With the midterm elections 3 weeks away, Republicans are making a concerted effort to win control of the Senate and maintain control of the House. They are using a variety of campaign tactics and in a number of races those tactics are working but in others they aren’t.
The control of the Senate is a huge issue and far more important than many people may realize. Currently, Americans are frustrated with the inability of Congress to act on many issues and when they do act, it’s usually after a Republican compromise giving into Obama’s demands. The approval ratings for Congress have been in single digits for some months and don’t appear to be improving.
The standoffs between the GOP controlled House and Democratic controlled Senate has led to a number of Obama’s executive orders, some of which have been illegal, but no one has been willing to challenge him on them.
If Republicans can win control of the Senate and maintain control of House, they can act together to pass many needed bills and get Congress working in the right direction once again. A Republican controlled Senate could also mean that impeachment proceedings against Obama could move forward and he could finally be held accountable for his many many many illegal actions and treasonous crimes.
So how should Republicans go about insuring a GOP victory? All they have to do is quote Obama. To start with, listen to what former Col and Rep Allen West says:
“During a speech in Roanoke, Virginia in 2012, demonstrated his perception of the rights of the individual and the indomitable entrepreneurial spirit with ‘you didn’t build that.’ If there were ever any clearer indication of whom Barack Hussein Obama is and what he believes, it was in those four words (except for the Muslim call to prayer ‘is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth’). ‘You didn’t build that’ defines Obama and his policies — which according to him are on the ballot this midterm election.” [Emphasis mine]
The ‘you didn’t build that’ quote was a direct attack on the American free enterprise and entrepreneurial system that built this country into the greatness it had. Why would any businessman or woman, whether small, medium or large business, want to support someone who tells them that with all of their hard work and sacrifices that they didn’t build their business?
Republicans need to point out Obama’s wars against the coal and oil industry, Christianity, family values, the military, the First, Second, Fourth and Tenth Amendments and virtually every decent moral value. Then they need to quote Obama when he recently stated:
“I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
I firmly believe if Republicans used these Obama quotes in their campaigns against their Democratic challengers that the GOP would definitely win control of the Senate and be able to hobble Barack Obama and his attempts to assume dictatorial control over America.
