Standing against big government and for the people!

Everything I Learned About Politics I Learned Waiting For the School Bus.

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.

This coming election will put the MSM into attack mode with steroids and be aware of the screaming and promises that will appear. Relax and remember what has been going on for the past two years with the lies and actual crimes committed that went unpunished and calmly express this via internet without name calling. The most effective way to drive the left crazy is to do this in a mature manner while the public notices the difference. It will mirror the likes of a bratty kid screaming at a checkout line.

Absolutely brilliant article and so true.  When the Republicans learn that they can stand up to the Marxist Democrats, they will win.  "We the People" are sick to death of the Repub's caving to the Dems on finances.  It is ridiculous.

Only one way to handle them. Tar and feathers , then throw them in the Potomac River!

Maybe we should change the GOP to the GOR....grand old RINOS.

Mr. Marcus, you aren't the first person I've heard say you're tired of being  defensive and it's time to be on the offensive for a change. This is exactly what the true Republicans need to do. Loved the analogy with Butterball and Zaggy, by the way.

AUBIE:  I agree with you on both points.  The lack of interaction is disheartening, kinda makes you feel invisible.  And I'm 100% for a one-term limit.  I'd love to know what percentage on here agree, as I've seen it mentioned by many.


DENIS:  That was a wonderful story!  The makings of a movie!

Marcus is correct. Since Republicans will get trashed in the press, they need to stand firm.
Comment by Jack Taylor on July 29, 2011 at 3:54pm
Mr. Marcus is 100% on the money.  We conservatives are going to be blamed no matter what.  Boehner and the House Republicans should not give the Clown what he wants.  You give an inch and they take a mile.  I guess the Republicans have forgotten what the Dumbocrats did during the "lame duck" session.  Everything was done behind closed doors, Republicans were completely ignored and they did what they wanted.  It is time for some payback and helping the country at the same time.  Some backbones are needed in Congress.

Gee I hate to have to say this:  Baloney!


I'm tired of hearing establishment Republicans portrayed as "weak", "spineless", and "fearful'; they are none of those things.  They are instead accomplices of the Democrats in the intentional destruction of personal liberty and prosperity.


Isn't it obvious that no matter how bad they govern, somehow we're never able to throw the bums out?  That's because the GOP has an endless supply of complicit bums ready to lie during the campaign then compromise with Democrats later.  Happens every time.
