Being a gracious winner is one thing, but acting like you lost is another.
Outspoken conservative radio host Laura Ingraham appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday and indicated that she wants to see the Republican Party start acting like it won the midterms — because it did — and promote an agenda that will help a Republican win the presidency in 2016.
“You have to hand it to Obama, right? I don’t agree with anything he’s doing. But in defeat, he acts like he won,” she said. “I think the concern for many of us looking at the Republican Party is, in victory, they act like they lose. ‘Oh, my gosh, we have to move toward Obama!’ Obama is gone, OK? If I were a Republican congressman, I would act on behalf of the American people. If the president decides to campaign for the next two years, he’s gonna go off on his campaign stops, let him do that.”
She laid out a plan that she thinks will work for the party for the next two years leading up to the presidential election.
“What Republicans need to remember is the American people are desperate for economic growth and wage increases across the board for the middle class,” she said. “If they work toward that and respond to the will of the people, the consent of the governed, they do that they’re gonna do really well.”
