George Will to Tea Party: ´Nancy
Pelosi and Harry Reid Are the Problems´

Heritage, by Amy Payne

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/22/2014 11:12:55 AM

Tea party conservatives need to understand something, says columnist and author George Will: “Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are the problems – it’s not that complicated.” In a sometimes testy primary season, Will disputed that the tea party and a “Republican establishment” needed to be at odds. “The tea party IS the Republican Party today,” he said at The Heritage Foundation Wednesday, adding that “politics is a team sport.” He referred to an old saying – “You can’t split rotten wood” – to convey that robust debate on the right is a sign that people, and ideas, are strong. “Nothing

Yes, George, they are at least one part of the much bigger problem. Other parts exist in the Repub party. Most of the problem is caused by LoFos, leaches, and takers voting for their pork-giver of choice.

Am I the only one who is beginning to resent the name calling by so-called "conservatives" when something is said they don´t agree with. I actually don´t believe most Republicans talk that way or call each other names or insult people who have been Conservatives for years. Who ARE these Lo-fo´s", "takers" and let´s not forget "leeches"?? Personally the only ones who fit that description are democrats. Makes me wonder.....

Of course Reid and Pelosi are the problem but I can´t vote them out of office. All I can do is vote for people who are willing to stand up to them, unlike our current crop of Republican leaders.

Me, too, #2. The level has dropped to a point where anyone who does not fit the purist template can be designated a "taker, a "leach"(sic), or a "lo-fo". Sir, I protest. I am none of those things because I agree with George Will. BTW, Will is none of those things, either.

Read the article. I was siding with Will (and the author). I was talking about Dems. I really don´t think all LoFos, leeches and takers are Dems though.

Does the national Republican Party stand for anything these days? "Immigration Reform" is a good example of the apparent duplicity of the big boys. The IRS scandals offer a chance at real, meaningful tax code simplification and reform. And the silence is deafening. John Boehner can seem to do nothing with his constitutional duty as the holder of the government´s purse strings. The list goes on and on.

George Will has been breathing the rarified air of DC for too long. He is out of touch.
Pelosi and Reid are problems because Republicans ALLOW them to BE trouble. They provide no pushback from the scum, seem to stand for nothing except themselves.

Will is a proud atheist. It is not a stretch to consider him a lo-fo. If we thirst for someone within a nation of Christians to lead by Christian principles, does that make us purists? Name calling goes both ways.

In our personal lives being purists in things that matter most to us is a faithful, even scriptural, duty.

In matters political we must learn to embrace imperfection rather than endure feculence when, because of our pecksniffian disapproval and inaction, some wholly unsuitable character like Obama or Harry Reid ascends the heights and imposes his purulent visions on us. Whether our allies in 90% of what we believe are atheist, gay, or whatever, we need to stand shoulder to shoulder with them when it really matters and forge a winning coalition. Our futures depend on doing what is politically expedient. Our enemies are doing that. And there are more of us than there are of them when everything is spelled out plainly.

I agree with Will.

Republicans--Beltway types and Tea Partiers-- must stop the public circular firing squad. Disagreement is fine; just keep it behind closed doors.

To paraphrase William F. Buckley, vote for the most conservative, viable candidate. Viable.

Even as Iraq is falling to renewed attacks by radical Islamists, pro-Russian forces escalate the killing of Ukrainian soldiers, and as thousands of illegal immigrants are surging across our borders causing misery and a national health crisis, President Obama has decided to take an extended weekend vacation, perhaps to get in a little golf. The president and his family have jetted off to the desert oasis of Rancho Mirage, California, for an extended Father´s Day vacation. As the Los Angeles local CBS affiliate noted, Obama´s staff has helpfully "scoped out some golf courses and gave a list to Obama just

I thought I’d go blind looking for a silver lining this week until by chance I ran into Celinda Faretheewell, chair of the Perpetually Optimistic Society (POS) in a neighborhood coffee shop. “Why so glum?” she asked. “Everything seems to be falling apart,” I replied. “The slaughter in Syria continues with thousands of refugees. In Iraq the ISIS jihadists are marching to Baghdad having taken Mosul and Tikrit. Reports of hundreds of beheaded local officials and Iraqi military lining the roads are awful enough, but now we learn the Iranian Revolutionary Guards might enter the fray. Imagine all the time

WASHINGTON — NO one wrote about blondes like Raymond Chandler. “There is the small cute blonde who cheeps and twitters and the big statuesque blonde who straight-arms you with an ice-blue glare,” he wrote in “The Long Goodbye.” “There is the blonde who gives you the up-from-under look and smells lovely and shimmers and hangs on your arm and is always very, very tired when you take her home.” There’s the pale, anemic, languid blonde with the soft voice. “You can’t lay a finger on her,” Chandler notes, “because in the first place you don’t want to and in the

It took Dave Brat´s shocking victory over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) for Chris Matthews and Chuck Todd to understand that the Tea Party movement is a state of mind and not a fad or a flash-in-the-pan movement. A day after Brat ousted Cantor in a race that blindsided the often conventional and lethargic mainstream media in their backyard (the mainstream press missed the biggest upset of their political lives in a district that was a two-hour drive from them), Matthews declared that the elites in the media had to stop looking down on the Tea Party movement.

The U.S. Army has appointed a two-star general to investigate how and why Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl left his base in Afghanistan, resulting in his capture, a senior defense official said Saturday. Bergdahl spent five years in captivity until his release May 31, in exchange for five Taliban figures being held at a U.S. military detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Bergdahl returned to the United States -- specifically to an Army medical facility in San Antonio, Texas -- early Friday. The investigating officer looking into the circumstances surrounding how Bergdahl went missing is expected to begin working on the

Hillary Clinton’s hardest words:

Hillary Clinton’s out-of-the-gate stumbles in interviews this week reflect an issue she’s faced repeatedly during her political career – defensiveness with the media, and difficulty acknowledging a mistake. By most measures, Clinton handled her hour-long interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer well – she was tonally on-point about Monica Lewinsky and effectively handled a question about her age. She gently mocked Karl Rove for insinuations about her health. But in the current media environment, it’s the gaffes that stand out. And her clunky response on why she and her husband have made exorbitant amounts in speaking fees – and her tense

Barack and Michelle Obama´s weekend visit to Palm Springs, California, started out with a wardrobe malfunction for the first lady - but luckily the president was there to save the day. The first couple were stepping off Air Force One at the Palm Springs International Airport on a balmy Friday evening when a gust of wind nearly blew up the voluminous skirt of Mrs Obama´s green-and-black summer frock. The 50-year-old first lady was photographed struggling to tame the billowing fabric, with a relaxed Mr Obama walking alongside her with a rueful smile on his wife.Eventually, the commander-in-chief came to his

President Barack Obama called on Americans coming of age to demand that politicians respond more aggressively to climate change, comparing those skeptical about man-caused alterations to the environment to a belief that the moon is “made of cheese.” In a commencement address today to graduates of the University of California at Irvine, Obama delivered one of his feistiest critiques of lawmakers who object to environmental regulations he’s pushing that are aimed at reducing carbon emissions. Obama, in his prepared remarks, said rising temperatures and sea levels and intensifying storm patterns define “one of the most significant long-term challenges that our

U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel ordered the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush to the Persian Gulf on Saturday to “protect” American lives and interests during terror flare-ups in several Iraqi towns, the Pentagon said in a statement Saturday. The order gives President Barack Obama “additional flexibility” in case military measures are required to safeguard Americans in Iraq, said Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby. Sunni insurgents have taken over several Iraqi towns and are threatening to move south to the capital of Baghdad, causing more than half a million residents to flee. On Friday, Obama said the

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO. Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president. Kamyl Bazbaz, a spokesperson for the 34-year-old Clinton, referred POLITICO to NBC News, which declined to discuss Clinton’s contract. “We don’t comment
