More Murky Strategery From the GOP Establishment


All the Chiefs on the right seem to think they are really good at strategery. Most aint, just like the guy who coined the phrase. Too damn clever by half.

This morning 16 wise guys, Senators from the GOP, voted for cloture on the gun-grabber’s bill. They had their reasons, camera chasers like Goober Graham and McCain or cowardice as we saw from Toomey. Most claim it is a strategy, alleging some advantage will be forthcoming in the ’14 elections. Is it just me or did can-kicking and giving in get the GOP whupped in 2012?

Didn’t I hear the same crap from the girly Maine dipsheets on O-care? “It deserves an up or down vote.” And then when it came to the debate, the cowards would not even use the legitimate procedural tactics that were available. The Donks used every tactic, legal and otherwise to rip the heads off their opponents and cram Obamacare down the neck of every American. Republican leaders? They were just happy to get home for Christmas on a promise to fight really, really hard when they came back.

How about we go with the Cruz strategy . . . on pretty much everything? Fight over every legitimate point. Quit pretending that giving ground is strategic. Quit worrying about the public outcry for bi-partisanship. Winning is what matters and you do not win by losing ground. It’s not like the Democrats ever give up or give in on anything. So how about the GOP quits with the candy-ass strategy? There’s a better way for those with courage and a can-opener.

Those 16 Republicans can go to hell. They’re no better than other certain GOP strategists, so smart and strategic that they jumped ship to support a worthless daddy’s girl against the GOP primary winner. Why . . .why such a murky strategy? Because THEIR nest was threatened, that’s why. Oh Alaska, so rich and yet so poor. I know, this is old news but still relevant to today’s developments.

While I am on a rant, there’s way too many useless right-side blogs out there, run by marginal personalities with a primary interest of filling their tip jars. I suspect they are too lazy or lacking in talent to get a real job. Like so many Senators.

You know them both by the jealous way they guard their turf.

This was just brought to my attention. Boehner may violate Hastert rule on voting.

Well, in order to obtain all of the necessary information from your doctor and other associated medical enterprises that the oh-so-conservative Senator Toomey thinks should be provided in order to check your ….background….it will be necessary to retain some of the finer features of Obamacare, such as electronic medical records and sharing of same with Big Bro. So let’s just quit all the phoney baloney campaign rhetoric about repealing O’care, while we’re at it, Republican caucus. Say, let’s have some bipartisan study groups, to work together to come up with cool ways to make all this….work. In fact, instead of… Read more »

I share your contempt of the wise guys and their strategery. The Republicans have a Governor in 30 States, and yet only 10 States have both of their US Senators voting against cloture. Two of those 10 States, Arkansas and Kentucky, has a Democrat Governor. There are 28 States where both Senators voted for cloture, and they include Tennessee, Georgia, and Arizona. Lately the movie Hunger Games is looking like the current reality our country has become. It’s depressing.

Sen Toomey needs to look up the definition of “quisling.” If this bill passes with what’s in it…he and every Republican who votes for it, is one. Collaborators. With the Enemy. And make no mistake, the Democrat Party – which should be called the Socialist/Communist/Fascist Party. Everything they’ve done for the past 20 yrs is under this type of governance; Barack Obama was just the final push for getting their entire agenda in place. People may now (or not) realize that Obamacare is actually very intrusive and fascist in an ordinary citizen’s life. Freedom, which so many of us once… Read more »
