Skip to comments.Better Off Without Leaders Like These [Boehner, McCarthy, Ryan]
Posted on 10/09/2015 9:55:15 AM PDT by Hebrews 11:6
Paul Ryan? Are you kidding me? Paul Ryan ... more like Paul Ryan-o, as in RINO.
Republican in Name Only.
All these fools were running around Capitol Hill yesterday like Chicken Littles, elbowing one another out of the way to get to their Fox liveshots. The sky is falling, the sky is falling! U.S. Rep. Peter King, RINO-NY, actually said yesterday, People are crying.
Get a grip, pal. There are worse things than having nobody at the top. Having Barack Obama at the top comes immediately to mind.
Last week, John Boehner decided to spend more time with his bartender. So his majority leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy stepped up. The House is like the Elks Club when the boss leaves, all the exalted grand pooh-bahs move up one slot.
McCarthy is from Bakersfield, Calif., but hes no Merle Haggard, not by a long shot. Mark Levin described him as Eric Cantor minus 10 IQ points.
If the rumors on the Internet since last January are true, Levin was generous. The story is that he was playing doctor with the shades drawn with a congresswoman. And that he had dumped her, which was why she hissed to a reporter last week, Im apparently not high on his priority list.
Welcome back to high school.
Do you recall what brought Newt Gingrich down? Touching everything but the third rail. Ditto his successor for 48 hours or so, Bob Livingston. And the following Republican speaker, Dennis Hastert.
These national GOP speakers are as dirty as our own state Democratic speakers.
And yet somehow Kevin McCarthy apparently thought that no one would notice that he was, ahem, overly affectionate with the nice young lady who describes herself as a mom, Christian and nurse, I am pro-family.
And now its the turn of Paul RINO. He was described last night by National Review as the undisputed intellectual leader of House Republicans, which is like being an admiral in the Swiss Navy.
I wonder. Until last night, RINO didnt want the job. Hes been around the block. He knows what happens when you become speaker. Its like becoming capo of a crime family theres a target painted on your back.
Why didnt Rep. RINO want to run for speaker in the first place? Does he know something the rest of us dont yet?
I know a guy, he used to be in the Mob. He was in the gangster equivalent of human resources. His specialty was severance, if you get my drift. He was so good at what he did that after a while, his associates were reluctant to even climb into the front seat of his car beside him.
I always wondered about them if they wouldnt get in the car with me, he mused. It made me suspicious. Had they done something I didnt know about? It always made me wonder. And you know, I didnt have to prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt.
So the next speaker may be Paul RINO. Good Lord. Whos going to be the GOP candidate for president Carly FioRINO?
"And now its the turn of Paul RINO. He was described last night by National Review as the undisputed intellectual leader of House Republicans, which is like being an admiral in the Swiss Navy."
Didn’t Ryan LOSE to Obama??
Why give a looser a leadership spot?
Even worse than that. Paul (Ryan-O) lost during the VP debate to a drunk-acting, bloviating screwball named Joe Biden. Sure Biden looked like a fool, but Ryan was so thrown off by Biden’s lack of decorum, that he allowed Biden to dominate the conversation, to run roughshod all over Ryan’s crisp, tailored and dignified demeanor.
Sum total, people saw Paul as weak. Leave Paul in the back room to crunch his budgetary numbers. That is where he is most comfortable.
Neither Trump or Ted Cruz would allow Biden to do that to them w/o dishing it right back.
Ryans crisp, tailored and dignified demeanor.
Exactly why he doesn’t stand a chance against a guy like Obama who doubles down if he doesn’t get his way, fights dirty, ignores laws, the Constitution, makes his own “law”, and has all sorts of thugs working for him. Ryan is a ‘babe in the woods’ compared to Obama & his henchmen. Obama is probably on his prayer rug ... please, please, Allah, let Ryan be speaker ... pleeeeaaaasssseeeee.
Well said. With the MSM's leftward bias, it's not enough for polite disagreement and go-along-get-along, which Boehner and McConnell specialize in. We need FIGHTERS like Trump and Cruz!
He's proud to be a RINO from Californino.
Yeah, well, with me, they were tears of joy!
i posted this in a different thread wrong one lol
Boehner stood Mccarthy up to take the fall of sacrifice decision to make the statement about the committee to sabotage Gowdy because with all the emails coning to light it would destroy Hillary and put Sanders squarely in the drivers seat Biden wont run if he does he will lose Biden is incompetent Mccarthy didnt have the votes he knew he didn’t ...
Boehners last act of defiance against conservatives semi backfired on him he figured if it took off he was covered but if it didn’t all he had to do was pull the vote out of reach Ryan is a RINO he knows it Boehner is a RINO and so is Mccarthy Ryan don’t want the responsibility he knows the position is as it sits now is a fall guy position
No one in office wants to be the fall guy for the republicans because they have lost their Constitutional way don’t get me wrong their are some who are still on track but its getting harder and harder for them to stand and be counted
Even though I’m a Californian and Howie Carr writes mostly about Massachusetts, I read him daily because of his funny, biting, conservative, iconoclastic writing. Frankly, given how abusive he is toward Boston thugs, I wonder how he’s still in one piece.
All you need to know about Paul Ryan is the way he choked in the debate with Biden. Biden came across as a rude, dementia prone debater, and Ryan was too gentlemanly to call him on his senility. Ryan is a loser.
asinine comments at best....Ryan has young children and the speakers job entails being gone from home for extended periods of time raising money and promoting various causes,
In my younger days I passed up a lucrative position with V.W. for the same reason...my 3 sons were very young and I wanted to be there to see them grow up.
When did Obama ever run for vice president??
you're letting your I.Q. show.....
No, just my sense of humor. But thanks anyway.
2013Lyin RINO Ryan targeted and stabbed military retirees (include those retired medically) in the back when he struck a deal with Sen. Patty Murray to reduce retirement COLAs. Same deal that they wanted to payout over $4 billion to illegals invading our country.
It took two votes to overturn this piece of garbage. Id never vote for him for anything.
Reread EXACTLY what happened and then get back to us....sheesh.
