So, Where Do We Go From Here?
If the passage of the horrible budget compromise sellout fiasco hasn’t got your goat, nothing will. I don’t know how the ‘so called’ Republican leadership is going to be able to lead the party, having lost the respect of the very people who put them in office. If I didn’t know better, I’d be inclined to think that the Republicans were in cahoots with the | Read More »
Washington – Government In A Bubble.
I’m convinced that Washington DC is, as we have long suspected, not in the same time line as the rest of us. Some, like me, would tend to say that Washington is existing in another universe altogether. I’ve been waiting for an adult or two to show up. With the exception of twenty four Tea-Party Patriot Representatives who didn’t fold, regardless of the pressure placed | Read More »
Such A Deal As There Never Was.
Washington and the beltway are in an ecstasy of self-congratulation. What we, as Patriots, are going to do about this travesty, this multiplicity of prevarication foisted on us by our own leadership, has yet to be seen, but if the mass of melted copper that used to comprise the Capitol’s phone systems is any indication, the proverbial ‘merde’ is about to hit the fan. Most | Read More »
Is It A Sell – Boehner – Out – McConnell – Sell – Cantor – Out – Coburn – Sell – Jordan – Out?
Once upon an election, we entrusted the Republican leadership with guiding our nation away from the yawning abyss that Barack Obama has built. I’ve been watching the incredible circus which has characterized the debt ceiling and ‘spending cut’ negotiations so far. It’s incredible to watch all of these RINO sellouts fall all over themselves to give ObaMao and his lackeys everything they want. What is | Read More »
Republicans Have This One Last Chance.
It’s really too bad. All it would have taken was one Republican leader to step up and throw this whole mess back in Barack Hussein Obama’s face, where it belonged in the first place. Just one leader with some testosterone. Instead, we get the ‘lets make a deal’ crew all over again. We know that Congress is being bombarded by deluges of angry patriots, voicing | Read More »
Incredibly Inept Or Incredibly Wimpy? Who’s Leading Who?
Something just isn’t right with our vaunted Republican leadership… with the exception of a few timid forays into the morass that is the DeMarxist fiscal nightmare… you’d never know that we were being governed by the Conservative juggernaut that caused the greatest political upset in decades. Somebody ought to tell Mr Boehner that tweeting and twittering isn’t going to get it. You can’t run this | Read More »
Trump… The Patriot Favorite?
There’s one thing for sure… the Tea Party patriots are responding to what Donald Trump is saying in a big way. Trump is feisty, decisive, not a bit afraid of a fight, and extremely knowledgeable about money. And that’s what it’s all about. A total political outsider who tells it like it is and is well aware of the nature of the crisis we’re in. | Read More »
Excuse My Skepticism.
As a recovering Republican, I’ve seen the best the party has to offer… specifically the Reagan years which are, for the conservative, the benchmark against which we measure those who would claim the mantle. For decades this has been the party establishment’s prerogative. They picked the candidate. In all their hidebound, inarticulate, muddle-headed wisdom, time after time they picked the wrong people at just exactly | Read More »
We Are A Nation In Denial.
Maybe it’s something that they’ve been slipping into the water… maybe it’s in those cross-hatched contrails we keep seeing… but that’s a conspiracy theory for another day. I hear a lot of blather about how the the Tea Party Patriot movement has fired its bolt and may now retire to the obscurity that the lame stream media has been working so diligently to convince us | Read More »
My Tempestuous Teapot Boileth Over.
It has taken us two days to catch up with the comments we received from our article, ‘To Primary Or Not To Primary.’ This, more than any argument anyone can come up with, has indicated to me that the mood out there is every bit as charged as I thought it was. Reps. Jim Jordan and Tim Huelskamp said they would vote against the spending | Read More »
To Primary Or Not To Primary.
It should be apparent to even the mildest-mannered, laid-back conservative that things just aren’t working the way they should if we had Congressional leadership. John Boehner at CPAC, February 10th, 2011. What do I mean? We have outstanding leadership, don’t we? Well, we thought we did anyway. I’ve been wary of John Boehner since he was on the campaign trail. He made all the right | Read More »
Is Your Word Just Another Word?
Do we truly mean something when we say it? Do we believe in honor, in our yes being yes and our no being no? It’s one thing to give a caveat or when you make a proclaimation or statement; it’s something more weighty when you say, “I will…” To be sure, no one is perfect, and daily we all say things we either don’t follow | Read More »

Republicans Had Best Have A Compelling Message.
Despite the DeMarxists headlong rush to oblivion in November, we cannot count on our Republican leadership not to blow it. They need to show something that has been sadly missing thus far, in my opinion… leadership. To date, they’ve failed in the first big test of whether they have the intestinal fortitude to be the majority in 2011. Elena Kagan should have been stonewalled out | Read More »
Americans United Run Completely False Ad: No is not an option
A new AFSCME/Americans United Ad: No is not an option is set to run on national cable stations and in spot markets in Washington DC. The ad falsely accuses the Republican Leadership in the House and Senate of not wanting any form of stimulus and recovery package. This is patently untrue “Just saying no” to a bad bill authored by partisan Democrats, overflowing with pork, | Read More »
Toss ‘em into the nearest volcano…
With a hat tip to the smartest guys around, Powerline…Deroy Murdoch comments on where we are, how we got there and what we need to do first in his latest NRO column…I won’t bother with suspense to get to his money quote…Once the GOP’s detritus is dislodged, rebuilding can begin. **The best way Republicans can redeem themselves is to ask daily: “What would Reagan do?”**
