Boehner: ‘We don’t have a
tea party caucus to speak
of in the House’

Daily Caller, by Alexis Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 9:57:02 AM

There is no tea party caucus independent of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives, Speaker of the House John Boehner said Thursday in an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer. “We’ve got members from all different types — all walks of life, if you will,” Boehner said. “But do they come back changed by this election?” Sawyer asked. “Well, listen, I think this has been the most misreported story of my two years’ tenure,” Boehner replied. “We don’t have a tea party caucus to speak of in the House. All of us who were elected in 2010

To be terribly redundant, I start feeling better since the disaster on Tuesday then I read articles like this. I don't even know what to say anymore.

Impeachment proceedings should have started yesterday in the House. With this clown running the show that will never happen. He can't even complete a sentence. I swear these Republicans are in Obama's pocket. NO ONE can be that incompetent.

These two factions of the GOP have got to find common ground and learn to work together or we will continue to lose. The fact that we had 3 million voters NOT turn out and vote for Romney/Ryan is a disgrace. There is no perfect candidate...each and every one will have their flaws. Instead of each person looking for their perfect candidate how about we do what is right for the country. In this case it was obvious that Mitt Romney was clearly a man that had a vision for this country that was far better than his opponent. Well to the 3 million of you that were to cute by half with staying home and your little protest vote...ENJOY THE NEXT 4 YEARS!

The tea parts image was hurt but the two retards Akin and Murdoch. The tea party started out advocating smaller government and lower taxes, but was hijacked by religious extremist. Did it ever occur to anyone the Boehner does want the party to appear split.

I'm with #8. Frankly, I don't think many of you read the article. Boehner says: "All of us who were elected in 2010 were supported by the Tea Party". He goes on to say that they are all going to have to get along and pull together.

#4, can we forget the impossible dream of impeachment with a Democrat Senate? That is delusional. Insisting that our people accomplish the impossible is not helpful.

And the guy who says no more contributions might as well join the other side for all the use he will be to us. In fact, he has joined without knowing it.

Hopefully there will be a serious challenge to Boehner in the upcoming House election.
It is incredible that we have an introverted sob sister in this important position.
My nomination for Speaker would be Jim Jordan.

Boehner has been a weak and ineffective speaker with no core conservative values and should be replaced post haste. But I have another comment to make after just hearing his presser. Is it just me or (ridiculous fake tan and short fuse aside)is his voice/cough getting more irritating? He and Jan Brewer as well are so obviously emphysemic they grate on one's ears.

John continues to believe - or pretends to believe - the House has some influence in US government. But Obama has successfully ignored it for two years and ruled as he wishes.

Time for another little drama, only a formality. Dire warnings and threats will frighten the House into raising the debt limit and taxes.

But if the House should balk Obama will just print money and proceed. The debt limit is a number in a law. Laws don't matter.

The Constitution also no longer matters. Force counts. Obama has it and he will use it. The government employees will obey. The military will obey.

Nearly all the media will cheer. The rest, a mere handful, will be dealt with.

Expect the state and local police to be federalized so they are directed from Washington. Federalization makes no sense under the Constitution but that is history.

The Supreme Court will do nothing. Four votes were always ready to back anything Obama wanted. Now Roberts is the fifth. And with no real functions left the justices can take longer vacations.

Beatings will continue.

#27, the purse strings are control.

If the house is ignored by Capt Zippy, the government employees and military are outnumbered just by the number of deer hunters in PA. It just takes a spine on the part of American citizens, as they are the owners of the government.

#28 many will agree with you. I contend there is no way for that type of resistance to organize and coordinate effectively. It is a dead end. Literally.

Right now millions of people wonder what this election means. Is it merely a setback until 2014 or later elections change Washington? Are we in a bad economic slump which is certain to end?

Or has US of our textbooks hit the iceberg? I see it that way, partly because it is interesting to speculate. But no one knows.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
