It's nine months away from the 2014 midterm elections and the conventional wisdom is that the Republican Party should be able to regain control of the Senate, after failing in 2010 and 2012.
I predict they'll fail again this year, not because of us "wacko bird" Tea Party conservatives and our "crazy" candidates, but because they're once again showing there's not much difference between then and the radical socialism of Richard Milhous Obama, except maybe they don't want it fast enough.
Tuesday night, we heard how the GOP is ready to surrender on the debt ceiling fight. Never mind that the "boy wonder" Paul Ryan promised us they would fight that, especially after he negotiated the GOP surrender to Obama on the budget deal that killed the sequester and cut benefits for disabled veterans.
Well, how did that big show of "bipartisanship" work out for ya, Paul? Well, Harry Reid and that pinko Bernie Sanders (not troop supporters) are looking to restore the benefits, according to National Journal (via This Ain't Hell). Of course, "Dingy Harry" is just using it to get votes by blaming the GOP for cutting vets' benefits.
Just like Lucy did to Charlie Brown with the football, didn't see that one coming, huh Paul?
Now, John Boehner and the absolutely putrid Rinse Preebus of the RNC are pushing the insanity known as "Immigration Reform" which means amnesty of those who broke our immigration laws. Never mind the fact that the American public does not want it (remember 2007?), especially at a time when more Americans are out of work now than in 2007.
Meanwhile, the idiots in the GOP RINO establishment show how phony their "Hispanic outreach" is by attacking Ted Cruz for having the courage to take on not just Obama, but members of his party (like Peter Wehner) who are intent on the Party committing political suicide by abandoning conservatism and attacking Cruz.
Meanwhile, all the pushing for amnesty by the martini-swilling, oompah loompah John Boehner does is change the subject from the failure of Obamacare and how it hurts real Americans.
Like these workers outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Weekly Standard).
Boehner, Preebus, and the GOP establishment are royal idiots. Here are Americans not just in the Pittsburgh suburbs who are suffering because of this President, and they are aiding and abetting him even more by changing the subject from this disaster, as well as helping their crony-capitalist friends at the Chamber of Commerce to bring in more cheap labor (and new Democrat voters) by legalizing those who broke our immigration laws.
There's a real tone deafness in the GOP when they put their big business cronies over the suffering of those who make America work. That's why the GOP is having problems winning elections,
No wonder Ted Cruz rightly said the GOP country club establishment "should go ahead and put a 'Harry Reid for Majority Leader' bumper sticker on their car, because that will be the likely effect if Republicans refuse to listen to the American people and foolishly change the subject from Obamacare to amnesty."
