GIMME a BONER! GIMME a HILL'RY! WHATTA YOU GOT?





Fundamental Problems



I find myself consistently in tune with  Red State's Erick Erickson's pronouncements.  Here are two from yesterday that are, IMO, especially worth reading. 


The Fundamental Problem with a Jeb Bush Presidency (and a Hillary Clinton one)

I want you to do something you will not want to naturally do. You too Laura Ingraham. I want you all to do this because I consider it very important. I want you to presume you agree with Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton (your choice) on everything. I want you to presume that Jeb or Hillary is the ideal candidate in your mind. I know it is hard, but just do it. Presume that they are perfect.

Separate from the White House, John Roberts now leads a Supreme Court that very clearly can be persuaded by PR campaigns and is now constantly targeted to do what is right in terms of public relations and not necessarily the law or constitution.
Notwithstanding that, I think the nation would make a mistake handing the Presidency to either. The reason for that mistake has nothing to do with their positions on any issue. I would gladly support Jeb Bush were he the nominee of the Republican Party. I do not have the hostility toward him some of my friends have.  [Continued]




John Boehner Uses an Outside Group to Attack Conservatives


The American Action Network claims to be a “conservative” group. It was started by prominent Republican, Fred Malek, who maintains close ties to the Establishment and was Finance Co-Chairman of Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) Presidential campaign. It is run by Mike Shields, formerly of the National Republican Congressional Committee. Prior to Shields, Brian Walsh of the NRCC ran it. It was founded by former Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)4 and previously run by Rob Collins of Cantor’s office. Collins is now at the NRSC. Former Republican Senator Norm Coleman is Chairman of the Board.

The group operates as an outside entity for Rep. John Boehner (R-OH). On the same day even the establishment oriented Wall Street Journal editorial page is suggesting Boehner go, Fred Malek’s group has begun attacking conservative congressmen. Malek and the American Action Network want conservative congressmen to cave and fund Barack Obama’s executive amnesty plan.

In Georgia, they have already begun running ads against Congressmen Barry Loudermilk and Jody Hice. Loudermilk and Hice, who voted for Boehner as Speaker, are now being attacked by Speaker Boehner’s outside interests. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) of Kansas is in the same boat along with Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). [Continued]

Bridenstine is my representative. He is one of the few who represent what I want.
