1. They are all what I’ve come to think of as “Jack Moffly Republicans”, cheerful, pleasant individuals with an insatiable need to be liked, “go-along, get-along” personalities who will support any policy of the Democrats if they think they can get away with it with their voters. Today’s affirmative vote on the misbegotten gun confiscation bill is just the most recent example.
2. (And most important), their participation in the Democrats’ schemes adds a false veneer of bi-partisanship and legitimacy to Democrat Party rule and permits those Democrats to defer responsibility to Republicans. Notice that Fudrucker and other looters respond to complaints about sweetheart union deals and wildly out of control budgets by pointing out that we had a Republican governor installed when the groundwork for our current crisis was laid. Happens all the time.
By their own admission, Greenwich (Connecticut) Republican’s have zero influence in Hartford, a fact frequently pointed out by Fudrucker and his crowd when urging the election of their own candidates who might stand a chance to be listened to. So there’s nothing to be lost in denying them our votes and everything to be gained if the Democrats lose their ability to evade responsibility for the results of their policies. Stay home in November; I know I will.
