He knows better but believes we’re all stupid enough to buy into dim bulb scare tactics.

He’s trying hard, but he’s delusional if he thinks he can bring down Sen. Cruz.

I wasn’t aware the senate could pass anything without the house approving it THEY HAVE THE PURSE!! Am I missing something here!

Barack Hussein Obama's history and John Boehner's history of letting him get away with such unconstitutional moves.

If Obama refuses to make those debt payments on time then he and Lew need to be fired and have someone else take the checkbook.

I said “perhaps”.

Boehner has protected the RINOs from casting votes on Harry’s “clean” CR.
They owe him big time, Very big time.

He could save his Speakership and Mitch’s re-election (and the country) by calling in his markers in exchange for them voting down Harry’s bill.

Or not... It is hard to imagine Mitch and John doing the smart thing.

“Dim mantra...talking points”

He spouts their mantra as if he’s one of them. Hmmm, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that he personally hands out the dim talking points sheet.

I know this for sure and certain, we’re in his way. He despises us and all those who represent us.

“There will be NO default on government debt backed by interest bearing instruments. There is more than enough tax revenue to cover those payments. The only way a default could happen on those debt payments is if the Treasury IGNORED/REFUSED to pay them. Now on obligations/promises made by the government not backed by any of those previously mentioned ‘instruments’ there can’t be any ‘default’ in the financial sense, only broken promises. Promises/obligations which mathematically were/are impossible to keep over time anyway. Better to face now the reality and the economic pain that must come rather than MUCH greater pain later.”

lol....you either went to private schools or went to the public schools when they actually taught something other than diversity and homosexuality. and your parents must have told the school nurse to go to hell when she said your a little hyper and I want to put him on Ritalin.

Let's say both Reid and McConnell are out. Then who will step up and take their place? Probably someone much worse.

Say, Schumer at the Rats side, and McCain on the GOP sellout side. I remembered when Dashole was voted out and thinking there was no way they could find someone worse then him to be the majority speaker for the Rats. I was wrong........

Simple short term solution:

The House should pass a clean CR and debt ceiling increase with 2 exceptions:
- Obamacare is the law of the land for ALL....including Obama and Congress....no Executive orders for ANYONE allowed. It’s the law. Make them take a vote in full sunlight.
- And the extension is only for 90 days....shed light on their lie to want to negotiate. Pass a budget Congress.

If I were Boehner, I would race to the microphones and say the Republican House has passed another resolution to solve the immediate crisis and give Obama everything he wants....only he and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have to agree to being participants in Obamacare. The 90 day extension is just that...a short reprieve; to allow Democrats to put their money where their mouth is regarding spending limit negotiations.

I am betting Mitch Mconnell will NOT run for reelection...he knows he will get creamed at the voting booth...and will drop out at last moment.

the people of Kentucky will not return him to Washington, he is a disaster.

You would be wrong there pal. I'm in McConnell's State and he's running ads here almost non-stop insisting he's the ONLY conservative in the race and that Bevin is some kind of evil human being. That and the local news says he has acquired 7 Million more dollars in recent days to run ads here. Where the hell does he get that money? Oh yeah, Tokyo Rove and that same Consultant Cabal in D.C.

Plus, the local folk here might have Conservative leanings, but in the end, money talks and everything else walks. KY may yet return his sorry ass to D.C. if for nothing more than the pork he brings back here for the Ruling Class in Lexington and Frankfort to empower themselves locally.

Remember, this is the state that elected for Obama crony Beshear TWICE.

Kc, You are correct that the House holds the purse and may “propose” budget items to pay, but the proposals must pass in the Senate and be veto proof (from the prez) and which requires 60 votes.

Boehner can’t get House proposals passed, thus the Senate majority is colluding with RINO’s to pass something. If they come up with something nefarious they will send it to the House.

It is thought that the House Democrats together with RINO Boehner, Cantor and company will be enough to pass over the heads of the conservatives in the House.

Zero would and will veto anything, at all, that isn't 100 percent what he wants. But he will instead not get anything, and if he spends money without the Congress' (specifically, the House), he'll be engaged in (additional) impeachable offenses.

So who with the ability is actually going through the motions to impeach him?
