John Boehner is like a .25 caliber bullet… all bang, no blood.
Real conservatives shook their heads when this mealy-mouthed, GOP ruling class functionary rose to Speaker simply because it was “his turn.”
The GOP has a rich history of “his turn” mediocrity as an ineffective second party well satisfied with settleting the Silver Medal; this business as usual has given us Dole, McCain, Dewey, Hoover, Landon, Wilkie and I would also include the senior Mr. Bush.
I actually belive that most of these repub hacks prefer to be out of power. The can sit behind their desks, collect a paycheck while losing day after day after day… shrug their shoulders and say, “What can we do, we’re in the minority.”
It is an easy job… for losers.
I thought that after the worst debacle to descend on the nation after WWII–Barack Hussein Obama’s election–it would be different; any fool saw this Manchurian Candidate coming; hell, he he even promised to “fundamental change” America.
What we are now witnessing is “Republicans Unmasked” where even the so-called “conservatives” reveal themselves to be nothing more than go-along to get-alongs, no different from their endless predecessors.
Case-in-point: Right wing media darling Allen West turns out to be just one more politician voting you into greater debt in exchange for a cake federal job. Eric Cantor… what ever happened to the “Cantor plan” which many thought would form a united party and an fiscal spike aimed at the heart of the Obama Regime?
The reality of the 2010 election is not that the GOP gained 63 seats in the House which recaptured the majority resulting in the the largest House turn-around in my life; in the main it was just the election of a handful of conservative patriots who are standing in the breach, keeping faith with Real Americans who supported them.
The GOP’s Profiles in Courage is not much more than a pamphlet.
If this coming election was the average, run of the mill November battle, we could say “well, once step at a time” and “wait till next year.” Unfortunately, it is nothing of the sort.
Economically we are one foot in the quicksand and the other on a banana peel.
Here’s the bottom line… we need to have an historic conservative victory every two years until the Congress, the president and the Supreme Court are back to working for us and not as grand members of the landed aristocracy. This means we primary each and every one of the SOBS until they do as we say or look for a real job.
In their wisdom, the Founders set minimal criteria for election to Congress and the presidency, basically it’s simply age and citizenship. But over the last 100 years Americans have been brainwashed with the scam that at a minimum America’s leaders have to be rich, an attorney, a career politician, and Harvard/Yale grads.
Yet the election of Barack Obama and Al Franken (just to name a couple) proves anyone, millions of Americans can be a president or member of congress. For much of our history we have been ruled by liars (Obama), criminals (take your pick), perverts, plagiarist Obama, McInnis), sex addicts (Clinton, et al), idiots (Babs Boxer), fools (Joe Biden), thieves (Jefferson/Rangel), communists (Obama, Sanders), serial womanizers (don’t have space), alcoholics (Boehner and too many others for this limited space), drug addicts (JFK, and God know who else), and fake military veterans, all of whom have absolutely no concern for America and even less for Americans.
And after we elect them, they cater to the leeches of our society who gladly trade their votes for 99 weeks of unemployment, food stamps, free school lunches (and breakfasts and dinners), free health care, free housing, free education. This has gone on since the 1930s and now virtually half of the US force pays no federal income tax tax, leaving Real Americans to pay for everything, for everyone.
Time is no longer running out… we’re in sudden-death and even “our” team is the third-string.
