The RNC is going to take advantage of the short window where media is actually questioning 'Dear Leader.'
Starting today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) is launching robocalls and targeted Facebook posts urging Americans to call their representatives and ask why they supported President Obama's lie that people could keep their healthcare plans under ObamaCare.
The RNC is targeting eleven Democrats who support ObamaCare, including nine U.S. Senators who voted in 2010 to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. The effort includes Senators Mark Warner (VA), Mark Begich (AK), Dick Durbin (IL), Kay Hagan (NC), Mary Landrieu (LA), Jeff Merkley (OR), Mark Pryor (AR), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), and Mark Udall (CO), as well as Representatives Bruce Braley (IA) and Gary Peters (MI).
Peters' targeted call script?:
"I'm calling from the RNC. President Obama and the Democrats said you could keep your healthcare plan under ObamaCare. Now we know REPRESENTATIVE PETERS actually made that same promise. Call REPRESENTATIVE PETERS at (313) 964-9960 and ask why he lied. This call was paid for by the RNC (866) 279-8125.Its a good point.
Call those who voted for it in the first place and ask why THEY lied as well as the boss liar. Make them explain how they could not have known, unless of course they were not reading the bill, in which case they should resign right away as inept negligent, and incapable of service as a US representative or senator..
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says
"We now know the President's repeated promise that Americans could keep their insurance plans if they liked them was a blatant lie. In 2010 President Obama and the Democrats were warned about this very issue and deliberately chose to make it more difficult for Americans to keep their insurance. Americans should call their representatives and ask why they supported the ObamaCare lie."Indeed.
Though not a fan of Robocalls personally, I agree that the RNC needs to capitalize on the southward jet-stream momentum of the liar in chief.
At least until the Gods of the Copybook Headings blow the winds of change back in his direction.

Its been inspiring to watch Senator Ted Cruz and REAL patriots talk on the Senate floor all night long.
Pushing into the 20th hour and still going strong, there appears to be clear differences where our state GOP is as compared to the party leadership nationally. About 19 hours ago Reince Priebus Chair of the national GOP tweets:
From our own party leadership? Crickets.
Below the fold are screen shots of the only Michigan political social media efforts on twitter.

I could not possibly agree more with Senator Cruz. And, that's the problem. The Sea of Red sent in 2010, has lost my trust. Remember 4/10/2011: "By the way Neil, they're [House Republicans] 100% of the spending bills and taxing authority under the Constitution. They can stop whatever they want to stop."
Bonus: it's good to read that Priebus is backpedaling on his spineless reach across the aisle herd (ya, it's about as politico speak squishy as it gets without full omission of being complicit). Nonetheless, Ted Cruz forced Reince to put those cards on the table - Cruz, like Reagan ultimately did, Eleventh Commandment be damned!

The NPV troll brought me to a site that explained more succinctly the dangers of the NVP. The canard of NVP being non partisan is absurd at its base.
The Progressive left is determined to transform our republic into a unitary state with one political party--theirs. What would that look like? Perhaps something like the social democracies of Western Europe or maybe democratic republics of the former Eastern Europe Soviet bloc. With policy being guided by radical Marxists in the current White House, the goal could be a full-blown communist utopia. Maybe they don't even know where they're headed.
Those republicans who have fallen for the fairness trap need to brush up on checks and balances.

Oh yeah.. Our troll Mr "Kohler" should recognize his modus operandi :
"I received five very long rebuttals from the same untraceable ... They arrived 1 minute apart. Overwhelm the opposition: typical leftist tactic."
Dude. Way too easy to spot. I had you in 10 minutes. (actually 3, but I type slow)

Be sure to read this:
Kudos to NRC chair Reince Priebus for nipping this in the bud.
With so many things going on, its good to have someone watching our backs on things like this.

I don't pretend to know and understand the ins and outs of internal party races like the RNC chair race, but I do know this, it makes sense for former MIGOP chairman Saul Anuzis to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Saul has been the first to throw in for the race, and Steele is expected to announce his intentions this evening. Others who have formally announced according to Anuzis' blog are "former Bush Administration Official Maria Cino, RNC Legal Counsel & WI Chair Reince Priebus,"and," Ambassador Ann Wagner." Still, it is not clear if former Republican National Committee political director Gentry Collins is in yet, Collins left the RNC in a huff decrying Steele's ineptness at fundraising and his mismanagement of funds, nor is it clear if former RNC chair Mike Duncan is in. Regardless, the field is crowded, and may get more so.
Putting aside all the politicking, my purpose for encouraging endorsements for Saul Anuzis is from a purely grassroots level.
