Connecting The Dots

“New GOP mantra: Be positive and prudent,” writes Jonathan Martin, “Overtly in speeches and more subtly with their actions, GOP leaders and potential 2016 presidential candidates are sending a message to their party that they ought not let themselves be radicalized by Obama’s ambitious and decidedly left-leaning second-term agenda. … Would-be GOP standard-bearers are imploring conservatives to not just oppose Obama but devise an agenda of their own that they can present to voters. … GOP officials are calling for a … strategic mix of opposition and accommodation…” PRUDENCE Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan has been the most explicit about this new tack and gave it a name, or perhaps a euphemism [‘prudence’], in a speech in Washington Saturday at a conference of the National Review Institute: prudence. … Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker echoed his fellow Cheesehead … ‘The biggest impetus for Republicans here is that we’ve got to offer a big, bold, positive, optimistic alternative to the president’s agenda.”
