Time to get rid of Boehner. Another lifelong politician who doesn't represent the people. If you too tired Mr. Speaker move aside
Have said it before and will say it again "America Get Your Guns". You've surrendered your borders, your freedoms and your daughters. You now have "coalitions" of Dems, Libs, Progressives, LGBT running your country and telling you you're stupid or demented if you believe in God. But hey are sane when they are willing and brave enough to kill unborn babies but not the enemies of our nation. How long before we have abortion extend throughout the first year of a newborn's life?
Our elections are not decided by the "Independent" vote but by the votes of illegal aliens and illegally voting dead people (or are the dead still considered valid registered voters?).
Time is probably coming when true American Patriots will have to once again fight to win back Liberty and Freedom. Or do you believe you should be obligated to pay a fine/tax just for being born and existing? Well, that's what obamacare forces upon you. This is Freedom?
Are you among the masses who will just sit and wait until they come to your door to take what you have worked for because others are "entitled" to their "fair share"? Even if they didn't bother to work and earn it. Oh, but since you've already surrendered your daugthers it's okay to surrender the rest of your life's efforts. And may as well leave the door open till the next group feels "entitled" to "redistribute" anything remaining of your possesions. After all it's "not fair" for you to have anything if someone else doesn't. It doesn't matter if you worked for it and they didn't.
It's hard to look at your "average" person today and envision them as the same "average" people that stood up and fought for and established this nation. When did the people of this nation turn into the "sheeple of this nation"?
Boehner is a spineless gutless weasel of a RINO, and must go, period !!
Article "Tea Party Vows To Take Over GOP"
They vowed to wage a war to put the Tea Party in charge of the Republican Party by the time it nominates its next presidential candidate.
“The battle to take over the Republican Party begins today and the failed Republican leadership should resign,” said Richard Viguerie, a top Tea Party Conservative activist.
"Obama Re-election Cause for Revolution — The Obama Regime must be dismantled !" unquote
House Republican Study Committee (RSC)- led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), to fight the GOP Establishment of Boehner, to have more influence over the Republican party.
Boehner is a coward and needs to be replaced. All of the so called Republican leadership is spineless. They shun the Tea Party so they can hold on to their positions.
Another reason you need to go. If he had done anything right we would not have this albatross around our necks in the first place. Gromer, Chavitz, Cantor, Ryan all would have done better at fighting this and the rest of the mess we are in. Goodbye Boehner.
We, the Tea Party, indirectly put Boehner in his current position. HE NEEDS TO GO. We all need to e-mail as many republicans in the House and Senate and the RNC and tell them they won't get a dime of our money unless Boehner is OUT!!!!!!!!
I called his office and left a message, they wouldn't actually answer any call, I tried multiple times to get a live person. I told Boehner it was time for him to move to the Democrat party, then he wouldn't have to pretend any more. We need our own purge. It is time to run hard against the "Democrhinos" in the primary and kick the bums out. Boehner is about saving his own job, he doesn't care about any of us or America.
America needs Speaker Boehner to commit to an act of extreme patriotism in our war against the Marxist Socialism of our presidential pretender.
He should/could/ heroically turn the lemon of losing this presidential election into the lemonade of drafting Paul Ryan into a special appointment to a tempory speakership so that Obama's Marxist treasure-destroying gamesmanship can be prevented from intentionally destroying the viability of the American economy for generations to come.
In the face of a dumbed-down "Gimme-Gimme", public, this is an heroic and historic strategy by both men to blow up the plans of a renegade collectivist political ascendency.
This contest of intellect and reason as opposed to the just completed, "Zombie Dance", of a decaying American educational/cultural product may be liberty's last gasp against an emergent and absurd anarchical rule by the migratory hordes of the third world.
BTW this conversation is rapidly reaching beyond the ken of Sean Hannity
I am ready to leave the Republican party should Boehner stay in as House Speaker. He is as useful as tits on a bull.
Help, calling the House of Representatives, can you guys please mount a charge on behalf of the 49% of the people who still think Ameerica should be governed by the Constitution. Can you please pull a mutiny and replace the current speaker. Can you do this for America, can you please pick someone who is going to fight for what is right rather than capitulate at every turn. We beg you to interced for us and put this RINO out to pasture.
Parts of Obamacare are supposed to be going back to the Supreme Court for a decision of the legality. Why is Boehner being like a jellyfish with no backbone.
I am disgusted and discouraged with the republican party, they have the right choices for candidates but let the lamestream media trash them (Allen West, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Condoleeza Rice). The media was the biggest problem. The NY Daily News and NY Newsday trashed Romney throughout the campaign and spoke highly of Obama, then at the last minute both newspapers endorsed Romney...too little, too late. And I would be willing that they planned it to happen this way.
Can you imagine if Joe Biden runs in 2016 and wins? Oh my God what a dope he is. He NEEDS teleprompters, with all the gaffes he spewed out of his blowhard mouth.
obamacare is the law of the land" yeah no kidding and he's rolling over and giving up. Fast and Furious is coming to a close, zero push from the Speaker, he could have been much more forceful in the investigation.
And now he is going to sell out America with amnesty.
Romney could not be elected for the above reasons. He wanted to stop obamacare, he was pushing for a deeper insight to the gun running operation, and he had a program regarding immigration.
Boehner blathers and stomps his feet and pounds his chest--it's all theatrics. Boehner is the ENABLER to obama for the destruction of America. It is pretty obvious.
Yeah, he's giving up because the GOP has lost, even though his little wing of the GOP lost less seats than most.
He's going to fight battles he can win.
You're suggesting he be like an admiral who's had a fleet sunk by the enemy, and he should send a couple destroyers and a frigate back in against the enemy fleet "just because".
Well for all practical purposes, he is right. As speaker he has to prioritize. It is totally useless for him to chew up any more time on that issue.
There is one more chance in the courts to overturn. Since Roberts declared that the Mandate is unconstitutional as a mandate but not as a Tax, some bright someone noticed if it is a TAX, then ObamaCare is unconstitutional. Why? It originated in the Senate. The constitution is totally clear that all Tax legislation has to originate in the House.
This isn't an angle I've been following closely.
While it's totally logical, and I'm a fan of consistency, if there's one thing I don't have confidence in, it's humans' commitment to logical consistency.
I have a feeling the Supreme Court will find a way, pure bullsh*t of course, to go along with the electorate and their original decision and let it stand.
No matter how little sense that makes.
Just tryin' to post something printable by TRS...
WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL THAT G@DD&M RINO Boehner UP WHICH PART OF HIS ANATOMY TO SHOVE IT!
(ahhh sayin' that complete with the unprintable words here makes me feel soooo much better)
Reasons the GOP lost the election?
1. Conservatives & Tea Party types stayed home - just couldn't vote for a RINO like Romney. Point is in order to win, GOP needs to put up a real Tea Party / Libertarian conservative. Stop worrying about being nice to "liberals" as they aint gonna vote fer 'ya anyway.
2. GOP RINO elitist rulers view the Tea Party, who resurrected them in 2010, as the greater enemy than the obamessiah. The Tea Party folks are viewed as the greatest threat to them, not the democrats or the obamessiah. The GOP RINO leadership were determined to get the Tea Party types out of their party at any and all costs. Guess who they really supported and opposed. Wonder why Sarah Palin and other conservatives weren't at the GOP convention? I don't.
The horse manure about illegal immigrant amnesty and all the other nonsense being pontificated in the libfag lamestream median is just horse manure. IT STINKS BIGTIME!
She wasn't there because she never endorsed Romney for president. What was he supposed to do? Give her a speaking role so that every *sshole in the media could laugh at him. If she ever decided to run which I don't think she will because she wouldn't like the heat or she thinks she might not win what should Romney do? I liked Sarah a great deal but I did not like her non endorsement of Romney. I hope it was due to her job at Fox. I don't know who the tea party candidate was in Missouri, I know Sarah endorsed the woman in the repub primary and she lost. Seems like her clout is waning. Murdock the tea party candidate in Indiana lost and was a disaster. Romney won both of these states handily yet these two lost. Maybe something is wrong with the tea party. They started out as fiscal conservatives with debt reduction and balanced budget issues. that is what attracted me. They were not supposed to be about social issues. How did they end up with Atkins and Murdick? Were they flim flamed by those two?
The GOP will never do that, Yazz. If we want a third party, with Tea Party principles, we have that job for ourselves.
Couldn't watch the whole thing. He sucks.
Beohner, you suck!! You are so weak, you capitulate to the left every time! All they have to do is say you're not passing their plan so nothing is getting done and you cave!! Get out of the way and let a real conservative get there and begin to help fix this country!!!
By the way I've already written my Congresswoman telling her he needs to go among other things. Haven't heard back yet.
Exactly, my friend.
And that's the reason the GOP-E hated Newt as well. He forced the GOP to fight for us, and they had much rather be thought of as good losers.
• stop taking the '3 million republicans didn't vote for Romney' as gospel.
It isn't true.
Half of those votes went to third-party candidates, so we are talking about 1.5 million votes. Now look at the reports which came in on 6/11, with people queuing, with enthusiasm. Remember the huge crowds turning out for Romney. And then ask yourselves if it is really inconceivable that, after all the reports we heard of shenanigans at the polling stations, these numbers were 'vanished'. When people talked about 99% of votes in some districts in Pennsylvania going for Obama, alarm bells should have rung.
Do you really think Allen West was the only candidate where underhand dealings did take place? Stop believing what the corrupt MSM say and write!
Though I was greatly disappointed with the outcome, the one thing that did not change for me was my conservative principles. Listening to Diane Sawyer in how she ask the question and her body language, it was as if a mother was asking a child are you going to misbehave again and Boehner's answer was like a child telling his mother, "No I won't do it again".
What has become clear after some of my own soul searching is that many people who usually vote Republican stayed home. Let them (Republicans) continue with their inane and flawed principles that aren't conservative and I will stay at home the next election cycle.
BTW - I hope they elect another speaker, but with more stupidity they will more than likely keep him.
What a crock of........!! If that's the case, Boehner, why not give Obama all the tax increases he wants? Give him a $7 trillion debt ceiling increase. I mean, hey, we lost so give him what he wants.
No, you idiot. You are in office for a reason. You are not there to be an Obama rollover. Do your job and try to protect the country from an overextended liberal agenda. Otherwise we just as well let a Democrat have your job. You're fired, Boehner!
It's already the law of the land. He's stating a fact.
How do you imagine he's going to overturn it with the Supreme Court having given it the A-OK, Obama having won re-election, and the Democrats having increased their hold over the Senate in a year when far more D than R Senate seats were up for grabs?
Pray tell me how you expect him to accomplish what you desire. Be specific.
Oh -- and the part of the election that went OK for Republicans was in Congress: Boehner's domain. So maybe give the guy a bit of credit.
The Roberts decision gives the Government the right to tax anything it wishes but the Constitution does not give that power to the Government court opinion or not "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration." Income can be taxed not a citizens purchases that would be left to the States and the opinion never addressed the Government claiming it has the authority to demand a citizen purchase anything the Government wishes a citizen to purchase.... The court made a decision so flawed and not grounded in the Constitution giving the Government the power to fine a citizen and then claim it's a tax which does not hold any resemblance to the collecting taxes on incomes in Amendment 16 of the Constitution...
And the supreme Law of the land states the opposite of the courts decision... You may think the judges are gods but they are not and the decision is UN Constitutional period... And the States will need to address that soon not Boehner... Because the Constitution is the Law of the land not court opinions even though we in this country act like a decision made by a court with no regard to the Constitutions text is somehow correct law...
Also Boehner could use every power that belongs to the House... Sam you act as if the Senate can pass bills without the Houses approval - so Boehner should have used that leverage but he decided to roll over and play dead and give the Senate what ever it wants to send to the president a House approval... And he should of demanded impeachment of the president and Holder and impeached them both... But he chose to stay quiet on that also.... The president would not have been convicted by the Senate but both men would have been impeached sending the message the House is a branch of Government that has powers it can use and will....
>>> Sam you act as if the Senate can pass bills without the Houses approval
No, but it already passed.
>>> He should of demanded impeachment of the president and Holder and impeached them both
The problem with that is we couldn't have convicted them in the Senate regardless of the evidence. And it would probably have hurt us politically. At least that was the thinking.
Lol, I'm not giving Boehner any credit. I don't like the guy. He's Mr. Compromise (away our values).
Obamacare may be the law of the land, but there is a lawsuit in the works. The Supreme Court...actually Roberts...called it constitutional on the grounds that it was a tax bill. It's an illegal tax bill because tax bills must be created by Congress, not the Senate.
I don't care what it takes to make the law impotent. Defund it. Congress has the power to do that, and we have control of Congress. Oh, and that's "Boehner's domain".
Yes, I believe that's Obama's goal anyway.
It's not really even a slippery slope. Barney Frank and Obama are on video saying that's the goal. Obamacare is just a stepping stone to force private health insurance out of business and to end employer based health insurance. Right out of the horse's mouth.
Obamacare is a trojan horse.
Got you on the Slippery Slope philosophy kong. Got it. 0bama won and we can all hate this and I do. There are no more options. We are stuck with it. Since the bill is packed with IRS regs, I have always thought that the ultimate destination is means testing for health care. HHS bureaucrat with your IRS records, "I see you have $50,000 in saving, you can pay for the $40,000 knee replacement. Next..." There is no way faster to ruin the wealth of America. And that is the ultimate goal.
Boehner's hands are tied because he's compromised already. Newt would have kicked some rears and protected the people's interests. Obamacare is an economic/social toxin as are any dealings with Islam and China. In the long run, Obama's support for abortion and homosexuality will also kill the economy. Both increase physical, mental and social illness. Russia is begging and bribing women to have babies after decades of killing off unborn innocent lives through abortion in that country. China is resorting to stealing women because of their abortion policy. All evil breeds poverty and misery in the end.
I do understand the situation. The problem is...trimming the bill is not enough. We do not have socialized medicine....yet. They are pushing the envelope. This bill is designed to destroy the private health insurance system so Democats can walk right in with a single-payer system. We have to stop that from happening, and we have to stop them from destroying private health insurance.
I will not accept your notion that "oh, well....it's here and it's not going away so you just as well get used to it". No, this bill has an intended outcome, and Obamacare is not the intended outcome. It's a stepping stone.
Once you accept it you lose the drive to take it out down the road.
I don't think you are fully appraised of the situation.
Now that this election has determined ObamaCare is going to be implemented, it's not going to be taken out, certainly not by Boehner or anyone else who you could put in his position next.
No nation in history has put into place, then removed, a national healthcare scheme. It, as Mark Steyn points out, fundamentally transforms the nature of the relationship between the people to the government.
The GOP will win elections again, just like conservative parties do in Canada, Britain, Spain, Italy, France, etc.
But national healthcare in America is a fact of life now. Boehner understands this. Whether you do or not, it's going to stay, at least until the financial collapse of the Republic.
But it ain't going to be overturned legislatively until then. And obviously Boehner has a duty to trim where he can, as he said he's going to in this video, and try to prevent this financial collapse.
I can't replace Boehner. I don't get to vote him out.
My anger with Boehner is long standing. I know he can't do much to stop Obamacare, but I don't want to see him roll over and play dead. Once you accept it you lose the drive to take it out down the road. That's how creeping incrementalism works. People get used to it and accept it.
People didn't vote to overturn Obamacare because all they see up to this point are the good things about it. The Democrat party intentionally held off the impacts of it until after the election. They aren't stupid. There are some very bad things coming because of this bill, but since people don't see them happening now Obamacare must be ok. The consequences are going to start showing up.....after people already voted. Unless they are already dependent on government, people are going to regret letting this bill continue.
He knows his hands are tied. In that video, he was open to doing a few things here and there to address the worst of it, but the fact of the matter is, he doesn't have the Senate or Presidency or Supreme Court on his side, and the electorate did not vote to overturn ObamaCare.
Fine, you'll take the GOP failure out on Boehner. But seriously, I don't think he's the problem.
Replace him with anyone you want -- and it's entirely your right to do so -- and they're not going to overturn ObamaCare either.
This knucklehead is one of the reasons why our party is in trouble. He obviously doesn't live up to his last name because he sounds really limp to me.
He needs to go along with the rest of the RINOs. RINOs can't win because they don't know how to fight. When they do win, they remain vulnerable and some are a heartbeat away from switching political parties.
Did you not notice the Roberts decision and the election?
It's called living in the real world. You don't like ObamaCare, win elections or get a new country, by secession or elsewhere.
"Law of the land."
Well duh. That's just stating a fact.
Boehner can't do anything. Obama and Reid have all the cards and a loving state sponsored media. We are F'd. Thanks "conservatives".
As long as these politicians know how to "steal" elections and get reelected (like Harry Reid and Obama) - they will continue to promise the stupid electorate the world and thumb their noses at the rest of us who know they are worthless.
The testimony is not from yesterday like the YouTube poster said so he is a liar.
Further, it's obvious he's a lunatic. Read his all-caps screed.
So I don't know whether you're a troll or fell for a hoax, but your comment is way off base.
Thanks for the link, but the mobile youtube link wouldn't work in Firefox on my laptop, so I found the normal link.
With extreme credulity like this, no wonder the Republican Party lost the election and Mitt Romney was shellshocked when it happened.
It was a disaster all around. ORCA. What a clusterf*ck.
The Romney campaign had no idea they could lose, had not even written a possible concession speech, when the polls had showed him bleeding momentum since Sandy hit?
And both the state and federal RCP average polls showed him losing?
And they didn't have a CLUE? It came as a total surprise?
The Democrats were more in touch with reality. Far more.
And ran a massively more competent campaign, especially turnout campaign.
If this degree of self-delusion continues, and it will, the Republicans are going to be screwed for the forseeable future.
The President -- whom I despise(d) by the way -- was at least prepared. He didn't want to lose, but had one foot in the real world just in case, and had prepared a concession speech.
The GOP somehow nominated a candidate who is effectively delusional, as it turned out. I thought Mitt Romney was sane and competent. It's not looking that way.
The testimony is from 2004, and was investigating alleged Republican vote tempering in Ohio.
The YouTube poster is a liar who claimed it's testimony from yesterday.
Do you remember any Senate hearings scheduled for the day after the election? Because I don't, actually.
Further the YouTube poster is obviously crazy -- read his all caps video description.
