    Okay, I’m confused. I watched the news conference and he said he would meet with Boehner next week????????????????

  • ★FALCON★

    Is the dog flying on his own plane this year?

  • ★FALCON★

    @ GOP – Obama will be back on Wednesday to further the collapse of the country.

    Obama is likely to have a short trip this year; aides said he is scheduled to return Wednesday, a day after Christmas, to resume discussions with congressional leaders on how to avert the fiscal cliff.

    All they do when they meet is to laugh at the way the idiot citizenry fall for these dog and pony shows every time. Boehner is a disgrace and needs to be removed as Speaker so a true leader can be assigned. Remember, the Speaker need not be an elected member of the House.

  • So… our current President taught Alinski, our current Sec of State wrote a thesis on Alinkski, and our new Sec of State called his fellow veterans “Barbarians”. What an awesome, American-loving crew!

    Yes, Boehner needs to be replaced.

    I believe Rep Darrell Issa should be a contender.

    I watched him give his little speech jabbing Repubs, thinking what you said the entire time. Away he goes on vacation but must shake his finger and demand that Congress stay and work. We use to call that gall.

    I stay so outraged between Obama, Poop Scoopers and Elected Voices that it is a real tossup as to who should be my rant of the day. Been staying quiet but between McCain’s good buddy Kerry and Boehner, I give up. Listened to McCain give an interview the other night where he said absolutely we did not get any info from all that torture. You do know that Bush needs to thank McCain for branding not only him but the USA as torturers. Dems loved him until he ran.

    Kerry? Might as well make it a joint appointment and spread the duties between Fonda and Kerry. McCain loves Kerry. Regardless of what he says, he almost…..almost ran as his VP. He needs to retire like 12 years ago. Just go. You do one thing very good and then stab a half dozen. Just go.

    Boehner. I call them ELECTED voices. They manage to do The Silence better than Scoopers. They allowed the Scoopers and Dems to brand this economy as Bush’s. I spit when they sit there and not only allow it, but some nod their heads. Spit. Spit. Spit.

    I have been ranting about our ELECTED voices since they managed to lose 2006. Yep, those wimps lost it. Not Bush. All through last year, I ranted that we need leadership.

    VOTE BOEHNER OUT. No, do not elect Cantor. He is wrong also. Find a VOICE ready to fight. Vote Newt. He could not hold it together for President but he knows this office. He could not possibly be worse than what we have suffered from 2006. Give me DeLay.

    I read it is possible. Do it. I vote Newt. I vote West. I vote a total stranger off the street as long as they have a VOICE that sounds like flyover America. I have grown to dislike our leadership. Big Time.

    Give me someone that will stand up and shout that Obama is going on vacation.

    Well, that little jaunt will easily add an extra million or two to the $4 million price tag for the trip.

    The sole problem with removing Boehner is that by the time the opportunity comes up, January 2013 when the new session of Congress starts and the Speakership is voted upon, the fiscal cliff crisis has already passed. Either Crying Johnny gives Barry all he is demanding to wreck havoc on Free Market Capitalism or the economy has been thrown off the edge and in free fall from the largest tax increases ever. Removing Boehner will only be a “close the barn door after all the livestock has been stolen” situation.

    Mind you, I am by NO stretch of the imagination suggesting Boehner should be retained, but whoever gets the Speakership must understand that “business as usual” bipartisan give-and-take era is over. That person will be walking into a situation that everything they do (and don’t do) will be treated as treason, Un-American and hyper-extreme by the Left and the Dems.

    Can you imagine – just imagine – the feeding frenzy if Bush did this – not to mention that he would be pulverized. I want just ONE Obamabot idiot to defend this, just one.

  • paul52

    Seat the new Congress…. then Repubs elect a NEW Speaker. Bye-bye , Boehner. Agree with “owl”… how about Gingrich? Dingy Harry would just love it.

  • shadow

    Actually he told them to enjoy their Holiday, and to return on Wednesday ready to work.

  • Makes sense. Adults usually tell the children to leave them alone when the have important things to do. You know, send them outside or something.

    Just imagine what the Obama family are thinking. They are going on a vacation for three weeks paid for on the taxpayer dime that no longer even exists – it is paid for on new debt and/or on hyperinflation yet to come. The whole country is facing a financial crisis, but they still go on a paid vacation. They really think they are above the American people; they think of the American people as below them. This is really so disgusting. The British Royal Family during war times pitched in and were intent on suffering along with their people, but the Obama’s are too good for that. Obama and his vacations say it all about the man and his venomous snake of a wife.

    ht: 100 Percent FED Up

    Examiner: “A new study from the widely respected National Bureau of Economic Research released this week has confirmed beyond question that the left’s race-bait…ing attacks on the housing market (the Community Reinvestment Act–enacted under Carter, made shockingly more aggressive under Clinton) is directly responsible for imploding the housing market and destroying the economy.

    Again, let’s review:

    -President Bush went to Congress repeatedly for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). Democrats continuously ignored him, shut down his proposals along party lines and continued raiding the institutions for campaign contributions on their way down.”

    New study confirms economy was destroyed by Democrat policies

    [-Even The New York Times admitted that there is “little evidence” of any connection between the “Republican” deregulation measures Obama blames, like the Gramm-Bleach-Liley Act (signed into law by a Democrat), and the collapse of the housing market.

    But non-Fox media have spent years deliberately and relentlessly inoculating people against the facts, training them to mindlessly blame Bush for being in charge when Democrat policies destroyed the economy. So here we sit, to this day, still watching Obama excuse and shrug off endless economic failures, illegal government takeovers and utter national bankruptcy with zero accountability.]

    Déjà Vu: Wm. F. Buckley on the Institute for Policy Studies

    [The “only difference worth noting between” the now-defunct Liberty Lobby and Institute for Policy Studies, the late William F. Buckley Jr., founder of the National Review, wrote May 3, 1981, in the Mobile Register, is that the “IPS people tend to be more literate, more erudite. They’re not as literate or erudite as Lenin or Trotsky, but they are as despicable, nothwithstanding which dozens upon dozens of Washington bureaucrats and congressional aides associate with the IPS, and such senators as Mark Hatfield and journals as The New Republic send valentines to the IPS.”

    The late senator from Oregon, Mark O. Hatfield, was well-known as a Republican “champion of liberal causes” — for 30 years.

    So little has changed. The evidence of liberal Democrat and Republican connections with the America-hating pro-communist IPS has been there for many decades.

    Buckley was prescient:

    “The outgoing head of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which distributes a cool $100 million of federal money to scholars bent on studying this or that, refers to Marcus Raskin, the dominant figure at IPS, as ‘America’s most important intellectual.’ (If this were true, then we’d be in such condition in America as Germany was at a time when one might, in all truth say, that Goebbels was Germany’s most important publicist.)”

    Those among you who might be history-challenged may not know that Joseph Goebbels was “one of Adolf Hitler’s closest associates and most devout followers, … known for his zealous orations and anti-Semitism.”

    America has its equivalent of Goebbels today — except that it has multiplied into an army. It’s called the in-the-tank “mainstream media”, JournoList, progressive bloggers, Organizing for America, and the rest of the White House echo chamber, replete with in-house and contracted public relations “truth tellers”.

    Hoocoodanode? Anyone paying the least bit of attention.]

    Dead serious about getting someone like Newt.

    He at least has ideas, even if some are crazy. He loves to use his mouth. I believe he could actually get the message as to what we want. I believe he would have NOTHING to lose and go after them tooth and nail. I can’t think of anyone else that would be as capable of shutting it all down for Obama.

    Obama Calls for Limited Tax Deal to Avoid Fiscal Cliff

    President Obama today called on Congress to reach a deal that would raise taxes without including wide ranging spending cuts, saying Republicans must pass what they agree with Democrats on – protecting the middle class from having its tax rates increase.

    “There is absolutely no reason – none – not to protect (middle class) Americans from a tax hike,” Obama said during a hastily called appearance in the White House briefing room. “At the very least, let’s agree now on what we already agree on.”

    Obama said lawmakers should relax for now, but return to Washington immediately once a deal is struck.

    “Everybody can cool off – everybody can drink some eggnog, have some Christmas cookies, sing some Christmas carols,” Obama said.

    However, reaching a deal that raises taxes on the wealthy would harm the economy, in the view of Republicans, and eliminate the leverage Republicans have to force large cuts in entitlement spending.

    Obama’s move suggests he is upping the ante and will press the House to agree to legislation that raises taxes on those who make more than $250,000 per year, even though Republicans Thursday balked at a bill that would set the threshold at $1 million. Obama seems to be strategizing that he can either pick off some Republican lawmakers for the Democratic plan or have the country blame House Republicans if the nation goes over the fiscal cliff.

    Obama said extensions of unemployment benefits should be part of the package.

    Flashback: Clinton Requests $60 Million to Put Cops in Schools

    [The media also doesn’t care how wildly hypocritical they look.

    In their zeal to rampage this left-wing agenda, the media has apparently forgotten that back in 2000, on the one-year anniversary of the Columbine shooting (which occurred with an assault weapons ban in place), President Clinton requested $60 million in federal money to fund a fifth round of funding for a program called “COPS in School,” a program that does exactly what the NRA is proposing and the media is currently in overdrive mocking.]


  • Judith

    P.S. I think Newt could do the job one handed. Like the revered John Kerry / “he knows the position”, and the ha ha “important folks”. He could fight them with brains if nothing else. Of course they have little brain matter so Newt could have “smooth sailing”. And he ain’t afraid of nobody!!

This generation of humans are hollow inside there’s nothing there. NO GUILT. NO RIGHT or WRONG. ANYTHING goes-I mean anything goes! I also vote for Newt not Ryan he is too weak. We need a Patton or John Wayne to fight these savages in their own games.
