They won’t, because at the end of the day, they are part of the larger, more powerful party in DC, which is the Appropriators.

The liberals appropriate on behalf of the unions and government employees. The GOP appropriates on behalf of companies that seek out lifetime type contracts for overpriced and inferior products.

This is why every time it seems that Lucy has decided not to yank the football from Charlie Brown, conservatives always end up on their back amazed that GOP leadership caved again. There is a Tea Party because there’s nobody left to bullshit any more. McConnell, Lindsay, and the rest are there to figure out how to extend this old patronage system another year or two before they run out the string.

What happened today is that both sides figured out that you can’t have the cuts and the tax breaks and get their people elected or re-elected. Seriously, that’s the deal.

If any of them actually cared about solvency or about leaving this debt to their grandkids, then somebody in that room would be dead by now. It would have come to blows.

But they aren’t. They can’t borrow another buck from the bank, and the debt is so huge they can’t light a fire and have the insurance pay it off.

Somebody’s not getting reelected, and there is no way either side is going to take that hit. Default is probably going to happen.

The GOP is going to look at it and say, “It’s on him ultimately.”

All the useful idiots on our side saying, “It’s true, we need to raise taxes” are just aiding and abetting.

I hope we default. We deserve the government we are getting right now.

“With the job she did on... er, at HP, hasn’t she earned a chance?!”

Since she took the real HP and renamed it Agilent, I can’t imagine the wonders she will do for the GOP. Mitch has already gone Democrat so maybe we’ll switch names.

“In some dump somewhere are boxcars full of lucent circuitboards that got ‘shipped’ at the end of a tight quarter. They were supposed to come back and be re-warehoused, but they melted in the Texas sun. The party is toast. Why not make Arnold the chairman? He’s a republican, right?”

That is very funny. Thanks.

And here I thought the pubs wanted to win the senate.

Wrong — they got a multi-time loser to run the effort into the ground.

Lose, lose, lose.

Proof she is a RINO. The GOP Establishment doesn’t pick you if you aren’t. I was sick of analysts calling her a conservative. Bunk! Pure RINO.

I have been volunteering for campaigns for several years. We are getting fewer and fewer volunteers. It is getting harder and harder to get good candidates to run for office because of attitudes like yours. If they are going to run, they need support, both financially and with your volunteer hours. They also need your vote. Changing to Independent or Decline to State discourages the good candidates from running. Don't blame “The Party” when you are not doing your share.

Once we get them elected, you should hold their feet to the fire by faxing, e-mailing and calling their office with your opinions and complaints.
