Boner reminds me of the Iraqis who tried to surrender to a CNN news crew and the surrender was refused. What an asshat!

They continue to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Bonehead should have been replaced as Speaker a long time ago.
Maybe the House could hire, or rent, Putin as Speaker....LMAO.
At least odongo is scared spitless of him....

To paraphrase Dean Wormer in Animal House:


Tan, drunk and stupid is no way to govern Mr. Speaker”

lambastes feckless GOP House Speaker John Boehner's surrender to President Obama

What surrender?

So far the House is standing strong which has caused a drop in Obama's approval and continual whining and foot-stomping from the One.

Yes we have to be careful and watchful of disinformation here. The NY media is coming down heavy now with false commentary and skewed polls. But the truth is indeed found on the House floor where the republicans are holding the line.

Yep, please don't let us down John! If this nation survives, Congress standing firm against suicidal spending and an out of control federal government will prove critical.

In agree that it is a little early to make this determination, especially when a lot of what we hear is from MSM sources.

So true. The times when Boehner is clearly standing strong are the wrong times to attack the Speaker.

What the H*ll is wrong with you people. The man has done everything we want to this point, he's stood firm, in the face of the media onslaught that it's HIS fault he's continued the stand. With very little leverage, active media opposition, and some ugly discord from the RINO senators, and all you can do is bitch about him.

It's no wonder were such losers.

What surrender?

He has been thus far been effective negotiating against himself and he is still losing.

What should happen ---For every week that Barry and Harry refuse the CR with no funding for ACA they add another demand. That's right they add not subtract. Demands could include the keystone pipeline, the real enforcement of the border, an investigation into voter "irregularities", Senate to pass a budget, sanctions against the IRS, full release of Barry's official records that were locked up by executive order, defunding of the EPA, defunding of TSA, investigation of racketeering charges on the targeting of business that were supportive of political opposition to Barry (Chrysler dealers, Chick-filet, Hobby Lobby, Gibson Guitar, lumber liquidators, et al.) You up the stakes if they refuse - not surrender - use the occasion to assault the regimes corruption, isolate, attack and only settle for the CR without OBarry care. Highlight the vindictiveness and pettiness of the closings, the obesity of government, the audacity to pass bills with one party, the irregularities of the process to shackle the future with government usurpation. You get out there and you fight. Yes the press is all in for the administration, but with each passing day they demonstrate they are but propaganda and every day Americans are waking up to the fact they have been duped.

The way Boehner is negotiating he will send the CR that the democrats want in exchange for getting to mow the yard and clean the toilets at the VP mansion.

Where do we hear Boehner’s response: “Josh Price, The Brave Little Blog Pimp.”

I agree completely that the polls are skewed. I don’t buy that Obamacare is now magically more popular than before it’s launch. That’s BS.

But the House GOP even giving an inch here is tantamount to surrender. I know many of you will disagree with that, but that’s how I see it.

I’m sick of this “practical vs. principle” politics that has gotten our clocks cleaned the last two Presidential elections.

What do you call Boehner’s offer?

Do you think that offer was “standing strong”?

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt’s Generals:

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

[by “anti-government activists” is meant church-burning jihadists]

Thanks SoConPubbie.

As Cruz hews to hard line, other 2016 contenders go mute on shutdown
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3077997/posts

[snip] ...in the aftermath of Cruz’s fiery speech... The shutdown went unmentioned by Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), both early champions of the defunding battle. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who is working toward a compromise with the White House on the shutdown and debt ceiling that does not erode ObamaCare, made a short argument for his alternate plan in Friday afternoon video message to the group... Paul’s and Rubio’s dodges, and Ryan’s implicit rebuke, demonstrate that they are seeking to avoid being tainted by the fight’s fallout while avoiding any confrontation with the party’s base. Cruz used his speech to frame the debate over ObamaCare and the government shutdown in stark terms, painting it as a key battle in the larger war for individual freedom. [/snip]

Will someone—anyone—please explain to me how John Boehner’s offer can be construed as standing firm?

You don't specify which offer.

If it's the attached Obamacare provision, the House hasn't changed its position.

One thing that is a certainty: John Boehner is no Ted Cruz. “Cowardly Elephant” is a perfect description for Boehner. His predecessor was Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion in the “Wizard of Oz.”
