The GOP is set to question Sebelius on health law

Sometimes I have to just shake my head in wonderment. My really BIG question is this; are they going to question Sebelius like they questioned Hillary Clinton regarding the attack in Benghazi? The GOP is set to question Sebelius on health law

Benghazi Never ForgetWASHINGTON (AP) - Republicans plan to seek answers from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the Obama administration’s troubled start for its health care website to buy insurance, and are raising concerns about the privacy of information that applicants submit under the new system.

GOP lawmakers said Sunday that the Obama administration will face intense scrutiny this week to be more forthcoming about how many people have actually succeeded in enrolling for coverage in the new insurance markets.

Will Kathleen Sebelius be able to get by with a hearty *Screw You* like Hillary did?

OK, Clinton didn’t really say *Screw You*, but that is exactly what she was thinking when she had her Benghazi meltdown and told Congress, What Difference Does It Make?.

Let’s face this cold hard truth America; maybe it really didn’t make any difference, what has Congress done so far in regards to the happenings in Benghazi? I’m thinking that the entire Obama administration, all of them, past and present, are feeling pretty smug right about now and are thinking that they may be *Teflon* coated. It sure looks like nothing is sticking to them so far.

I am more and more convinced, every day, that the U.S. Congress is, for the most part, as useless as a screen door on a submarine.

The only hope I see for America is for the Democrats to fall at the polls in 2014 and 2016 and even then, we need to PRAY that the GOP finds its own *set of balls* and becomes the GOP of days past, and if the ObamaCare debacle isn’t ALL the GOP needs to take control of BOTH Houses, then the GOP truly IS just as useless as Congress.

The story that prompted this comment comes from here: A year after Romney loss, GOP woes run even deeper.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A year after losing a presidential race many Republicans thought was winnable, the party arguably is in worse shape than before. The GOP is struggling to control tensions between its tea party and establishment wings and watching approval ratings sink to record lows.

It’s almost quaint to recall that soon after Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama, the Republican National Committee recommended only one policy change: endorsing an immigration overhaul, in hopes of attracting Hispanic voters.

The GOP has a lot of problems on its hands right now, not the least of which being the FACT that GOP leadership is even weaker under Reince Priebus than it was under Michael Steele.

That’s pretty weak leadership folks!

The GOP/RNC tries desperately to lay their issues off on the TEA Party and the division it is accused of bringing to the Republican Party.

The divisions suffered by the GOP are not merely *divisions* and minor disagreement on *policy*, the divisions suffered now are  DEEP and deadly crevices, cracks so deep that they threaten to destroy the GOP, but those cracks are NOT the fault of the TEA Party, the TEA Party just happened to have the guts to challenge the GOP.

The GOP has taken themselves, through a lack of leadership and Conservative policy, into a position where they are considered by many to be nothing more than Democrat Lite, and that doesn’t sit well with the TEA Party and Independent Conservatives.

The GOP has, for reasons known only to them, allowed people like John McCain, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell to sully the once good name of the GOP with their RINO antics.

A RINO, for those not knowing, is a Republican In Name Only and is as likely to take a stand against Conservatism, to take a stand with the Democrats as they are to take a stand with REAL Republicans and Conservatives.

RINOs are, at best, a *wild card* that can’t be counted on to know right from wrong.

For a third straight election, they hope to oust Republican incumbents they view as too willing to work with Democrats. Those targets could include 35-year veteran Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, whose resume includes managing the 1998 effort to impeach President Bill Clinton.

The targets SHOULD people like Sen. Thad Cochran and Sen. Lindsey Graham. Term limits should be one of the most important issues we face as Conservatives. No one should be allowed to serve more than 12 years in ANY political office, be it elected or appointed.


One other thing; using the idea that you managed the 1998 effort to impeach President Bill Clinton as a *high point* of your political career, tell me, how did that work out for you?

    After hearing Sebelius’ comments last week, I felt compelled to open a twitter account and respond:

    @Sebelius “The majority of people calling for me to resign… are people who I don’t work for…,” BS, Fed employees have 319 million bosses.

    These asshats consider themselves above the law and untouchable.

    I’m sure sebelius is shaking in her shoes from fear. As you correctly point out, a year after Benghazi and what has congress accomplished? What about Fast and Furious? What happened about the IRS?
    No, I’m convinced nothing will happen. There will be a semblance of ire, there will be some stern rebukes and there will be righteous anger from some, there will be snarkiness from others. Then when the cameras are off and the dust settles ABSOLUTELY NOTHING will be different. The media will find some way to blame the GOP. The government will ignore the ‘slings and arrows of outrageous (mis)fortune’ and stagger along ignoring the blindingly obvious: that after how many years of prep and with all the resources of the government of the mightiest nation on earth, this miserable malfunctioning limping lamentable excuse of a website is the best they can produce. What an embarassment.
    No one will take responsibility for this fiasco because that is what this gang of lowlifes does best: avoid avoid and avoid again, any possibility blame might attach to one of them.
    And nothing will change because the democrats play hard ball and the gop has none.
    And it has all become so damn predictable.

    Right on Fred, and I detect just a little respect for the TEA party. I don’t see any other way to motivate the anti-progressive, disgusted with the country club republican, dem-lite voters other than shouting from the blog sites to wake up America. Soros has just committed to back Hillary Rotten Cunton, and that means voter fraud the likes we’ve never seen before. I believe the voting machines, the company he is involved with, are programmed to provide a specific outcome. Look at the poll numbers for the candidates for mayor of N.Y. Are they skewed to provide cover for a certain outcome? I am afraid.

    Business as usual folks, just move on…

  5. Charles Phipps says:

    I’m extremely pessimistic about the entire thing. I have no confidence that the Democrats will suffer at the polls next November. And should I be wrong about that, I have no confidence that the Republicans will be bold enough to do what needs to be done. With a few exceptions, they are a conglomerate of wimps too scared of offending certain groups of voters. Excepting a few like Ted Cruz, to me they are all Democrats Lite and are just as worthless. It appears we are stuck with choosing one party that will destroy the country and the other party that will also destroy the country, just not quite as fast.

    What happened to the woman from the IRS who pleaded the 5th after she made a statement. She got away with giving no answers to anything.

    Hi Fred, I thought this was something nice to share considering the “norm” these days…. Al A POEM WORTH READING

    He was getting old and paunchy
    And his hair was falling fast,
    And he sat around the Legion,
    Telling stories of the past.

    Of a war that he once fought in
    And the deeds that he had done,
    In his exploits with his buddies;
    They were heroes, every one.

    And ‘tho sometimes to his neighbors
    His tales became a joke,
    All his buddies listened quietly
    For they knew where of he spoke.

    But we’ll hear his tales no longer,
    For ol’ Joe has passed away,
    And the world’s a little poorer
    For a Veteran died today.

    He won’t be mourned by many,
    Just his children and his wife.
    For he lived an ordinary,
    Very quiet sort of life.

    He held a job and raised a family,
    Going quietly on his way;
    And the world won’t note his passing,
    ‘Tho a Veteran died today.

    When politicians leave this earth,
    Their bodies lie in state,
    While thousands note their passing,
    And proclaim that they were great.

    Papers tell of their life stories
    From the time that they were young,
    But the passing of a Veteran
    Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

    Is the greatest contribution
    To the welfare of our land,
    Some jerk who breaks his promise
    And cons his fellow man?

    Or the ordinary fellow
    Who in times of war and strife,
    Goes off to serve his country
    And offers up his life?

    The politician’s stipend
    And the style in which he lives,
    Are often disproportionate,
    To the service that he gives.

    While the ordinary Veteran,
    Who offered up his all,
    Is paid off with a medal
    And perhaps a pension, small.

    It is not the politicians
    With their compromise and ploys,
    Who won for us the freedom
    That our country now enjoys.

    Should you find yourself in danger,
    With your enemies at hand,
    Would you really want some cop-out,
    With his ever-waffling stand?

    Or would you want a Veteran
    His home, his country, his kin,
    Just a common Veteran,
    Who would fight until the end.

    He was just a common Veteran,
    And his ranks are growing thin,
    But his presence should remind us
    We may need his likes again.

    For when countries are in conflict,
    We find the Veteran’s part,
    Is to clean up all the troubles
    That the politicians start.

    If we cannot do him honor
    While he’s here to hear the praise,
    Then at least let’s give him homage
    At the ending of his days.

    Perhaps just a simple headline
    In the paper that might say:

    PLEASE pass On The Patriotism! YOU can make a difference.
    If you are proud of our Vets, then send this to them. You’ll be glad you did.
    Then send it to ALL your friends.
