On the December 21st Cashin’ In, the panel discussed whether the “media love affair” with President Obama is over and good for taxpayers. Near the end of the discussion, Jonathan Hoenig summed up what he thinks should be the Republican slogan for 2014 and beyond.
Everyone knows that the President lied (about ObamaCare). I mean the president’s own staff admits it was a lie, but why isn’t the right getting any traction? Because the right concedes the president’s basic premise, that we are our brother’s keeper. That’s another thing we hear a lot of folks on the right say. So there’s this sense of, “Oh, so what if the President lied? He’s actually doing what’s right, what’s moral – government-controlled health care.” And until the right can actually stand up and present a real alternative - we are not our brother’s keeper, - then I think they can’t get any traction on any of these issues.
If that’s the way Hoenig wants the GOP to present themselves, I don’t think they’ll get any traction from that, either.
