Boehner Orchestrating
the GOP´s Demise

American Thinker, by J. Robert Smith

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/7/2012 8:06:09 AM

It´s a contest of wills and guess who is winning? President Obama, of course. And that´s because the president is up against the GOP´s equivalent of Churchill´s "Boneless Wonder," Speaker John Boehner. Matched against the president, Boehner is making Ned Beatty´s hapless character from the classic movie Deliverance look downright gritty. Boehner the Boneless Wonder´s beta dog routine is doing much to deep-six the Party of Lincoln. Hyperbole? Don´t grumpy grassroots conservatives grouse incessantly that establishment Republicans are screwing the -- well, putting it more politely, screwing it up

Conservatives are their own worst enemies. We are so quick to create the circling firing squad. When have you ever seen liberals do this? They don´t. Sorry, but this author is part of the problem.

I could have said that, but Mr. Smith says it soooooo much better. Could Mr. Smith please go to Washington and deliver this strong message?

Well, I think it´s mostly that he´s overseeing the demise of the GOP, rather than single-handedly orchestrating it. But he´s doing his best to kill it, don´t misunderstand me. I just think a lot of other folks have had a hand in helping kill it off. Like all those who think the Tea Party and standing for conservative and Constitutional principles are bad things, to be avoided at all costs. :bleaksigh:

John Boehner has the toughest job in Washington and there are those in the party who will not be happy with any move he makes. He has my sympathy and I believe the writer of this piece is being hysterical.

Some are concerned about the survival of the GOP. Others are concerned about the survival of the Constitution. Boehner is in the first category.

Boehner is not alone, but stands as the spokesperson for those that have already killed the GOP. The demise has already occurred, as evidenced in the election. True conservatives, however, will not die because their values are based on deeply rooted principles that cannot be compromised. Until more of the population shares those convictions, the entitlement distributors and their grateful recipients are in charge.

Republicans are the "real" party. They don´t wallow in denial or live to the vote today. That we leave to the democrats.
Republicans have been going to the left, which necessitated the TEA party.
Boehner needs to think:
Is for the Constitution?
Is he for smaller government?
Is he for the individual?
Is he for growth and jobs for all who want to work?
OR
Is he for taxing more, so that Obama can flush it down the sewer with THE most stupid spending bills ever known to man?
Obama is addicted to spending and Boehner and Republicans do not have to enable his bad habit.

Politics is the only job class in thw world where they take, steal if you will, our money, waste it, blame us and demand more...Boehner is a disingenuous liar, or he would have an honest line of work.
Trusting in one man to save everybody and everything died out when George Washington died.
He´s a progressive, doesn´t know the faintest thing about the Constitution of the United States and is poised to sell it all for nothing but empty promises and some "I saved everybody´s bacon, re-elect me next time" photo- ops.
I cannot believe anyone thinks he can be trusted to do aything but what he has done in the past, what they all have done in the past, and that is to stand on our necks.

#1, the GOP has no more to do with conservatism than the DemonRat party does. Ergo, no circular firing squad.

Boehner is a spineless RINO and he has been dealt a weak hand by 5 million of us not showing up on Nov 6. Is he doing the best he can with cards he has got? Only the future will tell. Those who instantly jump on him have no viable alternatives beside mass political harakiri.

When the Democrat Party left me, I did as Reagan had done and became a Republican. Now the Republican Party has left me. Where to go now? I wonder what Reagan would have done? For the moment, I’ll just park in the Independent column.

If Boehner is not gone in the next congress, and replaced with an articulate and visionary conservative, the GOP is useless. Time for a new party. Maybe the new Bull Moose Party, perfect if a little diesely sounding for Sarah Palin. But leaders should be looking for candidates now. Boehnerism will include changing the laws to make it nearly impossible for the new Bull Moose to qualify.

Second Post. This is the biggest and most self-destructive bunch of bull crap I have ever read. Someone who is not a friend of the Republican Party is standing back and laughing at this ankle-biting, circular firing squad. Shame on you. Let Boehner alone.

I was shocked at Boehner´s comments on revenue increases on "the wealthy." If I thought that this punitive tax increase--which is what it is--would improve the economy, I would be for it. But it won´t! It won´t even make a dent in the deficit and will take more money out of the economy. It´s a job killer and a recession-inducer. I think Boehner needs to go. We need someone with principles.

I´ve voted in every election since I was 18, and for the first time in my life, I´m seriously considering not voting again.

I can´t stand the Dem/Socialist/Communist party, and I´ve come to despise the RINO-led Republicans almost as much because they´re Dem lite. Why bother?

I´m more convinced than ever that the U.S. is going to have to hit a Greece-level crisis before anything is done.

For the past few decades, DemonRATS have leaped to the left, looked back and complained that Repugs are "extremely right." Today, the RNC management and many elected"professional´ politicians stand where the DemonRATS were way back when.

Maybe the demise of the GOP will allow the TEA party--or their equivalent--to rise like a phoenix and bring back adherence to Constitutional principles.

I didn´t leave the party, the RNC betrayed me.

John is playing the old game of Two Parties, One Nation. aka, we all want the same thing.

The Democrats are playing a different game: One Party, Our Nation, Forever.

John is an adequate team captain for the old game. A lot of those we call RINOS have a similar skill set and mind set. They can achieve nothing, the game has changed.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
