Quotes of the day

Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.

At one point, according to notes taken by a participant, Mr. Boehner told the president, “I put $800 billion [in tax revenue] on the table. What do I get for that?”

“You get nothing,” the president said. “I get that for free.”

***

Had there been a vote on Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s “Plan B” to avert the so-called U.S. fiscal cliff on Thursday night, it would not have been close. He was probably 40 to 50 votes short of the number he needed to avoid a humiliating defeat at the hands of his own party, according to rough estimates from Republican members of Congress and staff members…

“Some people really really really really talked themselves into believing it was a tax increase even though Grover Norquist, of all people, said it wasn’t,” said Cole, referring to the anti-tax activist responsible for “the pledge” not to raise taxes that most Republicans sign.

“That is like me talking myself into believing something is a sin even though the Pope tells me it is not,” Cole said.

***

“I think that there were members that are so gun shy about primaries that they weren’t willing to take a risk … some members told me that it was just too hard to explain how it wasn’t a tax increase,” Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) said shortly following Thursday night’s abrupt conference meeting where Boehner told his colleagues they wouldn’t vote on the bill…

One lawmaker, who has served on the whip team for several years, told The Hill that he was “whipping people that I’ve never had to whip before.”

The lawmaker, who requested anonymity, was getting frustrated with his colleagues for regurgitating the “the same old bull—- lines … like, ‘If we don’t hold the line, or if we cave’… And I said, ‘What??? Then what?’”

He was able to turn several votes when his colleagues couldn’t answer “what then.”

***

As things stand now, some worry that nothing short of a catastrophe could force a resolution.

“We have sunk to the lowest common denominator in order to get a deal — sheer panic,” said Republican strategist Ron Bonjean, a former aide to House and Senate leadership. “The reality of a stock market crash is probably the only way Washington will strike a deal. It is probably the only scenario that could likely force the speaker’s hand and allow for a deal driven by Democratic votes to pass the House.”

Which, of course, is not an ideal way to govern.

“The hard-core anti-tax conservatives in the GOP seem to believe that Barack Obama will be blamed if there is no agreement reached to avoid sequestration and the tax increases that are coming,” said Sheldon D. Pollack, a University of Delaware law and political science professor who has written a history of Republican anti-tax policy. “Calculated gamble? Or are they simply incapable of recognizing that they do not control the White House or the Senate, and hence do not have the ability to control the agenda? Sadly, I think it is the latter.”

***

Several conservative House Republican members are contemplating a plan to unseat Speaker John Boehner from his position on January 3, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Staffers have compiled a detailed action plan that, if executed, could make this a reality…

Since there are 233 Republicans heading into the next Congress, only 17 Republicans would be needed to unseat Boehner. The House would continue having multiple elections throughout the day on January 3 until it agreed upon a new Speaker…

If Boehner loses on that first election try, he’ll be battered. For now, this is a leaderless movement – an “Anybody but Boehner” charge. But after that first secret ballot election wouldn’t have earned him his speakership back, those planning this ouster expect viable alternatives to emerge at that point.

One of those alternatives, they think, will unite the party and take the speakership.

***

“This was not a vote of no confidence in the Speaker,” freshman Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), an opponent of Boehner’s Plan B legislation, said in an interview. “This was a legislative defeat, not a personal defeat.”

Another vocal critic of the Speaker’s proposal, Rep. John Fleming (R-La.), said: “He is my Speaker, and I support him.”…

When asked if Boehner’s Speakership was in trouble, freshman Rep. Austin Scott (R-Ga.) — a conservative in the majority-making class of 2010 — gave a resounding “Hell, no!” to The Hill on Friday morning…

One conservative House Republican, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the only way Boehner’s position is likely to be in serious jeopardy is if he agrees to raise the debt ceiling in a fiscal-cliff deal with Obama without significant concessions on spending cuts and entitlement reform from the president.

“If he gives away the debt ceiling, he’s in trouble,” the member said.

***

Risks to Boehner’s speakership be damned, Democratic leaders are anticipating they may have to join him in large numbers to pass a bill.

“There’s no rule preventing him from allowing the entire House to work its will, Democrats and Republicans together, and that may mean that we have to pass something that does not have 50 percent of Republicans on board,” Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee, told National Journal…

One GOP member, who spoke on the condition of anonymity so he could speak openly, predicted the country “would go through the cliff, [President Obama] will figure out what deal he can cut, it’ll go through the Senate and we’ll have to pass it out,” he said.

***

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is resisting pressure from Republicans pushing for the Senate to take a more active role to avoid the “fiscal cliff” after House legislation stalled Thursday.

Reid has rejected Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) assertion that avoiding the fiscal cliff now depends on President Obama working out a deal with the Senate. Reid’s allies said it is unrealistic to expect him and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to step in and hammer out an eleventh-hour agreement…

“We’re now in a bad spot,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). “I hope we don’t go over the cliff but I think we are.”

***

“The American people re-elected President Obama on Election Day. They also re-elected a Republican majority in the House,” he said, confronting rhetoric by opponents who say Boehner needs to bow to the will of the majority of American people who elected a president that campaigned on higher taxes for the wealthiest Americans.

“In doing so, they gave us all a mandate,” he continued. “It was not a mandate to raise tax rates on families and small businesses. It was a mandate for us to work together to begin solving the massive debt that threatens our country’s future.”

Dire Straits on December 22, 2012 at 10:49 PM

I really wonder if lil barry has the stones to try for confiscation or any real big anti-gun move before the election of 2014.
I’m thinkin’ that he’d like to destroy as much of the Republican party as he can before then – and then make a move after the democRATs have taken back the house.
That way, he’s got both houses of congress backing his play.

Or not…as the case may be.

Maybe that’s just wishful thinking (and wanting more time to pick up a few more necessities – and another 10,000+ rounds of “investment metal”).

People are playing the same “political Jesus” game with Boehner that they played with Romney after the election. Just heap all the blame for everything on him, let him die a political death for those “sins” and thereby “cleanse” everyone else in the party … just blame Boehner for everything. Pile all the party baggage on him and send him sailing down the river.

Problem is, that doesn’t fix anything. Once (if) Boehner’s gone, we still have the same problem to deal with and circular blame casting isn’t going to work. The next speaker will still have to deal with a Senate and White House that isn’t going to budge. We will go over the cliff, the people will be in a huge panic, and they will demand that the House Republicans take whatever Obama and the Democrats offer.

This isn’t about “leadership”. This is about a group of Republicans who aren’t really Republicans. The ones who consider themselves “conservatives first and Republicans second” need to be purged. They are neither Republicans nor conservatives in a political sense. They are handing the liberals victory after victory because of their splitting of the Republican party. It’s time to get rid of them. Let them form their own party but it is time they stopped screwing up mine. I have a hunch, though, that a lot of the so-called “tea party” Republicans are really Democrats in conservative suits.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.”

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Typical leftist: “…i can send someone over…”.
Sniveling coward. If you had any guts, you’d offer to go get them yourself.
Leftists are cowards.
You talk big, make threats…and then want someone else to do your dirty work for you.
Solaratov on December 22, 2012 at 11:12 PM

So I guess that means we should expect to see you and swalker on the news proudly standing below the first lynched “Treasonous Fifth Column Media Propagandist” in no time then, eh?

Just that whole “organizing” part you gotta work out first, right?

This “Stranger” is a classic, too – you can tell they had “You Keep Me Hanging On” on their minds when they wrote it!

Apologies for the lack of a studio version – all of them I found were blocked in the US. This live version is still good, though.

Hey Twerp! I like the boots–three pairs of Ariats at this end of things. Four pairs of Old Gringos, with another under the tree on Tuesday. Because, you know, one can never have enough cowboy boots…especially in the Windy City!

Solaratov on December 22, 2012 at 11:24 PM

Like I said. Coward.

Don’t want to try to answer my question do you? Cause the answer is never, huh. We’ll never see you backing up big talk with actions, sacrifice, and risk.

No, just taps on your keyboard from the comfort of your house. And MAYBE if someone else starts it up, you’ll join up and run with the back of the mob yelling, “yeah!! What he said!!”. Until it fizzles out and you safely return home having… Never.done.a.thing.

It’s kind cute actually. Your over-toughness and big man in a comments section persona. Such a great role model. Leads by such great example.

Lefties. Soooooooo entertaining.

The only principal Republicans believe in, apparently, is clinging to power.

urban elitist on December 22, 2012 at 9:50 PM

that actually doesn’t make any sense…the expedient thing to do is vote with barry.

But your view of the dem/left is half right. While many Dem/Left did see obama.care as the once in a Lifetime…100 years in the making…the Historic Legacy of an Historic President (etc. etc. etc.), many were threatened, bought etc. Hardly a ‘principled’ approach. Dem machines are Not principled…except to Dominate the political playing field

The effectiveness of Dem Machines can be seen in many of our cities…which often resemble the cities of the warsaw pact. Hmmmmm…i wounder why?

leftists can claim no high ground in actually helping people, other than their friends…so ‘principle’ rapidly devolves into the Machine….aka (in Chicago) as the Combine

Awe! That’s so cute!! A link to a Wikipedia entry about tarring and feathering!!

I can’t wait! When do you start?! I mean come on! How hard are those supplies to get?! You can totally go out and do that!

But you won’t. Because you’re a coward. A paper tiger who will sit anonymously and talk big and then wait and hope someone else has the nerve to actually do it so you can jump in and say, “Yeah!! Me too!!”

I’m paying attention, sir. How long should I focus on the news waiting to see of your glorious arrival and statement before I give up on it as pointless from the start cause you’re nothing but a yellow bellied anonymous dude on the web who likes to pretend you’re bigger, stronger, braver, and more important that you really are?

You got a timeline here until YOUR tarring’s and Ly*chings start? I’m so excited! I won’t be let down will I?!
