come on... Mike Pence is a good guy. Calling him a RINO is out of line. Kindly reserve the epithet for real RINOs.

What we have going on here is that those wanting change, are just going to have to wait while coalitions are built. The GOP will cut a little bit from spending each and every year, at the same time as they cut taxes. The cutting of taxes will spur economic growth, and the extra revenue that will flow into the coffers, along with the cuts of course, will lead to a NIRVANA of a balanced budget.

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?

Face it. Nobody passes the Freeper “purity” test. Nobody.

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.

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.

What is with you people...Mike Pence is NOT a RINO...conservatives here seem to call any and every one who doesn't line up perfectly with them a RINO...this is way over the top...

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.

It is all regional or local right now. I will ask a friend who is very connected into the TP and see if he has any information on anything in your area. Perhaps you could post an inquiry in the activism section of FR. That should get you the contact info that you need. The TP is the best tool to keep these liberals in line... the liberal elite republican leadership is attacking and complaining about the Tea Party so we must be dropping our bombs all over the correct targets!

Rush has been slamming the republicans for non action and he has said that he has told them (over the years and especially these days) that they risk a viable third party that will destroy the gop and that they do not listen to him... he conjectured yesterday that they are still not listening to his advice. He is no republican party hack. There are no coalitions being built... the leadership hates us... Rush told of a Hampton's party when he was only 4 years into his radio show and how the leadership was pressuring him THEN to get “those Christians... those embarrassing country bumpkins to shut up about social issues like abortion... that they didn't like us and their wives were disgusted with having to come to gatherings where “those southern Bible thumpers” are attending. They want our money, our votes and our silence. No way... I want them retired and out of work permanently... some of them I want investigated and charges brought and justice served where applicable.

I’m a FReeper, and I don’t expect anybody to be perfect. Nobody is.
