Romney's concession speech pointed out why I believe he lost the election: time for partisanship to end in W.DC. Puke! Its time for the Right to order the cement trucks pooring an un-scalable wall in the isle...period. Let the Dems self destruct. I'm so tired of the R's bailing out the D's and then getting blamed for the D's "unintended" destruction that always results.
I've been saying this for years, that Obama WANTS the USA to fail. His whole agenda is to destroy the USA and turn it into a flaccid has been.
In my mind, I'm walking up to Boehner, telling him to bend over, giving him a swift kick in the nether end... so hard that when he wakes up he's in a frozen spot north of Canada in another decade and has amnesia.
I like the current discussion here, about a new Party. Certainly not easy to accomplish, but I like the idea.
If the idea interests you, or at least you're not totally against it, I found a site online, that talks about it. I don't agree with everything in the article, but it does make some excellent points, and goes over the necessary items required, to initiate a new Party. I would like your opinion on it, especially, MiketheMarine. Here are the opening paragraphs, just to tease you into reading the whole thing.
"The Democratic Party proudly offers economic security and more benefits for the poor and working class – in return for more taxes, more regulations, and forfeiting our personal and local community independence. The Republicans offer to protect us from the Democrats and then turn around and grant subsidies for the super rich and build prisons for the poor. The resulting wealth gap creates more demand for the moderate socialism offered Democrats. And then we have the big government Republicans like George Bush who offer us the worst of both worlds…
Year by year we lose we lose freedom and independence to the one-two punch of government and corporate bureaucracy. Politicians promise change, but actually offer the same two stale options: moderate socialism or wage serfdom."
Here's the link for the entire article. It's too big to copy here. Pay attention to the comments at the end. Some are pretty good.
The Republicans have painted themselves into a corner and have no options other than bend over. Boehner is a joke and the 65% of Republicans who didn't ever bother to go to the poles and vote this election are finding out the joke is on all of us because they didn't vote. I voted I have the right to bitch, the 65% who didn't vote had better just STFU.
Time for a new party. Combine Tea Party, constitution party etc. come up with a new letter to represent the real people
The rates need to go up for everyone. Over half of this country voted for the slime in office and now they need to pay the piper.
...compromising with Mao Obama ACT II , it is DANCING with the D E V I L my friends, it will send the U.S.of A. to FINANCIAL ARMAGEDDON . So my American friends grab your BIBLES , GUNS and GOLD and head to them HILLS."
ELECTIONS DO HAVE CONSEQUENCES !
Why should the Republicans in the House compromise on anything? We are all going off the financial cliff on 1 January, so Obama has bought it. Let him eat it. If the economy collapses as a result of sequestration, Obama CANNOT blame it on Bush. It was his deal with the Republicans in the House, so now let him live with it. Maybe a dose of fiscal reality is just what Reid and the Democrats need to convince them that it's time to reduce spending, not just constantly raise taxes.
Boenig announced their sequestration layoffs today, 30% of management (big salaries and large tax amounts). Cannot wait to see them all in the foreclosure process and unemployment line. Elections Have Consequences.
Another company bought off by Barky to hold off until after the election.
Our new platform MUST BE RECIPROCITY. Lock us out of the room? NO worries, we will vote against it. Refuse to pass a budget? Then NOTHING gets done. I'm tired of the PC crap and being told to be a good little soldier and get it line. It's all for the greater good.
I say, Bull crap. It isn't for the greater good whan only HALF of us are paying for it.
no no no, I don't smoke it no more, I'm tired of wakin' up on the floor.
No thank you please, it only makes me sneeze, and then it make it hard to find the door.
Love it. Boehner and legal pot, blowin smoke either way.
I don't believe biapartisanship has a place in goverment besides the for one issue and that being for the common defense of this country. In my opinion the less bipartisanship in goverment the better and this leads to less government overall. This a good for everyone concern. After all our Founding Fathers did not show much bipartisanship whe it came to writing the Constitution and Bill of Rights. It took Our Founding Fathers how long to accomplish this issue.Maybe if they practice more non partisanshihip they would not have as many issues to resolve, because the lobbist would come to the conclusion there is no point to rasing the issue, because it would take to long to resolve the issue and this fact in it self would lead to less government and better laws. Then maybe we can reduce the time spent in D.C. by our Reps. Then they can spend more time in there own Districts and learn the real issues that matter to there Constituants.
He has never been gracious. Remember him taunting the Republicans last term with the "I won" comment? Or how about, "you can all come along for the ride - just don't do alot of talking". I have many more examples. Shall I go on?
You are looking at it wrong. Maobama wants a socialist country and those of us that are angry over this are the ones who will have money stolen by the fed to give to ghetto rats and illegal aliens. That's what happens when you grow up and they are using your hard work and cash to pay for those who refuse to work.
Sorry for the ignorant question(s)....but can someone explain why the Prez wins "by default" with a stalemate? Wouldn't it make him look bad as it breaks his promises for bi-partisanship while simultaneously tanking the economy? It is possible that Boehner is just positioning himself as the conciliary half of this negotiation so when things fall apart he can point back to his words/efforts and step away from the mess that is coming (on behalf of all Republicans)?
Thanks, RS members....I discovered you during the election and am so grateful for voices of reason!
It's gonna be a long 4 years .... we need to stick together. It's good to have another voice here at TRS.
RSR, I just read that Corey Booker is seriously thinking of challenging Christie.
So much for that Dem love.
Any truth to the rumor I just started that they are making a movie about The Mommas and The Papas, and they want him to play Mama Cass?
Well, that's been the word around here for quite some time. Perhaps Christie thought if he had a love fest with Obama, the Dems wouldn't challenge him. Like I said in the other thread, Christie destroyed his own career last week... it's in shambles, just like his beloved Jersey shore.
Boehner will do nothing to stop the bleeding... he is a phony and a spineless liar.
Reid is an enemy of this country.
Obama is a traitor.
I find that this 4 years, I may have to stop watching the news because honestly, I can't take this Washington B.S. anymore. It'll be the same thing as last session... except this time, the freaking Republicans will cave even more than they already have.
If conservatives don't agree with republicans, then they should takek the next step and form the official tea party, because republicans needs to cut a deal with the pres or their party is done.
I think a great many REAL conservatives (Tea Party) chose not to vote for a moderate. We are sick to death of the Republican idiots compromising and doing many of the same things that the accursed Democrats do. We have shell-shocked, spineless leadership in the Republican party (Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, etc.) who are not only impotent and sightless, but also corrupt.
So, you make a valid point. We must form a third party to confront both evils or America is doomed. And you're also right... the Republicans are too weak and will likely cave... at least their pathetic, lap-dog leadership will. There are a few rock solid folks up there who are posing as Republicans right now (they're really Tea Party folks)... and that helps. But things have to change dramatically for things to get better. The damned Democrats have sold out to the devil and many Republicans are following suit.
I'm independent and will proudly and passionately support a 3rd party in 2016.
Alright... I thought you were trying to make a valid point. If you're just being a troll, then get the heck out of this blog... the world is already too full of snarky, ignorant people. I hope you're not one of them.
Right on. When the TEA party was powering the elections in 2010 we had a sweep and now that the RINO party took over, they couldn't even take control of a do nothing senate. Pathetic....
Looks like you won't see it coming.
Pat Caddell already said it: we're witnessing the second fall of the Whig party.
How many of us do you think will listen to Carl Rove now? The people who think he is worth listening to are in the shallow minority. Tuesday's turnout proved that, if nothing else.
Do you recall how well and effectively the DNC negotiated with conservatives during the stimulus bill and Maobamacare? They look conservatives out of the room. They got ZERO votes from any conservatives. They stated that first you must vote in favor of the bill in order to learn what was in it. Is that what you suggest we allow happen? They lock us out of the room but we should smooch their asses to keep from getting fleeced? I don't know if you are bright enough to see it but we are being fleeced every single day. Maobamacare is now the law and about 70% of the public is against it. Your party is dead. They committed suicide by blowing off the energized portion of their base. They told us to fall in line or else. WEll, we did fall in line and they managed to LOSE anyway.
Now, it is our turn. You can call me shallow all you want, but guess who's vote they will never get again. Plus, I don't know if you've noticed but far more people agree with me and are sick of your old, white, grey haired, RINO party. They haven't done a damn thing for me or mine since Reagan. You can join our bandwagon or continue to support the losers. I don't much care.
