Stupid Party (Again) Misplaying Golden Opportunity

So the morning brings news that the Speaker of the House, Rep. Blubbering Oompa Loompa, and his Top Men  in the Stupid Party’s hierarchy, have decided to acquiesce to the demands of the Visigoths and put forward a… well, I don’t know what to call this thing.

Via Gabe at Ace’s Place:

The short version of the leadership’s plans: the House will pass a CR that defunds Obamacare and send it to the Senate to see if Senate GOP can make it stick. The House, anticipating that Senate Dems will strip out Obamacare defunding, will also pass a 1-year debt ceiling increase in exchange for an Obamacare delay until 2015, some tax and budget reforms, and the Keystone pipeline.

The longer version notes that this is essentially a challenge to Senate conservatives to put their money where their mouths are. They’ve been slamming House GOP members as, among other things, part of “the surrender caucus.”

These guys in the Stupid Party’s “leadership” have no intention of ‘defunding’ Obamacare, and everybody knows it. Gabe’s fellow CoB Moron DrewM makes a good case for the defunding gambit, but I think it’s the wrong way for the Stupid Party to play this game. DrewM wrote:

We can’t make this about numbers or abstract constructs. We aren’t doing this to get back at Obama, we don’t care about him. We aren’t against him or ObamaCare we a[re] for Americans who have made it clear they don’t want this law and this plan. This is what the GOP was sent to DC to do. You’re welcome America.

The challenge in a fight like this is there are hundreds of GOP voices and some will be saying stupid things. The media will find them and highlight them. Meanwhile the administration will speak with more or less one voice and the media will cover up when they go off script.

He’s right; 100% correct. No matter the facts, the Make Believe Media (MBM) will attack the Stupid Party. Everyone knows this….

And that is why what the Stupid Party is doing is wrong.
