Two cheers for Mitch McConnell
C’mon, let’s be honest… back in January and February, you all thought (I did too) that Obamacare would pass months ago. You all thought (I did too) that Snowe and Collins and maybe more would vote for it. It’s easy for those who have never had their name on the door to chide and scold, to second guess and to quarterback from the easy chair. But let’s | Read More »

Newt, Steele… Sadly Out Of Touch With Mainstream Conservatives.
Newt Gingrich, who had staunchly defended Dede Scozzafava’s bid for Representative of New York’s 23rd District, seems to be unaware of the reality which has been manifesting itself all over the country with regards to the leadership of the the Republican party, which is this: THERE ISN’T ANY. We thought we sent that message loud and clear during the 2008 Presidential race which brought the | Read More »
Democrats Call Foul on Republican Objection to ‘Death Panels’
Democratic health care strategists are calling foul today on GOP officials John Boehner, Thaddeus McCotter, Johnny Isakson, and Chuck Grassley, claiming the Republican Party leaders are guilty of partisan obstructionism of the worst kind – demagoging the same end-of-life provisions, the now-famous “death panels,” they supported in the 2003 Medicare prescription drug bill. “So either Republicans were for death panels in 2003 before turning against | Read More »

Some Advice for John Boehner
John Boehner, please shut up! In one week, he has set back the Republican Party about six months. While the Democrats have their fair share of infighting ging on, he should just sit back and enjoy the view. Two incidents by Boehner this past week are illustrative of my call to just be quiet. First, in a speech, he referred to fiscally conservative southern Democrats | Read More »
[BREAKING] Boehner to House GOP: Vote against the stimulus.
Or, as Heritage put it, “The Pelosi-Reid-Obama Debt Plan”. Anyway, Politico reports: President Barack Obama is coming to the Capitol this afternoon to curry favor with congressional Republicans. But it appears GOP leaders have already made up their minds to oppose his $825 billion stimulus plan. House Republican Leader John A. Boehner and his No. 2, Whip Eric Cantor, told their rank-and-file members Tuesday morning | Read More »

Who’s Number One?
Chuck Muth spreads this bit of gossip around: Indeed, word coming out of Washington this week indicates Republicans are about to commit yet another act of political insanity by electing Boehner once again as House Minority Leader. But don’t blame all conservatives in the House for this insanity. It appears it may be only ONE conservative responsible for this pending disaster – just like it | Read More »
200 Votes For A New Majority
Dovetailing on my other diary about how to win the rhetorical battle with the Democrats over the Financial Crisis, I want to explain a strategy for winning back the House. Keep in mind, the Democrats hold the exact same number of seats we held in 2006, and if we play our cards right the GOP could regain the majority because of this Bailout. One of | Read More »
Open Letter to House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) et al.
Dear Congressman Boehner, My sincere thanks to you and the rest of the House Republicans who have resisted efforts by Speaker Pelosi to squelch the long overdue and much needed debate about America’s current and future energy needs. Thanks to your collective efforts, the day of that debate is drawing near. It will have been nearly two months since you began your quest to open | Read More »

Boehner to supposedly pro-drilling House Democrats: Oh, so you’re on *our* side, now?
Hey, non scriptus, non est, baby: “My message to Democratic lawmakers is this: if you’re really for increased American energy production, then prove it by putting it in writing. Sign the discharge petitions House Republicans are circulating that will force votes on energy legislation Speaker Pelosi refuses to bring to the floor. And sign onto the American Energy Act, our ‘all of the above’ plan | Read More »
Rep Kenny Marchant (TX 24) on Energy: Hear, Hear!

I am posting Rep Marchant’s letter in its entirety. Let’s Have a Vote on Real Energy Solutions As many of you have heard, the House Republican Caucus has taken over the empty House chamber in protest of Democratic House Speaker | Read More »
The Hubris of Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats
Serious Mayhem: A Conservative Policy Arena Yesterday the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats bailed on the American people in refusing to commit to any new energy policies. Our leaders have left Washington for a long summer break while the American people suffer with high gas and diesel prices. Not a single Republican voted to close House business without an energy plan | Read More »
