Permanent minority...? Or maybe not?

Seems the GOP may be like the GOP in the days of old when they were content to take what scraps the democrat leadership gave them. You remember...the days before Newt Gingrich arrived and built a majority on conservative principles. We'll see what happens, but it doesn't look all that good right now. Normally, I don't agree with Rush Limbaugh.
Obama is “obviously more frightened of me than he is Mitch McConnell. He's more frightened of me, than he is of, say, John Boehner, which doesn't say much about our party."

On this, Rush is right.

Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., did not take kindly to this assessment in an interview with Politico Tuesday.

“I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach,” Gingrey said. “I mean, it’s easy if you’re Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or even sometimes Newt Gingrich to stand back and throw bricks. You don’t have to try to do what’s best for your people and your party. You know you’re just on these talk shows and you’re living well and plus you stir up a bit of controversy and gin the base and that sort of that thing. But when it comes to true leadership, not that these people couldn’t be or wouldn’t be good leaders, they’re not in that position of John Boehner or Mitch McConnell."

Seems that the House GOP leadership AND John McCain are going to oppose Obama's stimulus plan now. Could it be? Are the republicans finally going to get their act together? Let's hope.
