Old Clinton hand Dick Morris (with Eileen McGann) has exactly my approach to ObamaCare.
He proposes the Churchillian response: In Defeat, Defiance!
That's all very well, of course, but what does he actually propose?
A Four Point Plan, of course, Here it is:
- Restore the Medicare cuts
- Defeat the Democrats in 2010
- Defund the appropriations
- Repeal the plan
But we must learn the lesson of the process we have been through.
[T]here is no such thing as a conservative or moderate Democrat. Blue dogs don't exist in real life. Only yellow dogs...
The days when there were Democrats who refused to follow their radical left-wing party line are over...
There are only two kinds of congressmen or senators: Democrats and Republicans. We have had a national education, and it's time to learn from it...
The Democratic victory on Obamacare will prove the most expensive in the party's history. It will lead to the eradication of their majority, the defeat of more than 50 of their congressmen, the switch of Senate control and Republican domination for decades.
Well. That's the kind of stuff we need after a stunning defeat. Stirring words. A glorious vision. All it lacks is the logistics and the training and the marching and the decisive battles in November 2010 and 2012.
Not to mention Jesse Unruh's famous dictum: "Money is the mother's milk of politics."
