Great argument. The same thoughts that I have had. I usually agree with Dennis but he is dead wrong on this one.

Dennis is completely wrong about this. He thought he could defeat Obamacare when it was working its way through Congress. He lost that fight. We arrive at the one point when Republicans have some leverage and constitutional authority to defeat Obamacare and he opposes their effort. When does Dennis think Obamacare will be repealed? How does he think we are going to back out of Obamacare once it has been implemented and the medical profession has been transformed? There may be no way back. We will never know how Ted Cruz's tactics would have worked if there hadn't been so much pushback from Republican leaders and commentators such as Dennis. We will never know where we would be if the Republicans had held out a little longer. If its not worth the sacrifice of having national parks closed for a while to prevent the country from being fundamentally transformed then we are doomed.

Have Conservatives Lost Their Compassion?

It is impossible to communicate a message of personal responsibility without it sounding harsh. It is just like when a parent tries to raise responsible kids the kids will often make accusations of being treated unfairly. If the conservative values mean anything then the economy and culture will fail if we continue down the liberal path. If this happens the most vulnerable people will suffer the most. This is what has to be conveyed. Not a watered down pandering message.

Missing from the discussion by Medved about the so called overreaction to Obama winning a second term is the possible consequences of an Obama second term. Most reasonable main stream conservatives spent the years leading up to the election warning about the consequences of Liberal policies. If in 2016 not much has changed than conservatives will have lost all credibility and will never win another election. However, these warnings weren't just a campaign strategy they were made by real people believing that liberal policies will send our country into an economic tail spin and increased worldwide chaos. if there is any truth to the forecasts by conservatives about our country's future than the reaction is warranted.
Any decrease in government spending means that people will receive less "stuff" from the government. No matter how the Republicans play it they will be vilified if they play a part in this. No matter how you look at it reducing disposable income on high earners by increasing their taxes will change their spending habits, greatly affecting the economy. It's an impossible political situation. Its more than likely the economy will go into a tail spin next year and then maybe voters will look to the Republicans to pull the country out of the mess. Hopefully it's not to late.

How Republicans Can Find Themselves

As every parent knows you can try to teach your children some lessons based on your experience which often doesn't work or let them make mistake and learn from their mistakes. Republicans tried to explain to the general population how the economy works and how the current spending trends are unsustainable. Also how important the military is in a dangerous world. They weren't paying attention. If we can't convince the electorate to vote for a president who supports policies that make the economy solvent and the country safe then the country is going to face some tough times ahead. The people who voted for Obama will soon find out what they have done.

It seems that everyone thinks of the Republican warnings about the economic problems we will face with another Obama term as just a campaign strategy. Don't you get it. With Obamacare, tax increases, high unemployment, and an administration that is hostile towards business we will face a dismal future. The people who are celebrating now will be looking around them in a year or so wandering what happened. They have no idea what has produced prosperity in this country. Many of the people who were looking for Obama to help them with government assistance will be hurt the most. Good luck.

Liberals have no idea how prosperity was created in this country. Much of the poor in this country live better than most of the people on earth. Much of the media portrays Republican warnings about where the economy is headed with Obama's policies as a campaign strategy. Many of us think it is reality. With Obamacare, the debt, raising taxes, and the general hostility towards business it does not look good for the US economy. Obama supporters may be celebrating now but within a year they will begin to wander what is happening. Many of the Obama supporters who are at the lower rungs of the economic ladder will be hurt the most. Hang on for the ride. You have no one to blame but yourselves.
