Let’s be clear. If Romney wins in November, we are not out of the woods. We’ve only stopped the bear from attacking us. There’s still a lot of work to do. Republicans are also socialists. They tend to be a slower moving train. They hope to win the liberal dependent classes to vote for them by proposing a program like George Bush’s prescription drug program. It never works.

To be fair, O’Donnell would not give Culberson a chance to explain his position, but the question was simple: Are these existing programs socialistic, and if you had been in office when they were up for a vote, would you have voted for them? The questions were simple and direct as the answers should have been: Yes or No?]
