You want honest constructive criticism?

The Stan Laurel statue over your left shoulder is distracting. It looks like he’s laughing at you.

You might want to consider a new FR account too. Some will eat you alive over your screen name.

Something more pro Ohio like Standing in Ohio or Strong in Ohio.

And why is it all Boehner’s fault, instead of the fault of the Democrats?

Recommend you don’t run and not distract primary voters.

If you want to do something useful, help Republicans defeat Democrats, instead of the other way around.

"I’ve known John Boehner for over two-and-a-half decades. I don’t hate John Boehner. Was I angry at John Boehner in 2006? You better believe it. I make no bones about that. But John Boehner has always been, and this is my opinion, but I think the opinion of many, on the lazy side in the sense that he’s a get-along guy. He doesn’t like a lot of controversy. He’s always enjoyed the golfing. I would have to term it an addiction for John Boehner,” Ney said. I’m not calling anyone an alcoholic, being a recovering alcoholic, but I’ve got to tell you John Boehner is a constant drinker of wine. He’s been seen with lobbyists for decades on a nightly basis and drinking. I’m not judging him, but I think it’s part of the story."

Former U.S. Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio

John Boehner: When drunks lead Congress, disaster is the only option

"My friends and contacts on Capitol Hill from my days as a Congressional staff member (press secretary, chief of staff and committee staffer) from 1981-87 and a later stint from 1987-1992 as Vice President of Political Programs for the National Association of Realtors, tell me that Boehner’s bouts with alcohol abuse are well known around Capitol Hill and the subject of much concern.....“Is John Boehner a drunk? Of course he is,” a House GOP aide says his boss grumbled to him recently. “He’s a boozer.” When Boehner became Speaker of the House in 2011, more than a few Republicans shook their head and wondered why. Some speculated on just how long it would be before their new Speaker got caught drunk in public.

Boehner needs help. The man is a full blown alcoholic. I have great sympathy for him, but he has no business being number 3 in line to the Presidency given his current addiction. He needs to resign as Speaker and get himself into a program.

Here is a Vanity Ad idea I posted to Free Republic a few days ago, feel free to steal it to crush Ball-less bawling Brainless Bawling Boozing Bone-head Bohner.

Here si my idea for a Commercial for the Tea party that might wake up some people and who know could help create a Populist Tea party movement.

[Commercial Starts]

Narrator: “For years the Democrat Party has said that they problem in Washington is Big Business”

[Show pictures of Fat Cats on Wall Street and smoke stacks and Big Lobbyists]

Narrator: “And for just as many years the Republican party has sadi that the problem in washington is Big Bloated Government”

[Show pictures of the IRS agents and Bureaucratic paper work, money being flushed down the toilet and red tape and images of clueless government workers and maybe a 1,000,000 dollar toilet seat]

Narrator: “Both the Republicans and Democrats are WRONG! The problem with Washington is Collusion of Big Business and Big Government!”

[Show images of Big business lobbyists (GE, ADM, etc) shaking hands with crooked politicians that have both democrat and republican symbols on their suits]

Narrator: “Big Business plots and schemes push pass regulations that only they can easily comply with while the small and medium businesses feel the squeeze the most. Keeping their competition down they use the Big Government apparatus to destroy their competition until they either go broke or can buy them out.”

[Go to a clip of Rockefeller saying: Competition is a Sin ]

Narrator: “And Big Government does what it can to keep these Big Business types in power no mater what party they are with because they can always rely on filling their campaign coffers by helping Big Businesses to squash their competition..”

[Show a graphic of campaign contributions by GE, etc..]

Narrator: “The Tea Party has a better idea, why not limit the amount of power that government has so it cannot be co-opted by Big Business AND the people in government itself who get themselves positions of graft and power by being the middle men. Remember the issue isn’t Big Government vs. Big Business, the issue is Stopping the monopoly of power BOTH of them have and ending the stranglehold that they have over the individual and small/medium businesses.”

Narrator: “You want a REAL change, Vote for the Tea Party!”

To have a shot at beating Boehner you will have to hire a very good PR firm with political experience and raise (or invest) a lot of cash.

You cannot win a debate with Boehner unless people are engaged. The majority of voters are never going to listen to logical arguments but will base their decision on perceptions they get from sound bites, how polished your ads and videos are (rather than the actual content), and some positive news coverage which will be hard to come by. If you could get some positive coverage on conservative talk radio you might have a shot.

Make your case to several conservative talk show hosts. if any will give you some airplay you might be able to raise cash and gain some traction with the listeners at the same time.

You need a website and a list of your campaign issues distilled down to very simple talking points / sound bites, pronto. You have to have some takeaway ideas that the average voter can comprehend and easily recall expressed in a few seconds. Tough job, but that is how the game is played.

That’s my two cents.

You are quoting a guy (Publisher of Capitol Hill Blue) who said:

“After watching what George W. Bush and the Republican leadership of Congress have done to the country I love, I am sorry I ever had anything to do with these people. They are, I believe, a much bigger threat to freedom and the American way of life than any terrorist with a bomb or foreign dictator with a hate-America agenda.”

I found it on democratic underground and unfortunately the original link that was posted there is not good anymore — this is from 2005.

So his bashing of Boehner doesn’t have any credibility.

If Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress as a start and hopefully the Presidential office, you bet we would be a lot better off.

Why is it that “conservatives” are focused on defeating Republicans and ending up helping electing communists? How is that helpful to the “conservative cause”?

Oh please. The fact that Boehner is an alcoholic is the worst kept secret in Washington.

I will give you links, but you can also do your own research. Even then, you sound like you don't want to know the truth.

There is nothing wrong with drinking unless you are an alcoholic and there have long been rumors of several of them in congress. John Boehner is at the top of the list of alleged alcoholics and maybe we should start with him. If you simply type “John Boehner alcoholic” in Google, you will have your choice of many wonderful tales of his habitual drinking and carousing with Capitol Hill staffers.

Speaker John Boehner: An out-of-control drunk who can’t lead or govern?

Is John Boehner hitting the bottle?

GOP leader denies charge he’s out bar-hopping every night

Bush set a dry tone for Republicans in Washington. But Tuesday's election and the rise of a certain orange-hued Ohioan put the party back in Republican Party. Prepare for John Boehner, uncorked.

John Boehner's Crying: Is He Drinking Too Much?

I will tell you something else: I bet I know why John Boehner himself admits to an overuse of tanning beds. He does it to disguise the effects of his alcohol rosacea.

I liked your premise on the banking-currency-debt issue, you have a good speaking voice and you illustrate your differences with the Speaker quite well.

What I liked less was the background setting you were in, the lighting in the room, and the doll head peeking over your left shoulder.

Find a wall of books or a fireplace to sit in front of, and have a friendly photographer to lend some studio lights to your next video effort.

Good luck!

I don’t live in Ohio, and I don’t watch - for more than a wee bit - any political video.

So, after having watched about 60 seconds of your video, a couple of comments. If you are going to challenge a professional, hire some professional help. A good videographer would make sure your face was appropriately lit up instead of covered with shadows. Secondly, a good PR person could give you feedback about appearing on video. You’re trying to come off as speaking person-to-person and are constantly moving forward and backward. You can be personable without the constant fidgeting. I find that distracting.

Good luck.

Give a simple platform.
You have to keep it simple.
You have to speak sound bites that raise eyebrows.
Make controversy. Make people know who you are.
Use biblical principles without pointing it out.
Piss off Liberals. Go around Bohner and the media
to the people of your state and attack the democrats.

Don't use his name. Use the term “my opponents”.

But if there are more, I hope you ALL decide to group together behind one against him, rather than devide the vote and let him win with less than 50% of the vote (like ‘frontrunner’ Mitt)

I am sure whoever you group behind can use like-minded individuals on his or her team, once the primaries are over

I liked your message and I actually liked that you didn’t throw in all sorts or drama in giving your message.

I bet you can connect with people really well. Maybe do what Santorom did (though I don’t like Santorum...hahaha)get in a pickup or whatever and go meet everyone. I think Scott Brown did the same thing.

The video, white wall, white shirt. Maybe hang a nice picture behind you or get some paint in the room. Practice talking a bunch in the mirror, you seemed to move around a good bit. It’s funny because your talk was calm, direct and good but the moving/fidgeting betrayed you somewhat.

I think you can do this if you’re willing to get out there and work for it and meet people. I hope you do, I really hope so. Boehner needs to go! I agree with the others... ditch your screen-name, unless of course you’re a fan of http://stuckinohio.bigcartel.com/ and then perhaps you shouldn’t change it so you don’t seem like your hiding things or dishonest. You’re just a fan of that site. :)

Good luck!

Look, you can find sources all over the place. Yes, the left is exploiting Boehner's alcoholism in pieces - of course they will! But there are Washington insider media that have done the same as well.

The very fact that the left and Obama have Boehner's addiction to alcohol to use against him as a political weapon is another reason Boehner has to resign as Speaker and get himself into a rehab program.

He doesn't have to resign his Congressional seat, but he can no longer be Speaker.

Here is another, and yes, I believe it. This paper isn't "leftist" - it simply is. And, they exposed the Edwards love child scandal when the rest of the media said not a peep.

JOHN BOEHNER’s BOOZE SCANDAL

"REPUBLICAN Speaker of the House JOHN BOEHNER is battling a severe drinking problem, breaking down in tears after too many glasses of wine – and often showing up for work under the influence, sources say......During the government shutdown, the web site Capitol Hill Blue reported “sources close to” Boehner revealed “the smell of alcohol is far more prevalent on him.” And it quoted a congressional aide as saying, “This is Boehner on his last legs. The continuing capitulation, rambling rhetoric and attempts to drown his ineptitude in a bottle are taking their toll.”

Your video has no sound on my computer.

Please post the text so we can follow along.

Meanwhile, ponder the following:

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

The US House of Representatives is analogous to a Police Force - - - their main job of Check and Balance is to “arrest” the perp by Impeaching the perp.

The US Senate is analogous to a Jury of Peers who have the power to throw the Impeached perp off of the taxpayer gravy train, take away his residence, ban him from building a Library paid for by us, and ban him from using his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One.

Most RINO Americans want to wait, Wait, WAIT! until they control the House, the Senate and the White House.

To those weak-kneeded summer soldier “patriots” I say “Enjoy the Obamanation that you have tolerated since January, 2009.”

In similar manner, we Summer Soldier Conservatives continue to tolerate a wimpy, hand-wringing, sobbing, crybaby Speaker of the House Boehner as our sorry chief policeman.

“Oh, if only my best friends across the aisle would just play nicey nice - - - “ is the perfect quote that fire-in-the-belly Socialist-Democrats love to hear from their doormat, cowardly, Obamacrat RINOs.

Yes indeed, as long as we WAIT for things to be PERFECT we will never attack those whose goal is to destroy the US Constitution.

Suck it up you sorry House RINOs, and replace John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner with SC Rep Trey Gowdey, or SC Rep Joe Wilson.

Without a fire-in-the-belly Republican Speaker of the House, Obamacrat RINOs will continue to cave in to “their best friends across the aisle,” to the unbridled glee of every Democrat voter in America!

House RINOs: Pretend that you are paid by taxpayers to fight to enforce the US Constitution.

Fight or go home, House RINOs.

FIGHT or we will send you home!

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

_________________________

The RINO Establishment has been, is now, and forever will be a spineless relic that is incapable of protecting the US Constitution.

Commie Obama came in 1-2009, and by 12-24-2009 he had Nationalized one sixth of the US Economy.

Now, four YEARS later, loyal RINO Establishment stalwarts estimate that it will take a generation (20-25 years) to undo what Commie Obama did in eleven MONTHS.

What does it take for the Loyalist RINOs to draw a line in the sand?

As for concern about “loss of political capital” and other Leftstream Media manipulating tactics, when in the next 20 to 25 years would be a good time for y’all to consider to begin to commence thinking about draining the swamp full of Leftstream Media “alligators?”

There are more of us than there are of them, so grow a pair and FIGHT the Left Stream Media!

Remember this: Commie Obama is counting on never being held accountable for his violations of the US Constitution.

BTW, Boehner and McConnell have done their best to not hold Commie Obama accountable for 4 years.

Thus, support for the RINO Establishment is to continue to endorse the Boehner-McConnell protection from accountability plan for Commie Obama.

He is soliciting donations.

I suggest that anyone who wants to donate, focus on Republican candidates who have a chance of defeating their Dem opponents where your donation might actually make a difference, instead of doing the opposite, weakening a Republican candidate to help their Dem opponent.

"trying to turn Republicans against each other"

Interesting point.

Wasn't it Bohner that said the Tea Party should be punched in the nose? Isn't he one of the GOPers trying to take out the Tea Party?

And accusing TPers of being communists or agents provocateurs isn't going to win you any FRiends here.

Let me ask you this; when Bohner folds like the cheap suit he is on extending unemployment comp and therefore busts his great budget deal w/ the dhimmis, where will you be?

Even if you don't control both houses of congress, at least you put up a fight!

And, you CERTAINLY don't attack those in your own party who are trying to fight.

Boehner has played a leading role in the republican surrender caucus.

He hasn't earned his position as Speaker of the House.

He hasn't earned his place in congress.

He needs to go

Judicial Watch’s Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians of 2013

Speaker of the House John Boehner is selected for what Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer calls the “Tollbooth Strategy,” explaining, “You pay money at a tollbooth in order to use a road or bridge.

The methodology in Washington is similar: if someone wants a bill passed, charge them money to allow the bill to move down the legislative highway.” Schweizer reported that Boehner apparently used the Tollbooth Strategy to collect more than $200,000 in political donations from executives just days before holding votes on bills critically important to their industries.

I think what Reagan menat by the 11th commandment was to promote YOURSELF and your ideas, do not spend your time talking down other republicans, save that for the democrats

We had 6 (or more) Republicans running n the presidential primaries last year and the media gladly put them on TV Debates over and over because they spent the entire campaign beating each other up- instead of the democrats.

By the time “frontrunner” mitt won (with a whole 30% support) no one like any of the candidates any more.
and the media LOVES to show republicans beating up other republicans.

Talk about your own ideas and why you are good, not why the other GOP primary opponiets are jerkfaces that should not win, because that;’s ammunition you give for the democrats against whcihever one wins the primaries

The democrats probably love GOP primares because they get to find out all the dirt on each candidate FROM US
