McConnell warned President Barack Obama on the floor Tuesday against “thumbing his nose” at the GOP and insisting that “if Republicans aren’t willing to do things his way, he won’t do anything at all.”

Typical teabagger.

When Boehner struck a conciliatory bipartisan tone last week, McConnell took a hard line against Obama with a simple message: no tax hikes. When Boehner called on the president to lead him to a deal, McConnell took a sharper line, warning that Obama “doesn’t own the place.”

No, but Grover still owns your ass.

McConnell talked to a conservative opinion writer for The Wall Street Journal and gave exclusives to conservative outlet Breitbart News ensuring his party will not simply cave to the president’s demands.

To make SURE Grover reads it.

For McConnell, who faces reelection in 2014 for a sixth term in a state growing where anti-Obama feelings run strong, it gives him even less incentive to shift to the middle to get a deal with the president.

5 Terms?

McTurtle needs to go.

Boner.

10 Terms.

Needs to go.

Grover will take care of them.

White House insists it was unaware of Petraeus scandal until day after election wink wink. Is there anything Obama knows. He denies knowing anything about Fast and Furious, Libya, Syria and Petraeus........he claims he knows nothing. I believe him. The leader that never leads.

Boehner and McConnel are two of the biggest idiots in the Republican party. Boehner is probably the bigger phony. Now he wants an amnesty for IAs. As an independant who leans right, I'd like to see them both go along with the rest of the neocon idiots.

I'd like to see ALL of them go. We limit the president to two terms, so why do these 535 clowns get lifetime membership in government. Too many people shout that Election Day is a form of term limits for Congress, and in theory, it should be. But we all know how that works out, right? Ted Kennedy drives a woman into a creek and contributes to her death, yet his returned to the Senate for 6 more terms after. Strom Thurmond is doddering, inncoherent, and sleeping at his desk in the Senate, yet he is overwhelmingly voted back in. The system is broken! Limit senators to 2 terms, and representatives to 4 two-year terms. And that'll be the end of this country's worst form of entitlement. And it will hopefully limit the influence that Big Business and Big Labor lobbies have on our so-called 'leaders'. Maybe they'll start following the dictates of what WE want, not cozying up to whoever is providing their next 'fact-finding trip'.

This falls on republicans. The FBI reported to Eric Cantor but Cantor kept it secret and reported to no one which republicans are furious and came out publicly and said why were they not told. Why did Cantor keep this secret--was he waiting for the election to be over. What did the Patraeus lover know about the incident and deaths in Libya. Cantor is known to be very ruthless and ambitious wanting Boehner's job. Was he setting up the Speaker of the House or Obama and something went awry in his plans that he shoved it under the rug. Cantor has explaining to do for sure!

They get in over and over due to "districting" Boehner had no one running against him in his district. They stack the deck with being in districts that has the majority vote on their side. Its how Stom Thurmond was 100 years old and still in office and did not know the time of day. That is being changed as we speak around the country so that it goes back to a statewide people vote.

Will Boehner support the Obama's socialistic revolution and driving the private sector out of business for government rule of the American industry, energy, healthcare and what not? Obviously, Obama will continue pushing his socialistic revolution and transfer of the rule of America to the liberal unions together with the food stampers, illegal invaders and foreign students from China and Saudi Arabia, unemployed, disabled, illiterate and uneducated Americans that are now have the majority in America. Obama will continue to target the Republican, Independent and conservative 'rich' to pay more and more so that he can pay more trillions of dollars to buy the votes of the food stampers, illegals and unemployed that live on his monthly checks. In addition, Obama will continue to push the Obama care for 30 million illegals and foreign students that will drive the health system to full collapse with no Doctors, no drugs and no hospital beds for the Republicans, conservatives and Independents that will be put in the back of the waiting list. Will America survive four more years under the communist dictator and Jihadist Mozlem brother culture scholar Barack Hussein Obama? Probably not.

The Election is Over.
America voted to surrender, submit and OBEY The Obama. We all must refocus on preparing our children to settle for a much bleaker future.

Email your Congressperson and demand that they rubber stamp anything Pelosi demands of them. America voted to fail. Repubs must cower on the sidelines in service to The Obama during our transition to tax slavery to Big Brother.

Time for a real third party. No more of this. The Repubs corrupted the tea party and also gave us another RINO loss ans would have kept the wars going and more. Come January we will be sold out again with the judges making sure. All of you military people. Families and all. You know it. Our freedoms are being eliminated while self serving people get away with every wrong known to mankind. Oh well!

McConnelly serves only Grover Norquist and the RINO TEA Party. His primary goal was to make President Obama a one-term President all at the expense of America, the economy, and the working middle class. I hope this career politician is shown the door in 2014.

You whine about our children's future.....but you REFUSE to pay down the war debt amassed by Bush and the GOP. IT'S STILL THERE. If you were TRULY sincere about your concern, then you would pay it down....to preserve our children's future.

But I sense only phony outrage from you.

While they DO have some of the dumb, authoritarian oafishness of cops, they're basically both just bad human beings. They're arrogant, obnoxious, partisan, incompetent, self-righteous GOP tools. They don't belong in Congress. They don't belong in any more important job than selling farm machinery or running a small accounting firm, in fact.

They suck.
