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.
he never wins
He’s preparing the American people for the big cave.
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.
You are cowards and you quit. Shame on you and the stupid Republicans.
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.
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.
Fought the good fight? WTH?
Once again proving, you can fool Republicans ALL TIME, EVERY TIME.
> “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.”
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.
no Boner, you surrendered to the news media
come on johnny, show us the vote, please.
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
That’s because YOU, Boehner, are a LOSER!
The Constitution didn’t win.
Now, on to passing amnesty.
Boner goes limp, film at 11.
Is there any chance that Boner will lose his speakership?
maybe he can count
What happened to spending bills originating in the house?
Boner: “I like my Health Care and get to keep it”.
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.
When did he actually do any fighting?
SO, in order to win, all Obama had to do was not talk to them?
Beaner: “We handled that. Now, on to amnesty for 30 million Mexicans.”
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.
BIG, BIG BUMP on that!
In Obama's dreams. Marry it to Obamacare, and add the cost to the sticker shock that's already hitting Joe Six-Pack.
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.
Boehner NEVER had any intention of winning. He is a weaseling POS.
Boehner is Obama’s point-man.
What is the best tea party group to be a card carrying , money giving member of? Are they all under one name? I prefer a God and country group.
Exactly and they will cave on that too.
Boner the Ball-less is just so relieved that all of this is over—He didn’t expect “leadership” to be this difficult.
He might as well as lose his position as Speaker of the House, because he and the Republican Party are now as useless as teats on a boar.
Hell No: He won’t lose it.
Who else would have it?
We have an idiot in it because no one else is stupid enough to take it.
Who wants to lead a pack of cowards?
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.”
Now on to amnesty for foreign nationals who have violated our laws...
“He never intended to win.”
Bingo, I think you are spot on. He has acted like this was a distraction and a chore for him the whole time.
I thought for a moment Boehner grew some balls but guess I was mistaken. same ole same ole.
T%he House needs to fire Boehner Now.We need leadership willing to fight the democrats and their continuous pushing of the communist agenda.We don’t need a lap dog.
How did he fight? I didn’t see him fight. I see him giving up.
Bonehead has worked his deal with the devil Pelosi. What votes he loses
with conservatives, will be more than made up by RAT votes. Bonehead
does not know the meaning of a good fight.
Boehner must have a lot of towels: he keeps throwing them in!
