Skip to comments.Kathleen Parker: House Republicans rise up against the right wing (gag!)
Posted on 12/15/2013 7:41:41 AM PST by Timber Rattler
Tis the season, and Nancy Pelosi has given the hands-down best gift to the American people her phrase Embrace the suck.
Offered to fellow Democrats as a push to pass the bipartisan budget bill, the phrase has all the characteristics necessary to ensure a permanent place in the popular lexicon. Its succinct, raunchy-esque and, most important, you know exactly what it means. It sucks, but its the best well get.
And Republicans are on fire. The real story isnt that a bipartisan budget bill has been hammered out but that House Speaker John Boehner has ignited.
He and others of like mind obviously have decided to sacrifice party unity in the interest of national well-being. What a concept. Over a couple of days during the budget negotiations, Boehner turned both barrels on insurrectionists both inside and outside Congress especially the big conservative action groups that have undermined any efforts at compromise and bipartisanship.
Depending on how things shake out in the remaining days of the jolly season, we could be witnessing the first shots of an old-guard revolution from which emerges the leader Republicans have been waiting for.
Center stage: Paul Ryan.

Try not to gag, but the Beltway media are circling the wagons around their favorite big government Republicans; and notice how they position them as courageously standing up to conservatives.
To add my two cents worth, these GOP hacks and Rat apologists are all whistling past the grave yard as they chortle about their supposed "victory" over Conservatives. They've clearly forgotten that these GOP-E "leaders," who so "courageously" stood up to their constituents, will be needing those very same constituent votes come next November.
I’ve never seen an article about the House DemocRATS rising up against their extreme left wing. This is why the GOP is a bunch of losers.
No, conservatives have risen up against the establishment left wing.
Hard to believe that people who were able to figure out how to get elected to office are too stupid to realize what you're saying above.
Good luck with that.
So much for the GOP’s new “big tent”. No admittance for onservatives and TEA Party types.
Repubs had better watch it.
Following Revolution II, the guillotine will be an equal opportunity liberal and RINO culling device.
Dems can rally around 70% agreement.
Reps will shred each other over the last 10%.
FR is a perfect example.
As Barney Fife used to say, they want to “nip it in the bud”
“Come on guys, it’s October! If you don’t vote for Gop-e ____X_____, then you’re really voting for the democrat.”
Amen Brother. They will be needing us in the coming elections, and I don’t know about you, but if a candidate isn’t Conservative they can KMA.
No more voting for the least of two evils for me.
Ok, how about this idiot explaining in her next column how continued spending and borrowing is in "the interest of national well being?" We know how this ends, and it isn't pretty.
what is your point?
You think we should support Frauds like K street whore Bonehead and Ryan ?
These evil creatures are destroying tis country!
He and others of like mind obviously have decided to sacrifice party unity in the interest of national well-being.
But Kathleen, the democrats continually tell us that
party unity is the national interest...at least when
their man is president.
What happened to “Dissent IS patriotic!”.
This from the woman who was stupid enough to take the obvious career-killer with her assignment with that smarmy Elliot Spitzer at CNN.
national well being?
does anyone think this budget bill is in the national well being?
Not if you are a conservative who uses common sense and logic.
In a fair primary, when the establishment candidate beats the conservative, we should rally around the winner for the fall campaign.
This is true but it applies IF and ONLY IF the establishment in turn rallies around the winning conservative candidates for the fall.
And there’s the rub. Anybody on FR can cite multiple examples of the establishment selling out conservatives for the general (the VA Gov. Race as a latest example).
When the establishment loses primaries, they take their marbles and go home. Conservatives however, are supposed to rally round the flag, and we are supposedly the sore losers if we don’t.
I’m tired of hypocrites calling me out for the problems within the party. And. I won’t play by those rules any longer. (Not that this party can survive comprehensive immigration reform in any case; it can’t.)
this wasn’t 10%
this was total capitulation by the Republicans, AGAIN... it happens over and over and over
The GOP needs to either be overhauled or just die.
She supports higher taxes, higher debt, higher spending and ObamaCare now??
No wonder she voted for Obama.
I’m not saying you should support anybody.
My point is that we’re screwed.
The schism is on the non-Democrat side.
And the Dems have learned to exacerbate it by funding Libertarians to bleed R votes (see: McAwful in Virginia).
She made a near fatal faux pas this morning on Meet the Press. Talking about Joe Biden, she said something to the effect that he stands in the shadow of the ki...president. She was actually about to use the word “king.”
That is probably the way leftists think, that Obama should rule by decree.
I was shocked, though. These Washington people are out of control.
Yep, and there is nothing to stop them now
Wait, We’re cutting the benefits of retired Military, so we can pay for Obamaphones, free healthcare to illegals, and abortions for the whole world???
Sorry Boner. I can’t go for that. There will be “electorial” blood next fall. I will vote 3rd party where the ballot has any GOPe candidate.
RINO’s are rising up, yes.
Conservatives haven't gotten 50% of what they wanted on any issue for years.
House Republicans have found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
It’s the only trick they know.
The big spending RINOS won .need more tea party people..
It’s a hoax! We don’t elect our representatives, nor do we elect the president. We are simply fooled into thinking we do.
Big money, corporate sponsors, and party leaders, determine who runs, and who wins.
Although I heard this over and over in the past, I never believed it.
It took me nearly 30 years. Finally, I get it.
So what’s the GOPe’s game? I’m serious, I don’t get it.
They’re stupid yes but not stupid enough to publicly attack a huge chunk of Republican voters without a reason.
Is this some kind of pre-emptive attack to help defeat primary challengers?
Is it some sort of collusion with the Dems?
Someone enlighten me.
Thanks for the gag alert, did not bother to read.
GUNS take a EVIL HUMAN BEING TO CAUSE HARM. Just as shoe laces, fence post do. My son was murdered with a fence post.
Come 2014 SEND THIS RINO TN SEN LAMAR ALEXANDER PACKING. Joe Carr, TN state legislator, has a conservative voting record. GO JOE GO! good bye lamar don’t let the door hit you on the way out!
Gop K street crony capitalist crowd did not want the honest Ken C to win.
They preferred a crook like McAwful .
Your right , the VA Gop elites openly worked against Ken C.
