Right Wants More from John Boehner
Politico ^ | May 13, 2012 | Jake Sherman

Posted on 05/13/2012 8:49:32 PM PDT by James Thomas

The cautious approach that top Republicans have taken on whether to vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress has sparked a new round of hand-wringing over the party’s direction on Capitol Hill.

Specifically, conservatives want bolder, more aggressive leadership from House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the rest of GOP high command — on Holder and the broader Republican agenda heading into November.

If this article is accurate, the big news is that the Oversight and Governmental Reform Committee will vote on the contempt citation against Holder this week. Three weeks ago Kevin McCarthy, the House Majority Whip, told me in person that he saw the citation moving forward. Last Thursday, Boehner said at his press conference that "all options were on the table". For any fellow Freepers who care about this scandal, I humbly submit that it would not hurt to have the Speaker hear from us.

I dont want anything more from him. I just want him extracted from office by the scruff of his neck.

I expect nothing but tears and crying from No Balls Boner. This guy is an empty suit.

I called Boehner’s office and tried to express my support for Issa and the contempt citation. I was placed on hold and no one ever came back on the line. I also called Cantor’s office and put in my two cents worth with them.

I have my doubts that any of them listen but maybe sheer numbers will get the point across!

Boehner is not an “empty suit”. He is dressed more like a “weak sister”.

His motto is: “Forward, maybe; let’s vote on it - no, let’s think about it; I gotta go to the john”.

That’s the spirit, VikingMom. I will be faxing a letter to the Speaker in the morning. He realizes that for each of us that contacts him, there are thousands of other concerned Americans who share our view. There is no question that Boehner is feeling pressure from his caucus and from some in the press.

Only for him to be voted out of Congress and never to be heard from again!

He's close to the best democrap the Republicans have!

Boehner is totally misnamed. I doubt if he remembers his last one and if he has a single solid bone in his body, I would be very surprised. There certainly isn’t one in his back!

He, like every other RINO in congress, is on borrowed time and he better get that dialed in fast. The Tea Party Patriots have tasted blood and we like it. Roast RINO is on the menu!

He better start showing some moxie or he’s going to get shown to the door!

Thank you for the encouragement to match our grousing and griping among the choir with faxing, emailing and phoning some of these political inbreds.

This simple political ACTION should be a prereqisite before we call ourselves TEA PARTY conservatives, ANDDDDD, it can be done from the couch munching on a potato. :D

VOTE CRUZ IN TEXAS.

I see this as just more of the divide and conquer strategy from Politico.
We can disagree privately, but I think we should present a united front publicly. 11th commandment and all that...

What do you have to do to be in contempt of Congress?..
Maybe the contemptible Congress is beyond contempt..

Showing contempt for Congress may be the honorable thing..
Any honor may be a rare thing in Washington D.C.

Hand wringing is the only thing the Congressional Republicans are doing now.

[ Vote them all out in November. ]

Straight republican ticket 2012... no choice (again)..
2016 I’ll be in a different party..

Running the inventor of Romney-Care versus the inventor of DOHbama-care cut it for me..
The republican party is corrupt.. the voters more than the candidates..

The republican party is no longer right wing.. or even centrist..
I’m stuck on stupid in 2012 but 2016 is a different matter..

I regularly write Boehner to express my disappointment in him and demand that he grow a set of balls.

So true, and Boehner wouldn’t read it anyway.

Check THUS out from Wiki:
Boehner attended Cincinnati’s Moeller High School and was a linebacker on the school’s football team, where he was coached by future Notre Dame coach Gerry Faust.[9] Graduating from Moeller in 1968, when U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War was at its peak, Boehner enlisted in the United States Navy but was honorably discharged after eight weeks because of a bad back.[10] He earned his B.A. in business administration from Xavier University in 1977, becoming the first person in his family to attend college, taking seven years as he held several jobs to pay for his education.[7]

I KNEW it, PUSSY SLIMED out of VietNam Just Like Newt, Cheney, Rommney and Quayle!
