So RoJo ran a campaign which was 90% anti-ObozoCare and 10% "small Government.". He was going to be the 'common man' in the Senate, using his accounting acumen to straighten out the books and stop Big Brother. The pompous arrogant Statist was tired and his schtick wasn't selling, so RoJo won.
RoJo made some Conservative-sounding noises in the Senate early on, but that was against the rules. So he was sent to his room by the Senate Daddy, McConnell.
And that was the end of "RoJo the Conservative".
Earlier this year, Daddy McConnell let RoJo out of his room and told him he could play with the other kids, namely, some White House budget types. Of course, there was a condition attached: RoJo had to behave himself and play nice and never, ever, ever again raise Hell about the “greatest assault on our freedom in our lifetime.” or run around saying: "Obama represents nothing less than a threat to turn America into a “socialist, European-style” state.”
If RoJo didn't behave himself, he would have to go back to his room. He wouldn't be able to play with the other Big Boys any more or pretend to be "solving the problem" of Big
By and by, another Conservative came to the Senate. But this one actually did what RoJo had "promised" to do: he threw sand into the transmission of ObozoCare. This was a problem for Daddy, because Daddy wanted to be re-elected and maybe even become the Big Daddy.
So Daddy sent RoJo out with another assignment: RoJo would have to denounce the Conservative and vote against him. Not only that, but RoJo would have to scream and yell at the Conservative. And, of course, he'd have to lie about that screaming-and-yelling stuff, or Daddy would be unhappy and send him back to his room.
RoJo did what Daddy told him, so he can still play with the other boys. He can even go on the radio, so long as he says that the Conservative is a stupid-head, or stuff like that. And RoJo did, because he learned his lesson.
