Senate Conservatives Fund: Boehner must be replaced!

The Senate Conservatives fund is targeting Boehner’s speakership, trying to get at least 15 people to vote against Boehner next time around which would keep him from getting the speakership again:

THE HILL – The Senate Conservatives Fund is calling on House Republicans to force out House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), taking aim at Boehner’s support of a clean debt ceiling hike.

“John Boehner must be replaced as Speaker of the House,” the group says in an email to supporters.

The group is rallying supporters to the website, looking to pressure House Republicans to vote against Boehner next January. Its goal is to get 15 House Republicans to support the cause, which if there’s no change in the balance of the House would leave Boehner short of the 218 votes he needs for another term as Speaker.

“Conservatives helped John Boehner become Speaker, but he has ignored us and helped President Obama enact his liberal agenda,” the website says. “Instead of using the House majority to stop bad legislation, Speaker Boehner has used it to increase spending, raise the debt limit, increase taxes, pass a bloated farm bill, and fund the implementation of Obamacare. Instead of fighting for conservative principles, Speaker Boehner has repeatedly surrendered to the Democrats.”

    Just can’t understand why he(Boehner) can’t see it. He’s got to know he’s almost worthless as speaker so why doesn’t or didn’t voluntarily step aside for the good of the party???????

    • Longiron

      Likes the attention and the Extortion money he is getting . Where else would that happen for a guy like Booner ???

  • Sentinel

    I’m pleased to see this push to eject Boner-the-idiot. Boehner is a complete waste of skin… KICK HIM OUT! I hope this gets legs and people rise up against these monsters. Boehner is a liar and a traitor.

  • Wigglesworth

    Yes Boehner must go. Also, amnesty isn’t dead so it could help on that front too. If Cantor replaces him we won’t be any better off though.

      The elephants, the donkeys and the state media decided it is best to wait until after the election to wield the final blow to our sovereignty.

  • Conservator1

    Boehner didn’t want to go BIG with the Tea Party conservatives caucus and the base of the GOP. He surrenders quickly as usual and then has the audacity to ask Democrats to support his fellow RINOs’ on clean debt ceiling.

    The so-called obstructive party and their leadership in reality support BIG GOVERNMENT and prefer to battle their base than Obama. – there time is coming cause we WON’T FORGET in November.

    This man must go or at the very least, a representative of the Tea Party caucus should challenge his Speakership NOW. Either Louie Gohmert of Texas or Tom Price of Georgia would be great House Speakers who will represent conservative values and principles on fiscal issues.

  • brazen_infidel

    He’s been doing his best to hand the speakership back to Pelosi.

      He’s been doing his best to make us think Pelosi is the speaker.

      Truer than most care to know.

  • kong1967

    Yeah, as long as the don’t vote for McCain.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    John Bonehead was a terrible choice as the SOH. He acts more like a Dimocrap than a Republican and he needs to go back to wherever he came from.

  • $73426719

    Long overdue. The crying bitch should ha never been Speaker! Despicable, treacherous, loathsome hunk of fecal trash.

    • BearNJ

      Don’t sugarcoat it LOL.

    Put some white makeup on his face with a big red paste-on nose and you would have “Boo Hoo the Treasonous Clown”.

    If only. He went on TV several times to criticize us. Tell us to shut up.

    • Conniption Fitz

      The Pansy Party establishment insisted on Boehner.
      Then Obama made Boehner his very own patsy.

      Both Boehner and the Bushites are despicable and guilty of destroying this country.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Banish Boehner.

  • RepublicanYo

    I’m going to be very disappointed if we can’t find 15 people to vote against the B.

  • StandProudNow

    Any good candidates to replace him?

    • stage9

      He’s out of Ohio. Doubtful.

    • iaintlyin

      Trey Gowdy

      • Wow. Great idea. Trey Gowdy the amnesty shill. Great party.

  • mikeinidaho

    I said the very same thing right after that POS was elected speaker the first time. He is a useless Obama kissazz and works for the C of C, not the American people.
    A pox on him, every other RINO and all the Demunists in DC.

  • notsofastthere

    Senate Conservatives Fund is trying to get rid of Boehner and McConnell. So that’s where my contributions are going.

  • Subie201

    Boehner is a phony, lying, weak, ugly tanning, cigarette smoking, boozing, bUtt kissing, loser!!! Ohio…primary this traitor!

  • mike3e4r7

    Boehner doesn’t even try anymore to hide the fact that he embraces the opposition, and is at war with the party base – a traitor to his party and to his country. Boehner must be primaried and if he survives his primary, the conservatives in Boehner’s district need to vote for his Democrat opponant, en masse. That is the only way to ensure that he won’t be speaker next year.

  • ikemen1

    Too funny, you actually think you got a say in this evil political arena.. Lol

    • marcus3127

      That’s the spirit, just give up.

  • Liberals_are_idiots

    I hope conservatives have the strength to vote against him!

    People, tell everybody to get out and vote in Nov…..

    DO NOT VOTE FOR ANY democrat’s

  • ApplePie101

    ‘Conservatives helped John Boehner become speaker’. Yes, that was the first mistake, but by 2013, they had 2 years of proof–debt ceiling hikes, ‘fiscal cliffs’, continued funding for Obamacare–still they voted to keep Boehner in the speaker’s chair and allow him to do more collaborative damage with the O. administration. Reap what ye hath sown, you feckless pols. You can’t distance yourselves from your culpability for this mess.

  • Peechee

    Unfortunately, many of our leaders who claim to represent Tea-Party Conservatives do not understand that their Civil Liberties are being

    slowly taken away from them as Corporate America and the U.S.Chamber of Commerce reduces middle class Americans to a lower living standard which includes reduced wages and limited employment mobility. Please take a moment and do yourself a big favor and see how Conservatives are being tricked and fooled by Big Corporate interests. These are the same interests that are paying for Rino Republicans like Boehner to desert Conservative Values and promote the Oligarch Elititsts interests over middle class Americans. Once you watch this you will think differently about what is really means to be a Conservative and this will make you made as Hell.

    I’m still rewinding to 2010 when we first set this idiot up as Speaker. I knew he’d end up being a big crap bag of progressivism. The second I found out, I knew we’d been had. No victory in 2010. Merely more progressives. ya-ay… D-:<

  • This is precisely why I left the GOP, and hate Republicans, now. I hate them, almost as much as I hate the DNC. They are despicable, worthless scum and cowards.

  • Peechee

    “The base has plenty of reasons to doubt everything Boehner says, and now a good number have it on their, “list of things to do in 2014″ to oust him as Speaker.

    The Republican Party base is consistently smeared by people like Bill O’Reilly, and the good, moral backbone and workhorses of the so-called “party of no,” don’t deserve it. Just like they didn’t deserve being called a bunch of “Bible thumpers,” when it came to gay marriage, and exposed him for unclear thinking and the Constitutional matters that that debate brought up.

    Incidentally, I’m not sure Bill O’Reilly knows what a quisling is. He started off his pinhead segment saying that he believes Boehner is a secret Democrat, and a quisling. Boehner would be a quisling if he made a deal with the Democrats, gave them everything they wanted, and then told us it was for our own good, which is still possible and remains to be seen, but right now, this event does not expose Boehner as a quisling.

    Not only that, but O’Reilly says that Boehner should have a plan of his own, which is absolutely true, but the main sticking points for conservatives are border security, and no amnesty. Boehner and almost the entire Republican Party are being lobbied strenuously by the Chamber of Commerce, who doesn’t give a whit about what is fair, as long as they get cheap labor. So, Boehner isn’t about to do the right thing, and stick to his guns on border security and unfair cutting in line, because he is on the side of the CoC who dislike the tea party faction of the party, just like Boehner.

    I’m part of the base, and there is quite the upheaval right now, but I think it will iron itself out over the coming months, simply because people will be busy working for the campaigns they believe in, and won’t have time to sit and wonder, “gee, are we saying ‘no’ too much?” These kind of suggestions from O’Reilly and others who are not part of the Republican base really fall on deaf ears because even though his show is called the Factor, his musings are really not a factor when it comes to the direction of the Party he doesn’t identify with.” –Jen Kuznicki

    re call John Boehner! I have been saying this for one year! February 2014

  • Tim McCarthy

    Bye bye Boehner. Enjoy your retirement.

    • Mark Muylaert

      The sad part Tim is he will enjoy retirement on our dime. All the benefits congress has given to themselves is sickening.

      • ConservativeNotRepublican

        And with some favors from the Commerce Commies.

        what the taxpayers giveth…….THE TAXPAYERS CAN TAKETH AWAY

  • ordinary american

    The moment Boehner played golf with Obama was the day, I changed my party affiliation from republican to independent. I stopped all contributions to any republican candidate or republican group. I will only give my money and time to a genuine conservative or Tea Party supporter. Eric Gurr will get money from me as has Matt Bevin. Boehner, you need to spend all your time on the golf courses. You are not needed in the Whore House of Representatives. At least Pelosi stood up to Bush! You are not a Speaker of the House…you are a “Squeeker” of our house. And, we need to get rid of you.

  • Ag8tor

    See if ANY of them have the stones to take him on.


    If they can’t do the right thing they should get OUT . what is so hard about doing the right thing .

  • BearNJ

    This is also a test of the conservatives in the House. Will they rise up and show some guts and boot Boehner before he destroys the GOP ? Once amnesty is done its over. They should have moved on him last year. He’s lied to them ever since on his promises.

  • Barbara

    Boehner ‘sleeps with the enemy’!

  • Lynn Graham

    the good people of Ohio can stop all this nonsense……elect a responsible representative…..and ole jonny boy is done

  • johnholliday

    Boehner did the right thing. The GOP can’t win that fight and it would only bring more pain as it did last time.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      What you just said, is the same give up attitude that all the rinos in Washington have had for a long time. When are we supposed to take a stand?

      • johnholliday

        No. Choose your fights. We can take the Senate but not if the public reacts again to a shutdown as before. Is that what you want? To lose a chance at taking the Senate?

        • W Dawes

          No One felt the last shutdown, nor the last 23 shutdowns in our history. That is just more RINO, being afraid of Democrap, talk

  • proudhispanicconservative

    It will never happen, people like the speaker have been wheeling and dealing for a long time, so I’m pretty sure that if he did this, he did it because he knew that his speakership is safe. I also would like to add that if by any chance we were able to remove him I’m pretty sure that Cantor and or another the rino is lining up behind him to take his place and it will be business as usual with the aristocracy in Washington.

  • W Dawes

    Get the “Crying Man” out of there!!

  • gardenSalsa64

    Where governments are not limited to particular types of action, such as minimizing coercion, their centralized power undermines liberty.

  • Tim McCarthy

    Review every department. Abolish those unneeded. Revisit tax laws. Institute a flat tax. No deductions for anybody, anything. Abolish IRS, EPA, TSA, Dept. Of Commerce, Dept of Education, Dept. Of energy, close all WW2 bases in Europe and the Far East. Pay the debt down.
