Just because the Republicans hold the House does not assure a lame-duck Presidency. The Republicans control the house now and have given Obama everything he wants. And when they make a noise, he just uses Executive Orders to outflank them. Everyone should read "They Fired the First Shot," which explains the whole calculated timing of each Executive Order and how it is intended to nullify the power of Congress.

Gee, I'm glad our Generals in World War II didn't adopt that "progressive" strategy; else we might still be digging out of Hitlerism. Victory means little steps of victory and not withdrawal or compromise. You do NOT arrive at the ultimate goal by giving ground, inch by inch, to the enemy. Boehner et al are working with the enemy and not against them.

You said: "In war, losses are expected- and we won't win with the likes of McCain, Boehner etc. I'm not getting my private boat to go save the likes of them." A good soldier goes back for his fellow warriors in the fight, but you are correct. McCain, Boehner have already gone over to the other side. Their capitulation is all but complete. It is a waste of time to try and save them at this point. Just unelect them! Meanwhile, I do not think Dr. Sowell has the stamina of mind any longer or the mindset of victory to be our leader in battle, so I disagree with you on your last statement.

Good point. And Boehner et al are doing everything they can to snuff out that flame of hope that we are finally, as a people, beginning to fan into a fire.

You said: "Thank you, but we'll stand our ground and fight honorably as did Washington at Trenton." Beautiful!

Yep. And all of these battles were the testimony of heroic stands of victory by the few!

A lovely sarcastic diatribe that gets home the point nicely!
