According to information from sources at the Capitol, Senate Republican leaders sided with both Barack Obama and the Democrats during a recent White House meeting, pushing aside House Republicans, particularly the Tea Party Republicans, who were seeking a short term raising of the debt limit to allow strong and robust discussions on both the national budget and the government shutdown. By siding with Democrats, the Senate Republican leadership appears increasingly unified with Democrats in a war against conservatives.
Senator John McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham were among the more supportive members within the Republican leadership to side with Democrats against the Tea Party during a White House meeting with President Obama.
No better confirmation of this newly hatched joint project between Old Guard Republicans and the Democrats is Barack Obama’s 180 reversal regarding the short term hike in the debt ceiling. Last week, under pressure from Democrats and opinion polls that had him falling in favorability among the American public, a weakened Obama openly declared himself willing to do a short term debt ceiling agreement in order to continue further negotiations with Republicans. This was a capitulation that was a direct result from the Tea Party members of Congress effectively winning the battle.
Apparently, that victory, and the Tea Party’s re-emerging influence in national politics, did not sit well with the Republican leadership. A Congressional source indicated a verbal warning travelled throughout the capitol that “enough was enough” and that those who had been or continued to be, part of the ”defund and shutdown options would be punished.”
The same Republican leadership then let Democrats and the White House know of their desire to work with them to re-open the government, dismiss the debt ceiling concerns, and most importantly – punish and eventually ERADICATE, the Tea Party members of Congress.
This has allowed President Obama to now dismiss a short term debt ceiling option – he is once again asking for EVERYTHING to be his way or the highway, and the Republican leadership is signaling that will be fine by them.
The 2014 primary races will commence in about 4 months folks. There are many Republicans who don’t deserve to be in Congress. You likely already know who they are. Do everything you can in your own state to send them home. Democrats and RINOS need not apply…. -UM
IN A WORLD GONE HORRIBLY WRONG, AMERICA NEEDS A NEW HERO.
