The Wall Street Journal:
Republicans are bashing the president and his agenda, and some are vowing to shut down Washington if they don’t get their way. Behind the scenes, key party members are talking a different game.Because “more of the same, only slower” is exactly what we want from the next congress.
A number of House Republicans, including some who are likely to be in the leadership, are pushing a post-election strategy aimed at securing concrete legislation, even at the potential cost of compromising with Democrats.
“It’s pretty clear the American people expect us to use the existing gridlock to create compromise and advance their agenda,” said Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.). “They want us to come together [with the administration] after we agree to disagree.”
UPDATE: Rush Limbaugh locks and loads.
’NOTHER UPDATE (101020): Nathan has the quote.
I loved how Rush clamped down on Darrel Issa yesterday.
He's right: The pubbies have one chance to get this right. We can throw them out in 2012 just as fast as we're going to throw out the 'rats in 2010. The only difference between 2010 and 2012 is that we'll be that much more angry.
