All I have to say about today's vote and the so called compromise is this:
The biggest problem in the local and state Republican party are idiots and consultants in DC making our jobs here 100 times harder.
The dems always do what they are told from leadership and vote in lockstep. They are what we thought they were. The Republicans are always undercut by consultants and people like McCain and Graham who always go on TV and run their mouths against other Republicans.
Out here we have nothing to do with those idiots, but shit runs downhill and we get the fallout and get doubleflanked.
It was predictable, bad tactics, worse messaging, gutlessness, worse policy, and bad all around and some fault was on all sides.
