End of days and John Boehner. Tomorrow is supposed to bring the Mayan apocalypse. This evening John Boehner has the House voting on his “Plan B” fiscal-cliff-avoidance proposal. Meaningless coincidence, or did the Mayans know something?

What do you all think of Gingrich replacing Boehner? The Speaker does not have to be a current House member and I think Boehner is done. The GOP House members clearly do not trust or support him. someone who can communicate effectively with a huge set is critical right now. If not Gingrich, then who?

OK, Gingrich has a reputation, and could motivate the party, but he is kinda RINO in a lot of his views, so I’m a little leery.
If we want someone with a high profile, that can rally support, and would really tick off the left, we could consider Sarah Palin. I know it’s a little unrealistic, but it would be interesting.
If we want someone that would get things done without being terribly controversial, then Paul Ryan or Rick Santorum.

I like Santorum and Ryan but understand the scare games the Democrats and the media would play on them. Santorum would be portrayed as a religious scary while Ryan would be portrayed as throwing Granny off the cliff. I wish Sarah would study up on the issues a bit because she is telegenic and has charisma. I think Rubio is going to be tough to beat in 2016 if we have an election because of a powerful argument he can make: I can even up the Hispanic vote and win the White House. The only other possibility is someone we don’t know yet who is smart and has charisma.

My primary problem with Rubio is that he has put it out there that he would support a DREAM Amnesty. Then, there are some rumblings about him having misused a credit card he was given by the Fl GOP. Supposedly, he used it to do some work on his house. He did pay it back, but there might be some nastiness over it during a campaign.

I can’t see Sarah. She is just tooooo “out there.” And she has made some appalling public statements tat havecome back to bite her in the behind. Paul Ryan, maybe, though he want to cut the pittance I get from Social Security and cancel my Medicare.

No he doesn’t if you’re over 55. I have other issues with Ryan but that isn’t one of them. We need more than just a budget wonk as Speaker. He’s good but not seasoned enough.

Maybe if she gave all her speeches in skimpy lingerie. More people would pay attention. They might turn off the sound, though.

Not to be a “Richard”, but I see Newt and Gov. Palin, especially since she really caught the learning curve, as more spokespersons of the ideas, not the ‘face’ of the party. Let’s face it, preaching to the choir doesn’t win elections. We have to fight these people on their terms and win minds, not votes.

poppajoe49
Member

I threw Palin in as a way of tweking the noses of the left.
Realize that we aren’t trying to win election votes, but congressional votes. What we are looking for is someone that will unite the party, and get things moving along in the house.

What urinates me off, in a superficial way at first blush… is we had that with the ‘Tea Party’ enthusiasm, and they blew it off.

So what’s the difference in D & R when all they want to do is keep power? Why keep up the effort if the people you put there keep on keeping on?

GhostntheMachine

Hope you enjoyed the ‘real’ [_]3, thanks, just sent me scrambling for research. Always thought Newt was a great idea guy, let’s do this this way, doesn’t translate to todays ‘President’ for TV but the man is brilliant in his own way.

I knew you didn’t have to be a ‘lawyer’ to sit on the Supreme Court, but the House can elect anyone speaker? Hmmm, thanks for today’s research project.

For those who called it, Boehner pulled the bill and went on Vaca. Fiscal cliff here we come!

It’s the 21st. I’m still around. Anyone with me?

Right here. As I expected.

Ummmm, just an observation, but it’s Friday, December 21, 2012.
I am pretty sure I am still here, but I might just be a figment of my imagination. But wait, would I not still need to be alive to imagine myself?
Or, perhaps I am just imagining I am still alive to imagine myself still being alive.

Now I am confused.
Will some one please tell me if the world ended yet?
I am pretty sure it is tomorrow somewhere in the world if it has not ended for them.

No, darlin’…I’m still here to pester people.

poppajoe49

YAY!! THe world is still here, and there is still the tiny shred of hope that some day I may get to kiss drb!
More likely though, is the possibiity that I might reconcile with the best girl I ever dated.

drb

yeah, the world is still here…which means mother coming to visit today…(God help me).

It will be alright, I can put up with her husband for a day…maybe.

(note I do not call him my step-father…nuff said)

JPTravis

Maybe you should wear that new blanket with sleeves, scare him away.

drb
Member

Maybe he should wear the new snuggie and not run around the downstairs nekkid cuz he helped himself to a sample of absolutely everything in the bar area. my kids are scarred for life!

JPTravis
Member

Ewww, your step-dad ran around your house naked? I think there’s a little-known clause in the Constitution that allows you to revoke his citizenship for that.

flashingscotsman
Member

I concur. And I don’t even drink.

poppajoe49
Member

That would get him banned from my house!

“Sorry mom, he has to replace the bottle before I even think about letting him back in!
Then we’ll discuss his naked escapade!”

drb
Member

I know! Bottle hadn’t even been opened yet.

poppajoe49

Well, that’s just rude! How dare he drink your good Bourbon!

drb

Well you would prolly know more about that than I

JPTravis

All I was gonna say is usually the coke comes BEFORE the woody.

drb
Member

Just like my dad, woody and coke on the rocks. Oh yeah that can be twisted all kinds of ways, and yeah, I know you’re gonna go there. Already LMAO

JPTravis
Member

Oh. My bad. How do you drink it? Straight up, on the rocks, under the dining room table?

drb
Member

Way to deliberately mis-read there JP…see the link…that’s the woody I’m talking about…and apparently you wish you had! Cuz that is the good stuff. No hang over…Gauranteed.

JPTravis
Member

You have a woody? (Retiring in awkward silence.)

drb
Member

That would be “my mother’s husband”…There is a reason it’s just for ONE day and one day ONLY!

and worse…He drank my Woody, dammit, I was savin’ that!

I saw a commercial recently, a group of people was tailgating at a ball game, all wearing their blankets with sleeves. Uh-huh.

{that would be me, pointing out the absolutely only>>>>

Dang it! Daggone dust bunnies!

I think it ended for me halfway though your comment.

It is 11:37 CST and nothing looks different here. Other that the temp dropping to 27 or something last night, which is unusual, but certainly not unheard of.

flashingscotsman

Of course, ooddballz, we COULD all just be lying to you, to keep you from being upset.

DefHarryMelon

No, it has not terminated or even been assaulted with some cosmosis from the nethers. The real trouble is still being perpetrated in high places. None of this will prevent the next giant hoax for money from suckers. Y2K was a real boon for a bunch of crunchy businesses. The mayan calendar sales will drop soon. Real bargains to be had in that market.

John Boehner is leading the establishment Republicans into extinction. Hopefully soon, because it’s time to really consider a hostile takeover of the GOP or a 3rd party that actually stands for constitutional ideals…in other words, conservatism.

The Iceland Shuffle. It may be a little tricky to put that sort of thing – the removal of the corrupt government and their corrupt banker and elitist buddies, and tossing their asses in the can – together, but it sounds like a good way to move truly onward with the original plans set forth by those old Founding Father guys.

poppajoe49

If the world ends tomorrow, at least we won’t have to live through another 4 years of Obama.
My only regrets would be that I never got to kiss drb, and that I never reconciled with the best girl I ever dated.

Boehner can’t get enough votes. Perhaps they can get enough to replace him.

Obama will cry tears of joy.

What!? Don’t say that, I didn’t pay any of my bills this month and blew all my money on a huge going away party last night.

flashingscotsman

You could have afforded to have a giant rocking unicorn at your party! I tried to get a paid gig last night for one of the parties, explaining that they wouldn’t need the money anyway, after today. No go. I guess I’m just too expensive.

What makes you think the EOTW is going to spread across the globe like a massive sunset, captive to some concept of time? BOOM!

That’s right, it’s already the 21st there… hey, are you SURE they’re still there? Could you be talking to Mayan spirit guides attempting to fool you?

I guess defunding that damn healthcare bill is not an option either, right?
