Don´t Blink---Defund It
Red State, by Erick Erickson

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 8/21/2013 6:18:08 AM

I am in the minority among my closest friends. Most of my friends are, as they are expressing on twitter and elsewhere, appalled at Heritage Action for America, For America, and soon other groups running targeted ad campaigns against various Republicans in Congress. The ads are designed to remind voters that those members of Congress and Senators have campaigned against Obamacare, but now will not vote to defund Obamacare. My friends believe these conservative organizations are doing great harm and will potentially hurt Republicans. They find them off putting, likely to do more harm than good, pushing a strategy doomed to fail,

Dismiss Obama as a fatal mistake--a Dictator we do not deserve. Then defund and get rid of Obamacare while we still can.

Remember that 40/40/20 split theory? Rush was lecturing on the arm that point of view does the other day, and how the professional campaign advisors use it to help candidates raise money from politically unsophisticated (i.e. stupid) but rich donors.

That´s the theory behind the idea that we shouldn´t leave ObamaKKKare unfunded as well ~ after all, that 20% in the middle might not like it.

Back to political theory 101 ~ THERE IS NO MIDDLE. Second point, you win more elections getting Republicans to vote for you than by getting Democrats to vote for you. Currently the number of elected Republicans in public office vastly outnumbers that of Democrats.

Republicans didn´t agree to have ObamaKKKare imposed on anybody ~ they must not agree to have it imposed now.

And those wealthy, but unsophisticated donors out there? They can be ignored. Remember, when you win in politics the money comes around later whether you want it or not.

Only about one third of the population fought in the Revolutionary War. Many big movements in our country´s history have been successful with only a small minority of the people. Just because so many GOP are paralyzed by fear that they will lose their hold on power doesn´t mean the fight to defund Obamacare shouldn´t go forth. Obamacare will be a disaster for our country. That so many of the GOP are willing to twiddle their thumbs and do nothing is disgusting. I would rather the attempt be made and fail. I strongly support the spotlight on these do nothing elites through advertising.

In the face of massive voter fraud, we may as well stick with principle. Standard political calculations and election strategies mean nothing when the fix is in. We must BUY airtime and have our best communicators make our case for Liberty and Limited Government.
We must side-step the normal processes and go straight to the people with hard hitting, unapologetic reasoning.

Ted Cruz doing ´Fireside Chats´ could do a lot of good. Many persuadable voters have never even heard the case for conservatism.

The go along to get along Republicans have allowed Obama to run roughshod over the Constitution and helped him spend the country into near bankruptcy. We have been hearing this excuse that they have no power for 4 years. Does anyone seriously think that Pelosi would be hiding out sitting on her hands the way Boehner is if the tables were turned? How do we persuade politicians to listen to their constituents? Yell at them in townhall meetings? Or threaten them with what they are most afraid of - losing their next election.

Defund it. It isn´t about "owning". It´s about implementation causing massive irreparable damage. Fight this with every legal means. And yes, defunding is legal.

Fake conservatives don´t like it because it exposes them. They either believe in conservative principles and are willing to fight and take risks or they are not. We have no need for careerists and squishes.

Considering the implementation of the bill is in total chaos, considering Obama himself is (illegally) delaying politically risky provisions, and considering healthcare for Congress and staffers will be (illegally) subsidized by taxpayers, funding Obamacare would be extremely irresponsible. It should not be too hard to make that case to the American people.

Obamacare will end up just like the tax code. Americans forced to comply with a convoluted mess, so complicated most won´t even bother to figure it out. Just sign your name and send the check. And pray if you ever have to go to the hospital it will all work out. And don´t forget it will be the same corrupt IRS insuring your compliance. Who in his right mind would authorize paying for this mess?

We cannot count on this evil law ´imploding on itself´ as so many defenders of funding it say. The regime will throw as much money as possible at it, the media will cover up the massive problems with it, and before we know it - voila - single payer, because all the insurance companies have gone out of business! How do we recover from that?

Kill the darned thing by starving it of funds - kill it in its cradle, don´t wait until it is insinuated into everyone´s lives, then say it´s too late.

Republicans must remember they were put there for this purpose. If they don´t try everything in their quiver, their base will not help them next year.

The GOP have no intention of ridding us of Obamacare. They want it just as much as the Dems. Should they ever take the WH again and control both houses of Congress they will not abolish it. If anything, they will make it worse. Does Congress e-v-e-r make anything better?

When Bush 43 was president and the GOP held full control of congress for 6 years, did they abolish anything? Anything? In fact, when the GOP voted to drill in ANWAR, it was voted down.

Jeb Bush’s optimism school
Washingotn Post, by E.J. Dionne JR    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 12:09:38 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

   

 



 
Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 worry

If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

Candidate in Key GOP Primary

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

Virginians: Before you go to the polls in November to elect a U.S. senator, there is a very real and terrifying fact you simply must know about Ed Gillespie. No, it’s not that he’s a former lobbyist (though he is). Or that he worked in George W. Bush’s White House (he did), ran the Republican National Committee (that too) and has said he was “torn” between rooting for the Redskins and the Eagles (shudder). It’s far more sinister than that. He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate.

Hillary Clinton is Obama´s
George H.W. Bush:
The designated successor
Washington Examiner, by Hugh Hewitt    Original Article

There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

´Tax Man´ Obama has

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Chances of getting audited

Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered.

The U.S. made clear this week that it wants the International Monetary Fund to be the emergency lender for countries like Ukraine, but American lawmakers have persistently refused to give the IMF the additional financial firepower that it has sought. That tension was evident in meetings concluding this weekend of the IMF, the World Bank and representatives of the Group of 20 major economies: Washington´s long delay in ratifying changes to the IMF´s so-called quota system came under fire from finance ministers and other officials of many countries.

Connecticut estate sells for

A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
