Republican House leader John Boehner
told Senate´s top Democrat to ´Go
f*** yourself´ outside Oval Office

Daily Mail [UK], by Hayley Peterson & AP Reporter

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/2/2013 6:05:11 AM

House Speaker John Boehner twice told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to ´go f**k´ himself last Friday after a meeting at the White House on a budget compromise to avert the fiscal cliff. Standing in the White House lobby not far from the Oval Office, Boehner pointed his finger at Reid and sneered, ´Go f**k yourself,´ Politico reported, citing multiple sources present. Reid replied: ´What are you talking about?´ Boehner repeated: ´Go f**k yourself.´ The shrewd exchange from last Friday reveals how the grueling fight over the debt ceiling, spending cuts and tax increases pervaded politics

Understandable, but not in front of an army of reporters.

Wow. If this is true, I may have to take back all the bad things I´ve said/thought about Boehner. Appropriate, since that is what Nobama/Reid/Stretch Pelosi have said to any Republicans/Conservatives [not the same] since 2008.

Obama Saul Alinsky Obama our Community Organizer (rebel rouser) does it again. I am sorry that Boehner was too weak,as are most Republicans to stand up and do what is right for the country. RR, HWB gave in on taxes and spending, then GWB did the same.

They claim to be Conservative but in the end all they do is CAVE!

This is the only thing that Boehner has done right recently but of course the left will demagogue it saying all republicans are uncivilized and need to be booted from government.

Cheney told leaky Leahey the same thing a few years ago,so what´s the big deal he also said Adam Clymer was a major league AH (big time).

A shame he didn´t have the balls to say it on the House floor, to both Reid and Obama.

But, now that he buckled and crawled to his masters, he can get the invites to the Washington Cocktail Circuit, right ?

No ? He isn´t ? Well, that´s what they promised him !

My point is it simply gives the opposition the bullets to shoot us with. It´s the "Caesar´s Wife" position. Yes, I concur, Boehner should show more spunk; it´s a welcome change and I applaud his words. But some things are best done very quietly.

Now everyone realizes that Boehner and his team are nothing but parliamentary functionaries. They are not leaders. He got less than a third of his caucus to support him on this vote. They all should go including Cantor and McCarthy though they voted against Boehner.

You first, John. Boehner is an enabler of one half of the Democrats´ tax and spend road to ruin. So they just keep on spending. The real choice is not complex: We can cut spending or go bankrupt. Since no one in Washington is capable of cutting spending of their own volition, the Republicans have decided to help Obama loot the more productive members of our economy and then go bankrupt. Super.

If nothing had been done, spending would have been cut--anonymously and irresponsibly, but cut nonetheless. Tax rates would have gone up precipitously, and painfully, on most Americans, thereby setting the stage for Republicans to run on tax relief in 2014 and tax reform in 2016. Instead, we are going to stop spending the old-fashioned way: by running out of people dumb enough to lend us money. We literally would have been better off if John and Mitch and their GOP cloak room buddies had done nothing. They are worse than useless.

Good for John Boehner! It doesn´t seem to matter to some what he does or says, the Speaker is always wrong. While obama-the-terrible jets BACK to Hawaii at OUR expense, costing US about $7+ million for his "excellent adventure", by all means, let´s just keep savaging John Boehner and the rest of the Republicans. BTW, Paul Ryan voted FOR the bill too. Tedious.

What this tells me is that Boehner is not the wuss he´s painted to be. As for "caving", I believe that this isn´t the hill Boehner wanted to die on, for pragmatism´s sake, but is going to toughen up on the rest of this Administration´s attempts to marginalize or even destroy the Republican brand. Boehner needed to create the impression that the GOP is not to blame for the massive tax hikes that would have kicked in at midnight. He and the GOP need breathing room for the more important challenges ahead and this is it.

Now is the time for Tea Party caucus members to toughen up when the debt ceiling rolls around. If the GOP hopes to survive as a Party, at least now they have time to regroup and make peace with Tea Party people.

As for what we should be doing as a Party right now, if GOP congressmen are not at this moment furiously writing entitlement cut suggestions, complete with stats, to throw back in Obama´s face next time he pulls this sh**, we deserve to go belly up.

Boehner should have said it. But then Boehner and the GOP votes for the Senate package, so the effect quickly evaporated. The GOP is on the road to a third party.

Ok, I give in. You are all correct, with the exception of a couple of posters who think as I used to. Now I see the light. Nothing is the Democtrats´ fault. It is all the Republicans fault and if they were only braver they would be running the whole show, pushing the President, the Senate, the Supreme Court and the media aside. It´s really very easy if you have the cojones you guys are always talking about. On another post someone said that Palin/Gingrich would not have caved. They would not have had to. They would not have been elected.

It does offend me that out of frustration Speaker Boehner told Reid to go F himself, but what offends me more is that the Democrat side of the aisle and the POTUS don´t want to cut any spending....nada.

No curiosity at all from our "truth seeking journalists" about the reason for Boehner´s comment. It was enough for them to report the comment along with their speculative generalities.

Boehner should have told him (and us), in front of those ´multiple sources´, exactly why he was making that comment, although Reid knew the answer.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

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.
