Boehner must go
WND ^ | December 09, 2012 | Joseph Farah

Exclusive: Joseph Farah declares GOP leader 'a total failure as speaker of the House'

It’s not possible for Republicans to dump Barack Obama in the next four years.

They have blown their opportunity to do that.

But the next best thing they can do right now is to dump John Boehner as speaker of the House.

Though Boehner has been portrayed in the media as some kind of hardliner who is intransigent and unwilling to compromise, the truth is that he is the opposite. He is an appeaser. He is an enabler. He is an accommodationist.

Boehner began waving the white flag of surrender to Obama soon after Republicans made him speaker in 2011. Since all spending bills need to originate in the House and because the Republican majority in the House has had absolute power to freeze spending, Boehner was dealt a powerful hand to keep Obama in check. Instead, he folded. Not only did he fold repeatedly, he even signaled before negotiations about spending ever began that he intended to fold.

He has repeatedly dismissed the idea that freezing the debt limit was a political option. That’s like unilaterally disarming before one’s enemies.

But it gets worse.

So determined is Boehner to raise taxes as part of a deal to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff,” he recently purged from chairmanships every conservative Republican who took a harder line than he did over the last two years.

Boehner is not part of the solution. He’s part of the problem – a big part of it.

With people like John Boehner running the House and Mitch McConnell running the Republican minority in the Senate, we really don’t have a two-party system at work. The checks and balances have been thrown out the window. It’s no wonder that a good, honest

I second the motion. McConnell needs to go as well.

Well, yeah, but he knows how to sit up, beg, and roll over and play dead. You've got to admit he's a cute little lap dog. Isn't the Republican party's purpose to entertain representatives of the Democratic [sic] party?

Anybody want to bet the rest of the dork Republicans will return him to the Speakers Chair in January?

I would bet the farm if the new Estate taxes would leave me with it, but they won’t.

It is possible to hamstring him financially in the HOR and keep bringing up a new article of impeachment every darn day if necessary to keep Obama playing defense. Lord knows there are enough charges that can be brought even though none of them will pass the Senate. As the old tactical saying went, "Baffle him with Bull Sheite".

I would agree, except for one thing. Boehner doesn’t even get in the ring, before he tosses in the towel.

He’s scoring defeat after defeat, and he doesn’t have a mark on him.

The graphic implies he’s been bested by a very capable guy. The fact is, Boehner has tossed in the towel against a wimp, over and over. It’s embarrassing!

Boehner is garbage but he will keep his position as he is for the status quo. Cause all them gumbas’ are making lots of money and not one of them gives a tinkers damn about any of us.

“Anybody want to bet the rest of the dork Republicans will return him to the Speakers Chair in January?”

I asked that question on another thread on this subject and someone answered that the election was held in November and he is already in for another term.

I don’t know if it is true or not, but I wouldn’t doubt it. The Rinos seem to have a marvelous system of self preservation.

I think nearly everyone who is a CONSERVATIVE agrees that BOTH Bonehead and McConnell need to go.

Will someone please tell me HOW to get them OFF the stage sooner rather than later?

Boehner renominated for House speaker (Nov. 14, 2012)

He will be formally elected by a vote in the House of Representatives when the 113th Congress convenes in January.

I see you and I view his signaling the same way.

Boehner essentially firing Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp from
the House Ag Committee is an absolute outrage. Huelskamp
is a fifth generation farmer/rancher who stated that subsidies, i.e. direct and counter-cyclical payments were
not going to be re-instated in the new farm bill. Here is
a man, Huelskamp, who is a principled enough conservative
that he was willing to literally take money away from himself because he thought it was best for America.

“He will be formally elected by a vote in the House of Representatives when the 113th Congress convenes in January.”

Does this mean if we could find enough Republicans with “attachments” he could still be kicked out?

Boy would that be a great after Christmas present.

He should have never got Speaker and now we wont get rid of him till he loses the House. We are stuck. No one will challenge him because they dont want that job.

Why shouldn’t they? Who else do they have to vote for? No one is stepping up to run against him. I am beyond blaming Boehner. He is a RINO doing what RINOs do and there is no changing this turd. I blame conservative House members who are too cowardly to run against him. Eqyptians in the streets are braver. Were the hell is Paul Ryan? Even he is supporting boner. Is there one brave man who will step up?

I am much of your opinion. I have no use for any of them.

I pretty much feel the same way about the Democrats who back Obama in all of his BS.They are as bad as he is, maybe worse.

I have no faith in the US Government as it stands today.Not in any of it’s 3 branch’s.

What the Republicans must do.

Since Mr. Obama insists that “Everyone needs to share” I suggest the following.

1. 5% reduction in all federal wages and pensions, except Law Enforcement Personnel and Military. This includes the Senate, Congress and the President.
2. 5% reduction on Welfare payments and restrict the use of the payments to food, clothing and housing. No more for alcohol, tobacco or cash.
3. Move DEA and ATF under the supervision of the FBI and fire all ATF supervisors connected with Fast and Furious.
4. Stop all program funding that does not relate to the safety, health and welfare of the citizens of the United States. No more Big Bird, Democracy Now, or department of education. Privatize PBS and let education go back to pre-Carter times. We have been going downhill ever since.
5. A one year moratorium on foreign aid and no gifts from the President to other countries or groups. I do not know where he received that power since Congress is supposed to control spending.

If all the above is done then you should not need to raise the income tax.

The people who are paying the bills are tired of being blamed for the problem. It’s the Spending Stupid. If they keep the path that they are on now, they will be irrelevant. The country does not need a “Democrat Light” party.
