WHY NOT?.. RE-Engineer the federal government and down size it sooo the federal government can do a few things well?..
Do you understand what McConnell means by the term Re-engineer Society? That’s what the rats have been doing since bumer got elected. McConnell’s putting the brakes on that. As to the statement you made above...that is EXACTLY the point of McConnell’s speech. That’s what he says he wants to do.
I’m not defending the RINO’s track record in the Senate but we need to dial down our expectations here a little bit or we’re going to be sorely disappointed. Guerilla warfare against obama’s agenda is about the best we can hope for at this point...unless you have a secret plan to get 67 votes in the Senate to override obama’s vetoes. If you do I’d love to hear it.
We need to oppose the left’s agenda every way we can . Put the votes to the floor to cut taxes, make the Bush tax rates permanent, repeal obamacare, lock up the Czar’s in oversight and investigations...make the left become the Party of no. Just inderstand that there are real and legitimate limitations to what the good guys can do here.
Your view is held by many in the election’s aftermath and it is a wrong view.
Gorilla warfare are two words to emote a sense of fighting when in reality it will be a series of legislative amendments to ‘fix’ Obamacare.
Instead, McConnell should muster his Republican repeal votes and the votes of scared dems to a majority, not for the purpose of passing repeal, but for the purpose of political advertising to eject Obama or any dem candidate in 2012. Then 67 votes for repeal will not be needed.
But...but if the amendments to ‘fix’ Obamascam are processed, the voting public public may well suffer a delusion of victory and be pacified enough to allow reelection of Obama or Hillary etc.
Do not accept McConnell’s political ‘realism’ under any circumstances. He is always retreating to ‘realism’ to justify his later RINO behavior. And make no doubt he will compromise in the name of ‘realism’.
The purpose is not to be realistic in ‘passing’ legislation. The purpose is to pass nothing and to use powers to defund and to oversee and block Obama end runs.
Once again, the objective here is not to ‘pass’ legislation or amendments but to defund and block.
So McConnell’s premise is to inject a dose of ‘realism’ to our hot-headed yelping, when in effect we care not for the realism of passing legislation, because we are not interested at this point in passing any legislation. We are interested in kicking both Republicans and Democrats out of office in 2012. And if we are successful in Wave II of 2012, then we can think of passing real conservative legislation.
Here on FR?.. Im tired of being disappointed.. it sucks..
Guerilla warfare is what Im talking about.. if me and Mitch are on the page.. GOOD..
If NOT, trying to herd cats is a mistake..
The House CAN pass a lot of simple one or two page legislation and overwhelm the Senate and White House..
NO behemoth unreadable bills but simple stuff the stuff Americans can read and understand..
ALL posted on a website provided by the House of Reps.. legislation used as propaganda..
Boner can and should DO what the President said HE would do but didnt..
Make the House of Reps. Transparent.. on C-Span, on the internet.. even with some email from a House blog.. The MsM will not publish all this so the "House" can do it themselves..
