Of course they were going to cave, the ONLY thing the RINO’s care about is keeping their cushy job in D.C., and nothing will ever top that priority.

Once again, we, the producers, bend over and take it again, and their will be no repercussions outside of some occasional howling about tossing out so and so in 2012.

WAAA?

The Rs control the money. Dammit. Why the crap did we work so hard to get a majority in the House? Damn sure not to hear “golly that’s the best we could get”. Horseshot.

Sorry tutstar not directed at you - just venting at the weakness we seem to have elected.

before anyone says “this is just a skirmish”, I disagree vehemently. This is just the precursor to what will happen when we’re not in a “skirmish”... the marxists will lie, the media will spin, and the Rs will say “well we did our best but we didn’t defund obamacare, npr, pp, but we did save 23 hours of debt” and our majority will have gotten nothing of consequence.

Well, there’s always the elections in 2012. If we can take control of the Senate, maybe we can get something done. Until then, shove our positions down the Democrats’ throats. Why should we care about them? They screw us every chance they get. Why take abuse from dummies?

Boehner is a TRAITOR to America. He and his minions just agreed to the Federal government continuing to use our tax dollars to pay the butcher’s bill for sucking babies’ brains into a steel sink. He doesn’t deserve the title “Speaker”. He deserves the title “Obama A** Kisser.”

a separate vote means nothing. It’s symbolic, and Obama will veto it even if it passes the Senate.

Meanwhile most of you continue to (for some reason) to believe these people have your best interest in mind.

Get real. It is over for this country - politics AS USUAL

The best deal they could get? They have the Constitutional authority to DICTATE what money will or won’t be spent, and there’s NOTHING the opposition could do about it!

Carl Cameron on FOX now: 39-40 billion in cuts.

Boehner -- no specifics.. just a brief statement about a bridge agreement and a later vote on the rest of the year. If 39-40 Billion is the best he could do, that's pathetically weak.

“Boehner won”

Yes he did, if you don’t care about the fiscal sanity of this Nation, and you think continuing to fund Obamacare is a good thing. And you think 39B in cuts out of a 3.6T budget will make a difference. Yes, he certainly did win. Congratulations.

And he would have vetoed this CR with it attached, I would guess. The only way to accomplish defunding Planned Parenthood is to remove its patrons from the Senate and White House in 2012.

I guess the Republicans in Washington enjoy all the abuse they get from Democrats and the news media. I’ve heard more stupid, dishonest, outrageous crap during the budget debate from the Democrats than I could even imagine.

If the Republican leadership enjoys taking abuse from the Democrats, I’m hear to tell them that I don’t, a a big chunk of the American public doesn’t, either.

I think that Boehner and the rest of the GOP leadership should rename themselves

THE ACCORDIONS

since they fold so easily and make chintzy music.

I will work to primary Boehner.

Cheers!

Well Bachmann said she would not vote for anything that did not defund Obamacare. We’ll see. The Planned Parenthood angle was just a diversion because the actual health screenings for women were still covered just not by PP.

Boehner caving would not be a surprise to me. We just have to wait and see what they’ve done.

Remove them?

Why?

Who are you putting in their place.

FIND us enough people to make a difference.

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

Isn’t going to happen

I have heard this my whole FREAKIN life.

Well JUST WAIT UNTIL NEXT ELECTION - we will get them!

WHEN is it going to happen? Americans are so stupid. They keep repeating the same mistakes.

WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WILL RUN FOR OFFICE THAT WILL HELP US - CUT THE BUDGET - MAKE REAL CUTS?

WHERE are they.

I am so sick of politicians.

IT NEVER CHANGES - same song and dance - different date.

Boehner is in a tough position. The media would blame him for not paying the military. Hopefully, he is picking his battles. I know John Boehner as a representative (though I am from Ohio, he does NOT represent my district). He’s a good guy. The Freepers who want to pillory him because he doesn’t magically make Democrats act like Conservatives need to get a life. The more rational need to keep pressing for the changes we need. Boehner isn’t deaf to our voices. But, to hear some Freepers, I’m guessing they would rather have Pelosi.

The bawling boozer has no fire in his belly to fight and WIN. He would rather cave in, and protect his turf.

Damn Boehner and all who caved with him.

Get rid of him, and those who follow him.

It was never going to be easy..we knew that. Stay the course and get rid of these rino’s one by one. And replace them with conservatives, one by one. It is a never ending battle..remember Washington lost many a battle of one kind or another...until he won the war.

Prediction for upcoming 2012 budget battle:

Republicans propose 6.2 Trillion cuts in Cantors 2012 budget, democrats counteroffer with 6.2 Million in cuts. Boehner caves and says that's close enough.

The GOP got $40 billion in cuts, which is going to enrage the Left.

And Reid folded on the riders. He will lose the vote in the Senate on both EPA and PP.

Victory. Important for the GOP to gain its legs b4 the debt ceiling debate.

This is hugh
