Well I tell ya Greta, give me the opportunity to be in leadership in Washington DC and I think youd see something different. Because coming out of the military, we didnt go home until the mission was complete. So maybe thats what the American people need to understand. Its about time we take a chance with some of the young leaders that we have sent to Washington DC and move away from this establishment rhetoric and this game that they play in Washington DC.

From the CBC member who voted for Pigford and the NDAA.
Well, if you want to lead, Alan, you can begin by denying the unanimous consent request to get full House to come back to vote.
And every conservative senator should be doing the same thing every day to get every senator on the record for every resolution.
That's not what he's talking about - I don't think.
We need a Speaker of the House West.
Linguini-spined Boehner has got to go.
He is a breath of fresh air. . . . .
Yep, ol’ Allen has shown a few different spot patterns, but the concept flies—I’m thinking Goehmert for one and a couple of the other obvious and outspoken Tea Party types in the House.
Allen, if you want to take the Point, as grunts would say, then get into the fight for the highest office in the land. We need leaders like you and Marc Rubio who are not afraid to call 0bama what he is, a socialist at lightest and Marxist for what he really is and to call Mittens what he is, 0bama light..
I cannot stand Romney,his voice on TV annoys me as much as Clinton, 0bama does and as both 41 and 43 did (even though I liked the Bushes for other than the political reasons, they were just decent men).
I swear I think if Romney is the nominee, I’ll just stay home. We get these letters begging for GOP donations and calls too and I toss out and hang up on em.
The new bosses are the same as the old ones every time..
Boehner picked the wrong fight, the wrong way to fight it and looks like a complete dumbass. He should have fought it out in February.
This was a victory and he squandered it so badly. He had Zero on the ropes, he had the Senate tied up and instead he refuses to defeat the bill and offer up one opting for this silly “negotiate” ploy. It was childs play for zero to trot out all the folks who would have to give up pizza night. It was a no brainer for the Senate to sit back and laugh.
Once again the pubbies screwed it up.
The house should have gone hime after passing the first bill...but they hang around and Harry Reid out smarted the fools in the house
Let’s start by changing the pantywaist incompetents Boehner and Cantor who can’t even run their own majority party.
House leadership needs fixed before we ever worry about the Presidency or we’ll be seeing a Queen Nancy back in the big chair.
Allen May not be around to take the point ....
Reapportionment Committee proposal to change District 22 boundaries in a way that would jeopardize Wests chances for re-election.
In Boehner’s defense, he thought he’d retire as the minority leader. He never wanted the job as speaker. We thrust it upon him. I say we do him a favor and thrust it upon someone who wants the job.
Redistrcting himouta that seat COULD be a BIG mistake...
Nah...Don’t stay home, work hard to get good House members elected. If your Senators are up this go around, work hard to get a real conservative in there.
I’m with you on the Presidential ticket, it’s looking like a “as usual” thing is going to happen.
Let’s re-enforce the TEA Party to keep any President IN CHECK.
We need to start in the Senate and kick the ass of every Rep Senator who voted for Blunt over Johnson.
West talks like a bad ass but he surrendered quicker than the french on debt ceiling, NDA and everything else the leadership wanted in this congress. No he profess a spine...Hmmmm got some prevent it to do he sir...
I’m not voting for Romney, not that it matters since I live in MA and it will go to Obama. I’ve voted for Romney three times now and that’s enough for me. I get sick looking at him and won’t be responsible for anything he does. I’ll be giving money and support to conservative candidates only.
“...who wants the job.”
IMHO, that is the key, i.e., a person has got to want the job before he should be thrown into the leadership “cauldron.” And, I think Rep. West, by these statements, is saying he wants the job. It’s similar to Newt, he has shown that he wants the job(President)by his public persistence/tenacity/facing adversity; and, if for no other reason, I would support Newt-—what do we want to enable Obama to complete his transition/destruction of this country over another four years?
When something doesn’t work out, you change it, you don’t keep doing the same thing repeatedly getting the same result—if you do, that comes close to a definition of insanity.
OK, you got me. Please translate.
That was probably the mod incoherent thing I have ever posted.. reminder ...read what you type.
Now he professes to have a spine. Got some proving it to do sir ( meaning A. West)....
My problem with West is he talks big but folds like a cheap suit when the leadership pressures him. If he wants people to believe he needs to walk the talk.
Seems it bears repeating.
“Seems it bears repeating.”
LOL... rite on
more cofee please
LOL. I know the feeling. I’m useless before maximum coffee input.
