What drama: Bachmann, Garrett, Blackburn wait till LAST MIN to cast vote for Boehner, bring the vote from 17 defections down at final second— Robert Costa (@robertcostaNRO) January 3, 2013
Even Rush realizes it now we (conservatives) are strangers in our own land.. Soon the majority will celebrate when the Government puts a bounty on our heads....
In which century do you expect the constitution party to win the WH, or Senate or the House? Or is it that winning is not one of your requirements?
If they ever want to get any legislation they sponsor to be voted on, they needed to vote for him.
Waiting Until the Last Minute is code............
If it looked like there was going to be close to enough support to put someone else in, i.e., a last minute surprise, they held out so they could make the difference.
This is making it clear that they support Boehner only because they have to; if any bona fide conservative had went for it, they would have supported them.
IMHO, the Repub party will be replaced and conservatives are going to jump ship.
We draw ever closer to the time when Congress will be financially forced into scaling back our military and all other spending starts getting all jammed up in shortfalls of cash.
The idea of hocking Treasuries to banks via the primary dealers is soon going to start making Treasuries seem like Greek bonds.
There are many conservative parties out there that individually don’t amount to much. But, IMHO, there will be a mass exodus from the Republican party upon a triggering event and many R’s will become C’s, temporarily creating a three party system. IMHO, the R party can’t survive that, will become impotent and fade away.
The R party will not win any more political battles, IMHO. They are not really centrist or liberal, and not really conservative.
The D party is simply a coalition of scams, but the R party centrists cave in too much to be able to form a reliable coalition with C’s - the C’s have no real reason any more to support R’s.
OK! So you are in the know. You need to use a sarcasm tag because there are too many here blinded by her ‘rhetoric’.
It is, indeed. If we wait too long, there won’t be time to build momentum before the next round. And I don’t want to hear about “guaranteeing the Dems will win”. How’d that work out for us last time?
There were five maybe six House seats (several in new districts in Arizona) which went to Democrats because third party candidates took away what should have been winning Republican margins. Redistricting in states, often by Democratic legislative majorities, or ordered by liberal judges, commonly gives Democrats an upfront advantage. When these races are close and a third party takes from Republican votes, the Rats most always prevail.
John Boehner 220
Nancy Pelosi 192
Eric Cantor 3
Jim Cooper 2
Allen West 2
Colin Powell 1
Jim Jordan 1
David Walker 1
Justin Amash 1
John Dingell 1
Raul Labrador 1
John Lewis 1
Maybe if the Republicans were worthy, there wouldn't be the need for third parties.
Talk about cry babies.
“She is one of the best in Congress. “
If that’s he case based solely on her actions here and in the primaries, then you have a pretty loose definition of ‘best.’
Because those actions are demonstratively destructive to conservatism.
She hired a megaRINO to ‘run’ her campaign and tank it.
She did nothing to blunt Romney’s BS against conservative values/candidates. Those are not the actions of a conservative. They are what a GOP ringer would do.
Disagree? Explain why. Actually don’t bother. You won’t convince me or anyone else willing to objectively judge someone by their actions.
A 3rd Party vote is simply a protest vote.
I am done voting GOP.
All of the upheaval of the last two years was for naught.
Everyone has safely landed in the same spot they were two years ago.
If the players don’t change, the game won’t be any different.
The election of 2010 has now been safely nullified. The alarm has passed.
Conservatives have been relegated to bystander status and both parties could not be happier. K Street will signify its approval shortly.
And the Masters of the Universe raise their glasses in a toast to a great future for them and the elite.
Such fools these mortals be!
And they will be lied about and shunned in due time. The same treatment they gave Newt and The GOP, in general, did to Sarah.
And we wonder why Obama won his first term, and the second.
Obama's second term was any easy defeat. I didn't agree with the GOPs selection of Romney, however he was the choice, (less then 4% voter turnout for primary here). To many people fed up with the GOP either did not vote, or voted third party, it got Clinton elected. Long time republicans not turning out to vote this time got Obama elected.
Everyone complaining about who is in DC, have you done ANYTHING locally to get the right people in the party. Support your local county, and state level candidates, they are the future. Support the Constitutionalists when they run locally on the GOP ticket, maybe in a few years they will be the once in DC making the right decisions.
Screw the GOP. They haven’t been Conservative since Reagan.
How can the Rats not be happy?
Bonehead does their work, but the GOP gets the blame.
If u are a rat, what’s not to like about that.
Bonehead was already a weak leader, he is even weaker now.
Because of his weakness, the GOP will lose their house majority in 2014.
Is this the same Michele Bachmann that ran for President?
The only reason the Rats didn’t get a majority in the House in 2012, was frankly, because they didn’t want it.
That's bullsh*t. More people chose Zero...the GOP couldn't get the 'base' out for their p*ss-poor candidate. Open primaries, voter fraud, stalking horses, same old BS. The people that nominated a piece of crap GOP candidate are to blame. They own it. 100%
I am just as frustrated with big government as you are, perhaps even more. But I am not ready to give in to the democraps.... Pelosi, Reid, Obama and all their cohorts. I am 100% certain they will make things much much much worse...
Thank God Pelosi is not the speaker for next 2 years. Because then the destruction would be complete.
Read my tag line. You can’t defeat Santa. But the fight must continue as best as I can.
