Miserable capitulation.

Advancing. Ever Advancing.  Erick Erickson

Much cynicism has been expressed over the past month about the effort, led by Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, to fight Obamacare. It was about money or defeating Republicans or something other than what it was about — undermining Obamacare with a united front.

It was always about undermining Obamacare, despite the claims of others. But, those of us who were in this fight against Obamacare, have been quite open that we knew there were side benefits. This fight would expose conservative activists to the frauds they have funded.

Men like Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and others have preached a great sermon against Obamacare, but now conservatives who supported them see that these men have refused to actually practice what they’ve been preaching. They’ve refused to stand and fight with the rest of us.

Read it. That’s his opinion and it has merit. I felt that if you are not going to carry it though, don’t start. But if they hadn’t had this fight over funding Obamacare then we would have never had the moving scenes of our Vets and other Patriots bringing down the hurt on Washington DC.  Still a miserable capitulation.
