Krauthammer: Senate fiscal
cliff legislation ´a complete
surrender on everything´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 1/1/2013 7:58:51 PM

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer speculated that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor might try to replace John Boehner as speaker of the House. “It’s possible this is the prelude to a challenge Thursday to Boehner’s leadership by Eric Cantor,” Krauthammer said. “I think that would be quite naked to do it at this late hour, as a result of this split over the vote. Look, there are a lot of conservatives in the Republican caucus in the House who hate the bill

Comments:
Strong words from the good doctor. A lot of people probably will disagree, but we´ll have to wait and see if it does any good.

The Republican Party needs to figure out what it actually represents that is a positive alternative to the Democrats, then hold to whatever that is.

Right now, there is no cohesive message because there is no strong leader to keep them in line behind a direction they all want to go. Good leaders get their people to focus on what´s important and agree to disagree on what isn´t.

FTA- " Krauthammer said that if the House rejects the Senate fiscal cliff bill, Republicans should start over with a clean slate in the new Congress."

“They will probably be enough with all the Democrats to pass this,” Krauthammer said.

‘We’re going to introduce the cuts Thursday — a clean bill. None of the other stuff in it, like the wind power credit and all of this other stimulus junk.’”

The House passed a clean bill like this last June ( only 19 Democrats voted for it )
and it died in the Senate.
Reid would not allow it to come to a vote.
I don´t understand how Dr K thinks Democrats would go along with this now
when they haven´t before.

The Republican Party, along with our Republic, died on 11-6-2012.

What little is left of the Republicans are just surrendering. A little sputter here, a little sputter there, and then surrender.

The Republican Party of today is the France of political parties here in the USSA (United Soviet States of Amerika).

Sarah Palin´s insight that reform, of the magnitude that is now needed, must be swift and relentless is sounding more prescient every day. The GOP is proving incapable of tying its own shoes. I´ve been dead set against third party talk till now, but what on earth is the alternative? Decades more of complete surrender?

The GOP lost the debate long ago when it embraced leftwing Democrat schemes like Social Security and Medicare. Instead of vowing to dismantle these socialist-creep projects (and so many others) that nowhere can be justified in the Constitution, the GOP vows to engrave Democrat-concocted Big Government entitlements in stone so that dependency and collective guilt can never be erased from the American experience. Thus, ceding the "helping people" argument to the Left from the start, it has no principled leg to stand on when it counts. It has shot itself in both feet. Things that can´t go on, won´t. The GOP can´t go on.

I´d have your back, Sarah. Many others now too, I strongly suspect. "Common Sense Party"? "Conservative Party"? or just "Tea Party"?

I did not think they would put up no fight. I did not think they would surrender like that. Boehner absolutely must go and yet he seems to have some stranglehold . He is great at consolidating his own power, just worthless at being a Strong leader! If there is any one person left with an ounce of fight, he/ she must get rid of Boehner!

We keep criticizing the Republicans for refusing to fight, but with every setback the posters on this site are quick to whine:

"The United States is dead"

"Let´s form a third party"

"I´ll never vote Republican again"

"etc."

How about if, instead, WE FIGHT to reclaim the Republican Party? There seem to be enough of us to get it done.

We are becoming quite fractured here. I am completely in agreement with #14 - exactly what I would have said had I arrived here a little sooner, and said quite likely better than I would have said it.

#16 and #17: Your posts cause me to think what you might propose.... It´s one thing to say, Reform the GOP!, but quite another to do it when they ignore those of us who put them in their congressional jobs. I´d be thrilled to stay with the GOP and fight to make the necessary changes from within, but how do we get them to listen to US again, when they´ve all become so entrenched in the DC ways? Their elections to their positions start with us, but apparently their principles end within two years of exposure to and pressure by their own party leaders.

Cantor? Hmmmm...... I have to admit I was surprised late yesterday to see that he had suddenly found what he carries in his trousers..... but then, having become jaded over the years of observing the DC chess games, I immediately suspected he was just giving public balance to Boehner´s immovable ´´let´s make a deal - I´ll give first!!´´ philosophy.

I don´t know what the answers are - but I´d bet many of us here could sustain a viable ´´Common Sense Party´´ - and do a helluva better job at GOVERNING (as opposed to wheeling and dealing the country away to certain devastation).

Gov. Palin - I too would have your back.

The problem is we don´t have the Senate. Hang in there everyone. And this isn´t a retreat, rather a re-trenching, which is tactical.

Obama is the one disappointed. He wanted a cliff dive and didn´t get it.

As Rush has pointed out numerous times: the problem is always the "other guy," but MY congressperson/senator is just fine!

It´s sort of a Catch-22, we want a representative who will bring home the bacon to me, but not to thee. But with the spending problem we have, eventually the pig will be extinct.

16 and 17 are correct. We have to keep trying. One thing I tried to teach my children was that if you give up you are already defeated.

How stupid is it to abandon whatever troops you still have? We need more people on our side, not fewer, and some of you are playing the Democrats´ game by removing yourselves from the battle.

Boehner will remain Speaker. There is nobody to challenge him. Paul Ryan voted for this legislation and has remained silent on everything since the election loss, so don`t think for one second he would be a Speaker candidate. A new Congress takes effect on Jan. 3rd. Boehner`s first order of business is to take the newbies aside and get them in line with how things work in DC. You want to get ahead do as I say. You stray, there is no GOP money for reelection and no committee assignments. Boehner is tough when it comes to his own troops but cowers when dealing with the dems.

As for the debt ceiling? That too will go right down to the wire and the GOP will cave, raise it and off we go with more debt and more `revenue` demanded by Obama. By 2016 we`ll be lucky to only have 25 trillion in debt.

Our first order of business should be to inform every House Republican who voted to surrender (i.e.: voted for this bloated pork-filled tax hike with only miniscule spending cuts - so they wouldn’t be a scapegoat for going over the fiscal cliff) that they have only 2 choices: either announce that they will not run in 2014 or face a no-holds-barred primary challenge by a dedicated TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party candidate, who will promise to cut spending and will remind voters at every opportunity of your spineless vote on this shameful bill to burden our children with endless debt.

Why do the pubs keep losing to the majik mulatto? Is BO really that much smarter than them? He cheated his whole way through life so there really isn´t any substance, it´s all smoke and mirrors. The pubs are not playing what few cards they have, wisely anyway. Oh we´ll stick with the republican party ok but only if we get all new people. The debt ceiling is not going to go our way either.

The Speaker of the House does not have to be an elected Representative.

I will support a boomlet for Allen West as Speaker. He will NOT be an elected Representative, thus he will not worry about re-election. I presume he will be (or can be) paid for his services as Speaker.
And we can count on him to be...

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

A failure to properly supervise a Department of Veteran’s Affairs employee led him to use VA resources for sexting, misuse official time, and inappropriately spend thousands of dollars in travel funds, according to a recent report. In a redacted report — first highlighted by the Military Times — the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General reveals a plethora of cringe-worthy offenses perpetrated by an unnamed VA employee. Despite the employee’s bad behavior, his supervisors allowed him to continue his unauthorized activities and even promoted him.

At the time of the raid, Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that the feds confiscated tonewood imported from India for the guitar Gibson manufacturers which would result in a cost of $2 to $3 million for his company. At a great expense in legal fees and time, Juszkiewicz fought the federal government tooth and nail.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
