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 »
How many Republicans have a spine?
The House of Representatives is going to debate and vote on the “stimulus package”. We need to make sure that our representatives on the Republican side oppose the measure. Our conference needs to make sure that the Democrats retain all the responsibility for this debacle. If the media isn’t going to spread the pork-barrel nature of this bill, we need to have ads up on television. I think Rush | 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 »
Bi-partisanship means Democrats giving in on something.
Let’s be honest, the whole stimulus debate is growing old from my standpoint. All we hear is that Obama is a post-partisan leader and Republicans are duty bound to help him pass his “stimulus package.” But what exactly are the Republicans getting from the Democrats? Are we getting a leaner more efficient government? Are we really auditing all the social programs of the country to | Read More »
Republican leaders should listen to Rush!
I was taken aback that the new president had the gall to bring Rush into the argument over the “Stimulus Plan” with Republican leaders. I think they would be better off listening to Rush than Obama. I mean, how many more of the so-called moderate Republicans are left to help Obama? Not that many. We should really fight him tooth and nail. He wants a | Read More »
True conservative Republicans should put the brakes on the Stimulus plan
This whole fast moving freight train of an economic stimulus plan should be resisted for many reasons. Certainly many of which have been elucidated by the members of this very informative blog. However, we should not merely cave to the Democrats for another important reason. As the opposition, with a reduced minority, we should see to it that the committees of jurisdiction get a chance to score | 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 »
