‘There’s No Revolt, No Coup,’
Say House Republicans

National Review Online, by Robert Costa

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/18/2012 3:56:04 PM

The House GOP caucus remains supportive of Speaker John Boehner, even though he is open to tax-rate increases. “There is no revolt, no coup,” says a conservative House member, who requested anonymity to speak freely. “Boehner is going to compromise, but people recognize that he’s in a tough spot.” In a conference meeting this morning at the Capitol, Boehner told his colleagues that he would like to extend current tax rates for “99.5 percent” of taxpayers, and let the rates expire on those making more than $1 million. Boehner acknowledged that it wasn’t optimal, but the best “plan B.”

I´m thinking the same thing, #2.

I left the democrats during the Cartr Administration when I realized I was in the wrong party.

Now, I´m starting to wonder if the republicans are the right party for me.

"Read my lips, No new taxes". Yea, been there, heard that from another republican who backed down to the democrats.

Wuss! Cut taxes, not raise them! Cut spending!
Simple easy to understand. pass the cuts and send it to Harry Reid.

Sit back as it is the democrat hands.

John Boehner and other wuss rinos wring their hands over this. They have the vapors.

It is the democrats that have spent and spent. These rinos go along with it. the only thing they are worried about is how they look. Not the damage it does to people and this country.

The weakest man always loses. Time to replace our weakling. Imagine a punk like Zerobama kicking sand in Boehner´s face and Boehner says kick a little less sand and I´ll let you continue to do it.

Compromise, John, has gotten us 16 trillion in debt.

Compromise, John, is not the answer.

I was phoned by the RNC looking for some $ on Friday, Monday, and today. I asked each time if John Boehner was still speaker, "they" replied "of course." I´ve informed them each time, call me back when he is voted out and replaced by a True Conservative. I think today they FINALLY got my message....

I am not sure about the merits, but raising taxes without a budget at all is unsound. No increase in debt limit until a budget.
Republicans also seem too quick to shoot the survivors and bury the wounded.

First, Boehner should let all the rates expire. Return to the Clinton era of tax rates, then cut all spending to same Clinton era levels.

I think democrats need the republicans to save the 98% because they´d be increasing that margin to around 90%, and then taking the blame for increasing large sections of tax-payers.


No extensions on debt ceiling either. It´s you´re only leverage.

FTA: “Boehner is going to compromise, but people recognize that he’s in a tough spot.”
No, Mr/Ms ´Anonymous conservative House member´, America is in a tough spot. The speaker isn´t representing his constituents very well at all, and needs to be replaced.
Unless you´re implying he is being blackmailed to prevent him from doing what is necessary. Then he needs to resign and let someone who is free to do what is constitutional, what is right for America, assume the house speaker´s position.

It´s ludicrous, no budget for nearly 4 years, astronomical debt and rising, not a word about cutting spending just ploys to gouge more out of Joe Six Pack.

Boehner is completely underestimating how he is about to give the Dems back the House in 2014 for acting just like them.

Our elected officials need to be sent home for good.

A video in which an Egyptian woman accuses President Barack Obama of interfering in Egyptian politics has gone so viral in the Middle East, it has inspired knockoffs, photoshopped spoofs and even T-shirts. Normally, I post partial transcripts with videos, but not this time; didn’t want to steal this angry woman’s thunder. Although, here’s a hint: were the video to have an official title, it would undoubtedly be called: “Shut up your mouth, Obama” In any event, this woman’s probably just a “racist.” Although to be fair, Obama did intervene in her nation’s politics to back Morsi, who turned out to be a

It seems a long time ago, that dreadful December night in 1988 when fire and aeroplane debris rained down on the Scottish village of Lockerbie. A generation of Britons has been born unaware of the sense of foreboding we all felt that night, when news broke that a civilian passenger flight had been blown up in mid-air, killing 270 people, by a terrorist bomb concealed in a radio cassette player. It is easy to see why a younger generation finds it hard to understand that we need to be wary of Iran and its nuclear ambitions. But, back in 1988, few

President Barack Obama would veto a GOP-drafted bill that would allow legislators to take agency officials to court if they don’t enforce laws, according to a White House statement. The GOP is pushing the bill through the House because Obama has repeatedly declined to enforce laws he doesn’t like, say GOP legislators. “President Obama has refused to enforce those parts of our nation’s immigration laws that are not to his political liking, has waived portions of our welfare laws, has stretched our environmental laws to accommodate his policy objectives, and has waived testing accountability provisions required under the ‘No Child Left Behind’

Engel and his Field Museum colleagues collected 30 of the birds that had died close to shore, most of them red-breasted merganser and white-winged scoter ducks. Some were floating and others were sealed in ice; all of them were emaciated. “It’s sort of hard to go out and see — you can practically see them dying,” said Engel, who is also an ornithologist.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

Big Tents and Ideological Purity

The United States, like almost all English-speaking countries, has a two-party political system. That means we have big-tent parties, with a variety of competing political strains under each of the two tents. In other countries, such as Italy and Israel, they have small-tent parties, far more ideologically unified and, indeed, often based on a single political idea. (Snip)The recent CPAC conference certainly displayed a variety of political opinions under the Republican tent, from Rick Perry’s clarion call to unleash the genius of American enterprise, to Chris Christie’s moderate approach, to Rick Santorum’s down-the-line social conservatism, to Rand Paul’s libertarian concern

On economic policy, President Obama has consistently and thoroughly followed just the opposite of everything Reagan did. And that is why he has consistently and thoroughly gotten the opposite of Reagan’s results. Reagan slashed tax rates, with the top income tax rate reduced from 70% when he entered office to 28% when he left. (Federal tax revenues doubled during the 1980s.) Early in his first year, Reagan led Congress to cut federal spending by nearly 5%. Early in his first year, Obama led Congress to enact nearly $1 trillion in utterly wasted “stimulus” spending. Reagan deregulated, Obama overregulated. Reagan backed

House Republicans have a worthy suggestion to protect Ukraine and increase the West’s leverage there: Deregulate American energy production and encourage oil and gas exports. The Department of Energy has been reluctant and slow to approve permits for shipping natural gas overseas, for instance, which the market demands from the U.S. for the first time. Crude-oil exports remain illegal. Energy production on federally owned lands has been dropping. A plan to address all of these issues and more can’t be expected to shift the balance of power in Eurasia — but its economic benefits should have compelled us to start

Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep.
