The Dems are Our Best Asset Says Tancredo

After humbling setbacks in California, New Jersey and Virginia in Tuesday’s election, failing to reclaim two Governors’ seats and losing a number of initiatives on the West Coast, Republicans are zeroing on spending issues for upcoming off year races in 2006.

But not Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.) who suggested a more simple (and humorous) approach. When asked what Republicans should focus on to win elections next year, he said the best strategy would be to highlight the Democrats. He told me off the House floor yesterday:

“They are the best thing we have going for us right now, the Democrats. I mean, I wish I could think of a better issue, but I can’t right now. I just know this: that I take solace in the fact if anybody actually looks at the Democrats they’re going to say “Oh, my God, we can’t do that!”
