John Boehner is scared conservatives are beginning to gain traction on the issue of defunding Obamacare. How do I know?
David Winston is rigging a poll to get some desired results.
Winston is a John Boehner adviser and his preferred pollster. In fact, internally, some Republicans grouse that Beohner uses Winston to direct his lead on issues instead of just . . . well, you know. . . leading.
Check out David Winstons poll question.
In a national survey of 1,000 registered voters done July 31 and August 1, the question, from pollster David Winston, said,
Some members of Congress have proposed shutting down the government as a way to defund the presidents health care law
and asked respondents whether they favored or opposed that plan.
Ted Cruz has not proposed shutting down the government.
Mike Lee has not proposed shutting down the government.
Congressman Meadows has not proposed shutting down the government.
In fact, everyone who supports defunding Obamacare has been very clear that theyll vote for a continuing resolution, just not for Obamacare funding. If the government shuts down over that, it would be Barack Obama insisting his health care plan nobody wants gets funded.
The GOP Leaders have placed themselves in a no-win situation. It is not of conservative doing. They have refused to fight on Obamacare despite rhetoric otherwise and then gone out and pre-emptively spun against themselves any government shutdown.
This is all John Boehners doing. And, like his debt ceiling deal, it will probably blow up in his face.
Obama does not want conservatives to end death panels
You conservatives fight fire with fire and hire a pollster to ask the better questions and use twice the base.
He better be f’in scared!
John, go hide so we can’t find you.
He had better be quaking in his little prancing boots, his sorry rear end needs to be primaried...
he is not the Cowardly Lion, just a run of the mill hack...
We call him Bonehead for good reason
He has been hiding, does nothing is a worthless POS.
Forget about obama care the problem now is amnesty. If Schumer Durban and the backstabbers Graham and McCain get thier way everything is lost so work on that instead
Actually, Boo Hoo has plenty to be scared of if he wanders off the Rino reservation!
I keep wondering if there are NO conservatives/Tea Party Ohioans, in his district, willing to challenge this quisling.
Conservatives can walk and chew gum. Fight both.
When to end medical care should be as it always has been; up to the families of the loved one.
will the bonehead’s tears seep through the tar poured on his head and if so will the feathers soak them up??
My advice to Tammy Fay Boehner - Grow a set... FAST!
Way past time our crying, spray tanned Speaker return to private life.

He truly exemplifies the term
“Country Club Republican”
I'd be happy if he grew one. Half a man is better than none.
If the invaders are not sent home and residence in the US is not controlled, there is no nation left to save. We know the ptb aren't on our side unless we scream loud enough. Where was their outrage about Obama's "Dream Act" maneuver when so many unemployed US citizens need jobs?
There is groundwork being laid on the ground in District 8.
The TOTAL IQ of the senate would not equal the price of a “Happy Meal” They are all wannabe Marxists as far as I am concerned.
And it begs the question what is Boehnor’s motive? I suspect he’s been bought and paid for or otherwise compromised. Or perhaps more realistically his special interests in Ohio are controlling him by virtue of the contracts he steers to them. But I really don’t know why he doesn’t fight.
This is the reason I always say - don’t believe the polls, they are merely for propaganda purposes, not only with their style of questions but the results.
All evil men laughing at those they conned.
Why would he be shaking in his boots? No one will primary him and he will continue on as Speaker as long as Republicans hold the House.
Same as it ever was.
Boehner wont lead, won’t follow and won’t get out of the way.
I don’t see them holding the house for much longer.
The GOP has given me not a single reason to vote for it.
It’s not that he has no balls. It’s that he’s playing for a different team. Democrats and Republicans have their differences in how to govern but they agree 100% on one thing - power needs to be in the hands of a select few.
Boeher plays for the Statists. Look at everything he does through that lens and everything he does makes sense. That’s his motivation.
All by design. They only want conservatives to step down like they did with Newt.
Actions are all that matters. Boeher’s actions show him to be a Statist. Party label is irrelevant. He’s perfectly fine with an ever expanding State as long as he’s in charge of it.
That’s why he doesn’t fight. He’s getting what he wants.
Agreed and me neither.
They want Conservatives to follow their lead - compromise their principles in order to win the elections. If a conservative does not do that, it’ the CONSERVATIVES fault the election is lost.
Boehner wont lead, wont follow and wont get out of the way.
It's not up to him, but us. If he needs a good hard shove, so be it.
Thanks for those pics. Those are the memories I took to the ballot box.
Gee, I can't imagine why people wanted four more of obama instead of four of the new and improved fauxbama.
Exactly. The fearful cowards have no fight in them. They are like liberals and want everything handed to them. Not a drop of patriotic spirit in them which our country was built on. Because we fought, we survived and attained the ‘greatest’ title.
John Boehner is the reason conservatives are gaining momentum.
Fixed That For You.
The problem (on this issue) seems to be a difference of opinion over who gets the blame for a shutdown. The TP believes it would be Obastard and the Rats, while the GOPe thinks it will be the Pubbies. I can’t say the GOPe is wrong about this...the Democrat controlled media has blamed the Republicans every time it’s happened.
Nothing new. The gop wing of the uniparty wants owebamacare just slightly less than the ‘rat wing. It’s all about power and access to all that personal data. Oh, and payoffs for their cronies.
Get ready to welcome owebamacare in a little over a month!
“Conservatives can walk and chew gum. Fight both”
They are spending to much on Obamacare and not enough on amnesty. We can always go back to obamacare.
“he is not the Cowardly Lion, just a run of the mill hack...”
You’re right. The cowardly lion had character and eventually found his courage. No such luck with boehner.
“My advice to Tammy Fay Boehner - Grow a set... FAST!”
He will. The nicest set of man-boobs you ever did see!
“I suspect hes been bought and paid for or otherwise compromised.”
Suspect? That’s kinda like saying you suspect water is wet.
“I dont see them holding the house for much longer. The GOP has given me not a single reason to vote for it.”
Nor do I. I think the “rollover vote” will be immense this next year. “Rollover vote” in the sense that you wake up, realize it’s election day, and rollover and go back to sleep.
2014 is going to be verrrry interesting. The elections to watch right now, though, are in VA. That’ll give you a general sense for the way things are going.
John Boehner is scared conservatives are beginning to gain traction on the issue of defunding Obamacare.
I'll have to agree but can't there be a Tea Party candidate to 1st run in a primary?
