The Democratic Party Versus the Tea Party

by Peter Ferrara

The Democrats consider the Tea Party and its grassroots activists to be on another planet, and bitterly oppose everything they believe in … like balancing the budget.

    3 Disturbing Images of Obama (lets concentrate on #1 of the 3, the Budget) 

    Published March 14, 2011 By Karl Rove

    Last week was a bad week for America because it was a bad week for President Obama

    Then there was the on-going budget battle. The failure of Mr. Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass a budget before the start of the fiscal year last October 1 is an astonishing act of incompetence. They controlled the entire process with wide margins in both houses. Now we are reduced to funding the government of the world’s most powerful nation with continuing resolutions that cover two or three-week periods. And Congressional Democrats are whining it is impossible to cut $60 billion out of a budget that consists of $3.8 trillion dollars.

    At a Friday morning press conference Mr. Obama called the failure to pass a budget “irresponsible” and said “the notion that we can’t get resolved last year’s budget in a sensible way…defies common sense.” But he was not passive observer. He’s the president who failed to get his own budget approved by his own party last year. 

    Then Mr. Obama went on to say of the budget that “it shouldn’t be that complicated…to get this completed.” This came after weeks during which Democratic Congressional leaders criticized the president for providing no leadership, then the appointment by Mr. Obama of Vice President Joe Biden as his personal negotiator on the budget, and Mr. Biden’s almost immediate departure for a weeklong foreign trip. Mr. Obama still refused to get his hands dirty by offering a possible solution.

    Hooray for the U.S. House For Standing Up to Regulatory Tyranny On Cap-and-Trade and Net Neutrality

    Published March 14, 2011  By Phil Kerpen

    With the Republican House putting the brakes on Obama’s continued pursuit of a “fundamental transformation” of America through the legitimate legislative process, action has shifted to the regulatory realm, where this administration is aggressively pursuing its agenda. 

    Unelected regulators are usurping the legislative power that the people, in the Constitution, granted to Congress. Just as judicial tyranny (judges usurping legislative power) has been a major and well-founded concern of activists for decades, Congress must step in and stop this regulatory tyranny.

    Fortunately, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will begin action today to stop two of the most egregious regulatory power grabs of this administration. As documented at www.ObamaChart.com, the EPA’s global warming regulations and the FCC’s Internet regulations…
