This is a trailer for Accuracy in Media’s upcoming investigation called Religious Liberty and The Birth Control Mandate and it features Rep. Joe Walsh discussing the attack on religious liberty by ObamaCare. But out of all the good stuff he says in this clip, I love it when he says that if he were Speaker, that he’d bring ObamaCare up for repeal every month. And I completely agree.

This has been in part my problem with Boehner, that he sees no reason to continue to go after ObamaCare because he did it once, and it’s done. Tell me, how many people in the public arena will remember that they voted to repeal ObamaCare when they first came into office? Probably very few. I’ve always believed that we must constantly make the point of how radical and unconstitutional ObamaCare is, that we continue to bring it up and make it a point of discussion for repeal because it MUST be repealed and the public must know it. It’s a show of strength to do it and it communicates to the public that the Congress is firm in its goal to repeal this unconstitutional monstrosity. And it offers the public hope.

But Boehner is weak. He is all about compromise and good press. He was the wrong guy for the job during this difficult time of gridlock.

At any rate, this is a great clip and I can’t wait to see the whole investigation:

    MY congressman is sooo right. You have to keep after obamascare, you don’t go after it once and drop it. Liberals never drop their ideas, eventually they pass them come h3ll or high water.

        Good for Newt, I really respect the way he can define the issue.

        • Anonymous

          Have to disagree, here. Newt let Spin-doctor-opolis move the football twice before he tried to kick it. I would never let the lib host get away with those lies, which is why people like me aren’t on these shows.

          There is no way I would let him ever state what is not in “the bill.” I know he hasn’t read whatever it is he is talking about.

          Also, my recollection is that there were three separate bills in the Senate and three in the House – six. So, whatever it was Step-in-the-poopoo was calling “the bill” at that time, probably wasn’t even the one from the Baucus Cmte that ended up passing.

      Really… consider the whole battle in California over gay marriage – even though a court ruled against it, libtards keep picking at the scab, never allowing it to heal. And eventually, it’ll become infected… as it already has.

      I agree, don’t let this slip away. FIGHT!

    I wrote my congressman Tim Griffin about supporting Boehner. I told him that I know a weak person when I see one, and Boehner is WEAK.
    I asked would he vote/support for Boehner as speaker next term? To which he replied there is no one challenging Boehner. No one. Period. We don’t get to pick who we want. We only get to pick from the limited choices given.
    ABO for President.
    ABB for Speaker.

      If that’s true, Cantor is up next and he’s just a weak as Boehner is. The his antiquated rule which rewards seniority to the house leadership positions is killing the party and any chance to revese what this clown is doing.

      Either throw them all out and start fresh or force them out using armed force. Our Republic is in dire need of constitutionalists now wishy washy weak go along to get along pond scum.

      If we can at least elect a conservative president and win majorities in the Senate and keep the one in the House… then at least THEY can hold Boehner’s feet to the fire! He is weak when he is challenged. With GOP majorities, he won’t be. It will still be nice if somebody ran against him. This good o’ boy stuff of the next person in line and its their turn (just as the establishment is trying to do with Romney) is not putting America’s best interest first – it is just playing politics and it must end!

    Boehner has been weak in everything he’s done. He should go now, if not yesterday. I read about a possible rumor that he may cut a deal to make ‘Fast and Furious’ go away. It’s only a rumor right now and his office denies it, but let’s watch and see what happens now that it has been mentioned.

      If he is doing this, he is complicit in murder. He will have blood on his hands. He needs to know we’re watching. Here’s another good place to get information on this. John Boehner is contributing to the destruction of this nation. I called his office and told them I blamed him and Cantor for the attacks on the church. Because of this.

        agree 100%. The Repbulicans in the House just take it on the chin everytime Obama doesn’t get something accomplished and blames the House Republicans for not trying to get things done even when Obamas plans get no support from Democrats in the Senate and before Republicans had any control in congress Obama still couldn’t get anything done.

    I love this guy. The House members need to ask John Boehner to resign. Mark Levin talked about what Boehner should be doing tonight, including articles of impeachment, and Boehner is doing nothing. Does he drink too much? Is he a coward? Is he just not that smart? Truthfully, I think he belongs behind a deli counter at the local Seven Eleven than in the speakers chair. This guy is complicit in the damage being done.

    • Anonymous

      I agree, however it’s the Senates job to being articles of impeachment. Though they should still call for it and bring it up as an issue though.

  • Is_Sense_Common

    He’s blaming the dems, which isn’t wrong, but he needs to call the RINO’s out. Get Boehner the heck out of the Speaker of the House position! He’s worthless and tone-deaf. Maybe he can’t hear us screaming out here because he’s too busy boo-hooing. I’ve had it!! And I know you have too. Ugh.

    “If I were Speaker…”

    “… bring ObamaCare up for repeal every month.”

    It’s true, House Speaker Boehner has “gotta go”… with Senator McConnell.

    And, there is a much BIGGER problem for our Republic.

    Now, what’s the difference between Communist China and the Republic of America?

    1st –
    Communist China does NOT have a go-along-to-get-along Speaker of the House and a Senate that is barely breathing.

    2nd –
    Communist China does NOT have a “Dear Leader” who wants to cripple the communist state.

    3rd –
    Communist China does NOT have a “Dear Leader” who wants to “transform” China from a collectivist commune into an individualist republic.

    4th –
    America DOES have a “Dear Leader” who wants to “transform” our Republic from an “individualist” constitutional republic into a “collectivist” commune democracy.

    Yup, he’s weak and indecisive. He is the obstructionist in COngress.

    There’s talk that Boehner may be trying to broker a deal where Fast and Furious is concerned, muzzling Darrel Issa. Looks like HOlder and Obama got yet another pass…….

    Primary Boehner!

  • Anonymous

    AMEN

    Why, with a majority in the house, do they not propose a repeal on ObamaCare every chance they get? Why don’t they repeal Dodd-Frank every chance they get? Why do they not formally call the administration to the carpet for unconstitutional recess appointments? Why don’t they call him formally to the carpet for getting around stricken bills like cap and trade through abusive EPA regulation and stonewall tactics? Why don’t they take the fight to them? WHY???

    I truly believe that if we saw this fight happening, the voters at home would be heartened and emboldened to send up reinforcements in an election. Instead, we have voters (who would normally vote with you and me) sit back in an absolute daze with no feeling like anything they do will ever change anything. They believe that they are ALL complicit for our problems and that it doesn’t matter because nothing will change.

    It’s sick. Boehner, this is at your tanned feet. Save your tears.

    • http://profiles.google.com/ajtelles Art Telles

      “… formally call the administration to the carpet …”

      Another word for “call … carpet” is IMPEACH.

      The Presidential oath is to “… protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” and NOT to do an end-run around the Constitution by recess appointments while Congress is in session and NOT to mandate a contraception so-called “health care” on either the Catholic church or on the insurance providers.

      The Executive branch does NOT have that authority… aka unconstitutional.

      So…

      … throw the kitchen sink at the regime
      … throw the regime off it’s game
      … disrupt the regime by starting impeachment efforts in the House

      And, since the House has such a weak Speaker… at least get the impeachment effort on the congressional official record for the last 9 months of the regime… for the history books, of course.

    But………..Boehner is such a man of conviction. A tough guy. The guy who will stand up for us when it really counts. The founding fathers are his heros. :)

    Who else is as seasoned of a liar? Anyone with half a backbone, and the slightest bit of concern for the people of this country would do what the guy in this clip just said.

    it is up to us to pressure our representatives, to support true conservatives and to support a viable candidate to challenge all the old republicans. They are a large part of the problem. The vast majority of us agree the danger the progressives present is real and palpable but where is the counterpunch? Our current leadership is weak. We have to replace these entrenched duds in both Houses.

    Time for another Tea Party March on Washington.

    Past time.

  • Anonymous

    It’s a shame that only a select few “get it” in congress – amazingly, most of these enlightened congresspeople are part of the Tea Party and the freshman class of 2010. That tells me that in 2016, there has to be another alternative party to vote for. In this case, it should be a Tea Party.

    Boehner sucks so much as Speaker. Once again… put Allen West in that position and let’s turn this thing around.

    • Anonymous

      Yes, my friend, it IS time for a TEA PARTY! At first, I had high hopes for Boehner but decision after decision, vote after vote, he’s has shown that he is in over his head and skill level, much like Obama as president is in over his head.
      Palin called it right in her speech at CPAC, time to promote Tea Party folks into the leadership.
      The dems and the gop no longer represent anyone but themselves. I pray for a huge turnover in the coming elections!

  • Anonymous

    John Boehner is a “go along to get along” guy and has been a part of the problem – not the solution. He talked a good line when he wanted the speakership, but he has not followed through on anything and clearly cares more about his career and what the liberal networks will say than what is Constitutional and best for America! If we were following the Constitution there would be charges of impeachment for those like Obama and Sebelius for violating their oaths of office!
