Boehner on Cunningham show, "We fought the good fight, we just didn't win."
Radio News | 16 Oct 2013 | Jeff Head

Posted on 10/16/2013 12:15:38 PM PDT by Jeff Head

Just heard Boehner say this on the hourly news five minutes ago regarding the Senate compromise.

Hey John, THERE HASN'T BEEN A VOT IN THE HOUSE YET. You are deciding we didn't win when you can still defeat this compromise which gives us NOTHING!

Lead, help...or get the hell out of the way!

If you pass this with the Democrates and a minority of Republicans you need to be out as the GOP leader and Speaker of the House tomorrow.

I wish Boehner would have had the balls to adjourn the House these last few days to allow congress to go back to their districts and hear from the people directly. That may have countered all the media bs.

Looks like Boehner is simply gonna take the vote to the House floor regardless of how many House conservatives oppose it. Updates from Congressional aides are essentially saying the same thing.

At bear minimum, Boehner shouldn't even be holding this vote until Harry Reid holds a senate vote on one of the many house passed bills to repeal Obamacare.

Sure, it would probably fail. And, sure, even if it didn't, the emperor would veto it.

But it would at least put the red state senators on record.

If ‘we’ didn’t win, it means that Obama did win...

Get ready, the immigration train (driven by Obama, Harry Reid, and the GOPe) is headed right at us and we are tied to the tracks.

Actually he can be removed before he decides to ignore the Hastert Rule. When he schedules the vote, a republican caucus can convene to remove him and a new Speaker can table the vote.

He never intended to win. This was all political theater to keep repubs happy. Cruz was just a distraction that they squashed. Repubs will never fight for their base.

Just said the same on another thread.

Make them pass the bills we sent them but no instead the cowards shout defeat even if Reid made the cancer comment and the Dems won’t open Govt.

Make Reid and bozo pass our bills and then we’ll think about what they have, that is a compromise

No kidding. What good does it do millions of Americans to battle hard to win back the Majority in the House only to have DEMOCRAT bills approved!! Does Boehner not remember being shut out of MANY bill discussions under Pelosi?

You are toast, bonehead.

The republican party’s (perhaps) last effort before they sink into the sewage pit will be to kick your sorry Obamahole out in Jan...that is if they survive the November elections.

You and your party is history.

Due to you, you miserable crying drunk piece of excrement.

SO, in order to win, all Obama had to do was not talk to them?

Hey Boner-

Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, the big-league ball players and the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. That’s why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. The very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.

We HATE YOU.

Next time we’ll win, that’s after we get rid of The Weeping Weak-Spined Speaker and some treasonous senators like McCain and Graham and their ilk. Imagine three or four more senators with the political courage of Ted Cruz. We have to beat the entrenched RINOs before beating the Dems.

The ruling Democrat-Republican Party has implemented their “progressive” un-American agenda for the past 100 years. Income tax, New Deal, Great Society, Commie-care, from Wilson to Obama, every step of the way guided by these “two” parties. The coup de grâce will be mass amnesty.

It’s them or us. They must be obliterated or the US will cease to exist.

He never even fought.

They don’t even know the definition of “fight.”

This issue is so serious and real to so many of us that they should have been having screaming matches and fistfights on the floor of the House and Senate on NATIONAL TV.

THAT would be “fighting.”
