Is John Boehner the Neville Chamberlain of modern American politics??

YES, JOHN BOEHNER IS THE N. Chamberlain of American politics!:

Surrender on The Taxes,

Surrender on The Debt Limit,

Surrender on VAWA,

Surrender on..(Immigration and Guns)??


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: boehner; house; opposition; republicans
I urge all Freepers to change your tag line to this question: 'Is John Boenher the Neville Chamberlain of modern American Politics?'

IF we all do this we may put pressure on leadership. It may help persuade them to dump him, if we make this a pop phrase, then at least it WILL put pressure on John Boehner and the leaders not to drift left.

PLEASE CHANGE YOUR TAG LINE (and then ask others this question as well). "Is John Boehner the Neville Chamberlain of American poltiics?". We may get a grassroots movement going?

What do ya'll say?

I would say he is more Benedict Arnold than Chamberlain. To me he is more a traitor than a surrender monkey.

Wow, I had no idea FR taglines had such power!

I have a better idea, why don’t we all change our taglines to “Send brownsfan money”

And then do it.

No. It's John F'n Kerry.

Boehner is starting to turn the tide with the sequester, and now the budget extension. I hope he has finally getting his footing. He is the only horse we have in the race for the next two years.

Chamberlain was an evil traitor.

Boehner is just an incompetent bumbler.

He's more like the Rodney Dangerfireld of Big League politics.

Neville Chamberlain believed that he had won “peace in our time.”
Crybaby Boner believes everybody takes a little piece of his heart.

Setting aside the fallacies, Boner$/Chamberlain£: same/same. Valid.

Exactly how was Neville Chamberlain a traitor? He signed a Peace Treaty with another country. When that treaty was violated he supported a declaration of War and led Britain for the first eight months of that war.

No they're not.

They need a candidate that represents them.

Romney sure didn't.

He was the only candidate guaranteed to lose against Zero.

No. John Boehner would have to improve significantly to be a “Neville Chamberlain.”
At least Chamberlain, while appeasing Hitler abroad, was building radar sites, Hurricanes, and Spitfires at home. Can’t even give Bonehead that much credit.

Any of those candidates, including Cain, would have done much better than Mr. "Severely Conservative", Mr. finger-in-the-wind, Mr. "I've always been Pro-Life, but I support Abortion in the cases of Incest, Rape, Life, and HEALTH of the mother", Mr. "gays should be in the Boy-Scouts".

Sorry, but Romney didn't represent the base.

When was the last time a candidate that did not represent the base as badly as Romney didn't represent the base of his political party win a national election?

Underneath Boner’s weird facade of pink neckties and public lachrymosity, is a traitor. Vidkun Quisling comes to mind but he wasn’t a wet brained alcoholic with zero courage.

The "base" is something like 40% of the electorate. You can't win an election by just appealing to the base. Whatever Santorum or Bachmann picked up in the base would have been lost among swing voters.

The same goes for Newt -- even people who liked him usually didn't like him. And both he and Herman Cain had lady problems that most likely made them unelectable.

I'm not saying Romney was a great candidate. Maybe he was unelectable from the start. Maybe he botched it along the way. But none of the others was likely to do any better.

He’s only another a Henry Beecher type, working for the man-haters. His kind have been too common for a long time. Can’t trust ‘em. None of them are really conservatives. Their heroines of history were students of Charles Fourier (AKA the first communist). All feminists—female and male—try to control all parties in politics (donations, infiltrations, etc.) and have done so in their most recent effort in America for over three decades.

On the tag line issue, he’s one of many SNAGs (sensitive New Age guys) in politics. They work for a few of the wealthiest “progressive” constituents, who are concerned about overpopulation, the environment, their strange perceptions about animals (animal worship), propagating their family pathologies, etc.

Boehner is scared -- the congressional Republicans from swing districts are scared -- that they'll be characterized as the "Party of No" in a way that will cost them their seats and their majority in the next elections.

Things like that have certainly happened in the past. It's not something any of us has to worry about -- at least it doesn't come very close to home for us. For them it does.

Boehner is not above criticism, but he deserves recognition and approval for his accomplishments. In spite of the defeats of 2012, Boehner maintained GOP control of the House and prevented a political rout after that by avoiding battle in unfavorable circumstances.

Moreover, to the credit of Boehner and his GOP colleagues in Congress, they have leveraged control of the House into a victory on the sequester issue. Not only is a sequester process to limit the growth of federal spending going into effect this year and in coming years, but, on the merits, the public is unpersuaded by Obama's sequester scare tactics and now believes that federal spending must be reined in.

Obama's popularity has been dented and the Democrats are suddenly at a disadvantage on the defining domestic policy issue because the GOP is now seen as the better party to deal with the national economy. In addition, there is unlikely to be a gun bill out of Congress, Obama's expansive second term agenda is toast, and the GOP is poised to make incremental gains on other issues.

Democratic retirements and the salience of conservative issues are boosting GOP prospects in the 2014 Congressional elections. Obama is beginning to look like a lame duck, and, if the GOP wins big in 2014, Obamacare will be in jeopardy and the election of a conservative Republican President in 2016 will be plausible.

You do make a good rebuttal, let’s just hope that your prediction holds true..(of course all bets are off if the GOP caves on its basic principles including gay marriage, immigration or gun controll).

The GOP cannot cave on those issues because of the risk of Tea Party insurgencies and the nature of the US House, which makes a relatively small set of GOP members able to block innovations in policy.

He is far stupider than N. Chamberlain , He is right there in the midst of his enemies camp and yet he cannot see their methods and plans despite those same plans being implemented time after time... Neville had just endured an unbelievably bloody world war and had somewhat believable assurances , it was inconceivable in the late 1930’s that anyone would want a second world war and a military buildup could be explained as defensive posturing to avert war.
