GOP memo urges lawmakers to blame White House 'grinches' for Christmas delays

Always the blame game.

As usual, the GOP has no solutions

That is what both parties do ALL the time. If there is a crisis happening and you aren't in power, you blame the other side. And, if you are in power you downplay the crisis or blame the other party for be obstructionists. This is nothing new or surprising. One of the things that upsets me about politics, and I think turns many people off, is how many people and politicians change their opinions on things not because they really changed but because the power shifted.

The filibuster is a great example. When Democrats were in the minority the filibuster was considered vitally important. Then Sen. Obama had this to say, "If the majority chooses to end the filibuster and if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate, then the fighting and the bitterness and the gridlock will only become worse.” And, of course at that time many Republicans were in favor of scrapping it. Now, because the power has shifted so has the ones making the arguments. I guarantee you that if the GOP takes control of the Senate in 2022, Dems will then argue that the filibuster must be preserved and their arguments from now will be ignored, just as the GOP arguments for getting rid of it before is now being ignored.

I hope that eventually we can get back to being a country were such rules are agreed upon by all and isn't contingent on whom is in power.

[quote]The Republican Study Committee (RSC) will send a new memo to lawmakers on Thursday detailing how to blame White House 'grinches' for Christmas delays.

And tonight, and every day until Christmas, Fox News and OAN hosts will hammer the message home.
