I know we hold Sarah, close to our hearts, for all she has done. I know most of us want Allen West for our next President. I know that. But can you even imagine Michelle Malkin, as our first woman President?
The woman is incredible. She nails this worthless President, every time he opens his mouth, which is often. She nails the Liberals and the media, for everything they say or do, ten minutes after they do it. You can read the news on her site, or on Twitchy, three days before it appears in the mainstream media.
If we can't have Allen West, then I want this woman for my next President. She is so over-qualified for the job, it isn't even worth talking about.
Besides that, she is just drop-dead gorgeous.
Senate Republicans are already caving. Thus, conservative Republicans in the House must end Obama's power grab, not cave on raising tax-rates and most important, don't let any blame-game polls be a motivating concern when it's time to vote. Let the nation go over the "fiscal cliff" and you'll bear witness to a REAL shellacking of Obama Democrats in 2014 and beyond.
She's right, of course. A lot more folks are getting on board the L.I.B. strategy, and one way to LIB would be to primary all the remaining RINOS and send back only conservatives, even if it costs the majority. Fiscal cliffs would be so typical that no one would care anymore.
Ignore the Republicans, I say. Vote West, and send decent guys and gals money to run.
Michelle is always great. Unfortunately there will have to be a wholesale change in GOP leadership or a new party to get back to basics.
Expecting the GOPe to do what the GOPe has shown no inclination to do for the past two years is like spinning your wheels in the mud. You're only going to burn out your engine if you don't change strategy.
The problem with Michelle's logic is that Boehner was NOT put in power with this last go-round of Republicans and/or Conservatives. He was already part of the establishment that has taken care of itself, so he owes no allegiance to her sentiments at this point.
Once they REMOVE him from power, THEN he may have learned his lesson.
Michelle Malkin is spot on when she mentions Andrew Breitbart.
As devastating as his death was - it truly made people start going out and doing what he did. Now there are more and more.
Just think what the reports would have been like if there had only been the corrupt MSM, and no citizen journalists (thank you, Jen!), no rightscoop, nothing ...
I agree. The time for compromise has been over for years. If the Repubs want to remain a viable party they need to stop being the "me too, just not as much" party. Democrat-lite is dead. Boehner needs to grow a set or go home.
I say, pass a bill permanantly renewing the current Bush tax rates and GO HOME. Let Reid and Obama figure out what to do next. It will be hard for them to say the Repubs raised taxes on the "middle class" if the House bill renews the current rates for EVERYONE. Reid and Obama can either go along or pass their own version of a bill in the Senate which will probably raise taxes on the "rich", or let the economy go "over the cliff", raising rates on everyone. It's their call. Period. In any case the decision will be the Democrats and they will either own the mess of tax increases or the glory of renewed Bush tax rates.
More on McCarthy
California Republicans say McCarthy endorsed gerrymandering that lost them 4 seats, but kept his own.
This story indicates that the House Whip did his job and came up with the Conservative purge list - perhaps at the request of Speaker Boehner and/or Majority Leader, Cantor. It was presented to the Steering Committee.
"The source alleges that McCarthy brought the criteria list to the House GOP Steering Committee where it was used to purge four conservatives from their House committee spots."
The wrong person is speaker, that job should belong to Mikeinidaho!
Btw, how's my Idaho? I miss living there. :(
I was surprised to hear Idaho is going to participate in the health insurance exchanges. But, then I always thought Otter was a republican lite...but, I could be wrong.
Thanks for the vote, but no thanks! I'd be thrown out or found dead of a "suicide" in a Washington DC park in only a day or two!
As for Otter, I agree, he's another "go along to get along" Repub weasel. At least Labrador, our Rep in the House, is a good TP guy.
Idaho is fine, at least up here in the North far from the capital in Boise!
Perhaps the Republicans need a lot less "civility" to deal with these socialists, and start being A LOT more like the late Andrew Breitbart. He knew how to deal with these characters.
What are you talking about Michelle? I voted a straight Capitulation ticket.
The Capitulation Party...
I like how it rolls off the tongue like loose lemons off the back of a turnip truck.
The Capitulation Party... Isn't that what used to be known as the Republican Party? I remember they used to have balls.... But got tired of people kicking them all the time so they took their balls and went home. Or something. ;-)
Umm, wouldn't that be "loose lemons off a LEMON truck"? Just asking!
As for the new name of the Republican Party, you are correct, sir!
Does anyone believe that John Boehner will not cave to Obama? He's putting on a front and holding off as long as he can, but he will cave because he has the spine of a serpent and he's a big-government Republican. The GOP has become the 2nd big-goverment party.
If he caves, I will resign as GOP precinct delegate and go full-speed-ahead into the new Constitution Freedom Party.
If the Unions provide such valuable services to workers, they shouldn't have anything to fear from Right to Work legislation. Unions should be able to thrive on their own merits.
I think I am going to do this every week although I have written to Boehner 4 times last week. My message to him and my Congress Critter is simply this. Stop him! That is the reason you were elected again. Stop him from spending all of our money. You hold the purse strings.
"You hold the purse strings."
I have been thinking about that. Where have Boehner and the Capitualation Party been as Obama spends trillions? Just capitulating or is Obama doing this by executive order?
What about a puss in a purse?
I have a wee bit of Irish in this mutt blood of mine too! But more than anything, I have the Navy heritage that will never leave me.
Boehner tries to mess with my purse, he will be missing a hand and it won't be because of a feline, just sayin'
A puss with a purse, not a puss in a purse.
LOL - that's spot on: if Boehner tries to grab your (collective, tax) purse, he's in for a very nasty surprise!
Me, I wouldn't want to mess with that Tom in the purse ...
