I can’t make this up. I saw this article and wanted to check it out a little bit closer because I though this was a Democrat saying this, but to my surprise it was a Republican talking about his own party.
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) actually pitched the idea not once, but twice to his Republican colleagues that they (The Republicans) should position themselves against the Obama Administration as an “Insurgency”.
Mr. Sessions goes on to say that “Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban and that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person’s entire processes. I’m not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. … I’m saying an example of how you go about [it] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with.“
OK, so you’re saying that the Republican Party should take its tactical ques from the Taliban. Are you for real?
Before I continue on let me ask you a question just between me and you. Were you smoking with Michael Phelps, because you must be high to think that the American public of any political persuasion is going to go for that one?
Now if that’s the spirit of bipartisanship you’re talking about then give me partisan politics again. Who is in control here? I don’t think Rush Limbaugh would go that… well maybe he would go that far.
I guess change is more difficult for some to embrace than others.
