The Heritage Foundation says of Boehner’s “counter-offer” to Barack Obama, “At first blush, it appears little more than categorical, pre-emptive capitulation.”
In this bloggers not so humble opinion, Boehner is a disgrace and either should resign of be removed from the position of Speaker of the House.
It’s high time we rid ourselves of the Vichy Republicans selling out conservatives under their false banner.

Unbelievable that the more Rob McKenna campaigns for Washington State Governor, the further left his positions are. It’s almost as if he is a secret plant for the campaign of Democrat Jay Inslee.
He has claimed to disagree with homosexual marriage. Then come out against the Boy Scouts of America banning homosexuals from their leadership ranks, ignoring the huge scandal of the early 1990’s where homosexual males had molested young boys over the years.
He fought to ensure homosexual activists received the names, addresses and signatures of everyone who signed the R-71 petition opposing the so called “everything but marriage” domestic partnership law.
Early on he distanced himself from very successful Republican governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker and has stated that Washington State public unions have nothing to fear from him, adding that he feels collective bargaining is their right, even as we in the private sector continue to tighten our belts that they are reluctant to do.
The more we hear from him, the more he sounds like a liberal Democrat, not a conservative Republican.

It’s not like Clark County voters weren’t warned about JayRob McInslee (Rob McKenna) and his liberalism. And he sure didn’t waste any time expressing support for the very project conservatives in Clark County have been denied a vote, ignored and opposed from day one.
A late Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Columbin article, the unofficial daily newsletter for the CRC & Democrat Party praises McKenna for backing the CRC during a speech at a Rotary Club meeting in Vancouver.
McInslee said, “There has to be a new crossing. We can’t sit back and continue to consume what we have and not replace it. And it’s absolutely vital to our economy.”
Obviously he is clueless as to how many have tried to speak out and advocate additional bridges across the Columbia River.

The dust has yet to settle on just what all the full implications will be over the Supreme Courts astonishing decision to subject the American people to the largest tax increase in the history of our country, also known as Obamacare or the Affordable care Act.
An unprecedented decision that allows the American citizens to be taxed if we do not purchase health insurance as directed by the elitist government.
Shortly after the decision was announced this morning, the Republican Governor’s Association issued a statement expressing their opposition to the act.
The statement said in part,
“Today’s ruling crystallizes all that’s at stake in November’s election. The only way to stop Barack Obama’s budget-busting health care takeover is by electing a new president.”
“Barack Obama’s health care takeover encapsulates his Presidency: Obamacare increases taxes, grows the size of government and puts bureaucrats over patients while doing nothing to improve the economy.”

Seattle Times reporting, “Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, said she supports gay marriage legislation in the Senate — giving proponents the 25 votes needed for passage.”
Four Republican legislators are being reported as signing on to the bill as well. They are Sen. Steve Litzow, Sen. Cheryl Pflug as well as King County councilman Reagan Dunn (who thinks Republicans will elect him as Attorney General), and two House Republicans, Rep. Glenn Anderson and Rep. Maureen Walsh who co-sponsored the house bill.
In the meantime, a $1.5 Billion budget gap, high unemployment and struggling taxpayers take a back seat to legalizing homosexuals to marry.
This blog will not support any Republican who supports this homosexual marriage bill.
Some so called conservatives are expressing it is time that we conservatives “let go” and allow this to pass. What kind of values do you have if you aren’t willing to stand for them?
I am left wondering, where is Kirby Wilbur and the WSRP as these 5 RINO’s abandon the GOP platform in support of this? Is this why the Republican party is falling apart today, values, principals and platforms mean nothing?

If there was any doubt that replacing Luke Esser with Kirby Wilbur as chair of the Washington State Republican Party in any conservatives mind, it should be clear as a bell it was the right decision now that Esser has resurfaced as a lobbyist for “Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 775, the union local that represents some 40,000 home-care workers.”
Eric Smith at Washington State Wire quotes Esser saying, “There’s no better guy for the job than [me]. Republicans need to have better lines of communication with unions and organized labor. Casting against type can be a good thing.”
For quite some time, Republicans in Washington State apparently have been doing just that, “casting against type” by retaining Luke Esser as party chair, knowing all along he was not a conservative and at best, was a RINO (Republican in name only).
Little wonder the GOP in our state has done such a poor job winning elections when you have such weak kneed people leading the party and silently advocating the opposition as he states that he “has been a longtime supporter of the union’s efforts to organize homecare workers.”
