Yes, Krauthammer was before and is now. Goes where the money is.
I won an editorial award from the Richmond Times (a conservative paper)for deconstructing one of Krautheimers editorials (literally tearing it up with facts.)
O rly. My - you certainly have quite an opinion of yourself. I'm sure we're all impressed - not.

Let us know when YOUR Pulitzer arrives, mmm-k?

You couldn't hold Krauthammer's pen.

You sound like like the drunk in the bar who won't shut up, vaporing on endlessly about how you went 3 rounds with the Champ once and knocked him down.

You're a pathetic joke.

I don't give a rat's azz about the TEA Party or your ideologically twisted opinion of it - try it on some who does. Your ignorance of the TEA Party is overpowering and, it is clear, intentional.
I'm only mildly interested in exploring the abject stupidity of your "point" regarding 'amending the Constitution to incorporate FBI, CDC, FDA, etc. specifically.'
Why do you see that as an issue worthy of discussion, OKB? If these federal agencies and functions have existed for scores of years under the Constitution as written, why would it require amending? Are you just stirring the shyte - again?
What the TEA Party states and what they publically try to accomplish are two separate things.

Small government (for) and socialism (against) are both incorporated in the largest, fastest growing, wealth transfer programs and where does the TEA Party stand on them?

Simply put, the TEA Party only wants "smaller" government where they want it and want "bigger" government where they want it.

You think government should be held to 18% of GDP. Do you support taxes being held to 18% of GDP? No.

You want cuts before taxes. We had $2 Tril of cuts to increase the debt ceiling, did you stand against the Republican Party as they adopted $2 Tril in tax cuts? Did you support increased taxes as part of or post the $2 Tril in cuts?

Why is ammending the Constitution worthy? Because it is the only way you can limit government. But like I said, the TEA Party is not interested in that.

When a known person can have their argument in an opinion piece (from a learned individual or professional) torn apart with facts from a lay person it says something about the "expert."

Nice of you to admit your low opinion of yourself in being unable to do the same to opinion pieces by Krugman. I thought you would have been able to point out the fallacies in his arguments, guess I was wrong.

What has the GOP accomplished since 2000 which is
recognized as a success?

Besides tax cuts for the rich.

These guys can't run on successes so they demean those who are trying to repair their damage.

To be frank, if all of you partisan knuckleheads cared about America half as much as you care about your corrupt political party... our republic would stand a chance...

But almost all Americans have pledged their allegiance to a party instead of this country.

Sadly, it will be the main factor in the demise of our sovereignty as a nation.

I implore ALL of you to think about what you are accomplishing with your partisan bullsh!t. I implore you to think about how America and FREEDOM are way cooler than your corrupt political party.

False premise. You're a legend in your own mind.

We're supposed to believe a rat-bag internet hero like you who we're all seen to be incapable of stringing together a coherent fact-based post "tore apart" a piece by a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who is universally regarded as one of the most influential commentators of the day?

Seriously?

Seek help. The delusions just get worse.

Who would support a party that thinks the job of the Senate and House is to ensue the President is a one term President when he is not of their party?

The job of the Senate and House is to fund the government, provide oversight thereof and to provide new legistlation as needed. This is true regardless of who is President.

The role of the minority party in either is to help ensure that the other party does not go to far left or right and to try and incorporate their values into legistlation as they are able to do so.

Right on, they will be telling us what time to eat, go to bed, go to poop, what time to get up, if we can nap during the day, etc. We need a change.

Obama’s accomplishments … debt, 15.5 trillion, deficits, trillion plus, youth employment 23 year low, 1out 2 college grads find employment, 1-15 Americans fall in to extreme poverty; this is what Liberals/Democrats embrace as success!!

More of the same stupid hacking at Obama by far-right fools who can't name a single accomplishment of the Republicans. Happens every time.

In case you haven't noticed you've repeated your attacks on Obama ad-nauseum. Here's your chance to proclaim Republican successes and you can't.

Same old drivel. Hilarious.

Now make some more ignorant attacks on Obama.

Stimulus stopped the slide though was not large enough to give growth a pop.

Healthcare Bill started off covering kids to age 26 on parents policy and forced insurance to take pre-existing conditions.

Wound Down Iraq.

Surge in Afghanistan.

Tax cuts for the lower and middle classes.

So far the Republican have maintained a tax cut for the rich AND offered to cut taxes by $2 Tril more instead of decreasing the deficit.

If I am not mistaken, while the President requests an increase in the debt ceiling, the House has to approve the request. Further, the House has to approve the budgets that force an increase in the debt ceiling.

That $15.5 Tril debt is a bipartisan effort since 2011, Democrat for 2009 - 2010, and Republican before that.

Not at all, it is the best that can be accomplished when Republicans are involved. Kind of like the debt.
