Winning the Election Means Zilch If We Don’t Win the Agenda

Strident Conservative, Red State

GOP leaders won’t work to overturn OCare. They won’t address huge fed. spending until 2015. They won’t use the power of the purse to stop O’s agenda. They won’t stop amnesty. They will do whatever it takes to “work with Obama” to get things done.

McConnell already surrendered the power of the purse back to Obama by saying there would be no gov't shutdowns. Levin argues McC has given up the biggest leverage we have against Obama in trying to bring down the debt & stop this runaway spending.

Now We Can Get Congress Going

John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, Wall Street Journal

"Republicans will return the focus to the issues at the top of your priority list. Your concerns will be our concerns. That’s our pledge." They promise to tackle such issues as ISIS, Obamacare, school choice, debt, the tax code and more.

Spinning Election as Repudiation of Tea Party

Rush Limbaugh, RushLimbaugh.com

“And if the Tea Party shows up in enough strength for the Republicans to win in a wave, it's gonna be because the Tea Party is doing whatever it can to stop Obama, which is what this election is about.  It's not about stopping the Tea Party, for crying out loud!”

Tuesday Could End the GOP

Dan Riehl, Breitbart

The GOP is poised to win today only because the Dems are having a bad year, not because they're having a good one. And an estab. GOP that by Mitch McConnell's own admission sought to "crush" it's own base in the primaries can't blame conservatives, or Tea Party-aligned candidates. 

McConnell: A Repub. Congress Will End Gridlock

Rebecca Kaplan, CBS News

Boehner and McConnell Must Lead on Ebola

Erick Erickson, Red State

This should be a no brainer. In an election year when the GOP will not even offer the hint of an agenda because they are playing it safe, this is a safe play. They should show leadership on this issue where Barack Obama is failing to lead.

GOP Tagline Through 2016: ‘We’re Not Them’

Tom T. Florida, Red State

Thirty-five days until the Nov. election and the GOP has long since gone to ground. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Boehner, McConnell and Co. had members locked in a basement in the Capitol, the federal witness protection program has nothing on the GOP when it comes to the art of disappearing.
