Skip to comments.John Boehner Must Go
Posted on 04/10/2011 8:44:39 PM PDT by publius321
What Im hearing all over the news is that the leaders of the Democrat Party are claiming victory and the Republican Party leaders are claiming victory in last weeks short term budget battle.
The fact is that they are both right. They both won. The only losers in this deal are the American people and the Republic for which we stand.
In the short run it was a great achievement for ambitious politicians who fantasize about their place in history. In the long run it will not matter what they did because the way things are going, someone else, Communist China most likely, will be writing the history books; so posterity will scarcely know who they were.
I hear some of the posers on the right as they attempt to put some lipstick on this pig but the more I ruminate on the matter, the more disgusted I become.
Im tired of being... (continued)

Agreed and the sooner the better.
This was already lost when Boehner was selected as Speaker.
He a compromising survivor, not an ideological leader. And, I repeat, he has so many scandalous skeletons in his DC closet, that he is susceptible to Democrat "blackmail." Bit of a social butterfly, our Johnny. Been known to have the drink taken, and quite the gallant with the fair sex.
The guy is no good. His highest and best use was as a backbench wheeler-dealer with a vote for sale: great lobbyist material, lousy legislator.
Hire Trump to negotiate with Reid.
I say Boehner STEP DOWN NOW!!! NOW!!!
Come on folks! Just who do you want in charge? He has done a decent job so far against 2/3rds of the government. What do you expect under the circumstances?
Crying man, needs to go NOW and whoever put that drunk on us as well.
Sorry, but you are just being against any advances. He has done a great job against 2/3rds of the opposition.
Just what did you expect? (or hope for?)
Descent Job ??? By what standards - Giving away the store standards ... Good Grief...
Damn...just where are you anyway? He has forced the Congress to actually decrease spending for the first time in my history... - the first in a decade or more, what do you want anyway? Maybe a trillion decrease in spending - good luck with that.
Get with some minimal decreases to start with with ever increasing decreases in the future... at least it is going in the right direction!
Good angle. Too little, too late right now.
Someone,anyone who does not wilt and cry,a person with fire in the belly,This guy has been a disgrace since somehow he got that job and the playing patty cake with the Rat's at the SOU was infuriating and weak also asking that witch faced scaly Pelosi to join him!!!!!!!!!!!! get out John and take your Kleenex and wine bottles.
“Sorry, but you are just being against any advances. He has done a great job against 2/3rds of the opposition.
Just what did you expect? (or hope for?)”
Balls. These are the same kinds of lame excuses we heard from the RINOS when we had all 3 branches. The precedent has been set. No balls.
I guess you would be right if we ignored the fact that Boehner's branch which he leads is 100% of the spending bills and taxing authority under the US Constitution.
When you consider that, Boehner appears very weak. He has to go.
Actually, you may be right! We really have to decrease our spending by much more to sustain our credit rating.
The problem is that this Congress (Senate - President) do NOT understand that we are in dire straits...
So, the only thing that we can do is to limit what we can and hope for both a Senate vote and a Presidential vote to get total control. Only then will we be able to save the country...
Actually, the only hope for the country is for the election of Senators and a President that cares... Good luck with our current ignorant electorate...
It is just NOT ENOUGH... !!! NOT ENOUGH !!! Boehner is a PUSSY - plain and simple... RINO Compromise will NEVER DO - NEVER!!! Liberal Democrats NEVER compromise - Weak Butt Republicans like Boehner just give away the store... STOP COMPROMISING with the Democrat Party THAT NEVER COMPROMISES - the only compromising is done by WEAK A$$ed Republicans Like Boehner — Mr. Boner is a BONER .... Enough ALREADY!!!
Okay, our only hope is to elect a Republican President and a Republican majority in the Senate. Do you really think that it will resolve the problem? These folks are politicians and they will continue to fight the effort to reduce the budget when it effects their constituents.
The future continues to look bleak regardless of what happens in the 1012 election. That is both a constant and a promise. We are doomed either way it seems...
Spot on Deagle!
And a lot of RINOs.
Paul Ryan wants to cut $6 trillion over the next 10 years. If it took several months to agree to a mere $39 billion, (less than 1% of the budget), how long will it take to get agreement on $6 trillion?
Massive federal spending is important to Democrats because it buys them power by funneling tax dollars into the pockets of their union backers, and by creating a culture of dependency that serves only to build their voter base. These lib parasite groups are panicked about being thrown off the gravy train.
Get ready folks, this fight has just begun, and it will certainly become more interesting in the next few months. Be prepared for outlandish claims of the evil intentions of Republicans, and for violence and a complete disregard for the rule of law when the left does not get its way.
Like your response! heh...
I don’t like/trust a guy that cant handle his chosen job. Cry all you want. On the clock?
I have little hope for the future! Heck, they could cut almost everything and still be running a deficit - what do you do then?
Gloomy is a good outlook...
“He has done a decent job so far against 2/3rds of the government.”
You call being a doormat to the liberals a “decent job”?
“Actually, the only hope for the country is for the election of Senators and a President that cares
It’s not even a matter of “caring” when it comes to the Saboteur we have as President. He cares - aabout destroying this country from within. He’s a very effective President. He’s effective at Sabotage.
Somebody who knows how to paste this video should do us the honor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ns5W1dAk_T0
It is time to fulfill Col. Allen West’s request to Pelosi - and Mr. Boehner, “Give me that Daned gavel”.
You’re way to depressive(?) here... He made a decent deal with what he had and still has much to go.. You are being way to pessimistic with the outcome. I don’t like the deal either, but considering the alternatives, he did very good.
You can’t continue to expect the best when we only control the Congress - Senate and Presidency not ours.. You should be thanking your lucky stars that we were able to at least stem the outrageous spending of the Democrats...
More to come...
Makes two of us.
We have already lost the fight against raising the debt ceiling. We just approved a budget that increases the debt in excess of the current ceiling. How can we now argue that the ceiling should not be raised?
Great!... and what are you going to do about it?
We couldn't beat Reid. Wisconsin and Ohio are looking better, Illinois is going to the other extreme..let's make our case and see what happens...might even elect a different speaker...
He did a lousy job. Horrible. He didn’t even negotiate much less talk about anything of significance. A measly 12 hours of federal spending? A mere 0.137% of the total budget? He held this nation’s spending at bay for that???
He caved and caved big. All it took was Obama threatening to veto something and Bonehead caved. When Bush would say he might veto something the Democrats rammed it down his throat. They called his bluff and got their way.
When Obama claimed the military wouldn’t get funding I’d have passed the military appropriations bill, jammed it into Obama’s face and publicly dared him to veto it. He might have, for about half a day, until the public turned on him. Bonehead didn’t have the guts. He is a DC polidiot and entrenched in the swill.
Not sure that is true! Might be, but I will have to wait for Congress to act. Actually, I hope that they vote NO on raising the limit and continue with decreases in spending to allow for that... is that a dream? No, that will NOT cause a default of our debt!
Oh well, if it does pass, I hope that Republicans fight the increases eery step.... Yeah, I know, that is a pipe dream.
If the teaparty didnt signoff on these leaders then they are not what we are looking for.2012 needs to clean out a bunch more of these rinos and crybaby and mcconnel should be on that list.AT THE TOP of that list.
What a crowd of whiners and quitters have been posting on this subject. Talk about crybabies!
Yes, he did have problems... not getting the military out of the problem was definitely key.
As to other problems, I say he did well for the problems that he faced. That is okay that you disagree - many Democrats also disagree (sorry, not trying to mix you with them)... just that many will and do disagree...
I can only say that I think that he did a good job within the parameters that he had to work. That is of course the problem as seen by the media...
He did the best political job that he could do under the circumstances (says he - I wanted better)...
We are forecast to hit the debt ceiling in mid-May. We have just approved a budget that runs through Sept. 30th. Boehner knew this debt would exceed the debt ceiling and would make the debt ceiling debate mute. He caved on two issues with one vote.
Hey, I think that they wish that things were better - ie, a balanced budget! Now wouldn’t that be something worth celebrating? These folks really just want someone and somewhere to expound their ideas. Goodness knows that they are not only right but the basis of society... We can only hope that they succeed...
Yep. the future is now what Boehner does, not what he had done in the past. I agree that his time is now and how he handles it is key! I have given him grace for the past, but it is not time to step up and take charge.
Willing to give him comfort, but only if he does the right thing...and he knows what is right! If he does not do the right thing - the Tea Party will bring him to bear...
Waiting with baited breath...heh...
Hope that does not happen...but we do need to vote NO on this and continue reductions in spending... The chances of this happening are nil...
You’re exactly right. We only started the job of cleaning house in 2010, and there is plenty more to do in 2012 and 2014. Boehner isn’t the perfect Speaker but he will do for now.
You look like a fool, Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips wrote in a post on the groups website, directing his message at the Ohio Republican. Charlie Sheen is now making more sense than John Boehner. Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0311/50576.html#ixzz1JJPhodLZ
Actually, I am leaning toward your position. He has NOT sustained my belief in the Republican party so far.
Am beginning to think third party as blasphemous as that seems...
