Most of John Boehner's article in the December 11 Washington post titled, "A better plan for jobs," instead of being about a plan for jobs is about how everything Obama is doing is the opposite of creating jobs. He berates Obama for the stimulus plan that was actually instigated by Republican George Bush in February of 2008, saying that it's Osama's "job killing policies" that are scaring people.

I read through the whole article and as best as I can determine, here is Boehner's plan for jobs in it's entirety, quoting from the article:

Break down barriers to economic growth.

Small businesses to keep more of what they earn.

Receiving relief from Washington.

Implement all of the above strategy.

"All of the above" strategy leaves us wondering, What above? There's no specific plan to do anything at all. Break down barriers is Republican code for no regulation. Keep more of what they earn and relief from Washington is more Republican code for no taxes.

This is all Republican ideology, and it's only ideology, not a plan. The impetus for Republican ideology is described in The True Believer, by Eric Hoffer:

"They must have the feeling that by the possession of some potent doctrine, infallible leader or some new technique they have access to a source of irresistible power."

The Republicans certainly have the feeling that they have possession of some potent doctrine: Republican ideology. Even though the Republicans have lost the last two elections, they still feel that they are a source of irresistible power. Their all time best representative of Republican ideology, George Bush, proved to be so fallible that no Republican wants anything to do with him. Never mention his name. Never call on him for election support.

Hypocrisy is the most notable part of Republican ideology.
