I had something else I was working on to post, awaiting confirmation of something; and I run into THIS.

We have been had.
Once again, the Congressional Republicans have rolled over on us. Short form, Obama wants the payroll tax cut renewed to avoid blatantly raising the amount of money taken out of the paychecks of the smaller proportion of Americans who still have jobs, just before the election. The Republican stand was that the payroll tax cut would have to be made up with spending cuts somewhere. The Democrats insist that there is not a single cent of spending that can be cut; even with a $1.33 TRILLION deficit this year alone.
Rather than fight, Boehner just announced that he will give Obama his tax cut to take credit for just before the election, and demand absolutely nothing in return; because the media will say nasty things about them if they stand up to Obama. Read and either weep or rage, as the spirit moves you.
In the article, McConnell says that they need to stand and fight. Sir Rurik and a number of others here will recognize the term Maskirova. It was just a few days ago that this linguini-spined [with apologies to good Italian pasta], inbred stack of rancid meat was stating that they could not stand and fight over anything until after the election [if such actually takes place]. Now he wants to pretend that he has a pair. He does, but they produce estrogen. And honorable female members of our species should be taking offense at his abuse of an honest hormone.
News Flash. The bastards are taking turns. No matter what the issue is, either the Institutional Republican House or the Institutional Republican Senate will cave. There is more variety in the Senate, in that there is a core group of soganante Republicans who will sometimes take their turn at collaborating with the Democrats to give McConnell cover. But we have seen that for the last couple of decades, and especially since 2010; that the Institutional Republicans have absolutely no intention of defeating the Democrats on any issue. Or making a case for doing so to the American people. Their primary goal of late is to keep the TEA Party/Patriot movement from winning.
This election cycle, if completed, needs to have a different focus perhaps than the Institutionals want. Especially if the Institutionals force the nomination of Romney. If we can replace Obama with someone who is not going to continue his policies [“Mr. Romney, that means you are disqualified.”] we do so. But there needs to be an emphasis on Congress. We need to replace Democrats, and Institutionals with Patriots. And no, being a member of the Republican Party does not automatically qualify. If there is a Patriot primary opponent to an Institutional Republican, supporting them is as important as supporting a Democrat’s opponent in the General.
And November 7, if the election takes place on the 6th, and earlier if it does not; we have got to leave the Institutional Republicans and create a Patriot Party where we can turn our backs on each other without fear of pointed objects.

I simply wait and watch for what I believe is coming to this country and the rest of the world…..history will bear this out, for we never learn, each generation convinced somehow this is new and improved. Well, I’m old enough to remember when I saw that movie before….. I do not believe the RINOS care about this country any… Read more »
And more: “Congressman John Boehner, the House Speaker better known for displays of weeping than of courage, is reportedly cutting a deal with Eric Holder which would provide a ‘mutually satisfactory’ outcome in Barack Obama’s criminal, gun running endeavor Operation Fast and Furious.” -Doug Book, Western Center for Journalism But that’s not all!

Ran into something today about the payroll tax cut that I missed last week. Surprise! Borrower get to pay for payroll-tax holidays (via Hot Air) It boils down to if you get a mortgage in the next 10 years, your $600 tax savings will cost you $9500. Of course the money from these fees will not go to SS to… Read more »
Almost forgot to mention, that Chinese Serenity quote was a bitch to track down. I thought it was an incomplete link to something.
Excellent observation, Subotai, it really does seem as if Boner and McCuntface are taking turns playing “bad cop” so they always have a shield of “there’s nothing we can do!” to retreat behind. Anyway, I stopped having any sorts of hopes for those two nithlings a long time ago. They need to be replaced soonest as they are utterly useless.… Read more »
I think to put an end to all this shit of entitled power, we should have term limits in both houses that max out at 12 years service. Two terms senate and six terms house. Or whatever combination that does not exceed the twelve year maximum. I think that would be as fair as can be. You take the position… Read more »
Emperor Misha I says: Actually, worse than useless in that they provide an illusion that there are Republicans in charge. I believe they’re worse than the ‘providers of illusions’. They are more Kapo than collaborator. Ones who piously tell us these horrific lies. Letting Holder and the WH off the hook for Fast and Furious would be tragic to Agent… Read more »
I hear that JB. They’d serve their country better as degrading biomass.
BTW,, Who’s using the Imperial Chipper these days?
Why is it I often despise the RINOS more than the lefty democrats?
Might it be that the leftys are at least up front about their agenda, while the RINOS work at the same thing in attempted secrecy?
