I have recently purged myself from the Republican party. I am a conservative and now I am also an Independent.
The whole point behind electing these people was because they would NOT toe the party line and would think for themselves! If they didn't feel the Ryan budget was the best thing for the country (and it did have far too few cuts and far too much spending), then they SHOULD vote against it! But this is just a set back...in 2014 we will just double down and put even more conservatives in office and eventually the GOP will either take the hint or be over run.
why has this moron EVER been speaker? Did they not learn when he drove America to Pelosi? What idiot thought it was a good idea that the same moron that gave the House to Pelosi should get the job again?
Um, I don't think so Cry Baby Boehner. The issue is that you're a sissy punk who gets kicked around on the playground and picking on your own ranks makes you feel better about the ass whippings you take from Barack.
Screw you, Blubbering Boehner. You need to make it official and caucus with the communists, you piece of shiite.
Boehner is a toady tyrant. We should all wish we had Gingrich or Delay back. You notice how the press took both of them down. It's what liberals do target and destroy. If Boehner was doing his job effectively they'd be after him full bore. As it is they just try to discredit him and suck up to Obama.
The stinking Liberal Press is the enemy of Freedom in America. Without their collusion there would be no Obama presidency, there would be no homosexual agenda in our schools, we would have patriotic honest movies and conservative professors and students would outnumber liberals in the majority of our Universities. They are the ones who inform the majority of Americans, the so called brain washed and uninformed. Until we bring them back to the truth our fight is more than just uphill, it's in the dark with no flashlight.
...the sin wasn't ideology, it was disloyalty'
It is obvious Boehner has a philosophy of 'do as I say, not as your constituency says'. His idea of disloyalty is one of not voting as he tells them to vote. If their ideology is different from what he tells them it should be, then it's 'disloyal'. Interesting.
Obama has been schooling him, it appears, on how to destroy the idea of the Constitution and the ideology of the rule of 'the people' (whoever those peons might be).
I have already written to the RNC letting them know that I, as a Tea Party person, will not tolerate this from the Democrat-Lite Party and that I am re-registering as an Independent.
I also wrote to my Tea Party aligned conservative House member, Raul Labrador requesting that he band together with the other Tea Party members of the House to get rid of Boehner as Speaker ASAP.
Don't know if any of this will do any good, but at least they know how I feel.
I didn't leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me...long ago!
This guys is an azzwipe and needs to be voted right out of the House in two years by his district.....
Excellent insight from MarkAmerica.com on Boehner, regarding incompetence vs. collusion: http://markamerica.com/2012/12/05/boehner-must-go/
There may be a chance to remove him:
'When the election for Speaker occurs in the next Congress in January, we must get sufficient abstentions to ditch this jerk. As Ned Ryun writes at RedState, it will take 218 votes to re-install him as Speaker, and that means we must work to prevent Boehner from obtaining that number. It’s a long shot, but it’s our only chance to rid ourselves of this man, and the problem is that Cantor is no better. We are going to need to say no to a number of these DC establishment Republicans, and we have just four weeks to bring sufficient pressure to do so.'
Let's get on it.
I've never liked Boehner. Just another Establishment Republican. We really need more Tea Party types in the leadership positions. Unfortunately Tea Party candidates like Colonel Allen West and Mia Love got cheated out of being in Congress.
Hey John, have another drink. People, it is time for a Conservative Party that leans Libertarian and respects the Constitution. Please send in all your 3rd party ideas.
Disloyal??? Sounds like these REAL republican members are loyal to their constituents who sent them to Washington to represent them.
The disloyalty is coming from Boehner, Cantor and the other RINOs who continue to sell us out. If these clowns are going to punish the real republicans, we the people will have to punish them in 2014.
Ideology, disloyalty....what the eff ever. What difference does it make? They represent their states, NOT YOU, Boehner!! This is party politics and is a liberal tactic if you ask me. Put party power first, because if you vote on behalf of your state you are a cooked goose.
Go to HELL Boehner!! I want you thrown under the bus....literally.
I agree. This fkucer needs a true, painful beatdown. Traitors should be put to death. He fits that definition. What the hell is happening?
Is Boehner actually a conservative - or is he a socialist in conservative clothes?
"Punishing" a member of one's party is socialist, as anybody with a hint of historical knowledge knows.
"Punishing" a member of one's party for 'being disloyal' is actually communist - that's exactly what Stalin, Mao and the rest of them did.
How is expressing one's opinion and voting one's conscience 'disloyal'? It's only disloyal in the books of someone who thinks the members of the party should be in lockstep.
You wanna see 'disloyal' in action, then take a look at the Tory Party, where the backbenchers, i.e. those MPs without any government post or postlet, have no difficulties voting against their own PM and government on issues they think are vital, like getting out of the EU. It's called a 'revolt' over here - and there's nothing the Party leadership can do about it or them.
If they tried to chuck those members out of their various committees, the Party Grandees would have these leaders deposed forthwith.
Mind - the socialists in the Labour Party would of course behave just like Boehner ...
Boehner's attack on Ron Paul Libertarians in the primaries was evident that the pro democrat Republican Rinos feared an uprising of the libertarian principles of true conservative values. Libertarians understood that present govt is now one party with two names in opposition to * we the people* that is why we have not seen any changes in DC for years and the economy of the US is in shambles.Ron Paul and his libertarians were demonized by both the left and right in a collusion effort to stamp out a growing movement of we the people vs the status quo and the agenda of special interest ruled global government under the unconstitutional interference of the UN in US policy. Yet neocons ridicule libertarians which in my mind equates ridiculing Ronald Reagan. The Republican party is dead as it now stands with the impostors in control. True conservatism is free market, less taxes, less regulation, strong defense, less interference in international govt affairs and wars, restoring our civil liberties, international trade, and rule of law against criminal bailouts and wall street fraud that stole trillions to pay themselves off including foreign banks. Many know we are down to the wire with losing our liberty, and if you do not believe in liberty, what do you believe in? The libertarian Justin Amash was kicked out because of his fiscal conservative votes among others. Replacing Boehner with another RINO will not solve the problem. Time to wake up conservatives and take back govt.
He says it's not because of ideology but disloyalty! What?! Their perceived "disloyalty" was BECAUSE they stood firm on what used to be republican ideology! Ok, I'm going to sleep. I have a headache now! I don't know what to say anymore! This stuff makes me so mad, but I don't see anything changing. These people in dc don't listen or care what we think, so I don't want to call or email anymore. We give them 2010 and this is what they do in return, alienate the ones we voted up there. Nice. Boehner, your breaking the spirit of your base. We won't be used again! You people will be on your own in 2014. I'm tired of being lied to.
Someone needs to be punished here and it isn't those brave representatives who stand on principle and the requests of their constituency. The PUNISHMENT should be dealt out to the Democrats. Boehner is mesmerized or hypnotized-- and his handler is in the WH.
"John Boehner responded in a closed-door conference Wednesday that the members’ sin wasn’t “ideology” — it was disloyalty."
In other words, they were punished for being loyal to their own ideology instead of being loyal to his ideology. Boehner can't understand why anyone would stand fast on principle rather than backing down and giving in to authority, like he always does.
Gutless wonder.. As Speaker of the House.. He is so piss poor I am so ashamed of this man.. No wonder there are rifts in the GOP.. No one has the balls to do the right thing.. !!!
Boehner boned us again. Is anyone really shocked at this point? He is an establishment republican that is NOT conservative at all. He proves it again and again. He is going to bone us on the fiscall cliff.
This man has become a thug, just like Obama and Trumpka. If I were a big Conservative donor, I would threaten to cut off funding unless he steps down or is removed. They only need 16 house members to abstain from confirming him. He's disrespectful of other house members and their constituents. They owe no loyalty to him, only the Constitution and their constituents. I can't vote for Republicans anymore, with this type of thing going on. I just won't do it.
Conservative group launches campaign to ‘depose’ Boehner from speakership
Looks like it will just take 16 "R's" to hold out to unseat the crybaby king. There's hope? Maybe? I'm writing to my Congressman to ask him to dethrone him in January.
He 'looks like the kind of guy that would f__k a person in the _ss and not even have the g**amned common courtesy to give him a reacharound'.
Put Gov. Palin in a room with all the corrupt bastards, and stuff would get done YESTERDAY. Oh, that's right, they (both crooked parties) don't want anyone who's going to hold them accountable, and fix this mess.
The only people a congressman has to be loyal to are his constituents for whom he serves. Boehner is full of crap.
"He (Rep. Schweikert) is also widely considered by leadership to be the source of an embarrassing story this summer about drunk Republican mid night swimming session in the Sea of Galilee." I get it! Ol' Schweikert "spilled the beans" on the drunken party so he is disloyal. Makes sense, yeah! Honest John Boehner had no choice but to show great personal leadership and liquidate the man's position. Anybody can see that!
There is a movement to boot Boehner
(follow on Twitter @AMAction)
I think we should run him over with a bus then spray the tires clean with acid. What a traitorus plick.
This would be fantastic! Do we know for sure that all dems will vote against him? And who would be in line to take his place? I think Allen West would be a good candidate.
Boner, Boner, Boner--to-may-toe, to-mah-toe, disloyal to what--the Constitution or your political "ideals"? This is a representative government you represent the citizens of this country.
Well Boehner, just understand that your ideology is going to be the reason why you will be booted from Congress in 2 years.
John Boehner is either incompetent, valueless, or corrupt....maybe all three. The only reason he is a Republican is because he couldnt win his district as a Democrat....the rest is about power and ego.
Im done with the GOP if this is going to be their "leadership". Dont ask me for a dime, dont ask me to vote for you just because you are in a party slightly less disgusting than the Democrats.
Ill be saving my vote for those libertarian leaning conservatives who earn it from now on. It obviously doesnt matter anyway. If Barack Obama can win reelection with the incredible disaster of a failure called his 1st term laying waste to America, then voting has become a mere shell game side show of entrenched government corruption.
Politics is the circus they distract us with while they rob us, chain us, and pit us against our neighbors.
I wish i was as naive as an Obama voter....i heard its bliss to be that ignorant.
"He is also widely considered by leadership to be the source of an embarrassing story this summer about Republican members’ drunken swimming session in the Sea of Galilee."
BAWNYER act's drunk all the time, how could that be any worse that being outed for a drunken swimming session in the Sea of Galilee.
GOP leaders attacking conservatives putting the nail on the rino coffin to start a party of the people, so we can finally get our Constitutional laws back!
