Speaker Boehner Warns House Republicans Not To Celebrate If ObamaCare Is Overturned
Conservative Nation News ^ | June 21, 2012

Posted on 06/21/2012 3:26:31 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

(The Hill) -- Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned Republican House members not to to celebrate if the Supreme Court rules against the healthcare law.

"There will be no spiking of the ball," he wrote in a memo to the conference. "Republicans are focused on the economy … We will not celebrate at a time when millions of our fellow Americans remain out of work."

The memo came after a tense morning when the Supreme Court could have issued its ruling, but did not.

The next possible day for a decision is Monday, June 25. Justices could also issue a ruling later next week.

The House Republicans won’t need to celebrate, Bonerhead. The voters of this great country will be doing the celebrating.

No point in agitating the idiots more than they need to.

However, I’m not a congressman.

Why would Boehner say something like this? Is he expecting a partial vote down? Or Obama to usurp the Supreme Court by dictate and assume the rest of the Congress will do nothing? Why say “if we win, don’t be happy”?

I totally agree. Sick of playing mr. nice guy. This is a sham that he would even utter those words.

I’ll celebrate all I want. Just like here in WI, the dems told us all NOT to celebrate and not to rub it in their faces when Walker won AGAIN. I did not, nor did my friends. But I can think what I want. Boo Hoo is spineless.

Why would Boehner say something like this?

No, he is doing it, a bit ham-handedly, because it is an election year and he is terrified of offending independents - the group of voters that will choose the next President and the makeup of the House and Senate.

They are, at the danger of offending them, a bunch of Rodney King "let's all get along" ninnies and sissies and get their panties in a wad if Republicans start acting "partisan". That's why he's doing it, he needs the votes of that cohort in order to win. That's why Democrats always try to bait the Republicans into something they can claim is "partisan"...because the independents piss all over themselves when they hear that.

Yet, those numb nuts actually decide the elections. What a frickin' mess this country has become.

Actually, that doesn't happen at all---see 2010 for many examples. But that is the spew the media and beltway "consultants," like Rover, want you to swallow.

No, Boehner is absolutely correct: there should be no celebrating/gloating.

What there needs to be is serious commentary and resolve that SCOTUS made the correct decision in protecting the Constitution and our Republic. We can expect the Left to to thermonuclear over this: OUR job is to protect the integrity of the Court as they continue and expand their attempts to tear it down. I believe that this decision only marks the latest chapter in this fight. Celebrating/gloating plays right into our enemies’ hands.

Very true. But better to plan to keep the genie in the bottle, rather than have to try to shove it back in once out.

The Left has been doing the Alinsky thing on the credibility and the integrity of the Court for years now. Fix, personalize, polarize. Actively working to create the perception that it's just another partisan branch of the government rather than holding a unique place in our Republic as the final, ultimate arbiter of the Constitution and protector of this nation's founding principles.

The best thing that we can do IF Obamacare is overturned is stick to principled and serious discussion of why the law was wrong and why the court is (again, IF) correct in overturning it.

Celebrating/gloating would be portrayed as reinforcing the notion of the Court as a partisan body. It would do to Conservatives exactly what the boorish behavior by Liberals at the Paul Wellstone funeral did to the Left. Not only are we Conservatives better than that, we are smarter than that too.

Just like McCain. Don’t want to upset the Democrats. If only we had a party of do rather than “why can’t we just get along”? This is scary and there are no Republicans anymore. They’re all just a bunch of wimpy hand wringing cowards.

these people decide elections because a good deal of so called “conservatives” are too damn busy to go to the polls and vote.... when I hear a cheer because voter turnout was 50%, it turns my stomach...

STFU "Mr. Speaker".

"Republicans are focused on the economy"

Try "focusing" on getting the illegitimate Kenyan out of office and restoring our constitution.

The main reason the economy sucks IS BECAUSE THE F'N GOVERNMENT WON'T LEAVE THE MARKETPLACE ALONE!!!

Perhaps the pols in Washington shouldn’t be celebrating, but the rest of us definitely should.

It will be extremely important that liberals get the message that they were wrong to even attempt this overstep, this egregious usurpation of power and process-this blatant violation of our constitution.

It’s not only what was done, but how it was done. It was a dirty deed, and if it’s overturned, schadenfraude will be justified.

Since Obamacare was the major thrust in what has been a liberal blitzkrieg on the private sector, the Supreme Court’s ruling could be as momentous for those of us in the private sector as the liberation of Paris was for the French in WW2. Many who own businesses won’t think I’m exaggerating.

I think this would be a time to resurrect the great tea-party gatherings of the past. I was there when Nancy Pelosi carried that gavel accross the mall, and I’d like to be there again just to yell and scream at her.

It would feel really good.

Oops, the Pelosi march was across the Capitol grounds, not the mall.

I will celebrate to be sure. I will celebrate even more if my insurance rates go back down to where they were before Soetorocare was passed. I won’t be holding my breath on that one, though.
