Republican Congressman Jack Kingston of Georgia (above) has offered this cynical characterization of how his party-mates feel about prospects of President Obama responding to the threat posed by ISIS:


A lot of people would like to stay on the sideline and say, ‘Just bomb the place and tell us about it later.’ It’s an election year. A lot of Democrats don’t know how it would play in their party, and Republicans don’t want to change anything. We like the path we’re on now. We can denounce it if it goes bad, and praise it if it goes well and ask what took him so long.


Steve M. at NoMoreMisterNiceBlog SAYS Kingston seems to be saying this:


“It’s going to hurt Republicans electorally if they’re seen agreeing with President Obama on anything ever. It risks damaging the Republican brand.”
