Boehner on contempt vote: The Terry family and the American people deserve to know the truth

Speaker Boehner held a short press conference this morning, reaffirming that the House will indeed vote to repeal all of ObamaCare if the court doesn’t strike down the entire law. He was also asked by a member of the press ‘what’s the rush’ in holding the contempt vote so soon after the committee voted on contempt. In short, Boehner responded that they had given ample time for AG Holder to comply with the subpoena and that both the Terry family and the American people deserve to know the truth. He was also asked for proof that Fast and Furious was to promote a larger gun control initiative. To that he responded that he had never alleged that and that he doesn’t know the truth yet because he doesn’t have the documents.

  • What a shocker! The ‘Squeaker’ of the House may actually be growing a pair!
    Quick, somebody catch me! I think I’m gonna faint!

    • Rshill7

      Ok, you run and jump and I’ll catch ya’ like a baby.

      Unless you weigh more than 250 or so. In which case pretend, I’m a red cape wielding matador.

      Boehner has lots of back-up on this one. Even a democrat or two will break ranks, or so “they” say.

      • ROFL! Just under 6 foot and 207 and very fit. Still think you can catch me?

        From what I’ve read and heard, 31 democrats have commited to vote for the contempt citation with the republicans.
        Also, almost a dozen dem senators and reps have announced that they will not be attending the democrat convention. While offering various reasons for not attending, I believe we are seeing dems distancing themselves from Obama. Just my opinion of course.

        • Rshill7

          Well, it be an informed opinion. I’ll have to see it before I can believe it.

          OK, start runnin’, I think I can handle that. Wait…first let me buckle into my exoskeleton 😉

      • kong1967

        Even a democrat or two will break ranks, or so “they” say.

        Yeah….maybe. Obama has a way of threatening the ranks back into line.

    • keyesforpres

      Sadly, they haven’t dropped yet.

      • ROFLMAO!! You’ve still got that great sense of humor Key! VG

        • keyesforpres

          Yeah, they won’t be ripping through his pants anytime soon! 😉

    • kong1967

      Just…don’t cry, lol.

  • Way to sound so convincing Boehner. “It’s an unfortunate place where we are… our members raise their right hand and swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the laws of the United States. And we’re going to do our job.”
    If you were doing your jobs, dear leader would first never have been elected due to his not being a natural born citizen. However, since he slipped through with that, there are plenty of impeachable acts that he has done in the past 3 years which if you were doing your job, you would have brought charges against him already. If you were doing your job dear leader, holder and big sis would either be in prison by now or at least hangin’ with the rest of the unemployed.
    Get real Boehner. None of you people have done your job which is to represent the people who put you there.

    • Sandra123456

      Did you notice the woman to the right of Boehner staring at the back of Boehner’s head? She did a great ventriloquist job! Never moved her lips once. Must have been tiresome holding up Boehner with only one hand up his back.

      • ROFLMAO! Excellent humor milady Sandra!

      • DebbyX

        Yes, I noticed her too. She certainly was looking at him admiringly! Seemed a little fishy to me, but after the “blue dress” episode in history, I’m a bit cynical.

      • hbnolikeee

        I’m wondering how she manipulated his mouth.

    • Wow that comment is just a little over the top. You are blaming Boehner for Obama’s election? C’mon.

      • No, not just him. Congress in general.

        • keyesforpres

          Once Boehner became the Speaker, he should have gone after O for not being natural born. So, I do hold him responsible once he became the Speaker.

    • kong1967

      I’m all for the impeachment proceedings, but I’m not so angry about them not starting them. They wouldn’t have a chance to succeed at this point in time.

      So….where’s this “big sis” coming from? You’re the second person I’ve seen calling Nepalitano that. Drudge?

      • I’ve been calling her big sis for 3 years. Forget where I heard the term, but with her homeland so called security list of homegrown Christian/military/Constitution loving terrorists, I thought the name fit perfectly.

        I know that impeachment would have a slim chance to none getting passed, but they don’t even have the spines to try it. I mean, what’s it going to take for people to make them say, “enough is enough”?

        I’m not yelling at you Kong, I’m just in a mood today. I guess I need some chocolate.

        • kong1967

          —I’m cowering in the corner— Put that whip away!! Just teasing, I didn’t take it that way.

          I think the spine will come with numbers. If we get both houses there might be more of a push for it…if Obama is still in office. Hopefully he won’t be.

        • Patriot077

          I think Rush was the first one I heard call Incompetano “Big Sis”. 🙂 I myself prefer Mark Steyn’s nic for the stupid tool in charge of our homeland “security”.

  • Boris_Badenoff

    I hope that Boehner and the rest of the panty waste Repubs in the house hammer the [email protected] out of this administration. Take this all the way…
    I know that’s asking a lot out of these guys and gals but it is what we need right now.

    We are at war and there is no taking prisoners in this… The actions of the administration over the past month shows they know it is now or never… They are making moves that prove they are out to put conservatives down for good.

    Allen West knows the score… To win the war we must vanquish the enemy..

  • Uphold the laws of this land? That’s racist, dontcha know…

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Boehner closed well, and that should be the point. He should stick to one basic answer, “I can’t say b/c the White House will not give us the documents.” That’s really all that needs to be said on the matter.

    • kong1967

      That’s a good tactical move, too. If it were me I would say “hell yeah! Obama tried to frame the gun shop owners in order to push gun control!!” But without solid proof that’s a bad move. His answer was taking the accusation from the press and shoving it back down their throats.

  • WordsFailMe

    Wow. Congressman Boehner makes leadership look so easy, so fluid. You jsut wait until the herd starts to move then run up to the front and act like you’ve always been there.

    In the next term, I hope they make Boehner into a page for Darrel Issa, the man who had the courage and the patience to keep the forked stick on Holder’s slimy neck, not Boehner. We could have had this contempt citation vote 3 months ago, if there had been a conservative leading the house.

    Conservatives and Patriots! Put this cat out for good in 2013!

    • Rshill7

      You’ve a valid point there Mister Words. Timidity breeds more of the same. So does righteously indignant initiative. The latter trumps the former.

    • keyesforpres

      LMAO! Words definitely do NOT fail you!

      “You just wait until the herd starts to move then run up to the front and act like you’ve always been there.” Now, that’s a classic!!

      • kong1967

        This is why I liked Bachmann. She’s not afraid to lead even if it means getting battered around. Boehner….not so much.

        • She doesn’t cry near as much as he does. I love her.

          • kong1967

            She lost her support when Perry joined the race. I’ll never understand why it didn’t move right back when Perry completely bombed. I like her a lot more than Gingrich or Santorum (Romney is a given).

            • me too. 🙁

            • hbnolikeee

              she didn’t help herself with that vaccine remark…

        • keyesforpres

          Yeah, she was my first choice. I saw her speak a couple of times last year and she knew her stuff.

          I never understood why anyone would have supported Perry with his white washed version of islam he allowed into some Texas schools and his trying to build that super highway without compensating folks for their land.

          When she dropped out, I didn’t know who to support and then Santorum saw the light on illegals and went from a D to an A- with Numbers USA and he got the islam thing and flat out said o is doing this on purpose.

          • kong1967

            I was guilty of abandoning Bachmann for Perry because I had been hearing so much hype about him. However, when he tanked….badly….I went right back to Bachmann. Very few others did because she never recovered. Being so, I was forced to move to a choice between Santorum and Gingrich. Politics suck, lol.

            • keyesforpres

              I went to the Redstate conference last Aug. and met folks from Texas who told me how he is hated by many in TX because of his attempt at land grabbing and I also read Atlas Shrugs and it was Pamela Geller who had the actual white washed curriculum screen saved to her website. Good thing, because shortly after she exposed it, the links to it went dead!

              I helped get the word out here and one guy I met at a Santorum get together last year asked me to email him the curriculum. I did and he went to Perry’s get together in Conway, SC. He passed out about 40 copies. Funny thing, right after that he had to suddenly go back to TX to attend to the fires that had been raging for months! He skipped out on the SC debate in Columbia later that day. I’d like to think it was my acquaintance passing those flyers out that caused him to hightail it out of here. LOL.

              • kong1967

                Never know…may have been the reason. Even if it wasn’t, what you did was a good thing and could only have helped.

  • FutureOnePercent

    The words just dribble from his mouth… I’m surprised they made it all the way to the microphone.

    He exudes weakness and capitulation. I guess that’s why he speaks for the Republican Party and not the Tea Party.

    • keyesforpres

      LOL…well said!….and, I love your user name!!

  • carolt2

    This contempt vote should have been scheduled in mid 2011. Brian Terry was killed in December 2010, if my memory is correct. Holder is as corrupt as his boss. They should both be in jail.
    As Mark Levin says, Obama is acting as if he’s an imperial president. I have had enough of this fool in The White House.

    • Mark is absolutely correct…and this “imperial President” has no clothes.

      • keyesforpres

        Yeah, he’s been TOTALLY naked since he was sworn in and only folks like Alan Keyes have had the guts to point and say, “Look the emperor has no clothes on!”!!!!

  • rich wojcik

    he’s still not fully awaken….TELL US ALL YOU KNOW, Boehner !!!!
    “Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissent says it all:

    “The most important point is that Arizona is entitled to have “its own immigration policy” – including a more rigorous enforcement policy – so long as that does not conflict with Federal law.””

  • OK…John. Next step is to get-a-pair and introduce articles of impeachment against Holder.

  • WordsFailMe

    How stupid do you have to be to be a Democrat/Liberal/member of the Obama administration? Is a lobotomy required or are some liberals just lucky, lack of oxygen in the birth canal, falls from high chairs or genetics?

    The first day the president dufus declares Executive Privilege sealing the DOJ documents. The next day the same group of back-water clod-hopping nincompoops from a hazradous waste dump in Chicago show up with 30 pages that are somehow not covered by the EP declaration. Which is it morons? Girls rules again, Obamama? (No offense meant here.)

    How do these people get through college and law school? Do they get a handicap on their score on their DMV tests?

    Oops. There I go again, hammering the obvious.

    • NYGino

      How do they get through college? Starts out with advancement through grade school, regardless of what they didn’t learn, so they don’t get their precious self esteem bruised, then onward to college where affirmative action picks it up from there. After all, if you can just lie a little bit, say you are 1/32 Cherokee, even an idiot will be taken care of and all’s well in academia.

  • kong1967

    I am glad they aren’t coming out and flat out saying that Obama was framing the gun shops….at least at this point. Without proof it would look like a political attack. Once we get the proof of what we already know to be true…..pound them s.o.b.’s over the head with it. The Obama team is the most crooked and criminal posse ever seen in the WH.

  • Sober_Thinking

    “Mr. Boehner, what is the response from the House or GOP to pResident Obama’s recent lawlessness and when will you guys begin impeachment proceedings?”

  • November 2012. Hang in their Americans your future is freedom and liberty.

  • drphibes

    Thank you, John. I take back all the bad things I’ve said about you.

  • Nukeman60

    Whoa. That Boehner Halloween costume that Trey Gowdy used in this video was really lifelike.

    What’s that you say? It was really Boehner? Who woulda’ thought?
