The Speaker: Simon Says….Cave In
Every hour, you get the update: Obama will not move, he will tax the rich or ELSE— Boehner says Obama will not come to the table. We are going off the fiscal cliff–
We watch and listen while the guys making big bucks say, “Well then GO OVER the cliff and let them own it!” Easy for them to say…none of THEM are going anywhere but to their Cayman bank accounts.
Stalemate, checkmate, Do not pass Go, and by the way…you just landed on Boardwalk and I have hotels…
I tend to agree with the people who say it’s all kabuki theater, or more akin to a Charles Dickens rerun at Uncle Scrooge’s mansion; because everyone knows, we are going to get slammed with big taxes next year–all of us that are WORKING.
It doesn’t matter what Boehner or Obama do—both are working for the same goals: amnesty, higher taxes, keep the stocks up, and then get the hell out of dodge. Talk, talk, talk, talk, and spend, spend, and while you’re at it, sell off a few assets…like the Grand Canyon.
Wait…the Clintons already did that.
I’m having trouble even listening to Boehner talk a good game. He sure sounds believable. He’s a regular Gingrich with a puppy dog face. Gingrich was the same way–back in 1994, when the Republicans got control of the house for the first time in forty years, Gingrich was God, with his “Contract with America.” He really inspired the tea party members of his day, only to stab them all in the back.
You never heard about it, but, that’s just what Gingrich did. You see, the Speaker of the House controls all the cards in that house. Back in 1994, a group of freshman representatives called a meeting to hold Gingrich’s feet to his own contract, because Gingrich was caving into Clinton on most of the very contract that he wrote himself! Then he got them in a room, and made it known to them all, that if they continued to pursue the issues, they would all find themselves back home next election. It was threat…and some of them were so disgusted they quit after their term.
And guess who is still around?
Boehner is doing the same thing. Right after the election Boehner said the tea party was dead.
Well..not quite, he had a few left to get rid of:
Boehner caught the wrath of the right this week after he and fellow GOP leaders, including Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan, purged four fiscally conservative representatives from the Financial Services Committee and the Budget Committee. Rep. David Scheweikert (R-AZ), Walter Jones (R-NC), Justin Amash (R-MI), and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) were all booted from their positions on the committees.
Some of those booted are in shock and would like to know what “crimes were committed” by those removed from their posts.
The Speaker said that this had absolutely nothing to do with conservative ideology and specifically referenced “voting patterns.” “There may be more folks that will be targeted … we’re watching all your votes.”
Gee…he’s WATCHING all your votes? Sounds like something Obama would say. Maybe John should take up basketball instead of watching the votes. Let the men represent their states John…go play golf.
“America faces a very serious problem. And our goal is to make sure it gets solved. We have a debt problem that is out of control. We’ve got to cut spending and I believe that it’s appropriate to put revenues on the table.”
READ HIS LIPS—spending won’t be cut.
AND…every hour we hear from all the pundits on cable— Will Hillary run? Eric Holder? Rubio? Nobody will beat Hillary…yadada…
It’s as if they want you to accept that you’re screwed until the next election, and hey…just accept it.
America has no hope unless these entrenched criminal elite leader from both parties are thrown out…but nothing short of a Mayan doomsday prophesy is going to accomplices that.
I’m just sayin…”Please Mister Scrooge…can I keep some of my bread..plesase?”
