Boehner re-elected as Speaker;
Nine Republicans defect in vote

The Hill [Washington DC], by Pete Kasperowicz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/3/2013 1:44:54 PM

Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) was re-elected Speaker of the House on Thursday after a week of rumors of a possible GOP revolt. Boehner won a bare majority in a vote that saw nine Republicans vote for other GOP members, and several others who abstained from voting or voted "present." Two years ago, Boehner won all available 241 GOP votes. In a vote that opened the 113th Congress, Justin Amash (R-Mich.) voted for Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho).

The RINOs will ensure that the head eunuch remains in power and continue to bow and worship at the feet of the Obama administration.
The idea of conservative values and the needs of the American people are far down the RINO priority list. They are there to stroke their egos with power and get re-elected.
The corruption of the American soul by the White House, Congress, Senate and the propaganda media will continue the downward spiral of America within the decade we will just be another third world dictatorship.

Boehner has done a fine job. Hulskamp and the other guys who got booted from their committee assignments need to put their big boy britches on. Time to grow up and work on solutions that can muster majority support. Spit wad boys go to the back of the line. Cantor and Boehner have already engineered one big win (2010) and survived a tough election in November.

Conservatives were also very sure that Mitt would win and he didn´t and I do think that John was right on and his fellow pubbies that did not vote for him are pretty dull and dumb - now the dims know that there is a rift in the Party and will use it.

The GOP won`t stand up to their own Speaker. They have no chance against Obama.

Expect more gun control, more taxes and illegals getting a free ride to citizenship. On top of that, expect more republicans an independents to stay home during the midterm election in 2014, thus throwing the `gavel` back to Pelosi. She must be licking her lips at the thought of getting Speaker Force One back.

Face it, a RINO is a Republican, period. One in the same. We have Democrats, Independents, Republicans, and Conservatives. There are two Parties. The Dems and the GOP. There is a place to go for all except Conservatives.

Money bills must start in the House. So just don´t raise the debt ceiling and make the chief freaking executive deal with it. The President cannot raise the debt ceiling.
The Preezey Poser will put down his golf clubs and cry if they don´t raise the debt ceiling. So let´s watch. Shut the government down (excluding military and law enforcement) -- shut it down without pay -- and don´t listen to the Pravda media. We have a spending catastrophe to deal with. Deal with it.

#7, you couldn´t be more wrong. The vast majority of conservatives and Tea Party adherents did not want Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate. We held our noses and voted for him last November but as we suspected he lost. The unprincipled elite of the Republican party is responsible for yet another electoral failure.

What #4 and #7 said. BTW, If there are so many tough conservatives in the House, where were they today?? I didn´t see anyone step up to be sacrificed for party "unity". At least John Boehner is trying to cut spending. It´s pathetic that some Republicans continue to demonize each other while the demonrats laugh their collective faces off. Can´t say I blame them. And another thing, the wunderkind Paul Ryan voted FOR the fiscal cliff bill. Guess that doesn´t matter...

#8, speak for yourself. I am as conservative as anyone you ever met and I supported Mitt Romney since 2008. It´s an overreach to believe you can speak for all conservatives. I´m so weary of the purists who think we only have to stand up and say "boo" and the Dems will fall over in a dead faint, allowing us to rule the country. Boehner is being blamed for not saying boo loud enough, apparently. We have to have the ammunition, people, and with only the House, we´re underarmed. Yelling "boo" isn´t enough. I guarantee no two people on this thread can agree on every point of a plan for what is next. So, we simply wheel and fire on our own instead of trying to strategize and focus. It´s disgusting, disheartening and frightening.

Boehner is not the kind of tough leader we need in the House. He is collegial and tries to get along while the other side is playing full contact karate. Wrong person, wrong time. I believe him when he told the caucus that was done dealing with Obama -- read he will just give in.

Boehner needs to go to the Mayo Clinic, while Barry is away on vacation, to get a testicle transplant so he can face him when he returns. We needed a speaker who can stand up to him - not someone who says openly that he is unable to negotiate one on one with the President. What kind of a wimp is he? Let´s get tough on the deficit and spending and stop crying about it.

1. Calls for and end to demonizing fellow conservatives would probably carry greater weight if they weren´t followed by sneering references to Ryan.

2. Yesterdays result was an inevitable consequence of running a candidate unable to articulate a consistent message of the evils of expansive government and crony capitalism. Vilifying conservative ideas in February and March made it difficult for those principles to be the battleground for this negotiation.

3. Is is really necessary to correct the deliberate obfuscation among our own of who and how conservative principles are articulated. Here´s a hint, given the willingness of Romney supporters to ignore the lessons of 2010 (which was hardly orchestrated by Boehner or Cantor), they probably ought not try to carry the banner of conservative thought into the next battle.
We all see how desperately you want to lead, but maybe you need to check your GPS.

#4, the Tea Party caused the 2010 upset, not Boehner and Cantor.

They should all be voted out in 2014. There really is no difference between the RINOs and the Dems.

Hulskamp has a PHD in agriculture management representing a heavily AG state. Removing him from that committee is abuse of power by Boehner.
Boehner declared war on TEA party conservatives, instead of Obama and democrats and war he is going to get.

#31 it was Gingrich and Perry that where vilifying conservative principals during the republican primary. I´m amazed at the lack of reality based thinking. So many of you advocate letting us go off the fiscal cliff, thereby raising taxes on all americans. Brilliant strategy, the republicans can then be viewed as the party of tax raisers, and Obama can then be a champion of tax cutting. But lets not think of that, lets just stamp our feet and eat our own. As far as all conservatives voting for Romney that´s bull. Less of the base voted in 2012 that 2008. Unfortunately some unbelievable people are conservative.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win!

The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg.

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense.

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.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
