This is actually a great clip of Boehner taking it to the Democrats today on the House floor, setting the facts straight over this student loan interest rate and the so-called ‘war on women’. I know most of us consider him a weak speaker, but this is an example of the backbone we’d like to see both in speech and action. It’s pretty awesome:

    Love it. Boehner did an exceptional job!

    About damn time he spoke like that .

    • Is_Sense_Common

      I think he knows his butt’s on the line too. If doesn’t start talking like this daily, he’ll be out of a leadership role. Truth is, he should be out of a leadership role regardless – it’s a little too little, a little too late. Move over & let Allen West be Speaker.

    THAT’S THE PROBLEM mr. one half of one third of one man with one testacle!!!!!

    “There’s no fight here whatsoever.”
    “Do we have to fight about everything?”

    • WordsFailMe

      If he would have started with

      “President Obama is lying again! This time he’s lying in the very faces of college students, that next group to join the unemployed in June 2012, ”

      then maybe, and only maybe, would I have considered thinking about renewing that last molecule of faith I had in him and the Republicans which they pissed away months ago.

    If I was his speech writer, I’d have him say, “Why are we fighting over non existant democrat instigated non issues when we have dear leader circumventing THIS house, and giving millions of dollars in aid to our enemies? Why are we worrying about free birth control when dear leader is stabbing our only middle eastern ally in the back? Why are we fighting over who hates women more when dear leader has the White House crawling with muslim brotherhood? This fight is just silly! Let’s make a motion to impeach dear leader and send it over to the senate NOW!”

    • kong1967

      A little advice, I’d remove “dear” before leader because you will be outing yourself as the writer. You might get a lawn full of OWS druggies threatening to burn your house down, lol.

      Israel is not our only Middle Eastern ally. There’s Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Kuwait, Pakistan, Morocco, Qatar, and Bahrain. I don’t know if we can count Pakistan or Egypt any more, but we’ll see. However, Israel is our strongest and best ally.

      Did you see where we sent six of our best jets to the (I believe they said) United Arab Emirates as a show of force to Iran? Obama did this? I’m kinda shocked.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        Those OWs clowns wouldn’t get within a hundred yards of my lawn. If by chance one or 10 of them snuck in, well, I’ve been meaning to do more target practice.

        As for “dear” leader, I think I’m outed already, and I think it describes him better than just leader. My highschool English teacher always did give me high marks for my descriptive writing.

        • librtifirst

          That’s the nice thing about living out in county territory, rather than in the city. A little firearm discharge isn’t illegal, and they don’t always know where the bullets are flying. They have to assume that they are coming their direction.

          The sound of bullets whizzing by is a unique experience. I have only experienced it once, in an open field. “Hit the dirt” took on a new meaning. Then “fly like the wind” did as well. After arming myself for defense, I saw a friend coming up the hill laughing his butt off. Only once.

          • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

            Only once. Is he still your friend?

            • librtifirst

              For the last 28 years. This happened about 18 years ago. The other friend who was with me, and myself, have never let him live it down. It is a point of shame that he now avoids like wildfire. He is actually a very safety conscious person with firearms. He was growing up, and still is. If I was going to have anyone pull this little trick on me, I would rather it be him, because his aim is true. Since then, his defense has been that he didn’t shoot close to us. My response is “how far away can you hear a bullet whiz by, that sounds like a bee flying around your head”? It was a dumb stunt, and he knows it.

              He is the only friend I have that is prepping for a financial collapse. We actually have a strategy to support each other when it all goes down. We have a food plan and a personal protection plan. We work together on resources. It is hard to find people willing to do that, and whom you can trust.

              • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                I’m glad he learned from that, as some folks never do. But it is good to have someone close to you that you can trust and I’m glad you guys have each other’s backs!

  • BSScoop

    John Boehner is weak and spineless like most of the GOP. And, ignorant of economics. Student loans being artificially suppressed is beyond harmful, it’s traitorous. Listen John, the MARKET determines interest rates not you! The arrogance of our politicians, even so called “conservatives” is nauseating.

    The federal government has ZERO role to play in financing education. You are right to speak against threats to our religious liberties and political stunts but it’s way too little way too late. Wrapped up in your outrage and soaring rhetoric is a philosophy that grows government influence in education. Disgusting and misleading, such is the state of the republican party.

    BS
    Don’t Tread On Me

    • librtifirst

      Free markets are now just an illusion that politicians use to lull us suckers into wall street banker investments. They work for the bankers, and do their jobs well. How many people actually believe that their 401k value is real? The money isn’t even real. It is made up for the purpose of getting us to give up our labor and real estate for printed paper that they knew all along would get destroyed. That’s why the Fed was created. Boehner knows this. He wouldn’t have been put in as speaker if they couldn’t trust him to tow the lie, and act out the treason.

      • BSScoop

        Yup, atta way librtifirst. We haven’t had a free economy since 1913. I’m not sure which is worse, democrats who are really communists or republicans who constantly fight for “freedom” like lower income taxes (property theft) and central banking (more powerful than standing armies – TJ) without delegitimizing their existence. Who speaks out with the rhetoric of liberty? Certainly not John Boehner.

        BS
        DTOM

        • librtifirst

          I don’t see good in either party anymore.We have been indoctrinated into thinking that taxes are patriotic, and the health of the State is more important than individual liberty. Government used that funny money to lock everyone into the system. When the money goes down, they will have it all. (the bankers and global controllers) Our national sovereignty will melt away. Terrorists won’t take us down, the banks will. The irony is that the banks have funded all sides of all wars for the last 100 years. It’s unexpectedly amazing how they have pulled it off.

          RP won’t be president, but he is waking people up. Like him or hate him, he is a patriot.

  • kong1967

    Everything Obama and his crack teams do is political. Nothing is done for the benefit of the country or the people in it. Think about it. Name one thing that Obama has done that was not done for political reasons or postponed for political reasons? Can you do it? I can’t.

    The Democrats are throwing out everything they possibly can to stir up division and controversy so they can rile up their voters and to keep the attention away from Obama’s record and the failures. Hurry up November!

    • WordsFailMe

      In a nutshell kong, you have nailed it! Wow!

    • NYGino

      Can’t think of a single thing he has done to benefit the country, you are so right.

      Edit: Maybe getting out of Dodge on all those vacations. Somehow it felt good when he was away.

      • kong1967

        Yeah, I thought of one, too. Bin Laden, but that was a no-brainer decision (that he had to sleep on) and he had nothing to do with finding him. They will be rolling that out in their campaign, too. Obama got Bin Laden. They bash Romney because Romney, like Bush, was more focused on the overall war because killing Bin Laden didn’t change anything. Libs act like it’s over now that Bin Laden’s gone. We will probably have that debate going on again.

    Boehner will speak like this and call Obama out… and then 24 hours later it is forgotten and they have moved on. If the man had any guts he would charge Obama with violating his oath of office – or the GOP would demand that Obama remove the seal off his personal records before the election.

    The GOP leadership is gutless.

    • librtifirst

      It takes guts to put on a national act on this level. Lying to tens of millions of people on a daily basis, and staying in office, takes some big old ca-hones.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Not really. Democrats do it all the time. Some Republicans, too.

      • capelady

        If you are speaking of Obama, that is not guts… that is NPD… Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and sheer arrogance.

        • librtifirst

          I think that over 80% of our national politicians lie purposefully to us. Probably more like 90%. I have a fairly strict definition of lying. If you say something in a campaign, then don’t do it after elected, you are a liar. Based on that, it is probably 99% who lie to us.

          • capelady

            Did you see that Hillary Clinton openly told a Muslim who was questioning her about Obama catering to American Jews that you can’t pay attention to what is said during a campaign because it doesn’t really mean anything?

            • librtifirst

              I did hear something about it, but haven’t seen a video or recording. The Clinton’s are old school globalists. Old school globalists are racists. They don’t like Obama being there, but the banks and global government wanted him in, so they deal with it. Obama may think that he will be protected by the globalists after the collapse, but I think that they will abandon him. He is just a useful idiot-tool at this point.

    Nah, sorry. That’s a metrosexual’s perspective, not a leader’s. If Boehner wants to grow a spine, then I’m happy to see it … but this was a whine. About the 2:05 – 2:10 was genuinely excellent, but that’s all I heard that was awesome. My guess is that NOW that polling shows a collective consciousness leaning the Republicans’ way, Boehner feels safe enough to scold everyone when the only scolding needs to be the Democrats.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/2A6HIPLFALQCHLNVDFOHJ5TZAM Barton

    Did I hear him say “cut 4 billion out of the ‘slush’ fund”? The sad part is, they are honestly bickering over less than 1/10 of 1% of the entire deficit spending since MaoBama took office(not during this particular clip, but it was mentioned). When will we argue over cutting a “tad” more than that?

    • librtifirst

      There are a handful of reps trying to argue for much more than than the establishment GOP is, but they don’t make the lamestream media all that often and they don’t get leadership positions. RP says 1T the first year, but it includes too much overseas military cutting while trying to slowly wean Americans off of the welfare state.

      Spending has to go up, due to inflation alone. Currency devaluation accounts for much of the budget increases, and will become more prevalent in the future. Hyper inflation will crash the system entirely, and then all of the programs will be cut. All of our resources will be under government control after this happens. We will all be dependent on government for food, energy, etc.

      Many countries are now getting out of the dollar as the world reserve trade currency. The Fed Note only has value because of its reserve status. If it had to compete fairly, it would be done for.

      There is no real solution outside of creating a sound currency based on commodities, or having competing currencies. A currency based on corn production alone would have more value than the Fed Note.

      Central planning has to be abandoned. Central financial planning is, at its core, a tool for control and consolidation of wealth. If you aren’t one of the planners, you are not getting the wealth.

      Our problems are systematic, not budgetary.

    Boehner has a bad habit of saying things, and then doing things behind the backs of Americans. This is why I can’t ever give him credit for his little speeches or press releases. He is somewhat like Zero this way, kind of a slight of hand artist.
