When my friend Hugh Hewitt starts bashing the Republican “leadership” as spineless jellyfish largely AWOL on the most important issues of the day, you know we have reached a crisis point: The Speaker’s and Leader’s staffs, however, don’t show any obvious signs of understanding the new media order or the relentlessness of the president’s program. (Snip) Those crickets would be the American people, just itching for a fight with Obama and the Democrats but finding no one to lead them. If the conservative ranks seem dispirited in the wake of the last election, it’s not because we lost —

If the president breaks the law...you say that. Say it loud. List the laws broken. Shout the list every day. Eventually the people will get it.

You don´t just simper and hope to shave a little percentage off the next tax hike.

Well that is thoroughly depressing; we are ready to fight with no leaders to guide us.

Which conservative will step up to the plate at this precarious time in America´s do-or-die history and say, like Isaiah, "Here am I. Send me." ?

Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party folk and patriots are ripe for a leader to emerge to take the fight to Obama and liberal Democrats. Boehner appears not to be the man. It must be soon however, the tyranny and oppression of King George Obama and Washington Democrats is out of control.

Jobs,the economy and debt/deficit were supposed to be the big election issue which would seem to favor Romney/Ryan but maybe Obama supporters were motivated to the polls because they actually believed Romney would cut spending,mainly welfare benefits.I heard a black woman say she couldn´t vote for Romney because she was a afraid Romney would do away with welfare.Going after SS and Medicare for spending cuts wasn´t a very good idea to run on,scaring seniors.

Obviously,people don´t care about jobs like they did only a few short years ago. Instead they invested their energy into wider government benefits packages.

Why didn´t the GOP fight the unemployment extension.All this did was give people another year off.What´s the justification anyway when unemployment is only 7.8% anyway?

he left dismissed objections to Obamacare by throwing the word racist around but a lot of low info types work in fast food,restaurants
and hospitality and will see their hours cut. I´ll bet if you asked them two years ago,they thought free healthcare was on it´s way.Guess they didn´t know about the unwitting loopholes in the law.

I think I agree with Michael Walsh, but I am too tired right now to get particularly excited. I don´t hate many people, but I detest John Boehner and I´m not really crazy about Mitch McConnell, either. Now where?

The main problem with the Conservative crowd is so obvious a blind man could see it. Every body is waiting for a leader. Quit waiting for some one else to do what each of us should be doing in our areas of influence.
The Constitution starts with We the People and with the Bill of Rights ends with the words, to the people. Everything in between is our responsibility, we are to control and stand in the way of usurpation. Quit waiting start doing.

Good article, but it is too soft on the RNC leadership, whose incompetence and cowardice underlie the problems we face today. These leaders feel entitled to provide a "loyal opposition" instead of an actual alternative vision. No wonder they do all they can to marginalize the TEA. They remind me of nothing so much as the Vichy government: content to let the Germans have the best part of France, in return for pretending they control the rest, so long as they don´t make any waves.

Keep up the bashing and watch the mid terms bring us Pelosi as speaker.

Then we´ll have Pelosi, Reid, Obama destroying what little is left of our freedom.

Of course, that means certain talk show hosts will have great ratings.

Wake up. Don´t be manipulated by these selfish purists.

Reagan knew better and yet these loudmouths are constantly swearing that Reagan is their hero.

We must take back the Senate to protect the US Supreme Court.

I want the GOP to vote according to the principles they say they would support at election time. You told your district you would vote against taxes and raising debt ceilings. Then do it.

The problem isn´t necessarily the leadership or lack thereof. The problem is media, media, media. The media demonize every possible opposition to their God, and mercilessly mock those who don´t agree with them. As long as Pravda of the USSA is control of the message, the opposition doesn´t have a prayer. The problem is not low information voters, but misinformed voters. At least Pravda USSR occasionally tells the truth, which is more than our traitorous media does.

#9 has compared today´s GOP with what I´ve been trying to put my finger on - the Vichy government of France when the Germans took control of France in July 1940, but let the wimpy Marshal Petain French government set up shop in Southern Franch for a while (until Nov. 1942).

Everything Obama and his Thugocracy and Dems (same difference) are doing can be found in WWII times - generally in events leading up to WWII. Even more specifically, our times seem similar to events prior to the invasion of Poland in September 1939 - that month seems to be a popular month for invasions and terrorist activities doesn´t it.

In looking back over U.S. history since I´ve been alive, I do find hope. The American people, once they wake up, seem to do a course correction. I loved reading the Churchill quote in the article. So long as there are those of us with a fighting spirit, I truly believe we will prevail.

Read the story of Gideon and his small band of 300 who defeated the thousands of Midianite enemies who had overrun Israel and impoverished it. There is great hope to be found in this true story in Judges chapters 6:8.

Some people believe in placing blame where the blame belongs. Too many people are displacing their anger onto people in the Tea Party movement when the anger should be directed at the courage less GOP, especially the leadership, who will not use the power they have to answer Obama´s power grabs.
Obama knows THEY will not stop him. If they don´t act they deserve to lose in 2014. Our displeasure should send them a message. Act or get out of the way and let others with backbone fight the good fight.
The blame put on the Tea Party is just a distraction from the failure of the GOP at the national level, the same game Obama plays to distract from his evil doings.

Sarah Palin could lead a growing Tea Party and prevail in rebuilding the Republicans into something that could turn this country around.
However, the Establishment Republicans in Congress want no part of Palin or the Tea Party. Their snubbing of same at the Republican National Convention made that obvious.

Yes, it could be too late for the Republican party to be effective in 2016.
A Third Party also would not be effective in 2016, but 2018 looks to be a Republican/Conservative year. A Third Party, begun NOW, could prevail in 2018.

Thanks to my pastor of 40 years(now in Heaven & military friend of Barry Goldwater´s while holding secure Luke Field in WWII)I learned that the "French underground"(who we glorified)was truly a communist group waiting to take over France. Seems like we have the same scenario here in our Republic. Had to laugh at stupid Geraldo on Fox & Friends when talking about gun control that "Americans were afraid of their own government" - Doocey didn´t make a comment but at least the truth came forward. We really need a leader & Jim DeMint is now at Heritage but Rubio,Cruz & Rand Paul are still aroud.

Screeds like this are pointless and make the writers look ridiculous. Where was the great conservative superhero of Walsh´s imagination who could have successfully taken on Obama?

Oops - I guess I just answered my own question.

And can it with the Churchill stuff, Mr. Walsh. I doubt you´ve ever heard a shot fired in anger in your life.

The greatest tragedy for the nation is Obama but close behind is the lack of leadership on the republican side. I completely understand the frustration and desire to start a third party. The republicans want tea party votes but they take them for granted because they have nowhere else to go and betray them every time. The GOP could learn something from Obama. He was loyal to his most radical base while the GOP take the tea party for granted to chase after votes they will never get. In this case good politics and beneficial policy coincide and the GOP does neither. This is no time for timid leadership, the nation is at stake.

In case you’ve ever wondered, when you take a psychiatrist to dinner (especially a forensic psychiatrist, like me), he doesn’t leave the office 100 percent. No well-trained psychiatrist can. The “third ear” we develop during training – the one that catches meaningful turns of phrase or attempts to be evasive – can’t be left at the office door entirely. When I had dinner with Lou and Linda Pelletier and three of their four daughters, Jennifer, Jessica and Julia, a few nights ago in Massachusetts, I wasn’t trying to evaluate them. They aren’t my patients. But I was listening for discordant psychological

Does Traditional College Debate

It used to be that if you went to a college-level debate tournament, the students you’d see would be bookish future lawyers from elite universities, most of them white. In matching navy blazers, they’d recite academic arguments for and against various government policies. It was tame, predictable, and, frankly, boring. No more. These days, an increasingly diverse group of participants has transformed debate competitions, mounting challenges to traditional form and content by incorporating personal experience, performance, and radical politics. These “alternative-style” debaters have achieved success, too, taking top honors at national collegiate tournaments over the past few years. But this transformation has also

Leaflets calling on Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk to register themselves with pro-Russian separatists may not be the work of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, Jewish groups have said. According to the World Jewish Congress, 17,000 Jews live in the city. The leaflets were handed out by several Balaclava clad men carrying a Russian flag earlier this week as well as being found plastered to buildings near a synagogue. They ordered all Jews aged 16 and older to register with the separatists, pay a $50 fee and report all motor vehicles and real estate in their possession. The flyers also said

British Prime Minister David Cameron used his Easter message to talk about the significance of the holiday as he highlighted the role of Christianity in Britain and the plight of Christians in countries where they are persecuted. He said the country should reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. “All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ,” Cameron said. “The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out.” He mentioned prison ministries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

The debate over campaign contributions is never-ending for a simple reason: Both sides of the argument have merit. On the one hand, of course money is speech. For most citizens, contributing to politicians or causes is the most effective way to augment and amplify speech with which they agree. The most disdainful dismissers of this argument are editorialists and incumbent politicians who — surprise! — already enjoy access to vast audiences and don’t particularly like their monopoly being invaded by the unwashed masses or the self-made plutocrat. On the other hand, of course money is corrupting.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
