I’ve listened to this mewling bunch of whiners tell us they’re “one-half of one-third” until I can stand it no longer. It’s true that Obama was re-elected, and it’s true that Harry Reid still runs the Senate, but it’s also true that Republicans still control the House, and it’s about damned time they begin to behave like it. All, I repeat ALL, spending and taxing measures must originate in the House. This is no time for tears, and no situation for surrender. If we are to hold off these statist loons, we must begin now, and we must begin here, at the cliff’s edge. These slack-jawed losers-in-waiting had better understand reality, if they can see it through all of those tears: You were sent to Congress to STOP OBAMA, and I’m sick and tired of Republicans who have all the spine of overcooked spaghetti, and who will not live up to THEIR mandate. I’m not one to cast unnecessary or pointless profanity into the public sphere, but you squishy whiners in the House had better get your acts together. I have one message for House Republicans: SACK UP or GET OUT!
If you’re not willing to do the work you were elected to do, I expect you to tender your resignations now. Conservatives no longer wish to listen to the excuses. If you surrender on taxes to make a deal with Herr Obama, you will be blamed when the economy goes into recession. If you refuse, and he plunges us over this so-called “fiscal cliff,” you’ll be blamed. So be it. You’re going to be blamed either way, so you might just as well summon the testicular fortitude to do what is right and stand on a principle. My apologies to the ladies in the House Republican Caucus, but I think some of you are more capable of leading, and you’ll need to do so, because you’re surrounded by Republican eunuchs. They haven’t the equipment or the gumption to do what is needed, but a few among your number have.
You people have let this thug-in-chief control the narrative for far too long. While he and his henchmen have castigated Republicans for the alleged “war on women,” he’s been conducting a real war on America. It’s time you say so. While you permit him to get away with alleging that all of your opposition owes only to his race, you’ve let his party machine toss out one of your number who happened to be an African-American, and it’s not coincidental that none of you seem all too unhappy about it, because he dared to oppose some of your deal-making.
Back in 2011, as your so-called “speaker” was making deals with Harry and Barry behind closed doors, selling-out both principle and country, you sat on your hands and made no fuss as this entire debacle was shoved down your throats. You took it. You let it happen. You went along with it. Now, some sixteen months later, you’re surprised to find Obama still controlling the situation? If you rest on your laurels, as you did throughout the campaign season of 2012, what did you think would be the likely result? Your short-sighted deal-making of July 2011 has set this stage, and you’re to be held responsible for it.
Now the president intends to run the table on you, and your answer is “Let’s make a deal?” DEAL??? Let me tell you the real deal, and let’s make it clear: Do you remember in 2006, when you lost the House? 2014 is right around the corner, and if you don’t find your stones for this fight, you might just as well go home. In fact, why wait? If you’re unwilling to make a stand now, why don’t you simply surrender altogether? Why don’t you quit your nifty offices, with all your staff and goodies, and make a run for the border…of your home state?
This is not good enough. It’s not nearly good enough. The “fiscal cliff” is a joke. The monetary cliff is real, and the money-printing must stop, but the only way to do that is for you to put the brakes on it. ALL spending and taxing measures must originate in the House. Simply don’t originate any. Why aren’t you out in front of the White House making a spectacle? Why aren’t you down there marching and yelling? When will you learn that if you don’t have the ball anyway, you might just as well keep it in his court and let him field it? I’ll tell you why: You people have grown too comfortable, and besides, he’ll let your pet earmarks through so long as he can get his agenda into law. It’s time to set all this aside now. Where are your tears for the US Constitution, the destruction of which you are enabling?
Dare this president to spend one nickel without your authorization. Dare him to spend one cent beyond the debt ceiling. Dare him. Where is your courage? Will you stand for nothing? Will you fall for anything? When will you realize that this clown can only make traction when you let him? He is impotent if you take the purse away. Impotent. If he tries, impeach him for high crimes and misdemeanors. There’s simply no other purpose for which you exist in your offices. If you fold, there will be no coming back, and there’s no time to argue about it. If you won’t do what is necessary to preserve this union, then we must replace you. You have compromised your last if you expect to return to office in January 2015.
It’s time for Congressional Republicans to act as though they’re in charge of the House, and if they won’t stand, we must send them home. What is the point in fighting to have a majority that once installed will not fight for the principles on which it was elected to lead? Even now, Obama is trying to incite public support for his legislative tax-and-print agenda, but what is John Boehner doing?
This madness needs to end, but it won’t end until the adults in the room learn to say “no” and stick to it. Who will be the adults? It will need to be we conservatives. We conservatives need to think of this entire situation as an emergency, and as a war, but rather than become despaired at the current situation, we need to think in terms of warfare. That’s how the enemy thinks, and until we realize that it is only the outcry of we conservatives who can make these cowardly Republicans in Congress fetch some resolve, we’re going to be in for a tough time. The country is not nearly so overwhelmed as these election results might indicate if viewed only through the lenses of whining losers. We need to buck-up first, and then we need to hold Congressional Republicans’ feet to the fire, and we need to let them hear us. If we don’t do it, who will? If now is not the time to stand, when shall we?
