    Default Boehner

    Does anybody else think Boehner looks like an amateur in all this? It's time for him to start aggressively holding o to the fire. Enough of the coddling. It reminds me of Romney in the second and third debates.

    Boehner is beltway GOP. What do you expect? They aspire to be Dems one day.


    Here's some food for thought:

    House Speaker John Boehner and GOP leadership have removed several conservative House members from their respective powerful committee positions, Breitbart News has learned.
    Effective next Congress, leadership pulled Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash and Arizona Republican Rep. David Schweikert off committees from which they could exert conservative pressure on fiscal matters. Amash and Huelskamp were pulled from the Budget Committee and Schweikert from the Financial Services Committee.

    It's a lose/lose for him. No matter what, unless they go along with the dems plan, they're going to blame the republicans for the economy. They need to step back, give the dems that they want and then in 2014 when the economy is in the shitter, they can say we told you so. It's better then giving Obama what he wants.
    If the dems can show the republicans in a bad light with this, the dems will win big in 2014 and then give Obama full power which will take us down.

    This is a no-win situation as the democrats still have the majority in the Senate plus have the executive branch to sign any spending or taxing legislation that comes forth that furthers the Cloward-Piven plan or ruining America into a third-world country, which all liberals want, based upon their blind vote.

    I guess we differ on this. They're going to blame the gop rgardless, it's been going on for 4-5 years at this point, it's nothing new. If the gop doesn't change their mo at this point they're done anyway. The economy has been in the shitter, and will stay in the shitter regardless of this fiscal cliff nonsense. It's kind of like watching norv turner, or marty shottenheimer(sp), lovey smith, etc. coach. The mo is just like last wee, which was like the week before as well as the year before. And the end result is the same. It really is the classic definition of insanity by einstien.

    Ps. No offense meant to charger, bears or chiefs fans. Lol.

    You make a really good point. I was aware of what boehner was in the beginning and still am. The reality is he's not any different then pelosi. He just down't spew the ridiculous nonsense she did.

    Anybody catch boehner on fox new? I sure sounded to me like he made a commitment. I hope he plays his hand and does it well....Either Boehner calls his bluff or just bend over and let zero prove
    that he is perfectly capable of wrecking our very way of life all on his own...Might as well get it over now.
    I just wish he wasn't so calm about this...Pound his fists a little...tell zero what he really thinks about
    playing this little game...

    guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free
    education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free
    utilities, and only law enforcement has guns. And believe it or
    not, such a place does, indeed, exist: It's called prison."

    I promised myself I was not going to watch the news for awhile after the election... I have not been able to break free yet. Unfortunately I don't think there is a damn thing the GOP can do at this point to come out clean. All the crazy left wing Dems go on the news and convince the followers that this is all about the wealthiest 2% in America paying their fair share.... It worked to get the the idiot re-elected and its working right now. Its sad times for sure. I HATE to admit it but I am almost ready to let O take us down the path of no return as it seems no one is going to listen until we hit bottom. Might as well get it over with so we can get to the rebuilding of America sooner.

    Yes he won the election and yes they are in power.. but don't they realize that 49% to 50% of the country doesn't like him or his policies? Wouldn't he want to TRY and please the our side? No he wants to shove his agenda down half the countries throat...

    I never in my wildest dreams thought there would be day in my life that the President of the United States would fight against every thing our great country stands for. I am beyond mad at him and his fools of many...

    He stammered and stuttered the whole way and NEVER gave Wallace a straight, specific answer to his questions. He continues to push the same agenda that was shot down several times previously...

    I do like his tanning booth glow...or is that nicotine stain?

    I thought he did a good job. Why give out specifics and piss off people that may not need to be pissed off. It was pretty clear that they were willing to do what was required to come up with money the dems originally wanted. But, yes you should push the same old thing if the other side is still pushing thier same old plan. When they put something on the table to reach a compromise, the other side is supposed to put something up too. Apparently not only is that not happening, but now they want to increase the debt and have cart blanche to raise the debt limit anytime they want to spend even more.

    It is like watching a good parent v.s. a bad parent. Thier kids want something and the parents can't afford it. One parent tries to explain to the child how you can't have things you can't afford, the other says if you want it we'll find a way to get it for you as you deserve it. Someone needs to teach the children that you can't always have everything you want, unless you work for it and can afford to pay for it.

    I love people who keep talking about how what the Reps are proposing is "The same ole thing". Yet the only thing Dems can ever come up with is "Raising taxes and increasing spending". It's a fucking joke. Let's not forget all of the entitlements that are the #1 driver of our debt were all srarted by Dems. Figure that one out.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.
