Don’t Blame Boehner
National Review Online, by Larry Kudlow

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/22/2012 5:16:42 AM

When you lose an election you get frustrated. When you’re sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you’re staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next ten years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher. These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner’s so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night’s vote fell through.

Nobody looked good, Larry? Is that what this is about now? I´m glad some Pubbies stood their ground. Boehner´s sell-by date has passed, even if he is a good man. Problem is they will replace him with his clone instead of someone who can lead the party out of this mess.

All the Pubbies, House and Senate, need to be locked in a room and forced to listen to Ronald Regan speeches for about 3 months. Maybe it would sink in.

Compromise! Compromise! That´s like drinking only one glass of poison rather than two.
Democrats never compromise. It´s their way period.

We are in debt beyond imagination. It´s time to stop spending money we do not have. It´s time to stand on what is right or back off and let the dems have the entire ball and see what they do with it. The blame will then be all theirs.

Who controls the Nation´s "purse strings?" The House Republicans! They have not defunded any program or agency since they took over in 2010. I grow tired of screaming at my TV every time I see Mr. Speaker complaining about how the pResident won´t work with him. Cut the funding for the EPA and Education. Defund EVERYTHING that has "Corps" in it´s name but doesn´t begin with United States Marines do not fund Obamacare. There, that´s a start...

Speaker Boehner has made his own frustration by caving every chance he gets. He needs to go. We need somebody with guts to stand up to the dems.

Talking with Obama about something economically sensible is like debating the Devil about schoolgirl skirt lengths. Obama was never intelligent or serious enough to do anything. I think he´s idiot enough to think that the tax rates don´t matter to the economy (and will get his comeuppance when the economy tanks), he´s lazy enough not to make his party agree to anything and so ill-prepared for his position that he couldn´t negotiate getting an apple out of a wet paper bag. Boehner should have been THAT pessimistic when the whole thing started, used HIS position to pass a serious budget and tax rate proposals and sent them to the Senate to die...

...on Harry Reid´s account.

Larry makes Boehner´s work sound good... and it probably is. It was just never realistic.

The thesis in the article is - we understand your frustration but just one last strategic retreat then we will start winning... It all reminds me of another perpetual issue that goes back to the time of Reagan. Reagan accepted amnesty on the border in return for border security. This has been repeated multiple times and now people are saying enough, first we have border security and then one last amnesty. They are all called extremist, inflexible, etc. etc... The same with spending and taxes. Spending is the problem and Obama gets the republicans to talk about taxes. Enough already! Get serious! Obama must be forced to make real concessions on spending cuts for right away NOW before any discussion of tax increases. Without that you may as well wipe out all taxes because the printing of money is a perfectly fair tax on all wealth and income because it will destroy the currency making it worthless!!

You don´t get you best deal standing around loooking for it. John Boehner should take a cue from the Chief Executive of the United States...walk away. If you truly believe you´ve done your part, John, then you have no reason to stick around. Let ol´ Harry Reid start doing some heavy lifting, starting with the "DOA" bi-partisan budget you put in his in-basket months ago.

Have you seen the President´s poll numbers? Something like 54% approval. The Republican House of Representatives has no backing in the country. The President knows he has a chance to make the Republicans so unpopular that they will lose the House in the next election. If you were Boehner, would you try to side step his trap or step into it? Boehner is twisting and turning every way he can think of to salvage what he can. Larry Kudlow is a strong conservative and a very smart man.

Listening to Larry now, I think he may be back on the bottle.
His defense of Boehner is pathetic. John Kyl says he is annoyed with both republicans and democrats that won´t go along with Plan B. We need a NEW SPEAKER.....He needs to be using the Speakers´ bully pulpit of HIS/HER office like that louse Nancy Pelosi always did. Can´t stand any of these jerks.

shaddup Larry. The Republicans are in the toilet because they keep compromising with the progressives. The old saw, "you´ve got to stand for something ..." actually means something to us out here in the real world. If you want to make a real discovery, get the "blank" out of the north-east pest-hole corridor for a few days and talk to someone with a real life.

#7 said it well. The threats and empty promises from the GOP are no longer going to motivate millions of conservatives. We are constantly told to "wait" and when we do? We are told to "take what we can get." Pelosi is what she is but when she had the Speaker´s gavel, she knew how to use it. Dems have no problem when they are in the minority - they fight like a banshee every day to move THEIR agenda. Now, right on time, the DC GOP consultant class out there trying to put a smiley face on this disaster of a Speaker. Truth matters. Boehner is not fit to be the Speaker. His own caucus knows it.

This is tripe, Kudlow. This is not about any politician, it is about this country. You can spend your money, or politicians can, and right now they are spending all they can tax, borrow, and print. When Russia and Israel´s economy failed, they passes a law against printing money to finance deficits. We need one to. We also need an economist, apparently not Kudlow, that will tell the truth and stand up for what needs to be done.

Poster #10 - as usual, a voice of reason.

Boehner´s been in a no-win situation from the get-go. As long as Obama was fully prepared, even eager, to go over the cliff these talks were destined to go nowhere. And grandstanding over taxes would have gained our side (and American taxpayers) nothing.

For years now conservatives have allowed the left to control the narrative and take advantage of the public´s dismal ignorance of economics. It´s just not realistic to expect JB or any other Speaker to stand on a soapbox and try and make up for that in a couple of weeks, especially against a newly re-elected president and demagogue-in-chief.

And is any sitting congresscritter prepared to credibly challenge Boehner for the Speakership? No? Well then, everyone needs to take a deep breath.

Zippy doesn´t have an opinion one way or the other. He´s told what to think, told what to say, told to keep out of the way and go play golf, or basketball, or watch sports, or concerts. He is an empty shell filled with hate that clearly believes in what he´s being fed. He´s loved by the media because he´s just like them - paid a lot of money to know nothing and just read what is put in front of them.

Boehner is just plain useless.

Upholding the Law
Weekly Standard, by Jeff Bergner    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/28/2014 5:18:55 AM     Post Reply
Many Republicans—and a handful of independent commentators like George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—have been highly critical of President Obama’s executive branch overreach. The president has arbitrarily delayed, deferred, or ignored provisions of numerous laws, none more so than his signature Obamacare legislation. There is indeed much to criticize; no other president in recent times has usurped congressional lawmaking powers to the extent Barack Obama has. Administration spokesmen have defended these actions by pointing out that other presidents have also issued executive orders. But President Obama’s actions are less like executive orders in the usual sense of the term than

Obamacare’s Failed State Exchanges

The federal government spent more on broken state-run exchanges than it did on its own troubled system. Of the 14 states, plus the District of Columbia, that established their own health insurance coverage under Obamacare, seven remain dysfunctional, disabled, or severely underperforming. Development of those exchanges was funded heavily by the federal government through a series of grants that totaled more than $1.2 billion—almost double the $677 million cost of development for the federal exchange. Here´s a rundown of the troubled state exchanges and the federal grants they qualified for. Oregon No exchange failed more fully or more spectacularly than Cover Oregon.

A church sign in New York City’s Harlem is warning black women to be on the lookout for a “white homo” trying to steal their man. “Obama has released the homo demons on the black man. Look out black woman. A white homo may take your man,” reads the marquee for ATLAH World Church at Lenox and 123rd. The pastor of the church, James David Manning, has been very critical of President Obama, calling him “The Long Legged Mack Daddy” and often blaming him for the destruction of the black family, the Village Voice reported. “This homosexual demon hoping to enforce as many

Bubbling with excitement, the six-year-old boy could hardly wait to tell his mother what he’d been doing. ‘I was in a film today,’ Stephan cried. ‘There were spotlights and big cameras!’ Stephan’s news was indeed remarkable. Together with his parents — concert pianist Alice Herz-Sommer and her husband Leopold — he was an inmate of a Nazi concentration camp; so the last place on Earth anyone might expect to find a film crew. As Alice herself later recalled, hundreds were dying each day at Theresienstadt camp from disease and malnutrition. Corpses would be piled onto wagons, their limbs hanging out for all

   

 



 
Fresh hope for GOP to take over Senate
New York Post, by John Podhoretz    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/28/2014 4:56:28 AM     Post Reply
For months, the key question about the upcoming midterm congressional elections has been whether Republicans can overcome their six-seat deficit to become the majority party in the US Senate. Now the question has changed somewhat — to whether the surprising strength of Republican candidates in states once considered long shots for the GOP portends disaster for Democrats hobbled by ObamaCare and the president’s weak approval ratings. No one doubted the GOP would come close or better than close to a Senate takeover in November. But every day, the map looks more favorable for the Republicans. First, four races feature wounded Democrats in states

The implementation of this law has broken down at every single level. Harry Reid has chosen to defame those who speak out about their giant, life-threatening problems with Obamacare, but what of the thousand daily headaches the law is causing due to bad design, unintended but entirely predictable consequences, and the error cascade that followed the exchanges’ disastrous launch? Sen. Harry Reid would call these mere trifles since he’s willing to dismiss women with cancer losing their coverage. But I don’t think it’s politically wise to argue that that the people living this stuff every day are not really living

Heather was hired for an entry-level position at the company soon after.

At 13, Novak vowed to devote his life to resurrecting extinct animals. At 14, he saw a photograph of a passenger pigeon in an Audubon Society book and “fell in love.” But he didn’t know that the Science Museum of Minnesota, which he was then visiting with a summer program for North Dakotan high-school students, had them in their collection, so he was shocked when he came across a cabinet containing two stuffed pigeons,

The Congressional Budget Office has more bad news for President Barack Obama: His economic recovery isn’t working — and is much worse than the previous four recoveries. “More than four and a half years after the end of the recession, employment has risen sluggishly — much more slowly than it grew, on average, during the four previous recoveries that lasted more than one year,” the report reads. The CBO also lent credence to Republican insistence that the small declines in unemployment often touted by the White House are largely because of disenchanted and unemployed people dropping out of the labor force and

However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner
