Excerpted from Liz Cheney’s “Republicans, Get Over the 2012 Loss—and Start Fighting Back”- Those who counsel that the GOP should move left are wrongheaded or Democrats, or both. Wall Street Journal 3/28/13
If we don’t defend our freedoms now against the onslaught of President Obama’s policies, we won’t have to wait until our sunset years for American freedom to be a distant memory.
President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office. He believes that more government borrowing and spending are the solution to every problem. have to wait until our sunset years for American freedom to be a distant memory.
In one of his autobiographies, the president writes that he felt “like a spy behind enemy lines” during his brief stint working for private industry.
The president has so effectively diminished American strength abroad that there is no longer a question of whether this was his intent. He has turned his back on America’s allies around the world and ignored growing threats.
Al Qaeda is resurgent across the Middle East. President Obama stood by and did nothing when its affiliates in Libya killed the U.S. ambassador and three other brave Americans in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11. Then he and his administration misled the American people about the attack. Today, more than six months later, no one has been held to account. The clear message of this episode to America’s enemies around the world is: Attack us with impunity. You will suffer no consequences.
You can be sure that President Obama would welcome an America in which the Republican Party is preoccupied with remaking itself into a watered-down version of the Democrats.
It is time to defend our values with vigor and courage. We are conservatives. We believe in limited government, low taxes, a strong national defense, individual freedoms, self-reliance, the importance of the family, and the miracle and authority of America’s founding documents.
We know that preventing this president from enacting devastating policies is not obstructionism. It is patriotism.
