Time to Fight

Weber, Vin
March 1993
National Review;3/15/1993, Vol. 45 Issue 5, p26
The article addresses the role of Republicans in opposition as of March 1993. In being the opposition, one must learn to scrutinize, investigate, and criticize nominees. Republicans need to fight off the tendency to support the administration. Furthermore, Republicans must unlearn bipartisanship. Although assembling bipartisan coalitions during the terms of former U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush claimed victories for the Republican Party, it does not translate unto effective action. In addition, Republicans do need to be obstructionist or confrontational when broaching the fact that voters chose more Democrats than Republicans in the recent elections.
