“It does not: Cut enough spending, stop funding Planned Parenthood, or defund Obamacare.”

She's right. Not much gained here. Apparently we'll need a revolution to take a meat axe to the monster that is devouring us.

If the true right wins 2012 we'll avoid looking like Madrid in 1936.

No extraneous government agencies which would include most of them.

Better to have shut this enormous beast down than to allow it to continue on with its plan to raise taxes. Kill the beast before it kills the country.

Well, I saw Tea Party favorite and a favoritet of mine, Lt. Col. Allen West, on Fox this morning and he pretty much said what I said. Use Alinsky tactics. Take the victory, take the cuts, and come back tomorrow for more. And more. And more. He thought it was a good start-—but it does have to be a start, not an end.

Sad thing is it will not keep the cool-aide drinkers from lying about it.

Ham-handed attempt to set herself up as an "outsider" candidate.

Ross Perot in a bra?

Here is the question: if they’re unwilling to keep their commitment on the $100 billion November promise, is there any reason to think they won’t cave when the stakes are higher? Are we to think that the House Leaders are somehow gonna gut more intestinal fortitude when EVERYTHING is on the table? They’re gonna get TOUGHER and MORE uncompromising when Entitlements are on the line? The new Freshman Tea Party Republicans have to be soured and dismayed. They seriously wanted to change the way things work. Only to find that the career Republicans like Boehner, Cantor, and anyone who was or is a “Dubya” Progressive Republican are telling them to check their idealism and revolutionary ideas at the door to “Flyover Country”. This fight is going to be a lot worse than we thought - mostly because of the Republicans who aspire to make a life long “career” at Government, Inc.

It might have gone better for her position if she hadn’t implied the whole thing was a distraction from the real budget fight.

Speaker of the House John Boehner and Sen Mitch McConnell are both socialists. Both assist the democrats at every turn.

Some Tea Party activists are unhappy that Boehner’s deal didn’t already deal in trillions, but there simply weren’t trillions to cut in FY2011′s budget — only the remainder of the discretionary spending left after five months of temporary spending authorizations. Entitlement programs spend on auto-pilot as they are statutory obligations passed into law; the published federal budget produced by Congress only estimates those costs, while authorizing discretionary spending. Statutory changes to law have to be proposed and adopted separately from budgets by rule and by practicality. Ryan and the GOP will now have the opportunity to start proposing and pushing the kind of statutory changes necessary to change the direction of the auto-pilot that will reduce the entitlement spending for the future, starting in FY2012 if Congress can pass something that Barack Obama will sign.

John Boehner: The Next fight will be trillions, not billions
