John Boehner Needs to go....


by the Left Coast Rebel

.....if this is true:

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said House Minority Leader John Boehner "is not a hard worker" and cuts out of the Capitol early for bar-hopping evenings in Washington.

On his “Morning Joe” show Wednesday morning, the former Florida Republican congressman described Boehner as a disengaged pol whose work ethic doesn’t hold a candle to that of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.).

In the past I have gotten the feeling that Boehner is either a 'rummy' or a smoker - his appearance kind of gives that up.

In the least we need leadership in the conservative resurgence that is energetic, invigorated and ready to fight. Especially if the Grand Old Party takes back both houses of Congress. If that is to mean anything to the nation then in the least leadership needs to be far better than the 'cocktails at five' crowd.

Furthermore, while I'm 'going there,' John Boehner has been in office too long and was far too cozy (not to mention abetting) George W. Bush's record of profligate spending, 'No Child Left Behind, lobbyists....

Buh-bye, (hello Paul Ryan or Tom MClintock?)

  1. Proof, We're going to have to part ways when it comes to Boehner. While Boehner certainly is no longer his vintage "Gang of Seven" self that he was when he first ran for Congress, he should NOT be labeled the "cocktails-at-five-GOP-baby" to be thrown out with the "tea-party-bathwater". Boehner still has his seat and Newt doesn't. Boehner is a smoker, but he grew up one of 15 kids, working in his dad's bar and met his wife while working to pay for college as a janitor. If Boehner is a little laid-back in his approach, I'd rather have a member of Congress enjoying a bit of Kentucky grown tobacco, than frantically gutting our capitalist system and constitution. I was privileged to work in "Boehnerland" and Boehner's the real deal regardless of the media and GOP back-stabbing spin. I think he realizes the mistakes (NCLB, 1st stimulus) of the Bush years (he's always been loyal to the Republican party) and if speaker, would go back to his free market, conservative roots. I hope he's the one that takes that gavel from Nancy Pelosi.

  2. Lady C: I haven't yet made up my mind about Boehner. I've heard both good and bad things. I won't express an opinion one way or another until I'm sure.
    Your quarrel is with LCR. Natural mistake. I get mistaken for him over at his blog sometimes. Don't throw out the blogger with the bath water! Heh.

  3. Boehner needs to realize that it was George Bush's tax cuts got us into this mess. We had a surplus when President Clinton left office :-)President Obama is the only one looking out for the Middle Class. How dare Boehner and his croonies try to stab us in the back, again. I cannot wait until the next election so these greedy Republicans tossed out. We will remember this !!!

  4. "Boehner needs to realize that it was George Bush's tax cuts got us into this mess"
    You parrot the Democrat talking points nicely, Anonymous, but if you ever want to join the real world, I'll see if I can get you a visa!

    Tax cuts increase revenue to the treasury. If we had a surplus with Clinton, it was because the Republican Congress held him to a balanced budget and welfare reform. America doesn't have a taxing problem, they have a spending problem.

    You may have been in a coma since Sept 10, 2001, so let me tell you what happened. We were attacked on 9/11/01 and those attacks prompted us to spend our treasure defending ourselves. Many businesses such as air travel and tourism were severely impacted by the terrorist attacks.

    Bush did spend too much money, but he was a piker compared to Barack Hussein Obama II. Do you have even the slightest idea how much debt this guy has accumulated in just two and a half years?

    President Obama is the only one looking out for the Middle Class. Yeah. As in, "I'll keep a look out, you guys open the safe!"

    "How dare Boehner and his croonies (sic) try to stab us in the back" Okay...

    I cannot wait until the next election so these greedy Republicans tossed out. Like what happened in 2010 after just two years of Obama? Think how ticked off they'll be in four!

    We will remember this !!! Yeah. Like the South remembered Sherman through Georgia.

    Say "Goodnight, Gracie."
