    Keeping hope alive

    Keeping hope alive

    Isn’t that what this all is about at this moment in time?

    We just have to last another 18 months and win the presidential election, and then our long national nightmare will come to an end.  Until then, we’re just trying to limit the damage.

    Until he put forth his “plan,” Mitch McConnell was on the right track

    You can’t make a “big deal” with this President and this Senate.  The best you can do is limit the damage done by the (Nancy)-Harry-Barack tag team.

    McConnell’s plan wasn’t damage control; to the contrary, it made Republicans participants in the continuing damage. 

    There is a way out, spending constraints short of an overhaul of entitlements and no tax increases.  At the end of the day, Obama will have to take it. 

    And if he doesn’t, the damage is on him.

    Rush has come out with a good point, we are not trying to assign blame, we are trying to save the country. Thus, this proposal should be thrown out and Mr. McConnell asked not to come back. We need people who are just going to say no.

      Assigning blame is inevitable whether we want it or not. The Republicans must win this political battle or Obama will get a second term. That would be disastrous for the Country. It looks like bad things are likely to happen. Republicans must make sure Obama gets the blame when they do. That will not be easy; Republicans must be very careful here.

    McCain praises McConnell’s backup debt plan. What could possibly go wrong?

    “We just have to last another 18 months and win the presidential election…”

    …Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Sure we have to win the presidential election, but we also have to win the election with a quality conservative. A simple “R” will not be sufficient.

    We need to prevent the media from forcing a nominee on us who we do not want.

    We need to make sure conservatives (not republicans) retain/win house and senate races.

    We need a lot.

    We have a man in the White House who is acting like a tyrant.

    He is creating law through executive order or through his puppets enacting regulation within agencies without actual law backing up these regulations.

    He is going to war without even the pretense of going before Congress for declaration of War Powers.

    And with the blessings of McConnell the President is assuming the Power of the Purse, Congress’ duty and obligation.

    Our Founders threw off the shackles of a tyrant who at least had to go before Parliament to enact taxes. We are now coming to enthrone King Barry with the power to engage us in debt to foreign nations and spend money that doesn’t exist, wage war and create law, all without even a “by your leave” to Congress or the American people.

    Are you sure that we won’t read next year in the Washington Post how scholars who think Sarah Palin is stupid see an interpretation in the 14th Amendment that gives King Barry the title of Tyrant For Life?
