    Re: Obama gets an earful in clash with GOP senators

    this was one of the biggest breaking news stories from inside the beltway to go down yesterday, thanks for posting it

    good for ap

    this is the stuff of politics, it's how bigtime stakes are won and lost

    hello

    my question: instead of getting "angry" with senator mccain why didn't obama just reachout, be bipartisan, fulfill his stated purpose for appearing at the gop luncheon, by telling the maverick that yes, indeed, he was gonna put 1200 natl guard on the border?

    why didn't the president just tell senators kyl and mccain to their faces what they wanted to hear, instead of getting "testy" with em?

    an hour later, he ended up sending the guard anyway

    Obama?s Meeting With Republican Senators Called ?Very Tense? - Bloomberg.com

    President Obama clashes with John McCain in Republican luncheon - Manu Raju - POLITICO.com

    unless this bid to beef up the border turns out to be another one of the doof's declarations for a day, like the spending freeze, the bank tax, the debt commission, the offshore drilling...

    obama makes up and changes his mind like a little girl

    pathetic

    I guess it had to happen sooner or later.

    No, only one miracle per freeze.

    Maybe if pigs fly or San Francisco goes Republican.

    Re: Obama gets an earful in clash with GOP senators

    ... it isn't the president's fault that Congress is not bipartisan.

    Bipartisanship is a two way street. If anything, both the Democrats and Republicans would be equally responsible for the lack of it because each believes they deserve more deference than the other is willing to give. I don't believe that is true, because the price the Republicans have set on their cooperation is too high.

    It comes down to votes and the party base. Either the Republican Party heroically struggles to the utmost of their ability against the majority's socialist agenda or they bring the Democrats to their knees and churn out document after document of Republican legislation in spite of the Democratic majority and president. That's the only way to score high in November; perform miracles against the Democratic majority as a minority or struggle valiantly against them. A cooperative Republican Party in this climate is, for them, political suicide.

    Re: Obama gets an earful in clash with GOP senators

    we couldn't go along with the stimulus, it was a pig, we knew

    we couldn't go along with his health care, it's an unpaid for disaster

    we can't support cap and trade, killer taxes on energy, production and consumption, in the midst of our collective depression

    his approach to terror is trying ksm downtown, mirandizing mutallab, prosecuting cia agents who flipped our enemies

    he's had to back away himself from most of it

    he has no foreign policy aside from his escalation of afghanistan which most of us support (even tho the enemy who attacked us on 9-11 are mostly in pakistan)

    how could anyone back him when he has no answer for iran, none for the cartels (except blaming americans), when all he does in palestine is piss off aipac

    he's an international doormat

    hillary's in china, are you following her trip, hu's getting aggressive in disputed waters, equivocating about kim, refusing to renogiate the currency (which bernanke points to as prime cause of our economic collapse, the inequitable valuation, that is)

    are you aware his party is putting forth no budget this year

    are you reading the spot he's put congress in, he wants spending but he can't put his name on any paper requesting funds, he wants them to take the initiative and all the accountability

    his own congress isn't even going along

    you want the links, they're all over politico

    have you noticed how global warming has died as an issue, did you read the new york times two days ago, did you see how the un moved it down on its priorities

    we can't go along with his silly science, gore like

    neither could copenhagen

    he crammed his health care, came within a day of actually deeming it

    blame is for little girls, no one really cares

    accountability's a better word

    NO is sufficient to win us an awful lot of gubs, house seats, maybe control of the senate

    if we don't take the institutions coming close is just as good

    the entire establishment will get the message

    he needed to write a health care that could gain broad support

    he needed to do a cap and trade his own party could back

    where's his comprehensive immigration reform

    it won't sell, that's where it is

    so he sends 1200 to arizona, characteristically half baked and half assed

    etc

    So in short - He's an epic failure!

    Re: Obama gets an earful in clash with GOP senators

    The Democrats have won the last couple elections with circus acts and tricks.
    In the 2006 mid-terms they rode Foley's text messages harder than an escaped convict in a whore house.
    Then they pulled out the Obama-wabbit from the hat. Ears and all. Of course you need a pliant press, and man did they have one.
    They promoted the circus act in a manner that must have Barnum & Bailey looking on with amazement and envy.

    The tricks, shell games and slight of hand are running out for Democrats...and every so often Americans have to learn the hard way.
    It's obvious the learning curve was pretty fast. Thanks Rush for being the equivalent of a nuclear ice-breaker. In a way he's a lot like Lech Walesa.

    What next?
    First step is to install Republicans to repeal the Obama/Madoff Healtchcare Scheme, and block Obama's efforts towards making this the USSA.
    The next step is to install people that have the ability to lead, and aren't hostile to our Constitution.

    Looks like we are well on our way to accomplish Part 1.

    Republicans Jump Out To Historic Lead In Gallup

    Republicans Jump Out To Historic Lead In Gallup Generic
    Gallup's generic polling shows the number of voters saying that they would vote for Republicans:

    Rising three points from last week while the number saying they will vote for Democrats dropped four points.
    The 49%-43% lead for the Republicans is the largest that the pollster has ever recorded for the party.
    Moreover, Democratic enthusiasm for voting this fall fell a point, while enthusiasm among Republicans stayed about fifteen points higher.
    This indicates an even wider lead for Republicans once Gallup imposes a likely voter screen this fall.
    "Historic Lead"... beautiful music...

    Yahoo, Brietbart, HuffPo and others are firmly legitimate in MSM IF they are simply reposting an AP piece and its clearly denoted that its an AP piece. Such as this one.

    If you think something violates the rules, REPORT IT. Otherwise focus on the topic, not playing mod or complaining about mod action.
    ...and the horse you rode in on!! LOL Go git 'em, Z!
