Republicans: Stand Your Ground
by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann on Townhall.com
Only the Senate and House Republicans can save Barack Obama now by compromising and lending his extremist legislation the veneer of bipartisanship in order to remove it as a political issue.
If the likes of Sens. Olympia Snow, Susan Collins, Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch and others refuse to go along with Obama on health care and on cap and trade, they will force him to pass both programs as one-party bills. Not only is it possible that, as public support runs out on these measures, he will fail even to get 50 votes to approve them, it is likely that even if they go through, they doom his administration to perpetual unpopularity.
Obama is, quite simply, stuck with these programs as a result of his campaign promises. But they will become larger and larger burdens to carry as their unpopularity increases.
