…among liberals, leftists, and RINO pundits around the MSM and the blogosphere: that there’s no possibility of a repeal of Obamacare in 2012. Even if the Republicans try, they won’t be able to succeed. Or they won’t even try.
The meme’s goal? To dishearten Republicans and conservatives further when they’re already feeling down. It’s psychologically clever, and some are buying into it, especially the Mitt-haters (Mitt is just like Roberts! He’s another RINO traitor!), who had calmed down for a while but now are all revved up, at least on some blogs.
I don’t buy it. I think that more people on the right are fired up by this than are disheartened. But I acknowledge that some are disheartened. And believe me, I hold no special faith in the Republicans in Congress. But I think they are committed to this (partly because it’s popular, and they want to be re-elected). And I think Mitt Romney is as well, and I think he will show some leadership if elected.
[NOTE: There's also defunding, by the way, as an option, if not enough Republicans are elected (especially in the Senate) in 2012 to completely repeal Obamacare, or even if Obama remains president and yet the Republicans control Congress. Remember defunding? I spent some time on the issue way back when.]
