Pat Buchanan looks at the Obamacare monstrosity as it affects Catholics and their beliefs. Republicans have botched the fight.
“We told you you would lose!” wail the Beltway bundlers of the Republican establishment.
“We told you you would lose!” moan neoconservative columnists from their privileged perches on the op-ed pages of the Beltway press.
“Look at what Ted Cruz and this Tea Party people did to us,” wails the GOP establishment. “Look what has happened to our brand.” And 2014 was looking wonderful.
What a basket of wimps.
While the political and communications strategy of the fight to defund Obama seems not to have been thought through, can someone explain what else a moral and principled Republican party could have done in the continuing resolution, other than try to defund Obamacare?
Have we lost sight of what a monstrosity this is?
