Virginia Foxx? “Brainwashed.” Richard Burr? Still “dumb.” Ellmers? Whatever John & Eric Want

Just like Bono & U2 — I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.  An elected conservative leader from North Carolina, that is.  I’ve been getting whiplash keeping track of Renee Ellmers’ positions on ObamaCare.  First she’s for defunding it with a CR, then she’s…

Down to crunch time for defunding ObamaCare, saving our country

US House GOP mulling scheme to vote FOR ObamaCare defunding w/o REALLY defunding it

      Look out, folks.  It looks like “our team” may be attempting to pull the wool over our eyes: Eric Cantor is always looking for new and imaginative ways to screw conservatives. He has Pete Sessions (R-TX), as Rules Chairman, helping him with…

Circling the wagons in CharMeck

    When it comes to the fight against ObamaCare, Robert Pittenger’s MOUTH is his own worst enemy.  Every time he speaks on the subject, in public, he ticks off the Tea Party even further and digs himself into a deeper hole. Tea Party activists…

She was FOR it, before she was AGAINST it. (Just like John F. Kerry — who served in Vietnam)

It’s sadly no surprise to hear of a Washington politician coming down on both sides of an issue. But it is surprising when you find out it we’re talking about Renee Ellmers, and the IT is the defunding of ObamaCare. The Second District Congresswoman —…

The GOP’s ObamaCare sellout rolls on.

        John Boehner says he has the plan to fix it all.  He’s NOT going to use his leverage to defund ObamaCare in the continuing resolution vote.  Instead, he says, House leaders are going to try to work a deal with Obama…

‘YOU don’t understand politics.’

Yep.  That’s the money quote straight  from Congressman Bob Pittenger’s big mouth during his do-over town hall in Matthews last night.  Not much better than the first go around.  Still smarting from the bad publicity he generated for himself, ol’ Bob decided to show Chuck…

LOUD & CLEAR: RNC says DEFUND O-CARE

    The Republican National Committee approved a resolution Friday at its meeting in Boston calling on Congress to do EVERYTHING possible to defund ObamaCare: Part of me wants to cheer this crowd for finally getting some cojones. The cynic in me says this resolution…

Sen. Burr STILL dodging, weaving, misleading on ObamaCare defunding

Senator Richard Burr doesn’t have time for the folks at Heritage Action, but he made time this week for Rotary. Activists affiliated with Heritage Action had scheduled a town hall meeting on ObamaCare in Wilmington for the end of August.  Both North Carolina senators were…

My how things change after you announce for US Senate and start trolling for PAC dollars

Let’s check the ObamaCare scorecard, friends.  Senator Burr says trying to defund ObamaCare is “the dumbest idea.”  Senator Hagan voted for and praised ObamaCare, and now takes both sides on the issue.  Renee Ellmers says she’s not interested in a defunding showdown.  Neither is Bob…
