Mark Levin Rips Boehner: Who The Hell Does He Think He Is? (audio)
RealClearPolitics ^ | December 4, 2012 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 12/04/2012 6:00:39 PM PST by i88schwartz

Mark Levin opines on reports that House Speaker John Boehner is punishing conservative members of his caucus for not following the party line.

MARK LEVIN: I've had enough of this crap. This is a member of Congress being treated like crap by the Speaker of the House. Who the hell does the Speaker of the House think he is? This man was elected by his constituents, American citizens in his Congressional district. He's voting the way he pledged to vote to the constituents in his district. Who the hell does John Boehner think he is? He's so desperate for these four votes that he punishes these men like this? Pelosi does this stuff, the old Soviet Union did this stuff.

This man Boehner, his ego is massive. His ego is way out of control. He used his role, ladies and gentlemen, to crush the Tea Party, to crush conservatives. He is selling out our children right now with these massive tax increases, and that's his starting bid. He's saying, 'Here's $800 billion, now will you sit down with us Obama?' He's prepared to go to $1.2 trillion, I'm telling you he is. They buy into this class warfare crap. You want to know why? Because he's not smart enough to argue against it, and moreover he's unprincipled. I explained that in my first segment monologue.

This guy didn't become Speaker because he's some kind of great thinker or philosopher or principled or anything else. He's not Newt Gingrich, he's John Boehner. He was a backbencher. He's clawed his way to the top. And now what is he trying to do? Is control any possible opposition, even if a guy votes 95% of the time on the House Budget Committee with the majority.

We need a separate campaign to dump Boehner complete with opposition research.

I wanted to do it this election, but there wasn’t any traction. We need to get a real campaign going to dump him.

Much larger than his concern for our Liberty.

One of the systemic problems with Congress (both chambers) is that the outgoing Congress gets to vote for the leadership of the new incoming Congress. The new people that we vote in don't get to participate in the vote for their own leadership.

Usually, we say that future Congresses are not bound by the votes of prior Congresses, apparently except for the votes on future leadership positions. For some reason, the parties hold their leadership votes during the lame duck session, and not after the new Congress convenes.

I should have clarified that I meant a campaign to unseat Boehner as Speaker. His own House seat is beyond safe. I believe he ran unopposed and there is no chance at all unless he is booted from the Speakership.

He won’t be voted out of his leadership. That does not mean he can’t be
scandaled out of leadership. A moron this dumb can’t be squeaky clean.
He’s been in DC 20 years. He’s got to have some bones in his closet.
Time to uncover them and scandal his a$$ out of leadership.

Time to get our GOP reps to not vote for Boehner before the new Congress convenes in January

If that does not do it....then sit out the vote for Speaker. If enough GOP abstain from voting....Pelosi gets the Speaker...which is not much different than Boehner as Speaker. The GOP still has enough of an advantage to kill any nutty Dem bills....and it will de-nut Boehner

The GOP needs to pull its head out of its arse and get with the Conservative program. 2014 is going to be a rough year for many of them

How can that be done? I don’t know the process for getting a “vote of (no) confidence” - Fraud & Traitor seem to fit Boehner & Cantor. Why are they helping the Dems trash America? Surely, they don’t think we believe they are actually trying to save the country, do they???

Nothing in the Constitution requires the Speaker to be a member of Congress. Mark Levin for Speaker of the House. We need a drill seargent to run the place.

You know, it would sure be nice if Rush could help Mark with this just a bit. Rush makes feeble attempts at be critical of Boehner. Mark calls a spade a spade.

Come on Rush, quit leaving all of the heavy lifting to Levin!

John Boehner is squeaky clean. He doesn't even take earmarks.

This is one of the reasons of the House caucus backs him.

He had no opposition in 2012. He previously received 66% of the vote, which was his worst showing in 20 years. The district borders Indiana:

"Because he's not smart enough to argue against it, and moreover he's unprincipled."
That says it all.

When you don't stand for anything, you have nothing to fall back on when times get tough. All the GOP-e cares about is getting re-elected; as such, they're slaves to the consultants/focus groups, most of whom are left-of-center.

Without core beliefs, it's impossible to win negotiations....you have no starting point.

“And you have just nailed the reason why I never miss Mark and don’t make a huge effort to listen to Rush.”
__________________________________________

I really like Rush, and know this is pi$$ing him off, but for some reason he just won't go after this guy with any real heart. He sometimes uses the excuse of: “I'm not going to do the GOPs work for them...yada...yada” Well guess what Rush, this is why you get paid out the A$$ for what you do.

I really hope Levin is taking Rush to the wood shed for his pansy a$$ treatment of Boehner! This half-hearted B.S. is getting old!

He's been through reams of elections where they never come up with anything personal on him and rose all the way to the top of the House with even more scrutiny.

House members also respect the way he chased McDermott through the courts for years and prevailed. (They consider him slow and steady).

And the earmark thing has always carried a lot of weight on the right...Boehner does not take any and as far as I know has never taken any.

Who does Boehner think he is? Maybe he thinks he is Nancy Pelosi.

But she is a lot tougher than Boehner will ever be.

Compared to Pelosi, Boehner is a sissy.

Answer: Sobber of the House Boehner is the Leader of the House RINOs.

BTW, have you forgotten the RINO’s Motto? Here it is: “Cave-In when any Democrat tells you to, and ALWAYS lose at all costs.”

Ok. So what kind of deal do u think The Speaker should cut with Obama,
since he is pure as the driven snow and won’t be removed by scandal?
And the GOP likes him because he is slow and steady.

[ I read that Boehner won his district by 99% of the vote. ]

If true then Boehner won with the same voter fraud Obama won by..
Voter fraud may decide primary campaigns as well.. both parties..

Could be the Coup D’Etat happened a good while ago..
Not that republicans will admit it..

The real scope of the fraud not being discovered YET...
Both parties seem to be totally controlled..

Only way to really WIN is to form another party..
And even that is chancy 3rd parties are severally disadvantaged.. in many ways..

Looks like parties have become OBSOLETE to conservatives..
WHats needed is an “under-ground resistance”...
Not Gorilla Warfare BUT Neanderthal Warfare.. the Homo Sapiens are too GAY..

First step is to STAMPEDE.... a sheep stampede..
Any republican that does not know they are a sheep is delusional..

STAMPEDing is the first step.. run right over the Wolves.. even the Dogs that think they are Wolves but aren’t..

Stampede to WHERE?... Who cares? makes little difference..
Here there everywhere.... confuse the Wolves.. first step..
GOREing them with your horns comes later..

Dividing the RAMS from the Ewes comes next..
Too many Rams think they are Ewes.. the lambs have all been EATEN..
NOT pissing the Wolves off, BUT pissing the RAMS off is prudent..
