Skip to comments.Norquist: Defunders Owe Conservatives an Apology
Posted on 10/16/2013 1:14:33 PM PDT by SoConPubbie
Grover Norquist isnt happy with the Defunders. The Americans for Tax Reform president told reporters today that they have a lot of apologies to make and bridges to re-build.
Itd be a good idea if they stopped referring to other Republicans as Hitler appeasers because they opposed the strategy they put forward which failed, Norquist says. I think if you make a mistake as big as what they did, you owe your fellow senators and congressmen a big apology and your constituents, as well, because nothing they did advanced the cause of repealing or dismantling Obamacare.
Norquist refrained from naming the specific people who he thinks owe apologies to the rest of the conservative movement, but his reference is transparent during his lengthy floor speech, Senator Ted Cruz said Republicans who supported a CR that would fund Obamacare were comparable to Neville Chamberlain.
Norquist adds that the defund effort has hurt its proponents goals.
They hurt the conservative movement, they hurt peoples health care, they hurt the countrys economic situation and they hurt the Republican party, he says. And a lot of congressmen and senators are not going to win because we spent three months chasing our own tail or at least, parts of the conservative movement spent three months chasing their own tail.
He also compared the Defunders strategy to that of the Iraq invasion.
These are the people who said, Plan: Step One, Invade Iraq. Step Two, It turns into Kansas, Norquist says. Could I ask if theres anything in between Step One and Step Two? Oh ye of little faith.
Grover needs to loosen his burkha and remember what planet he lives on
Kiss my *ss Grover.
I’m ashamed to admit that twenty years ago I was quite the disciple of Grover and worked with him quite a bit.
Now he’s just another two-bit whore to the political class and the Wahabbists.
Here’s my apology, Norquist:
I apologize for thinking that the GOP represents my core beliefs. Tomorrow, I’ll be changing my political affiliation from Republican to Independent.
Grover Al Norquist needs to move to some middle eastern hell hole and marry a herd of nanny goats and leave Americans alone.
Boehner may be all ready to roll over...but there are many of us who aren't.
The GOP conservative should rebel in the House against Boehner and vote him out as the Speaker and replace him with a conservative Speaker willing to do battle and take Obama to the mat.
In fact the GOP should take the following line in talking to Obama.
"Look, Barry, we have the votes to stop you cold, and we have decided to use those votes.That's the discussion a real Speaker of the House should be having with Obama.
"We control government funduing and we are going to exercise that control.
"We are talking about a complete shutdown where not so much as a dime will be available for you to even heat the White House, so get ready to stay at the local Holiday Inn on your own dime for the duration. Also, tell Michelle she can send her 100+ assistants home to, and weed her own garden.
"The only thing we will fund during that time is the US military you hate so much.
"When you are ready to talk about seriously creating a budget...one that is balanced, one that really reduces the debt...and we are talking about a true reduction in the actual amount we owe, not just a reduction in the percentage of your spending increases...and a budget we that puts an end to ObamCare. When you are ready to seriously talk to us about those things...get back with us.
"Oh, BTW, Barry. One other thing we will fund is the following. The House of Reprentatives will meet each day with the express purpose of impeaching your sorry backside each day for the next 60 working days. Impeach you each day on a different charge. 60 impeachments, Barry. When you get ready to talk to us, then the first thing the Senate will have to take up is those 60 impeachments. Think about that while you are waiting, and watching.
"So, we have the votes, and we are firm. Give us a call when you are ready to talk. Bye now."
Notice The Muslim loving Norquist never mentions his and RINO’s strategy.
Just blames conservatives. Norquist, I congratulate you on your soon to
be winning strategy of surrender. Surrender has won the day.
I’ve got news for Grover.
Conservatives ARE the ‘defunders’.
Well, that’s my perception. Anyone not willing to look at constitutionality of the thing, not to mention the destruction, both immediate and for future economic prospects generations from now, I can’t see as being conservative.
Honestly, some of these contemporary philosophers get too wrapped up.
When is he going to apologize for the K Street monster he helped to create?
When is he going to apologize for being a Muzzie supporter?
I was going to say, FUN, but it doesn’t have the same impact as FUBO
“they hurt peoples health care”
Huh? Grover’s been in DC too long.
Grover Norquist......what a genuine douchebag!!
Fatty just wants his power base back
Grover can go cry on Karl Rove’s shoulder, two peas in a pod.
Grover can go move to Saudi Arabia.
So they should apologize to the Chamberlain wing of the GOP for relying on them to actually hold firm?
B.S. The defunders ARE the conservatives.
Norquist is an islam-builder.
Deport the f***er to Afghanistan.
He must have meant conservative Muslims.
We don’t owe those bastards anything. They are NOT conservatives. They are PROGRESSIVES!
GrovertheA-rab don’ his thang for the ummah.
Norquist is pro ObamaCare....pro Islamic Terrorist....pro Illegal Alien....and no real conservative pays attention to him or ACU
You cant be pro Tax ObamaCare and claim you are an American conservative for tax reform
Good God almighty! I heve nothing but contempt for republicans and their minions.
No we don’t. No STFU and go retire with Karl Rove.
Hurt the conservative movement? No. They told the truth and sometimes the truth hurts, even if no one wants to hear it.
Hurt people's health care? Absolute lie.
Hurt the economy? Nope, another lie. Grover you should be shaking in your shoes along with the rest of the nation if you are just figuring out we are 2 weeks away from total collapse at any given moment. No apology for that, none. They didn't do it, didn't put the country in this situation.
Hurt the Republican Party? Well, Ok maybe...a little. But really, really...the GOP embarrassed themselves first all by their little lonesomes.
Hey Grover, the only reason the GOP looks bad is because people do not like you guys. Your bunch can’t even win elections. The middle class and the poor hate you elitists. Why are you unable to face the truth? For 8 years the establishment GOP has produced nothing but failure. The only reason we have the House is not because of your type.
You owe the GOP base an apology. But don’t bother. You reap what you sow. And by the way. Get your Muzzie lovin’ass behind me and apologize to the American people about your association with bloodthirsty death cults who are out to takeover and kill them. You Grover, are a disgrace.
That’s a good point. He seems to like them just fine.
Another buggy whip maker who is ignored.
Grover Norquist was one of a Greek chorus of gainsayers who not only predicted failure for Obamacare but rooted for it and did everything within their power publicly and privately to accomplish its failure.
His hands and their hands are dirty.
Me thinks there is an all-out effort to avoid blame in this man’s statements.
Considering how shocked the LIV’s are at the reality of Obamacare, those who were adamantly working to fight it might come out looking pretty popular with a lot of Americans. For the LIV, opposing Obamacare was an attempt to save the LIV from suffering a big bill/tax increase. What can the appeasers tout?
If I were Norquist, I’d be wiping my ass with the Tea Party too....
The Vidkun Quisling of conservatives speaks! Listen and be amazed!
Jump in, Grover, the water's fine.
In this case I think you spelled PEAS wrong.
It should read PEES.
Everyone is wussying in front of the One. Pathetic. The message against the cultivation of disease and handicaps by Obamacare should be easy to shape, and that is all.
What is it with people who cannot stay on language?
Grover has it backwards. Besides, Conservatives DID WANT to defund Democratcare! The others are not conservative.
Man, it is so obvious that Barry has pics of Grover doing farm animals. Guy is a loon!
Mine, too, Grover!
Norquist just wants “his” immigration bill.
I couldn’t have said it better!
Sent an email earlier telling the GOP pretty much the same thing. Done holding my nose and voting for dem-lite(GOPe). From here on out, I will only vote for conservatives. The republicans have lost my vote.
Did Cruz ruin our health care, or did the Senators who did not join him in voting against cloture?
How is health care improved if full Obamacare funding was passed with no protest?
