Boehner Orchestrating
the GOP´s Demise

American Thinker, by J. Robert Smith

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/7/2012 8:06:09 AM

It´s a contest of wills and guess who is winning? President Obama, of course. And that´s because the president is up against the GOP´s equivalent of Churchill´s "Boneless Wonder," Speaker John Boehner. Matched against the president, Boehner is making Ned Beatty´s hapless character from the classic movie Deliverance look downright gritty. Boehner the Boneless Wonder´s beta dog routine is doing much to deep-six the Party of Lincoln. Hyperbole? Don´t grumpy grassroots conservatives grouse incessantly that establishment Republicans are screwing the -- well, putting it more politely, screwing it up

Conservatives are their own worst enemies. We are so quick to create the circling firing squad. When have you ever seen liberals do this? They don´t. Sorry, but this author is part of the problem.

I could have said that, but Mr. Smith says it soooooo much better. Could Mr. Smith please go to Washington and deliver this strong message?

Well, I think it´s mostly that he´s overseeing the demise of the GOP, rather than single-handedly orchestrating it. But he´s doing his best to kill it, don´t misunderstand me. I just think a lot of other folks have had a hand in helping kill it off. Like all those who think the Tea Party and standing for conservative and Constitutional principles are bad things, to be avoided at all costs. :bleaksigh:

John Boehner has the toughest job in Washington and there are those in the party who will not be happy with any move he makes. He has my sympathy and I believe the writer of this piece is being hysterical.

Some are concerned about the survival of the GOP. Others are concerned about the survival of the Constitution. Boehner is in the first category.

Boehner is not alone, but stands as the spokesperson for those that have already killed the GOP. The demise has already occurred, as evidenced in the election. True conservatives, however, will not die because their values are based on deeply rooted principles that cannot be compromised. Until more of the population shares those convictions, the entitlement distributors and their grateful recipients are in charge.

Republicans are the "real" party. They don´t wallow in denial or live to the vote today. That we leave to the democrats.
Republicans have been going to the left, which necessitated the TEA party.
Boehner needs to think:
Is for the Constitution?
Is he for smaller government?
Is he for the individual?
Is he for growth and jobs for all who want to work?
OR
Is he for taxing more, so that Obama can flush it down the sewer with THE most stupid spending bills ever known to man?
Obama is addicted to spending and Boehner and Republicans do not have to enable his bad habit.

Politics is the only job class in thw world where they take, steal if you will, our money, waste it, blame us and demand more...Boehner is a disingenuous liar, or he would have an honest line of work.
Trusting in one man to save everybody and everything died out when George Washington died.
He´s a progressive, doesn´t know the faintest thing about the Constitution of the United States and is poised to sell it all for nothing but empty promises and some "I saved everybody´s bacon, re-elect me next time" photo- ops.
I cannot believe anyone thinks he can be trusted to do aything but what he has done in the past, what they all have done in the past, and that is to stand on our necks.

Boehner is a spineless RINO and he has been dealt a weak hand by 5 million of us not showing up on Nov 6. Is he doing the best he can with cards he has got? Only the future will tell. Those who instantly jump on him have no viable alternatives beside mass political harakiri.

If Boehner is not gone in the next congress, and replaced with an articulate and visionary conservative, the GOP is useless. Time for a new party. Maybe the new Bull Moose Party, perfect if a little diesely sounding for Sarah Palin. But leaders should be looking for candidates now. Boehnerism will include changing the laws to make it nearly impossible for the new Bull Moose to qualify.

I was shocked at Boehner´s comments on revenue increases on "the wealthy." If I thought that this punitive tax increase--which is what it is--would improve the economy, I would be for it. But it won´t! It won´t even make a dent in the deficit and will take more money out of the economy. It´s a job killer and a recession-inducer. I think Boehner needs to go. We need someone with principles.

I´ve voted in every election since I was 18, and for the first time in my life, I´m seriously considering not voting again.

I can´t stand the Dem/Socialist/Communist party, and I´ve come to despise the RINO-led Republicans almost as much because they´re Dem lite. Why bother?

I´m more convinced than ever that the U.S. is going to have to hit a Greece-level crisis before anything is done.

For the past few decades, DemonRATS have leaped to the left, looked back and complained that Repugs are "extremely right." Today, the RNC management and many elected"professional´ politicians stand where the DemonRATS were way back when.

Maybe the demise of the GOP will allow the TEA party--or their equivalent--to rise like a phoenix and bring back adherence to Constitutional principles.

I didn´t leave the party, the RNC betrayed me.

John is playing the old game of Two Parties, One Nation. aka, we all want the same thing.

The Democrats are playing a different game: One Party, Our Nation, Forever.

John is an adequate team captain for the old game. A lot of those we call RINOS have a similar skill set and mind set. They can achieve nothing, the game has changed.

An interview yesterday offers proof that Sarah Palin has really gotten under Obama’s skin.

In the midst of a discussion of his recent shopping trip to The Gap, the President stated: “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” (snip) It is quite obvious that the reason the 2009 mockery

We have been so absorbed by the cavalcade of government incompetence and individual hurt produced by the rollout of ObamaCare that it is easy to forget the tragedy-in-waiting should this federal healthcare takeover stay in place: the death panel, also known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). This is the group of political appointees designed to allow the federal government to use a combination of medical and social criteria to determine the healthcare an individual receives. Or, to put it as bluntly as Sarah Palin did, to determine who lives and who dies. Why am I thinking about that now?

Ezekiel Emanuel – brother of Rahm, with whom he shares a charm deficiency – shared his behind-the-scenes stories in the recent Wall Street Journal essay “Inside the Making of Obamacare.” To my ear, Emanuel’s abrasiveness and arrogance in his radio and television appearances undermine his defense of ObamaCare, and this piece of writing likewise does little to improve my opinion of President Obama or his signature law. Emanuel is often called the “the architect of ObamaCare.” Although no one person put together the Rube Goldberg contraption of a law, Emanuel was certainly a key player. He describes his role in the

Recently I watched the documentary Breeders, which I recommend to everyone – gay and straight, liberal and conservative. The documentary, produced by Jennifer Lahl at the Center for Bioethics and Culture, exposes the ethical dangers posed by the practice known as “surrogacy.” Surrogacy is the use of a contract, by which a woman agrees to carry a gestating child in her womb for another party (usually an infertile heterosexual couple or a gay male couple), and also agrees to abandon the child to the couple who has engaged her services. Compensated surrogacy means that the carrier is paid to rent out her

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
