Boehner tells GOP he’s through
with one-on-one Obama talks

The Hill (DC), by Russell Berman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/3/2013 4:50:35 AM

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is signaling that at least one thing will change about his leadership during the 113th Congress: he’s telling Republicans he is done with private, one-on-one negotiations with President Obama. During both 2011 and 2012, the Speaker spent weeks shuttling between the Capitol and the White House for meetings with the president in the hopes of striking a grand bargain on the deficit. Those efforts ended in failure, leaving Boehner feeling burned by Obama and, at times, isolated within his conference.

Dah...who would have been numb brained enough to negotiate with a "community organizer" who knows nothing but how to campaign in the first place?

Well,this is a positive development with Boehner realizing the futility of negotiating with yourself.Obama´s not a serious person who has the whole country´s well being at heart.His biggest concern is staying on the good side of the celebrity cult faction of the country.These are the people spreading STDs like wildfire,showing up at a social service office every day with a new crisis that needs "emergency grants".

I´mnot crazy about the job Boehner´s doing but I´m not ready to burn him at the stake either.

The biggest problem the republicans have is they´ve been trapped in the politics of reaction instead of presenting new ideas to fix old problems.Even so called conservatibe think tanks aren´t producing any solutions to challenge the left. There´s an old saying that people will vote for a lousy plan,vs. no plan and that´s why the left is winning right now.

Bush should have focused on healthcare after 2004 instead of SS privatization which was a huge loser with seniors to begin with.

We´re stuck with Obamacare because the right didn´t push hard enough on a private sector solution to healthcare.Even a sliding scale voucher program would have worked.

Now you´re going to have millions of more people storming the healthcare system without paying one dime out of pocket. They´ll show up for care in a brand new pair of Ugg boots and designer hand bags while claiming poverty..

The only cost containment I see in Obamacare is pushing old people off the planet.

I am glad to see Boehner has given up on mission impossible. I think he would have been criticized if he had not tried. How could that have been justified?

I saw Darrell Issa on Greta´s show last night and he said he believes the day will end with Tammy Faye Boehner still leading the House. I thought we were supposed to be through with the ´back room´ meetings years ago and that´s why the sunshine laws were passed. Actually, I don´t trust him OR Zippy. I always figure he(Boehner) is going to give away the store.

He should never have agreed to any one-on-one, he said-he said meetings anyway. No smart person would. You always always ALWAYS need a witness, someone else to verify what REALLY took place.

Then again, if he´s not Speaker any more, of COURSE he´d have no further 1:1´s with the Raider of the Free World.

What #5 and #19 said. And so the tedious circular firing squad among Republicans continues into the new year. No wonder obama and the rest of them are hysterical with laughter! All they need to do is watch while the GOP cannibalizes our own on a daily basis. John Boehner is doing the best he can with little or NO support from fellow GOPers, but armchair quarterbacking is just so much fun! He tried to save some of OUR money by questioning the $60-$80 Billion dollars for "hurricane sandy" and see where that got him...

I have long wondered about the so called circular firing squad. Seems to me the reason is simple. We do not have any leaders. All we have are professional politicians who reach across the aisles, curry favor with media, feather their own nests,etc. Then we have the Dems. When I take aim at a Repub it is due to the fact they are supposed to be better than the Dems. That is why I have given donations, voted and given time and effort to supporting the GOP. Am I supposed to pretend they are not betraying my trust? Am I to say: well they are doing their best? Not once did I point my ire at DeMint, Palin, West and a few, very few others. Those who want me to keep supporting the elected elites and not criticism them must want me to be mute, dumb, and accept betrayal with a smile. Why. I have to ask myself why and what kind of agenda wants me to suck it up all the time no matter what if it is from the GOP. To what end? I can only imagine that the only purpose is to the end of our country with a whimper and not a bang. Personally, I prefer to go out with a bang. Repubs do not represent the best interests of me or my country any more. Boehner is the Democrats best friend. He is their useful idiot. With Repubs like Boehner who needs enemies.

Why are so many Republicans attacking the one leader we´ve got. You don´t see Democrats attacking Nancy Pelosi. talk radio clowns gin up irrational internecine hostility. They profit hand over fist by proclaiming their "conservative principles" as they actively destroy the only viable opposition party to the Socialism. America was a better place before Fox News and Talk Radio. Conservatives have fled the mainstream and hidden away, insulating themselves from participation/ influence in the public square in favor of cultivating purist ideology in a bomb shelter of common sentiment. Viva, Boehner.

For conservatives, the story of the Obama years has been the depressing spectacle of Republicans fighting a rearguard action covering their retreat from a Democratic agenda backed by superior numbers. Republicans began the Obama administration with effectively no leverage: Barack Obama in the White House, Nancy Pelosi in the speaker’s chair, and Harry Reid running the Senate. The outcome of that was the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, the worst domestic defeat for the cause of limited government in a generation. The 2010 congressional elections gave Republicans some relief in the form of a House majority empowered to contain

Senate Democrats struggle to define

Democrats are going into the 2014 midterm elections with their control of the Senate greatly imperiled and with the prospect of an Obama presidency completely hobbled in its final two years. In response, the president and his party are struggling to come up with a broad economic message that can rebut, or at least deflect, the continued GOP assaults on the president and his new health-care law. Thus far, what they have produced is a smaller, more targeted approach — one that seeks to gin up the enthusiasm that has been lacking in key parts of their base, but that

In closing, he asked what may have turned out to be a somewhat prophetic question. How much of an uproar would there have been if Marius had belonged to a more aggressive, less cuddly species? Probably no death threats if he was Marius the alligator, I assume. Well, AP, it looks like we may have at least a partial answer to that query.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Oral arguments at the Supreme Court on Tuesday in the Conestoga Wood Specialties and Hobby Lobby case showed bureaucrats and special interest groups led by the abortion lobby are willing to coerce you to participate in anything they say is a “right,” especially abortion. The government´s view is so extreme that Justice Anthony Kennedy was inspired to ask whether the government´s theory means a business “could be forced in principle to pay for abortions,” and that families in business “just don´t have any standing to vindicate [their] religious rights.” “You’re right,” declared U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli.

While we’ll never know exactly how the phone call went, if you read how the Obama administration described the conversation between Putin and Obama, and how the Russians described it, you’d think they were two completely different phone calls. Here’s the readout from the Obama admin: President Obama underscored to President Putin that the United States continues to support a diplomatic path in close consultation with the Government of Ukraine and in support of the Ukrainian people with the aim of de-escalation of the crisis. President Obama made clear that this remains possible only if Russia pulls back its troops and does

Fast cars, luxury yachts, international five-star resorts, top-shelf liquor and fine china from Bloomingdale’s — this sounds like a rap song, but this is the life of some members of Congress. For example, Rep. Rob Andrews (D-NJ) was exposed in a 60 Minutes investigation for spending leadership PAC money on the items listed above. And, my guess: he isn’t alone. We, the taxpayers, shouldn’t accept this behavior; we must fight it.

Melowese Richardson is the poster girl for vote fraud.

This might be below Chicago graveyard standards, but it’s still impressive.

The Spartans needed only 300 men to hold off tens of thousands of Persians and their allies at Thermopylae. To chitchat with his fellow democratic leaders of the G-7 this week in Europe, Barack Obama required 900, including a small air force and private army. Given how very little is accomplished at any of these diplomatic gatherings (and in particular this one, which came up with a most mealy-mouthed denunciation of Russia’s invasion of Crimea), the fact that our still-global celebrity president feels the need for an entourage befitting an Ottoman Sultan is a perfect example of government decadence in

Attn: Kosher butchers. You know that contraceptive mandate now before the Supreme Court? Turns out it may affect your freedom to keep kashrut — not to mention your living. At least, that is the opinion of the solicitor general of the United States, Donald Verrilli. He’s arguing the case for the Obama administration. And the claim is that for-profit corporations such as Hobby Lobby have no right to make free-exercise claims under the First Amendment. Justice Samuel Alito raised the issue of kosher and halal slaughterhouses during the oral arguments. It hasn’t generated much press attention, but it made for a fascinating exchange.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators.
