Boehner to Tea Baggers: Shut yourself down!

•October 15, 2013 • Comments Off on Boehner to Tea Baggers: Shut yourself down!


In an article from Bloomberg, Margaret Carlson explains how secretly Boehner is thankful that President Obama had the nuts to take on the Tea Bagger Terrorists when he didn’t have the courage to do it himself;

“Thank you, Mr. President. Signed, John Boehner.”
Deep beneath the year-round tan, the Camel Ultra Lights and the merlot, there beats a grateful heart. Somebody had to take on the Tea Party that has turned Boehner’s tenure as House speaker into a living hell.
Too bad for Republicans, that someone was a Democrat rather than one of their own, which would have signaled that the party is fit to govern. By calling the bluff of a tiny band of burn-the-place-down Tea Party activists leading their colleagues over domestic (the government shutdown) and global (the debt ceiling) cliffs, Barack Obama exposed the fact that they didn’t come to Washington to fix anything, only to tear everything but air-traffic control down.
The meltdown on Capitol Hill doesn’t mean the end of the Tea Party. In fact, most of those lawmakers accurately point out that they are doing what the constituents in their painfully drawn, one-sided, overwhelmingly white, aging, anti-gay, anti-immigrant, science-denying districts want. Still, there are emerging signs — from declining poll numbers to the breach with the Republican Party’s traditional business allies — that the act is getting old. Mess with Democratic totems such as Social Security and nutritional programs for pregnant mothers, send Sarah Palin to Washington periodically to pour salt on open wounds, but don’t mess with Treasury bills and the markets.
Brain Freeze
There was no convincing extremists ahead of time. Like excited children at the fair, the Tea Party had to eat too much ice cream and see the whole party get sick, and even then, they couldn’t stop themselves. But some of them had to be queasy when they saw an NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll last week: Only 24 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the Republican Party, the lowest ever. By eight points, the public said it preferred a Congress controlled by the Democrats over one in Republican hands. Positive feelings toward the Tea Party fell to an all-time low.
That would turn the stomach of the heartiest anarchist. Rather than be an enduring movement of concerned grass-roots activists, the Tea Party has become a well-financed faction of the Republican Party bankrolled by business interests such as the Koch brothers to push a narrow agenda of regressive taxes, opposition to unions and the rollback of regulations.
They went too far. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce sent a letter signed by about 250 business groups asking members of Congress to stop their shenanigans. Wall Street titans such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) Chairman Jamie Dimon and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein, alarmed that a small band of extremists is blithely considering bringing down the global economy, are pleading with the Republican leadership to rein in the renegades.
Voters may do that for them. Evidence of a declining Tea Party is also apparent in a few of the movement’s strongholds. Take the prince of the Tea Party, Michigan Representative Justin Amash. He tried to depose Boehner as speaker and considered a measure to defund Planned Parenthood not draconian enough. Rather than having to face a challenge from the far right, here comes one from a mainline conservative and pro-business investment adviser, Brian Ellis, who says the way Amash governs is “disruptive and chaotic” — two words businessmen dislike more than taxes or regulation.
And look what has happened to Senator Mike Lee of Utah, a Tea Party darling since his surprising defeat in 2010 of Robert Bennett, a beloved conservative senator. He’s become sidekick to Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, chiming in during the recent filibuster about a childhood accident and his dream of being a pirate.
‘Wacko Birds’
Lee is one of the new lawmakers who have been dubbed “wacko birds” by Senator John McCain of Arizona. Karl Rove said Lee’s scorched-earth strategy was “the one tactic that might be able to guarantee that the Democrats pick up seats in the Congress in 2014.” Even Lee’s friend and Capitol Hill roommate, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, refused to back his plan to defund the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Lee’s favorable rating has dropped 10 percentage points since a June Brigham Young University poll, which doesn’t skew liberal. More than half of Utah voters see him unfavorably; 57 percent said he should be more willing to compromise. In a separate survey, a majority of Utah voters now disapprove of the Tea Party’s influence.
Like Amash, Lee will be challenged from his left. Josh Romney and Dan Liljenquist are waiting in the wings. If Lee survives that primary contest, there’s an excellent chance that Democratic Representative Jim Matheson — who’s been gerrymandered into unwinnable districts twice but still wins — could win a statewide race in the reddest state in the country.
Utah Republicans have been heading toward buyer’s remorse for some time. At last year’s convention in Salt Lake City, a robust 125,000 Republicans turned out. This was a reaction to the 2010 convention, when 50,000 Tea Party activists took over and eliminated Bennett in favor of Lee. By 2012, the establishment was back in charge, and Bennett got a long and loud standing ovation. At that same convention, Senator Orrin Hatch easily won the nomination and re-election.
Here’s another suggestion for thank-you notes: “Dear Senator Bennett, thank you for taking one for the establishment. Signed, Senator Hatch.”
And Senator Lee, watch out. Jim Matheson may have a note for you in 2016.

The GOP loses control of their idiots once again!

•October 11, 2013 • Comments Off on The GOP loses control of their idiots once again!

gop death
From Daily Koz;

Conservative writer Byron York, reporting from the front lines of his party’s civil war:
Just look at what a member of the Republican majority told me after House Republicans had taken another step toward confrontation. “Analysts say the Congressional GOP doesn’t understand strategy,” the Republican said. “I’m like, ‘Congressional GOP’ my ass! It’s 30 idiots who can’t get us to 217.”
gop war
Sorry dude, it is the “Congressional GOP”. House Speaker John Boehner could ignore those 30 idiots. Just look at how the House Dem leadership has long ignored the much larger (and decidedly non-idiot) Progressive Caucus. Instead, he’s empowered his pet idiots even as an outsider—backbencher Sen. Ted Cruz—pulls the strings.
But yeah, they’re idiots. We can all agree on that—a rare moment of national unity and bipartisan agreement.
gop poll

4:25 PM PT: A supposed “moderate uprising” garnered two Republican votes from the center (four more came from the crazy caucus including Reps. Louie Gohmert, MIchelle Bachmann and Steve King).

This was the perfect out for Boehner — have the “moderates” derail the crazy caucus’ approach and surrender to a clean CR. That’s not even a surrender! It locks in sequester-level spending levels that Dems don’t want. But he didn’t take this out. Instead, his whip operation was clearly in action, with a block of about two dozen wavering votes hanging for a while, then coming in support of the GOP’s bill en masse.

So if the leadership’s whip operation is whipping the entire caucus behind the approach favored by “those 30 idiots”, then whose fault is that?

Why are Tea Baggers listening to a Canadian?

•October 10, 2013 • Comments Off on Why are Tea Baggers listening to a Canadian?

Is it me or is it ironic that the man the Tea Party chose to lead it off the cliff is a Canadian with a Hispanic last name?…LOL! Ted Cruz played and continues to play you all for fools, even a majority of your own party thinks he’s crazy! I hope to God that he runs for President, check this out from Addicting Info;

ted cruz
In an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Representative Peter King (R-NY) admitted that he holds the GOP responsible for the shutdown. He also blasted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for insisting that he could keep the government up and running and still defund the Affordable Care Act (ACA), saying that was “a strategy doomed to failure. He also said, “you don’t take the dramatic step of shutting down the government unless you have a real strategy.”

Voice of reason?
In recent days, Rep. King has been a bit of a voice of reason in the debate over the shutdown. This is also not the first time that he’s blamed Sen. Cruz for the gridlock over the ACA and the shutdown. A week ago, he said that Sen. Cruz should be blamed if a shutdown occurs, along with anybody who follows him. He also said, in no uncertain terms, that he would not vote for a resolution that contained provisions for defunding or delaying the ACA.

The general public also seems to hold the GOP responsible for the shutdown, despite various tactics intended to shift blame to the Democrats and to President Obama. According to a CBS poll, 44% of people blame Republicans, while 35% blame Democrats. 72 percent of the general population disapproves of the shutdown. Yet, it has significant support from those who identify with the Tea Party.

A CNN poll released in the hours before the shutdown occurred indicated that most people thought Republicans were acting like spoiled children. Respondents were divided over whether the president is acting like a spoiled child or not.

It’s also been shown in recent days that the Tea Party wing of the GOP planned this for a very long time, and also that this might have been avoided if they hadn’t obstructed the normal legislative process by refusing to go to conference on the original budget resolutions. Given these revelations, it’s hard to argue with Rep. King, and others, who hold the GOP responsible for the shutdown.

King holds both Cruz and the GOP responsible for the shutdown
Rep. King is pretty much sick of Ted Cruz calling the shots for both houses, saying,

“I went along with the votes up until now because I know that John Boehner does not want to shut the government down, and I was assured this was a process to keep the government open. Now we’re down to the last 24 or 48 hours, and it seems we’re closer than ever to the government shutting down. I think Harry Reid should accept the proposal that was made. If he doesn’t I don’t want the government to shut down and I don’t see how I can vote again to any more amending to ObamaCare.”

“We have too many people in our party, it’s a minority, who are following Ted Cruz, and they are tying up the entire Republican party. The overwhelming majority of House members would vote to keep the government open. I’m tired of having Ted Cruz call the shots for the House Republicans.” [SOURCE]

He believes that they could have won a moderate battle, one that may have even been an actual example of compromise. Instead, the GOP is responsible for the shutdown, and the public knows it. King has joined a growing number of Congressional Republicans who have had it with the Tea Party wing.


•October 8, 2013 • Comments Off on WE ARE MUTHA FUC*ING BACK!


After a long hiatus and just plain burnout from the whole political process we have returned well rested and ready to take on those loons called the Tea Party or as we like to call them the Tea Baggers. This latest government shutdown has us all riled up and really got us going with that nutjob from the Arizona Legislature refusing to take responsibility for her parties part in what’s going on, calling Obama “De Fuhrer” because of national park closures. It has always amazed me how people like this get elected to public office, it’s really a damn shame!

Stupid PumaPac Election Day Rolling Thread

•November 6, 2012 • 1 Comment

FAIL? Always!

So it’s time to relive the Puma election stupidness of 2008 just one more time. I wouldn’t be doing my due diligence if I didn’t bring you some of the dumbest comments from today’s open thread, you will get to see hope for a Romney win from these so called albeit bitter Democratic old ladies as they go from Enthusiasm for Romney and that always present hatred for the President to their heads exploding with anger and sadness as their Great White Hope Romney loses tonight in a historical election. Hatred for a black man brings these women to the point of voting all their hard earned rights away by trying to put a Republican in office, all because they couldn’t get over the fact that their primary candidate lost in 2008…How pathetic!  Without further delay, here are some comments…and remember to check back periodically as this post will be updated with comment quotes form their echo chamber….. Go Obama/Biden 2012!

From the queen of stupidity, Dumbaugh Murphy;

I think there is no way in hell that obama will win all four of Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. My hunch, for what it’s worth, is Romney will take Wisconsin and Michigan. We will know the outcome soon enough. Sit tight!

murphy 11.06.12 at 12:01 pm
Not MIA for me today. If the polls look good for romney I’m even going into town for the victory rally!

HP Boston 11.06.12 at 1:21 pm
Voted for 3 women, the only three!
At the polls at 9:30 now home packing for Florida.
Going to meet up with my sister, spend thee days in Fort
Lauderdale then sail on Saturday.
I may be drinking mucho on the plane tomorrow if Ofartface wins. I am sure Romeny has it in the bag where I will be if he is not.

gordana 11.06.12 at 4:52 pm
I voted at 1PM…they were waiting for me. I needed to show my ID and saw no one in the parking lot canvassing….pretty much normal for a small CT town. Too bad CT will be going to the fraud…I did my best to make sure my childen were voting. My son’s vote erased my daughter’s. Shame is that she’s a widow with four small children. Wait until January when she gets only $500 allowance instead of $1000 per child. She doesn’t qualify for food stamps because they get SSI. She’s like so many other women in their 40′s who were raised in a ‘liberal’ home.

pumacraig 11.06.12 at 10:36 pm

How are they calling all these wins for jerk face? The maps show so many votes uncounted! I hope Romney waites for every vote to be counted before he makes that call to jerk face. I don’t beleave the media let the dag blasted votes get counted!!!!

freddiebrown 11.06.12 at 11:21 pm

Its over.

Headclunker 11.06.12 at 11:33 pm

WTF? They are calling it for BO before the votes are all in with Ohio and Florida too close to call? And Ofuctard did not even get the popular vote. Obama has truly become Bush.

Headclunker 11.06.12 at 11:41 pm

Something smells like BO. Ohio is within 17,000 with only 74% reporting. I think Mitt better get his attorneys busy.

cc 11.06.12 at 11:53 pm

Headclunker, I hope you’re right and that Mitt still has a fighting chance to change this outcome. When I heard Fox call it for the fraud, my heart plummeted 10 stories into the dark abyss. I truly can’t believe this pretender will get four more years. Who does he have to thank? The mainstream media who covered ALL his gaffes every step of the way! We soooo need someone to focus on our economy, but that won’t happen now. I’m truly scared the U.S. will end up like Greece and Spain. All I can do is keep praying for a better future for our country.

Headclunker 11.07.12 at 12:00 am

The divisive POTUS may carry on, but it will be with the fucktard half of the county. I am just disgusted. I will survive but so many others will not.

Shadowfax 11.07.12 at 12:03 am

Another 4 more years of lies, cheating and downgrading of America.

This is almost as painful as 2008.

(((((PUMAs and MURPH))))

Headclunker 11.07.12 at 12:06 am

Even if Romney gets Ohio, he still has a hard case making his 270. I think this elections just makes a case for getting rid of the electoral college.

And I have to tell you, I had real reservations about Romney’s energy policies. The choices for POTUS were poor. I just hope we have a country left in 2016.

pumacraig 11.07.12 at 12:09 am

I won’t survive! I eat one small meal a day now! Jerk Face has hurt me and folks like me much worse then Bush did. Medicare is already denying medication and IV fluids etc.. Plus you lose your freedom when the government is all you have to survive on! Romney better not make that call tonight he should wait for all the votes to be counted….

Me – Oh Candice (pumacraig) you are so god damned dramatic, ease up woman and deal with reality!

DancesWithPumas 11.07.12 at 12:14 am

I feel as if I’ve journeyed through yet another looking-glass tonight, which renders everything so distorted that I can no longer navigate with the meager tools I have at my disposal.

I cherish the connections I’ve made with like-minded kindred spirits and will always be grateful for their / your uplifting and positive support.

I wish you all well.
I’m done.

Me – Farewell Pam aka Dances with Idiots, you should have gone long ago you hateful bitch!…lol!

pumacat 11.07.12 at 12:20 am

The country agrees that the economy sucks and that Romney has better ideas for the economy. All the polls showed that. But yet Obama won and women voters gave him this victory. The democrat party has been sucessful in convincing women voters that without their devine right to have an abortion they are not truly free. What has America come to. And why would any PUMA vote for Elizabeth Warren. That is basically giving Obama more power to push trough his Marxist agenda. I really don’t understand this country any more. Maybe people are tired of responsibility. Maybe they just want to stay unemployed and let the government take care of them. And maybe women would rather have abortions than babies.

Me – What an idiotic dumbass you are, loser!

HP Boston 11.07.12 at 7:35 am

Stick a fork in me I am done!
Four more fucking years of Ofartinajar!
My sister just called she is so bummed too……….
We are ready for our sister week, meeting up tomorrow. Misery will have company, we will of course laugh and have a great time, better if could dance on shitforbrains grave!

Me – Thank God you hateful troll, good riddance to you!

Thanks for tuning in everyone, Puma is officially done! Congrats to President Obama! Goodnight!

PumaPAC Endorses Obama by not endorsing Obama!

•November 5, 2012 • Comments Off on PumaPAC Endorses Obama by not endorsing Obama!

I have no idea what the fuck I’m talking about but that’s ok
cause I have some stupid ass people who listen regardless……

I would like to thank Dumbaugh Murphy of for making it official and Endorsing Romney, thereby guaranteeing an Obama win. For those of you who don’t know this, any candidate that pumapac endorses always loses so I am more than happy that Murphy and her ilk have backed Romney and the Republican party, thereby enabling me to rest easy that Obama will pull out a Victory comprising of over 300+ ECV’s for the President according to Nate Silver at 538 blog.  So Murphy, do us all a favor and keep endorsing the losers keeping your record in tact, I mean why destroy a good thing? Now, back to irrelevancy with you!….hahahahaha


4 more years!

Darragh Murphy is still an IDIOT Edition….

•October 21, 2012 • Comments Off on Darragh Murphy is still an IDIOT Edition….


It sure has been a while since I visited,  so I thought I would drop in to see what they have been up to since failing big time during the last election, not surprisingly nothing has changed in Dumbaugh Murphy’s little echo chamber. She still rails against Obama and his supposed anti-woman ways while also championing the Republican candidate Mitt Romney.  We always knew she was never a Democrat supporter but a Republican troll masking as a Hillary supporter.  Murphy is truly an idiot leading a  decertified  PAC on a mission to nowhere, I hate to even send a small amount of traffic her way, I mean with the 20 or so followers still left behind why give them any more exposure than need be. Here is hoping that once her boy Romney loses, Pumapac is thrown on the trash heap of history where it belongs…carry on my fellow Obama bots!
