After Republican victories in the elections of 2009, the Obama strategy has become increasingly obvious—and obnoxious. The administration means to continue pushing dozens of complicated measures at once, leaving their opponents so confused and exhausted that they’ll be unable to fight back.

In health care in particular, perplexing details help the administration, while clarity and simply-stated arguments serve the opposition. At this moment in political history, the real focus should be on one overriding issue, not many nuanced and bewildering proposals. The big struggle involves the scope of spending and the size of government—expensive new programs will only add to the debt and lead to national bankruptcy. Durable prosperity will only return when our politicians return to fiscal sanity. That’s the issue conservatives must stress—while not letting Democrats go unchallenged in their efforts to distract and confuse.
