I heard the Kenyan retard whining that the GOP wants to do everything at the last minute. Why doesn’t somebody, ANYBODY, say, “Okay Barry. Show us ONE budget that you and your boy, Dingy Harry, have ever sent to Congress”.
The one and only statement I want to hear from this asshole is “I quit”!
And right there is YOUR problem. Republicans are NOT Conservatives. Get it through your head and you can see the game in a different light entirely.
I don’t have a PROBLEM. The republicans are a hell of a lot more conservative than the liberals that are running this country. You want another party? Well I wouldn’t mind it either but it will take decades before a viable, credible conservative party could win, it will be an uphill battle into the wind. We will be fighting media, new immigrants, the takers, and social issues. There isn’t any time left so we better get behind what we have.
The solution is simple: How about we take back OUR party ? We the Conservatives outnumber the RINO quislings by a healthy margin. Let’s throw our weight around for a change.
No, but you do need to include the PRICE tag-—
That is what has to be done. When they call this house for money I tell them precisely why they won’t get any. But for right now, this country is dangling by a thread, time is running out and the only weapon we have between us and tyranny are the house republicans.
Hah! They’re singing, “There Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens.”
OBAMA: “I’ve tried to work with the Republicans but they are too determined to raise taxes on the middle class and give their rich buddies big tax cuts...”
Wow that intelligent way of speaking is impressive
He is SO divisive it is sickening!
you can see sheeple at home going “Ya Ya! That’s right! Stick it to em Barry”
Obama’s poor buddies:
Jeffrey Immelt GE and jobs czar
-net worth is $60 million dollars
Bill Gates ‘s Net Worth is about
Zuckerbergs (Facebook) whose net worth was Forbes estimated at $17.5 billion
and annual salary of $22 million.
Billionaire Warren Buffett $46 B
Michael Bloomberg NYC mayor $25 billion
Nancy Pelosi is among the richest members of Congress, with an estimated net worth of approximately $58 million the 12th highest estimated net worth in Congress
Pelosi’s Gvt paycheck? $194,000 (with O’s new pay rate)
JayZ and beyonce (first fistbumpers BFFs)a reported combined net worth of more than $700 million

Given the choice between a conservative and a Communist, too many RINOs will pick the communist. That is the problem.

This President and his party are willing to take this nation further down and blame the Republican “Majority Party”. You and I know the republicans are not the majority party in DC but most Americans think they are. Ignorance. It’s sad to say but true. This is a fight for control of the House. The Democrats will likely win it and why? John Boehner.
The truth is its the Republican controlled House thats the BIG elephant in the room. OBAMA IS RIGHT! They really are the problem. Just not for the reasons Obama claims in all his lies. Shame on Boehner for all he has allowed this President to do since the GOP gained control in 2010. The truth is, the Republicans no longer deserve to keep the House. If I feel this way as much as I dislike Nancy Pelosi I know millions of other feel this way.
At this point I see a super majority happening in 2014.
I think this is exactly what Boehner wants. Less work for him if the GOP is the minority party.
We all know Obama HATES America and the Constitution. Knowing that, can you blame him for taking advantage of the do nothing Republicans?
We need a new Speaker. Someone who knows how to make Obama and his theory look stupid. It's not enough to say "Raising taxes is bad". It has to be explained to the American people WHY it is a bad idea and make Obama look like an idiot.
Well, the last I heard Boehner agreed that the rich need to pay more.
We've lost the argument because we do not have anybody articulate to be speaking to the American people. Problem is, too many people are in Congress claiming they are against raising taxes solely to keep a campaign promise but deep down inside they really have no idea how the whole theory works. To them it's just a shallow campaign promise. Nothing more.
Next week the unemployment checks stop. Boehner will get blamed for this and everything else. Blaming the republicans for the fiscal cliff has been a goal of the democratic party. They are clearing the way to take over the House in 2014. It appears they will take it.
According to the news, the democrats won big in November yet EVERY news event since has somehow been the blame of the republicans from Hurricane Sandy to the School Mass Murders and the recent northeast snowstorms.
The republicans do not deserve to keep the House in 2014. If I feel this way as much as I dislike Nancy Pelosi then millions of others do too.
At this point I see the democrats with a super majority come November 2014. Hey, I give them this - they worked hard for it.
Boehner should have been replaced long ago. Obama's no longer the problem. It's the people who allow Obama to keep acting with these tactics that's the problem.
The GOP has failed America as much as the democrats have destroyed it.
MB/al queda BUMP
A pox on both their houses!
The same reason you’d buy a 2014 Edsel? The name has been so tarnished and beaten by those on the inside of the party (let alone the media and Dems), no concise plan of action nor detailed reasons have come from the GOP in ages.
Why again should anyone fight to re-establish the GOP name?? Maybe they should start backing gay ‘marriage’, or illegals...Yeah, that’ll bring everyone back to the fold...
What we have got another four years of this mess. The republicans are in bed with the rats. What better do we have to do?
LOL! SPLENDID capture of Republicans! Love it!
In order to extend the Bush tax cuts you need a new bill. If there is no bill, then the tax rates revert back to the Clinton-era tax rates. Of course it requires passage by both houses of Congress and the signature of the President. Where have you been?
From Dec. 17, 2010:
“The bill [that Obama signed], which was largely worked out earlier this month between the White House and Congressional Republicans, extends the Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans for two years, extends unemployment benefits for 13 months and includes a one-year Social Security tax cut, among other measures.”
Thanks for your patience kabar! The way I had read this 2010 action was that it was Obama (by himself) had extended the cuts. I don’t recall the huge clash and “emergency” that we have now, so I thought it was a simple thing of him just “extending the current bill”. I suppose Obamacare was thick and heavy around that time(?), so perhaps the tax increases and ensuing drama were saved for another day.
Still - I wish the Republicans would lay the burden on Obama - if it was good enough two years ago, it is good enough for today. The economy has not improved that much, even by official numbers. (If any in actual “main street” reality).
I was in the shower. What did he say?
McConnell will fold like an old blanket. The fix has been in for weeks. they want to avoid the onslaught of conservative rage so they are putting off until there is no time on the clock. This is such a sickening thing to watch.
217 socialist will sign a request for a vote including 40 republicrats. Boehner will “oppose” but under the rules he will say he has to call for a vote. It will pass and all conservatives will be screwed!! The “deal” will be Tax increases and MORE SPENDING!! It will be the capitulation of our lives!! All hell must then break lose or we are finished!! This is our party!! We out number these socialists 3 to 1 !! Kick them out of our party!! No more McCains. No more Romney. GET THE HELL OUT WE ARE TAKING OVER. Boehner must be voted out on January 3rd!!!email your senators and representative NOW!!We aren’t buying this cave in!!
MSM is now gearing up for the SOB stories.
People crying in the streets begging for food.
What’s the saying...”Politicians are like diapers, you have to change them frequently and for the same reason.” ;o)
This fiscal cliff hysteria is intended to cover the real fiscal cliff that is looming over the horizon. If you will remember, Obama wants unfettered control over raising the national debt.
Now he knows that the House, under the Constitution has that power and he does not. He actually tried to make this part of a deal.
Raise the debt limit and do nothing to control the Federal Spending and witness what a REAL FISCAL CLIFF looks like.
We are at the precipice...
By the way, he would like nothing more than the raising of taxes on ALL AMERICANS. I am sure this is beyond his wildest dreams.
Day in and day out saying he is raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires and setting the base line at $250,000 per year. Yeah, Obama is just giddy at the prospects.
The uncontrolled debt limit is the fiscal cliff folks and it is coming.
No kidding, huh? And we both know that the chances of that are 1 in 100.
Dude. Seriously. It's her bill Boehner is proposing...
"At this point I see the democrats with a super majority come November 2014. Hey, I give them this - they worked hard for it."
Puh-leez. Don't be a Freetard like the handwringing bedwetters that lost their collective sh!t after 2008, then hid under the covers before the 2010 GOP Tsunami...said it couldn't happen. Short memories make me laugh.
"Obama's no longer the problem. It's the people who allow Obama to keep acting with these tactics that's the problem."
What, his base? The barely 400K votes in 4 states that put him over the top? You're going to poop yourself over that? Grow a pair...
Barrack Hussein Lincoln?
Remember 400k is for a couple.. So it’s 200k per individual. Previous it was 200k individual/250k couple. Obama change is only on marriage penalty
he cant put two words together without saying UMMMMM>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Republicans = Goldstein (1984)
Over the past thirty years [leftists] have taken control of one of the two largest political parties in a country where winner takes all in elections and are busily working to fracture the only opposition they have by encouraging conservatives to leave the Republican Party in the hands of RINOS rather than working to take over the party apparatus as they, the Leftists, have taken over the Democrat Party.
For those who say, "Well, I'm a proud member of the Constitution Party or the Declaration Party or the Conservative Party or the Southern Principled Conservative Party of Holy Ghost Fire on the Mountain Pre-Rapture Remnant of the Real Thing Party and someday we'll be big enough to replace the Republican Party, just like the Temperance Party or the Bull Moose Party did":
Doofuses: we don't live in a parliamentary system where representation is divided proportionally between the losers!
It's winner take all, baby, and the sooner you realize that and stop wasting time fighting like cats and Baptists to multiply the number of me-so-conservative parties the sooner you'll have turned back the liberal encroachment on the existing main opposition party to their main vehicle for political power, the Democrat Party, instead of complimenting yourself on just how wonderfully more conservative your loser party is going to be than the one you deliberately abandoned to leftist takeover."Hey, I don't like these liberal bumper stickers on this fully functioning vehicle or the places its driver is taking us, right? So, I've got, like, this great plan to deal with that, 'kay? Instead of tossing the driver out on his butt and getting some more appropriate body detailing and then driving it wherever we want to go, we're going to get out at the next corner, wag our fingers really hard at the driver as he speeds off, and then from scratch build our own new most perfectly conservative vehicle and, someday, maybe, enter that into the race! And won't that glorious day be, oh, so grand?"And you think Jesus is going to say, "Well done, good and faithful servant for refusing to take back the existing opposition party and, instead, throwing your vote to something that couldn't possibly defeat a known enemy because you thought being considered a more nearly "true" conservative party than any other was more important than actually conserving and preserving the Republic against an ongoing enemy onslaught"?
My tag line :-)
ok, so just let me know what we do, NOW, because its damn near too late.
So, how goes the response from the Congress critters?
“Boehner should have been replaced long ago. Obama’s no longer the problem. It’s the people who allow Obama to keep acting with these tactics that’s the problem.
BINGO - what a great post.
So, we work our tails off in 2010 to get the house in GOP hands, then Bonehead and company waste two whole years letting Zippy and crew wreck havoc on this great nation. DEfund that wretched EPA and other departments that are doing end run around your sorry carcass to pass thousands of rules. WHERE is the President’s budget? None in THREE years. This is NOT in the constitution. We need a states rights revolution.
Bonehead, McCainiac, Romney (I never wanted to be prez), no chin McConnell, Cantor and then add in Kstreet people like Trent Lottless.... OMG we need to rid ourselves of the dem-light people.
GOP - please grab a microphone - call a presser and just read the list that is endless: EPA doing end run, Geithner and fed printing $$$ from their backsides, Da Union thugs now imbedded in White House making Da Rules, SSDI is filled with lazy peeps that have run out of unemployment bennies, food stamp numbers at all time high, etc. Need I go on? Add your own to this list. YOU OWN this, GOPe and Dems. You just let this !@#$&!@! prez run all over you and this great nation. We shall NOT give in NOR will we give up. Shame on the GOPe. Sickening, isn’t it folks, what is going on with our great country? If you don’t like it here LEAVE. But Leave the USA ALONE!
“But for right now, this country is dangling by a thread, time is running out and the only weapon we have between us and tyranny are the house republicans.”
I hate it when reality trumps my Right Wing Utopian vision....
I’ll be honest. I don’t know what to do or say at this point, and I’m not ashamed to say so.
Dude, don't think for one second that I am handwringing and bedwetting over the fate of THIS GOP in control of Congress. Just the opposite. At this point I'm not concerned the least if they lose the House in 2014. Perhaps you need to re-read my post or maybe it is YOU who is handwringing and bedwetting that this GOP is losing support from its own base.
Cheer up. Better for the democrats to own 100% of this mess.
“Given the choice between a conservative and a Communist, too many RINOs will pick the communist. That is the problem.”
Agreed. That’s how we got stuck with Mitt Trotsky and that’s why we’re about to get stuck with the Weeper of the House again.
Well, you'd have thought that the dems had won a super majority in a LANDSLIDE when you look at the performance of Speaker John Boehner.
It's not me that needs to "grow a pair".
