House Freshmen Torpedo Silly Budget Deal, Dems Cry

Credit where credit is due. I have been a very vocal critic of the Freshman Class of 2010, but this time they have gone and done something good. So, my hat is off.

The Senate deal was so manifestly silly and irresponsible — seriously, a 2-month-only change in the tax code, to go into effect 12 days from today, but it is supposed to save the nation — that conservatives and Freshmen just could not stomach it. It’s a little late to be finding a backbone, but hey, I’ll take it.

In the big March government “shutdown” showdown and the August debt ceiling showdown, Boehner and the House leadership ultimately coopted the Freshmen, leading them to assent to terrrible, terrible deals, convincing them that to take a stand would incur such media wrath, that the nation would be turned against them and they would lose their jobs, along with the House majority, in 2012. You can only imagine how much I hate Boehner’s guts, along with the rest of the House Establishment. But enough of that.

Today, the Freshmen found their voice. They torpedoed that bad deal. And it plumb warmed my heart to hear some of the biggest clowns in Washington crying over this as if the last tax hike had been repealed.

Wicked Witch of the West Nancy Pelosi – It’s just the ridiculous tea party Republicans who are holding up this tax cut for the American people and jeopardizing economic growth.
DNC Chairbitch Debbie Two-Names — extremism at its worst.
WaPo Village Idiot Dana Milbank wails in an OpEd called “Radical Republican Winterfest” — The sophomoric freshmen must have needed their barkeep to serve them another round.
Milbank pouts again — …House Republicans, after championing tax cuts for millionaires, would be voting against a tax cut for ordinary Americans.

All this coming from the bunch who jammed ObamaCare down the throats of “ordinary Americans” who did not want it, using parliamentary tricks, bribery, blackmail and media demagoguery in an 8-month marathon in which they were fully aware of public opinion. These people caused the Tea Party. And they weren’t all that concerned with the finances, freedoms, and well-being of “ordinary Americans” at that time, now where they?

[deep satisfied sigh…….]
I love my life.

The weapons had evolved, but our orders remained the same: Hunt them down and kill them off, one by one. A most successful campaign. Perhaps too successful. For those like me, a Death Dealer, this signaled the end of an era. Like the weapons of the previous century, we, too, would become obsolete.

Pity, because I lived for it.

When it comes down to the establishment GOP House and Senate leadership I am mostly rooting for injuries. Obama and the Dems are still fighting the last war, and this is why it will be an epic fail for them in the 2012 elections. The last war, 2008, had a sitting GOP Senator as the GOP nominee, and Obama and the Dems ran against the evil Republicans in the US Congress and Booooooooosh. 2012 the GOP nominee is a completely different guy than McCain who will not be attached to the DC establishment at all.

It’s too bad the Stupid Party doesn’t have the PR savvy to take this exact argument to the people. Instead, all they know is that the Rs blocked a tax cut.

If they don’t learn to work or work around the media, we’re going to lose forever.

FYI Boehner just did an op-ed on this: “Time for Obama to get involved.”
