I’m through with the GOP. But I’ll stay on their mailing lists just to waste there resources.
I propose a new dictionary term:
Boehner (pro-nounced: Bow-ner): meaning to have no inclination to challenge others. limp-wristed. Feckless. no ability to lead. Also refers to animals without spines.
“If Gingrich had been Speaker its unlikely Obama would have won in 2012.”
Unfortunately Mr. Gingrich is not a virtuous man and can not control his hormone driven behavior.
Well stated. Sometimes we talk as if we thought we were Obama - don’t like somebody? Off with his head.
The thing that has kept our country stable for more than two centuries is that we rely on procedures carried out by different people at different levels and slowly but surely getting to the truth.
The big worry, of course, is that Obama - who has no respect for our system - has corrupted it very heavily by either ignoring it and thus making people distrust it as powerless, or loading the dice so they always fall on his side, usually by suborning or threatening the people in charge of the various parts of the system.
So I absolutely agree that we have to let the different players do their parts, and that it probably won’t be gratifyingly fast, but we also have to stay on top of it at every moment because I think there has never been a more dangerous time for our republic.
We’ve had bad presidents, lazy presidents, mildly and not so mildly corrupt presidents - but never a crazy president with a dictatorial mindset. Until now.
Come January the IRS, with the added power of ObamaCare will be grinding us up like cheap hamburger. A couple of years of that & there will be no more token than conservative resistance in this country.
Unless the ObamaCare and the IRS are gutted before January, we are toast. And we all know that the Republicans don't have the b@lls to bring down ObamaCare, even if they can.
The fix is in people. Wise up.
Im sure Im missing other MAJOR seditious events by ObaMao. Feel free to fill in the major issues (but adding the medium and low levels problems would fill a library)
He never had alcoholic beverages with pResident Obama either like the present Speaker (or is Sex the only thing on your mind)?
I mean, I'm trying to figure out what you see that's so sexual about this thread.
Great point! Knowing that, it's probably better to spread testimony across the committees in order to have a broader net. Lies are hard to maintain consistently over time and space.
“I mean, I’m trying to figure out what you see that’s so sexual about this thread.”
I don’t see anything sexual about the thread. My point is that had Mr. Gingrich been more virtuous in his public and private life he might still be Speaker. He would also have been a more viable presidential candidate for many social conservatives. Gingrich did resign in 1999 under an ethics cloud and the exposure of his affair with Calista Bisek who he married a year after his resignation (four months after his divorce). This was his third marriage, both of his prior marriages ending due to affairs he had outside the marriage.
A single special committee will be a bottleneck just like the ARB committee Hillary created and the 9/11 Omission Commission... a whitewash. A single “special” entity -like a dictatorship- has a better chance of controlling and limiting both the acceptance into evidence of new info and the outflow of information and shaping the narrative, than if there are multiple investigations headed by different people. Multiple investigations will be scrutiinized by a wider audience. Controlling and containing the results would be like herding cats, which will make it harder for aged “the good old boys” to protect eachother.
So let’s DO this!
