Merely maintaining sequester cuts no GOP victory

Non-tea partying Senate Republicans insisted upon cruising to debt limit and government shutdown-showdown defeat  after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) dared prevent the raising of the white flag on their exclusive clubs floor for over 22 hours. And no amount of postmortem-spin of the sequester status quo can deny McCains and McConnells their latest longed-for losses at President Obama’s hands. George Will was right to describe the sequester | Read More » . . . → Read More: Merely maintaining sequester cuts no GOP victory . . . → Read More: Merely maintaining sequester cuts no GOP victory

Yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah

Mark Jaede’s Flashpoint editorial is straight from Democrat Talking Points Central: The House GOP should immediately pass a clean appropriations bill. It is shameful that they started this blackmail to begin with. Making government function is the first responsibility of elected officials. There is no reason to delay ACA. It is the law of the […] . . . → Read More: Yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah . . . → Read More: Yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah

Obama, Reid, Pelosi refuse to budge

Wednesday afternoon, President Obama met with leaders from the House and Senate. With the potential to reach a deal hanging over the table, President Obama, Sen. Reid and Minority Leader Pelosi took the hardline position that they’ll only accept a clean continuing resolution, aka CR. After the meeting, Speaker John Boehner made a brief statement: […] . . . → Read More: Obama, Reid, Pelosi refuse to budge . . . → Read More: Obama, Reid, Pelosi refuse to budge

Harry Reid’s latest temper tantrum

Lately, Harry Reid has thrown one temper tantrum after another. This morning, he threw another childish, mean-spirited hissy fit: “Republicans have had a very bad week. On the same day that Democrats in Congress delivered quality, affordable health insurance to tens of millions more Americans, Republicans in Congress delivered the nation a government shutdown.” “It’s […] . . . → Read More: Harry Reid’s latest temper tantrum . . . → Read More: Harry Reid’s latest temper tantrum

Affordable Care Act, exchanges, off to chaotic start

Last night, Juan Williams told Bill O’Reilly and Mary Katherine Ham that Republicans making a fuss over Obamacare were fussing about something that hadn’t failed yet. Twitchy’s pictorial provides a mountain of proof that the exchanges are failing miserably. Make that a mountain range worth of proof. Based on the tweets gathered by Twitchy thus […] . . . → Read More: Affordable Care Act, exchanges, off to chaotic start . . . → Read More: Affordable Care Act, exchanges, off to chaotic start

The revolution will not be televised – Intellectual Froglegs S2 – Ep 11

The democrats want a blank check again to spend, and are blaming the conservatives for not being willing to compromise – also accusing them of not being fiscally responsible. Of course, liberals also think that just because ObamaCare is the … Continue reading . . . → Read More: The revolution will not be televised – Intellectual Froglegs S2 – Ep 11 . . . → Read More: The revolution will not be televised – Intellectual Froglegs S2 – Ep 11

Reid refuses to negotiate, shuts down gov’t

Harry Reid is the ultimate spoiled brat. He’s refused to negotiate with House Republicans throughout the budget process. Now he’s prepared to take the final step and shut the federal government down: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will double down on Monday afternoon and again dismiss the House’s attempts to chip away at Obamacare as […] . . . → Read More: Reid refuses to negotiate, shuts down gov’t . . . → Read More: Reid refuses to negotiate, shuts down gov’t

GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down

The GOP needs a government shutdown to re-establish GUT-bone fides with the American people. Republicans should allow President Obama to shut down the government on behalf of his Big Business and government employee friends to whom he has granted exemptions, subsidies and delays. Soon after his first inaugural in 2009, President Barack Obama demanded that health care reform be passed quickly to ensure a robust recovery | Read More » . . . → Read More: GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down . . . → Read More: GOP delays Obamacare, funds government: Let Obama shut it down

Gov’t shutdown will be Democrats’ fault

Despite the Democrats’ spin otherwise, the looming government shutdown will be their fault. Tonight, Republicans voted to keep the government open while attaching a provision that would delay the start of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate. Here’s the White House’s response: The White House on Saturday said President Obama would veto the House GOP’s […] . . . → Read More: Gov’t shutdown will be Democrats’ fault . . . → Read More: Gov’t shutdown will be Democrats’ fault

Intelligent Krauthammer’s debt limit-showdown strategy also a Cruz-like cul-de-sac

Any Republican strategy to force Obama and the Democrats to compromise on Obamacare, taxes, spending or even the Keystone XL pipeline in a continuing budget resolution or bill to raise the debt ceiling inevitably leads to a Cruz-like government shutdown cul-de-sac. Charles Krauthammer has known this since he worked for Vice President Walter Mondale in the late 1970s and when he watched President Reagan escape | Read More » . . . → Read More: Intelligent Krauthammer’s debt limit-showdown strategy also a Cruz-like cul-de-sac . . . → Read More: Intelligent Krauthammer’s debt limit-showdown strategy also a Cruz-like cul-de-sac

Cruz cures Krauthammer of cul-de-sac phobia?

For weeks, Charles Krauthammer has trashed the effort led by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to defund Obamacare as a “cul-de-sac” strategy because it would inevitably end in a government shutdown-showdown, that Republicans “just can’t” win. Yet, last night he endorsed the notion of conditioning a hike in the debt limit or a continuing budget resolution on either subjecting federal employees, including congressmen and their staffs, to Obamacare | Read More » . . . → Read More: Cruz cures Krauthammer of cul-de-sac phobia? . . . → Read More: Cruz cures Krauthammer of cul-de-sac phobia?

President Obama, Pelosi, Carney & government responsibility

I was stunned when I read this article. Specifically, I was stunned by Jay Carney’s blather: The White House on Monday called GOP efforts to defund Obamacare and win more spending cuts at the risk of a government shutdown or default “utterly irresponsible” and warned the president would not negotiate with Republicans. “Congress needs to […] . . . → Read More: President Obama, Pelosi, Carney & government responsibility . . . → Read More: President Obama, Pelosi, Carney & government responsibility

Pelosi, Hoyer show how to play bad hand poorly

This video is a how-to instructional on how to play a bad hand poorly: Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com First, it’s amazing how shrill the Democrats are.

Repealing the PPACA

Thanks to John Hinderaker’s post about the fight over the PPACA, I can now see the GOP winning this fight. Here’s what John said that makes sense: The Senate will pass a continuing resolution that includes Obamacare. At that point, after a little grandstanding, the Republican House will graciously accept the Senate resolution in order […] . . . → Read More: Repealing the PPACA . . . → Read More: Repealing the PPACA
