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.

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.


Reply 17 - Posted by: altoona, 1/26/2013 5:14:32 PM     (No. 9141082)

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.

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.

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.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced Thursday that the Justice Department will seek to recapture Texas and return it to federal oversight for approval of all election law changes such as photo voter identification. Holder’s move comes after the Supreme Court in June freed Texas and other states from the requirement that all state election laws be approved in Washington, D.C. Holder’s move prompted outrage from Texas Senators Ted Cruz, John Cornyn and Governor Rick Perry. The three should also be angry with the Republican National Committee.

NASA´s Hubble Space Telescope has snapped a spectacular new image of an iconic nebula to celebrate its 23 years of peering deep into the heavens. The Hubble observatory, which launched on April 24, 1990, captured the Horsehead Nebula in infrared light, peering through obscuring veils of dust to reveal the object´s hidden features.

Roger Ebert loved movies. Except for those he hated. For a film with a daring director, a talented cast, a captivating plot or, ideally, all three, there could be no better advocate than Roger Ebert, who passionately celebrated and promoted excellence in film while deflating the awful, the derivative, or the merely mediocre with an observant eye, a sharp wit and a depth of knowledge that delighted his millions of readers and viewers. “No good film is too long,” he once wrote, a sentiment he felt strongly enough about to have engraved on pens. “No bad movie is short enough.”

On Jan. 8, 1968,Otis Redding´s "(Sittin´ on) the Dock of the Bay" was released on Stax´s Volt label. Co-written by Redding and guitarist Steve Cropper, the single reached No. 1 on Billboard´s pop chart in March 1968, where it remained for four weeks. Two Grammys followed, along with the song´s induction into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998. Redding never heard the single.

Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
