Hold the line!
There are good reasons for holding the line. 1. We have to cut spending, and we need to cut it now. Not ten years from now. A promise from Washington to do something in ten years is a lie. A balanced budget amendment is being sold with the same rhetoric that the borrowing limit was sold. To force Congress to be responsible. The spending cap | Read More »
Henry Clay, Stephen Douglas would have understood McConnell
Henry Clay and Stephen Douglas crafted and sponsored what became known as the Missouri compromise. It was greeted with relief, if dissatisfaction by both sides because it reduced sectional conflict for four years. Note, it did not in the end prevent war between the states. Comprimising on principles never works. Perhaps Mitch McConnell is only looking for one more election. What Obama is doing is | Read More »
Rule (9): The threat is worse then the thing itself.
This is a fundamental underpinning to successful organizing. The limit to any attack is stop short before people realize that the threat was bogus. Obama understands this. That is why he is panicking. His threat to default on the interest, social security and on military pay is only a threat, one that he probably won’t survive. And now that the time to make good on | Read More »
Rule 6: (Tactics your base enjoy) Deny them funds to use against us!
The dead beat in chief, Obama set about fundamentally changing the country. This was precisely his rallying call less than a week before the 2008 elections. Pelosi and Reed knew what that meant. They used the power of their two thirds majority in both houses to force through legislation that was hated and damaging. Worse, they rubbed the noses of the American people in the | Read More »
Rule 5 (Ridicule) Obama the Dead Beat in Chief
Speaker Boehner, the definition of a dead beat is someone who needs to borrow money to pay interest on the money he borrowed and spent, and uses the threat of not paying to extort more loans. This is Obama’s biggest threat, and the easiest to ridicule. America has given too much to a dead beat spendthrift and won’t stand for him not paying the bills. | Read More »
Dear Barry, you have a $2.2 Trillion allowance.
Stop acting like a petulant child. We give you a 2.2 trillion dollar allowance and you spend 4 trillion instead. This is no way to manage money. If you want a bigger allowance, prove you can manage what we give you now. This temper tantrum isn’t becoming. We aren’t going to be swayed to change our mines until you show some maturity and the ability | Read More »
Newt Gingrich: Wrong person, right idea
“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering,” Gingrich said, calling the plan “too big a jump” for the country. “I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.” Newt Gingrich on Meet the Press I am not sure professor Gingrich fully understands Ryan’s plan, | Read More »
Tea Party message for the college campus organizer
I read that Obama is focusing on a summer organizer program and wants “stop acting like an incumbent”. Of course if I had his record that would be my plan too. So where are the Republicans? The republican leadership is really starting to get on my nerves. They either do not get it, or they don’t care. If you wonder why the American people do | Read More »
First know your opponent, second understand his tactics
It seems to me that too many people, especially pundits are unwilling or unable to put Barack Obama into perspective. Let me make that simple Barack Obama is a community organizer. And since that defines his being lets review what makes a Community Organizer, going directly to the source. Saul Alinsky’s rules for radicals. Alinsky defines a series of rules for power. Alinsky’s Power Tactics: | Read More »
