Grover Norquist: Mitt Romney Will Do As Told
"All we have to do is replace Obama. ... We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don't need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget. ... We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don't need someone to think it up or design it. The leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate. [...]
Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared." -Grover Norquist CPAC 2012
I am curious as to how this is a "change for republicans" as he states. George W. Bush was not exactly making policy. He simply approved of anything and everything that the republican super majority wanted. He did not use one single veto during the 100% republican control period between 2000 and 2006. Thus it was really not just Bush that lead us to ruin. It was 6 years of unbridled republican control.
