Skip to comments.[Since they booted Newt out] Republicans Gone Missin’
Posted on 04/17/2012 11:29:56 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Republicans gone missin again in 2010 they received an injection of new blood energetic men and women ready to take back our Country. But, the Old Republican Establishment gave them a grand welcome and shot them in the foot every time they stepped forward with a substantial idea that would strengthen our Nations foundation.
What the freshmen didnt know is the Old Republican Establishment has been around for a long time and theyre happy basking in the sun, playing golf and living high on the hog off of taxpayers money. They actually black balled the freshman stars like Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Michelle Bachmann and played their usual game of politics just enough to throw the freshmen off their game plan.
Boehner kept stirring the pot, putting on a lot of nonsensical theatrics in an attempt to appease Americans using Obamas favorite mode of operation, distraction and division of the troops. Boehner shed a few tears and jumped around like a hyena with hemorrhoids, but the X-rated theatrics was just a replay of their tomfoolery and monkey shines since Newt Gingrich left the White House.
Listening to Boehners update again this week was pretty much like listening to a teenager trying to explain away his over charged credit card. Boehner starts out by tattling on the Obama Administration and finishes by telling us that gas prices are high, inflation has kicked us in the butts and the economy stinks. Its all show and go, nothing more or nothing less just a carefully planned canned speech so the Old Republican Establishment can just keep kicking the can down the road.
In 2009 Americans reluctantly handed over 787 billion dollars to the one some call Obama never to see the money again. Where were those bright eyed bushy tailed Republicans who promised to watch our backside and keep us safe? Gone Missin!
Not one Republican watched out for us, because they were too busy sitting on their a- - s enjoying the good life and spending our money. Americans were stonewalled and the Republicans in the White House have to take full responsibility for their negligent attitude the Republicans didnt have a clue, nor did they care where our stimulus money was going, who the beneficiaries were or whose pockets Obama was lining with our money during his redistribution spree.
They seem to think that they have some sort of political immunity when it comes to the oath Article VI of the Constitution specifies that members of Congress shall be bound by an oath to support the Constitution.
The Republicans go under the false assumption that telling Americans after the fact is just hunky dory and removes all responsibility from them as public servants working for the people. We heard about the GM scam after the fact. They told us about the green company scandals like Solyndra, Sun State, Fisker after millions of dollars have been confiscated never to be seen again.
They ooh and ah over the GSA scandal and the latest the secret service scandal in Columbia, but theyre always a day late and a dollar short they feign shock every time Americans get hit below the belt. They tell us about the obscene bonuses being handed out to the Freddie, Fannie, AIG and Solyndra executives but once were told they consider their mission completed.
Congress knew about the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation before the murders of Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata and hundreds of innocent Mexican men, women and children because AIG sent Congress a memo discussing the changes that must be implemented, the lack of organization and dangers that the operation imposes, but not one Republican stood up and did anything about it.
They waited until Issa and Grassley blew the lid off the operation and then they half -heartedly demanded that Eric Holder resign.
When they succumbed to the pressures of the Obama Administration and talked us into raising the debt ceiling; they sealed that deal by promising frivolous Government spending would be ruthlessly cut to pay for the increase, but that didnt happen. They allowed Elena Kagan to slip thru the cracks and become a Supreme Court Justice because frankly they were just too damn lazy to do their homework.
Theyve been missin since Newt Gingrich left our White House because once Newt was gone they revived their Elite Club fattened up their bank accounts and have been living happily ever after.
So America its time to Take Back Our Country for as Ronald Reagan said, To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last but eat you he will. Ronald Reagan
Lets quit feeding the crocodiles for they are eating us for breakfast, lunch and dinner one bite at a time. Stand up and fight for your children, grandchildren and generations to come and lets restore our Nation to One Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for All.
May God Bless America
As far as going with a particular presidential candidate right now -- I mean -- had a chance to talk to Newt, I havent had a chance yet to talk to Gov. Romney, Santorum said on a conference call. But well be talking to both of them and we are going to go out and deal with who we believe is in the best interest of our country and winning this election and make sure that we have a conservative platform, conservative message and they follow through with that conservative message after the election.
This is a not-so-subtle jab at the man about to become the partys standard bearer. Santorum consistently would say on the campaign trail that in 2008, Romney convinced him of his conservative bona fides before he backed him and then Romney quickly changed his tune.
Although Santorum is expected to eventually back Romney -- both longtime adviser John Brabender and top donor Foster Friess told ABC News last week they expect him to endorse Romney -- he was specific Monday night that he was not endorsing anyone in the presidential race.
I havent supported any candidate at this point,........
RICHARDSON (CBSDFW) Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says hes not leaving the Presidential race anytime soon. Im the tortoise in this race, Gingrich says. Ill just keep coming forward and Im still here.
Before 75 supporters in a packed Richardson restaurant along Central Expressway Monday afternoon, Gingrich sounded upbeat.
He told the town hall meeting, I certainly felt a lot more encouraged by donors than discouraged by the elite media.
But hes facing an uphill climb.
Jack Fink: Mitt Romney is on his way to the nomination, mathematically you cant win, so whats your rationale for staying in the race?
Newt Gingrich: Its interesting, in Colorado this weekend, the delegates chosen were 13 for Romney and 23 not for Romney, and I dont think any of the national news media picked it up yet. The inevitability train didnt seem to get across the Rockies. Im campaigning here, Im campaigning in North Carolina, in Delaware, in Pennsylvania, tomorrow, Ill be in New York for two days this week. I think we still have the right to have the last conservative standing, and make the case for conservatism...........................
I’m proud of our state of Wisconsin, booting out the wretched Feingold and sending our new Senator Ron Johnson and look what the GOPe have / are doing to him! They are pulling out the stops just like Romney’s folks did to Sarah Palin in 08. The aids tell the press that Ron Johnson’s staff is going to be fired and it’s all lies.
But IF they don’t toe the line he WILL fire them. He’s a great guy but is swimming upstream. I’m not happy that he jumped on board Romney’s boat, but so did our terrific Paul Ryan. Both good guys. Just hang in there folks - we need to send more T.E.A party folks for re-inforcements.
Don’t give up and don’t give in.
Huh? You mean House of Reps?
I read about the grief they’re giving Johnson. They’re being picked off one by one.
LoL! I saw that too. I imagine it’s a bit of wishful thinking.
Johnson’s a tough guy - and a true gentleman. He already came out and said those lies were false being spread about his staff being fired. Is that a double negative?
He told us during his campaign that he’s not going there to be a nice guy and certainly not to reach across the isle. He and Walker and Ryan are 3 peas in a pod. We’re looking to replace silent Sen. Herb Kohl this November. He is finally retiring. yeah.
