Replacing Speaker Boehner
American Spectator, by Peter Ferrara

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 9:13:59 PM

Here's how and why it has to be done. John Boehner is a good man in a hard place. He has served in public office as a lifelong conservative, not a RINO. His position on the Obama tax increases has been better than almost any other Republican who has been speaking out lately, given the Obama/Democrat election victories -- close loopholes and deductions for $800 billion in new revenue over a decade, but no increases in rates. But face it. Boehner is no match for Obama on the national stage. He cannot press the economic arguments articulately. He does not have a compelling personality.

Comments:
His suggestion of Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin is interesting. I would love to see the Democrats´ heads explode with just one day of Rush Limbaugh as Speaker of the House. He would sure whip them into shape! Mark Levin would be wonderful, but he said that won´t happen.

We do need fresh voices. Just a thought, what about Gov. Romney? He has half the country´s support, the country knows he´s an astute businessman and he is not an incendiary personality. His calming influence could keep making Obama look like the petty and mean person that he truly is.

Best possible House spokesman for Republicans would be retiring Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier of California. Intelligent, articulate, photogenic, affable, diplomatic, conservative.

Unfortunately Romney was not good at articulating the reasons for his economic beliefs well. Need someone that is strong and who can communicate. Not many candidates. But would really like to see Boehner gone. He´s hopeless. And he´s distroying our side.

It´s a problem all republicans have, and that´s they try to explain things as they pronounce the idea.

Democrats never try to explain the policy goal - they just state it and move on.

Boehner´s letter to Obama is classic example. Hannity was reading it the other day, and while I understood the context, my eyes glazed over quickly as it was just too long, too detailed, and helped Dems.

Cruz and Rubio would be great. Instead of having Rubio off fundraising right now, USE him in the forefront of the battle. No on Dreier, remember him real cozy with media and when they´ve been around like he has, he won´t stand up strong to wimpy GOP leaders. Romney? He won´t do it, no how, no way. FRESH NEW faces with fresh creative straight talk.

I sent Mr. Boehner a message at his http://www.speaker.gov/ contact site, reminding him that someone recently said that "the private sector is doing fine."
I wish he would remind the obysmal won of that.
And take to the House floor like the idiot pigosi does. The LSM pays attantion to her.

And I doubt Rush would take the job of speaker. It would be too big a pay cut.

Ted Cruz would stand head and shoulders higher than anyone else and has proven himself when he was Solicitor General for the State of Texas. He knows his subject matter and explains it well. Reid could not bully him. There would be no mumble-jumble or beating around the bush with him. Straight forward speaker.

John Boehner is a good man in a hard place.... ???! That line lost me.

He offers $800 Billion in higher taxes. He supports obamacare. He is removing conservatives from committees just because they won´t knell before him. He is in secret talks with a criminal named obama.

That is not a conservative. That is a back stabbing RINO!

Boehner is a conservative? No, if he raises taxes, he should be replaced and pronto. Here is why. BO will NEVER agree to any spending cuts now or in the future. People need to get this through their heads.

Therefore, a message needs to be sent that firing Boehner was directly related to him and BO rasing taxes. Draw clear lines for 2014. In 2014, the American people must know that the economy is still tanking and raising taxes, even on people earning 250K plus was just a ruse. Republicans must make it clear that the next tax group to be targeted is the middle class and they are not for raising ANYONE´S taxes as Boehner agreed to do with BO in 2012.

Taxes up, he goes.

I agree with the general consensus that Boehner has been a disappointment and for the overall good should be replaced. The fact that it doesn´t have to be an elected representative is interesting. I did not know that. My suggestions: Newt, Sarah, Rush, allen.

The spectacle of watching Boehner cut a deal with the devil, a deal which any kindergardener can see will be used to further demonize the Republican brand, especially after the knockout punch of Nov. 6, is driving many of us to a third party position. It´s just too much, the humiliation of being outmaneuvered by a gang of openly dishonest, nitwit socialists, time after time after time after time, learning nothing in the process. Topped off by a seeming willingness to let the GOP be decimated by its enemies in the "media". Too little, too late, whatever Boehner comes up with at this point.

#22 - I didn´t know that either. I thought the speaker of the house had to be an elected House member. If something should happen to the Prez and VP, the Speaker would be the Prez. And that could be Rush, Sarah or an unelected individual? I´m scratching my head on that one!!

I must disagree with #15. It is perfectly understandable to shoot a leader who is losing the battle. We played this little game during the primaries and during the last half dozen or so elections; being cajoled into supporting bad to prevent getting worse.
That has been a losing strategy. Even when we win we still get bad.
Why not try a different, uniquely untried strategy? Why dont we throw out bad and get good instead?

What has Boehner done that makes anyone think he is competent? Has everyone forgotten the cave-ins he manufactured over the last several years. Where are the cuts he was promised? Where are the decreases in the amount of increased spending that was promised? What did he accomplish that has helped the USA? They are nowhere, due to him being an inept Speaker that will roll over at the end of the day and accept anything the anti-American socialists throw at him.

We need Ted Poe as Speaker. He has an abundance of common sense and he is a long-time fighter for normal people. Look up his light bulb youtube video, if you do not know who he is.

Anyone not infected by the washington disease of nospineitis would be better. change them every week and give the press a plethura of real conservatives to attack. bring in the best inspirational conservative speakers on a rotating basis. nothing is getting done but cave ins anyway. why not have a little fun and get some confusion going for the propaganda press ? Dreaming can be fun.

Obama faces cold audience
in Pennsylvania [Video]
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 11:56:39 AM     Post Reply
President Barack Obama ventured Wednesday to a mostly blue-collar region of the United States and faced an audience that didn’t seem thrilled to see him. The 15 community college students who were picked to stand immediately behind the president, and in view of the TV cameras, mostly stood stone-faced through his speech. At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one

Education Secretary Arne Duncan visited an elementary school in Columbus, N.M. last year where 75 percent of the students live in Mexico but are being educated in the United States because their mothers crossed the border to seek medical help, and their birth here makes them U.S. citizens. “These are our kids and they’re trying to get a great education,” Duncan said during a visit to the school, which was part of his 2013 school bus tour. “These are children and families who are trying to live the American dream of putting everything, everything on the line to get a

Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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
