Boehner Faces Growing Opposition…From Republicans

A little more than a month ago, the country’s conservative voters had reason to celebrate. After six years of unchallenged rule, President Obama was forced to face the music. Republicans had taken the Senate and increased their House majority, giving them full control over Congress. Finally, we could get down to the business of fixing America. We could roll back Obama’s executive action on immigration. We could do something about that school lunch program. We could finally repeal Obamacare.

But it wasn’t long before it became obvious that none of that was going to happen. The GOP that talked such a good game in the midterm campaigns was on the retreat. All of a sudden, it was impractical to hold back funding for Obama’s amnesty. It was unrealistic to think about repealing the Affordable Care Act. Republicans at the highest levels determined that Americans wanted compromise more than they wanted political principle. And the figurehead of this anti-conservative movement has been Speaker of the House John Boehner.

Voters Want Him Gone

A new poll fielded by EMC Research says that 60% of Republican voters would like to see Boehner replaced. In deeper questions, the poll revealed that Boehner has lost the trust of the conservative base: only 13% were able to strongly agree with the statement, “I trust Boehner to fight for the issues that are important to most Republicans.”

Boehner has never enjoyed strong support from conservative voters, but his popularity is at an all-time low. Sean Hannity has called him “cowardly,” and there have been several high-profile calls for his resignation as Speaker. Controversy climaxed with the $1 trillion “CRomnibus” bill passed last month, with many conservatives decrying it as a full surrender to the Obama administration. With Republican leaders scared to pursue a course of action that might lead to a shutdown, they tore up their promises to Americans who want change.

Revolt

Now it may be time for payback. Conservatives in the House are talking mutiny, laying the foundation for a vote against Boehner on January 6th. Whether that comes to anything or not, it’s clearer than ever that the GOP is suffering from a major political divide. At a time when all hands should be on deck for an assault on Obama’s policies, it is beginning to look like the real fight will be between the Tea Party and the establishment. It’s a fight that goes beyond Boehner; the same rumblings are already coloring 2016 predictions.

With our national debt spiraling into the stratosphere, our borders open for abuse, and our economy struggling under liberal policies, we need true conservatism now more than ever. Unfortunately, Republicans seem to be scared of their own biggest supporters. Names like Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney dominate the 2016 conversation. And while either would make a better choice than Hillary Clinton, they aren’t going to put our country back where it needs to be.

If there is a growing voice calling out once again for a third party, Republicans have only themselves to blame.

  1. He has not shown any sign of life or leadership at any time. If any thing he has
    been an appeaser or willing accomplish to the administration. Rather than stand
    up and be counted he has clung to the Scotch bottle and whined. He need to not
    only be removed from the position of speaker but any position of power completely.
    He is either a RINO or a total coward not much different no matter how you look at
    it..

    • He never impressed me from day one but he’s even worse than I had imagined. Ried is a prick but an effective prick.

    • I HAVE SAID THAT HE SHOULD GO FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS.DO IT NOW OR SHUT UP.NO BALLS.

      • At this point all we can do is call and let our opinion be know to
        our representatives, After the speaker is chosen then we
        look to see how the voted and know who to target come the
        next election, they are hoping we will forget how they voted
        and continue as usual doing what is best for them and their
        cronies rather than those who elected them. We lost control
        of our representative when the Government took over pay roll
        rather than the people and State who elected them to office.

        • I wish those that vote against the people would lose their pensions, or better yet, get strung up, by the people.

  2. Let’s take a succinct look: John Boy is a bit of a lush – going back to the days of daddy’s bar

    • seersuckerandapanama

      Trey Gowdy is my representative and I have already e-mailed him to express my opinion that Boehner has to go. Gowdy is doing what he wants to do: be on the oversight committee and be its de-facto prosecutor. He is excellent at it. He may think that he doesn’t have the skill set to be speaker. Now that Louie Gohmert has stepped forth, there is someone around whom to rally. Also, since you don’t have to be a current House member to be speaker, I would think that Newt Gingrich is available.

  3. Told ya so. Old guard Republicans don’t realize you do not compromise with socialists. Nothing will change until WE change it. Do not depend on DC professional liars. They are more afraid of conservatives than democrats.

    • And that’s exactly what I’ve been saying….it is WE, THE PEOPLE, that have to change things. DC will never, ever, ever change themselves. As long as people keep voting the same rot to represent them, rot is what we get. I’ve been writing about term limits which would be a good start. Again, that’s something they won’t vote for. I think every single incumbent that has served 2 terms should have an automatic “no” vote by the people. The vote should be for another person…and if there’s no opposition to a conversative, do a write in.

      • Many pols do not only want to give up their thrones, but the under the table $$$$$. Bought, sold and paid for.

        • Oh…without a doubt – the back handed money from lobbyists is a huge perk not to mention all the money Pelosi made from insider stock trading info and I’m sure she’s not the only one. That money, along with the power they feel is what they have. It’s way past time to de-throne all of them!

          • If we banned lobbyist, that would be great, no special interest, nobody to bribe them. Crooked bastards.

          • And you can add crooked bastards to the Congressmen as well – they’re taking the ‘bribe’ from the lobbyist that are trying to push the personal agenda of the people that sent them to DC to buy the Congressional people. It’s a another ponsi scheme on all sides and we, the people that pay taxes, are the losers. The Obummer said in 2007 while campaigning he would get rid of all lobbyists. Yah right! We see where that all went. It was just another blatant lie to get elected.

      • We have to limit them to 2 terms and we have to do it now. We have to get the people behind term limits . The voters have to put it on the ballot.

        • Well, if you have a plan I’d love to hear it. I’ve been writing on these blogs for the past 4 years and almost every single thing I write includes term limits, depending on the topic. I’ve also talked to people, written my friends and family. No one has a solution. One person said to contact the Tea Party. There is no ‘national’ organization, it’s comprised of each state having their own within their own districts. I’ve heard that Dick Mulvany from SC has a proposal fr term limits and has 3 co-sponsors. I’ve not read or heard about that in any public venue. I’d love to write him but I want to make sure it’s a true fact before I put my foot in my mouth. I keep saying that until we get the rot out of DC – the politicians, especially the career ones – nothing will ever change……EVER!!!!! People have to wake up and stop voting for the same piece of crap representing them. The Senator or Representative running makes all sorts of promises to their people and the people buy it. Then they go to DC and do what they want. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. That’s what we have today!!! Please….how does someone start a serious discussion on this that will be fruitful!

      • THAT IS EASY ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF 1/3 OF THE SENATE VOTE EVERY 2 YEAR .
        THE HOUSE 1/3 ELECTED EVERY 2 YEARS .WHEN IT WAS STARTED OUR SYSTEM WAS A DUTY .NOW IT IS A WAY TO GET RICH AND POWERFUL. LET’S PUT A STOP TO THE GREED.OUR FORE FATHERS HAD IT RIGHT.IT IS A RESPONSIBILITY.

        • WE HAVE TO TAKE THIS BEFORE THE PEOPLE. WE CAN TOTALLY CHANGE AMERICA FOR THE BETTER . I DON’T MIND A MILLIONAIR BECOMING A POLITICIAN BUT I DO MIND A POLITICIAN BECOMING RICH BECAUSE HE IS IN POLITICS.THAT HAS TO STOP HARRY REID,NANCY PELOSI ARE GOOD EXAMPLES . I WOULD SAY THAT THERE ARE PLENTYOF REPUBLICANS THAT ARE GETTING RICH ON THE BACKS OF HARD WORKING AMERICANS ALSO. I THINK WE CAN CHANGE ALL OF THAT.IF I CAN GET HELP FROM THE PEOPLE TO ADVERTISE WE CAN TURN AMERICA AROUND BIG TIME.LET’S GET TOGETHER AND GET STARTED.WE DON’T HAVE TIME TO WASTE. WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE WAY OUR POLITICS WORK..

  4. When you betray your party you should expect to be replaced as speaker. “Eunuch John” talks the talk, but with no testicles he can’t walk the walk.

  5. why don’t we just start a third party and call it dah “THE TEA PARTY!!! I like so many others are sick and tired of RINO’S. Take heed Bonner!

    • Yep….we actually have a 3rd party and it is the Tea Party 🙂 I think at this point the RINO’s outnumber the conservative Republicans left in Congress. I think that every single member in Congress that is a conservative needs to step up to the plate and announce that they are or will become part of the Tea Party and that should leave all the RINO’s standing alone. That should separate the men from the boys. I am sick and tired of the Republican party. The only thing is that if people don’t get on board in huge numbers and the RINO’s and Tea Party split conservative votes, the Democraps get in and we, the people, lose again. All I do know for now is that no brain Boehner has to go. He may just be the biggest RINO there. With ‘friends’ like that we sure don’t need enemies!

      • lol, I was being a little factious. I am aware that there is a Tea Party in name only. What I was referring to is a for real political party such as Republican, Dummyrat, or Independent, (which really is no party at all). You know, one with our own mascot. (such as a Patriot with a Musket or Gadasan Flag). Something other than what we have now. All I know for sure is we can’t keep going on as we are. It is time for real change, and not obonehead type of change. God Bless you Maggiemae.

        • Well, I kinda knew that 🙂 I guess I shouldn’t have addressed it on a grade school level but rather one adult to another 😀 I had to laugh when I read it again. I guess I get a little nutty when it comes to the crap we have had to endure for 6 years and I’m speaking out of desperation to do SOMETHING. I was never open to a 3rd party because the Demorats/Democraps get in because the vote is split. If the RINO’s would sever the cord and go out on their own, we might have a chance on getting a strong, viable, conservative, believe in the Constitution and the Amendments type of party. I do agree that the majority of the American people (that aren’t part of the communist band wagon) would get on board. A new flag, mascot, etc. would be great. A distinction of ‘who’ we are. I do like the musket!

      • I AGREE WITH A LOT YOU SAY. IT IS WHEN YOU GET TO THE TEA PARTY THAT YOU LOSE ME.AFTER FIFTY TWO YEARS OF REPUBLICANISM I AM SWITCHING TO THE TEA PARTY THEY DON’T LET ANY ONE PUSH THEM AROUND.I LIKE THAT. I WILL STAND UP FOR WHAT I BELEIVE IN. THAT ISN’T SAYING I GO ALONG WITH EVERY THING THE TEA PARTY DOES BUT THE MAJORITYY OF THE TIME I AGREE WITH THE TEA PARTY. THAT IS WHY I AM SWITCHING. SOME TIMES THE REPUBLICAN PARTY DRIVES ME NUTS.AN EXAMPLE.WHEN THE REPUBLICANS VOTED ON THE EXECUTIVE AMNESTY BILL ALL BUT 24 REPUBLICANS VOTED WTH THE DEMOCRATS. THAT IS WHEN I DECIDED I NO LONGER WANTED TO BE A REPUBLICAN. NOW WE ARE FINDING OUT IT IS NOT 5 MILLIION IT IS MORELIKE 11 MILLION TO 15 MILLION. ALSO WE HAVE ABOUT 16 MILLION THATCAME ACROSS THE BORDER THIS LAST YEAR. THAT TOTALS UP TO BETWEEN 25 MILLION AND 36 MILLION .THIS YEAR ALONE 41 MILLION ILLEGALS WERE HIRED AND WE HAVE OVER 80 MILLION AMERICANS THAT CAN’T FIND A JOB. THERE ARE TO MANY RINOS REPUBLICANS IN NAME ONLY. SOME TIMES I WONDER IF THE REPUBLICANS CARE ABOUT THEIR FELLOW AMERICANS. I KNOW THAT I DO.

    • The tea party, while having some good ideas, is too dogmatic. They see their was as the only way with no compromise and no negotiating. Staying tru to their beliefs is one thing but the cost is a loss of all their beliefs. I considered moving to the tea party but their arrogance got in the way.

      • The TEA Party are patriots. I don’t think that is arrogant at all. I’m sure we won’t miss you and other half-assed Republicans.

        • Your comment shows what is wrong with the Tea Party. Anyone who is not in lock step is demeaned and not wanted. The Tea Party could use a dose of pragmatism. They should consider the opinions of others before accepting or rejecting them.

          • Either you vote the way the majority of your constituants want you to vote or get out of politics . any thing less than that is dishonest.

          • Taken by itself, I agree with your comment. This is what an elected official should do. I agree that John Boehner has not done this. The problem that I have is with attitude of the Tea Party that they and only they have all the answers. There is a middle ground between blind dogmatism and unconditional surrender. I used to be a precinct chairman and a state delegate in the republican party but I refused to vote the party line. I supported candidates rather than parties. When asked by party why I left the republican party, I replied that I had no left the the party, the party had left me. The Tea party would be much more attractive if it were not so rigid. If the Tea party and the conservative republicans want to have success, they need to work together. I hope the leadership can see this and act accordingly.

          • They do have the answer,,,get back to Constitutional law. Sure, that’s rigid. The law is the law, period. The TEA Party would like to see the law followed, for a change. I don’t think that’s dogmatic considering TPTB do everything possible to go around the law.

          • Pragmatism? You mean compromising with the progressive socialists? The practical patriot uses the Constitution as the guiding basis for the Rule of Law. As much as the progressives are trying to change it, the Constitution is the most pragmatic document of our nation.

          • First, the belief that you and only you are right in everything is extreme arrogance and pushes people away. Second, Unwillingness to compromise hinders accomplish anything. Sometimes it is better to accomplish half of your goals than none of them. Fighting to the death leaves you dead. Don’t give up the fight but choose your battles carefully and live to fight another day. Consider the risk reward tradeoff. I support the constitution but believe it should grow with the times. Amendment 14 should to be modified to exclude automatic citizenship for babies born to non citizens. NO MORE ANCOR BABIES!

          • I never said me and only me or the TEA party is right about everything. That is plain foolishness. By you arguing that point I know exactly where you come from. Along with your other HuffPo talking points and buzz words it’s easy to see you are just a fair weather, plastic loudmouth that would melt at the hint of real confrontation. You and your kind know all the right things to say to not ruffle anyone’s feathers. You have been the problem, not the solution.
            Never ending compromise is what has brought the country to this state. It sounds good, it sounds reasonable to everyone, but it is our downfall because the progressives view any sign of compromise as weakness.
            We don’t need more laws, we need less government, period.

          • There is a difference between compromise and full surrender.
            “We don’t need more laws, we need less government, period.” absolutely right.
            “the TEA party is right about everything. That is plain foolishness”
            ” Along with your other HuffPo talking points and buzz words it’s easy
            to see you are just a fair weather, plastic loudmouth that would melt
            at the hint of real confrontation. As a two year combat veteran, I demonstrated good judgement on when to attack and when to pull back and fight another day. Sometimes you charge the machine gun and sometimes you call in an air strike. Wisdom is knowing which applies to a given situation.
            I will vote with the tea party when I believe they are right but I will not follow any group or dogma all the time.

        • The tea party people stick to their guns. they are not all wishy washy. A fine example of this was the vote for Obama’s executive amnesty 24 republicans voted against it as they should have and rest voted for it with Obama. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell Were at the front of the traitor line with the rhinos in name only. I put a lot of pressure on Boehner and McConnell These are the leaders if they can’t vote republican then no republican should say a word about the tea party that is why I amgoing with the tea party.They vote the way their constituants want them to.

      • Well then, what or who do you suggest???

        • I suggest that the Tea Party take a deep breath and be more realistic about what can and what should be accomplished. They should recognize that others have ideas too and not all negotiations are appeasement. There are many things about the Tea Party that I support but they don’t want me unless I accept everything they say with no descent.

          • So in other words, leave everything the same as it is?? That’s brilliant!! Do what you want, but for The Tea Party is the only hope along with God’s Help!!

          • The “other words” are yours NOT mine. I do not want to leave things the way they are. I want a constitutional amendment to mandate a balanced budget though that is not likely to happen. I want to stop agencies from issuing rules that hinder the economy and are unfair to businesses. I want congress to rewrite the law to allow congressional oversight of all agencies. I want clarification on the boundaries of executive orders. I want freedom of religion NOT freedom from religion. I want the supreme court to issue decisive rulings on the first amendment. I want schools to teach a balanced curriculum and to stay refrain from dictating what not disruptive behaviors are prohibited. I want those in congress who don’t follow the will of the people to be replaced. This does not mean to replace all who disagree with you to be replaced. I want people to understand the laffer curve.

            I do not think the Tea Party way is the only way. The hope of achieving any of these goals rests on the Tea Party uniting with both democratic and republican moderates. No group or faction will prevail on its own but together we can make a difference.

          • dude, everything you just outlined is (wait for it) exactly what the TEA PARTY is all about!!!!! If you think that the way to get these goals accomplished is compromise with RINO’s and Blue Dog Demoncraps, you need to go back and do some homework. that mindset is what has been happening since the imposter-in-chief started his “CHANGE”. Look where that got us. So I don’t happen to agree with you. So What??? Do you even know what the Tea Party stands for?? Sounds to me like you don’t. Just sayin!!

          • I spent some time refreshing myself on Tea Party dogma. I confirmed that I support their goals wholeheartedly BUT not their attitudes nor the methods they employ to achieve these worthwhile goals. I encountered the following quote.

            Governor Mike Huckabee recently said, “in politics, when you have an all or nothing, now or never
            mindset, you’re going to get nothing and you’re going to get it
            forever.” Huckabee’s statement came in response to what some Tea Party
            purists are demanding that Republicans do in Congress in the face of
            impossible victories, knowing conservatives have little or no power to
            change political direction because of their lack of force in all
            branches of government. Huckabee explains a fundamental problem with TEA
            Party purists as it relates to accomplishing good for liberty. By all
            appearances, TEA Party purists have declared war against anything not TEA Party, but in reality, they operate more like a religious cult and as such, harm the liberty movement.

            I long for a more pragmatic approach that has a greater chance of success. I will continue to vote for and support financially those candidates that I feel will take a reasonable approach to achieving the goals.

          • Additionally … “But TEA Party purists reject this science and treat politics as a
            religion, as if God Himself has ordained their political dogma.
            They expect every American and politician to be as pure in
            constitutional mind and deed as they are, and those who aren’t are
            “enemies of liberty.”

            I doubt that God is a Tea Party supporter but suspect he supports many of their goals if not their blindness. God is love, not hate. When ib doubt, go read Proverbs.

          • Oh bull! That’s a pretty flimsy excuse. If they don’t “want” you, there’s gotta be a another reason than that. That sounds like drinking too much progressive kool-aid has ruined your critical thinking abilities.

          • I do not adhere to the progressive point of view any more than I do to the absolute dogma of the Tea Party. The Tea Party has good goals but poor strategies. The progressives have good (for them) strategies but poor goals.

  6. Boehner is a part of the group that has been throwing sh&& against the wall for years to see if maybe something would stick! The Republicans have been doing the same things for 8 years hoping that a failed scenario will finally work! Recall Boehner! Better yet recall all of them!

    • Leave Cruz, Lee, Gowdy, Sessions, Grassley and Gohmert alone! They have enough spine to stand up!

      • Include Labrador in your list, he’s going places!

        • Are you an Idahoan, because Raul Labrador is the real deal so is senator Risch, who has voted against every liberal agenda, sometimes successful, sometimes not, but Risch is the most low profile senator out there, but definitely a Constitutionalist, and that comes from several high profile political figures, many to whom hes beem a thorn in their side…
          SEMPER FIDELIS 1983-2004

          • Yeah, I am from Mr. Labrador’s district, up North. Senator Risch is definitely a keeper, too. They are both good conservatives and patriots. You’re right about Risch,,,,very low key,,,but don’t underestimate him!
            “Guns will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no guns.”

          • Im from Boise, so we have Simpson, the jury is still out on him. He’s done good things for our state but would like him to have a little more spine like Labrador and Risch. But they are all very pro gun so that does sit as a good mark in my book….
            SEMPER FIDELIS 1983-2004

          • i honestly don’t know much about him. Crapo has done some good stuff for vets in the past and is approachable like Labrador. I think the state legislature is going for the nullification thing against the Feds. They went for secession once, too. Idaho has always stood up for gun owners for as long as I can remember. Open carry has always been the rule of the day

      • I agree whole heartedly. the tea party are the people that are doing the job. I am switching to the tea party . I am tired of the republicans beating up on the tea party. without the tea party we can’t win. I have voted republican for 52 years and you ass holes are chasing me away because you are to bull headed to face reality.

      • Are they standing up, other than Gowdy? Are they Presidential material?

  7. All he does is cry, as he has shown no leadership I would like to see him go before the new congress begins. I am hoping that we have elected some real leadership across the country committed to righting a terrible wrong. The instrusion of big government into our daily lives has totally upset the entire country and eveyone seems to be at each others throat. If we haven’t elected leaders, we have only ourselves to blame for the outcome.

  8. Thry the rhino democrats will keep boehner amd obama has told him that he will deliver all the democrat votes so he sure to win. This will turn off the conservatives and like 2012 who sat home will sit home in 2016 and the republicans will loose house, senate and presidency. I agree that we need a third party and call it the conservative party consisting of solid conservatives and this party will have the swing vote on all matters because without them nothing will get done. All Republicans will be tuned in to see if the host republicans will listern to their voters or listento the house rhino’s insiders. I also think that obama has something on the speaker because he has help obama do what he wants to do. Call you house member or email them and tell them you want a different speaker.

    • When forming this third party, be sure to make room for the disenfranchised democrats! I get the feeling that there are many demos that are pro-life, anti-socialist, pro- American out there looking for a party they can support. If it is done correctly, I feel a third party could be a viable alternative that might get the job done.

  9. John is a sissy punk just like his brother from another mother obammy !!!!

  10. boehner the boozer has only helped us to get here…

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is

    run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a

    wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman

    provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment

    checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was

    diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest

    big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a

    wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government

    forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself

    makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

    This was borrowed from another blog, author unknown, please spread it far and wide!

    • I’d like to add one more. If your President opens the borders to illegals and offers $3000, to businesses that hire them, while many Americans are out of work, you might live in a country that was founded by geniuses, but is run by idiots!

  11. chicken shit politicion looking to get re-elected seems about right for all Washington “leaders”

    • YOU GOT THAT RIGHT ONCE HEY GET ELECTED THEY ARE WASHINGTONIANS IF THAT ISN’T A WORD THEY WILL GET THE MEANING. WHEN THEY GET TO WASHINGTON THAT IS WHAT THEY CARE ABOUT. TOHELL WITH THE FOLKS BACK HOME.

  12. It is the cautious optimism of the base, at least those I speak with here in Georgia’s 9th CD, that during the next two years the course of government will be a rocky road but one, hopefully, that shows a positive move to the ‘right’. But, alas, our cautious pessimism suggests otherwise. We actually expect, hope against hope, that the GOP leadership, i.e.: Boehner and McConnell, will, in the end, squander our 2014 election victory to their always more comfortable position of collusion with, and capitulation to, the democrats and democrat programs.

    The base does not anticipate any movement by this bunch, despite the new blood we sent up there, to repeal the Unaffordable – No Care Act, aka: Obamacare, but I hear mutterings however that they can tinker with it to make it work. I hear no plan to defend our southern border with Mexico and stem the onrushing tide of disease ridden peasants storming our facilities, abusing our hospitality and living gratis on the American taxpayer. Neither do we hear them speaking of limiting the burden of over regulations now oppressing us. All we ask for is the leadership promised us or the Republican party will be surplanted by the Tea party, like it or not.

    • I think they have already done so with the Cromibus bill.

      • IF THEY HAVE THEY WILL NEVER HEAR THE END OF IT. I WILL RIDE THEM UNTIL THEIR CONSTITUANTS GET RID OF THEM. THAT IS THE WHOLE PROBLEM THEY VOTE THE WAY THEY WANT AND DON’TGIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE PEOPLE BACK HOME.

    • WHEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE PROBLEMS GET RID OF THEM. YOUR PROBLEMS ARE BOEHNER AND McConnell. NEITHER ONE OF THEM SHOULD BE IN THOSE POSITIONS.

  13. Time for him to go, put Trey Goudy in and you will see things get done.

  14. You got it right James.. any Repubs that tries to appease socialist, commie, etc..needs to be taken out of office….This is America you pricks,get it or get out of the country……

  15. A third party will only hurt are chances, it’s best to dump the RINO’s and get down to busness to bring back the true America.

  16. Boehner absolutely needs to be replaced. Their is now a very viable alternative. Louie Gohmert has chosen to run for the position, a REAL conservative. I would not be surprised is obama put out the word to vote for Boehner so that he has an ally in the house. Watch the vote Tuesday and see what happens, see if any dim bulbs vote for him.

    • Do it now talk is cheap put the pressure on Boehner. BOEHNER GET OUT NOW YOU ARE HURTING THE PARTY.MAYBE YOU COULD GET A FULL TIME JOB AS A PAID SERVANT TO OBAMA.

  17. The Republican Party has a lot of problems and most can be placed right at the feet of Boehner. Louis Gohmer just announced his intention of running against him and hope that the all Republicans will contact their congressman to get behind him.

  18. I wish we could get the RINOs out of leadership but I fear that’s a pipe dream , I just know that come November of 2016 if we don’t have a conservative nominee and congress hasn’t done everything in its power to crush obama’s agenda going forward I’ll vote third party or stay home .

  19. Looks like an alcoholic to me. Acts like one too.

  20. He needs to be replaced with Trey Gowdy.

  21. A third party would be very good for the country.

    • Not in our present system of government. A parliamentary system would allow for multiple parties and allow groups to come together on some issues but not on others.

  22. Kick him out and replace with someone willing to represent the people and not go to court where the judges favor Obama.

  23. He is a democrat and republican’s clothing. He sold out, demote him.

  24. Boehner isn’t the only one playing games. They, the house and senate are approaching everything but obamacare and illegal immigration. That would include McConnell and McCain. McCain, according to the news wants to kick the tea party out of Ariz. I am not a tea partyer but even I want to know why he is so adament about that. Work on the pipeline? why not, it is there and gas won’t remain cheap whenever they decide to fake the shortages again. What a farce..As for any new jobs on the horizon, they will most likely go to the illegals if they can find them now that they have skipped and no one knows where they are. We are a slave nation, both black and white, only the proverbial “forty acres and a mule” has not been forthcoming and has been replaced with foodcards, etc, etc. Keep the slaves pacified. Let them clog the streets and loot so they don’t have to work and obviously these people were not of the working class as no company would give a person that much time off to go protest..Need a lawyer? don’t get one that came out of the colleges that were protesting and claiming they were too traumatized to take exams. What kind of rep do you think you would have. Don’t vote for anyone that came out of these schools either. Boy, that does some eliminating.

  25. I personally want to see someone who will stand up to the opposition and fight for what the MAJORITY of the
    people in the United States want.

    • I think that is wrong. I think you should vote for what the people you represent want .I could care less about what some liberal in California wants. Our voters are what is important to us.

      • Last time I checked we were a MAJORITY RULE COUNTRY, that is why I believe the
        Judicial system is wrong in what they are doing. John Roberts legislated from the bench and
        look what we have.

  26. Boehner needs to be GONE! But I won’t hold my breath! The Republicans seem to be heavily numbered as incompetent, spineless wimps.

    • It is your job to make sure he is gone. I have been in situations like this in business where I had to bring people together and as a group just tell him that a vote was taken and he has to go.

  27. Proud US vet/American

    As long as Boehner is the Speaker, the Republican Conservative vote will be lost by the RNC-is he really more important than those votes, HELL NO! Put him in charge of the USDA, then he can make up all the chickens**t lies he wants to, and it will be used for what it was intended-fertilizer! VOTE HIS LYING ASS OUT OF THERE, NOW!!
    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

  28. To the 246 members of Congress minus Boehner You need to listen
    to the people that pay Your salary and elected You DUMP Boehner
    and do it now. We can still recall You and 2 years is not that long a
    time not all of us have CRS.

    Dump Boehner: that has to be the mantra rung into the ears of House Republicans for the next few days. Gohmert has decided to challenge Boehner. The Speaker of the House doesn’t need to be a current House member. That means that someone with job experience could go for it: Newt Gingrich. Gohmert or Gingrich would be a big improvement. Boehner having a deal with President Obama to not challenge executive fiat on the illegal alien amnesty is the final straw. Boehner has to GO!

    • You had better add Mitch McConnell to your list. He voted with Obama along with a whole line of republicans. I am going to put the whole list up there for all to see one of these days.

  30. as ineffective as boehner is it depends on who’s gonna replace him – because the fact that he is not elizabeth warren makes him a semi -useful idiot- with progressives trying to get rid of conservatives it should be obvious the bush crew are the biggest road blocks to freedom and any one else’s wealth beyond their own – some one like mccain, graham, christie, or a list of others would be a nightmare where a rand paul, trey gowdy, paul ryan or ted cruz would be effective as all these men have worked their butts off to stand up for this country.

  31. If they nominate Jeb or Mit ,I will not vote . I for one ,am tiered of the R.N.C.’s crocked working on the nomination process . If we the people , can’t get the R.N.C. in line with the people , the U.S.A. is history …..

  32. If you are wondering where Boehner’s balls went, just look between Pelosi’s legs. I’ve asked him to resign many times to no avail. Hopefully that the new Reps can vote him out!

  33. To those that are “Lukewarm Conservatives” and don’t have THE BALLS need to either resign or be removed. Americans deserve better.

    • I don’t think you have to be a ball breaking Republican You have to give a little but not to the point where you vote like a democrat.

  34. :You wanna ‘clean out the out house’?? We’ve learned time & time again just electing ‘permanent politicians’ ain’t the solution..Boehner is just one ‘tit’ on a LARGE ICEBERG..
    Join Alaska, Florida, & Georgia who’ve opted to be the first of the 34 states needed to meet @ the 2016 ‘Convention of States’ gathering to establish ‘the liberty amendments required for the ‘restoration of our American Republic..visit http://www.conventionofstates.com & also read Mark Levin’s book..”The Liberty Amendments Restoring The American
    Republic” for more insight on those Amendments to make this a reality..Part of “Flushing” the Outhouse..IRS, EPA, Term Limits ( including the SCOTUS )..etc.etc.Once the 38 States ratify the ‘suggested’ amendments will automatically FORCE CONGRESS to take action on their implementation & provide sovereignty back to the STATES..With Conservative’s now having the majority in both House & Senate..AIN’T GONNA BE A MORE OPPORTUNE TIME FOR US TO GET THIS JOB DONE!! For ALL our kids, grand kids, & great grand kids so we can tell ’em WE did it for them..on OUR WATCH!!

  35. If its going to be Rep. Louie Gohmert he would be a good choice. Beohner should be replaced and new leadership should be installed. But the good ole boys won’t buck Beohner. He is not a leader and everyone knows it.

  36. Beohner is a RINO !

    Beohner is a RINO !

    Beohner is a RINO !

    Beohner is a RINO !

  37. You republicans were elected to fight that traitor in the white house, Not be his lap dog, do your damn job, you gutless pussys.

  38. Today the 6th, I hope we get a leader with some balls, instead of that lapdog traitor.

  39. So the crybaby managed to get re-elected to the speaker position. Apparently the CONgress isn’t any wiser than all the low-info voters. WHEN are people going to wake up and look beyond “who’s there now” and elect someone of character, someone who has shown he’s listening to the electorate?

  40. i would like to get a leader that could actually lead and was actually honest. BONER is a country club drunk that doesn’t care about anyone or anything rather than himself.
