Business as Usual or Elected Terrorists

labrea_gwApril 27, 2012

No Honeymoon period no potential for bi partisan ship not a single patriot among them I posit that planned obstructionism that some of you denied from the git go, Was little different than flying planes into the WTC.

"Attending the dinner were House members Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, Dan Lungren, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Pete Sessions. From the Senate were Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign and Jon Kyl. Others present were former House Speaker and future and failed presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and the Republican strategist Frank Luntz, who organised the dinner and sent out the invitations.

The dinner table was set in a square at Luntz's request so everyone could see one another and talk freely. The session lasted four hours and by the end the sombre mood had lifted: they had conceived a plan. They would take back the House in November 2010, which they did, and use it as a spear to mortally wound Obama in 2011 and take back the Senate and White House in 2012, Draper writes.

"If you act like you're the minority, you're going to stay in the minority," said Keven McCarthy, quoted by Draper. "We've gotta challenge them on every single bill and challenge them on every single campaign."

The hate the US crowd on here could'nt get an approval to speak about the stimulus for a year and half without the phony talking points of McConnell..... till McConnell finally conceded that the money he sucked up did his state some good. All the other piggies who promised they wouldn't take a nicke didn't they took millions & millions.
That was just fat head party hacks on here the freeper element kept it up long after the cat was out of the bag & rethugs were openly bluster "Yeah I took stimulus & inhaled deeply".
All those politicians speaking out 1 side of their mouth were posing with big stimulus checks in their districts.
Response on here was typical "well as long as the money is there we should get our share" what can you expect from a bunch of loser who literally plan from day 1 to obstruct.
If any of them have any loyalty oaths they should be fined & tried for acting in bad faith against the business of the nation. I think the rest of us need a very long break from this pack of home grown traitors & terrorists even if their constituents will support this attack.
Reminds me of the SWANSEE CONFRENCE took years to prove that one & what it's real business was! Gingrich was there looks like he was supposed to be it..... huh? Wel he was always in my book.
Well as McConnell explained to the Heritage Foundation the topi Political Priority was to deny Obama a 2nd term.
Not the rhetoric of Country First but the promise of Obstruction, Obstruction & Obstruction which most sane people saw. which most party hacks & their fellow travelers denied again & again & again. Loyalty to Party over nation I suggest may be treasonous. & Frank Luntz & those present should be at least questioned by the FBI and Homeland Security.
Lest make it something ridiculous potential violations of the Interstate Commerce ACT that would be good for starters.
What do I expect well I expect the Rethugs on here will either not respond of wave it off.

Show united and unyielding opposition to the president's economic policies. (Eight days later, Minority Whip Cantor would hold the House Republicans to a unanimous No against Obama's economic stimulus plan.)

Robert Draper's revelation only confirms what was already more than obvious.

Supporters of President Obama's various initiatives were also frustrated by the continuing attempts at building consensus when it was clear that there would be no Republican attempt to cooperate. In the ultimate cynical spinning, the GOP then cited frustration with the president's conciliation as support for its position. By extension, however, the Draper anecdote also negatively reflects on the Obama administration for failing to appreciate how quickly congressional Republicans would oppose the president's agenda.

It will be interesting to follow and read the comments or lack of comments by the forum members regarding this thread discussion - to watch the life or death of this thread.

I think it might be on life support though, Joe.

I am SO glad you posted this labrea. My thoughts were that it's treason. You cannot plot to overthrow the president of the US without consequences.

Not only have we discussed obstructionism, but haven't we actually read the word "impeach" used a few times, as well?

Wasn't there a lot of denying that the "Party of No" was an apt description?

Just as there's a lot of denying that there is a Republican war on women... and gays and immigrants.

You expect conservapedia to comment on this or anything like it. If They can't do a simple Krugman post on fiscal phonies they won't do this.
They like the party they troll for simply say no!

No surprise really...

Lie, distort, derail -- there is no difference between the conservatives in Congress and those here.

No wonder they're silent.
