It shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone that the establishment of both parties, the Ruling Class as described by the American Spectator, really have few differences. We’ve had examples of that this week with Boehner’s so-call spending cuts. After examination, it’s been found that actual cuts are less then $10Bn because the CR deal included money unspent from last year by the 2010 Census and some projects that were to be killed anyway—cuts already planned and approved by Obama and congressional leaders.
The whole CR deal is a fraud.
The dems are escatic. The deal just reinforced what the “insiders” already knew. The ‘pub establishment is not all that much different from the dems.
Oh, those elections last fall? That don’t matter according to Nancy Pelosi. She urges the ‘pubs to take back their party from those interfering Tea Partiers.
To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors. Because there are so many things at risk right now — perhaps in another question I’ll go into them, if you want. But the fact is that elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do…But when it comes to a place where there doesn’t seem to be shared values then that can be problematic for the country, as I think you can see right now. — The Weekly Standard, April 12, 2011.
Boehner and other ‘pub congressional leaders say that the CR doesn’t really matter. The big effort is the 2012 budget and Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposal.
I don’t believe them. If the ‘pubs didn’t have enough backbone to stand up for their campaign promise to cut $100Bn this year, why should be believe they’ll have the backbone to standup to the dems, MSM, and the rest of the socialists when that plan cuts Trillions?
Frankly, I don’t. Come 2012, we must remove the rest of the ‘pub establish and elect more Tea Partiers and take control of the Republican Party root, trunk, branch and leaf.
John Boehner, if he had one iota of a conscience, would resign and go back to Ohio.
Just to give some perspective to the money we’re talking about, here, again, is Michael Ramirez’s cartoon from earlier this week.
