Sequestration could be the liberal’s biggest fear.
I think we as conservatives should welcome the cuts coming in sequestration. I think the tilting at windmills and the hyperventilation by the media types is all ginned up. Do they really think that the government is going to stop because of a few meager cuts? Do they really think that the government will ever stop intruding into our lives because of a few insignificant | Read More »
Serious Question: Why shouldn’t we go off the fiscal cliff?
I know this sounds like apostasy, but as someone who was dubious about all the happy talk coming from Conservatism, Inc. over the past couple months, I feel like we should look at this. I know the Bush tax cuts are important, but what about the spending cuts as well? Obama will never extend the Bush tax cuts now anyway, so why go down that | Read More »
In Moe Lane’s Words: More evidence of DOOM!
The Democratic leadership in the house just lost a motion to recommit in the House of Representatives. That is big. The House leadership, in order to do anything over the next eight to ten weeks will need control over their majority. They got the motion to restrict porn on government computers, and cut spending in the Science Authorization bill, down to FY 2010 levels. This | Read More »
This is the question I ask to my Democratic friends. If the government is going to give you healthcare, and make sure that the unemployed don’t have to pay for it, then why would we work for a living? I mean if I can get healthcare, and some welfare benefits, I’ll quit my job and live off the dole! That is the reason why European | Read More »
The time has come to offer the Republican Alternative on Healthcare
With the Democrats flailing about wildly, the GOP needs to offer a coherent plan in the healthcare debate. I know that many on this site will say that we have one, but I think we need to make it apparent with advertisements detailing what we want. With talk of splitting the healthcare bill in two pieces, the GOP needs to take the lead on the | Read More »
Pay-go A way to connect to moderates
I know this post will probably get me a bunch of hate mail on this site. And I myself think it is used mostly as a stunt. But I do think that insistance on hard pay-go rules this session of congress has the ability to fork apart the so-called “Blue Dogs” from the rest of the left of the Democratic party in the congress. I | Read More »
Republicans need to offer a real alternative.
As we sit here, we see that the Senate Democrats are preparing to pass a “stimulus” bill. They are giving bare minimum concessions to the so-called fiscal conservatives in their own party, and passing a socialist revision of the American way of life. The Republicans have been smart attacking the more egregious parts of the bill, but have been less forthright in offering a true | Read More »
Where is the media outrage?
The Senate of the United States has just confirmed an admitted Tax Cheat to be the head of all the money in this country. Amazing. Where is the media outrage? Imagine the previous Republican nominating a tax felon? We’d get crucified. Why did our Senators stand by and let this happen? The moral blight on the administration by employing a known lawbreaker is beyond understanding. We should be | Read More »
Where’s the fighting spirit?
I hope Obama’s targeting of Rush will make Republicans stiffen their collective spine. At this point from reading the RedState blogs and posts, I have come to the conclusion that the majority of people that pay attention to the political system are so beleaguered by the current state of affairs that they would enjoy just a little fight from the party right now. I hear | Read More »
A little disheartening
I have recently read an article by former Senator Rick Santorum about John McCain being a secret weapon for the Democrats. I think this story really has me flummoxed. I know that Senator McCain is a decent man, but the prospect of his collaboration with Obama on healthcare and other issues is hopefully false. I hope that Rick wrote this piece to warn of a | Read More »
I think Obama has all the characteristics
of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, the bad ones. You mean to tell me that the greatest transition team in modern memory would not understand that their nominee for Treasury Sectretary had not paid any taxes? And for the press to sit there and allow this man to skate by with a “eh, it’s just an oversight?” is appalling. We need to beat this drumbeat | Read More »
Right now we need a Newt or a Tom DeLay…
Really, the Republican party would be better off if a Republican like Newt or Delay were in charge. We have essentially vindicated John Boehner’s “sterling” run of leadership by letting him lead us when we need real leaders. We need people who thrive on political combat, and I don’t know if we have that now. We need to fight them every step of the way. | Read More »
