Warriors and a wus

By Bernie Quigley

- For The Hill on 3/23/10

Warriors:

Mitt Romney - “President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation — rather than bringing us together, ushering in a new kind of politics, and rising above raw partisanship, he has succumbed to the lowest denominator of incumbent power: justifying the means by extolling the ends.” – in National Review

Sarah Palin – Health care bill is “a clarion call to action” she wrote in her Facebook.. “In the weeks to come, we can expect [Congress] to try to change the subject, but we won't forget,"

John McCain – “This bill is terribly wrong for America and I call on you to join with me to challenge this bill in every way we can.”

Newt Gingrich - “This will not stand.”

. . . and a wus:

Scott Brown - Boston Globe: “As his fellow Republicans girded to oppose health care legislation in the Senate this week and readied a nationwide repeal effort, Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown said yesterday that he was not ready to join those efforts and was keeping his options open. By last night, Brown had clarified his position, promising to vote against the Democrats’ health care reconciliation package and pledging to support GOP repeal efforts. He said his earlier remarks were mischaracterized.”
