Ceiling Obama’s Fate

I don’t like Speaker Boehner or trust him.  Which just means I have a lot in common with your average conservative Republican congressman (that and skinny-dipping).  It bothers me that this is effectively the most powerful Republican in the federal government.  He’s going to compromise our best strengths away and we’re going to get screwed.   But I really have no idea what else the GOP in the House should do.

What’s really behind all of Obama’s problems?

Well, Jim Clyburn doesn’t believe that the Keynesian “save government jobs” project they sold as the must economic salvation of a lifetime, the stimuluspatronage bill, tapping the tax payers for $1 trillion plus by the time all is set and done, and basically doing nothing more than saving countless federal and state government jobs in democrat friendly country was a disaster.
