Maybe Republicans Should Try Being Popular

While I understand your premise, Ann, there is SO MUCH damage Obama's appointees could do in the remaining years of his Presidency. It would take at least two more terms of a conservative President and legislature to undo it all if, in fact, they could. However, there are surely some popular issues where the Republicans could stake out some claims and woo the press.

Republicans don't control the U.S. Senate and they don't have the presidency. Instead of wasting time and energy in doomed efforts to defeat President Obama's Cabinet nominees or sucking up to illegal aliens, why not focus on issues where Republicans can be off-the-charts popular while forcing Democrats into taking stupid positions?

After the slaughters at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo., Tucson, Ariz., and Newtown, Conn., every sentient person knows we need to do something about institutionalizing the mentally ill and -- at the very least -- keeping guns out of their hands.

That happens to be impossible right now....
