A group of House Republicans conspired in the demise of Speaker John Boehner. They thought he was ineffective. Unfortunately their replacement Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, was even more ineffective. He committed a gaffe that fit the Democrat’s narrative that the Benghazi hearings were all about destroying Hillary.
So they had to whack him too.
It hasn’t gone well for congressional Republicans since they drove out John Boehner last week.
Cecile Richards ran circles around grandstanding congressmen at a Planned Parenthood hearing this week.
And Boehner’s presumed heir to the House, Kevin McCarthy, wrote the Benghazi hearings into Hillary’s ongoing script of The Great Right Wing Conspiracy. Kathleen Parker explains here and Peggy Noonan here.
The President of the U.S. said this week that anyone opposed to his Iran deal is a “knee jerk partisan no different than those who say Death to America”.
His negotiating partner, the supreme leader of Iran, says, “Death to America“.
Rich Lowry says the deal isn’t a treaty because a treaty requires a two thirds vote in the Senate for approval. This deal is rigged to require a two thirds vote for disapproval.
Apparently Chuck Schumer now says, “Death to America!”
Cecil the Lion chased baby body parts off the front page. The Planned Parenthood scandal isn’t popular with the Washington Elite. The Obama administration thinks Planned Parenthood adheres to the the highest ethical standards for fetus crunching. The Senate had no stomach for defunding the organization.
It wasn’t just the lion story. As of July 24 Michael Barone says there were 773 stories about the confederate flag compared to 31 on the Planned Parenthood video.
