If Norm Coleman’s prediction comes true, kiss the Republican Party goodbye.
Norm Coleman – the former senator from Minnesota and a prominent advisor for Mitt Romney – suggested over the weekend in an interview that no matter who the Republican nominee is, they are unlikely to fully repeal Obamacare.
The conservative base of the GOP did not bust its butt to return Republicans to control in the House because we like pragmatism, bipartisanship, and tinkering around with Obamacare in an effort to “fix” it. The majority of Americans want it repealed. Obamacare is a malignant tumor on the Republic. If the GOP proves unwilling or unable to cut out that tumor before 2014 — when it goes into full effect — then we conservatives will eviscerate the GOP as a political entity and start over. The party cannot survive without us. Google the sad fate of the Whig Party; it can happen again.
If the GOP doesn’t bleed to get Obamacare repealed, we’ll bleed the party dry. Bank on it.
