They Just Don’t Get It: Senator Judd[head] Gregg [Updated Below]

20 October 2010 @ 14:48

Now comes before the court one Judd Gregg, part-time Senator from New Hampshire and full-time Dullard from Inside The Beltway, who, even before Election Day, is sounding the call of retreat…

From The Hill, Michael O’Brien reporting [tip of the fedora to Robert Costa], we learn:

A top Senate Republican suggested Monday night that the party’s prevailing strategies to curtail the new healthcare law might not be good ideas.

Sen. Judd Gregg (N.H.), the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, said that repealing the new healthcare reform law — or looking to defund it — were not good options.

“I don’t think starving or repealing is probably the best approach here,” Gregg said on the Fox Business Network. “You basically go in and restructure it.”

That’s a change of pace even for Gregg, who’s been among almost all fellow Republicans in the House and Senate who’ve called for the repeal of the measure, which Democrats passed through Congress earlier this year and President Obama signed into law.

He’s gone from repealing to repulsing and is found guilty of Squishism…so say we all.

Senator Judd ‘Jughead’ Gregg…

…it’s Dog Track Time.

UPDATE at 2021…

Over at The Other McCain, Smitty reminds the Elites of the GOP that there is plenty of room for them beneath a certain kind of combustion-engine-propelled heavy vehicle. 

Dear friend Smitty: may I suggest that we reserve this version of the vehicle for the members of The Stupid Party?…

These two sentences of his should be put on signs, t-shirts, and bumper stickers:

…GOP: the Tea Parties are using you as a matter of convenience, not the other way around. Forget this at your peril.

    There’s been a lot of talk over the past few days of how Democrats are gaining in the polls. What the so-called analysts constantly leave out of their “analysis,” is the fact that Republicans have been coming out in favor of “bi-partisanship.” In all seriousness, why vote Republican (or even vote at all for that matter) if all they’re going to do is carry-on the statist destruction of the United States?

    This is all another Republican “October Surprise.” Remember the last one? Out of nowhere, as if by magic, Bush masterminded Bailout Nation and positioned Democrats as the defender of sound economics (what?). I was convinced then, and I’m still convinced today, it was a massive propaganda scheme to provide cover for the coming stimulus and additional bailouts (which would have happened under progressive McCain* too).

    They’re doing it again. Why are Republicans staging their own “October Surprise” against themselves? See the Goldwater campaign. It was the Republican Party who trounced him, not LBJ. Limited-government conservatism scares the hell out of the Republican Party, way more so than Democratic rule.

    *Sidenote: (It’s my ADD). Conservatives should not let McCain’s record of military service cloud their judgment of a man, if measured by his Congressional record (as he should be), is a traitor to the Declaration of Independence, our founding, and the Constitution. I can only pray Arizonians put him out to pasture.

    Judd Gregg has at least one redeeming quality he promised to retire after his third term and he is. So his unwanted advice to his soon to be former colleagues is exactly that. While he is known as a fiscal Hawk that alone doesn’t make him a conservative warrior and he suffers from the same maladies as most Republicans in that he doesn’t understand his purpose. Which is to utterly destroy the left as a relevant force in our country’s political, social or economic life. As long as Republicans insist on imagining that there is a distinction between the Social Democrats and the Khmer Rouge.

    GOP: the Tea Parties are using you as a matter of convenience, not the other way around. Forget this at your peril.

    Why not:

    GOP: You are the drunk frat girl whom we are shamelessly using until we can find someone with actual principles. Don’t expect us to take you to Homecoming, and remember that your enjoyment of this is beside the point.

    TheCL: Spot-on.

    Adobe: Too many in the GOP Establishment think it’s still the ‘good old days’ of the Advise And Consent Era. It ain’t.

    Roxe: And…we don’t wanna be seen in public with you.
