Default The Republican Party has lost control.

The Tea Party now controls the republican caucus. The speaker of the house has no influence over this radical sect of the republican party. Going over the fiscal cliff is now a certainty because a republican or democrat proposal will never pass the congress, this was made quit evident by yesterdays refusal (no vote) on John Boehner's plan B.

what would you call a "no vote" on raising taxes on millionaires? Obama said he would veto it, and Reid said no vote.

we might have gotten a House vote if plan B cut more spending than it does. Obama could work with the House on that, and possibly get a revised plan B to pass. But he wont. Remember, the rhetoric was all about making millionaires and billionaires pay their "fair share"...what happened to that?

We are already broke, both parties share equally in the blame.

How does it go....

"You got to stand for something,
or you'll fall for anything.....
You got to be your own man,
not a puppet on a string...."

I hate what Obama and Reid are doing but I admire them, a lot more than wussy Boehner, for taking a stand in what they believe in and not budging. That being said, allow me to be the first to push those two over the cliff. Boehner can join if he wishes; I can handle three.

Default Re: The Republican Party has lost control.

For the first 35 years of my life the Republican party was perceived to be the voice of reason. Dems were idealist dreamers. The Tea Party has destroyed much of America's faith in the Grand Old Party. The deep southern righties can say it ain't so, but those of us in densely populated well educated areas now view the Partiers as a bunch of buffoons and the stink hovers over the GOP like a halo.

Flame away, but the GOP has lost America's trust. America would rather ride into oblivion with the Dems than partner up with angry, bigoted, obstructionist old white guys. Scoreboard.

The Tea Party is the worst thing that has happened to the GOP since Nixon.

It's the angry, bigoted, obstructionist old white guys that the Tea Party is clashing with. Personally, I like what they're doing, but I wish they'd drop the name, and as long as there's a split within the Republican ranks the party is going nowhere. When the dust settles, they have to present a unified front.

Obama was ripe for the taking on November 6. Charlie Brown could have won that election. The Republicans flat gave it away and they know it.

It's the over-educated under experienced pseudo-intellectual winos that have steered us to this position in our history.

I'll stand with the dumb ass rednecks that pay their bills....thanks.

Boner....go ALL the way over. No Continuing Resolutions. Force them to use individual spending Bills (by department) and cut government using the checkbook. Kill the debt ceiling increases, pass authorization ONLY for payments on the national debt.

If they want to play...play rough.

Yes they did give it away. The Republicans ran a man of exemplary character against a man that has none.

How DARE they.......

When are you going to tell us why you hate America?

Be straight...for once.
