Thread: "The Party of No" starts saying, "Yes"

  1. #1

    "The Party of No" starts saying, "Yes"

    The party that’s acted as a bulwark against President Barack Obama’s agenda suddenly looks like it will quickly agree to some of his biggest demands.
    House Republicans are poised to extend the Export-Import Bank’s charter well into next year, despite decrying the agency as an antiquated vestige of crony capitalism. They will fund the federal government until mid-December without much of a fight. And, most notably, they are rapidly moving toward giving the White House authority to arm and train Syrian rebels, despite deep misgivings about their ability to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and even deeper distrust of Obama’s foreign policy.

    And this is all playing out in the final three days of session before Election Day — in a historically unproductive Congress.

    The forthcoming deals represent a big swing on Capitol Hill. Just a year ago, House Republicans were locked in a bitter battle with Obama over repealing his signature health care law, leading to a 16-day government shutdown that left both sides bruised.

    Now — with less than 50 days until the midterms — Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise want nothing to do with Washington and its potential drag on Republicans’ sunny electoral fortunes.

    The calculation, though, shows Boehner is an institutionalist, willing to support the president on the international stage when it comes to matters of war but careful to preserve his party’s political standing. And it shows that Boehner — and his new leadership structure — have found a way to navigate a tumultuous House Republican Conference with relative ease. That’s why, despite doubts, Republican leadership has snapped into action and is giving Obama the ability to go after ISIL in the Middle East.

    But the legislation Boehner will try to pass Wednesday comes with serious strings for Obama. Republicans — chiefly Armed Services Chairman Buck McKeon of California — added language to the proposal that specifically states they will not allow Obama to engage in full-scale combat operations using American troops. To do that, Obama will have to return to Congress for a separate authorization resolution.

    The way in which the GOP leadership team privately handled Obama’s request shows a new level of political maneuvering, balancing Obama’s wants with the constrictions of the House Republican Conference. The leaders held firm against White House demands that the Syria language be inserted directly into a continuing resolution to fund the government. It will instead be voted on as an amendment to the spending package. Boehner’s leadership team tamped down anger from chairmen, who thought the Obama administration’s closed-door classified briefings were disappointing. They inserted language into the bill to tighten the scope of the operations, force the Obama administration to report to Congress every three months about the progress of the operation.

    And Boehner has held firm against conservative hard-liners inside and outside the Capitol who have tried to derail his nonconfrontational approach with the White House. For example, outside groups like Heritage Action have tried to force Boehner to remove the Export-Import Bank extension from the CR — advice he summarily has ignored.

    Boehner’s approach has defused what had the chance of being a massively complex and messy September for Republicans, and his senior GOP colleagues in the House and Senate appreciate the speaker’s maneuvering.

    Our system of government works again! Republicans know that if they keep acting in the reckless manner they have in the past, they won't get elected. So are playing nice because, as it turns out, the majority of the country doesn't like a dysfunctional Congress.

    With all their threats and subsequent cave ins - at this point the Democrats can just sit back and play bridge, knowing the GOP will always cave when push comes to shove.

    So if I go up to Rush and ask him if I can punch him in the face and he says "No" - that really means "yes" and I can whale away.

    Good to know. I hope I get the chance.

    You don't like Rush because he's against the democratic/socialist agenda. There are plenty just like him on your "team".

    No, there are plenty on the right I respect for their views though I disagree with them.

    Rush is simply a hate mongering pimp - but since he started his show the Dems have won 5 out of 6 popular votes for President - so I do applaud his ability to make moderate voters vomit at the sight of tens of millions of conservatives who lick his balls.

    The "popular vote"' argument is weak. The founders foresaw this dilemma and negated it with the electoral college.

    Baloney. The popular vote is indicative where the majority of the People are going politically. Yes, the electoral college was put in place; but sthe correlation of winning the popular vote and the Presidency is quite high.

    Not to mention that the fact remains Rush has taken a jack hammer to moderate political sensibilities and his gigantic and widespread popularity among people the broad majority of the country find politically demented has actually cemented the liberal welfare state during an era when millions of working class Democrats were willing to drift right as they did with Reagan.

    Rush shows up - the far right conservative movement starts spewing from radios all over the country - and Bill Clinton wins the next 2 elections.

    When conservatives look back at the Reagan years and wonder why did that tidal wave of positive energy in the movement conservative community disappear so fast after such a successful presidency - Rush Limbaugh must shoulder a significant portion of the blame for driving many moderate woman away from the GOP and alienating many "Reagan Woerking Class Democrats" who were very open to more conservative economic policy - but absolutely disgusted with a segment of the GOP embracing Rush's scorched earth political discourse and social conservative extremism.

    I guess you're not concerned then that Sharpton and Jesse Jackson do the exact same thing for the left. And together, both are twice the size of Rush, so they win that contest too.

    Sharpton and Jackson have a paltry few supporters compared to Rush's vast army of dittoheads.

    The comparison is laughable and pathetic.

    Aren't they the go-to duo on MSNBC? And one of them has a TV show on that network as well. Rush has nothing like that. I'm guessing people realize how FOS they both are and ignore what they have to say.

    I see how much pain it causes you to know Rush gets his message across to combat buffoons like you.

    So what they are the go to guys for MSNBC - have you compared their ratings to Rush's. Light years in difference. It's like comparing Vermont to Texas.

    I love Rush. He's one of the best recruiters for socialists ever.

    Re: "The Party of No" starts saying, "Yes"

    Sure you love Rush. You're about the biggest tool I've ever witnessed.

    I don't get to listen to him very often but when I do, he's just about spot on with every disaster this country has faced with this administration and this Congress. If you loved him like you say you do, you'd be afraid of how easily he predicts the behavior of the left and the GOP. Sadly, he's known of the downward spiral we've been in quite awhile before it began and when he points out the causes, those on the left are quick to vilify him. You do the same. So don't try to play Br'er Rabbit.
