By defeating the Speaker tonight, the GOP delegation in the House gave him the blank check to cut lousy deals with the lousiest President of all times that will pass with Democratic votes. Mark this day. It leads to Democratic control of the House in 2014 at worst or significantly reduced (bare) majority for the GOP.
This is the most suicidal political outcome I have ever seen. Good luck!
Likely there are very few votes to win. We'll see what happens.
The stupid party ought to just hand Nazi Poopsi the hammer back right now.
The GOP is the Scottish nobles from Braveheart. They are last people you want to go to battle with at your back.
It would be nice to know what actually happened, since the news is still coming-in. But at first glance, it does seem that it leaves blood in the water for Obama and his minion.
Boehner should not have put out Plan B in the first place-since Republicans had a mandate not to raise taxes on anyone-not even millionaires.
Therefore, the congressmen who listened to their constituents are not wrong-Boehner tried to ignore them, fire them from committees, etc, and his strong-arming didn’t work. The Republicans need to find out the people are serious about getting back a conservative country.
I am confused.
If boner can’t get this deal through the house, tell me how he is going to get the lousy deals you envision through the house?
I don’t get it. Most here wanted the fiscal cliff, and we are now one step closer to it. Why are so many wetting their pants over this? Like I said, I don’t get it.
Two years is a long way away. Who knows what will be happening between then and now. I predict Iran will have the bomb. I predict the deficit will be about 1500 billion a year. I predict that gold and silver will be a lot higher per ounce. I predict that there will be a serious third party forming.
He tried the strongarm routine & it backfired.
With Democrat votes. Duh!!
So earlier we were supposed to oppose Plan B because it raised taxes and had no clear spending cuts.
Now we are supposed to be angry because we killed it?
I’m confused. Can someone make a banner of what we are supposed to think about something and keep it up to date?
Don't be such a fatalist. A lot can still happen.
Boehner may not keep his Speakership if this continues.
Then they said we were supposed to support it because it lowered taxes.
He'll just co-sign the executive orders.
Louie Gohmert for Speaker of the House
We need a speaker that actually speaks for us.
It was a vote of no confidence on bonehead and thugs .
He needs to resign .
I suspect his stupid comment about the 2nd amendment review
Pissed off a lot of Voters and the offices were flooded with calls about The k street bagman .
He needs to leave now !
I realize you wrote that in jest, but like so many jests, it may have hit on the truth.
Nothing he does would surprise me.
Now about executive orders.
I suppose that he could use an executive order to extend an existing law, which of course we would like.
But I doubt if the court would uphold the creation of any new tax law, which any increase in any tax would be, by executive order.
Yeah. A more conservative speaker will emerge and take on President Obama. Get the public on his side. Turn the public against the President. Oh yeah. All that will happen. Surely it must!
