Posted on 06/18/2013 10:40:54 AM PDT by Olog-hai
John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he might lose his job as House speaker over immigration reform, but he insisted he will not bring a bill to the House floor that does not have majority support of both Republicans and Democrats.
Following the Republican conference meeting on Tuesday, Boehner was asked: Rep. Rohrabacher said that if you bring immigration reform to the floor without the support of the GOP conference you will lose your job (as speaker). Do you think thats accurate?
Maybe, Boehner said after a long pause, to laughter from reporters.

If I were a Republican in the House, I would turn my back on this bastard every time he addressed the group.
In fact, I’d let him get through the first half of his first sentence, stand up and walk out.
Ya but... Who’s gonna replace this bawl baby and what can we expect from the replacement???
He’ll lose it the next election anyway so what’s the damn difference? If he and the rest of the GOP brain(less)trust insist on giving the Dems a permanent majority, they deserve to lose.
It’s enough to make a grown man cry.
Boner must have run out of knee pads, ya think?
I heard Eric Cantor considers himself next in line and wants it. Chip off the old block except he doesn’t cry in public - not yet anyway.
I pray to GOD that you do lose your Speakership john... you are not a moral or truthful man... you deceive and therefore you are not an honorable man and deserve to lose your Speakership and your seat..
Tammy Faye Boehner, my house representative from SW Ohio.
200 dems and 18 RINO's would meet that definition in DC.
Well, lets just hope Denny Hastert is out of phone range.
I’m not sure who we get. Would it better or worse? I honestly don’t know.
I would like to think there is a guy in there that wouldn’t rubber-stamp Democrat policy, but I don’t know for sure.
He will not - until 2014. For now, the ‘Rats will supply whatever votes he needs to make up GOP defectons from his camp. Come 2014, because of the total disillusioning of the GOP base, the GOP will be crushed and Boehner can shed a tear as he hands the gavel back to Nazi Pelosi.
Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..
FR’s ;This Wednesday June 19th a Anti Amnesty Rally will be held on the Capitol grounds. Participants are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings Michelle Bachmann announced over the Rusty Humphries show
If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.
ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AMERICAN CITIZENS AND SKILLED LABOR FROM OTHER NATIONS
In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. Theres a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.
SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hypenated Americans trap created by the hypenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS
The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. Theyre permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country dont get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.
Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.
ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?
We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). Its displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. Were courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.
MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?
Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. Theyll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesnt apply to a citizen of Mexico.
By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally were offering no incentive for assimilation and were not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.
ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS..
Boner needs to go. We have laws on the books, and the INS-ICE to deal with immigration. The GOP-DNC and their business interests want an open border and access to a cheap source of illegal revenue. The feds have become the gun runners and drug traffickers for the mexican cartels, and any US official who endorses this “immigration reform” are no better that the lowest pimps, drug dealers, or common thugs and gangsters. When We the People lose faith in our government, it is time to replace our goverment those who will abide by our Constitution.
I would like to know more about Ted Yoho from florida, he seems to have a conservative heart, and is too new to be tainted by big money.
I'm sticking with what I've posted a few times before. The main reason so many Republicans are now supporting illegal alien amnesty is that they are tired of fighting the issue. They are cowards and just want to get rid of the issue so they won't have to fight the Dims and the MSM and the ethnic groups and all the rest any longer.
That's about what Boner is saying above.
Just throw in the towel and things will be so much easier for them the next few years, but they give little thought to the longer range effects of a massive amnesty.
gee he’s really setting the bar high. he wants majorities of republicans AND democrats to support the bill. those democrats are going to be a tough sell.
boner, good rule of thumb, if democrats are salivating to vote on a particular bill, it may not be a good one to bring up for a vote, much less desire most republicans to want to vote for.
just’proves boner’s in on it. he’s not stupid, he’s in on it.
the issue keeps returning. has been since 1986. we were’told’that was the last time then too.
“If I were a Republican in the House, I would turn my back on this bastard every time he addressed the group.”
The only problem with that is when extending one’s middle finger from that position, it’s hard to make sure that Bonehead would see it.
Bonehead is slime second only to the Obamadork.
Flush twice, the toilet has a lot of work to do.
Rule #2 is (in reality) be careful what you wish for unless you've PREVIOUSLY arranged for adequate, or improved alternatives.
Rule #3 is (always) dance with the one(s) that brung you to the danged dance!!!
