Time to fight fire with fire. Republicans in DC need to simply state the facts and start laying the blame where it's due - at the feet of the democrats.
This president is the most economically illiterate, hypocritical, incompetent, duplicitious, dishonest, treacherous, childish person ever to occupy the Oval Office. Republicans need to start speaking up loudly and clearly and call him on every single one of his mistakes, gaffes, and lies.
They shouldn't give this doofus an inch. Fight him every single step of the way, pointing out why he's wrong, why his ideas won't work, and what the proper course of action is.
