Put Boehner on notice. Fuckin swineball asswipe. Where your backbone?Used car salesmen have more scruples.
No need to get all bent out of shape regarding the RINOs. They're just smoothing the way for the biggest RINO of all.
I still remember when Boehner went on Rush's show last summer, trying to sell his debt ceiling increase agreement made with Obama. Rush eviscerated him without even intending to - Boehner hasn't been heard on a conservative show since. He is a schmuck, a phony, and a sell-out. He has to go. I can't stand the man.
The old guard of the GOP is dying off and being replaced by fresh blooded conservatives. The future is bright. Remove the individual mandate and Obamacare crumbles. Nobody better try and resurrect portions of this socialist bill. Start over or nothing.
Knew we were in trouble when he started crying. The men I know who are the worst offenders of "do what I say, not what I do" are wimpy crybabies.
Sick that we ended up with a candidate we don't want when, this time, we actually had other great candidates. We cannot give up.
It's time to clean house completely. This is why I think the House & Senate is just as important as the Presidential election. The (R) leadership is still deluding themselves that we the people will go back to sleep and allow them to continue on their power trips. I'm hoping (and praying) that Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, et al get primaried.
I love Mark Levin. It is no surprise at all to me to see the GOP trying to cave on Obamacare. It's very revealing since Romney was the author that the GOP would try to adopt parts of it.
I also agree if this happens, Boehner has to go. He's been a very weak Speaker of the House.
The people need to keep their ears open to what is going on. We can change things if we stay engaged.
Americanbornincanada is completely correct. we must ALL contact the "leaders" and bombard them. Based on previous statements and actions, I don't doubt boehner is planning this...look at his support for the fast n furious investigation. we need to support in whatever way possible all solid conservatives who are challenging these weasels. these gutless rinos are major contributors to our problems. we need to flush these people down the toilet
Health insurance is a Business based on business practices. We have no obligation to purchase it and they have no obligation to offer it in forms that are not profitable to them. Let the freakin free market do its job and have the government keep its' nose out of there!
DO NOT delude yourself - Romney will compromise on Obama/Hillary/Romneycare.
The Bushes were socialist sympathizers for generations - since 1933 when Senator Prescott Bush colluded with Wall Street tycoons to overthrow the government and establish a socialist state in the USA.
Socialism marches on in Romney and in Mormonism too. Like Mohammedanism, Mormonism is a comprehensive religious-socialist-political-economic system.
Boehner sure has been a huge disappointment. Will enough congress members vote to keep him as leader or start with someone better? It seems like suicide to vote for him if he is planning to keep parts of Obamacare instead of starting over.
What is with the new format? It is very, very hard on the eyes. Please abandon it and return to the former look of your comment section. Otherwise, I will have to say adios. Sorry. I don't want to leave. But the new look is not in the least reader-friendly.
I'm not sure what isn't "reader friendly" about it. Do you miss the borders? Or the big boxes? I always felt they slowed my reading.
But then again, I'm used to reading code.
It reminds me very much of reading code. One reason I break my long replies up into smaller paragraphs is because it reads easier (for me, anyway). I feel the look has taken away the professional style and turned it into a long page of cluttered text. Not very pleasing to my eyes nor very easy to read. But maybe I just have to get used to it.
Just my opinion, but even though I'm an old fashioned guy, it reminds me of taking away all the new-fangled graphics and leaving only text format. Much like typing in all capitals is a bit irritating to the eyes. Oh, well.
The spacing, the shading, the highlighted boxes, easily accessible choices - they all make for a very pleasant background for commenting. I didn't realize it till it was gone from here, but when I go to any other site, the story is prominent and at the bottom, like a side bar as it were, is the long list of comments strung together.
Here at TRS, it appears the story is just the intro and the posters are the main feast. It's what I enjoy so much and feel so comfortable with here. I realize changes are always happening, some good , some bad, but for now it was nice to see the old format return. :)
once again Levin jumps the shark ... as do many of the comments here ... none of you ran for office in 2010 and I doubt many of you actually worked for a campaign ... when you say "we" who are you talking about ?
A politico story with anon sources ... really ??? you are going to trust that ... wow ... just wow ...
calm the hell down, take a breath and think for a second ... even if it was the plan why on earth would anyone leak this now ???? they wouldn't ...
Our resident from Team Etch-a-sketch to spew the propaganda has arrived.
Don't pay any attention to the corruptocrats you know the GOPe are.
Just sit down and shut up and continue to vote for the corruption.
The conservatives have no place in the GOP is what you are telling us.
Fine, we get it. Get your statist over the finish line without us. We are done! The party is over. You can no longer rely on conservatives for votes any longer.
Deal with it! We will no longer allow our freedoms to be taken away by the corrupt GOPe who is not on our side.
This election is about the corrupt political class against we the people. We are no longer distracted by Democrat vs Republican. That's so yesterday.
We are just not into you!
This may be wishful thinking, but does it sound like congress expects the supreme court to strike down the health care bill?
I was so glad to see Pelosi go, I really wanted Boehner to suceed. But Boehner is nothing but a gutless wonder. He would sell his own mother if he thought it would make the Democrats like him.
Mark is right. Boehner needs to go.
From the moment we learned that GOP leaders were refusing to put language defunding ObamaCare in the continuing resolutions, we should have known they were secretly for it. They walk like liberals, quack like liberals, so we have to dispose of them like liberals.
They AREN'T RINOS! They are Republicans!
How many "great conservatives" in DC have, when push comes to shove, proven themselves "RINOs", John Kyl, Jeff Flake, Tom Coburn, John Cornyn even Mike Lee and Marco Rubio signed on to the SkyNet bill just a week ago.
You conservatives are the one's who are deluded. You somehow have convinced yourselves that year after year of lying to America and grovelling to Democrats has been an honest mistake much regretted. Get real!
You can't take over the Party by begging. You have to kick in the door and punch the leaders in the face.
We need Allen West a speaker!
Every single day there's something else, until I feel like I can't take it anymore and end up ticked off, angry and frustrated. I decided to start a list of ALL of the issues. I get an e-mail from my congressman every couple of weeks, but since he's on the budget/finance committee, he never addresses any of the other important issues.
So, I've decided to start treating him like an employee, as I did in the business world. Once I week, I will send him a short e-mail with one issue (include the link to the news site), and ask him what HE is doing about it and ask for a response within a week. I'm really, really good at follow up, so he'd better reply or I'll put him on notice that he's not performing, and his job is at stake.
We all need to start putting them on notice, that we are paying attention and want answers on ALL issues. Start sending e-mails and follow up! Time to put the elites on a job performance plan!
I would agree with West as Speaker. I actually hadn't thought of him in this capacity but it would make a lot of sense.
West is a force to be reckoned with and would get things done like Newt did when he was Speaker.
I feel the same Maxine. I get e mails from my reps, and even from the democrats-and I never fail to email them.... I get SO frustrated because from both sides, I always get the standard, "I understand your concern, but here's what I'm doing..." Which is ALWAYS the exact opposite of what they need to do!!! I can't vote- and I don't know if they know that, but it seems like they just don't give a crap either way. I like your idea- but would it work if they know they don't need to worry about losing a vote I can't give?
I hope that Politico is wrong, we know it's part of the Obama reelection campaign. Time will tell. I don't trust anything that I know started at that site.
I'm late to this, didn't hear this, but like Levin said, if it's true- these ba$tards need to be called and e mailed and pestered non stop until they drop it! There is NO popular parts of a government plan and if these jerks are bowing down and rolling over (and I can believe that this is possible because they always do it!) they need to all be cleared out in November. This MUST not stay! Government has NO Freaking business in healthcare!!!!!!! For pete's sake, they can't run what they've taken over now, our Vets have lousy care from the government, and they have NO Stinking right to have anything to do with this! This pi$$es me off something fierce. Sorry about the language, but I've about had it!
Yeah, fudge was not my choice either.... I felt a little guilty, just come home from church and saw this. I'm like, OK. Another test. Dang!
Just needed an appropriate response to this news. My first response (in my head) was FUUUUUDDGE!!! (in different words).
Sorry Ozzie- I don't wanna scare anyone again with that lol. So I put up my fighting pose just for you! Howz that?
Listen folks, these politicians are just not very smart. How do they have enough sense to get on a ballot to begin with? They cannot get it !!
Their brains are washed in the Washington funk. They can no longer think like a freedom loving American. The cannot imagine small govt. that does not "invest" and does not provide healthcare, education, jobs,food, shelter, etc.
