Is John Boehner Finally Finished?
Reaganite Republican ^ | 12 February 2014 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 02/12/2014 6:51:39 AM PST by Reaganite Republican

Mark Levin and Tea Party/Senate Conservatives  
declare war on John Boehner's teetering speakership


The latest cave-in by the GOP's weaker-than-circus-lemonade congressional 'leadership' finally has most all conservatives seeing that the time is NOW for new talent (or any talent) at the top of the party. The SCF, Mark Levin, and Tea Party Patriots have rolled-out the heavy artillery, aimed straight at the listless reign of John Boehner, who the Tea Party put in power, only to be mocked, derided, dismissed, and basically told to go home and shut-up.

It's long overdue, and I don't know how anyone could justify limping-along into the 2014 midterms with John Boehner in charge. Under him, the party lacks principle, direction, and leadership at every level... it's not that hard to understand why people don't see any reason to be voting Republican, he and McConnell surely aren't offering them any, neither verbally nor through their actions. 

Shouldn't the House Speaker be able to speak? Boehner seemed a rambling drunk on Leno last month- what was the point of even going on there if you're just going to mumble/look stupid... and have nothing to say (except for that the shutdown is our fault?)

The Senate Conservatives Fund -who recently released a powerful video exposing Mitch McConnell as the Mother-of-All-RINOs is a PAC closely allied with the Tea Party movement. And they've had their fill of John Boehner's Lilly-livered term as House Speaker, too- they've put together a new website dedicated to the cause of drumming-up the 15 votes required to block Boehner from retaining his gavel. Mark Levin has dedicated himself fully to the cause as well.

And although there's not a plethora of obvious conservative candidates to replace John Boehner in the House, there is new Republican leadership emerging on Capitol Hill in-general...  recent polls offer a glimpse of what the people want.

Oh, and you other 28 Vichy Republicans in the House that voted for surrender and continued collaboration with the Obamunists, the Tea Party is
coming for you, too...

Do you have a GOP Representative? Contact him or her today and ask these two questions:

1. Do you support John Boehner continuing as Speaker of the House?

2. Will you make a —public— statement in that regard?

I, for one, would love to know who’s pulling Boehner’s strings and what leverage they have over him. If he were to plan his political demise by the numbers, he wouldn’t do it any differently than he is right now.

Recall that Boehner crticised Ted Cruz and the shutdown by saying that they were saving their ammunition for the debt ceiling fight.

Looks like he shot his wad a long time ago. Didn’t even resist.

Hope his donors and lobbyist firms got their 30 pieces.

Boehner was put on the throne by the Tea Party with the 2010 election.

They put him there, they can take him down again.

They should.

This vote was near complete repudiation of Boehner by his own party. He’s done and needs to be removed.

Boehner is exhibiting more than weakness; he’s showing outright fear. He has to be compromised. The Dems have something good on him and he’s their puppet.

Whatever it is, the Dems will still use it to finish him off after they have no more use for him.

That’s what lesser evil and “No matter what!” gets America. Lots of freepers and the general public need that fed to them on a cold dish until they get it.

Saving ammunition would imply he’d have to twist arms to get repubs to fight against the Dems on debt. Not only didn’t he do that, the concept itself, if people give it a moments thought, is either farcical or an admission there are a number of GOP that are willfully going to vote Democrat. Otherwise what ‘ammunition’ is needed? The Dems are supposed to be the other team. Not like they will side with Bhoner for anything the right wants.

Hello?

what leverage they have over him.

Ugggh, not again. WHY is there ALWAYS the assumption that a Repub who acts like an anti-conservative is somehow "compromised" or "has a file"????

We need to stop giving excuses for these jerks. Boehner, like all the others, is simply showing his true colors. He does what he does because he IS an anti-conservative, not because someone is blackmailing him.

"I, for one, would love to know who’s pulling Boehner’s strings and what leverage they have over him."

Exactly.

To be honest, the first time I heard people say that Boehner was acting the way he is because Obama and Holder "had something on him", I dismissed it as tin foil hat stuff. The more I see how this administration spies on, and intimidates, all political opponents in an orchestrated manner, the more I wonder if it's really true. (You dig deep enough, and you'll probably find something on any politician- especially with the MSM's help in making a big issue out of whatever it is).

It's one thing to make foolish decisions because you're a fool... it's an entirely different thing to act a certain way out of fear of being exposed. What Boehner has been doing recently does not seem rational- if they really do have smething on him, he needs to be honest and come clean to his party...

This is what happens when you ‘vote for the R’. You get a “Republican” leadership that is indistinguishable from the Democrats.

Ted Cruz got it right (as he almost always does) yesterday when he said the House bill was the same one we’d have seen from a Speaker Pelosi.

Boehner must go, NOW.

Couldn’t agree more. As long as we do ... “if you don’t vote the Dim will win” you get this. It’s been going on for many years now.

Show the GOP our power. Do NOT vote if it is one of the same ol same ol. They WILL get the message.

But, alas, I don’t see so many changing on that. We just keep saying, “please Sir, can I have some more”.

He’s going to lose that anyhow. The Dems will crush him for good measure after he’s of no further use to them and that will be the end of the invitations.

No, just like John Roberts, they have something good on him. Its all part of the DC game.

B) The NSA has found nothing controversial by monitoring him 24/7/365.241 for nearly a decade.
C) The Left wouldn’t muscle someone closely aligned with their goals for the shear joy of muscling them.

Got it.

(Not that he isn’t intrinsically anti-conservative)...

My first reaction was that they have something on Boehner. If what they have is bad enough to account for this treachery, wouldn’t he have been better off just slithering away before now? No, I think as with McCain, Ryan, and a few other jerks who are backstabbing us, they view themselves as dealmakers, and principles don’t mean a damn thing.

What?

I’m saying that every time an R does something anti-conservative, the first thing that seems to be said is “Pelosi has his file” or “he’s hiding something” or some such. IMO that is gives an EXCUSE and cover for a politician. I don’t believe Boehner is being forced into anything. I think he is so blinded by his hatred of conservatives, and the Tea Party, that he (and his fellow travelers) will do whatever they think it takes to destroy them — and if that means the destruction of the GOP and the very country itself, they don’t care.

You’re right, they’re just horse traders who don’t really have any deep seated convictions or principles. The funny thing is they are always trying to compromise with people who won’t compromise.

The only thing I admire about the Dems is that they play to win. And it works well for them.

Boehner has been inside the beltway a long time. I don’t doubt there is a female lobbyist sandwich or other photographed hijinx in his past.

Remember when Reid leaked some of Boehner’s office emails during the Vitter Amendment fight? Boehner did NOTHING. There is one big clue right there.

"Boehner is exhibiting more than weakness; he’s showing outright fear. He has to be compromised."

Of course he is. You can't be a member of the House as long as Boehner has been and not have the Democrats learn something of your character and behavior. Particularly your behavior in private. Boehner probably thinks he has many Democrat "friends" in the House. He going to find out those "friends" can't wait to stick a knife in the backs of him and any other Republican they can.

"don’t believe Boehner is being forced into anything. I think he is so blinded by his hatred of conservatives..."

There is some truth to that. He is also the type of person who can be easily influenced by close confidants (his friend, Rep. Steven LaTourette, convinced him once he became Speaker to attack the Tea Party, and the Chamber of Commerce has been leaning hard on him to push its agenda- amnesty, caving on the debt ceiling, and "pragmatically fixing" Obamacare instead of calling for its outright repeal- these are all the workings of the Chamber- look it up).

Still, I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that the most vindictive administration in history would dig up all they could find on the Republican Speaker of the House...

The one thing every right winger should do is visit porn sites of all ‘types’. Just to have it on NSA file. Then announce they have. Why? To take it off the table as a blackmail issue.

Then when a dem brings it up, laugh in their face and say “What’s the issue, it’s just about sex. We ALL do it!”

I’m quite serious.

Thats why I harp on ridding ourselves of the psuedocons. Here, in real life and in politics. Every time you see a freeper mouthing that stupidity, all it does is keep the lurkers cowed and too skeered to say what they really think. No one likes being mocked and anyone who cares do dig through my and several likeminded freepers here will see the level at which the psuedocons will go to ensure people stay on the GOP plantation.

If Boehner is being squeezed by some powerful and hidden force, he ought to just resign his seat for the good of the nation, instead of doing their bidding.

I honestly don't give a damn what they have on him. If he's compromised, then it's time to go home. Let someone who can't be compromised have the job.

Is is appalling that so many Freepers believe Boehner is being blackmailed or such.

Anyone who has followed Boehner knows clearly that over time Boehner has become a rabid Statist.

Boehner is in it for Beohner.

Boehner is a very evil human being.

Our Republic is being destroyed by an evil out of control President and he stands by and cries.

Boehner wholeheartedly wants 100% amnesty so he can get his lobbying payoff -- no matter that amnesty destroys our Republic as founded

When events compel "We the People" to reestablish true Constitutional governance, may Boehner and the rest of the Statist be shown absolutely no mercy.

Brilliant. Boehner does have a red-hot hatred of the Tea Party.

I ask all Freepers to view videos of Beohner when he attacks the Tea Party -- he is fully alive and revealing his core nature.

To repeat, Boehner is a very evil human being.

It can, I just don't believe any of them being "compromised" is near as likely or frequent as some FReepers seem to think. I agree with Starboard -- power is the thing. The GOP-e hasn't ever really done more than tolerate conservatism. Then came 2008, the Palin attacks, the Romney fiasco, Ted Cruz.... and we all coalesced under the Tea Party. Suddenly lip service wasn't enough and that pissed them off. And it's just been growing exponentially. Anyway, that's JMHO.

I wonder what these guys know something is coming down the road a little ways that is going to overshadow all of this.

In other words, what would make this moot—kind of like the shark attacks all during the summer of ‘01.
