Whoa! While Speaker Boehner snubbed Obama at White House holiday party, Senator DeMint is snubbing and slamming Speaker Boehner. Boehner was already taking some heat over purging conservatives from committees. Now, his fiscal cliff offer to Obama is being panned.

Sen. DeMint wasted no time in joining the growing chorus against the offer.


Some, especially in the media, are pointing out that DeMint had a different view before.

But, these Twitter users are thinking about now.

As is fellow South Carolina Senator, Linsdey Graham.

Scary, but true.

    From here, it looks like Boehner threw such an aggressive compromise out there only to prove that O has no intention of averting the cliff. Well played, Mr. Speaker, well played.

      Yeah, so what’s the surprise?

      I’ve been talking about Speaker Smeagol since his second reelection.

      Instead, Levine said ‘hold your nose, pull the level, soldier-on!’

      I’m really angry at the Talkers on Talk Radio right now!

      They helped bring us to this, intended or not.

      I like to think it was smaltzy sentimentality with the Republican Party History— especially in Levine’s case.

      I have almost boundless respect for Mark Levine, but sometimes he acts his age… and all of us have been young twits before we settled into maturity.

      Me, I’ve settled into disrepair.

      Speaking of which——

      One of my great-granddaughters has started to refer to me as “Ancient One”. The whole shtick.
      She’s switched from ballet to martial arts and her Dad gave her VHS copies of his favorite show.

      I knew those old VHS tapes of Kung Fu & Kung Fu Returns was a bad idea. But they were her Dad’s favorites, and I’m only her great-Granddad Grumpus… I saw trouble a-coming, but what could I say?

      Well, it will pass, eventually. It’ll burn itself out just like it did when he was doing it.

      You don’t suppose her Dad’s egging her on, do you?

        Haha. There is a neo-progressive radio host called Mark Levine who fills in for Leslie Marshall sometimes. Think you meant Mark Levin.

      That is an assanine statement. This is not a game. NO MORE TAXES PERIOD. ON ANYONE PERIOD. AND, AND, AND, AND START CUTTING ENTITLEMENTS

  • HannahJK

    He’d be wise to spend his time figuring out what they did wrong that cost them the Senate and what they’re going to do to fix that. None of the republicans who are even allowed in the ballpark for this game are in the Senate.

  • Steve_J

    They had better damn well start getting specific about what “entitlements” they are talking about and stop talking in generalities.

    Buckle up and purchase a parachute, y’all….we’re going over the cliff in three and a half weeks. You think this recession is painful, just wait for the Great Obama Depression of 2013……The end of any chance to reclaim American Exceptionalism. It is all over……

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    Listen to your Grump-pa! I know what I’m talking about.

    Sneaker Speaker Smeagol will do his utmost to make sure Republicans have fingerprints on this!

  • ATNorth

    Iowahawk nailed it. As usual.

  • moonsbreath

    Boehner needs to be replaced with Ryan.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Do not call for Ryan, he has been a no show, and has kept very quiet, He is not as courageous as you think. To me he has lost my respect, not a single word on any of the problems we face.He has become another politician.
