Apparently, to be a true Republican one must oppose Obamacare unequivocally, and Nicolle Wallace has failed that test. So, it's Heathering time, courtesy of an Oct. 15 NewsBusters post by Mark Finkelstein:
Nicolle Wallace is the perfect MSNBC kind of Republican: the kind who isn't sure if she opposes Obamacare.
On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough was seeking to make the point that while Republicans are divided over tactics, they are ideologically united in opposition to Obamacare. To demonstrate his thesis, Scarborough asked Wallace whether she supports Obamacare, taking it for granted that she would express her opposition. Amazingly, Wallace responded that she "wasn't sure anymore," then quoted her [former Bush aide] husband who had wondered "what do we hate about it?" She did then catch heself and admitted to not supporting Obamacare on the grounds that the government is not a competent deliverer of healthcare. Too late: Wallace had already betrayed her RINO roots.
If someone, asked whether they support Obamacare, does not instinctively respond in the negative, given that the law represents everything that opponents of big government disdain, then that someone is no Republican, let alone a conservative.
Good job, comrade Finkelstein! Your fellow MRC apparatchiks will surely reward you for your commitment to ideology above all else, including reason. Wallace will soon be under your tutelage at the NewsBusters re-education camp.
