This article is about the CRomnibus bill. However, allow me to set up a preface to my point:
Can you imagine for a moment Ronald Reagan passing off a cliché as if it was from the bible? Yet Obama did. “As the good book says [Bible] People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”. Glass houses in the time of Jesus? Almost laughable. Well, in this case with this President it is laughable. Immediately people flocked to their Twitter account to create Obamabible quotes, such as: “Thou does not own it for thou did not buildith” ~ Obamdus 5:17. Allow me to type “LOL” here. Yet, in other news we hear from the retired ABC news journalist Ann Compton how behind closed doors Obama would go off on profanity laced tirades on the press for (in his opinion) bad coverage. An ironic accusation being the press has gone to great lengths to protect this president as it has no other to this extent.
Recently, Fox Business Network’s Melissa Francis said she was called into CNBC’s office and told she was “disrespecting the office of the president” by reporting about Obamacare and how the numbers didn’t add up. CBS’s ex-reporter Sharyl Attkisson also had similar experiences with her bosses at CBS to the point she wrote about it in her book “Stonewalled”. Of course you will all remember how the Obama administration spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen. I guess only MSNBC employees are safe.
Yet, this president does things in such a way that even being protected by much of the media (most of it), there are reporters out there trying to get to the real story. This does not sit well with this President. Yet daily something is in the news that is so outrageous how can not all news outlets report on it. From Obamacare, Executive Amnesty, Michelle’s school lunch program, Ebola invited into the country, dividing our people by having Eric Holder continue to stoke the fires of Ferguson. It almost seems that the IRS scandal, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, outrageous EPA regulations, VA Hospital scandal, etc. are so long long ago from a different time they fade away.
There are too much negative aspects to what this administration does daily, it is a large task for any reporter to keep up with it. That is unless you are in the President’s corner. Then all of these negative aspects are not negative at all. It is just the way it is, and that way is good, and if you object you are either a racist, a Neo-con, or just plain stupid. You are demonized as out of touch for loving the Constitution, liberty, our founding fathers, rule of law, Pro-life, etc. If you are really a staunch Conservative you are targeted by the press (and the administration’s long arms).
So when the people have had enough, they fight back with their votes. Mary Landrieu said on the floor of the Senate “If you don’t like the law (Obamacare) you can un-elect me”. That is exactly what people did. During the Mid-term elections it was clear that the wave of Republican victories were all about de-funding Obamacare, and stopping the Executive Amnesty, and much of other Obama policies. After all it was Obama himself who said “I am not running for election, but my policies are [paraphrasing]”. We spoke up, and loudly. Regardless if these elections were state by state [All politics is local- Tip O’Neil], we the people voted as if this was a national election. State by state going to the Republicans.
We celebrated as Democratic pundits on television scratched their heads in awe, trying so hard not to call this a wave. We celebrated that with all the media protection, with all the “policies” rejected by our votes, that finally, a great start to turn things around! Oh, but sadly it did not last long.
The bill that has become to be called the CRomnibus bill, a 1.1 trillion dollar bill to fund literally EVERYTHING from Obamacare, executive amnesty, Michelle’s lunch program, government worker raises, billions of dollars to other countries that have Ebola, etc. proved to us all that Boehner and company (RINO’s) are just as bad as the administration, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, etc. One may be a left wing, and one a right wing, but they belong to the same plane. Instead of 12 separate appropriation bills that would address individual policies that could either be accepted or rejected it was all placed into one with everything approved. This 1.1 trillion dollar bill so eagerly approved by the Senate and to be eagerly approved by Obama’s pen (and he knows how to use it). Yet, while true conservatives are upset about this bill, politicians like Elizabeth Warren is furious about it. This only because it brands the Republicans name on it, even though it was a bi-partisan bill. If this bill was from Harry Reid she would be dancing and praising such a bill.
Boehner dared not try this before the election. There would have been no wave of victory if he had. Republicans such as he want the conservative vote, but are not willing to represent them. Many conservatives stayed home in 2012 instead of voting for a moderate candidate like Romney. Dole, Mccain… and this will happen in bigger numbers in 2016. Mr. Boehner and company have secured another Democrat president win in 2016. That is, unless there is a true conservative candidate, but there most likely will not. No Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Mike Lee, etc. Instead, we will see the likes of Jeb Bush, Christie, etc. Carl Rove will sure to be supporting a moderate, and he will sure be confused again pondering why they lost.
We the conservatives are boxed in a corner. If we leave the Republican party as they no longer represent us, we ensure another Democrat president. If we stick to our principles and stay home on election day we ensure another Democrat president. If we vote for an independent, Libertarian, Tea Party candidate we split the vote and the win goes to the Democrats. Yet if we abandon our principals and bit the bullet and vote for a moderate, if he wins? we are no better off than if it was a Democrat who won. Big government, Obamacare, amnesty, all favorable to the moderate.
Yet, is giving up a choice? Certainly not. We have two years to convince Boehner to grow a spine. To convince those that are up for re-election we can get rid of them. Politicians react to their constituents. Write them. Do not be silent. After all, you too have a pen, and know how to use it.
God Bless America
