    “. . . I venture to say that, taken as a whole, the House is sound at heart; nowhere else will you find such a ready appreciation of merit and character, in few gatherings of equal size is there so little jealousy and envy. . . The men who have led the House, whose names have become a splendid tradition to their successors, have gained prominence not through luck or by mere accident. They had ability, at least in some degree; but more than that they have had character.”
    —Speaker Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois, (1903–1911)

    The split in the Republican Party is between those who want to retain Constitutional Democracy – the governing system this Country was founded to embody – and those who want to ‘move on’ through anarchy toward some sort of totalitarian ‘system’, a system where our politicians and Supreme Court share offices with business, the military and ‘our’ church. I voted Republican fairly consistently until 2008. No more.

    McCarthy dropped out! Regular Republicans have the opportunity to tell the Tea Party Caucus (and affiliated members) where to stuff it. Will it happen? ….meh. Or elect somebody like Richard Luger or Joe Lieberman if those kind of people still exist in politics.

    Sorry Mike, from what I have recently seen it looks more like the tea party types may actually take over. Hopefully for the rest of we more moderate types on either side ot the political spectrum, this is not true……hopefully…

    ^ Yeah…I realize my last post is optimistically over the top, a regular Pollyanna Post.

    “…but more than that they have had character.”
    Now they are just a bunch of character’s, not a statesman in sight.

    In the old days party bosses got the politicians in and kept them in line. It was considered a dirty business. But considering the bozos that are in now, I would be glad to defer to the boss system.

    Maybe the US needs a three party system — Democrats, Republicans, and the Tea Party.

    We need someone as far to the right as possible, who has the stones to actually work to stop Obozo’s radical left wing agenda.

    Thank god the right wingers won the last election
    you see how smoothly government works under their direction, and think of all the things they have got done and the promises fulfilled.

    When you have clowns like Boehner who won’t stand up to Obozo…

    The tea party can never win a single victory while they see talking to the president as satanic. They simply cannot pass anything. When the debt ceiling comes up and the tea party says “burn down the entire economy!!!” maybe even the irrational types at the Chamber of Commerce will realize that the Republican Party’s nihilist policies are no longer good for business, the rich, the poor, or anyone.

    As a former leader of the free world, what an embarrassment we have become.

    It seemed to be a great disappointment to the far right that Obama refused to negotiate in any way, but simply caved in immediately to their first round of demands, on almost every occasion.
    That they immediately came back with stupid stuff that had no support, even from Boehner, every single time, says nothing about Obama. Says a whole lot about the nonexistent “integrity” of the Tea Party. (Tea Party® is a registered trademark of Koch Industries – if you want a stink, you want a Koch!)

    The Chamber of Commerce is all about illegal immigration now. Debt ceiling may need to be raised, but we have to be willing to talk about REAL cuts to spending, not just slowing the rate of growth in spending. And massive taxes & spending hurt everyone more than cutting the waste, fraud & un-Constitutional programs we have.
