Do you think it is possible they are supporting your plan of total destruction as soon as possible?

No.

I don't care if the Republicans support the Democratic plan, as long as they make sure the message is clear that this IS the Democratic plan so that the Democrats get the blame when it all comes crashing down.

Once 0bama and the dems get just ONE republican vote for their legislation, when the legislation fails, they will claim they had bipartisan support. This would be a slam dunk for 0bama to blame republicans and the dupes and lemmings would swallow it whole.

And 0bama has the audacity to claim that republicans are intransigent and aren't willing to compromise. Who was it that rammed 0-care down the throats of the American people, who at that time DID NOT WANT 0-care, and not one republican voted for it and were characterized as obstructionists because 0bama didn't get all he wanted, for example, a singer payer system? Republicans coldn't have obstructed 0-care if they tried, it was because of democrats that 0 didn't get 100% of what he wanted, yet republicans got blamed and it stuck. Republicans will always get blamed and it will always stick.

Republicans, as you suggest, can attempt to get the message out that they had nothing to do with the democrat plan (which would be true) so that, in their estimation, the democrats will get the blame, but 0bama will, as he has so masterfully done to republicans over and over, turn it around on them, claim it was their fault, and it will stick because he has the MSM helping him perpetrate the deceit and fraud.

Republicans just are not very good at political warfare while the democrats play merciless and ruthless hardball and do and say anything to get elected and they are masters at demonizing their opponents and this works. Republicans in response refuse to play their game of hardball for fear of being accused as a racist, or heartless rich people who want to throw granny over the cliff. Repubs play nice with democrats and it always backfires but they continue with this strategy election-after-election anyway. Frankly they are just too obtuse and squishy about standing up for their principles - if they have any anymore.
