GOP chief plans major
overhaul to party

CNN, by Mark Preston

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/24/2013 10:26:23 AM

Washington- The chair, perhaps the most famous chair in political history, stands in the office of a large, nondescript cement building just a stone´s throw away from the U.S. Capitol. That´s right, the chair Clint Eastwood used as a prop in his rambling and at times incoherent critique of President Barack Obama at the Republican National Convention is now one of the many pieces of political memorabilia in Reince Priebus´ spacious office on First Street in Washington. The chairman of the Republican National Committee gets the joke; the chair is the first thing he points out to a reporter

Get Reince Priebus OUT of there !
He lied to Mark Levin on National Radio about giving RNC funding help to Michele Bachmann. He is no friend of the TEA party.
His resume should list losing the election for Romney.

The Republicans are totally ineffectual on the economy, and if they fold on guns, they´re done. Kaput.

Overhaul? Is the GOP for real? Who are they trying to convince? The GOP acronym now stands for: GUTLESS OLD PARTY. Never again will I contribute in any way shape or form to any GOP congressional candidate.They all now appear to come out of a moth-ball closet. Unless a new National Party surfaces to take on the Democrats I will restrain for spending my time working for any party.

You don´t think they´re losertarians, #8? Yeah, a 3rd party. That´ll do the trick. That´ll stop the Dems from taking back the house.

Face it--it isn´t a conservative country, despite what people say to pollsters. Seniors want their welfare (SS and medicare)--and don´t pretend they "paid into" those; farmers want their subsidies; business wants their cheap labor from Mexico; students don´t want to pay for their own education; everyone wants freebies.

Hey Mark, just because you didn´t understand what Eastwood was saying doesn´t mean he was incoherent.

I´m very unhappy with the GOP, so unless they plan to embrace free-market capitalism (for real this time), then I doubt they´ll do anything that will help anyone going forward.

I´ll bet #10 enjoys the low food prices. Don´t think they are? Check food in Europe.
About twice as high. That is why the US subsidizes farmers so they can keep farming and sell for less and still keep on farming. Margins are close. Just think of the gasoline it takes to run those tractors back and forth across the fields!

It may be too late to do this nicely.

I fear that harsher measures may have to be taken.

The Progs do not fight fair but they are also a bunch of panzies who count on their opponents being good sports and gentlemen.

While a full blown civil war may not be required to correct this situation.....something ´out of the ordinary´
surely will.

Someone crazier than this grumpy old Texan may be working on it right now.

I´m only speculating... but seriously.....

how long can this uncontested march towards tyranny go on before there is opposition from
those who value their liberty above all ??

How difficult can it be to find a coalition of people who love the Constitution, their country and fiscal sanity? I say dump the GOP and it´s associated label Republican - both are deader than the dodo.
People respond to humor - [democrats/pros/commies are singularly humorless.] We are an increasingly visual society - so let´s make some cracking good movies -[no Hollyweirds please], cartoons and billboards -anything that gets good public exposure and makes a point.

So, #10, SS & Medicare are welfare! And all this time I thought that SS was an annuity, and Medicare was an insurance plan!

No one forces farmers to collect subsidies, hire cheap (illegal) labor, or take out student loans.

Last time I checked, if one worked in the private sector, or some areas of government, they had NO CHOICE but to "contribute to SS & Medicare!

Let´s see. The Lame Stream loved McCain until he was nominated. Then, in ´12 they promoted a series of debates the purpose of which was to convince the GOP that another moderate was really a conservative and would be best for the party.

Last, the Obamanation didn´t show for the first debate because he new the fix was already in motion. "Ground Game" - my Royal Irish Posterior - won it for the RATs.

Chicago has been printing dead votes faster than the Fed can print Monopoly money since before JFK. How difficult is it to spread the system to other RAT controlled cities?

BRISTOL, Conn.— Even gun makers want to be liked.

To the employees of The Washington Post: You’ll have heard the news, and many of you will greet it with a degree of apprehension. When a single family owns a company for many decades, and when that family acts for all those decades in good faith, in a principled manner, in good times and in rough times, as stewards of important values – when that family has done such a good job – it is only natural to worry about change. So, let me start with something critical. The values of The Post do not need changing.

By traditional standards, the 2012 presidential election should have hinged on who offered the best ideas for dealing with the nation´s high unemployment and tepid economic growth – with most of the attention on the incumbent´s fiscal stewardship. It didn´t work out that way. Instead, President Obama and his team ran a relentlessly negative campaign, with the news media, to paraphrase Bob Dylan, going along for the ride. When Democrats did deign to discuss the economy, they essentially claimed Paul Ryan would roll your grandmother off a cliff in her wheelchair –

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language.

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not?

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.

An odd dark vertical line that was observed in the sky over Florida earlier this week has left meteorologists puzzled. The shadowy apparition was spotted and photographed by Mike Weight at Honeymoon Island State Park near Dunedin, Florida, Wednesday. Weight was walking on the beach at around 12.30pm. The day was bright and sunny, but there were thunderheads forming to the east. ‘I was looking North when I observed what looked like a ray of dark light coming down from a small cloud to the surface of the Gulf about a half-mile away,’ the 73-year-old man wrote in an email
