ELECTION CONSEQUENCES

elephantgop.pngAs The Mason Conservative noted earlier today (here), the word wars have begin. Chris reports the following quote from this article.

“Even if Bob has a message, he is not a good messenger,” said one Republican caucus insider, who asked not to be identified because he has to work with Marshall.

Consider that the source of the quote is the Washington Post and that this “caucus insider” is too cowardly to speak openly. Perhaps that is why Delegate Bob Marshall emailed this article to his friends. Sometimes it is our friends that make us proud, and sometimes it is our enemies.

Speaker William J. Howell led the Republican House caucus in making a very bad decision. Anyway you look at it, that rotten transportation bill, HB3202, has been a debacle for Republicans. Any Republican who voted for that rotten bill broke faith with the people who voted for him or her.

  • HB3202 is a tax increase. Don’t Republicans know our taxes are high enough?
  • HB3202 is unconstitutional. Don’t Republicans take their oath of office seriously?
  • HB3202 adds another layer of government. Don’t Republicans advocate less government?
  • Instead of trying to stop it, HB3202 taxes crime (i.e., abuser fees). Don’t Republicans call themselves crime fighters?

Howell failed to provide Republican leadership. Instead of providing leadership based upon Republican Party principles, Howell led the caucus in acquiescing to a Democratic Party minority and Democratic Party principles. Then when Governor Tim Kaine amended HB3202 and made a bad bill even worse, Howell acquiesced again.

If Republicans want to mend their fortunes, the Republican caucus must replace Howell. Delegate Bob Marshall put it this way:

“They can’t blame this on George Bush,” Marshall said. “George Bush wasn’t out there raising taxes.” (from here)

The Republican caucus must elect a capable conservative leader, one committed to Republican Party principles. If the Republican caucus cannot do that, its members do not deserve to win elections.
