Boehner full of regret
over ´fiscal-cliff´ moves

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Russell Berman

Original Article

Posted By:Mike PHX, 1/26/2013 3:30:37 PM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is sharing his regrets about his "fiscal-cliff" strategy, less than a month after the House bitterly swallowed a last-minute deal hatched in the Senate. In a private speech to the Ripon Society on Tuesday, Boehner said that he should have taken a different course after the November election by immediately demanding that the Senate produce a bill to avert the worst parts of a combination of tax increases and spending cuts that were due to hit on Jan. 1. Instead, Boehner delivered a formal speech at the Capitol on the day after President Obama won a second term,

As well he should be.
It´s easy to act like you´ve got balls when it´s too late to use them, isn´t it, Crybaby?

His entire Speakership has been pathetic. No wonder the young Republicans don´t trust him. He sells them and us out on a regular basis.

Hindsight, yeah right...

Boehner´s crying outbursts are a result of him being an alcoholic and not having control of his emotions. As a former alcoholic myself,I know one when I see on.He´d probably be considered a functional alcoholic but there´s no doubt his judgment is marred by being plastered all the time.He needs to go into rehab 30 days because it´s almost impossible to stop cold turkey because the withdrawal is devastating but he´s probably too ashamed to.

Boehner´s a good man in his heart but his sentimentality is clouding his judgment and his job.

Yes, #18, and he´s being influenced by someone who is in control of his faculties. He´s being given pep talks and trotted out before the microphones to say what the person wants him to say. I won´t say that the guy´s name is Eric, but that´s a guess. If Boehner were to go into a 12-step program, he´d have to make amends to those he has offended. He could start with us and the members he has so disappointed.

Dump em´ all.
Fat chance of reform, repentance, or regret.
They would never pass term limits, reform the criminal voting fraudsters, or reduce their obscene salaries and benefits.

John can´t get the job done. He has failed long enough.

No need to call him names. But there is a real need to oust him as party leader in the House. And for the sake of the nation and the GOP he should step aside and let that happen.

Boehner´s only regrets that people are starting to wake up and see that he and the Republican Establishment have no intention of slowing the growth of government nor the perpetual borrow and spend binging that stuffs the pockets of them and their families.

If you owned a company, any company, and one of your top managers broke into tears repeatedly...he would have been fired at the second instance...and long gone.

Boehner and his excuses are old and rotten and he should be long gone.

The government should be run like a business...not a damn country club. Meet budgets, fiscal responsibility and fire the incompetents ...It´s not that tough.

Boehner is a poor negotiator. He should delegate to a better negotiator. But in the bigger scheme, the GOP has been in retreat since the 1930s, as America grew more addicted and more dependent. Compared to Western Europe, the conversion to socialism took much longer in the US. 2012 proved that America is now a majority-taker nation. I don´t see any way out of the socialist trap other than splitting the country.

Last weekend mysterious posters of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared in various locations around Beverly Hills. The posters featured an image of Cruz’s head — complete with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth — photoshopped onto a heavily inked torso.

Chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga on Friday expressed his condolences, praising Onoda for his strong will to live and indomitable spirit.

NEW YORK (AP) — Comic actor Dave Madden, who played the child-hating agent on the hit 1970s sitcom "The Partridge Family," died in Florida on Thursday at age 82. Madden died at a hospice center near his home in the Jacksonville area, his niece Mary Frances Miller said. Towering and rumpled, Madden was best known for his role as Reuben Kinkaid, who managed the Partridge family band and regularly clashed with its impish pre-teen bassist, played by Danny Bonaduce. While the series starred Shirley Jones, with her real-life stepson David Cassidy as the resident heart-throb, it was Madden and the freckle-faced Bonaduce who

Mr. Christie, a Republican, has insisted that his staff and his campaign had nothing to do with the lane closings, and said that they were done as part of a traffic study. But the emails, obtained by The New York Times, show that Bridget Anne Kelly, a deputy chief of staff

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.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

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

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
