When did the "Big Lie" become the official strategy for the Republican Party? [View all]

In my opinion, it began when Kevin McCarthy made his sojourn down to Mar-a-Lago, about a week after the attack upon our Capitol. When he returned, he had completely changed his tune from a week earlier. He no longer wanted to talk about how he pleaded with Donald Trump for help as the entire House was being hunted down, as the Capitol police were being assaulted. From that moment forward, he did not want to talk about it and he did not want anyone in his caucus to talk about it.

In my opinion, Trump requested that McCarthy come down to Mar-a-Lago. He wanted to discuss what the message should be going forward. The one issue that he believed was verboten for the Party was any talk about an insurrection or attack upon our Capitol. That was an issue they could not win.

They could spin and survive the Big Lie but they could not spin the attack upon our democracy.

The Republicans in the House, except for a couple of exceptions, bought into the new strategy, hook, line, and sinker.

Liz Cheney would not shut up about the attack upon our Capitol and thought there should be a Commission to determine all the facts. In my opinion, that is why they are going to vote her out of the gang this Wednesday.

The big mistake was made when McCarthy made the trip to Mar-a-Lago.
