ABSTRACT
The author considers failure of the Republican Party to stand up to the call to stand up against the Democratic Party with the Stimulus Bill in the U.S. He says that the Republicans pandered to the strategy of Rahn Emmanuel calling on the economic crisis as an opportunity for all and became losers to the call of President Barack Obama and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi on the catastrophic effects of not passing the bill. With this defeat, he argues that whatever the Republican Party has stood for has vanished.
