Posted on 01/17/2013 11:23:22 AM PST by Reaganite Republican
John Boner and Mitch McConnell don’t want to offend Obama.
*** PING ***
Any whod like to be added to the RR ping-list, pls FReepmail me at Reaganite Republican -TIA
like the millions of dead babies killed by abortion.
GAWD what I wouldn’t do for a real fighter on our side... Gingrich did OK with a House majority vs Clinton, didn’t he
Great Idea: Give them a bill for the amount they owe.
Our guys are just SO lame, no charisma, no charm, not clever
I cannot believe Boehner was a SALESMAN in his prior career!!! He must have been terrible, good grief-
Treating the electorate like rational adults is a recipe for defeat. If idiot demogoguery is what it takes to secure this nation's future, then the GOP better learn to hold their noses and do it. There's a reason politicians once became famous for "kissing babies."
Thisis exactly the attitude that we must adopt. Go on the offensive and use the same props/arguments as the opposition.
History is repleat with examples of armies being overcome by smaller forces due to a change in tactics and weaponry, and an unwillingness/inability to adapt to the change. Look at our history with the British and fighting methods, conquest of the western lands, and Vietnam. This is a battle that we must adapt to and win.
Give the kids a sucker and a bill not a lollipop but a sucker.
Palin called it using our children as an ATM.
>> the Republicans’ thing would have everything to do with the next generation....
Levin’s suggestion is nothing short of brilliant!
Won’t happen, of course.
To quote Nancy Pelosi, “it’s for the children.”
I prefer the idea of having Boner and McUseless being surrounded by kids with placards arround their necks
The palcards should say “ I owe $34,865.oo and I cant even work yet “
I just watched the RAT consultant Bob Shrum on MNSBC crowing about how they are going to ram gun control through Congress since the "Fiscal Cliff" deal proved the Republicans are powerless.
The conventional wisdom about bullies is correct.
Wasn’t Bohner a doctor?
"How does it feel to carry the burden your parents have put on you?"
(That's 286 pounds!!!!)
That’d be a great idea!
...if the Republicans wanted to do anything about the debt.
Boehnor had a small business, and he also became head of a particular homeowners association. His original family operated a small bar, in which he worked sweeping floors as a young kid, like 10 years old. Boehnor actually had a good background of experience having to struggle in life and that struggle included having to deal with the heavy hand of gubmint making your struggle harder. Doctor? No way.
It seems a waste to criticize them for they keep getting elected.
Two reasons: they’re not that clever and they have no balls.
“—the GOP isn’t known as the stupid party for nothing.”
GOP = Gutless Old Party.
You don't need to kill any kinds, CGI will be satisfactory.
You can see armed SS guys behind the principle, guns out, protecting him ~ or not.
I agree. It would be a fantastic idea. Stage it to look exactly like the setting for Obama’s shameless display of children. Also have the PR folks write some fake letters that supposedly came from the innocent, but precocious and charming young children—just like Obama did.
“Dear Mr. Boehner: Why does the president want to keep saddling me and my friends with trillions of dollars of debt? I didn’t do anything to deserve this. I don’t think that’s very nice. I think the president is a very mean man. Please work your hardest to protect me and my friends from a life of economic despair caused by this president. I’m counting on you. Your friend, Jimmy.”
Because the would be raped by the media as they stood there surrounded by children pointing that each of them is already over $50K in debt through the Federal Government with the amount growing all the time.
It would be both entertaining and enlightening to see what terms and memes they used, though.
The Republicans can’t get a fair hearing on anything they do or don’t do in the current media climate.
The media is the problem. Obama is not perfect. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi aren’t likeable and filled with charm. Hillary is most definitely NOT the sexiest woman alive.
The media is completely controlling everything. Obama could trip down stairs (Ford), misspell potato, secretly tape RNC meetings, then have sex with 10 interns both male and female and the media would prop him up not tear him down.
I can’t imagine any scenario where the media lose their power to shape the conversation and public opinion. And until conservatives can find a way around pop-culture and the ‘news’ we are stuck.
Lee Atwater was the last real fighter in the GOP.
I suggested this just a day ago on this very website.
Makes me wonder if Mark reads here.
However, the GOP will not do it, because it will take no effective measure to defeat Obama or the democrats on anything at all, because it does not wish to defeat them, it wishes to assist them.
Furthermore, they should not do it, because it will earn the children enemeies that they did not have before they appeared with the accursed GOP, and children do not deserve that in my mind.
The GOP will be accused of hiding behind human shields of children by an Obama surrounded by children. The GOP will be hated for its cowardice in politicizing children, the children will be hated for assisting the GOP, and people will remark at how noble and beautiful Obama’s children are.
This is America.
“Why don’t Republicans” ...
I see this phrase all the time. Republicans are NEVER EVER going to do what we think they should do. Ever. Get use to it.
I think the GOP should put their best representatives forward immediately following every press conference or stupid speech obama gives refuting his lies and insinuations.
They simply do not want Obama’s lies and insinuations refuted, otherwise they would refute them.
Actions speak louder than words, and in the case of the GOP, inaction speaks louder than silence.
Might have something to do with why he went into politics.
He thinks acting like Dems ensures the same amount of press covereage? Really? This is quite naive.
I like Mark Levin but it wouldn’t work.
If done by us it would be treated as repugnant.
When done by Obama it is treated as proof he cares.
That’s how it would be reported by every MSM news show.
With a straight face.
Because that’s what they believe.
Obama is noble and above reproach.
Everyone who disagrees with him is evil.
Stop thinking facts matter at all.
I have been saying this for years, any Republican that truly gives a damn about this country and the Children, only needs to go on a Thank an 8 Yr Old Campaign, visiting Elementary Schools and THANKING them for being there to PAY OUR BILLS.
Oh, I dunno. He probably schmoozed and bribed his way to get the sales. Just like Congress. Cronies, lies, and smiles. And booze. Lots of booze.
He's about as smarmy as they come.
