STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Geithner; Sens. Mark Warner, D-Va., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.; Gov. Brian Schweitzer, D-Mont.
Grover Norquist must go.
In other words, if Obama takes us over the fiscal cliff, Bohner and the house GOP’s aren’t going to give Obama money for some very serious spending programs like Obamacare.
I think the GOP need to not fund that mess anyways.
What exactly is the difference between the Commurats and the GOP? I forgot.
They twist and turn everything.
Maria,"money honey--cnbc" brings up how bout some spending cuts? Dividend taxes the biggest threat,401's etc pensions,it removes incentives,she's great.
so it will be with Republicans who sign on to this idiocy.
You answered your own question. The Rs will be the bad guys no matter what results from these so-called “negotiations.”
I PRAY that they will not forget GHWB’s words and how they were used as a cudgel against him forevermore. If they keep his experience in mind it just may give them enough spine to keep saying no to Obama and his friends.
Truly good! Doesn't get much better!
Zero as a bank robber!!
Wow! Good for Grover!
The RATs are 100% wild-eyed, baby-killing, green-weenie, P/M union-thug whackjobs.
The GOP are about 40%
Norquist "we need tv cameras on the hearings",bring in c-spam.They don't want to hear that.
If Norquist is dirty he's slicker than obozo.
And Kristol doesn't understand that raising the rates will split the GOP possibly causing the emergence of a third party. That is the real reason Obama is pushing this.
The sad part is that there will be no real reduction in spending. If we can't reduce spending by $100 billion a year in a $3.7 trillion annual budget, then both parties are not serious about the financial extremis this country is in. We are in dire straits and all these people want to do is rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Mark Steyn posted a brilliant column on the subject. Mark Steyn: America not paying its fair share You cannot simultaneously enjoy American-sized taxes and European-sized government. One or the other has got to go."
Only if you're a statist.
Geithner on every program pointing the finger at the GOP, and mouthing in alphabetical order each, and every talking point as instructed.
The fightin' words:
Freeze budget growth.
Fire the "non-essential" bureaucRATs...EN MASSE!
Alinsky RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
This is why “Grover Norquist” is becoming a household name.
Next question; can the R's survive without us. Perhaps, but only as a fringe minority party.
Somebody's got to get serious.
Read Mark’s column Saturday. One of his best laying it all out.
Aren’t those Steyn articles one in the same...his weekend column.
I feel the same way you do....How do we do it? do we have the time to do it? Can we do it..knowing how stupid the masses are? And how do you deal with the lies and the media backing those lies.
Part of me wants to get fired up and start working..part of me wants to run to the mountains and go Galt with guns.
thanks for the boost!
