Thanks Tom and Doug!!!

You both have accurately reflected the desires of your constituents and we are proud of you both.  The whole scenario we just went through will be repeated again in three months or so and that is just fine with me and many others.

Until there is rational behaviour from Obama and the democrat lackeys of debt, America will be at risk of failure.  Common sense was shown, the House did their best and the democrats and Obama look weak.

America is glad to have your kind of common sense leadership.

  1. Thanks for what? What did these obstructors actually do, except further the destruction of their Party on a national basis (I have no problem with that part). They intentionally hurt the country, hurt economic growth by .6% for the quarter, hurt our standing in the world. So give us specifics Todd about the positive benefits of the shutdown and debt ceiling threat on business, economic interests and world interests. Did it help the electoral chances of the moderate Gov. of NJ? The extreme radical Senator from Texas? Please list them for us. The majority of American see LOSER when thinking of Reps like LaMalfa and McClintock. L.O.S.E.R.

  2. Those, along with McClintock and LaMalfa, who voted against kicking the can down the road expressed principles and truths about the nation's fisc that are apparently not accessible to those who belong to the country's Cornucopia Chorus. Tough stance putting principle above politics, pandering, and public relations, but one that many of us appreciate greatly.

    1. Principals are well and good on an individual level, but the fact is that a strong majority of Americans do not share the most extreme Tea Party ideas, such as the very misguided govt. shutdown and threat of default. Governing this vast and diverse nation requires compromise and yes, politics and deals. It requires a respect of the institution of government and its laws, and a respect for the will of the majority of the people, as they speak through elections. You cannot govern effectively and cannot function as the major player on the world stage with an irrational and rigid adherance to the principals of 20% of America.

    2. I would suspect you didn't care that the democrats did Obamacare without one R vote, right? You see bruiser, it is all about bias. You are a liberal and all they do is good while all Tea Party or R are bad. That is fine with me. I am into power. The power of the vote. R's have the House, D's have the other two. So, sometimes people get all uppity and say, golly, we in the House are the originator of money allocation and maybe we will exercise that Constitutional responsibility. Then we have the Senate, run by the democrats who say, we don't care about the country and its future, we will spend all the money, we will spend our great gran-kids money and send them into the abyss. But we democrats are making Bruiser and his ilk happy today. Sorry, we think about the future, you don't.

    3. All I can say is - best wishes in the upcoming Congressional elections and the big one in 2016. Looks like the loud and large C. Christie will be your candidate then, as he will stake out the moderate ground. But reflecting on the last few weeks, I'm not so sure the Republican Party was well served by the shutdown. You can always hope and dream. :)

    4. We will hold the House and gain the Senate next year. My experience is people's political memory is short and unless they are being totally screwed by ObamaCare they may not show up. Meaning dems. 2016, I like Chritoe and there are other I like as well. Anyone but a democrat.

    6. So what? Romney probably won but Obama and the democrats controlling the election offices pulled a Kennedy on Nixon 1960. LOL!

  3. What is extreme about balancing a budget? When it comes to heaping unsustainable debt and never-ending deficits on our children, please tell me where the compromise position is.

  4. Exapnding on the above, I fail to see where the TP's prudent principles rejected by the principals of the liberal elites are in any way radical or extreme. Taking the country into the fiscal then social toilet is the only extreme policy that has been in force for some time now. Could some liberal with a three digit IQ please supply the arguments of how continuing the same ol' same ol' will save us from our downward spiral. Or perhaps there is no one on the Left who yet detects that we are in that predicament?
