Mitch McConnell Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

As 2012 wound to a close, the lame duck Congress was faced with coming up with a solution to the self-inflicted financial crisis known as the “fiscal cliff.“ Self-inflicted because it was created by the same gutless politicians during the debt ceiling negotiations in 2011 who were now wringing their hands in search of a solution. One of the gutless politicians involved in those 2011 negotiations was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell—a position McConnell must really enjoy since Republicans have remained the minority party since he was elected party leader in 2007. Unfortunately for American taxpayers, his gutlessness continued when he abandoned his No New Taxes promise after negotiating with Vice…

John McCain Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall Of Shame

As the Republicans continue their post-mortem of the November, 2012 election, an ever-growing chorus of voices—from members who call themselves Conservatives—are calling for drastic changes in how the party should operate in order to win in the future. Sadly, it isn’t the “batten down the hatches, full speed ahead” type of call you would expect from principled-politicians—isn’t that an oxymoron?—who actually stand for the things that earned them the support of Conservatives and organizations such as the T.E.A. Party. Instead, we are hearing calls of retreat and compromise, if not total abandonment. Enter John McCain, the next member of the Gutless On Principle Hall of…

John Boehner Enshrined In The G.O.P. Hall of Shame

As the tide of Obama’s socialist-leaning policies continued to rise, the T.E.A Party helped Republicans retake the House of Representatives in 2010 by supporting the election of Conservatives from across America. The beliefs of this new breed were based on the conviction that government was too big; it spent too much, taxed too much, regulated too much, and was slowly taking away the liberty of everyday Americans. With this as a backdrop, John Boehner was elected Speaker of the House, despite his lackluster leadership, which saw Republicans lose—in large numbers—control of the House in 2006 and 2008 and again losing…

G.O.P. – Gutless On Principles

G.O.P. – Gutless On Principles

Due to the frequency of an ever-increasing number of establishment Republicans who are more concerned about protecting their jobs–and the power that goes with it–than they are protecting their principles, we are announcing a new “honor” for the Gutless On Principles Republicans. The November election of 2012 was disappointing, if not heartbreaking. But as the G.O.P. reflects on the “why” for their losses, an growing number are devolving to the practice of appeasement and compromise, under the misguided–and politically convenient–idea that the reason they didn’t win was because they were too conservative; that is, not “moderate” enough.  The fallacy with this thinking is that we already know it doesn’t…

The 2012 Election – When America Lost Her Heart

This election has been difficult for me, not only because the most liberal President in American history was reelected, but also because of what it says about my country. There’s been a lot of armchair quarterbacking by politicians and pundits about what happened on November 6th and how the Republican Party can fix what’s broken. Sadly, most of the “solutions” offered have come to the conclusion that all the GOP needs to do to win in the future is to act more like Democrats. And in a way, they’re right. Because this election has proven that the results had little…
