Cloud-cuckoo-land

What an appropriate word of the day, eh?  We’re living in it.

For breakfast reading this morning: a hodgepodge.

A little reality from Paul Ryan last night, H/T Hotair:

I concur with NiceDeb: Paul Ryan for President.

From Powerline’s Silver Linings:

 I’ve never been prouder to be a Republican. The party’s Congressional leaders have fought this battle to the end on behalf of the American people–with intelligence, toughness, persistence and good humor. The contrast between the parties has never been starker than in today’s debate. If any intelligent Democrats were watching–there must be some left–they had to be embarrassed for their party.

Paul Ryan has emerged as one of the conservative movement’s strongest spokesmen. In the years to come, I think we will hear the words “I’m a Paul Ryan Republican” with increasing frequency.

He’s right.  And Paul Ryan’s Roadmap will be the future of the GOP (if the GOP-powers-that-be unsticks itself from stupid).

Et tu Brute Bart Stupak?  We were warned not to trust him.  Ironic: he was to be honored this week.  From the Susan B. Anthony List Via Michelle Malkin:

“This Wednesday night is our third annual Campaign for Life Gala, where we were planning to honor Congressman Stupak for his efforts to keep abortion-funding out of health care reform-we will no longer be doing so. By accepting this deal from the most pro-abortion President in American history, Stupak has not only failed to stand strong for unborn children, but also for his constituents and pro-life voters across the country.

“Let me be clear: any representative, including Rep. Stupak, who votes for this healthcare bill can no longer call themselves ‘pro-life.’

On Stupak’s sham deal with the White House, he’s either stupid or dishonest to think the executive order will trump law

Republican opponent, Dr. Dan Benishek, has received 10,000 new “friends” on facebook in less than 12 hours. 

Advice from the WSJ: find a doctor now before the shortages kick in.  And “brace yourself” for 2014. 

A better idea: Remember in November and repeal this monstrosity before it all kicks in.

  1. Thanks for the Paul Ryan video.

    Some in Congress are listening, he says, and I think I will choose to believe him for now. (I permitted myself to believe Stupak, stupidly, and, once burned, etc.) Ryan has an organized mind, is rational and–I’m thinking–shrewd. He could make a formidable opponent to Obama and Obama has surely taken notice.

    The Dems haven’t pounded Ryan with dirt, yet. That should be coming soon.

    Thanks for the links, pj mom. They are much appreciated.

    • Most welcome. I agree on the hesitation to believe Ryan; we’ve been burned by our own before, too.
      I’m waiting on your essay-length post on the aftermath, QR.
