House GOP to Obama: Let's Do a 'Year of Action' Together

CAMBRIDGE, Maryland--House Republicans responding to President Obama's State of the Union vow to move forward on a “year of action” with or without Congress say they agree and want to partner with him.

“We heard the president say this should be a year of action and that is our goal. We join the president in this effort to make this a year of action,” GOP Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers told reporters here.

The top four House Republicans also sent Obama a letter this morning outlining areas of agreement where the two can collaborate.

The letter notes, “Of course, under our Constitution, most action requires the Congress and the President to work together.”

The letter does not include any language on immigration, though a press conference was consumed with questions from reporters on the topic. Speaker John Boehner continued his silence on forthcoming immigration “principles,” saying he needs to discuss the issue with the Republican conference.

Idiots.

Cooperating with the POTUS to work-around the constitution will not make the media stop thinking of you as racist.

How about doing something really different, GOP, and offer the American people a real alternative to socialism?

I agree, let’s have a “Year of Action” by the US House of Representatives!

Lemme see now, - - - ?

Why not start by naming Four Special Prosecuters for each of the Major Obama Scandals?

The Leftstream Media could their “I had no idea that Obama was so evil!” stories.

And FOX News could say “We told you so!”

Ponder this:

Egypt’s Morsi and our Democrat’s Obama have the same Muslim Brotherhood mentality, and thus both men are opposed to the Common Law basis of American Culture.

The American-based logic system falls on the deaf ears of both men.

Both men have a “Big Picture” mentality of destroying their existing societies in order to establish their version of the Muslim Brotherhood System of governance.

Their responses during and after the 2012 Benghazi Murders were the most revealing insights into their shared Muslim Brotherhood values.

Neither Morsi or Obama can be reasoned with by their countrymen. Their Muslim Brotherhood Mentality prevents them from doing so.

Any opposition to their plans is used by them to strengthen their conviction that their plans are correct.

Egypt has figured all this is out, when will America do the same?

GOPe would endorse a democrat for office before they’d endorse a conservative.

Let that sink in for a minute.

I forgot one thing: Correction “- - - Media could TELEVISE their - - - “; and you forgot that Journalists love to make money from their “I knew it all along” books.

Thus, they can claim to be loyal to a fault to the sanctity of the First Obamanation Regime, AND really smart for knowing all about Barry’s Boo-Boos.

The GOP is splitting before our eyes. The kenyan turned up the heat and whipped the GOP leadership.

Progressive Republicans are now siding with Dems on the great issues of our time. Conservatives are losing interest in voting for back stabbing careerist RINOs and will no longer support them.

It’s hard to see the GOP continuing to be viable. There just is no common set of values among conservatives and progressive wing of the GOP.

I know this kind of rhetoric is baffling, but it is not sincere....just as if Obama had said the same thing.

The House GOP puts that noise out KNOWING it is mere PR for the LIVs.

This shouldn’t be a surprise. The GOP has been colluding with the Dems regarding the IRS assault on conservatives, busting the sequestor, etc. etc.

I wonder what else is on the bipartisan menu for 2014? Amnesty? Obamacare fix? Internet tax?

This is part of the central plank of the GOP 2014 strategy. Be nice to the Dems and tip toe to the election. Just a more extreme version of their 2012 strategy. They seem to have forgotten how it worked out last time.

Have Republicans lost their minds?!!!! — if they ever had any!

What are they trying to do, save Obama from the midterm bloodbath his party would get, if the GOP would run against him not “partner with him”. You might as well partner with a viper, they are more trustworthy.

So the GOP has decided to die then.

Yes, they would, and that's the whole problem with the Fantasy Football approach to the 2016 primaries so many here are bought in to.

Suppose it comes down to Cruz or [insert your fave here] and Christie [or Jeb]. Further suppose that, with endless effort and superb coordination, we win in June 2016 at a divided convention.

Does anyone here doubt, doubt FOR A SECOND, that the next day Christie (or Jeb) would endorse Hillary? Does anyone doubt FOR A SECOND that if Hillary looked weak in the polls that she would choose Christie (or Jeb) as VP on a "national unity" ticket to turn back the racist, homophobic Faux News candidacy of Cruz [or Palin, or Mike Lee]?

That's why we need a split. Because even if we win the GOPe game, playing by the GOPe rules, we lose.

The only worthwhile "action" the House GOP could inact would be to IMPEACH THE SORRY BASTARD IN THE WHITE HOUSE EACH WEEK, each and every week, from now until the end of his presidency.

He has given plenty of ammunition to do this on a different count each week. Do so and force the Senate to take up the impeachment articles and vote on them.

This President has revealed himself to be a phony, fraud, and a flim-flam man with each passing day as heu pathetically tries to avoid the accountability and consequences of his own actions. He has betrayed America's trust, he has lied, misled, falsely accused, been involved with programs that have caused the death and injury of many Americans, and tried in vain to explain all of this as some kind of "phony," attack, witch hunt, or vendetta against him.

Well, in reality the only vendetta is his own vendetta against America and its traditional values and its very Constitution, since the day he set foot in the White House and long before.

President Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro, it is you, who are the phony here, you and those abetting and supporting the atrocious actions by you and your sick administration.

“We heard the president say this should be a year of action and that is our goal. We join the president in this effort to make this a year of action,” GOP Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers told reporters here.

In microcosm, this obscure quote illustrates everything that is wrong with the republican establishment. If this woman and her colleagues were serious about taking a strong part in governing, she would have said this:

" We are glad to note that the president has chosen at last to join us in taking constructive action to pare back the burdens of bureaucracy and corruption in the federal government. We will watch with expectation to see whether he lives up to his stated intentions and joins us in bipartisan corrective actions."
