Some of you side with the establishment Republicans, “Let's compromise with the Democrats regarding raising the debt ceiling. Then, the media can not blame us for causing a government shutdown”.


I side with the Tea Party, “Why surrender to Obama, Reed and company? The media is going to portray us as mean-spirited heartless Republicans no matter what we do. So, let's stand on principle and do what is best for America”.


I think back to seventh grade, waiting for our school bus; Butterball and Zaggy. Butterball was a big kid and very gentle. Zaggy was smaller, but very mean and aggressive; a bully. Zaggy would slap Butterball in the face and punch him almost every morning. Zaggy's mood would determine how severe a beating Butterball would endure.


Butterball would only attempt to block punches and beg to be left alone. I was a little kid. And yet, I thought, “Butterball, you are getting beat up ANYWAY, so why not hit Zaggy back”.


I am witnessing the same scenario; the left vs the Republicans. The left (democrats and their media) is going to trash the Republicans whether they compromise or not. I say to the Republicans, “You're getting beat up ANYWAY, so why not stand up for fiscal responsibility and Conservatism?”


Forgive me for using this cliché, but it is appropriate. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. The democrats and their media loath Republicans and Conservatism.


Speaker Boehner, why keep crafting budget plans hoping Republicans will be given a fair shake in the media and awarded kudos for compromise? YOU WILL NOT! Whatever Republicans do will be spun negatively. Pure and simple. End of subject.


Rather than continually staying on defense, the Republicans should stay on offense. Republicans should stand toe to toe with the democrats and their media, hitting them back! What on earth do they have to lose?


I am also weary of hearing Obama, the democrats and their media are unbeatable in the battle for public opinion. If the Democrat's and media's influence over what the public believes is so powerful, why was Obama and company so severely beaten last November?


I do not know what snapped in Butterball's brain, but one morning when Zaggy slapped him, Butterball unloaded on him. Zaggy cried. All of us kids laughed and cheered for Butterball.


Just as Butterball discovered he was more powerful than Zaggy, I submit the Republicans with the backing of We The People (Tea Party) are more powerful than the left. Republicans, for crying out loud, please stop your ridiculous wimpified pandering to these scoundrels on the left. You're not alone. The Tea Party has your back.


It truly sticks in my craw seeing characterless self serving scoundrels dictating the rules of engagement and getting their way. It goes against everything I believe. Right is more powerful than wrong and is suppose to win!


Butterball later made the U.S. Olympic wrestling team.
