It has a kind of poetry to it ...
Nothing to parse. No there there. Nothing bad. Unlike Boner stabbing us in the back.
Something tells me this won’t be picked up. These kind of inside baseball conversations happen all the time.
I’d be more worried about these Boehner emails.
Great to see Rand thinks we will win though. He’s not a wild-eyed optimist either.
Mitch should have repeated - - louder, “I’m all wired up here”.
And then Paul said “lord satan I worshop you.” Let’s just put a wooden stake in his heart.
I am ticked off. My son, who is a recent high school graduate has been trying to find a steady job for months, was hired for a job. Then he was told that he can’t start work yet because they have to run his name through Everify before he can start this new job. Obama shut down the Everify website. He put up a cyber Barrycade, I guess. What a great way to help the economy.
Reps will never win the media war. The only thing to do is be consistent.
Reps should hit the new media hard. not sure social media is worth the time, full of liberals
I’m shock McConnell would deign to talk to Paul. I thought he hated him with a passion.
Who is “they” in “I don’t think they poll tested we won’t negotiate”. By context, it would appear to be the media. The only explanation I can up with is that the “republicans won’t negotiate” message isn’t gaining traction, and as a result, the Republicans are seeing some good polling numbers. Also, later lines indicate that the polling is showing that the “we wanted to defund, but will settle for a delay” approach is resonating.
But the fly in the ointment is the “it’s awful for them to say that”, unless he just means it’s a tactical mistake for them to keep harping on the “won’t negotiate” message. Otherwise, it doesn’t mesh well with the above.
Any other explanations?
So Paul is saying: "I think if we keep saying 'We wanted to defund it ... [but] ... we're willing to compromise on this' ... we're gonna win this "
OK, I get it. We are the party of compromise, you won't compromise, we will win the argument.
If Jesse Jackson can talk about ‘cutting Obamas nuts out’ this is a non-event.
Make Dingy eat his peas and pass a balanced budget.
Lord above! The Pubbies talk to each other and develop strategies? Who knew? Is this a recent development?
>> “I’m all wired up here, um,” Senator McConnell replied.
What’s to parse? They realize they’re on live mic.
There's the money quote. 0bama is as intransigent privately as he is publicly. TOTUS has not "bent over backwards" to work with Republicans. That was a lie.
Just since this moring 0bama has said "I won't negotiate" then he said "I bent over backwards" then he said "I won't negotiate" then he had his private meeting making it appear that he would work with the House and now we find out he refused to negotiate there.
0bama is cycling faster than a schizophrenic on meth.
But the CR funds the government at the same levels as the sequester implemented. I thought this was all about blocking the implementation of a bad piece of legislation, Obamacare. Now it's about debt reduction?
