    NOPE.

    Their first priority is defeating Obama in 2012.

    And they're so arrogant and clueless, that they have no problem coming right out and saying it.

    Their first priority is two-fold:

    Make sure Obama is a one term president AND to dismantle the Heathcare Reform Act, piece by piece if necessary.

    They're not going to touch healthcare
    because they know that when push comes to shove
    piece by piece the American public wants to keep it

    But they'll lie about it and demonize it so the brainless among us
    will repeat what they say

    An entirely logical plan. One in which I shall be a major player.

    Agree completely. Should not be too difficult to raise $$$ for the 2012 election.

    It's only "logical" if you think you can win elections without the Independent vote.
    The reason the Repubs won this election is because the Indies broke for the Repubs.
    But the Indies DID NOT vote for a bunch of partisan witch hunt investigations of Obama.
    Hard right Repubs did - but Indies did not.
    They voted to give Repubs a second chance.
    If the Repubs don't focus on creating jobs and cutting spending and working with the Dems to reduce the National Debt - which is what the Repubs promised to do - the Indies will quickly have buyer's remorse about their votes for Repub candidates - and will vote heavily Democratic next time.

    Which will make it impossible for the Repubs to defeat Obama.

    The Repubs and Repub voters like you, are very much mistaken if you think the 2010 election was a mandate for the Republican party to do whatever it wants.
    Repubs need to stay focused on doing "the people's business" - or they'll be out on their asses in two short years.
