Charlie Cook asks ‘Do Republicans need an intervention?’

in Uncategorized by

Charlie Cook: “Here’s a question for conservatives and Republicans: Going into the 2012 Election Day, or even in the last few days before Election Day, did you think Mitt Romney was going to win? A couple of months ago, did you think the strategy of threatening to shut down the government or prevent raising the debt ceiling, to force the outright repeal or defunding of Obamacare, would really work?” 

“So the question is whether conservatives and Republicans should begin to worry if their instincts–specifically, their judgment on matters of politics and policy–are a bit off. Maybe ‘spectacularly wrong’ would be more accurate.”

“It may be time for the GOP’s Non-delusional Caucus to stage an intervention. Otherwise the party may be headed for some voter-administered therapy.”
