Dear GOP Pledge Takers...

In Republicans Still Haven't Learned, NRO's Andrew McCarthy writes about the recent deal cut over the extension of the Bush era tax rates and how the GOP's recent "A Pledge to America" cannot be taken seriously. He also makes the case that in addition to agreeing to 100's of billions of new spending against their pledge, they misplayed their cards so badly that they have actually helped the chances for Obama to be holding the winning political hand in 2012.

We haven't even had a chance for the new Congress to be sworn in-- and already the GOP is showing signs they still lack the confidence they need to take any path but the one of least resistance.

America cannot afford to have wobbly kneed leadership in the opposition to blatant statism.  We didn't vote for more of the same big government irresponsibility. We don't consent. Dear GOP pledge is a quote from your pledge:
In a self-governing society, the only bulwark against the power of the state is the consent of the governed, and regarding the policies of the current government, the governed do not consent.

The Pledge to America echoed what America has been shouting for the past two years, but if their first actions are indicative of what we will get from them now-- than we are going to have even bigger problems than before.

So please explain it to us GOP pledge makers. What's the deal? Is this going to be more of say this, do that?
