GOP leadership have learned nothing apparently
Later today the GOP leadership will offer it's plans for legislation to get the country moving in the right direction.....
From Yahoo -- WASHINGTON – Republicans are putting their leading midterm congressional campaign arguments into a new manifesto designed to show they're listening to an angry public and are focused on creating jobs.
GOP lawmakers later Thursday will roll out their "Pledge to America" — a 21-page document filled with familiar proposals to slash taxes and spending and cut down on government regulation, as well as repeal President Barack Obama's health care law and end his stimulus program.
The article went on to say that the proposals are thin on specifics about how republicans would go about implementing this agenda. I think that is a losing move. Voters will want to go to the polls in 40 days knowing exactly what they are voting for rather than conservative platitudes and lip service. These are hard questions to answer but if they don't have the answers now, then they are just more empty, election-year promises and if they do have the answers, why not share them? Unlike democrat voters who fall every two years for feel-good rhetoric, race baiting, and wild promises, smart conservative voters, want specifics on spending cuts, tax policy, Obama-policy rollbacks, etc.
The stealth platform isn't going to cut it on November 2.
UPDATE: You can go here and see the pledge.
