Mark Levin: ´Entrenched´ Republican
´losers´ may cost GOP the House in 2014

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 8/14/2013 8:18:27 AM

Conservative talker Mark Levin blasted Republican House leaders on his Tuesday radio show, warning that by attacking more conservative members of the GOP, Speaker John Boehner and prominent Reps. Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor are throwing away the 2014 midterm elections. Levin, author of “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” said the GOP establishment’s disparagement of conservative colleagues, could be a disaster in a midterm “turn out the base” election. “This is my great fear,” Levin said. “My great fear is that guys like Boehner, and quite frankly Paul Ryan, and Eric Cantor

Comments:
It´s a circular firing squad out there, to which we´ll hear "conservatives are too conservative" and "wrecking the party" for the next two years if the GOP loses the House of Representatives.

Mark Levin is always "blasting" someone, usually our own. Maybe he´s got a point from time to time, but it´s hard to locate it under the decibel level.

Mark Levin is the voice crying in the wilderness.

The entrenched GOP has become irrelevant. The dustbin of history comes to mind.

Boehner, Ryan, and Cantor all need a SWIFT KICK to their collective backsides! We need TRUE Conservatives leading the charge into the 2014 midterms...NOT "rat-lites." Don´t even get me started on the waste of breath and space in the Senate...Mitch, I hope you read this....

Establishment leadership want to keep their perks. They could care less about having to govern, lead or be the majority. Actually, it´s easier being in the minority, then no one expects anything from them.

Mark Levin is reflecting the attitude of the Base. We´re scared. We don´t want to see this great nation go down the drain.

The republicans are parasites, feeding on the perks of the House and Senate. They haven´t the talent to govern.

Remember that dufus from Mississippi---what was his name? Oh! Lott . . . Trent Lott, who became the majority leader of the senate, then promptly shared his power with the democrats because he, nor any of the republican senators, had the talent to lead on their own (at least they now have Cruz who has the talent to lead, should they stumble into ownership of the senate in 2014).

But that won´t happen for the republicans in 2014. A Third Party, which Levin will be involved in, will have taken roots by then: is my belief.

You know, I hadn´t thought about it, but Levin could be right. I, for one, am DONE voting for the lesser of two evils. I am going to vote my conscience, PERIOD. If it costs the GOP majority, so be it. And to those naysayers who say oh no that would be horrible, I say - how much worse could it be? They already act like Democrats. It´s time for some real statesmen to step up and be counted.

I´ve always like Boehner but he should resign and let the young conservative Turks take over. Change the face of the House Republicans....fast. A handsome young conservative would put the sad other side off balance.
In soccer, we used to call this "changing the field". There´s nothing but trouble on this side of the field, so turn the ball and kick it down the other side as far as you can. Good things invariably happened.

Those he ´blasts´ #1 usually deserve it. McCain and the others truly don´t care if they lose the House or even more seats in the Senate.

They have positioned themselves as moderate buddies with democrats and their egos won´t permit conservatives to rock that boat. To do so would mean that they would have to start doing their job. They have it real good right now, paycheck and perks for doing absolutely nothing that their voters want them to do.

My county was re-districted in 2012, and my congressman is one of the old guard. He is being primaried by a young Tea Party activist. The young dude will have my vote and support.

This "house" must be torn down and rebuilt. With Boehner, Cantor, and company finding excuses to cave to the Dems, they serve no useful purpose. The Dems are already doing whatever they want - with only minor delays as the RINOs do their Kabuki dance.

Enough. With all the grumbles about throwing all of them out, it´s time to actually do it.

Recall when it was revealed the Amnesty bill allowed each illegal alien to print up or issue 2 forged passports?

I sent Cantor ~ not my Congresscritter ~ and Jim Moran ~ unfortunately the Congresscritter for this district ~ (this is the wifebeating childmolesting drunk, etc) ~
a letter requesting that they make sure that American citizens get a higher limit on printing up forged passports than illegal aliens.

Believe it or not shortly after getting my Bed Bug Letter #7 from Moran I also got a well thought out polite letter going directly to the point ~ that allowing anybody to forge passports was NUTS!

I still haven´t got even a courtesy response from Cantor.

Guess he doesn´t care!

Michelle Bachman and Marsha Blackburn reneged on their vote against Boehner for Speaker this last go around. The votes to upset were there until they changed to vote for Boehner again.

Cantor was under suspicion from day 5. Since then he has never been considered one of the good guy conservatives. Just a hanger-on coat tails. No spine and out there blowing in the wind.

Paul Ryan, the running mate of the last loser the pubbies put forth, had built up our hope to some degree. A lite dem, perhaps. A solid conservative, no? After his recent foray into the pot with amnesty, he is now known as a lite as well. He should have stayed in his cubicle with his pencil and numbers game.

Johnny the crier. A nice guy. A nice guy, but nice guys don´t get the job done (apparently) He is another who has no spine, only tissues which are then crumpled and thrown aside. John is such a poor choice for House Speaker. He is much more suited to be the rest room attendant.

That true Conservatives have jumped ship and will fail to vote only proves that we have given up on the motley crew we find in the halls of state. If we must vote for imposters; if we vow to never cast another vote for the kommie klowns; then what alternative remains. No matter how awful, inept the rats might find their candidates to be, the fact is unless we turn out to vote for the elephants on the ballot, they will never stand a chance. Thus they lose. Of course we lose as well, but we´ve become accustomed to that scenario.

#10 ~ remember that big record setting turnout of Democrats for Obama? He got 69 million votes. Next election up was 2010 and only 39 million Democrats voted.

The earlier record was the Republican fall off of 17 million between 2004s "W" victory, and 2006 Democrat blowout.

BTW, we had a 15 million Republican voter fall off in 2010 ~

If we drop only as many voters as we did in 2006, and the Democrats do as well as they did in 2010, WE WIN and THEY LOSE

Actually, I expect the Democrats to show up in record low numbers in 2014 while Republicans show up in record high numbers.

I think that timid leaders such as Boehner and others who will not lead or allow others to lead if they cannot be effectively replaced in a primary should be eliminated by the base turning out to vote for their Rat opponents. This would send a message to others to lead or get out of the way. The damage these place holders are doing is immense and demands strong measures.

In an interview posted on the YouTube page owned by the filmmakers of last September’s documentary “The Muslims Are Coming” on Monday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow targeted conservative Ann Coulter and radio host and so-called evangelist Bryan Fischer. Maddow was critical of Fischer and likened him to Coulter, author of "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican," who Maddow insisted wasn’t to be taken seriously as a political player or a pundit, but instead just a comedian. “[A]nn Coulter was revealed not as a political player or even as a pundit, but essentially as a comedian,” Maddow explained.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
