There is a swift current of hot complaints against Marsha Blackburn, Diane Black and the other Tennessee Congressmen who like to be seen as connected to conservative issues and causes. Just as alcoholism is a sickness, so too is excessive consumption of power.
The symptoms? Progressive acts such as voting FOR John Boehner on Tuesday to be retained.
Progressive acts such as endorsing liberal Republican Lamar Alexander a year before the election.
The Diagnosis? Schizophrenic allegiance with accompanying irrational behavior of being torn between two lovers.
The Etiology? Unstable principles brought on by indecision of whether to keep promises to the Constituents or the Party Leaders in DC
The Cure? Surgery with tincture of sunshine and ballots. If our representatives won’t defend us and our values, we must replace them. No one is beyond recall. No one.
The Democrats detest and want to fundamentally change our American customs, history, and values. The Republicans claim to love our customs, history and values but are unwilling to defend them.
Are you familiar with the statement, “Now is not the time to have a showdown with the Democrats. Wait until we have control of one-half of one-third of the government.”? In 2010 you and I gave them the House.
“Wait until we have control of the Senate.” In 2014, you and I gave them the Senate.
In November, we gave the Republicans control of the House and the Senate, then, removing from the incoming freshmen, their right to vote on the next budget, Boehner secretly met with Obama to produce a budget that funded all of Obamacare and Amnesty through September. Just couldn’t pass a CR to get those rascally freshmen to February, could he?
Our Congressmen will tell us that they value loyalty, that they are loyal to the people at home and need us to be loyal to them. If Marsha or Diane had voted for Boehner and he’d not lost, like Congressman Daniel Webster of Florida, they would be removed from the prestige of committee assignments. What would drive such revenge? Well, of course, their disloyalty.
Boehner doesn’t find dealing behind closed doors with Obama and Reid as disloyalty to his colleagues and thus why shouldn’t he expect loyalty from them?
Congressman Blackburn and Black, talk is cheap.
Twelvers, I wonder if any of you recorded our Tennessee delegation affirming their commitment to remove Boehner. Please send it to me if you have and it can be added to this list below which came from this link.
