Here's A Post About Something

I gotta run out. I hope Hot Air had something interesting here.

Added [rdbrewer]: Something to consider. Erick Erickson points out the poll was conducted by David Winston, a John Boehner adviser.

David Winston is rigging a poll to get some desired results.

Winston is a John Boehner adviser and his preferred pollster. In fact, internally, some Republicans grouse that Beohner uses Winston to direct his lead on issues instead of just . . . well, you know. . . leading.

Check out David Winston’s poll question.

In a national survey of 1,000 registered voters done July 31 and August 1, the question, from pollster David Winston, said, “Some members of Congress have proposed shutting down the government as a way to defund the president’s health care law” and asked respondents whether they favored or opposed that plan.

Yeah, it's a crap poll, designed to grab a few headlines.

But I'm still fine with a gambit to pass legislation that defunds Obamacare and let Reid's Senate "shut down" the government "because of those evil Republicans who forced us to."

You know what the least likely entity on this planet to be shut down is? A Federal Government in hock for trillions of dollars still in possession of a printing press.

Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" is a 1939 song written by Harold Arlen and Yip
Harburg. It first appeared in the 1939 Marx Brothers movie At the
Circus and became one of Groucho Marx's signature tunes. In 1950 Groucho
famously 'stopped' trading at the New York Stock Exchange by
commandeering a microphone and singing the song before telling jokes for
15 minutes, during which time traders suspended their work to watch him
perform.

Posted by: other poll questions at August 22, 2013 06:46 PM (wAQA5)

88 There needs to be a fight about shutting down the government.

It doesn't need to be an Obamacare fight. In fact, it should not be.

It should instead be over the exceeding of the previously negotiated debt ceiling.

The national debt clock was basically stopped three months ago by Obama and Jack Lew. They hit the snooze alarm on it, because it was just about to roll over the $17T mark and cause another debt ceiling fight.

They don't want another debt ceiling fight. So they're basically breaking the law to avoid having one.

Protip: if your adversary doesn't want to fight on a particular hilltop, then be sure to make them fight on that hilltop. There can only be one major fight at a time. No one has the stomach for parallel battles.

Here's the deal. If there's another debt ceiling fight, and the GOP loses, what happens? The debt continues to rise. Well, that's the status quo ante. Nothing lost there.

But if we have an Obamacare fight, and lose, we are stuck with Obamacare. If we have an amnesty fight, and lose, we're stuck with amnesty.

Pick the lowest risk option. Make the fight over the debt ceiling, and hurry the fuck up.

Manning shouldn't make assumption like that.
Not long after DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo went to prison in VA he demanded that they respect his religion and serve him vegetarian food. The prison complied by serving him their infamous "veggie loaf" every night, which is a form of punishment for unruly prisoners (since food is one of the simple pleasures one can still enjoy in prison). So then Malvo's lawyer demanded that they start feeding him the standard menu because the vegetarian option was not tasty. The prison told him to pound sand because that is the only vegetarian entree they offer. Not sure if this ever got resolved, but it sure taught Malvo a lesson on making demands.

98 Oh, and here's another thought the GOP would do well to reflect upon:

Everyone on the right starts bitching loudly when Obama takes his customary long out of town vacations.

No! Knock it off with that shit!

It's best if he IS out of town all the time. Every hour that Obama spends on a golf course at a luxury resort is an hour he's not making new mischief.

The time to turn up the heat is when he comes BACK to D.C. As soon as he returns, make being there unpleasant. Drag him into long boring negotiations. Make him sit through ten hours straight of Paul Ryan doing budget math. Ask him hard questions about policy while in public. Obama hates all of those things.

The guy is intrinsically lazy. Cater to that. Make sure the only time he has any peace and quiet is when he's outside of the Beltway.

The bad optics of the President on the golf course *again* will speak for themselves and don't need to be openly voiced by the opposition.

100 I recall reading about a suit over a bakery that refused to make a
wedding cake for a same sex wedding ceremony. It seems that the poor
dears can't accept anyone refusing their business. Methinks they doth
protest too much.


Current case in WA involving a florist. Said florist provided flowers to the couple previously, but chooses not to do so for the wedding.

*bzzt* says WA AG, who chose to pursue legal action on his own with no outside pressure.

102 No! Knock it off with that shit!

It's best if he IS out of town
all the time. Every hour that Obama spends on a golf course at a luxury
resort is an hour he's not making new mischief.


You do know that a lot of the mischief he makes is done through functionaries, right? He appoints hard lefties into key positions and gives them zero oversight.

104 Hell yeah it's a crap poll.

They probably used a cherry-picked list of their most faithful centrists to call.

And on top of that...they tailored the question to automatically get a "No".

105 These guys are planning to fail.

The failure to communicate with the American people, the failure to compete with the Democrats on a weekly basis, is not something they accept as a problem to be solved.

They consider that a reality to be accepted and made a factor in Republican planning.

These are the schmucks that made Herman Cain and Lee Iaccoca into winners. Because those guys came on board and refused to plan to fail. They worked at winning. They demanded everybody who wanted to keep their job, work at winning.

Several things happen with people who plan to win. First, they feel better about working at all. Second, they win more often. Third, they gain public support as winners. Fourth, they gain more resources to keep winning.

If the point of the Republican Party is to reward career not-Democrats with big titles, mission accomplished. If the point of the Republican Party is to empower millions of people who reject the Democrat worldview, it needs to try to imagine being a winning competitor.
