The Future – Tea Party Nation


 

The Future – Tea Party Nation.

The Republicans have done the unthinkable.  They reelected John Boehner as Speaker of the House.  There was no compelling reason to do so.  Boehner is simply the worst Speaker in the history of the world.  Reelecting Boehner is like the Detroit Lions going 0-16 and deciding they should keep their head coach. 

 

 What’s the difference between the Republicans of the 112th Congress and the 2008 Detroit Lions who went 0-16?  The Lions had a better season than Congress did.  And the Lions would at least get on the field and fight, which is more than we can say for Boehner.

 

 But Boehner has been reelected and now we have to deal with the future.  What is coming and coming soon?  How do we deal with it?

 

 Coming up in March will be the debt ceiling, sequestration and the end of the continuing resolution that has kept government funded for the last six months.

 

 This is like the massive Battle of the Bulge during World War 2, but instead of General Patton, we have John Boehner.

 

 We can win this fight, assuming Boehner and the Republican leadership will fight.   First, we have two months to get our messaging out.  The messaging is simple, do we want more debt or less?

 

 The Party of Treason wants us to have debt. 

 

 We now have levels of debt that the Greeks wish they had.   Debt only leads us to one place.   National Bankruptcy.

 

 80% of Americans realize this.

 

 This is the story we need to be telling now.  This fight in March is simple.  Do we want more debt or do we want less.

 

 The Republicans must be the Party of less debt.  Obama has given us more debt that all other administrations combined.     He can’t say a word.   Obama trying to lecture America on debt is like Kim Kardashian lecturing us on the sanctity of marriage.

 

 The Republicans must commit to being the Party of less debt.

 

 How do we get less debt?

 

 It is simple. 

 

 We stop spending money.

 

 Republicans within the Congress must not only commit to real spending cuts, they must be ready to shut the government down to force Obama to concede. 

 

 This is the fight that the Republicans must be willing to go to the mat for. 

 

 This is also a fight the Republicans must begin today.

 

 One huge problem Republicans have is that they are absolutely horrible at messaging.   Obama will drone on about the rich paying their “fair share,” while Republicans sit on the sidelines assuming the American people will pick up their message by osmosis.

 

 The Republicans must get someone on board who understands messaging and who can get the Party onboard with messaging the American people will understand.

 

 This battle has a simple message.  Do you want more debt or less debt?  Is debt good or bad?  Everyone knows debt is bad and no one wants more.

 

 If the Republicans message this as a choice between less debt and more debt, Americans get that choice.  Americans understand that.

 

 If John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are left to message this battle, we are lost.
