We're About to Snatch the Gavel from Feckless RINO Doormat John Boehner
Reaganite Republican ^ | 17 December 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 12/17/2012 2:56:48 AM PST by Reaganite Republican


Why is Barack Obama playing hardball on fiscal-cliff talks with Gee-Oh-Pee 'leadership' -clearly not negotiating in good faith- as he seems to even welcome the pending economic catastrophe most sensible Americans find so terrifying?

If Obama looks like he doesn't care, it's because he doesn't: the WH knew from the start that weaker-than-circus-lemonade John Boehner would play tough at first, then promptly cave on things like still-yet-another debt ceiling increase and ill-advised new taxes on the entrepreneurs and small businesses that Reagan said 'create most or all of the economic growth in the U.S.'

Meanwhile, the most damaging president in US history is happy to allow radical defense cuts and heavy taxes to kick in if he can't get a dream-deal from the GOP: Obama has no problem with many fiscal-cliff consequences anyway, and he's clearly convinced that the left can exploit any crisis politically while blaming it all on the Republicans. That is, unless Barry hears something from Boehner he really likes, and with the way the Republican old-guard's crumbling already, expect the worst.


Intellectual lightweight John Boehner has attempted to marginalize the TEA Party when he wasn't busy crying or forking-over to the 'progressives' trillions of (borrowed) dollars, hasn't considered anything slightly brave -like, say, defunding ObamaCare- nor even once came up with the sort of legislation actual constitutional conservatives might expect from people calling themselves 'Republicans'.

The guy is not only ineffective, but simply not promoting our agenda at-all: Boo-Hoo Boehner's merely a useful idiot, comic target, and totally non-threatening 'opponent' for the Obama Administration to slap-around at-will... he's working out great as a progressive foil while not really doing anything one would recognize as 'conservative'.

Every day the GOP limps along with John Boehner as House Speaker is another day for a terrible negotiator with no core principles to sit in a sidecar while the Bolshevik Boy Wonder blasts us down the road to socialism... and I for one am friggin sick of it:  if The Orange Menace dares to conspire with Obama in order to hike taxes on the entrepreneurial class in the middle of a recession, he's finished as House Speaker- and any Republican who votes for it will be primaried in 2014 by a viable TEA Party alternative- KNOW THAT, Republican squish-bags.



The good news is that it only takes a handful of rebel GOP legislators to show the Obama's doormat the door... 
and that's precisely what we're going to do-

Ned Ryun @ RedState:

If conservatives want to determine their own leadership on the Hill, it starts with firing John Boehner as Speaker.

I described how and why here. 

We need all of you to make this happen. 


We only need 16 conservatives to abstain from the Speaker vote to depose Boehner and force the GOP caucus to pick new leadership. 


We’ve had thousands of activists nationwide ask how they can help. For now, we suggest calling and writing conservative Congressmen in your area.

Here’s a suggested letter/email.

For a list of target Congressmen to send it to, please scroll below (at this link)


Here’s the link to email your Congressperson.

Obama wants to go over the cliff.

Blaming it on Repubs was just icing on the cake.

Boner will not be removed. If 16 republicans vote against him there are 16 democrats who will be more than happy to vote FOR him. They do not want a tea partier as speaker.

We are in deep doo doo,

The worst President in the history of our country,
the worst Senate Majority leader in the history of the country and the worst Speaker of the House to ever sit in the chair.

All at a time when we need competent people to lead us out of recession government created.

We need to do somthing. Boehner has surrendered on both taxes and spending. He appears to want the GOP to go over the cliff.

And the Senate Minority Leader isn’t too great, either.

We need fewer nebbishes in GOP leadership roles, and Boehner and McConnell are nothing but walking doormats.

And the alternative to John Boehner is....

An old truism is “you can’t beat somebody with nobody”.

Who would displace Boehner? No serious prospects seem to be put forth so far. Theoretically, Newt Gingrich COULD be recalled to the job, as it is not necessary that the the Speaker of the House be a currently elected Representative of any district.

Newt has the advantage of being a motivator and has a decent vision of the way things are supposed to be.

Dems voting for Boehner would be really interesting to see. Let’s force that hand.

That vote would rip the mask off the “2-party” system in congress. What we really have is 2 types of professional political class statists.

That would be almost as good as getting a truly conservative Speaker of the House.

The Tea Party caucus is a toothless tiger. No organization. No unity. No point person willing to articulate the conservative cause and tell Boehner bluntly that his time as Speaker is done. 2010 left us with so much promise, immediately followed by so much disappointment. Less than a year after the “we’re mad as hell” voters sent a message to Washington, the representatives they elected either went silent or actively backed RINOs such as Mitt Romney in the Republican primaries.

I hope these points change. The country needs it.

The good news is that all of these challenges are manageable.

Republicans will never get a bill through that defunds obamacare. But they can fail to fund its implementation. The Republican HoR should make it known that there will be no more continuing resolutions to keep government open for business - the government will only function by budget. If the HoR begins by passing the budget in sections, first only those sections that are important to Republicans, at the spending levels they want to achieve, it will be up to Harry Reid to pass or to stall government.

There should be no break the pace in sending the approved bills for funding government over to the Senate to be acted upon. Any government stoppage would be laid at the foot of Reid where hundreds of funding bill have gone to die. Nothing important to democrats should be sent over to the Senate before Republican sections are approved.

"Dems voting for Boehner would be really interesting to see. Let’s force that hand."

Saw an interesting comment to a similar article on American Thinker. The gist was that if the Tea Partiers in the house revolted against Boehner, it could lead to a return of Nancy Pelosi to the speakership. All the Dems and a handfull of reach across the aisle rhino types could make the math work. Would there then be any check to the imperial presidency?

That is why Boehner needs to step down and support a conservative for Speaker. Unless he really favors Pelosi.

Jeb Hensarling or Tom Price would be mega better than Tammy Faye. Tom Price would be outstanding.
