“I don’t know of anybody in the business community who takes the side of the Taliban minority,” said Dirk Van Dongen, longtime chief lobbyist for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors who has known Boehner since the lawmaker’s first election.

“...compare tea party to Taliban...”

Ha!

They’re telling us just how little they know about the Tea Party AND how little they know (but should) about the Taliaban!!

Boycott worked in the First Tea Party,
and would end this now.

Every backer of the RINOs and the MSM
should be identified.

It is one thing to say you compare the Tea Party to the Taliban. It is quite another to come up with valid reasons why you take that stance. Does Dirk Van Dongen have any valid reasons why he has come to this conclusion?

No one in house is running against Bohner anyway, they didnt in January and they are not now.

They dont want to be Speaker, they want him to be the goat while they get on TV and announce they are voting ‘no’ on stuff that Obama signs anyway.

Rush and Levin wont tell you that but I will.

Its a Kabuki dance.

this latest crap by the GOP makes me definitely want to turn Libertarian or Constitutional Party. Being in NYC doesn’t mean crap anyway—totally Dems.

I thought the bias from the media in 2008 and 2012 were the worst I have ever seen but the media might have out done themselves here .
Their bias is not even hidden anymore.

Chambers of Communists locally here in the Twin Cities metro like to pimp for choo choo trains to herd sheeple to their ‘sustainable housing’ projects.

Crony Crapitalists.

If you want to understand why groups like these publicly support obumber, dig for the Wall Street Journal story on the real story as to why the DOJ is prosecuting JP Morgan.

Not that I am any fan of the super big banks. Quite the contrary.

But the fact is that obumbler and JP Morgan were thick as thieves, if you will pardon the pun, but obumbler turned on him like a pit bull because Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase made the mistake of criticizing obumbler.

The result has so far cost JP Morgan BILLIONS in attorney fees, settlements, etc., and the end is not in sight.

Companies who exist under the blessing of government permits or government contracts have to be very careful.

The big question is:

Would Bammy et. al. have turned on their Bankster base and actually defaulted on some of the Treasury bucketfuls of paper output?

Key word here...Lobbyist...The Chamber of Commerce has been real friendly with Obama too.

I keep hearing the word “dysfunctional” Government. Part of the “dysfunction” can be attributed to the Lobbyists who play all sides against the middle.

Lenin was right, but he understated it. Idiot capitalists will buy the rope that hangs them, not sell it.

The Washington Times should do a story on how much these business are making from Government contracts.

Dirk is talking out his a$$. Any enterprising blogger can read this letter from the Director of NAW and see that they are NOT happy with the taxes, etc that are killing their industries.

Taliban?

Do you REALLY want someone like me, actually ACTING like a Taliban terrorist?

Keep it up. I have less to lose on a daily basis.
