Boehner: Election a 'mandate to work together' with Dems (Time for Conservatives to part ways)
the hill ^ | 11/10/2012 | By Daniel Strauss

Posted on 11/10/2012 7:12:28 AM PST by tobyhill

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called it "critical" to avoid automatic spending cuts and tax-rate increases that could go into effect if Congress does not agree on a deficit-reduction plan.

Boehner's call during the weekly Republican address came after a week in which Republicans and Democrats moved away from focusing on Tuesday's presidential election and toward immigration reform and a deal to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff."

Boehner urged Congress to begin action on job creation and deficit reduction.

Any third party attempts must me limited to select house races, state legislative races, school boards, treasurers etc.

Any attempt to challenge the GOP on a grand scale will be crushed. Better to snatch the occasional house race and caucus with the GOP conservatives while building our brand.

Again as I just posted, in Speaker John Boehner Changes Hard-line Tone and Pledges Immigration Reform

To: Clint N. Suhks

House Speaker John A. Boehner, one of the most hard-line members of Congress on immigration, now says that comprehensive reform – which includes a pathway to legalization for the undocumented -- will be a priority in 2013.

Speak John A. Boring needs to be CHALLENGED by someone who is from the TEA PARTY (if he wins the re-count, I'd say Allan West. If not him, Paul Ryan!!) 35 posted on Saturday, November 10, 2012 12:06:39 PM by

we conservatives are the RINO’s I guess. We have no place in the GOP. We mistakingly believed this party was an alternative to the Democrat Party but it is really an arm of the Democrat Party

I don’t think Obama thinks its the end of the world if tax rates go back to where they were before Bush. His preference is for a huge voting block - say 60% - to pay no taxes and lock in power. But I think he can live with Clinton era tax rates.

As a result Obama is in a much better negotiating position. Boehner is between a rock and a hard place.

If we had a warrior in Boehner’s job he would be wise to hold strong. Better Clinton era tax rates than allow dems to permanently lock in even more power. It does hurt the economy as does ObamaCare. But Obama gets the blame. Yes he will try to blame Republicans. But this admits that lower Bush tax rates for <250K was actually a good thing and Clinton era rates were too high. so he has a problem there.

I do not post vanities, or threads. Know how but normally do not do it. One vanity during my tenure. Have drafted a proposal. A prayer you will not mind my posting to your thread. It may need a thread of its own, but this is a draft proposal. My apology if have done what you would not desire me do, in placing a post to your thread (draft proposal follows)

(insert date)

(To Your Senators: )
The Honorable (full name)
(Room #) (Name) Senate Office Building
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator:

(To Your Representative: )
The Honorable (full name)
(Room #) (Name) House Office Building
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative:

My name is (insert name). I live at (insert address) end of paragraph. My credential are (list credentials). (Or for someone like I am.) I am a citizen of the United States.

(Honorable name of representative or Senator), today I write a request. I voted our last election and voted for you during the time of your running for elective office. Today, I write with many others. We are like minded and want what is best for our nation. This past November 6, 2012 taught me lessons. To return to Conservatism and to restore our nation, am humbly requesting my proposal be a consideration by those of like-mindedness within the body of Congress of the Republican Party. This proposal is extreme, though necessary for future generations running within the Republican Party to attain office. I pray my letter has not made file thirteen, for I propose the following. Allow the economy to crash. Back away from legislation by voting “present”. Tell the people elections have consequences, before and after voting “present”. The democrats won. Allow the democrats to take the blame for the coming crash. My children and grandchildren are depending upon your votes to secure for our future generations a chance to be Americans once more. Americans are resourceful. We will survive, if we are Americans, and not destine to become a dependent class of peoples. Your votes will make the difference. I humbly request the vote of “present” on all matters involving spending of taxpayer dollars. The economy will most certainly crash. Then America will rebuild. Americans are a proud and free people, and resourceful. Guard the door of our nation with our military, and Americans will sort this matter out. Your votes for freedom will ensure a better tomorrow. The dependent class will suffer. All Americans will suffer. Our suffering is ongoing at this point. I do not embrace the coming suffering, but know is a necessity for building a free people. I will embrace the suffering if Americans (all Americans) can be equal not in monetary blessings but instead equal in the blessings of freedom.

Request is to vote “present” on all legislation regarding funding of said/ any legislation. Allow the economy to crash. Further request, as was above, the freedom to guard our interior of our nation by our Law Enforcement. With military cuts looming, as will be the democrats compromise, give the men and women guarding our borders and our peoples the opportunity to do what they do best. Doing what is done best is being an American.

Sincerely,

(Your name here)

Boehner if the GOP becomes known as the job creating party for the working middle class, they will triumph in 2016. Republicans win when people make good money working for private industry. When times are bad, voters turn to Democrats.

Republicans have to increase the acceptance of their brand name. Right now they are the job exporting, Obama hating, tax cuts for the rich, low approval Congress, women controlling and screwers of the middle class. How has that worked out for winning?

What happened with this?
http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2010/09/dont_bet_on_a_boehner_bombshel.html

Can Boehner be blackmailed by the leftys? Do we really want this man as Speaker of the House— he’s already acting as if he runs the whole enchilada and none of the other representatives matter.

I can’t stand the man.

It is time for Conservatives to recognize they have no place in the GOP.

We haven't since Reagan left office.

There is no political solution to this crises, both Parties are in on it.

It is a little dance they do for their respective voters, but in the end, they just are quibbling about marginal issues.

It’s all good. I want letters and phone calls to our House Reps telling them that we are tired of trying to negotiate with the Rats when we NEVER get anything in return and worse than that, we control the House.

Thanks for doing the letter.

Instead of " I propose the following. Allow the economy to crash. Back away from legislation by voting “present”. Tell the people elections have consequences, before and after voting “present”. The democrats won. Allow the democrats to take the blame for the coming crash. "

I would say "I propose the following; Refrain from voting for more government in any form, whether by stimulus, pork or bailouts by voting "present" on such measures. Tell the people that you can no longer morally support squandering the future of America and indebting future generations. Tell the people that elections have consequences and the democrats must face the reality that they cannot spend money we don't have and increase debt forever, nor is there enough of an economy left to even start to cover the deficit with increased taxes."

Then say "Please tell the people that you realize this will cause economic disruption in the short run but that continued ballooning debt will inevitably result in massive inflation, default or cuts that gut our military and similar federal responsibilities. That would mean the end of America as we know it. Tell the Democrats that they must accept responsibility for this inevitable economic adjustment because they are primarily responsible having had full control of Congress in 2006. Then tell the people that you realize that both parties have helped cause this but only one party is willing to stop the debt spiral before it is too late."

Then the rest of your letter is good starting with 'My children and grandchildren are depending upon your votes to secure for our future generations a chance to be Americans once more. Americans are resourceful. We will survive,..."

...fun of watching the MSM try to blame conservatives...

So what's new with that? They always tear conservatives down for the slightest reason, or NO good reason, but ignore some OUTRAGEOUS behaviors of the left.

Let them destroy the country? America is OUR country also, and that of our children.

I try to understand some of the liberal positions but end up seeing them as illogical.

palmer had a good or great suggestion Laz regarding letter wording. Am wanting this to be page one of two pages. Letter then Issues. Maybe I've given up Laz. I truly am thinking of my children and grandchildren. They are strong. I am not. I think they can survive.

Am going to take your advice, if I move to mail a letter. Your thoughts are appreciated, and make for a better letter and will Not Require a page two. Having had experience with letters and Congress, there has never been a time when those I contacted, in Congress, took my advice. They were always more intelligent than me. Would laugh at loud if this were not so serious. Maybe I should just take a drink, and toast what used to be.

I can normally stop at one drink or two or sometimes go forth and ask myself, how did me drunk that so to the bottom? I don’t recommend it though. That is ... taking the first one. Kind of blows up the reason for quiting. Am thinking of one though. Either a letter or a drink. A toast is probable to you from cyberland. It will be real, FRiend, and stop after one. Letter or a drink with a toast. How does one wind up in these situations anyhow?
