John Boehner disputes Valerie Jarrett immigration description
Politico ^ | 5/16/14 | JAKE SHERMAN

Posted on 05/16/2014 8:43:09 AM PDT by jimbo123

House Speaker John Boehner’s staff says he has not made a commitment to the White House to move an overhaul of the immigration laws this year, pushing back against comments made this week by a senior advisor in the Obama administration made this week.

Valerie Jarrett told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that she thinks there’s a window “this summer, between now and August, to get something done.

“We have a commitment from Speaker Boehner, who’s very frustrated with his caucus,” Jarrett told the newspaper.

Michael Steel, a spokesman for the Ohio Republican, said Boehner has not made a commitment to the White House.

Did “Orange “Boy”” get caught “Red-Handed”?

From the article: Jarrett tweeted Friday that her comments were misconstrued and that “Boehner has made [a] commitment to trying, not that he has made commitment to us or time frame.”

Busted.

On a side note, Boehner’s Amnesty Czar Becky Talent has all the gravitas of Brittany Spears. This lady is in charge of pushing Amnesty:

No, I actually believe Boehner on this one. Close call, but I don’t think Jarrett is capable of actually ever uttering anything true.

I also think Boehner changed his tune a few weeks ago when he saw data as to what 12 million new Dem voters would do to our electoral system forever.

Who believes Boehner on anything? The man has absolutely no credibility. He’s a total disgrace.

It is in the White House’s interest to stir conflict within the Republican ranks.
It may be true, or it might be White House lies.

Whatever conflict there is in the Republican ranks is due more to inept leadership within the party than anything the White Hut is doing. The GOP is directionless and devoid of any grounding principles. Just my opinion.

Well, one of them is lying. But which one? Boehner? Jarrett? Jarrett? Boehner?
Damn. That is one tough call.

1) There is a brazen liar in this story.

2) It is NOT Valerie Jarrett!

Let make a deal. Eric Holder needs to "get something done" on the IRS scandal, indictments, convictions, etc. and THEN we can talk about "immigration reform".

Jarrett said: “We have a commitment from Speaker Boehner, who’s very frustrated with his caucus.”

I gotta say I believe Valerie Jarrett on this one.

Speaker Boehner opposes amnesty like President Obama opposed homosexual marriage before his views “evolved”.

I think Boehner, Cantor, and many other Republican leaders are drooling at the chance to amnesty illegal aliens who are here now and open our borders wide to far greater legal immigration. There’s just that pesky American voter thing. Darn constituents!

I should also note that as bad as the Republicans are, they’re clearly still divided on amnesty or we’d already have it. Boehner has to tread carefully or there will be a revolution in the party. Compare that to the Democrats who would (and have) eagerly voted for amnesty in near perfect unison.

Are you talking about John, there is no deal to raise taxes, Boehner? Problem is, this guy is such a liar, you can’t ignore accusations made by another liar.

“House Speaker John Boehner’s staff says he has not made a commitment to the White House”

First off, it is his staff speaking, not him, so he can deny the deny anytime.

Second, hearing these comments uttered by him would be like him telling his AA buddies, no, hic, I did not, hic, have a drink, hic.

If I want to break into your home but don’t because I’m scared you might have a gun, I’m still basically a thief at heart. “Trying” means Boehner wants amnesty. He’s just scared of the political ramifications and rightly so. Amnesty by any other name (comprehensive immigration reform) is extremely unpopular with rank and file Republican voters.

If they didn't lie so much they wouldn't be "misconstrued" so much.

Well, you’re certainly right. The Democrats would love to sow dissent in Republican ranks. The problem, however, is Boehner, Cantor, Rubio, etc. make no bones about how much they personally want comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty. The lies work, if they’re that, because there’s more than an element of truth to them. I don’t know about you, but I don’t trust Boehner, Cantor, or the rest of the so-called GOPe one bit.

Boehner is the definition contradictory!

What he says yesterday, is not what he means today.

They need to dump Boehner now, as if obama is not bad enough this guy doubles down on chaos and confusion.

Val Jar ??? What office, you say? Why, she’s the Prezeedent, chief of everything Obummer. She’s the one who calls all the shots, she’s the one who knows where bummer was during Benghazi, etc.

She is captain of this ship? Mussie ties, you say? oh you betcha. That’s what un-elected office she runs. Our great country. Secret Service detail, dines in private quarters with O’s family........ on and on.

Press leaves her 100% alone. Sickening.

No, I’m not talking about Boeher really - I’m talking about Jarrett more specifically. When Jarrett and anyone on the planet say something differently, I will believe whoever is NOT Valerie Jarrett every time.

Has nothing to do with trusting Boehner per se, not at all.

Michael Steel, a spokesman for the Ohio Republican, said Boehner has not made a commitment to the White House.

Boehner has undoubtedly made the commitment to the US Chamber of Commerce.

He doesn’t have to make a commitment. Obama already knows that Boehner will go for amnesty. He already said so. Boehner is just waiting for his RINO buddies like Cantor to get through their primaries. Then it’s full speed ahead on amnesty. The Chamber of Commerce already gave him his orders.

Boehner and his GOPe crew have been playing yo yo with everyone.

About every other month, Boehner or one of his GOPe’r comes out to whisper(campaign) they will get “immigration reform” done to the DU-Ds [Val Jar] and to the crony capitalists [Thomas Donahue] in the chamber of commerce followed by prompt denials.

Boehner knows over 80% to +90% of the House Rs won’t support amnesty for illegals in any form. If Boehner tries to jam through amnesty with the bare minimum of RINO votes and every D vote, he puts in jeopardy his speakership. The question is will Boehner risk his job?

So we get this yo yo, back and forth, campaign to keep the big R money donors on a string.

Anyone that gets that close to the POS needs some serious sit down time while the facts are ‘splaned to him.

Come to think of it, they are BOTH a POS.
