Boehner should have been primaried out of there earlier this year, as a message to the rest.

Please point out to me where I equated Stalln and Boehner.

Before calling anybody crazy, you best remove the loco-gleam in your own eyes.

If it walks like a duck.....

It's the only explanation for the total inaction on the GOP's part. It also explains why Boehner just garroted the conservatism and why Allen West was redistricted to oblivion.

Asking again either because you don’t want to answer or you CAN’T: How many times has Boehner completely caved to Obama?

Boehner is preparing for life as a lobbyist. He won’t run for re-election after he goes through with his special deal with Obama.

No, I don't even know what TBL is. Thanks for the photo, it makes me want to cry. Yes, anyone who would liken Boehner to Stalin is an extremist and not to be taken seriously.

I remember exactly where I was the moment I heard that Stalin died. I knew the horrors of Communism, I knew the horror of Stalin even though I was thousands of miles away. I do not take this accusation of Boehner being like Stalin lightly. Someone owes Boehner a huge apology but it will never come.

West was both redistricted and vote frauded out.
A deal has been made, that is obvious.

Boehner does not vote on most tthngs - brave stance there. But he DID vote to raise the debt ceiling and he also voted for the balanced budget amendment.

So - he drags his sorry behind to the voting machine to cast a vote to balance the budget and another one to allow the government to borrow more money to...wait for it...it’s coming...SPEND!!!

Now - what votes of the outcasts are you so twitterpated about???

I didn’t post the photo.

Check again.

“Someone owes Boehner a huge apology but it will never come.”

Boehner will cave to Obama yet again because that is all he does.
He needs to apologize to us and then he can go to hell with the rest of the Rino squishes.
He does not deserve an apology at all.

GilesB answered your question as to why Stalin was mentioend.
Any thoughts on that?
Or are you just going to keep excusing Rino Boehner and calling us extremists?

Former Minnesota Gov.(and a bit of a nutjob)Jesse “The Body”Ventura once said there was little difference between politicians and pro wrestlers in the fact that while the camera is on ,they put on a show and pretend to be at odds,meanwhile behind the scenes they are all buds and compliment each other on a good performance.Much like WWE who is a babyface and who is a heel is determined by the people and a little script tweaking..I tend to think he is on the mark here..Million dollar question is who is the Vince McMahon character planning and pulling all the strings in the political process?Soros?

Boner is the wimp that backed down the last time there was a crisis over the debt limit. When is he going to man up and stare Obama down? Boner just proves that Democrats play hard ball and Republicans have no balls at all.

What has he ever done right?

” He may deserve some criticism when this is over but not now and not over the removal of these members.”

He only removed conservatives.

Exactly right. Conservatives need to stop fighting over the election and over things we can't change. There needs to be a major push against the status quo and a clear message. The TEA party had their attention with the DC rallies but after 2010 and the TEA party's backdown, the beltway elite stopped paying attention again. It's seriously time to send them packing and start over with fresh conservatives. These politicians are not representatives of the people, they instead fancy themselves our rulers. That needs to change and they need to go!

” Ask yourself why the Republicans never used any of the ammunition Obama gave them, against him. There was a treasure trove of sound bites, executive orders and crony capitalism that could have been aired with proof positive of its truth and not an iota of it was used.”

Exactly.

Am I the only person who thinks we should just let the Bush tax cuts expire, let taxes go up on everyone, reduce spending in defense and entitlements... in short let Obama have what he wants...under the assessment that there is an impasse, and let the democrats, but mostly Obama have this clearly his budget.

In short, walk away. If the man is not going to negotiate, then forget it. Pass what you need to pass, and the Senate accepts it or it doesn’t and move the hell on.

Either way, this economy and our international situation is going to get worse. So why hitch the republicans to this?

This is a failed presidency that will fail even more in the coming months. I think the democrats orchestrated the economy collapse under Bush, let’s do the same to Obama.

I'm holding out judgment on that part and that is not what I am addressing now. Boehner is taking heat over something that he may have been perfectly justified in doing but I see such a mob mentality here now on FR no one is willing to give the benefit of the doubt and not even willing to wait for facts.

To equate Boehner with Stalin is unconscionable and Boehner is owed a great big apology.

I want the exact same outcome to these negotiations as you but I have no idea how to get what we want and I don't even know if it's possible.

I am of the belief that Obama and the RATs smell blood in the water and they do not care one twit about their country. They only care about their own power and they see a way to destroy the Republican party. They know they have the press on their side. As long as Boehner and Co. understand that Obama does not want a solution, they'll have to figure out how to get the best deal possible.

I have no idea what he should do. I know I would never give Obama everything he wants because there will be no end to it. It looks to me like Boehner is the only one putting forth a possible solution, just to be shot down each time. I doubt the public will see that though because the press still tells it like the Republicans are being obstructionists to Obama's solutions. (Lies, of course).

or allows sequestration so that Obama owns the tax hike, I will personally apologize to you.

I don't want an apology and don't even expect one. All I want is to have all of us understand the dire situation we are in right now. We must pray for the best possible outcome. I fear Obama and RATS for more than I fear anyone on my side.

I want a way to beat Obama and the RATS back into the stone age but Republicans only have the House. The RATS have the Senate, the presidency and the MSM. Our side is so fractured, we cannot even all agree on who is the greater enemy. We are in disarray and I see no hope of it improving.

So grandma, what exactly did YOUR investigation of the voting records of these conservative “flakes” (as you so gently defined them) reveal? Did your investigation reveal them to be commies? ...or Nazis? ...or Pediphiles? or part of some conspiracy to destroy the Republican party?

I’m not seeking anyone’s approval—I want the truth; and you seem to think you know the truth. Please share with us “the truth”.

“Stalin terrorized and killed millions!!”

What do you think the effect of Obamacare will be? What is different besides the method?

Taxpayer-funded abortion, death panels, ill and elderly shoved out the hospital door rather than receive life-saving treatment...

In time, Obamacare will also terrorize and kill millions.

Where is the effective opposition from the Republicans? It’s gotten to the point that those who don’t stand against Obama are as guilty as those who stand with him.

Since you are so upset over this maybe you could enlighten all us rabid lemmings about the voting records of the purged. From what I’ve read it came down to just a few votes on fiscal issues where the purged actually took a conservative stand. One of them had voted 95% with the speaker and that wasn’t enough.

thanks for telling fellow freepers to get to know the facts first before jumping on the bandwagon and comparing someone o Joseph Stalin. has john Boehner in comparison to Joseph Stalin
1. made a treaty with Adolf Hitler and later be attacked by Hitler
2. lead a communist nation in a war
3. maintain POWs in confinement well after the war was over as late as 1951.
4. kill millions of citizens in regards to political differences.

Boehner may or may not have compromised. But to say he is like Stalin is way way over the top.

i am a conservative, but I do think for myself.

“I’m holding out judgment...”

Just a little “heads up”...I am counting 40 Repub defectors to the Dems reference the “fiscal cliff”. Obozo leaves the Dec. 17, for a 21 day vacation. We will have our answers very soon.

Boehner was making a power grab and looking for complete obedience to what is in the works.

I am glad this is happening. We are now going to see what our Congress is really composed of...no more deception. We have had some bitter pills to swallow lately. But, it is time for the truth.

Don’t be alarmed at people’s reactions. These are pretty desperate times and everyone is just trying to cope.

Best Wishes,
BoL
