In this shutdown process, the @GOP proved that it is a lie that it will do whatever it takes to stop ObamaCare

Despite what the left, the media, and certain other dolts think, Cruz cannot stop a bill unless there are 40 other Republicans who vote with him.

He can object to a cloture vote, which would force a 3 day delay on voting for cloture and then another day before a final vote.

I'm frankly surprised he didn't object.

Do you know the Republican Party now can't wait to move on amnesty? Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor, they can't wait. Obama can't wait. After this cave on the shutdown or whatever you want to call it, the next move at light speed is gonna be for amnesty. The Republican Party is leading the way! It doesn't make any sense to me, not in the traditional political sense.

If the GOP Establishment thinks things are bad for them now, just wait until they try to win elections without the support of conservatives.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Go ahead and pout.  If you want to pick up your marbles and go home, the GOP will muddle along the best it can.

One thing's for sure, if the Tea Party adopts that strategy:  none of your candidates will get elected.

The mainstream of the Republican Party needs the Tea Party, but the Tea Party can't get any of its candidates into office without the mainstream Republicans.

Do you have paying job?  Just curious because your two cents seem to littering this forum lately on a 24/7 basis.

I'm not planning on pouting - I'm going to be organizing.

As for the GOP, why should I, or any conservative support them?

I'm tired of being bleeped up the keister. I don't want to be bleeped up the keister.

If I wanted to be bleeped up the keister, I'd put on a wig and hang out at wine and piano bars, or call Barney Frank for a date, but I don't.

You know why?

Because (a) I'm not gay, (b) Barney's fat and homely, and (c) any new takers would have to get in line behind the GOP leadership.

Maybe they can take turns with each other. I don't really care. In any event, as the late Samuel Goldwyn once said: "include me out".

Big WHOOP!   Everyone knows the GOP is good at "muddling".       :silly: 

If the political party wants to survive, the GOP needs to embrace a Tea Party renewal within its charter.  Otherwise the GOP will assume the mantle of the Whigs. 

I can live with either choice.    :smokin:

So then Rush and Mark and Sean can race to the ramparts and lead the fight. 
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Even though I knew this would happen, I'm still depressed with the republican party and their capitulation.  Obama must be laughing all the way to the ninth green.  :nometalk: :nometalk:

I think the republican establishment is satisfied with being the cave-in party.  After all, nothing  being done is affecting their perks, nor will it in the future.
It's the American people that have to pay the price for their stupidity.  Our leaders have turned into rulers and that includes the republican party.

You just seem to have a lot of time of your hands all day long .... and always seems to be looking for a fight.

Just wondering if a paying job might help you focus better.

That's all.

The Republican Party will return to its conservative roots, or it will cease to be.

The American people will no longer allow a one party system in Washington, DC.
