Imploding?

Nah, it's a debate that we've needed at this level for a long time.

And it provides useful information that we need for some (electoral, of course) pruning of the GOP.

Mister Boehner appears to be showing no qualms about abusing power to frighten weak House Members into going along (about issues that he clearly does not grasp, with solutions that appear to have arisen from a bar full of empty martini glasses).

He also clearly does not see that he's falling into the politically "toxic" zone ... (Arlen Specter, move over) .

Please recall, dear FRiends, that it is none other than Mister Boehner who came up with the cleaver deal to defund our precious military by a half-trillion dollars in exchange for what amounts to be an IOU from the Dems. We do not want him cutting any more deals on our alleged behalf.

By default the dems already have their way. We go over the “cliff”, taxes go up on everyone, among lots of other bad shit (with republicans being blamed) and the military gets gutted. For them, what’s not to love?

What 0-tard is REALLY after right now is trying to get authority to raise the “debt ceiling”.... All by himself.(separation of powers anyone?)

The House should have voted to make all the tax cuts permanent,(this would help shield them from blame for when the taxes go up on expiry)sent it on to the Senate, and told Harry Reid and 0bama to have fun coming up with a deal on the “fiscal cliff”, and have a nice day.....

Instead, Boner and Cantor has allowed them to get entangled and mired down into negotiating/fighting within the party, all for NOTHING because the dems have already won by default, while 0bama and the liberals sit back and watch with enjoyment.

All I know is whoever allowed us to get setup by that “super committee” during the LAST “debt ceiling” fight needs to be comprehensively TARRED & FEATHERED! This entire mess originates with them, and left the republicans in the sorry situation they now find themselves in! Boner and Cantor were playing a game of Checkers back then, while the dems were playing Chess!

.....And they are about to give those bozos their leadership positions back, when we truly NEED A PURGE among the House “leadership”!

I think he’s after one more thing besides what you have explained. He wants the Republicans to bow down and kiss his ring in humiliation. He wants more than the power of an unlimited purse he wants their tacit, albeit unspoken, submission to his will. After they cave in on this ‘fiscal cliff’ BS I think we are going to see some amazing things happen.

No, not one bit good. I want to be wrong about it. I would rather be vilified throughout the country as a fool for saying it than to be right.

OTOH I am not entirely cynical about how the country will react to 0basma if I am right.

The republican establishment designed, with the democrats over the years, (esp. since Reagan is gone) to set this path of having no conservative voices at the table. GW Bush did mostly what he was told to do. The party elders (who are the Bushes) figured the Obama being dangerous candidate would get the base to the polls and getting Romney the win. With a liberal moderate winning, this would be finalizing the nail in the coffin for the new modern Republican party.

A large portion of the republican base have carried them to victory for years by putting their love of country first; even with distrust for these elders. This past election, many seen through the untruths and said no more helping a party which disrespects them as bad as the opposition does. I think they all want to govern over all of us with a new style one government rule. They know we are mostly a obedient and polite society. This is not something in which just happened. We can tell because look how far away we have moved from Reagan's polices and even Newt's agenda in the house. We had a lot of gains and solid legislation. We should have never lost those gains. We should have built on them. What did the new speaker do to build on what he was left with?! The reality is Obama’s forward slogan is right on course while the other side secretly asks to ride along. Now, more voters see this compromise made by the 2 parties is not a secret any longer, is it. The dems say don't worry, we go on attack because we know how to beat the conservatives (not like you, our republican friends) and we have the press. It has been a fraud perpetrated on the American citizen. Some do not care because they want what Tom has; Obama is making it easier for them to have what Tom has.

...”God’s speed Rand”...

To me, he is the smartest and most ethical man in government today. The GOP should fall at his feet for advice because he is smart, logical, courageous and is not owned by anyone. He loves his country and he is a statesman and the kind of man who will sacrifice for liberty for all. I see him as a gem in a sea of manure.

As Rush said, “obama wants an apology and an admission that the republican brand has ALWAYS been wrong and he wants the total destruction of the republican party and its core ideology". If only Reagan and Bush had not cut taxes and left tax rates astronomically high, then we would have balanced budgets and Heaven on earth. He wants the total destruction of the republican party and ALL Conservative ideology. He wants to blame every ill on the right. boehner, cantor, mcconnell and others want the same thing as obama.

Hell - there's ample evidence he's never actually FOUGHT a battle against anyone but conservative Republicans. When it comes to the other side of the aisle, all he does is posture for a while then give in. Then he cleanses his soul with some controlled weeping and is ready to go on for the next betrayal.

——we are going to see some amazing things happen.-——

Like cap and trade.

A week or so back a liberal let the cat of the bag. He said that salvation was cap and trade. Cap and trade is a tax on the masses. The energy providers are taxed and that tax is passed on to consumers as a price increase. That is a way to bypass directly taxing everyone but accomplishing it by inserting a middle man. The cap and trade method of trickle down taxation gets to the untaxed masses in a way the income tax never will. They use energy, they pay the tax.

All the recent resurgence of climate change hysteria is to grease the skids for the earth saving cap and trade trickle down tax salvation

The solution to the liberal problem is going to be very very messy

What is unique about Rand Paul is that he actually attempts to use just a very teeny, tiny bit of common sense every now and then.

It is a sad commentary that such an unillustrious trait sets him so far above other politicians. I can’t say that I agree with Rand on every issue but — before his detractors start swarming like locusts — would the country be better off with Rand calling the shots or with what the GOPe and Democrats have saddled us with for more than a generation?

I guess Rush and I see the same thing. 0banarcissist isn’t going to be satisfied with all of his budget and policy requests. He wants groveling or no deal.

I have a feeling Boehner is in over his head. He's trying to deal with 0bamugabe as if he's just another politician and is flummoxed by the response. I don't think he is alone either. They just don't want to believe what you and I and Rush can see from more objective positions.

Not that I think Boehner isn't a spineless RINO but my gut feeling is that he is being rolled and can't wrap his mind around it.

“I don’t have a problem with this.”

Me neither. We are so screwed anyway at this point that a good old fashioned blood bath in the GOP is overdue and this is as good a time as any to clear the air. Boehner and his minions have got to go.

We know that the FBI has monitored every email that we have all made and that every email and phone call that every member of Congress has made is recorded and monitored. holder owns the FBI and he also owns the leadership of the republican party. boehner and company are all corrupt... add in that boehner is an alcoholic and you see why they always give obama what he wants. They have no choice... or they lose their power. I trust no one in DC... not a single soul.

I was referring to an article here on FR about 5 days ago, about an FBI agent that quit and became a whistle blower. It is he that said that the FBI have been monitoring every phone call and email of every member of Congress (and all emails inside the US). THAT is how they caught the General and his concubine... they were already on top of his affair when his friend's wife complained of threats from his girl friend. Trust no one... X-Files was right!
