Eleventh Hour:Speaker
Boehner Moves To The Right

Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/3/2013 10:59:15 AM

The Speaker of the House will be elected today and some conservatives believe they have the votes necessary to oust John Boehner. In an appearance on CNBC, American Majority Action spokesman Ron Meyer said there are more than 20 House Republicans willing to vote for someone other than Boehner on Thursday when the 113th Congress convenes to elect a Speaker. Another source from a different organization has similarly confirmed that more than 20 have planned to oppose Boehner.

He said the same thing in 2010 ?! Then some advice for the real conservatives in the House: ´Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.´ . I am sick of hearing the Republican leadership reacting to what the Dems do. Where is the leader with a brain and a backbone to act first and make the Dems react ? Where is the non stop pr that the republicans need to tell people that we are heading for the cliff and NO ONE is going to be left on solid ground ?

Wow, Déjà Vu all over again. I remember how McLame and Grahmnesty became right wingers a couple of months before their reelections. Too bad facing voters has no consequences as voters tend to forget the damage these ´rebublicans´ do prior to becoming faux conservatives for a few months.

It takes a Majority to elect a Speaker. Therefore any votes not for Boehner but for anyone other than Pelosi results in a second ballot. Pelosi would not be Speaker by plurality. Though Democrat votes could elect him Speaker with sufficient Republican votes to make a Majority.

Unfortunately, Allan West was defeated for re-election and is not there. He would have been the best bet for speaker because he´s not afraid of the Dems. I don´t know who in the House comes even close to his level of fearlessness. That´s why the Dems had to get rid of him and it worked. At this point, almost anybody would be better than Boehner.

Ok, I´m heading up the down staircase on this thread but, I repeat, John Boehner and anyone else in his position as House Majority leader, in this situation with the Dems holding the White House and the Senate has done a much better job than a lot of us expected him to be able to do. Those of you searching for your perfectly armed and always successful warrior are dreaming. If John Boehner pleases me, he upsets you. If he satisfies you, he upsets that guy over there. This is not an easy job, it´s tougher than any in Washington and I support him. Apparently, so do his troops. No one else could have accomplished more in this very difficult situation and on this particular bill. Let´s hold on the cannibalism, friends, it accomplishes nothing except to sate the cannibal. Bigger battles are ahead of us and they´ll arrive very quickly. Can we make an attempt to pull in the same direction for a change?

Electing a different Speaker doesn´t change the math
or the political reality.
Ending at 11:59 am EST today the 112th Congress
was comprised of 240 Republicans / 191 Democrats with 4 vacant seats.
As of noon today, the 113th Congress now has 233 Republicans
and 200 Democrats
with 2 vacant seats.
The Senate now has 45 Republicans ( down 2 seats ) ,
53 Democrats and 2 Indys who will caucus
and vote Democrat.
Anything passed in the House cannot pass the Senate with just Republican votes.

There was never a serious challenge to Boehner. Pelosi and Boehner slobbering all over each other now. How far we have fallen as a nation. Democrats know what to do with the tools at hand whether minority or majority. So, I don´t agree that because of the math, we should accept zero results from Boehner. Yeah, we are always told that bigger battles are ahead, so conservatives need to shut up. Funny, when the bigger battles come and we lose those too, we are still told to just keep supporting weak leadership.

#27, you say that we don´t have to accept the math? The math is a given. It´s not flexible. We´re outmanned, outgunned and outdealt because of those advantages. We can whine, but we cannot change the numbers. I´m not sure exactly what those who yell loudest at Boehner think is accomplished by yelling. We can accomplish the possible, bit by bit, but until the next election we are pretty much potted plants on the Washington stage.

Because of the math.

He moved to the right because there was simply no more room to move any further to the left.

I really haven´t been able to see much difference between him and Reid these last couple of weeks. They both bent over and gaveNØbama exactly what he wanted.

With the Republican Party officially becoming the French Party (truth in advertising), we can expect them to trash talk for about 20 seconds and then surrender to NØbama every time from now on. Handing their cajones to NØbama on a silver platter was a nice closing act. I guess they really don´t need them any more, since there isn´t a real man left among them any more...

Rick Perry brings CPAC crowd to its feet

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry delivered one of the best-received speeches so far at the Conservative Political Action Conference, bringing the audience to its feet and eliciting loud cheers Friday morning as he outlined a small-government vision and praised the accomplishments of fellow Republican governors. Perry, whose 2012 presidential campaign crumbled amid a series of missteps — including the infamous “oops” moment, in which he forgot one of the three federal agencies he wanted to abolish — is weighing another go-round in 2016, and his allies insist that this time, the campaign would go differently.

Armed men thought to be Russian have seized a Ukrainian military base in the Crimean city of Sevastopol. A Reuters news agency journalist said no shots were fired and negotiations between the two sides were going on. Interfax-Ukraine earlier reported that about 100 Ukrainian servicemen had been deployed at the base before the raid. Troops wearing Russian uniform without insignia and their supporters have blockaded bases in Crimea since taking control of the peninsula last week.

Last month, President Obama took an action making it easier for supporters of Islamist terrorists to be granted asylum in this country. At the same time, persecuted Christians face a brick wall at the Obama State Department in their efforts to secure refugee status, and a report this week reveals Israeli officials are now finding it more difficult to get simple visitor visas or to even renew existing visas. Why is all of this suddenly emerging? After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, none of us ever imagined a dozen years later we’d be negotiating with the Taliban in Afghanistan, supplying aid

The Obama administration announced a new policy on Wednesday that will allow many people to renew their existing insurance policies for two more years even though the policies don’t provide the comprehensive coverage and consumer protections required by the Affordable Care Act. The move is designed to provide political cover for Democratic senators facing tough re-election campaigns in Republican-leaning states where the president is especially unpopular. The Democrats have been hit with a barrage of attack ads from conservative political-action groups highlighting the cases of individuals who complained that they faced higher premiums when their old (less comprehensive) policies were canceled

Bob Costas got his infamous case of Olympic pink eye from botched Botox, a source claims to Page Six. NBC’s prime-time Olympics host, who had to take a six-day absence after coming down with viral conjunctivitis in both eyes, contracted the infection after a Botox procedure to smooth out wrinkles prior to the Olympics. Our source said, “Bob’s eye infection was due to botched Botox. This isn’t the first time he’s had it.” NBC strongly denies that Costas — who arrived to host the games in Sochi with a forehead smoother than the Olympic luge track — developed the infection from a

Even as it has grown into a new type of digital money worth billions of dollars, Bitcoin has always retained an air of mystery. Central to its cachet has been the mythic status of the system’s creator. Its developer went by the name Satoshi Nakamoto, but that is all that Bitcoin’s adopters seemed to know — or wanted to know. After all, Bitcoin was a project dedicated in part to making it easier to avoid the all-seeing gaze of the government and corporate America. But the inventor of the virtual currency may not be quite the international man of mystery that some

Only one in 10 uninsured people who qualify for private plans through the new marketplaces enrolled as of last month, one of the surveys shows. The other found that about half of uninsured adults have looked for information on the online exchanges or planned to look. The snapshots from the surveys released Thursday provide preliminary answers to what has been one of the biggest mysteries since HealthCare.gov and separate

In recent weeks, President Obama has made a $10.10 minimum wage the centerpiece of his economic agenda. But early last year, White House strategists rejected a figure so high, worried that it could destroy jobs and anger the business community just as the regulation-heavy Affordable Care Act was about to take effect. Instead, former officials say, the White House settled on a more cautious path, unveiling a $9-an-hour minimum wage proposal — a target even lower than Obama had proposed during the 2008 campaign. “We wanted to ensure it was a moderate increase in the minimum wage so we didn’t spark any

One possible answer to the query is, “No, it wasn’t.” That one was given by James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, and CIA spokesman Todd Ebitz, who both made statements to the effect that the US intelligence community “included warnings of possible scenarios for a Russian military intervention in Ukraine.” James Clapper has more than a bit of a general credibility problem regarding statements to the American public about intelligence, however.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.
