Cathy McMorris Rogers continues her disingenuous ways. Her column did not address a single issue that many of us have with her and her behavior in Washington. How in the world can a leader in the House of Representatives continue running lazy campaigns as a perpetual "Washington outsider?" She is part and parcel of the new GOP; far more interested in alarming their base with endless calls to fear about what America has lost rather than how we can still secure a decent future for the people of this country. She consistently votes in a manner that is harmful for many residents of the 5th District so she can continue to cozy up to ideological nutjobs in her party who have paralyzed politics in America. She has broken faith with the people she claims to represent and no longer deserves to be our "outsider" in Washington DC. This is not about conservatives and liberals folks. This is simply about arrogance, power, and the continual use of misdirection to hide behind conservatism while punishing voters with nitwit policies that have harmed this district and this nation while keeping the ideological fires at full burn. It is time to see through this charade and throw Cathy out of Congress. In her leadership position, she has helped to make Congress what it is; fat, lazy, overly partisan, and completely ineffective.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers is disengenuous at best when blaming Obama and Democrats for the lack of progress toward a budget in Washington. This mess started with opposition to the Affordable Healthcare Act and then suddenly changed to an entitlement reduction issue when they realized they had run down a blind alley with no way out. The GOP is attempting to get by extortion what it can not get through accepted political means... and everyone knows it. Every poll in America shows that the American public has finally realized how duplicitous and off-the-charts crazy the GOP has become. Her participation as a GOP leader in this attempt to scam the American people should be remembered come election time in 2014. She should be ashamed rather than indignant.
George Nethercutt is not stupid, but perhaps your deadline did not give him enough time to fully digest what happened on election day. I hope that he now more deeply understands the many lessons that elections always provide to the losers. I want to give George the benefit of the doubt, but if his commentary still reflects how he really feels, then George is still drinking the GOP Kool-Aid and he should get used to providing ridiculous and inane comments following future GOP election losses. Mitt Romney was the best the GOP could do... and he was completely wrong for this election. He was a member of the financial class that brought the nation to its knees in 2008. He had money stashed offshore to avoid paying taxes that the rest of us cannot avoid. He championed tax cuts for the rich and could never provide a single detail on a single policy he proposed throughout the campaign. He switched his positions on every policy he proposed during the GOP primaries and yet told us he was principled. Really? Further, he failed to tell the truth about anything at any point during the campaign. He is a bullshitter George and your party is lucky to be finished with him.If you want to win elections George your party must be honest, open, and supportive of someone beyond the wealthy. You must quit making villains of those who disagree with you. Oh never mind... won´t happen.
