Why Republicans won’t win a sequester
showdown with President Obama:
A GOP response

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/20/2013 7:44:04 PM

Earlier today we posited that Congressional Republicans held a losing political hand when it came to a showdown over the $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts — aka the sequester — set to automatically kick in on March 1. We got a fair number of responses from Republicans who argued with the premise –insisting that under our logic the GOP should simply capitulate to Obama on all matters due to the fact that the president is the more popular figure with the public at the moment. Tony Fratto, a former Bush Administration spokesman and now a partner at Hamilton Place Strategies

Comments:
Wait for it!
Wait for it!

Take the tactical loss to win in the future!
So says a former Bush administration spokesman who works for Hamilton Place Strategies, a consulting firm.

Got Tea?

It´s principles stupid!

The president is a liar. The Democrats will wreck the country for all of us. So......best lay the ground work for the "I told you so!". If we have a nation of idiots then we will all have to pay the price for their stupidity. Hopefully we can raise something from the ashes.

Stand up and walk like a man."

Here is an opportunity for the seriously devolved Republicans to once again reach the Pleistocene level of human evolution.

What part of you have law proposed by Obama, voted for in both chambers of Congress and signed by Obama. What needs to be negotiated? And if you need to negotiate, why wouldn´t you start with the bill that the House passed?

The GOP may be at a tipping point.

To paraphrase Winston "if you won´t fight when you still have some chance you will have to fight when you have no chance."

The game has changed. Now the Demorcrats and Obama are not out to dominate the GOP. They are out to eradicate it.

Don´t you keep thinking that something will occur, something so bad, and the country will turn against Obama. Fast & Furious didn´t do it (one American killed and we don´t know how many Mexicans). Benghazigate didn´t do it (four Americans killed and rescued Americans have had their lips glued shut). Expensive Christmas vacation while the rest of us cut back on gifts and celebrations. Another trip, actually two, and the world is shut out; golfers not allowed on the course; planes in Aspen unable to land. For most Americans lower paychecks this year, and for Medicare patients less preventative tests permitted). And all those people who were out of work? Well most of them are still out of work. I do not believe anything will make him change unless he is impeached.

#5 got it right.

the sequester is another diversion by 0bama.

the debt limit is the big fight so 0bama is pretending to care about the small spending cuts in the sequester so that much needed larger cuts wont happen in the debt limit increase.


also, 0bama does not like to govern (or do anything but golf). it is easy to be prez when you spend a trillion more than you have. it is hard to actually spend only what you have.

How´s this:

What´s "sequester."

99.99% of this...country...haven´t the faintest idea what "sequester" means, or how it is defined.

Just another in a long line of meaningless slogans in a long line of meaningless contrived Bow-Boy crises.

What needs to be done is to quite playing the game.

I think as well that the Republicans are at a major major turning point. If they buckle because of that doom/disaster photop wth first responders yesterday, then there is no hope for them. Dry, tired-sounding talking points and not a fresh phrase or idea except from Senators Cruz or Paul.

Time to pin "the tale" on the O´donkey. There is video of the one talking up the sequester. GOP should spend some money for a prime time commercial demonstrating that the idea that O proposed then (sequester)is the idea he now opposes. It would be a stark example of hypocrisy--even if most of the public has no concept of what sequester means.

Despite unrelenting apocalyptic warnings, I could not care less what happens to the GOP. They have nothing to lose by doing the right thing, and nothing to gain by once again surrendering. Obviously, in a More Free Stuff society, anyone who advocates prudence will be a pariah. Our political system being what it is, lacking the integrity to cut a tiny 2% slice from projected increases in spending, its clear that economic collapse is inevitable. Plan accordingly.

When is the spineless Republican Party going to stick with doing and supporting what is the best and right thing and quit worrying about what sells or what political advantage they might get?
Obama holds all the cards.
But LoFo´s are waking up to him.
Let him make his mistakes.

On the day the House Oversight Committee held Lois Lerner in contempt, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Congress should impeach Attorney General Eric Holder if he does not indict those like Lerner for their roles in the IRS´s targeting of conservative groups. In a Thursday appearance on Sean Hannity´s radio program, Cruz said Holder should be impeached for "defying Congress and the rule of law." He said Holder´s actions were not in the spirit of the Department of Justice, which Cruz said has "a bipartisan tradition of resisting partisan pressure and upholding the rule of law." Cruz cited examples of Holder´s

Wall Street Journal, by Beth Reinhard    Original Article

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah launched an “anti-cronyism” agenda Monday with a column in the National Review urging the Republican Party to advocate populist, free-market reforms over tax loopholes, government subsidies and federal bailouts. That kind of Republican party, he writes “could not only unify and excite conservatives, but appeal to hardworking families in the purple and blue communities that President [Barack] Obama’s special-interest favoritism is leaving behind.” Mr. Lee is scheduled to continue the rollout with television appearances, town halls, a speech at the Heritage Foundation on April 30, and several pieces of legislation.

The Tea Party Establishment:

Will the real Republican Establishment please stand up? In the four years since the Supreme Court struck down fundraising regulations that effectively gave the Democratic and Republican parties a monopoly on large-scale political activity, a collection of Tea Party-affiliated organizations has arisen in Washington that competes with the GOP for campaign contributors, money and influence -- and over what legislation to push and which candidates to nominate. The groups, including the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks and the Senate Conservatives Fund, have moved aggressively to kill legislation they oppose and oust incumbent Republicans they deem insufficiently conservative.

House Speaker John Boehner addressed the behind-the-scenes maneuvering by House conservatives mobilizing against his reelection as Speaker on Monday, telling Fox News host Megyn Kelly that he´s “confident” he´ll win reelection next year. “Some are suggesting you are not going to be the Speaker, even if the GOP retains control [of the House] in 2014,” Kelly told Boehner in an interview on her program The Kelly File on Monday evening. “I’ve heard those rumors before,” Boehner responded, seemingly referring to an unsuccessful coup attempt at the beginning of this Congress. “What say you?” Kelly followed up. “Listen, my members know me and they know

An Arizona conservative congressman is shining light on how President Barack Obama is using $3 million of taxpayer money to teach National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) officials how to lobby Congress. In the first of a series of efforts targeting wasteful government spending, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) wrote to House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) last week to pressure him to include language banning the Obama administration from spending money on the program. The program, highlighted by outgoing Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) in his 2013 annual “Wastebook,” operates through Georgetown University’s Government Affairs Institute. “NASA searches for intelligent life…

If you’re going to win in politics you first have to know what politics actually is.{SNIP}The base of the GOP is still primarily made up of those willing to pledge their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor for the cause of liberty. But they are lions led by lambs in the feckless GOP leadership. They are not warriors. They are bureaucrats. The difference is a warrior takes territory while a bureaucrat protects his own.

“To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan said Wednesday, “it’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan, who was making the economic case for reforming our nation’s immigration system, was speaking at a breakfast hosted by the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Ryan called the nation’s immigration laws “chief” among the problems that are curbing economic growth. Noting the rate of retirement among baby boomers, Ryan said reforming the immigration system is necessary to fill future jobs. “Please know that we understand the value of immigration,” Ryan told the crowd. “We

A group of conservative House Republicans put a Medicare “doc fix” bill in mortal peril with their objections – but then acquiesced to a plan from GOP leadership to pass it without a vote. The vote was repeatedly delayed this morning as top Republicans scrambled to find the necessary votes for the legislation. Making the problem more difficult: the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, meaning it needed a 2/3 majority rather than the normal 1/2 majority. Huddling with leadership in an ornate room off the House floor, a group of GOP lawmakers who form

When House Republicans penned their Pledge to America in 2010, they convinced American voters they would advance a conservative agenda if they regained control of the House that year. Four years later, what promises have they actually delivered? ObamaCare is still intact, our national debt has grown by $3 trillion, and Republicans have capitulated to Democrats on every issue from the debt ceiling to the budget. Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate have failed conservatives and have failed to keep their Pledge to America. Let’s examine how the GOP pledge has fallen flat.

Maine’s tea party governor, reared in poverty, is on a mission to reform the state’s welfare system. Gov. Paul LePage rolled out a four-proposal package on Monday that will get committee hearings in the legislature Tuesday afternoon. The reforms, which mostly tighten restrictions around the program, are part of an ongoing crusade against what LePage has described as a bloated program. “Big, expensive welfare programs riddled with fraud and abuse threaten our future,” he said in his state of the state speech last month. “Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not — and never will— create prosperity.”

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
