McConnell Next? I doubt It [CBD]

GOP Representative: Mitch McConnell 'Next Guy in the Crosshairs'

It's a nice thought, but I don't see it happening, other than quiet rumblings in back rooms. And please, please, please....make me eat my words!

"People are frustrated with out[sic] Republican leadership, with Boehner and McConnell, and it's not usually the third or fourth question that comes up -- it's the first question that comes up," Representative Marlin Stutzman (R., Ind.), who voted against Boehner in January, told National Review last week. "It's happening at tea-party events, but it's [also] happened at Republican breakfasts, it's happening at donor meetings -- there's a deep frustration."

Representative Trent Franks holds the same view, but believes that it can be relieved by the elimination of the filibuster rather than a change in leadership. "Unfortunately, the Republican base and even many esoteric Republican observers are not truly cognizant of how the Democrats' insidious use of the filibuster is beginning to tear the House conference apart," Franks said.

Please keep in mind that Boehner is not gone yet.

He has 35 days to wreak havoc alongside obama and reid.

Boehner, I believe, is fixing on doing Very Bad Things in the next 5 weeks.

17 For years I talked about the republican party as if I was speaking to someone who needed harsh advice, and with increasing frustration -- "you need to do this... if you only did that." I finally realized that they don't WANT to do those things (also of course that they cannot, i.e., do not have the courage and imagination). The only hope for the GOP is a radical reformist republican president who eviscerates them from the inside -- purges everybody and starts over.

26 I'm pretty sure that if the Senate and house had presented a united conservative leaning front-

and got rid of the filibuster or at the very least make the Democrats conduct a verbal filibuster then vote to get their bill anyway after the filibuster ended-

and, this is important, actually presented an annual budget because it's their freaking job.

and used every single ounce of their Constitutional power-

and used every means available to push their "promised to the voters" agenda through-

they may not have totally stopped Obama but they damn sure could've tied him in knots and

gotten some of their promised to the voters agenda through

and they wouldn't be in this mess of their own making.

So, it's too late now. Fuck'em.

All the leadership needs to lose it's power and we should demand no less.

Both McConnell and Boehner and their lieutenants could've and should've been using their peanut-brains

to figure out how to frustrate Obama and the Dims

instead of concocting the next edition of Failure Theater-

Fuck those lazy lying backstabbing fucks

At first I was quite disappointed when the Speak announced his resignation, but now I am rather angry: he has recklessly emboldened those among congressional Republicans who sabotage their own parties majority for selfish gain.

The next Speaker must make crystal clear that the antics Boehners endured, wont be tolerated any longer. Its ridiculus and embarrassing that such a small minority is allowed to dictate the course of the conference. It must end now.

Okay, so the mayor of Boston wants raise parking meter fees (to $7/hr) to ease traffic congestion in the city. Genius, eh? He's going to solve the problem by making it less convenient to come to the city. If you want to come to Boston, you can walk, ride a bike, take public transportation, or take a cab, I guess.

(He has since denied it will be $7/hr).

The old mayor of Boston, Mumbles Menino removed 2/3rds of the city's metered spaces, btw, for bike lanes and wider sidewalks and just for the hell of it.

The scary part is that Congress under Boner and the Turtle has voluntarily neutered itself. No Reichstag Fire or Enabling Act was necessary. Who would have predicted that ten years ago?

So they're perfectly willing to be the lackeys of a dictator to protect the "institution" and their perks, but mostly their perks.

From the f*cking AP: "EPA seeks to thwart cheating. In a letter to car manufacturers, the EPA said it will add on-road testing to its regimen, using 'driving cycles and conditions that may reasonably be expected to be encountered in normal operation and use, for the purposes of investigating a potential "defeat device" similar to the one used by Volkswagon. The testing would be in addition of the standard emissions tests already in place.'

Regaining control over the legislature over the course of over four years should amount to at least *stopping* the Left's agenda. Instead we haven't really even slowed it.


Last time the GOP held the legislature and the WH, we got...more spending and bigger government.

231 Yes, CBD, it really sounds nice to imagine that Bitch McConnell would follow The Weeper out the door. Him and, say, 534 other members of the most destructive -- and yet pathetic -- Congress in American history.

Collectively, they have done Choom Boy's bidding, and thus have inflicted maximum damage on the nation's security, financial health and every other aspect of our lives they could stick their pork-stained fingers into. And they have managed to do all that while still making time to preen and play "statesman" in front of the cameras.

Contrast the good they have done -- essentially none at all -- with their other actions and you have a group of people who would, in a sane society, be in jail or at local homeless shelters instead of parading around D.C.

Some showed promise when they were first elected -- Issa, Gowdy, Cruz, Rubio, Baby Paul, etc. -- and others hit town already known as crooks and layabouts.

It is, alas, the system that needs fixing, and that won't happen when a single "leadership" position changes hands. I'd love to see The Bitch go, too, but he, like the rest of the scum in D.C., is too entrenched to be threatened by ouster. Only law-enforcement can save us.

One, they are 'on leave' while vacation, sick and personal days are calculated. They are not allowed on the premises.

Two, all passwords, email notifications, etc. are immediately disabled.

Three, as a courtesy, they may be allowed to clean out their own offices. Usually not. The company does the clearing.

369 "That's a possibly, but the VP could tell him to suck his dick. He can not force him to resign."


No, he/she can't. But, going against the Party would mean no dollars in the afterlife. Fight for VP seat for what exactly in the face of Congressional prosecution?

371 "For the children" is going to need a asterisk, something along the lines of:

*Please note that exceptions may apply, such the unborn, those in Muslim countries, and those who don't want to share a bathroom or lockerroom with a non-transitioned "trans" person.


A dude is still a dude even if you mangle him with surgery and pills.

One who doesn't have a gun or has run out of bullets?
After that it's a homemade pike. Swords and knives are too close in.

375 As CNN's cameras awaited the pope's entry, a woman in the crowd, with a noticeable Southern accent, could be heard saying that she planned to "take my shoe and throw it at his head."

376 I always thought that clueless, amoral people who get shuffled to the top are somewhat attractive, how Mitch landed in his current position totally baffles me.

Definitely. I just find the ones who haven't bothered to take pills or have the surgery veeeery suspect.

385 26 I'm pretty sure that if the Senate and house had presented a united conservative leaning front- ...

They are not conservative. They are not insane, either. They have their own agenda which is radically different from what the majority of the people want. They intend to take care of themselves and their friends and they don't give a DAMN what happens to the country or the people outside their in-group.

391 Representative Marlin Stutzman (R., Ind.), who voted against Boehner in January, told National Review last week. "It's happening at tea-party events, but it's [also] happened at Republican breakfasts, it's happening at donor meetings -- there's a deep frustration."

I'll know the frustration is fully realized when people abandon "breakfasts" and "donor meetings". You want to send a message? Quit attending. Alas, those who keep attending are still trying to buy their way into the corruption.

The Uniparty delenda est.

THIS. But to stop whatever gang rape of the Republic he, McCarthy, his other capos, McConnell & the rest of the GOPe have planned for the next 6 weeks. Remember how the drunken Oompa Loompa fucked us all over at the end of last year by making all those craptastic deals with TFG, preventing the new congress from being able to act on a buncha shit?

395 I'm not holding my breath on Mitch going anywhere. When the RNC called for donations to support them as far back as 2008, I told them "No way, not until Mitch and the RINOsaurs are gone. These are the same RINOs that created most of the mess that Bush is blamed for and who lost Congress in 2006. They have no business being in leadership."

Boehner had his issues, however it seems to me that most of the bad traits he's been accused of are really brown-nosing infections John picked up brown-nosing with the RINOsaurs of the Senate.

The retention of the GOP Senate LOSERship RINOsaurs wouldn't be tolerated in any professional sports team -- they'd have been benched and/or retired at least a decade ago because of a poor leadership skills and a total lack of ability to articulate any clear concise marketable message about what they (and the GOP) actually stand for.

Their ineptness at marketing any sort of marketable GOP brand shouldn't be confused with their ability to leverage the filibuster rules to collect crony power (and bucks) -- they generally excel in corrupt crony politicking -- while generally ignoring Main Street and the average working folks...
