McConnell: ´Remember me? I am
the guy that gets us out of shutdowns´

CNN, by Dana Bash

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 8/28/2014 4:16:55 AM

In his strongest words to date, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, tried to quash talk that he would allow another government shutdown if he becomes Senate majority leader next year. "Of course not. Remember me? I am the guy that gets us out of shutdowns," McConnell told CNN in an exclusive interview Wednesday. "It´s a failed policy," he said of shutdowns. Earlier this month, Politico reported that, if selected majority leader, McConnell plans to tell the president to accept bills reining in the administration´s policies or veto them and risk a government shutdown. Last year´s government shutdown was hardly a

McConnell is an imbecile. There was no government shutdown, unless he foolishly thinks 17% of the government is equal to the entire government. And Senator Cruz did not shut down 17% of the government, Harry Reid and his democraps did by not even voting on a House bill that would have kept 100% of the government open.

#5 if it shut down for a week each month, we could save 25% of all bureaucratic salaries. That is a SUBSTANTIAL part of our federal government´s budget.

What courage,what wisdom, what a statesman. enjoy the suck that is Mitch. The political class, those who know nothing other than navigating government, raising money and the people involved in that industry, they think government as an end, and not a means to something more. The idea of cutting the size of government is a concept they do not understand. A system in which corporate interests hire your token wife lobbyist to gain your support is only viewed as functional by those on K street and those on wallstreet, and those poor hacks whose existence relies on maintaining that dynamic. Wise indeed.
Shutdowns, both in 94 and the most recent one, were successful to the extent that the public examines the horrors of Hillarycare, or finally realizes that Obamacare deserves to be dismantled. Or spending needs to be restrained. Or that the mentality that defends big government explains much of failure and unpopularity of republicans like Mitch who talk conservative but hate conservatives.
We remember you. and we remember Mississippi.

#8, Senator Cruz´s effort was far from futile. He exposed the ignorance and the incompetence of our US Senate´s democrats and RINOs, with his 21 hour filibuster. Without his Senate interruption, the fools we have in our Senate would have kissed Harry Reid´s rear and continued with "business as usual", and our media buffoons could have reported another "win" for Harry and and his ship of democrats.

Senator Cruz achieved his goals, raising his own profile and raising lots of cash. But, for everyone else, it was a waste of time, a distraction and handed ammo to the media and the Dems about "shutdowns". It is not blasphemous to offer a criticism of the senator, although some seem to feel so.

Funny how populist conservatives are always motivated in your world by the desire to raise money and visibility. Liberal big government republicans whose existence relies on the public sector, who have no marketable private sector skills or background cannot conceive of a world where power is not an end, or advancing an argument on principle is a tactic. And you are mystified why others don´t understand your brilliance.

No doubt the loyal republicans of Mississippi took comfort in similar assurances that their wishes at the ballot box would be respected.

This chinless, feckless tough guy who shares Obama´s ( and yours) visceral disdain for the traditional small government principles of Palin and Cruz and Ryan is hardly one upon whom you should pin your hopes.

What Sen. Cruz accomplished was showing how the public has been lied to for years by those in power. He opened the eyes of many when he exposed the game of those who were supposed to be Serving the U.S. Citizen. Try as some might on this board to belittle him, his actions meet approval by many more.

Why does the truth of what is happening in DC bother some......hard to fathom.

Why have so many people here refused to accept the fact that any sort of government "shutdown" is political poison for those perceived to be responsible for it - and that it is the MSM that shapes perceptions? McConnell is right about that much.

Twice burned, shame on me, right?

Do some of you really think that staying home or voting for the Dem to prove a point - thereby allowing Dingy Harry to continue to control the Senate - is going to somehow further your goals?

Do some of you actually believe that Cruz´s futile antics on the Senate floor shocked a whole [bleep]load of lo-fo voters out of their lethargy, and that they are now chomping at the bit to go out and vote for conservatives?

Sheesh! The other side is so much better at the political game than we.

Four of the five inmates who escaped from a California county jail have been recaptured, authorities said. Madera County sheriff´s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said late Saturday that the escapees had been recaptured, but did not immediately provide further details of their arrests. Stuart identified 29-year-old Roel Soliz of Chowchilla, Calif. as the inmate still at large. The other four inmates were identified at the time of the escape as Juan Lopez, 33; Abel Ramos, 25; Ricardo Cendejas, 19; and Jorge Lopez-Diaz, 26.

Senate Republicans are planning aggressive action to intensify oversight of the Obama administration and move conservative legislation long stymied by the Democrats if they win control of the upper chamber in the midterm elections. Republican leaders are promising a complete makeover of the chamber that goes beyond changes in legislative priorities, according to knowledgeable GOP sources. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, expected to become the next majority leader as long as he wins re-election on Nov. 4, plans to return power to the committees and promote a freewheeling debate process that allows members to shape legislation through a vigorous

Last week, a mass email went out at Yale University (my alma mater) protesting an upcoming visit from Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a political activist and staunch critic of Islam. The subject line reads, “Dear Friends: More Speech, Not Hate Speech.” The email reveals that by “hate speech,” the writers mean what the Left usually means when they use that term: “opinions we don’t agree with.” Thirty-two student organizations signed the email under the leadership of Yale’s Muslim Student Association (MSA). That’s a revised number after the MSA was forced to reveal that its original list of 36 organizations was falsified. So,

EDINBURGH, Scotland - Scottish voters have resoundingly rejected independence, deciding to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core. The decision prevented the rupture of a 307-year union with England, bringing a huge sigh of relief to Britain´s political establishment, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who faced calls for his resignation if Scotland had broken away. The vote on Thursday - 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favor - saw an unprecedented turnout of just under 85 percent.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”
