Boehner makes enemies
of Christie and King

Washington Post, by Jonathan Capehart

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/2/2013 1:46:17 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) both have well-earned reputations as political brawlers not to be messed with. Many a Democrat has felt the lash of their scorn and the blunt-force trauma inflicted by their sharp political elbows. But now House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is the focus of their opprobrium by putting off a vote on federal aid for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. King declared Boehner’s decision not to take action on the $60 billion Sandy bill for New York and New Jersey “disgraceful.” He said that Congress was “writing off”

Comments:
This to me is the "funny side" of looking down the "fiscal cliff." After 0bama played the GOP to his will and immediately left in a prepared Air Force One, Boehner is left holding the bag to explain to fellow RINO´s why they won´t be getting these huge, unchecked billion-dollar paydays [relief aid] to their coffers.

The way to cut spending is to cut spending.

This was not the worst possible spending since it would repair a lot of damage and upgrade a lot of equipment.

So I rate it rather a draw. The two states should be treated roughly the same as others have been treated after great storm damage.

IMO it won´t matter to Boehner and he won´t be Speaker in the new Congress.

Christie and King should demand a CLEAN BILL. But, they won´t will they, cuz a lot of their own political pals will benefit from some of those lovely added "goodies." Christie is the one who is shameful.

Good for Boehner.

Reason that NY and NJ need insurance coverage from Washington is because most insurance companies WILL NOT insure this stuff, called a Flood Plain.

Best to just bulldoze the stuff and move in.

A few years ago a number of states had a horrific ice storm, there was a lot of damage, Obama did not declare it a disaster in fact he ignored it, I didn´t hear King complaining about those people. In fact it was ignored by many, many people. Those states are still dealing with the damage done to the electric lines and the power companies are still fixing them, upgrading them etc.

why oh why do guys like King and Christie go after Boehner so much harder than they do Obama? I can´t stand Boehner so I don´t mind he´s getting smacked around but why not go harder after Obama? His FEMA has been a disgrace! Many large areas still have no power! Many residents are "people of color" How about showing the same outrage about that and blaming the man at the top, Obama! Honestly, I just want to give up.

I like King, but I want them to cut the pork out before passing another bill. This porky Sandy bill needs a haircut. We also need to re-do FEMA and the flood insurance bill. Why should landlocked people support the beachy lifestyle when they don´t live there? Nope.

Let flood insurance be market driven only, and let´s quit bailing out people who don´t have insurance. I pay it. I don´t want to subsidize you.

I think the bill for federal aid to Sandy victims might be stuck behind the one that was never passed for aid to Texas because of drought and wildfires, or to Kansas because of tornados. Both red voting states.
Suck an egg, Obama voters.

Under Mr. Boehner the Republicans (not conservatives) can claim a new name for their party "The Rubber Stamp Party" or "The New French Party" surrender without thought.
He has been a bumbling moron since he assumed the position (bent at the waste) of Speaker, has accomplished nothing but surrender to the Obama liberals and has no concept of conservative morals or values. The idea of fighting for what most American want is beyond his elitist capablity, are we sure he doesn´t caucus with the DNC?

Christie and King wanted money for self serving reasons. They both need to wake up and realize if $9 billion is enough they should not try to squeeze taxpayers for $60 billion! Christie is managing to irritate most Conservatives, he is not one.

There was Christie and Obama acting like CNN´s Griffin & Cooper, before the election.
Now Christie Cristeen can continue the political pornography he so enjoyed in November. Maybe that´ll win him the borrowed dollars he would so like to have granted to him.

In politics, perception is reality. We have reason to know this. Americans have now twice given the presidency to Barack Obama based on nothing more than perception.

The perception that politicians -including Republicans- "didn´t care" about those whose lives have been uprooted by hurricane Sandy was wholly avoidable, and should have been avoided. Astute politicians know this.

I am beginning to think the current Republican leadership is not all that astute, and that it may be time for some major changes.

What #5, #9 and #15 said. Good for Speaker Boehner for at least trying to cut some spending. This "relief" for "hurricane sandy" is so loaded with pork that only about $9 Billion dollars of OUR money will go to assist the victims. The rest will go to pigs like Christie and Peter King, etc. Shame on them.

Other states did not receive any insurance premiums from Christie or King, and have no record of them having purchased an insurance policy, so their states seem to have elected to be self insured, and to have elected to cover their losses out of their resources.

Fair Oaks, Calif. - Kevin Sharp, a country music singer who recorded multiple chart-topping songs and survived a well-publicized battle with cancer, has died. He was 43. His sister Mary Huston said Sharp died at his mother´s Fair Oaks home at 10:49 p.m. Saturday of complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues. "He had a strong heart, that´s what kept him alive, (but) I´m so happy for him, that there´s no more suffering," Huston said through tears and exhaustion. She had cared for her brother since his return home to Northern California last Friday after 10 weeks in the hospital.

John Paul Stevens: It’s okay

Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens said it is appropriate for justices to take the political climate into account when thinking about retirement. "I think so," Stevens said when asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC´s "This Week" if it is appropriate to take politics into account when deciding to retire. "It´s an appropriate thing to think about your successor, not only in this job," said Stevens, who retired in 2010 and was replaced by Justice Elena Kagan. Stevens cited former defense secretary Robert Gates, who said in a new book that he was also concerned about who would take his place.

Red-state Democrats blast

The Obama administration’s latest Keystone pipeline delay had barely been announced late last week when red-state Democrats began to howl, calling the move everything from ridiculous to irresponsible and vowing to explore ways to force President Obama’s hand. The outcry from within the president’s own party underscored the tricky politics for those Democrats, many of whom are facing tough re-election bids, and decisions such as Keystone make it difficult to be tied to Mr. Obama right now. It also set up a major test: Can those Democrats find a way to pass legislation overruling the administration’s decision,

Putin sees opportunities

We learn this Easter Sunday from The New York Times that President Obama now embraces his inner ostrich — Russian President Vladimir Putin is but a pesky irritant, causing problems in just one region of a world that America still rightly leads. Apparently, our cocksure Nobel Peace laureate believes it is cool under the sand, even as tectonic geopolitical plates shift underneath the creaky, man-made foundation “assuring” global security. In real life, President Obama and his senior advisers are making gross mistakes of epic-defining proportions that will have profoundly negative consequences, particularly for the poorest among us.

Bill Maher, comedian or bigot?

Comedy has many subjects: leaders, governments, things we don’t understand. Regarding that last topic, I suppose it is understandable that comedians pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows them to do so. What is generally not condoned, however, are continuous and sweeping insults aimed at those with differing points of view. The worst forms of prejudice and racism are bred out of this type of one-sided banter. Blacks in this country never were given the chance to defend themselves against claims of being less intelligent than whites during the time of slavery. Jews and non-Aryans never were given a chance to defend

Syria´s Bashar Assad visits recaptured

BEIRUT - Syria´s embattled president marked Easter with a tour Sunday of an ancient Christian village recently recaptured by his forces, an important symbolic prize for his government ahead of coming presidential elections he appears poised to contest. President Bashar Assad´s visit to Maaloula, some 40 miles northeast of Damascus, serves a propaganda victory for his government in its quest to be seen as protector of religious minorities as its civil war grinds on. (Snip) Rebels, including fighters from the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, seized Maaloula several times late last year, most recently in December.

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

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

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. 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. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
