Reform Conservatism's Federalism Blind Spot

Dave M Wrote: 1 hour ago (12:15 PM)
Except -for one problem. This is nothing more than variations on a theme- I have heard this very same argument and proposals every year for the past 30
"Russia violated 1987 nuclear missile treaty" There's news. Shocking that Russia would do such a thing. And such a forward looking person like Putin too. But I'm sure our brilliant Supreme Leader and his Secretary of State have everything under control. Just like they do in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Pakistan, the Southern border,etc.

Impeachment!

You need to keep your eye on the target. Things like impeachment are distractions- in this case loose talk by people who should know better has allowed the Democrats t a strategy that should not have been available to them at all. The talk of impeachment has of course come about by the clack of effective opposition to Obama by very weak leadership. With strong leadership Obama would never have been allowed to do a tenth of what he bass. Given that the Republican Leadership except for Cantor survived their is no possibility whatsoever of prevailing over the likes of Reid or Obama without lat least two thirds of both Houses being Republican. And given the number of Peter Kings and John McCains in Republican ranks l-I'm not sure that would be enough.

Not really Abigail. The biggest problem from the Republican Party has been the lack of pushback. The idea John Boehner or Mitch McConnell will not suddenly reverse their course of the last four years, develop spines and testicles, and suddenly possess sufficient courage to impeach anyone is just ludicrous. There is a fundamental rule in this type of strategy- If you intend to sack the leader- DON'T FAIL. Disaster inevitably follows such failures.
What that really means is that there is no real buyers remorse- just switched their loyalties from one liberal to another. Don't put any stock at all in these people coming to their senses.
Proved en's point. In other words you were ok with he establishment purists not voting for Cuccinelli. Typical establishment type. I am required to vote for the candidate you want but you do not feel obligated to return the favor.
Noe lets not do something dumb and hand the libs an unearned victory. Primarily over impeachment. Thats a distraction. What's needed is pushback on policy . And not to fall into the "We Have To Do Something" legislative trap.

Israeli Criticism of Secretary of State Kerry

Dave M Wrote: 22 hours ago (2:56 PM)
Easy way for Kerry to avoid this kind of criticism. Put his personal preferences aside and actually use his brains for something other than a cushion to sit on.
"en band"-"en banc" Auto-correct goes awry
So what happens if the "en band" court recognizes the obvious and refuses the case on the basis that a decision based on the plain meaning of the law is the proper route to take for any decision? Nah! Not going to happen.
