The Bridge on the River Potomac?
Daily Inter Lake [Kalispell MT], by Frank Miele

Original Article

Posted By:davesenior, 11/10/2012 9:42:20 PM

In the wake of Tuesday’s election, we are hearing lots of talk about bipartisanship and statesmanship, with the unstated premise that statesmanship and bipartisanship are automatically the same thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. (Snip) If the election battle was indeed a war of ideas, and the president’s ideas prevailed, where does that leave the losing party?Let’s be brutally frank. In essence, Republicans are now prisoners of war who have a hard decision to make:Should they collaborate with their captors in order to try to obtain better treatment for themselves and their constituents?

An analysis of why the GOP should not "collaborate" with the enemy, using the metaphor of "Bridge on the River Kwai" to say the GOP should "blow up the bridge" of bipartisanship rather than be co-opted for a socialist agenda.

I´ve forwarded this to John Boehner... Since I live in his district, maybe someone in his office will read it.

Yes, a must read.

I´ll tell you what ...

... I´d rather endure decades of anarchy than live in tyranny.

Blow it up ...

... before letting it go to ruin.

They won´t be treated as well as POWs. At least as well as POWs are supposed to be treated under the conventions.

Most of the GOP establishment seems under the illusion that this was just another defeat and in 2014 or 2016 or eventually they will take power again. Meanwhile matters won´t get too nasty, la, la, la.

Not so.

I have sympathy for their plight and there is no hope except in resisting. In honesty I don´t see how they will be effective.

The brutal joke about thermodynamics comes to mind. "You can´t win, you can´t break even, and you can´t quit the game."

I´m sorry, but I cannot read it. The analogy may have been fitting for 2008, when Obama was elected president and the democrats captured the House and a filibuster-proof Senate. It most certainly does NOT apply in 2012. The Republicans still control the House despite gerrymandered districts designed to turn it Democrat again. Republicans have NOT been taken prisoner. The American people may have given the first black president another chance, but the only message he can take away from it is that he must moderate and work with Republicans if he wants anything other than four years of gridlock. We didn´t want Obamacare, and we sent a Republican House to Washington to be sure there will bo no more of that nonsense.

Oh, and let´s get this clear right up front. We did NOT return a Republican majority to the House with instuctions to play dead on everything. We would have voted Democrats in again if that was what we wanted. The Republican House is there to block Obama´s radicalism.

John Boehner is no William Holden. We have a permanent political class running Washington. Eventually crazy Joe Biden, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid will negotiate our lives away. Republicans won´t stand up and shut the government down.

As I reflect on this election, it occurs to me that the campaign was more a campaign of hate against a culture--a race, if you will--than against a candidate. It wouldn´t have mattered who had run, the focus would have been the same. We´ll never be able to come back as long as they have control of the media.

Revenge has been exacted on the slaveholders of old. Compromise would equal appeasement and should not be done.

FTA: ´´Do not imagine that building a bridge between Republicans and Democrats in these perilous times is good for the country.´´

There are those who are weak when we blow the ´´bridge´´ who will say, ´´Madness,´´ but they should just take their stuff and move to some tropical socialist paradise & leave the rest of US alone. Capitalist are innovators & creators, with a vision of the greatness that can be, not myopic losers that want to punish themselves and others for their lack of ambition and vision.

They blame the rich who created wealth and gave them jobs to feed their families, only to desire the material things of life instead of the spiritual that will fill their soul and heart. Sadly, we made a machine that is going to eat its creator to fuel its needs. Only problem is, when the fuel runs out, anarchy will ensue. History will be repeated and man will once again cry out to God for guidance and mercy.

BTW, I completely forgot about the two or three more justices that 0bama may now appoint to the Supreme Court. Romney and his team failed US in bringing out this important fact during the election. Frank Miele has written a chilling, but well thought out summation of the next four years. If we don´t try to obstruct 0bama & the dRATS at every stage of his bridge to nowhere, we will all find ourselves getting there sooner than we expected. Was this what we baby boomers expected in retirement? This is truly a ''Must Read'' and words to ponder.

William Holden was only an actor. We need fewer actors and more non-actors in Washington. We need people who are real and who have principles and who are persuasive. The persuasive part of the equation must not be forgotten. It is crucial to getting John Smith to push the button in your favor. You have to persuade and not just describe.

Persuasion is a bit of an art form. Yet, some were naturals at it. Ronald Reagan - ironically an actor - was one of the most principled and persuasive people around. In essence, we need something that is lost in the maelstrom of management consultants and advisors that has swamped the political world in recent years: plain-speaking leaders with principles who will persuade.

Reply to No. 13: Realistically the Supreme Court does decide constitutionality. Otherwise Obamacare would only be valid in 24 states (or less) since 26 of them sued to stop it. Your solution would seem to be mainly a path to breaking up the nation into a confederation. We can certainly consider that, but it would no longer be the United States of America.

We are now dealing with a "lame duck" president. Our side has nothing to lose in defying 0bama at every turn. Just say "no", it´s as simple as that.
Just be very happy that we still prevail in the house. All our beloved president can do is call us a do nothing congress.
That´s good enough for me.

Whenever I think of Statesmen, I think of John C. Calhoun... or Robert E. Lee...

Unless Miele and Boehner trade places... we are doomed... almost...

Because there is always hope as Pastor preached on the persuasive, passionate, persevering and persistent widow from Luke 18:1-8... She had no standing as a woman in Jewish culture and there was no male to petition on her behalf... but even the unrighteousness judge honored her request for justice because of her perseverance ...

Stand strong, GOP! Do Not compromise!

No reaching anywhere...

Chalk one up for the good guys — well, sort of. After a week of mockery, derision, and disdain, the Federal Communications Commission has announced that it won’t put observers in newsrooms after all. FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai’s op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Feb. 10 had alerted the public to the dangers of having government representatives querying news bosses about how they decide what stories to cover — and which ones not to cover. The implicit threat of such heavy-handed research is that the government could be on the verge of announcing that IT will decide what stories are important to

Just what we needed — another item to add to the ever burgeoning file labeled “Things that can’t possibly be true in America, but are anyway.” Consider this monstrosity: Our formerly constitutional government, in the form of the Federal Communications Commission, has developed a plan to put observers in the nation’s newsrooms in order to better understand “the process by which stories are selected.” Of course, they won’t just “understand” the process; they will most assuredly and dangerously alter it, merely by the implied threat of their presence in the formerly sacrosanct newsroom.

Just as we are constantly being told to yearn for an era of post-partisan compromise in D.C., our football pundits would be talking about the need for ending the heated rivalries and bringing about an era of cooperation on the field of play!

There are some things about which I can take pleasure in saying, “I told you so,” but a nuclear Iran is not one of them. I first wrote about the slow but steady progress of Iran toward becoming a nuclear power in December 2007, and then followed up in 2010. The theme of both columns was the incredible naivete of the United States in accepting the reassuring words coming from Tehran about the Islamic republic’s nuclear intentions.In 2007, I disdainfully concluded, “if global geopolitics were a television sitcom, then the government of the United States would be Boss Hogg, and

One of the most heart-breaking medical tragedies of recent years occurred earlier this month when a 13-year-old girl woke up from surgery for a tonsillectomy,asked for a popsicle,and then started bleeding profusely from her mouth and nose, leading to a heart attack as a result of loss of blood[SNIP] When we see trained medical professionals reacting so coldly to the pleas and needs of a family in a medical crisis,it can only remind me of the warning of Sarah Palin and others of the danger of turning our most personal life-and-death decisions over to bureaucrats and functionaries.

Obamacare didn’t happen overnight. For the last 75 years, progressives have trotted out the idea of compulsory health care or subsidized national health insurance every decade or so, been defeated, and then gone back to the drawing board.Their tenaciousness finally paid off in 2010 when Congress by the narrowest of margins passed a bill with no Republican votes, and President Obama signed into law his “signature” achievement. No wonder Vice President Biden took the opportunity on that occasion to tell the president that passing health-care reform was a “big f---ing deal.”But now that the fruits of national health insurance are

Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.
