In response to Henry VIII comment about choosing battles wisely, there is choosing your battles and not fighting at all. At the time the US got into WWII the overwhelming consensus at the time was the war was already over. We went there to hopefully stop the disaster from taking over England. And by the way since when did losing a battle ever ever ever ever stop the left. They never give up, NEVER. They are relentless. Republicans turn and run as soon as someone shoots back. Say what you will about Ted Cruz, but at least he can articulate his message. Can anyone say that about the speaker of the house or any others in the Republican leadership?

I understand not fighting a fight that you know you cannot win. But as when Trent Lott gave in on the government shut down whenever that was, the Republicans caved as soon as they got any blame at all. I believe had Trent Lot stuck it out, the country would have learned that the scare tactics of the left were lies and that their social security checks would still arrive. The lie about a "government shutdown" is that there is so much that is automated about government functions it is nearly impossible to shut it down, unless the President actually takes action to stop stuff like closing a monument that is an open air monument that has no controlled access like the WWII memorial. He was on the verge of taking a lot of heat for that and then the crepe eating surrender monkeys of the Republican party snatched defeat out of the mouth of victory. I guess we should rename the Republican party the French party.
