Central Ohio Republican Congressman Pat Tiberi says he was frustrated by the House Republican leadership strategy used in the recent government shutdown fight.

"They believe we were Florida A&M going against Ohio State on a football Saturday with this strategy," said Tiberi. "A strategy where you can't win in the end."

The 76-0 Buckeyes romp over Florida A&M earlier this season is the analogy Tiberi uses to describe the House GOP strategy against Pres. Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate.

"I think there is a majority of us in the House now that believe the strategy was wrong, but there wasn't at the beginning," said Tiberi.

As to who was responsible for directing the GOP tactics during the shutdown, Tiberi points to Senator Ted Cruz, who had insisted on defunding Obamacare - despite the GOP being a minority in the U.S. Senate.

"My question to Senator Cruz, if he were sitting right here, would be 'If 46 Republicans can stand together and win, how does that add up to 67?’ It doesn't," said Tiberi. "My 10-year-old daughter knows you can't defund Obamacare because you have to have 67 votes to override a veto by a president named Obama."

no.

How much liability insurance am I required to have?

California requires that drivers and vehicle owners carry the following minimum monetary limits:
•$15,000 for injury or death of 1 person per accident
•$30,000 for injury or death of 2 or more persons per accident
•$5,000 for any property damage per accident

Evidence of financial responsibility must be carried at all times in the vehicle. Most Californians maintain financial responsibility through insurance companies, which provide the policy holder with an identification card to be used as evidence of coverage. The card must state the insurance company's name and address, the period of coverage, and policy number.

Persons operating a vehicle in this state who are unlicensed or have an invalid California or out-of-state driver license are subject to the same financial responsibility laws as valid California licensed drivers.

Small-Government Conservative Self-Sabotage (II)

Dan McCarthy once again spells out how the shutdown gambit–and the attitude behind it–undermined the cause of reducing the size and power of the government:

But is anyone who is psychologically satisfied by actions that in fact cost taxpayers additional money, and that are counterproductive in the public arena, really an opponent of big government? A feeling of courageous satisfaction here is perverse: it subverts the principle it’s supposed to support.

Imagine what the Tea Party would accomplish if this incident became paradigmatic: government would grow, anti-government sentiment would be discredited, and the people responsible for both would continue to applaud themselves as the only true champions of limited-government principle.

This touches on points that Dan and I have made before. It does no good to say that one is defending a principle by adopting tactics that are sure to fail and bring greater disfavor on the principle. Far from persuading more people to support what small-government conservatives seek, this actively drives them away and makes them even more skeptical of what those conservatives want.

It does conservatives no favors to celebrate poor judgment by the politicians that claim to speak for them, but that is what many conservative admirers of Cruz and his allies expect. It does nothing to persuade people already wary of trusting Republicans with power that they should pay more attention to conservative arguments when those arguments are linked with gratuitous and pointless political stunts. Because small-government conservatism is a harder sell than many of the alternatives, it is especially important for its advocates to make good judgments about what is possible and to make sound decisions that prove that they are capable of running a government of reduced and limited powers. Neither of these has been on display in the last few weeks, everyone can see it, and it would be senseless for anyone to offer up spin to the contrary. Conservative voters are frequently failed by their putative leaders, who tell them flattering and self-serving stories that allow them to believe that their interests are being served by whatever it is that the leaders happen to be doing. When that is not the case, it is important to say so and to warn conservative voters that the people claiming to represent them are in error.

Information Technology experts, outside and inside the government, have figured out the reason why the website for Obamakare's federally-sponsored insurance exchange is crashing.

Healthcare.gov forces you to create an account, a self-incrimination surveillance program requiring detailed personal information selling yourself out before you can shop for obamakare. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government gathers, a surveillance program that verifies your personal information and decides whether or not you're eligible for subsidies or handouts.

HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run slowly, and are more afraid letting people see first the underlying cost of Obamakare's insurance plans would scare people away.

facebook hates obamacare: Read the hate-filled posts and see ads pandering to blacks, losers, and hispanics... https://www.facebook.com/Healthcare.gov...

If not for obamakare, the Tea Party would not have been a great success..

It's the culture....
