Couldn't agree more with Mark Levin's point of view. I am not giving up anything to the Muslim-Interloper "occupying" the White House.
"Honorable"? I think "horrible" would have been a better word to describe what it is to accept the Medicaid expansion. Medicaid is already going bankrupt, and, additionally, accepting the Medicaid expansion strengthens the Obama administration's leverage in terms of implementing the Obama-lose-your-healthcare bill.
What will happen when Emperor Nero Obama decides to run his empress Cleopatra Moochelle Obama against Hillary in 2016?
Afterall look at all the savings he just made on closing the rolls for signing up for coverage of pre-conditions like autism and prostate cancer and breast cancer all money he can funnel into Cleopatra's campaign against Hillary and to put in a few more golf lessons with Tiger Woods $1000 per hour golf coach?
Hmmmm! What possibilities does that present!
Mark is correct and the problem is Krauthammer is falling in line with the decades of bad logic that incrementally got us to the edge of this cliff. CK is talking politics with political maneuvering and elections and the rest of us are talking about the ultimate result and an endgame that is happening with the implementation of this as well as the implementation of other issues. It is two very different things.
IMO, Gov. Scott's decision to to accept Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion has nothing to do with the Governor's opinion of this new entitlement program that will end healthcare as we know while the cost for insurance, medical treatment and drugs increase more rapidly prior to the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Scott who fiercely opposed the ACA is up for reelection and he has reached a conclusion that creating these exchanges will help him to win. I think he's sadly mistaken.
BTW, I agree with much of Levin's assessment, but it misses a key point with regards to so-called conservative pundits. This was obvious immediately after Obama's victory in 2008 over McCain, but most MSM news outlets didn't report the story (see below):
People like Charles Krauthammer of The Washington Post, Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol and David Brooks of the New York Times broke bread with President-elect Obama at George Will's $1.9 million home. This confused the media and the left at that time (see article below):
Obama breaks bread with conservatives
So the real question is are they conservatives pundits or merely RINOS with an opinion that floats from right to the left?
Charles K. comes up with some good ones sometimes but as a conservative he fails miserably. He straddles the fence so comes down on each side at different times, depending on his mood I guess. I never pay any attention to his advice but do get some laughs out of his put downs of Obama and others. His confusion about whose side to be on reminds me of most of the Republicans in Congress.
I am glad to see Mark is not shying away from exposing the political class and elites regardless of Party.
Mark, please explain to America the Founder's intent of Natural Born Citizen requirement in Article 2 Section 1. Leo Donofrio has done extensive legal research. It is no coincidence that neither McCain, Obama, Rubio and Jidhal qualify!
By failing to challenge Obama under jus sanguinis and McCain under jus soli we have set precedent that any "citizen of the world" can occupy the Executive Branch.
The Constitution is under full blown attack. Did you think the globalists would not go after this? It is very dangerous.
There is a wealth of research in Leo's archives:
Seems some Republicans aren't content to sit back and watch the Democrats drive the nation over the cliff. They want to do it themselves.
If they truly believed in the cause of liberty, then they'd be opposing Obamacare any way they could, on the singular reasoning the it is a violation of the unalienable individual rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Sadly, nobody gives a crap about the declaration of independence; nobody gives a crap about the unalienable individual rights. It's just all constitution says this, supreme court says that. When you do things that are a violation of the unalienable individual rights, then it doesn't matter whether the constitution permits it, and it doesn't matter whether the supreme court permits it - Neither trump the unalienable individual rights. Unalienable MEANS unalienable. Period.
Just because the Supreme Court ruled doesn't make it constitutional. Our founders thought the SC should have the least amount of rule not the rulers of all.
Here in SC instead of our Governor not expanding Medicare or Medicaid she just came out with HaleyCare instead... giving more money to the hospitals to expand it and her math doesn't add up. We are furious at what she has done.
Haleycare??? That's perfect!! She should automatically be the next GOP nominee. I mean we ran the Romneycare guy and she did endorse him DURING the primary, it's the right thing to do!!
Why isn't the GOPe and Rove all over this??
At least Haleycare would be easier to get rid of than getting federal money. I'd rather deal with that beast.
We are doomed. The Constitutional Republic is dead. Why did our military fight and died? So we could become a Communist Nation. Obama does not respect the Constitution and would prefer laws closer to the Communist Manifesto.
Rick, Are you a Republican or a Dem.? Charlie Christ did this too, he turned on Florida, left us high and dry, raised everything we do with a Florida Flag flying over it, now we have to pay double, Rick was elected because he was not going the obomacare route. doth report cards stink,F.F.F.F., good luck of either of you getting reelected, Where is Jeb Bush when you need a real Governor? Here is the worst part i voted for both, like buying a Car that turned out to be a Lemon, SOLD AS IS- WHERE IS, No Returns, No Refund
I abhor the thought of Jeb thinking of running for President, but I really did love him as our Governor. We haven't had any good ones in ages except for him. We need to see about getting Allen West interested in running against Scott in the next race. Seriously.
We were just talking about that earlier. He seemed like a great Gov.
You know, I liked Pres Bush. Well, at least the first 4 ok, 3 years. After that he lost his way. As a person, he seems like a good, humble guy. He has a heart and cares about the military. But he's def not perfect. If I saw him, I'd say hi.
Not like Pres 0. If I saw him, I'd walk…..no run the other way! hee hee.
That said- I don't think our Country is ready for another Bush for President.
I googled it and here's a great video that explains it. This is scary as hell. It's not very long but totally informational.
No to Jeb. He's more his fathers son than GW. I noted in the last election how the Bushes not including GW were all for Romney and bashed Gingrich. GW to his credit stayed out of it completely.
I will fight until my last breath against having corruptocrat Jeb Bush as POTUS and also his lapdog Waterboy!
The Age of Bush is O.V.E.R.
The Bush mafia is not on my side.
In an open act of defiance I just sent back a request for money from the Republican Party of Florida with a copy of Angelo Codevilla's brilliant essay "As Country Club Republicans Link Up With The Democratic Ruling Class, Millions Of Voters Are Orphaned" in their prepaid postage envelope.
Bush1 signed America up to the original UN Agenda 21. Did we think Bush 2 would do anything different. Will Bush3 or Marco Bush? They deceive us publicly.
All before and since Reagan have been taking us toward a a singular collectivist global vision. The Right, via public-Private Partnerships. The Left, via Social Justice and Environmentalism.
It is difficult to let go of of our faith in these "republicans" but we have to - these globalist are taking down America and our Constitution.
The way to stop the obamanation is to stop Agenda21 and ICLEI. Find them in you states and communities, Fight them They are the top-down, bottom-up death grip.
Rick did what Christ did, turn on Florida, after a few years, fat chance either one get reelected in Florida, no backbone, so is Rick a Dem. now, like charlie Christ? Rick was elected because he said no to obomacare, we have 2 more years of him, and 4 more of oboma, how nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As usual, Levin nails it. And the Kraut and the GOPe apologists are exactly what Codevilla talks about in the Forbes article. Surrendering for what? For the opportunity to continue to sell out the Constitution, individual liberty and States rights?
Krauthammer has been in Washington too long to understand what this means for states, just a pathetic attempt to give the mushy Rick Scott cover for this disastrous decision. I live in Florida and I am very disappointed at my governor, he ran as a tea party guy, but at the end acted like another no gut, Rino.
Me too proudhispanicconservativefellowfloridianpatriotfriend. I liked Bill McCullum, but he didn't get the backing that Scott did. Dang this stinks like charlie slip and fall dearleader loving crist all over again! :-(
Looking forward to the time that you, your husband and your son can get up here in my neck of the woods. I'll give you a tour of the place in Ol' Lizzie. Best you wait till all the tourists go home though, traffic is a little safer. Model T Fords and Northeastern drivers don't mix well.
"Exactly! His (West's) resume is a little slim for president."
And Obama's resume was ???????
At least, Col. West showed up most of the time. ;-)
Exactly! His resume is a little slim for president. In fact it's very slim for president. I'm not really sure how well he would do as governor but it would be worth a try.
Yes it would, wouldn't it! Looks like I have even more work to do. I hope I can stretch out my days. OY Vey!
I thank God for that tinlizzieowner. I really am glad and honored to meet you, and I'm glad and know there are many great folks down here too who think much the same :-) Night friend!
You know from our face to face conversations exactly where I'm at, as I do you. There are many Gulf Coast Floridians of the same mind we are. :-)
LOL I knew you'd say something like that. Personally, I think you're feisty enough to be a great Governor, but I don't blame you :-) Keep your ears open though, we never know when we might find someone and think, hmmmm.
Not a snowball's chance in hell. Believe it or not, I don't have the ego to be a politician and I cherish what little private life I still have left. ;-)
Oh yeah! I knew I lived in the right part of the State lol. We need seriously to get something started with West or find someone around who has a desire to run. Someone Constitutional, Conservative and a Veteran would be an awesome addition! I don't suppose I could talk you into it tinlizzyowner?!
I think it would be quite interesting to see Col. West run for governor. :-)
The GOP 'Beltway deciders' have already ruled him out for President.
There are a lot more Black conservatives over here on the gulf side, than anybody is aware of.
Charlotte County (where the museum is) is 25% retired and ex military by demographics. Your county and my county aren't far behind that.
It would be an interesting election in deed. ;-)
Whoo hoo! Yes we can! We just need to get a great replacement. Any ideas Tinlizzieowner? I'd say Allen West, but I want him for President in 2016 ;-)
