Krauthammer: Boehner plan is do or die

In a lot of ways this dispute in the Republican Party over Boehner’s latest plan reminds me a lot of the dispute that arose over supporting Christine O’Donnell over RINO Mike Castle in Delaware. On the one hand we must do everything we can to remove Obama and his destructive band of radical leftist Democrats from power so we can begin to undo the damage they’ve caused and try and put it back on a fiscally sustainable path. I totally get that we need a strong political presence. But on the other hand we must fight for what is right for America and not just what is politically viable in DC. If we don’t fight now how will Americans believe we are going to fight later. But it seems that Krauthammer has decided that fighting for political viability is more important at this point than fighting for American principles.

I understand the argument, that if we lose in 2012 it’s likely all over and I understand what we are up against with these radical leftist Democrats. But the problem is that when America voted the Republican Party back into power in Nov. 2010, they wanted a Republican Party that would fight for them. Instead we got a leadership that seems more interested in compromise based in political fear than doing what is right for America.

Here’s the thing. America knows that Republicans only control one House and that it’s very unlikely that a Republican Agenda will pass through the Senate and the Executive. But we also know that they have had a tremendous amount of leverage this year that was just wasted due to fear of bad press. We just want to see strength in leadership that stands up for American values and gridlocks this administration from damaging this country even more. We have one House and that’s enough to wage a fierce fight against the enemy. It means you talk tough and you pass tough legislation, and you call the leftists what they truly are and quit acting like they are someone you can ‘deal’ with. Messaging is truly important and we’ve been nothing but fail in that category. We won’t win the war at this point but we will hold the line and that’s incredibly important at this stage of the game.

I honestly felt more hopeful when Boehner decided that he couldn’t work with our Jello President and cut him out of the talks. But then all we came up with was a deal that cuts a trillion over 10 years and shovels any other cuts to a committee that probably won’t agree to cut anything, all the while Obama gets his debt limit raise and we keep spending ourselves into oblivion with an ever growing baseline. This isn’t fighting and it’s not holding the line. It’s caving to Democrat rhetoric and I just can’t support it.

But Krauthammer believes that we must accept this deal or we lose. Sometimes I wonder if he’s lost hope in the American people, that maybe he doesn’t hear anymore inside the DC bubble the cries of the American people who voted in Nov. 2010. But we are still here and we are awake. And we will win in 2012 and send the Democrats packing.

It’s time for Washington to quit fearing bad press and Democrat rhetoric and begin fearing the American people’s wrath if they continue to allow this country to be run into bankruptcy. We will replace you if you can’t stand up for us.

    The Kraut is still doing the ‘politics as usual thing’. I believe we really need to ‘change ‘er up’ to get over this mess, but he is talking what he sees as ‘reality’. Good commentary, TRS. I wish you were sitting in Krauthammer’s chair.

    It’s better to die trying to do the right thing than compromise our principles.
    At least then American’s will know that some in Washington are trying to reverse the Socialist parties agenda.
    We must start now stick to our agenda, and build momentum even through our losses.
    Let August 2nd come and go.
    We passed Cut, Cap and Balance.
    We actually wrote a bill.
    We are done.
    Wherever that bill is on August 2nd, that is who dropped the ball.
    The American people deserve some credit, they know exactly what’s going on here.

    Of course not, you candy-apple, chicken-scratch, mouth-breathing, oxygen-wasting, anthropoid rejects. Nothing personal (HA!), but if by a miracle we make it to 2012 and have a free-enough and fraudu-LESS election, we’ll vote you out. I wish we could vote you jail sentences at the same time. And take away your pensions and perks.

    The basic flaw in your argument is this:

    “But the problem is that when America voted the Republican Party back into power in Nov. 2010, they wanted a Republican Party that would fight for them.”

    America did NOT vote the Republican Party back into power. For two reasons:

    1) It was a midterm election and those who voted were a fraction of those who will vote in a presidential election year. The Tea Party were passionate and motivated and turned out in big enough numbers to give the Republicans the majority in the House in districts that were flippable. The Tea Party did nothing to affect any race that was already solid Democrat. Barney Frank still won in a landslide even though he had one of the best conservative Tea Party opponents. Dale Peterson, the conservative darling, lost before it even got to November 2010.

    2) There were not enough votes to give the Republicans control of the Senate. True, a big reason was the way the races fell that year. The odds were always against the Republicans winning enough seats to get the majority. We have a much better chance in 2012 because more seats are in play.

    The other flaw in your argument is this: you put way too much faith in the American People. The vast majority of American voters have no idea what’s going on. They don’t care. That has nothing to do with being an American, either. It’s just human nature. Most people are lazy and stupid or both. Oh, sure, if you ask them the right question framed the right way, 90% of Americans would agree with 90% of the conservative agenda. But they never hear the true conservative agenda. Everything they know is filtered through the liberal mindset.

    It’s not about whining about a biased media. It’s being realistic. Know your audience. The Republicans have to do NOTHING they can be blamed for until the next election. That means raise the debt ceiling and then spend the next 18 months doing nothing else except making Obama and the Democrats look as bad as possible. Pass bill after bill repealing Obamacare. Hold hearings non stop on Fast and Furious. Call every administration official to testify on every petty issue there is. Every day.

    Otherwise, Obama wins. And that means we all lose.

        The worst thing that happened was the Republicans winning the House majority in 2010. It would have been much better in the long term to have won enough seats to prevent another Obamacare, but not enough to take the majority.

                  I haven’t lost faith in the country’s citizens. But I wonder how honest the 2012 election is going to be … or if obama will proclaim himself dictator before then. I think that’s why the ATF (and now the State Dept.) was arming the drug dealers: obama wants his own army. He’s trying to nauseate the straights in the military, hoping only homosexuals or mostly homosexuals will remain when he calls on them to back his power play. Then there’s the ten million (minimum) illegals in this country. Then there’s the radical Muslims already inside the borders.

                  There’s a lot to contend with. I think August 6th will be the deciding factor, over-riding all others. Just like it was when this country was born.

            Here’s my problem with this theory that people will see Obama for what he is and vote Republican. Keep in mind that I am totally biased from a liberal/leftist mindset:

            I don’t think the average conservative really grasps how demonized conservatism has become in the last 10 years. It’s not a question of Republicans offering a better philosophy. It’s a question of not scaring people. Too many people cannot even conceive of calling themselves conservative, much less a Republican.

            Conservatism is the only Evil some people have ever been taught. It won’t take much to reinforce that notion so the Republicans need to be aware enough to not do anything to feed that narrative. Because that narrative is there.

            I just want them to win. But you know what? I just keep hearing Ann Coulter’s joke how you should never underestimate the Republicans ability to snatch defeat from of the jaws of victory. They just can’t seem to help being their own worst enemies.

            • Anonymous

              I understand but the public has had a crash course in progressivism in recent years. Generations know their theories and goals as evil, from the cradle to the present.

              When I give Alicia that crisp, freshly printed dollar, she should rip it in half, and give one part to you, so you’ll each have a nickel.

              I sincerely think he’s on the losing side of a landslide and will get buried by it. I felt the same way about the 2010 election. In my state of Michigan we cleaned house, won all three branches and the Sec of State as well as sent Stupunk packing! In Michigan! (did I say in Michigan yet?)

              Obama and his cohorts are the ones snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. The repubs are doing quite well under the tilted circumstances here with one half of one branch of Gov.

              They are “naming the game”…Civics 101 🙂

          The majority of American voters have been screaming their lungs out at Wash D.C. for the last two and a half years. The problem is in D.C., not in the hearts or minds of Americans. Our politicians have “re-conceptualized” their jobs as “masters of the people”. and they refuse to hear. They pretend that they believe they’re so much wiser than us, so much more noble, etc. blah blah blah, and we’ve done almost everything we can short of repeating our national heritage.

        I’m surrounded by liberals, unfortunately.

        Did YOU know that:

        Obama averted a Depression and if it weren’t for the Stimulus the unemployment rate would be 17%? (or whatever some liberal source says)

        MSNBC is completely unbiased and the most credible news source there is.

        Rush Limbaugh is a racist pig and everyone knows that.

        Christianity has killed more people in the history of the world than any other philosophy.

        Have you ever tried to argue with anyone who believes any of those things?

    • And yet our leadership refuses to put ObamaCare on the table as a starting point in these negotiations and they will likely not pass anymore bills repealing ObamaCare because they say they’ve already done it. They don’t understand that it’s a huge deal to keep this issue alive and well in the mind of Americans. They think such efforts are fruitless and discount them from the start because they won’t be accepted by the opposition.

      The leadership in the House is weak and you partially make my point.

        I totally agree. Boehner and the other leaders are useless.

        Did you watch Hannity last night? He had Coburn and Chambliss on. Oh, man, was it painful. Talk about useless pieces of crap. Sean was way too polite with them, but that’s his way.

        I am not saying the Republicans don’t need to shake up their leadership. Oh, they do. But the current leadership is all we’ve got and that, too, can be fixed in the next Congress. But the GOP has to win first.

        • I don’t disagree. 2012 is the biggest priority. But I think if the leadership played a stronger hand from the beginning, they wouldn’t have near as much dissension in the ranks.

          But yeah, we gotta win or we’re doomed short of divine providence.

            But if the repubs “win” by compromising, who’s going to vote for them in 2012? Right now and for the last two years outrage is / has been the most prevalent emotion where politics are concerned.

            IMHO, the repubs’ best chance of winning in 2012 is to show themselves immune to the temptation of compromise now, no matter what the cost now.

            Malkin wrote something on that today about how the new Repubs in Congress are still very aware of who it is that elected them, and feel responsible to hold up what they said during campaigning as truth. It’s SO hard to see the right path to take when you’re right in the middle of the battle. I, personally, feel like I want the Repubs to fight tooth and nail for principles, but I completely understand how Jaynie59 feels too. In the end, Jaynie59 may be right about the course to take, but I can’t help feeling like this is the mountain to die on for Boehner and the others because it’s about principle and we can’t keep drawing a line in the sand only to have these progressives walk right across it unmolested. Anyhow, that’s my two cents…

      • the problem is if the house passes a bill they get hammered from both sides,cons say it isn’t conservatives enough,or they are “passing that bill knowing it will not pass in the senate” then the dems fearmonger with the full propanganda help of the media.but hey thats just me.

    Obama with three trillion dollars of new funny money wins in 2012 hands down. His base of Government employees, African Americans, Unions will assure his return to finish off the USA. I can hear Obama now….I saved Social Security….I saved the USA from the Bush policies……I saved Medicare…..I gave you Universal Heathcare…..
    As I see it a new round of commodity inflation is just on the horizon to finish off the “working families” so that in 2012 Obama can say “vote for me and I will give you a COLA”……

    Too many of the DC GOP leadership fear the wrath of the media than the electorate as RS stated in his conclusion.

    The Tea Party members of the House are correct to oppose the Boehner Plan.
    They were sent to Washington to stand up for the people and the Constitution.
    They represent smaller government that is fiscally responsible and bound by the rule of law, meaning the Constitution.
    The Tea Party has already compromised by allowing any debt ceiling increase whatsoever.
    However, a trade for a balanced budget amendment (sent to the States) seemed equitable.
    “Cut, Cap and Balance” was the Bill passed by the House and that is the Bill they should stick with.
    All Bills must originate in the House, they are then voted on and amended by the Senate and returned to the House for another vote. Then they go to the White House for signature or veto.
    That is our Constitutional system, like it or not.
    If Harry Reid doesn’t have the honesty to bring the bill up for a vote-as is his responsibility- then I guess the Democrats in the Senate and the President don’t really need the debt ceiling increased.
    I understand this puts the Republicans in a difficult position, and I don’t care.
    I am a Teat Party Patriot and not a Republican.
    If they sell their values now in this very small and almost insignificant battle (yes it is if you consider all that needs to be done) in order to help the Republicans over the best interest of the USA, then we are lost.
    I don’t expect the Tea Party to win every battle, but I do expect them to give an honest fight.
    We will build momentum and gain ground through our defeats if we show character.
    It’s called leadership, and America is very desperate for it.

    Look we either have control and will be praised for doing the right thing or we will capitulate and rightly be bashed for being WIMPS. Enough BS! Cut the Spending; Reduce/close all unnecessary agencies. We have ALL done the same thing in our own homes.

    I think my next spending cut should be my TAX Payment.
    What do YOU ALL think of THAT?

      Sauerkrauthammer also said that Trump was a serious candidate. I like him, but he is not infallible…neither is the Pope.

      P.S. I like it. Sounds like you’re in the top 50 percentile 🙂
      Writing a check to the IRS changes folks a bit.

        I heard Charles marginalize trump on at least a half dozen fox segments. When did he think trump was a serious candidate?

    Very lucid analysis and you know I agree with you 100%. I think they have to go back to the Cut,Cap and Balance bill, which I believe, was actually a compromise. Now we have gone to a compromise on a compromise…makes no sense. Due to the fact that the Senate tabled the bill immediately due to political posturing on behalf of the democrats. Even doing this they only had to get 3 more democrats to change their vote and it would have passed and then let Obama veto it and show that he truly is not the grand compromiser he professes to be.

      The only thing Obama compromises is the truth. Nice post sir.

    it is really simple…the repubs and the american people are being held hostage by bunch of criminals who created this crisis…and these criminals know that repubs will raise the ceiling, because it is a decision the house has to make, they control the purse strings, so repubs are stuck can they risk a crash over doing the right thing…tragic thing is if repubs do the right thing and some economic crash occurs or interest rates spike,…who will get the blame, tuff position to be in but i think americans will blame the repubs for picking the wrong battle…and unfortunately the criminals in this whole thing will get away scott free…man the dems are lucky…

    Instead of saying the Boehner plan “cuts” $1 Trillion, why not say it “cuts” the massive projected annual deficits by a meager 5%?

    I’m with Charles. I can’t accept Obama getting another term. We must put this behind us and focus on 2012.

    And when Harry Reid rejects this one, and Obama rejects this one, what will all of you say? Will we then be advised to just give up the fight? We should just give the criminals calling themselves Democrats everything they want, with no strings attached? We supported Cut Cap and Balance. This is the plan that should have been fought for.

    They want to give this to the man who has not presented a budget, as he is required to by law? They want to raise the debt ceiling for the man who said he had, “Shovel ready jobs,” only to have him joke later, “I guess those shovel ready jobs weren’t so shovel ready after all.” You want to raise the debt ceiling for a man who said he knew nothing about Fast and Furious only to find out later, he allocated $10 Million in his Stimulus Bill which was really a looting of the US Treasury to purchase AK-47’s for the drug cartels. By the way the White House did know, from today.

    And it’s the Tea Party they’re mocking and fighting against?

    George Washington dragged himself and his soldiers across the Delaware with their feet wrapped in burlap, on the ice, bleeding all the way. What would have happened to America if he would have said, “This is the best we can do, give up men.” I’m ashamed of Boehner and the others. I can not support him anymore because of his trashing of those who put him there. The Tea Party. I’m a Tea Party supporter, and I can’t support cowardice and selling out. I can’t support people who ride in on our backs and then demean the representatives that represent us, by using Obama’s Thug tactics and telling these good men to “Get your ass in order?” No Mr. Boehner, that is what you need to do.

    Mr. Scoop, excellent points in your memo! I just wish Kraut, et.al could explain to all the hard-working Americans who are scraping by and trying desperately not to sink that this is the way to win the fight of our lives and our children’s futures. I know they all got some book smarts and can do basic math. So what could they be fearing? Perhaps the Washington Elites don’t fear what us normal folk do because they are already very wealthy {millionaires & billionaires} and figure they can tough it out with what they have. Reality is simple, there isn’t enough $$$ in the entire world to pay for all of the debt. So everyone is going to be FUBAR! Even you, Kraut… even y o u.

    Krauthammer is wrong.

    The future is the Tea Party Conservatism. It’s the wave. Obama and Harry Reid and all who are up for re-election in 2012 need to get up and ride with it or get wiped OUT.

    Politicians have re-elections to worry about. They have to read the handwriting on the wall and it says, Tea Party. They are to fear US. We don’t fear them. Any of them. They WILL vote and Obama WILL sign, if the Tea Party stands and stays strong. We’ve been pushed around and disrespected for nearly 3 years in every way possible. No compromise.

    PS I am not a registered Republican to be bipartisan. I wish Speaker Boehner would stop using the word “bipartisan.”

    There is nothing more to say. You stated it all precisely and in a manner that many of us are already thinking!
    Krauthammer has displayed more frequently that he is of the mindset of the elitist old guard GOP which places party loyalty over and above principle

  • Liberal Republican RINO’s, and moderate Independents, like O’Reilly and Krauthammer, apparently do not seem to understand the point- which is, there has got to be a point where “enough is enough”. no more..!! That tomorrow never comes, because tomorrow is here..  and that we need to start adhering to the old adage-  ” An ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure”.!! and why, because it’s true, as in stop spending more than we make and collect in revenue.. and if need more Revenue, then we must grow the US Economy with sound proven Pro-American Capitalist Free Market Enterprise Policies, not Obama’s stifling Job killing Anti-American Socialist-Marxist Policies and Agenda, of over taxing and over regulating the American People, and US Businesses, to death.. 

    The prevention never seems to come before the cure, with these standard same old politics as usual Politicians, in their same old status quo game..   which is why we had the 2 Nov. 2010 Midterm Election results of throwing out all of Obama’s and Pelosi’s , corrupt Liberal Obamacrats from the US House of Representatives, which was a mandate by the American people, to stop Obama’s Socialist-Marxist Policies and Agenda madness..
     
    But it is soon coming in time- the 6 Nov 2012 election, to finish the job, once and for all, and vote to get rid of the Chief Anti-American Liberal Socialist-Marxist Keynesian Wealth Redistributionist, himself.!!

    Start prepping the patients.
    Why do we “TRY” to treat/remove cancer?

    Start treatment = Cut, Cap & Balance… but keep smoking = Increase the Debt Ceiling?

    How does that make since, I must need someone smarter than me to explain this.
    Im sure our president can explain it so I can understand… I just need to know what body part I can cut off and sell.

    Hey… we can all just sell organs to pay off our debt!
    How much debt does each American owe now?
