BREAKING: The light at the end of the tunnel… 30 Dec 2010 @ 07:07Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Breaking News , comments closed
…possibly has been turned back on. Check this one out.
Incoming House Speaker John Boehner and his Republican colleagues are acutely aware of public anger over how Congress operates… and plan to do something about it.
“They see a government in Washington that isn’t listening, doesn’t get it, and frankly the American people think that Washington doesn’t really care,” Boehner recently said.
And Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) says, “I was elected with a mandate to change the status quo. We have to change the way we do business in Washington.”
So when Republicans take control of the House, they want to implement some new rules.
Well, as several of the commenters mention, this sounds good but I’ll believe it when I see it.
But these paragraphs right here give me the most hope that change is coming. REAL change and not the Jugears McHopenchange variety.
Republicans will also require lawmakers to take another step, says Jason Chaffetz. “When you submit your piece of legislation, you’re gonna actually have to cite constitutional authority for that bill.”
In fact, Republicans plan to read the constitution on the floor when they return next week.
And that’s only the beginning. They also want hearings to expose the details of any regulations proposed by the administration that are not specified in legislation approved by Congress.
Looks like the radar teams here at the Southern Command have a new target to track in the new year. If Boehner, Chaffetz, and other freshman reps can do what they are saying here it actually could be interesting to watch C-SPAN again. Just for the chance to see the progressives go into apoplectic shock.
Romney bows out 7 Feb 2008 @ 12:03Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Politics , comments closed
Well, it looks like the only person left on the GOP ticket for conservatives to rally for has decided to call it quits.
"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror"
Can’t say that I could argue with that line of reasoning……
Romney’s final pitch was to label McCain a liberal like Clinton and Obama, a charge tantamount to heresy in the GOP. He was backed by conservative media voices like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter.
Hey Yahoo, you forgot Glenn Beck!
Okay, are conservative voters going to commit "voting suicide" or just choose "None of the Above"?
