the Rand Paul election, the witch label for Christine O'Donnell or the illegal maid scandal of Meg Whitman. When it came to policy debate, Dems detested them like Bubba in a room having to share the podium with the Obama.

Let's not forget the albatrosses Dems have allowed to continue to drag them down. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have been voted another term as leaders of the Dem Party. Who doesn't believe in miracles after that?

And they're still using the blame-the-last-guy game. Former Speaker Pelosi recently said the shellacking Dems took in November was Bush's fault!

History will be kinder to Dubya than anyone thought.

Right Brigade, one thing—before you "charge," cancel your US Treasury credit cards.

We're way over our limit!
