The current state of the GOP brings to mind the surviving Marines in Aliens, with no shortage of demoralized hacks lamenting their inability to resist by channeling Private Hudson: “Maybe you haven´t been keeping up on current events but we just got our a**** kicked, pal!” (Snip) The only thing that is good for this country right now is defeating Obama’s leftist agenda, fully, completely and in detail. You can’t work with him, you can’t compromise with him, you can’t convince him. He’s a progressive Terminator and the Constitution is Sarah Connor. You have to beat him, and that means
Comments: Wow. After reading this, I sure feel a lot better. Can I nominate this guy for Coach/Cheerleader of Conservatives?
The hardest part of any kind of GOP comeback is the media being fully in the tank for Obama,no mater how far he steps over the line.
The current crop of people he´s lining up for cabinet posts are a disgrace but the media will usher them through by attacking GOP senators who oppose them.
The government needs to borrow money to spend but according to the idiot at CNN the debt ceiling has nothing to do with spending.That´s an example of how twisted these people are in order to support Obama´s destruction of this country.
Obama supporters have been brainwashed into thinking that whatever damage Obama does,it´ll magically exclude them.The only reason Obama didn´t raise taxes on the middle class is because it would smack union workers who are loathe to pay for their own excess. Obama´s Robin Hood meme will never work because most of the wealth in this country is held by his supporters.
Obama has borrowed every dime of wealth redistribution,racking up $6 trillion more in new debt at the blink of an eye.
Obama slandered his own country on foreign soil when he said he wished he didn´t have to go through congress.
Obama wants to save one child´s life by sweeping gun laws while the government has paid out over $500 million to planned parenthood to murder close to a million babies the last 3 years.How is a 5 year old child any different than one in the womb,just at at different part of their growth cycle.
The GOP has fight in them--that´s not the problem. The problem is they consider we the people to be the enemy. The GOP likes big government and are fine with Obama. The biggest reason they like Obama is they can use him to silence us. The GOP went straight to the NY Times after Obama was re-elected and portrayed the House as completely defeated and somber, accepting that Obama won and now we must do what he wants, must have no more disagreements, it´s all over now. The GOP is already on the road to take over our primaries, making sure we don´t get more people like Ted Cruz (whose opponent they supported). Then we have the Main St. Partnership, a GOP funded group to seek out and fund both Repubs. and Democrats. They´re looking for Repubs. who believe in compromise.
Boehner should not have been reelected speaker. The GOP needs to come up with a "Newt Gingrich" type, who could tie Obama up in knots and break it off in his wazoo. Playing nice with these Democrat fanatics is long past over. The Americans whose votes really count will back the GOP all the way if they would just show some backbone and resist the tyranny and bullying of King George Obama.
The GOP will never win over new voters by governing as if playing a game. If the other side is acting that way, then the GOP needs to act like the adult in the room. Adults look for "win-win" opportunities. Adults describe the problem and then set out to fix it.
For example, instead of whining forth a budget, offer up a budget. Say, "If you think it can be better, add in your ideas or offer an alternative, but this is a requirement of government and we are doing our jobs." Offer legislation...not the in-your-face type that is there just to wag a finger at the other side, but sensible stuff that can be a negotiated settlement. Show that the Republicans can take action instead of just whining.
Troll #9, do some research and let us know how many budgets the pubbies in the house sent over to the senate last year - that reid sat on Hint: it was greater than 0 and less than 100. We´ll be waiting (not).
#9, a prime example of a low-information and willfully misinformed ´person´. This is the same huffpo refugee that comes to spew the LPs gun confiscation talking points to see if anything will stick among the uninformed
Cory Booker must have been unavailable. Josh Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said in a tweet on Friday that he saved four people after a car accident and included a photo of himself standing next to what appeared to be an overturned vehicle inside a house. "Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.", the tweet read. Romney, who lives in Utah, told NBC News he was driving his family home from Thanksgiving dinner when the car sped by, went
We have a deal. After years of false starts, mutual recriminations and steadily escalating pressure, Iran has finally agreed to accept real limits on its nuclear program. In his statement Saturday night announcing the agreement, U.S. President Barack Obama called it an "important first step" and declared that diplomacy had "opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure." (snip) But we’re still a very long way from Tipperary on this one. And we should be careful about putting on the party hats and breaking out the champagne—at least for now, anyway. And here are five reasons why.
Nov. 22 falls on the Friday before Thanksgiving this year, just as it did 50 years ago. And that extraordinary day in 1963 began on the Hill in ways that would seem familiar to the congressional denizens of today. (Snip) As was the custom, then as now, the chore of acting as presiding officer had been parceled out to several of the freshmen with the lunchtime slot assigned to the youngest in the class, 31-year-old Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. He was in the chair when his brother was killed. And from that instant, the scene at the Capitol unfolded
Before President Obama was elected, the United States was known as one nation under God — but the Obama Administration seems to think otherwise. Organizing For America published an email Sunday suggesting the greatest nation on the face of the Earth owes its allegiance to another deity. David Axelrod write that “we’ve made serious progress as a nation under President Obama.” You can read his edict in its entirety below. No wonder the Democratic National Committee voted to remove the Almighty from their party in 2012. They only have room for one God.
Second-term presidents in the past 30 years have had some pretty embarrassing news conferences, full of frank admissions of failure, submissive spasms of shame and groveling, grieving apologies. Bill Clinton had to admit that he actually did have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky; George W. Bush finally thought of something he might have done wrong; his dad had to explain all those new taxes after his unequivocal pledge; and even Ronald Reagan ate crow over the Iran-Contra affair. But there has never, ever, been a more pitiful presser than the one conducted last week by President Obama.
The continuing attention devoted to the blunders, incompetence, and lies surrounding the Obamacare rollout is much deserved. But we shouldn’t forget that the President’s health-care monstrosity is merely the latest and biggest of scores of government entitlement programs suffering from the same flawed progressive assumption––that government “experts” armed with coercive power alone can solve problems better left to the states, civil society, and the free market. In reality, such programs relentlessly metastasize, increasing as well fraud, waste, abuse, and costs. One such program is SNAP, the kinder and gentler name for what we used to call food stamps. Apparently the
While Barack Obama’s grotesque lie, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it!” haunts millions of Americans who are learning first-hand that the exact opposite is true, The One, in concert with corrupt RINOS and Democrats (whom are automatically understood to be universally corrupt), is counting on another WHOPPER to codify his amnesty nightmare into federal law. With respect to amnesty, the equivalent Obama lie is, “Once we pass reform (AKA, Amnesty), we will secure the borders!) Translated: If you like American sovereignty, language, and culture you CAN KEEP IT——if you pass amnesty!
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
