come on... Mike Pence is a good guy. Calling him a RINO is out of line. Kindly reserve the epithet for real RINOs.
IS THAT THE STRATEGY?
How long have you been watching politics? That was what Reagan said. Guess what, nobody, no not ANYONE cuts spending. Unless they are willing to balance the budget within 1 year from today, they are lying. There is no other way, but to cut the budget to the flippin' bone while you have a chance.
I heard for years about how "once we hold the levers of power in the House, Senate and the Executive, we will be able to return the fiscal house to order". Guess what happened, it never happened. GW Bush and the tax and spend Republicans came to town. Oh they cut taxes on the face of it, but added in the hidden tax of deficits which are an absolute tax on each and every citizens wallet. I just flat out don't believe any of them if they told me the sky was up. How are the Republicans going to face the Democrats down in 2012? Which would people rather vote for? The guys in charge of the biggest deficits in history.....the CONGRESS....who do you think will put that on TV 24/7? Or as guys going down swinging for the little guy as big govt rolls them over? I think that they think that they can win a bigger majority, work really slowly for some change, and bring in a better day in 20 years or so. EXCUSE ME, we don't have 6 years until the debt bomb explodes.
I also remember in or around 2000, a prominent radio personality say "if we get controls of both House and Senate, and win the Presidency, and still nothing is done about making govt substantially smaller, I will support a new party". Guess what, that time has come and gone....RUSH LIMBAUGH, which party are you going to champion?
Sorry if I went off on you, but this baby out with the bath water is one of the oldest BS lines in the business. It is used to keep frightened people from making substantial changes. It is past time for people on the side of small limited govt to fight. It is time to unite behind radical change. A change back to the time of limited govt, within the confines of the Constitution, defined by the 10th amendment, or die trying.
Pence....we’d have to check his personal finances to see if he was “gotten to”....
which reminds me...did we ever find out how successful Dumbo was in going after Swiss accounts?....or is that how he is blackmailing certain people?
Well hopefully it will be because they don’t want to let the cat out of the bag, early.
I just spoke to my rep, David Dreier (California). I asked the phone person, not Dreier, why they had passed another CR and had not addressed Obamacare. I was shocked at the answer. “If they, the Republicans, shut the government down, people would not get their SS checks and she would not be there to answer the phone.” I asked about attending a townhall meeting next week with Mr. Dreier and she asked me where I heard that. She informed me they do not have Townhall meetings. Dreier won the last election with a 70% majority. We have a problem.
I heard Rep Kingston on Hugh Hewitt yesterday. He had the same talking points and failure to communicate as Pence’s interview and my phone conversation with David Dreier’s folks. What is going on?
Exactly. If Pence does not follow exactly the same strategy that one Freeper happens to espouse, he's a RINO. And if you stand up for the "RINO," you get flamed. There's no room for honest disagreement.
That’s exactly right and Mike Pence said as much in his interview with Sean.
Pence President material Not!
We’re all busy back biting all the fairly solid conservatives and the next thing you know McCain wins the primary.
He is less a RINO than most all of our potential candidates.
And so will all of us.
Get ready for Obozo 2012.
You are playing right into what the left is trying to get you to do....get real...
So Pence is another putz.
Take the RINO traitor out.
Sometimes I think that those who cry "RINO!" at the mere hint of a suggestion that a candidate may disagree with someone in here are Alinskyesque plants trying to foment division among conservatives.
The headline is accurate, I heard the interview today and have crossed Pence off my list. All I kept think was, Talk Show Host, another good time Charlie hail fellow well met type.
He left me wonder which side he is on and who is paying him. Talk about in campaign mode... that was all he was interested in.
Loser to me.
Right! Mike Pence opposes defunding Obamacare and not supporting him puts us in danger! What next? Sing “Barack Hussein Obama, Mmm Mmm Mmm.”
I am neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, nor am I a physic...ah...er.....psychic! But for the longest time, while lots of others have been voicing the opinion that Pence could walk on water, there was SOMETHING about him that gave me pause. And you just nailed it! Thanks.
I missed the interview but that surprises me - I know he was one of the 54 Republicans who voted NO on the Continuing Resolution.
Is there anything I can do to help with people that you know, or know about? I am flat out tired of slaving away and having nothing change. I live in WA state, and am both ready to move to a place I can participate, and attempt to make a diff.
BUSINESS AS USUAL IS GOING ON... That’s what.
If it walks like a duck... looks like a duck and quacks like a duck...
“Nobody passes the Freeper purity test. Nobody.”
I’m a FReeper, and I don’t expect anybody to be perfect. Nobody is.
