Do you feel John Boehner has been a positive or a negative for the Republican Party? Republican voters nationwide overwhelmingly want their House representative to elect somebody other than Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker of the House, a new poll from Pat Caddell’s organization Caddell Associates shows.
A whopping 60 percent of voters who voted for Republicans in the last election either definitely or probably want their member of Congress to elect someone other than Boehner on Jan. 6, when Congress convenes, according to the poll. The voters were asked: “As you may know the new Congress will select its leaders in January. If it were up to you, would you elect John Boehner to continue as Speaker of the House or would you elect someone new?”Read More
Ben Carson: It’s a ‘bunch of crap’ that Obamacare can’t be reworked By Cheryl K. Chumley

Noted conservative commentator and talked-about Republican presidential contender Ben Carson cut to the chase about the fate of Obamacare, saying there is absolutely no reason politicians can’t unravel, reinvent or outright repeal the health care plan — and those who say otherwise are selling a lie.
“Health care is a gigantic issue, and there’s no question that the system was broken and that we needed to do something about it,” Mr. Carson said on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV. “What we did not need to do is create another massive government program, and we need to be looking at different ways of taking care of it, putting responsibility back into the hands of patients and to their health care providers.Read More

How concerned is the public about their own government and politics in general? The news itself is alarming: “Poor government leadership” on the part of the White House, Congress and combative politicians was deemed the “top problem in 2014” – more than the economy, terrorism, racism, the federal debt, unemployment, healthcare, immigration and a host of other troubling issues.
No, really. This is research from a Gallup poll released Friday and it is also the first time government leadership has been No. 1 on the list since the pollster began tabulating such sentiments 14 years ago. Interesting too that concerns over the nation’s “moral decline” is ranked in the top-10 as well. See all the numbers in the Poll du Jour at column’s end.Read More
The day after Republicans won the largest majority in the House of Representatives in almost 100 years and won a significant majority in the Senate, our liberal activist President claimed to hear the voices of all the people who didn’t vote. It was another example of stunning obstinacy from this President.
It seemed Democrats were melting down, Republicans were unified, and all we had to do was buy enough time to get our Republican reinforcements to Washington in January.Read More

On December 29–while NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio was working to set up a meeting with police union leaders to ubiquitously make amends–his aides were placing phone calls to New York City Council members asking them “to blast Patrolman’s Benevolent Association head Pat Lynch and officer officers” over the open disdain demonstrated toward de Blasio after the executions of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.
The aides were particularly outraged over the number of NYPD officers who turned their backs to de Blasio at police funeral services.Read More
