Shallow Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove made the following observation after House Republicans passed their budget, Democrats and liberal pundits have decided it is political kryptonite that will fatally weaken the GOP. Their evidence is Tuesday's special election in New York's 26th district, where Democrat and Liberal Kathy Hocus defeated Republican Jane Corwin for a vacant congressional seat. A Republican had repre- sented the seat for 58 years. Liberals can barely contain their glee. MSNBC's Ed Schultz said the outcome left "Republicans scram- bling" while the Washington Post's E. J. Dionne said, "it will petrify" Republicans. Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.) Said it proved "Democrats have the keys to drive the budget debate and play offense in 2012." At town hall meetings around the country, seniors have shown up to denounce the Ryan plan, said Chris Good in Therefore, Republicans are now "backing away." House Speaker John Boehner said last week, he's "not wedded" to the idea -- at least not in election season. I am in complete agreement with the speaker and let me assert my firm belief defeating ObamaCare should have been the paramount issue for this elec- tion season. The Republicans fell into the carefully conceived trap laid by the Democrats. The Republicans should have known, Medicare does not become insolvent until the year 2024. There is plenty of time to address the issue after they capture the Senate and White House. Mr. Rove summarizes: Democrats' nonchalance towards Medicare's bankruptcy in 2024 and the crushing debt it will leave for our children gives the GOP the chance to depict Democrats as tone deaf, irresponsible and reckless. The country cannot afford Democratic leaders who simply order the orchestra to play louder as the Titanic tilts and begins to slide under. Let us hope it is not too late to defeat ObamaCare, the election hangs in the balance. LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
