Principles and spines. Why the GOP establishment doesn’t understand.
Word came out today that McConnell and the GOP establishment are hell bent on destroying a private Republican consulting firm because they had the audacity to work with the Senate Conservatives Fund. This really comes as no surprise. After all the SCF is determined to remove McConnell and his squishy friends from office. This leads us to the problem that the establishment doesn’t understand. They | Read More »
Backroom deals and lack of a spine.
It was announced today that the complete surrender of the GOP is in the works. McConnell got with Reid and gave away the farm, while Boehner is making sure that the House passes the bill with Dem votes first to prevent a filibuster from Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. If you think this wasn’t always the plan you’ve lost your mind. For those of you | Read More »
GOP stabbs you in the back again
According to the Hill the Senate Republicans want to offer a plan that would raise the debt limit, and fold completely by funding the Government for a year at Sequestration levels. Notice it says nothing about defunding Obamacare, only removing the medical device tax. Could that long with the poll numbers that make it look like the GOP is losing be the reason that the | Read More »
Is Obama squirming over sequestration?
On Jan 1st Congress and Obama made a deal that push sequestration back to March 1st. In that Obama was able to get his tax increases that he wanted on the “wealthiest Americans”, and apparently the GOP managed to screw up and paint him into a corner. That is the only thing that can explain why Obama is all of a sudden willing to do | Read More »
Does the No budget No pay bill really make a difference?

It allows Obama to continue his reckless spending until April at the earliest and only means that the Senate has to do the job that the Constitution requires them to do already. So again I ask does this really make a | Read More »

Can Conservatives win the coming debt limit and sequester fight?
I ask this in all seriousness. I know that if we had a “leadership” that was more concerned with reigning in spending and reducing the debt we could win. The problem is we don’t have that kind of leadership. True, we do have some in Congress that feel this way and have the spine to make it work, but those unfortunately do not amount to | Read More »
We allowed this to happen now deal with it.
I have been trying to figure out what I wanted this post to say for a few days. Today it struck me as to what it was that I wanted to say. I have been reading that people think that the Conservative caucus of the Republican House screwed everything up by throwing a “Tantrum” and making sure that Plan B failed. Some people believe that | Read More »
