Of course Republicans (ok, only most of them) are ready to denounce Grover Norquist’s (Americans for Tax Reform) tax pledge. This fiscal cliff makes good theater, but it’s so tired. They’ve extended the debt ceiling a ba-zillion times before.
The RINOs, the lib-tards and frankly most in both parties operate solely for their own benefit (power, money, re-election *you choose the order*). So are we surprised so many Republicans are caving again? NO, but Grover Norquist is no Sunday-school teacher in fact, he is a radical Islamist substantiated by this, this and this.
I hated that conservatives and the Tea Party were successfully marginalized at the RNC in August by those sneaky little rule changes (that some say were only housekeeping items), and this is what we get. RINOs are being RINOs and we shouldn’t be surprised when nothing changes. After all John Boehner, crier of the house -was reelected to lead the miserable Republican Party again!
Sidebar: God Bless Louis Gohmert, Texas congressman & conservative for at least trying. He nominated Newt Gingrich as Speaker of the House, but didn’t get anywhere. (no you don’t have to be a member of the House to be Speaker).
I wanted to blow things up the day after the election when I heard John Boehner in effect saying:
“The election is over. Obamacare is the law of the land and we may be willing to look at revenue enhancements if we get enough cuts.”
Tell the blank-ity-blank truth! Just say it, you mean tax increases!! You’re ready to cave in order to get re-elected.
They’re actually talking Jeb Bush for 2016. Gimme shelter. And they wonder why they lost!
