Boehner starts second speaker
term vowing end to one-on-one
meetings with Obama

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/3/2013 6:12:40 PM

John Boehner´s first order of business in his second term as speaker is no more one-on-one meetings with President Obama. An aide to the speaker, who won re-election to the leadership post Thursday afternoon, confirmed to Fox News that Boehner is done with closed-door talks with the president. Boehner and Obama over the past two years have made two unsuccessful attempts at striking a "grand bargain" deficit-reduction deal. The last set of talks, in the context of crafting a bill to avert the fiscal crisis, ended with Boehner exiting the negotiations and pushing a failed "Plan B"

Comments:
This article takes me back more than 30-years-ago when I use to watch wrestling on a weekly basis. Besides "Macho Man" Randy Savage and his "manager," the Lovely Elizabeth, my fave part were the interviews. Why? because like Boehner here in this article, the bad guy could turn on a dime and become the good guy in a few weeks. I didn´t believe it then, nor do I believe Boehner now. But, all I was doing was watching mindless screed then. Not now.

So is this an indication that Congress and particularly Boehner have taken efficiency to heart? Is Boehner just streamlining the surrender part by eliminated the need to waste time personally graveling to Obambi and just surrender right from the start? Maybe Boehner can push this as a deficit reduction plan. Save us taxpayers the wasted cash on staffers and expensive travel when we all know he just plans to do whatever Obambi wants from the beginning.

Maybe the anti-Christ hypnotized Boehner into caving in to all of those one-sided deals. Now he wants to avoid those evil black eyes.

The next time when debt ceiling comes up, Zippy will threaten to stop SS checks and blame the Republicans, they will dissolve like a lump of mud in water. When gun control comes up the ´moderates´ will join the ´Rats and it will be over.

I agree with #8. The Speaker was in a tough place with very little leverage. The fiscal cliff deal was lousy but did prevent a calamity. Boehner´s statement basically says that obama is not an honorable man as he will not keep his word.

How about vowing to end continuing spending resolutions and force the Senate Democrats to approve a budget???? It would be Constitutional but that wouldn´t be nice according to the Dems and msm so I doubt that will happen. Good grief what other nonsense did he tell the House Republicans in order to keep being the Speaker? We´re toast with such weak willed leaders like Boehner. There will be no real spending cuts no matter what Boehner declares. It will be all smoke and mirrors.

Agree with 8 and with 9.

No-Broehner is in a tough spot.

Media Ho´s are out to screw us 24/7.
Nation of lazy moochers wanna believe the Ministry of Propaganda (NBC).
What´s a fella to do?

My recommendation for strategy...
unlike pessimists on another thread today...
I expect we will triumph in the 2014 midterms next year.
We will own the House and the Senate.
We can wreck the final two years of Bamster´s reign of terror.

When Obamacare kicks in, in Jan. 2014, you will have...
even worse unemployment, economy, taxes, misery...
second terms are downhill for all prez, especially nasty sick ones like Bammy.

The sixth year, the second term mid-terms, are usually disastrous.
Be patient and wait for it.
Why all the panic?
Why all the pessimism?
We know what we´re up against.
Let´s do it.
Let´s roll.

OP, you know Randy "Macho Man" Savage and Miss Elizabeth are both no longer with us, don´t you? He died in a car crash, and she died from an OD while she was living with Lex Luger (real name Lawrence Pfohl). Which was one of the many things that prompted Lex to turn his life over to the Lord, and he´s doing well today, AFIK. He had some medical troubles after that, but recovered pretty well, and was a big testimony to the other patients at Shepherd.

RE: Boehner - Bah. I do not care what he does or does not do. He could move into the WH for all I care.

A smart move that should be emulated by all GOPs. You cannot deal with Democrats any more than you can negotiate with bacteria. There can be no compromise between freedom and totalitarian socialism.

Guessing he intimidated conservatives from opposing him by threatening any supporters for new leadership. Then, so as not to get Palin or a new third party stealing the base away, he says he will not meet with Obama "one on one." Here is the compromise establishment republicans prefer rather than understanding and explaining to the voters what marxism and Cloward-Piven strategies will do to the children of America. Instead of the Obama marxists overthrowing the country violently -- as in, "Have you ever been a member of an organization dedicated to the violent overthrow of the U.S?" -- they can overthrow, or transform non-violently, using [grudging] republican help and the "fairness" narrative. And while we are looking at "The Cliff," or the "Benghazi Story," or "The Plane Crash in Iran which killed a SEAL General and wounded Hillary", Obama has, like a Deist Clockwinder God, created enough instability and Anti-Semitism in the Middle East to have it come apart tomorrow. The press in the totalitarian regimes plants National Enquirer stories, since Truth is virtually dead here for those to whom America is a bi-word or a "country-tradition". Somewhere tonight, with a few normal looking friends, Boehner is being celebrated for his raw political skill and his win. And maybe one of these normal looking friends, a backslidden type with a Stella in his hand, suddenly sees invisible writing on the wall. It says, "Things that cause people to sin must come, but woe to that person by whom these things come." [Luke 17:1]

This is the, ´same-old, same-old,´ cream-puff rhetoric from blubbering doormat Boehner & his statist GOP cronies and, as in the last House session, it just isn´t getting the job done. As the other headline notes, 0bama is relaxing on the beach while Boehner squeeks by in the Senate vote!!! ...What kind of GOP leadership is THAT? THIS President and THIS Congress infringe upon every Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and 4th of July every year now. They don´t read the legislation they vote on in the dead of night. They are a communal statist disaster. And in the end, they ignore the Constitution and their own oaths of office. Our ship of state is without a rudder & adrift inside the beltway.

How pathetic that at this critical point in American history all this Senate GOP, ´leadership,´ has to offer is talk, talk and more talk?!! Faced by 0bama/Reid/Biden(?!)/Kerry(?!!!!!) and the like, the current GOP, ´led,´ by Boehner has caved AGAIN, collapsed and is down for the count. Where is a principled GOP leader in this Congress who can actually champion the Constitution & articulate/communicate its principled policies of Life & Liberty with Justice for ALL? Who will the oath of the office? Please step up!

I say that the Speaker should refuse to go to the White House when the next crisis evolves and Barky issues a call for a command performance. Instead inform ol´ Purple Lips that he needs to come down to the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue if he´s serious about holding discussions. Pennsylvania Ave. isn´t a one-way street. It runs west AND EAST.

I agree with 8, 9, etc. How did this "direct" negotiation get started? If I recall correctly, it was Zippy who invited them all to the WH, and suddenly that became the main M.O. After what The Won pulled last summer (welching on the deal he proposed, a la Lucy and the football), Boehner would have been within his rights to refuse to go back, knowing there would just be more of the same in store for him. By showing bona fides, he got creamed again by The Won.

I don´t blame him one bit, and if that´s the way Barry wants to play, he´s welcome to a game of solitaire.

New York Times columnist David Brooks said Sunday that he believes President Obama’s foreign policy isn’t “tough enough” and that he has a “manhood problem” when it comes to dealing with leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad. Mr. Brooks expanded on Sen. Bob Corker’s earlier comments on “Fox News Sunday” that Mr. Obama is “creating an air of permissiveness” with regards to Russia. (Snip) “And let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a — I’ll say it crudely — but a manhood problem in the Middle East,” he continued.

Ex-death row inmate Anthony Porter

Anthony Porter is angry. He’s come within hours of being executed after he was convicted of killing two people. He was freed from Death Row after another man, Alstory Simon, confessed to the murders. He got a pardon, but he didn’t get a dime when he sued the city and the cops for framing him. And now, there’s a serious push to strip away what little Porter has left: his claim of innocence. Attorneys pushing for Simon’s release from prison say the justice system got it right the first time — that the evidence points to Porter all along in the notorious double murder in 1982 at a South Side park.

Credit card companies know there’s no free lunch, but they’re letting more customers get a taste as an enticement by gouging their existing card members. The average credit card interest rate for people with fair credit has hit a shocking 21 percent, up more than 2 percent from only a year ago, according to industry group CardHub. Credit card companies, which attract new customers with zero percent teaser rates and more rewards, have raised rates while their costs remain historically low, industry observers say. “Credit card interest rates were higher across the board during the first three months of 2014 relative to the same period last year,”

Before taxpayers lost $529 million on solar energy company Solyndra and $10.5 billion on GM, the US government had a long history of backing the wrong horse. Many of the great industries in US history — from the fur trade to steamships, railroads, chemicals and airplanes — failed in the hands of government but succeeded thanks to private entrepreneurs. A closer reading of American history may have avoided the colossal mistake of President Obama’s $700 billion stimulus bill. The government has learned over and over again that when it comes to business, it’s a terrible boss. Here are a few examples to keep in mind the next time you

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.

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

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

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

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
