I think it is time Grover Norquist did some explaining

Bob Belvedere lays out some troubling facts

Michelle Malkin lays out the dots and connects them in a series of Tweets from this morning:

Hey, remember when I told young people at CPAC back in Marchto ask: “Who is Abdurahman Alamoudi?”==> twitter.com/michellemalkin…

Well, Norquist’s convicted jihadist pal Abdurahman Alamoudi is also founder of the Boston bombers’ radical mosque ==> freep.com/article/201304…

Lie down with Jihadists, wake up with blood on your hands, eh, Grover?

Mrs. Malkin ends by asking a very important question:

Psst. The GOP has shameful terror ties to Boston bombers’ radical mosque. Will more conservatives finally speak up?=>michellemalkin.com/2013/04/24/abd…

Well Grover?


The Fiscal Cliff? Or the Left’s Agenda

George Will takes a baseball bat to Obama’s “balanced” approach to debt reduction

Even Jonathan Swift, who said promises and pie crusts are made to be broken, might have marveled at the limited shelf life of Barack Obama’s promise of a “balanced” deficit-reduction plan — substantial spending cuts to accompany revenue increases.

Obama made short shrift of that promise when he demanded $1.6 trillion in immediate tax increases and mostly unspecified domestic cuts.

He also promised to cut $800 billion from 10 years of war spending that will end in two years, which is like “cutting” $800 billion by deciding not to build a ski resort on Mars.

Year after year, the Democratic-controlled Senate, ignoring the law, refuses to pass budgets.

Year after year, Washington makes big government cheap by charging Americans only $6 for every $10 of government services, borrowing the difference. And the biggest purchaser of U.S. government debt is not China but … the U.S. government, largely through the Federal Reserve.

Yet what supposedly is horrifying is a sequester that would cut less than 3% of federal spending over the next decade? Or horrible Grover Norquist

Go read it all. The fact is this, it is the gross and irresponsible spending orgy that has gotten us into such debt, and raising taxes will do nothing to fix the problem. Only DECREASING the spending will do that! If Congress or the president were serious about cutting the deficit, they would end the Departments of Labor, Education, and Energy, they would reign in the EPA, and they would simplify the tax code by doing away with most deductions and reducing and flattening the tax rates. And yes, they would end the insanity of the progressive tax code. Of course, the fewer deductions, the less cheating on taxes, and that would help increase revenues WITHOUT punishing honest taxpayers. And, the less cheating would also make it possible to spend less on the IRS. And yes, they would repeal ObamCare IMMEDIATELY! They would also end many of the useless regulations that restrict businesses, leading to economic growth, more jobs, and more taxpayers. I am sorry but this is not as complicated as the politicians tell us. I am not saying the solutions are all easy, but using a bit of common sense, we could really make a dent in the deficit, and we could get around to reforming entitlements, which are the biggest problem of all.


Time for Senator Saxby Chambliss to retire

When a Republican starts endorsing tax hikes, it is time for that Republican to go. RS McCain suggests that Georgia Senator Saxyby Chambliss (RINO) might be ready to join Former Republican Charlie Crist in retirement

Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss can blame no one else for his self-destructive decision to repudiate his pledge to Georgia taxpayers. His foolish decision to demonize Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform virtually guarantees that Chambliss would face a well-funded and well-organized primary challenge in 2014, if Chambliss were to choose to run for re-election in 2014.

But he won’t.

Mark my word, the handwriting on the wall will become clear enough pretty soon and, by mid-2013 at the latest, Chambliss will announce that he will retire rather than seek re-election.

Well there is your bold political prognostication. Given Chambliss is getting on in years, and given that he will surely be primaried now, McCain is likely right. But, in any case we, the people need to make sure Chamblisss goes the way of Charlie Crist

Just as it was necessary to prevent John Cornyn and Jim Greer from “anointing” Charlie Crist as the Florida GOP Senate nominee in 2010, so now it is necessary to retire Saxby Chambliss.

Agreed! I hope Chambliss steps aside, and lets a more capable, principled Republican take his place in 2014. The fact is that we send more than enough money to Congress, there is no revenue problem, there is a SPENDING problem! Congress must begin tackling the SPENDING addiction now. Any increase in tax rates, or any closing of deductions without reducing tax rates will simply exacerbate the problem!

Ya know, I used to really admire Michele Bachmann……………

But, then she started making up “facts” first about Rick Perry, now about Newt Ace has the latest

Michele Bachmann: A Crying Woman Came Up To Me After The Debate And Told Me Newt Gingrich Is Paying Money To Tea Party Groups For Their Endorsement

I made the part up about the “crying woman,” but yes, that is the newest allegation from Ms. Bachmann.

Michele Bachmann lives in a strange world. People talk about “moral relativism.” Presumably they would claim she’s not a moral relativist.

But truth is an objective fact, is it not?

Ms. Bachmann seems to confuse premises which are politically helpful to her for premises which are actually true.

William Jacobson lists some of Bachmann’s earlier tactics here

She’s still the person who built her campaign in the early summer around trashing Sarah Palin via Ed Rollins and was happy to ride that wave while it lasted.

She has not been accurate in her portrayal of her own immigration statements earlier in the debates, and she is running around repeating endlessly something that is patently false, that Newt Gingrich wants amnesty for 11 million people, and she has falsely termed a letter Gingrich (along with Grover Norquist, Jack Kemp and others) signed in 2004 in support of a guest worker program an “amnesty” plan.  Repeating things endlessly does not make them true, and we can do better than that.

Her performance in going after Rick Perry caused Steve Hayward of Power Line Blog to give up on her.

She has been the only candidate explicitly to try to take advantage of Herman Cain’s latest problems by saying it shows that she is the only consistent candidate. 

Truly sad, Bachmann behaves more like a Democrat all the time. As I have said before, I do not mind candidates going after each others records but this fabrication game ought to be beneath a Conservative.
