Kevin McCarthy Drops Out of Speaker of the House Race

Thursday on Capitol Hill, the House Republican caucus met to vote on a replacement for John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Kevin McCarthy, currently the House Majority Leader, was in the running for the job and considered a shoe-in. However, he only had support of about 175 members of the GOP caucus. One group of about 40 members, known as the Freedom Caucus, were supporting Daniel Webster of Florida. Jason Chaffetz of Utah had also thrown his hat in the ring. With it apparent that McCarthy would not secure the 218 votes needed, he announced that he was withdrawing from the process. The vote was postponed and many are wondering what will happen next? Some also wonder why did Kevin McCarthy drop out of the race to be the next Speaker of the House of Representatives?

IRS Had Contract With Email Backup Company

Did the Internal Revenue Service really lose two years worth of emails from Lois Lerner and six other IRS officials allegedly involved in the IRS – Tea Party scandal? Our tax collecting agency claims that computer crashes and discarded hard drives have resulted in the loss of many emails which Congress would love to get their hands on. Now we learn that the IRS had a contract with email backup company, Sonasoft, since 2005. But, for some strange and unknown reason, the contract was suspended in 2011 as the House Ways and Means Committee began investigating charges that the IRS had targeted Tea Party and conservative groups. While they still have internal IRS emails, those messages exchanged with the White House, Treasury Department and other outside sources are gone. IRS chief John Koskinen will be taking the hot seat again tonight during another Congressional hearing after last week′s appearance where Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) all but called Koskinen a liar.

Ted Cruz, Chris Christie Open CPAC 2014

CPAC 2014 opened yesterday with speakers like Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and even Donald Trump. The Conservative Political Action Conference is being held this weekend at National Harbor, Maryland and ends on Saturday with its famous straw poll for presidential contenders for 2016. Ted Cruz was the first major speaker who fired up the audience with plenty of red meat and raw principles. Chris Christie spoke later and did receive a standing ovation at the end of his speech, but got nowhere the same enthusiastic response as Cruz did. Bobby Jindal had, perhaps, the best line of the day, apologizing to Jimmy Carter as now Barack Obama is the new, worst president in United States history. The line was so good, even Donald Trump repeated it.

Bipartisan Two-Year Budget Deal, Compromise or Compost?

A bipartisan, two-year budget deal was made public yesterday from our hard working bozos in Congress. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) have been leading the negotiations and have come up with a compromise bill to fund the federal government. The bill does sidetrack some of the sequestration cuts, especially for the military, but still manages to reduce spending by some $85 Billion dollars over the two years. Should the legislation pass both wings of Congress, it will mean that we will be spared some of the politics until well after the 2014 mid-term elections. Some in the Tea Party caucus are already denouncing the bill, but the real question will be if Harry Reid and Barack Obama will support it? If the bill passes and becomes law, then Reid and Obama will have little to trash Republicans about for the next year while the GOP beats them over the head with the Obamacare failures.

Democrat Budget Plan – Raise Taxes More

Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) floated a memo to her fellow Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee outlying the need for ′revenues to be included′ in their federal budget outline. This comes as House Republicans passed a measure extending the debt ceiling for four months under the condition that the Senate Democrats must pass a budget, something they have not done in about 1367 days. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), head of the House Budget Committee, will be sending a budget proposal shortly that will balance the budget within 10 years. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has been blocking any budgets from being passed in the Senate, but may be ready to let one go through now. Especially since Murray, Barack Obama, and he are all committed to raising more tax revenues. Also, as part of the new debt ceiling agreement, paychecks for members of Congress will be held in escrow until a budget is passed.

Did the Biden-Ryan Debate Slow the Obama Collapse?

Both political parties were pleased with their nominees in the Vice Presidential debate Thursday night. Each of them had specific chores to accomplish. Paul Ryan had to convince voters, many of whom didn’t know much about him, of two things. First, he would be able to take over the presidency if necessary. Second, that he and his budget plan weren’t the boogiemen that the Democrats had portrayed in advertising.

Crazy Joe Biden shows up at VP Debate (Full Video)

In the one and only Vice Presidential Debate for 2012, a cranky and rude Joe Biden squared off with the Prince of Data, Paul Ryan. Smiling, laughing, smirking, and just plain disrespectful, Biden made a fool out of himself, which is something he does regularly. If American voters were looking at which of the two would make a better president if needed to, then the obvious answer is Paul Ryan won the debate. Ryan held his ground, delivered his message, and stood up to the multiple interruptions by Crazy Joe. Shifting rapidly between grins and anger, Biden was out of control and short on truth. When confronted about the attack in Benghazi, Libya, Biden acted like the mean, old man in the neighborhood yelling at children to get off his lawn!

My Fair Biden preps for VP Debate

Calling Professor Henry Higgins! Joe Biden is being sequestered at an undisclosed location preparing for the Vice Presidential debate against Paul Ryan this Thursday night. After the dismal performance by Barack Obama against Mitt Romney last week, Democrats are hoping that Biden can get through the debate without any gaffes. But like Eliza Doolittle, Joe Biden is a wild card. Will he embarrass himself and torpedo Obama′s reelection hopes?
