The current state of the GOP brings to mind the surviving Marines in Aliens, with no shortage of demoralized hacks lamenting their inability to resist by channeling Private Hudson: “Maybe you haven´t been keeping up on current events but we just got our a**** kicked, pal!” (Snip) The only thing that is good for this country right now is defeating Obama’s leftist agenda, fully, completely and in detail. You can’t work with him, you can’t compromise with him, you can’t convince him. He’s a progressive Terminator and the Constitution is Sarah Connor. You have to beat him, and that means
Comments: Wow. After reading this, I sure feel a lot better. Can I nominate this guy for Coach/Cheerleader of Conservatives?
The hardest part of any kind of GOP comeback is the media being fully in the tank for Obama,no mater how far he steps over the line.
The current crop of people he´s lining up for cabinet posts are a disgrace but the media will usher them through by attacking GOP senators who oppose them.
The government needs to borrow money to spend but according to the idiot at CNN the debt ceiling has nothing to do with spending.That´s an example of how twisted these people are in order to support Obama´s destruction of this country.
Obama supporters have been brainwashed into thinking that whatever damage Obama does,it´ll magically exclude them.The only reason Obama didn´t raise taxes on the middle class is because it would smack union workers who are loathe to pay for their own excess. Obama´s Robin Hood meme will never work because most of the wealth in this country is held by his supporters.
Obama has borrowed every dime of wealth redistribution,racking up $6 trillion more in new debt at the blink of an eye.
Obama slandered his own country on foreign soil when he said he wished he didn´t have to go through congress.
Obama wants to save one child´s life by sweeping gun laws while the government has paid out over $500 million to planned parenthood to murder close to a million babies the last 3 years.How is a 5 year old child any different than one in the womb,just at at different part of their growth cycle.
The GOP has fight in them--that´s not the problem. The problem is they consider we the people to be the enemy. The GOP likes big government and are fine with Obama. The biggest reason they like Obama is they can use him to silence us. The GOP went straight to the NY Times after Obama was re-elected and portrayed the House as completely defeated and somber, accepting that Obama won and now we must do what he wants, must have no more disagreements, it´s all over now. The GOP is already on the road to take over our primaries, making sure we don´t get more people like Ted Cruz (whose opponent they supported). Then we have the Main St. Partnership, a GOP funded group to seek out and fund both Repubs. and Democrats. They´re looking for Repubs. who believe in compromise.
Boehner should not have been reelected speaker. The GOP needs to come up with a "Newt Gingrich" type, who could tie Obama up in knots and break it off in his wazoo. Playing nice with these Democrat fanatics is long past over. The Americans whose votes really count will back the GOP all the way if they would just show some backbone and resist the tyranny and bullying of King George Obama.
The GOP will never win over new voters by governing as if playing a game. If the other side is acting that way, then the GOP needs to act like the adult in the room. Adults look for "win-win" opportunities. Adults describe the problem and then set out to fix it.
For example, instead of whining forth a budget, offer up a budget. Say, "If you think it can be better, add in your ideas or offer an alternative, but this is a requirement of government and we are doing our jobs." Offer legislation...not the in-your-face type that is there just to wag a finger at the other side, but sensible stuff that can be a negotiated settlement. Show that the Republicans can take action instead of just whining.
Troll #9, do some research and let us know how many budgets the pubbies in the house sent over to the senate last year - that reid sat on Hint: it was greater than 0 and less than 100. We´ll be waiting (not).
#9, a prime example of a low-information and willfully misinformed ´person´. This is the same huffpo refugee that comes to spew the LPs gun confiscation talking points to see if anything will stick among the uninformed
Cory Booker must have been unavailable. Josh Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said in a tweet on Friday that he saved four people after a car accident and included a photo of himself standing next to what appeared to be an overturned vehicle inside a house. "Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.", the tweet read. Romney, who lives in Utah, told NBC News he was driving his family home from Thanksgiving dinner when the car sped by, went
We have a deal. After years of false starts, mutual recriminations and steadily escalating pressure, Iran has finally agreed to accept real limits on its nuclear program. In his statement Saturday night announcing the agreement, U.S. President Barack Obama called it an "important first step" and declared that diplomacy had "opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure." (snip) But we’re still a very long way from Tipperary on this one. And we should be careful about putting on the party hats and breaking out the champagne—at least for now, anyway. And here are five reasons why.
Nov. 22 falls on the Friday before Thanksgiving this year, just as it did 50 years ago. And that extraordinary day in 1963 began on the Hill in ways that would seem familiar to the congressional denizens of today. (Snip) As was the custom, then as now, the chore of acting as presiding officer had been parceled out to several of the freshmen with the lunchtime slot assigned to the youngest in the class, 31-year-old Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. He was in the chair when his brother was killed. And from that instant, the scene at the Capitol unfolded
Before President Obama was elected, the United States was known as one nation under God — but the Obama Administration seems to think otherwise. Organizing For America published an email Sunday suggesting the greatest nation on the face of the Earth owes its allegiance to another deity. David Axelrod write that “we’ve made serious progress as a nation under President Obama.” You can read his edict in its entirety below. No wonder the Democratic National Committee voted to remove the Almighty from their party in 2012. They only have room for one God.
Second-term presidents in the past 30 years have had some pretty embarrassing news conferences, full of frank admissions of failure, submissive spasms of shame and groveling, grieving apologies. Bill Clinton had to admit that he actually did have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky; George W. Bush finally thought of something he might have done wrong; his dad had to explain all those new taxes after his unequivocal pledge; and even Ronald Reagan ate crow over the Iran-Contra affair. But there has never, ever, been a more pitiful presser than the one conducted last week by President Obama.
The continuing attention devoted to the blunders, incompetence, and lies surrounding the Obamacare rollout is much deserved. But we shouldn’t forget that the President’s health-care monstrosity is merely the latest and biggest of scores of government entitlement programs suffering from the same flawed progressive assumption––that government “experts” armed with coercive power alone can solve problems better left to the states, civil society, and the free market. In reality, such programs relentlessly metastasize, increasing as well fraud, waste, abuse, and costs. One such program is SNAP, the kinder and gentler name for what we used to call food stamps. Apparently the
While Barack Obama’s grotesque lie, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it!” haunts millions of Americans who are learning first-hand that the exact opposite is true, The One, in concert with corrupt RINOS and Democrats (whom are automatically understood to be universally corrupt), is counting on another WHOPPER to codify his amnesty nightmare into federal law. With respect to amnesty, the equivalent Obama lie is, “Once we pass reform (AKA, Amnesty), we will secure the borders!) Translated: If you like American sovereignty, language, and culture you CAN KEEP IT——if you pass amnesty!
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
