Issue a matter of life, death

June 9, 2014

Once again — this time in a matter of life and death — President Barack Obama has thumbed his nose at Congress. Many members, both Democrat and Republican, are angr....

One final comment gville70...while I don't collect yeas/nays I do pay attention to threats and 'death-wishers'. Your the second one so far, the first one doesn't post here any longer. You might want to consider another forum where that behavior is encouraged/tolerated.

So gville70, the substance of your argument is that I will be dead soon. Perhaps, but not today. With the absence of ANY intelligent thought, no defense of YOUR ideology you revert to wishing death for somebody who frustrates you and who you couldn't possibly win an argument against even on your most 'enlightened' day. I'll never stoop so low as to call you what I believe you are...by that remark, I think most everybody here is fully aware of your character without any help from me. You have traded any credibility you thought you may have had for a demonstration of untethered hate. Congratulations, silly lib, your true colors are flying for all to see.

gville70, and your post is just filled with juicy details? I say we will see the almighty Obama go it alone as that is where his support will be, on his own. He has cost the democrats the chance to stay in office. He has given away the House of reps and is now on the verge of relinquishing the senate. If his policies all add up to popular demands then why I ask are the democrats all losing their seats? Lets hear your substantive answers to that.

TOT you righties scream the loudest because you have nothing of substance to say.. Its a sad swan song and kinda painful to watch.. I posted 5 years ago that we would see crying and screaming next election and sadly we are still dealing with the same denial and excuses.. Bob will be dead soon so TOT and patriot will have to console each other

OMG!! This may be the best quote yet..."Eric Cantor was the spokesman for LIBERAL IDEAS." And Fedup...tell me you honestly can't see the irony of your last post. Bob...imo, the gop was much more responsible for Romney's defeat than the Dems. Then the final blow, as Hill mentioned was Paul Ryan, whose solution to reducing the deficit falls on the backs of lower and middle class americans.

TOT A liberal would vote for a Romney middle of the roader but not for his baggage, Paul Ryan.

gville70, what you are looking at are real, very upset and ready to do battle to right this sinking ship. You think that the people that care about the future of our country are the problem? It looks to me like you have swallowed the progressive liars hook line and sinker. The haters are actually in Office, right now. Eric Cantor was a self defined Tea party member, he was the spokesman for LIBERAL IDEAS and surrendered to the demands of the true haters, the progressives. I cannot wait for the MIDTERMS, even liberal republicans are going to go curbside for pickup!

I believe that the problem in the past and likely to continue is there is LITTLE DIFFERENCE between a liberal republican like Romney and progressive democrats. Policies are the same and the changes would be insignificant. I myself will vote in an instant for a candidate that stands against EVERYTHING that the left has done for the past 5+ years. It concludes that liberalism is NOT a solution just a whole new load of problems.

You need a realistic alternative first before you engage anything. That seem to be a chronic problem with the GOP. You can't lead unless you have people to follow. "Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way", was George Steinbrenner's motto. It worked for the Yankees.

Part of the answer, Hill, is many of us do not blindly follow 'shiny objects'. Another part is Romney lost due his failure to engage the Obama ideology and clearly present an alternative other than 'we're not like him'. As you know, the political pendulum never stops but takes time to swing and the trick is to have patience and realize that, momentum being what it is, instant political gratification doesn't last very long.

With all the reasons given against supporting a progressive/lib, why can't the opposition find a "leader" that they can agree upon? BoB, let me remind you that if Romney wasn't forced to wear the Paul Ryan albatross around his neck in 2012 he would be president today.

Another hate filled, uneducated and irrelevant post from a looney leftie. No positive posts defending their leader, no positive posts on the record of the tax and spend liberal elitists. Just uneducated, uninformed drivel and outright lies. Way to go! Keep posting it - it shows your level of thinking and education.

You're right laker, I sure hope this latest primary win worries the h*ll out of the progressive wing of the GOP and by extension, lib/progressives. By some of the comments, it sure bothers the resident libs on this forum. Good, it should.

Laker, the Taxed Enough Already idea is simply that...an idea, a conclusion. No National Headquarters, no 'leaders' you can attack, only those of us, individually, who firmly believe we are Taxed enough, already. If you believe that conclusion, you simply believe it...if you don't, you are free to criticize the idea but to be consistent you also must voluntarily contribute more of YOUR money to the Big-Government cause. Are you willing to do that or, like many of us, are you taxed enough already?

Remember a couple weeks ago when top progressives were declaring the tea party over... ask Eric Cantor if he believes that the tea party has weakened... about the same weakness that Obama portrayed about the al Qaeda demise. It ain't over till its over... and it ain't over!

FedUp0416: "I did believe him when he said I could keep my doctor PERIOD." Dr Bluvas is still seeing all of his previous patients, so what's your beef?

You forgot Obama read about Fast and Furious in the paper too. My real concern is if he is not getting better intelligence than from the media, who is actually running America? I sometimes wonder what roll Valerie Jarret plays. Diane Fienstein, and other Democrats would have blocked the switch of terrorists.

Right before Bush, with the almost complete support from Congress, including Hillary Clinton, marched into Baghdad, trucks were reported leaving Iraq headed towards Syria. Did anyone think the ask where Syria got all the WMDs that they are using on their citizens at this time? Just wondering.

ADMman: I did believe him when he said I could keep my doctor PERIOD. I did believe him when he said I could keep my health plan PERIOD. I did believe him when he said it was a video that caused the death of our ambassador, I did believe him when he said he learned about the IRS scandal the same why we did - through the news. I did believe him when he said there isn't a "smidgen" of scandal at the IRS yet they continue to plead the 5th. I did believe him when he said he was unaware of the waiting list problem at the VA. And ADMman: The only thing I am ashamed of is our president.

You righties are assuming Bergdahl is a deserter and a traitor. Really? How do you know that? You don't. Typical of you, you jump to conclusions. The right thing to do was to get Bergdahl back, and now let the military sort it out. If he was a deserter, so be it, and handle it.

A cruise missile? Really?

And yes, bringing up Bush and Cheney is valid because of their lies about WMDs. Bush invaded Iraq despite protests from our weapons inspectors and our allies about there being no proof of WMDs. And there wasn't. And 4,500 Americans died because of it, to say nothing off all those wounded and maimed. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for believing that war criminal yet you refuse to believe anything our present commander-in-chief does. Amazing.

But Patriot, you won't have to wait that long to watch the greatest show on earth...when the GOP Presidential primary takes their travelling sideshow nationwide. Granted, the last time will be a hard act to follow with Herman, Bachmann, Perry, Newt et al, and of course Sarah! But I'm betting with Teddy Cruz and his gang we still might be in for some great entertainment. My hope is that they don't ruin a viable gop candidate.
