Skip to comments.Boehner Tells House G.O.P. to Fall in Line

WASHINGTON On a conference call with House Republicans a day after the partys electoral battering last week, Speaker John A. Boehner dished out some bitter medicine, and for the first time in the 112th Congress, most members took their dose.
Their party lost, badly, Mr. Boehner said, and while Republicans would still control the House and would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases as Congress grapples with the impending fiscal battle, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked so much of the last two years.
Members on the call, subdued and dark, murmured words of support even a few who had been a thorn in the speakers side for much of this Congress.
It was a striking contrast to a similar call last year, when Mr. Boehner tried to persuade members to compromise with Democrats on a deal to extend a temporary cut in payroll taxes, only to have them loudly revolt.

Boehner must go before more damage is done... http://fb.me/2heUb6txy
The Weeper of The House has jumped the congressional shark.
Oooh. NYTimes propaganda!
Let’s post it over and over!
How ‘bout the pansy RINO Boehner taking a fall? Boot his sorry bony butt right out of office. Meanwhile, replace him with a person who has the requisite courage for the office. This guy could be taken on by a baby bunny rabbit.
When is he up for reelection as Speaker? Early January I would think?
Time to give him more free time to smoke his Marlboros (or whatever )
If I recall, it wasn’t too long ago that the senate majority leader (?)[speak not his name] said that if Romney were to win, there was no chance of little hairy reed working with him. Of course now that the show is over, if the house won’t work with the prez there’s always those pesky executive orders. Go Levin!!!!!
Thanks to all my fellow vets out there today. Past, present and future.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
The overthrow is complete
His symbol should be that sheep that gets paralyzed whenever it hears a loud noise.
F this clown and SHUT it DOWN! Let Obama do EVERYTHING BY EO and then drop it on the RATS head in 14 and 16.
When can we get rid of Boehner?
Boehner is a disgrace. His replacement as speaker is long overdue.
Crawl back under the sun lamp, Bonehead.
Or we will do to you what we did to West.
I miss Tom DeLay.
(For some reason I can't make a link).
I am not sure when he is up for reelection. Will try to find out.
IF the House stood firm and refused to go along with nobama AND the Prez went around with EO’s AND gets away with it, then we no longer have a Constitutional Representative Rebublic Government, rather a dictatorship. This and/or punishment of the Red States will gen up the “official” requests for peaceful secession, which could force nobama to give in and give up his Musilini impersonation (he does have a record of capitulating when threatened with greater force, just never been tested on this grand a scale before).
I loath RINOs more than liberals. Liberals have no shame promoting tax increases, restricting liberty, promoting perversion and infanticide, hating traditional American values, and on and on. RINOs have no core beliefs worth fighting for, and reject and excoriate us conservative patriots who do. How I long for those in the GOP who would pledge their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor on behalf of our nation.
Time for a change...
