Boehner Will Support Obama´s
Syria Plan — ´This Is Something
The Country Needs To Do´

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/3/2013 11:38:35 AM

Both House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that they would support President Barack Obama´s plan for limited military action in Syria, with Boehner saying that it´s "something the country needs to do." Both addressed reporters after a meeting Tuesday morning between Obama and Congressional leaders on Syria. "I´m going to support the president´s call for action, and I believe my colleagues should," Boehner said. Boehner´s support is significant for passage in a couple of ways. He rarely gets out publicly ahead of his Republican conference, so it suggests that he feels strongly a

No surprise. We don´t know what the Emperor has on Boehner, but he must go. The Republicans will not remove him as Speaker. Just another reason why we need a new party.

If anyone is still wondering if Boehner can stand up to Obama, this is the final straw. Boehner can be bought and should just change his R to a D. What a weenie!

First he calls in Johnnie and Miss Lindsey to remind them what (blackmail) information he has they don´t wish to get out to the general public. (Lindsey, we all know you´re gay already.) Now he´s twisting John Boehner´s arm. I wonder what he has on Speaker Boehner???

I hope there are some clean, honest, upright, un-blackmail-able Republicans left to vote against this atrocious idea. We allowed 140,000 Syrians to be murdered, but we are going to war over the latest 400? Something is wrong here.

Boehner is too simple minded for his position. There are lots of alternatives:

1. Pass no bill. Leave the decision and resposibiltiy in Obama´s hands, so he garners attendand political fallout.

2. Pass a bill that authorize Obama to attack only if the U.N. authroizes the action, thereby separating the Republicans from the eventual decision and attendant politial fallout.

Hopefully the other members will make Boehner irrelevent.

Boehner said that only the U.S. has the "capability and the capacity" to respond to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad´s alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people on Aug. 21.

"The use of these weapons has to be responded to," Boehner said.


And he´s positive that Assad used the weapons and not the rebels?

No matter who used the weapons to kill the people ... all we are going to do is kill more of them. Does Boehner want to be responsible for that? Killer of the House?

What does that solve?

FTA: ""The use of these weapons has to be responded to," Boehner said.

Why this time and not the last time? Waiting for all the usual suspects to begin posting why we should continue to support the establishment republicans. This is irrefutable evidence that there isn´t a lick of difference between the two parties that are systematically destroying this country. There were many times in the past I have posted that the Barbarians are at the gate. Well no more; they are inside and holding the keys.

so we the people have absolutely no say in this. I believe there must be a ´´live boy/dead girl´´ episode in Boehner´s background. There´s got to be a damn good reason he´s such an easily manipulated goof.

At the same time, this could just be ´´business as usual´´ in DC. I´m reading This Town - it´s a real eye opener for anyone who still believes we have any political muscle as voters...

Since the Carter Administration, The U>S> has been doing its very best to wreck our relations with virtually every Nation in the Mid-East. John Boehner´s statement is just the latest turncoat decision for the U>S> Hey, why should he care what the overwhelming majority of Americans want. He was voted in to think for himself, not for Americans. In my opinion, we do not need to take military action anywhere outside of our borders at this time.

All those years when Pelosi and Reid actively undermined Bush and America must not have bothered Boehner, Cantor and McCain one bit.

I am not saying they need to undermine America, but could these born losers at least learn a little bit about opposition from the Dems? They didn´t even make Obama lift a finger!

Yeah, that´s it: BO has "something" on Boehner. Can´t possibly that Boehner, like many, think this it the right thing to do. You can quibble about how we got here and how late in the day it is, but why wouldn´t he support an effective response? Tossing a few missiles, no, but a punishing attack? How can anyone oppose that.

I don´t like Boehner either, but sometimes a broken clock is right twice a day.

it is a shattering thing to read that Boehner is on board with this - what are the constituents from his district saying? Can they mount a recall campaign?

In so many ways, Obama has gone it alone and made many things, including Syria, so much worse. He said he didn´t need Congress(he never did before). Let him do it on his own. Let Congress vote "present". And see what happens. Once Congress votes to approve, he will take credit if it goes well and blame Congress if it doesn´t. The man has no clue running anything except his community activism. Obama must have a lot of dirt on everyone in Washington because they all cave to his wishes.

The creature, Hussein, has previously stated he would always stand with his muslim brothers. He also provided his insight that the future does not belong to any who slander his profit of islam....IOW death to infidels. This pResident then allowed HIS ambassador and our brave US servicemen to die on the sands of Benghazi...terminating duty of any who would attempt to save them. This vile, evil, corrupt pervert is now one you will follow into battle? WTP do not agree. Take heed you trembling limp, weak kneed wimpy, man. The evil one has not changed his position in the slightest. Yet you still will not listen with the brain GOD gave you.

To not authorize would be pure political hypocrisy. For the GOP to not authorize this, yet to have been gung ho on Iraq would have been silly. Now, the decision to aid our enemy rests with Obama.

We went to war on the possibility of Hussein having weapons in Iraq. (Where did Syria get their WMD´s anyway?)

A strike on Syria pretty much guarantees Iran/Hezbollah strike Israel. Just the way Obama wants it. To TOTUS it is Israel that is the real enemy. General Barack Hussein Obama commander in chief of the Al-Qeeda Air Force. This will not go well.

I´m simply stunned. I´m also fed-up with being stunned by this regime.

And now Boehner is asking the House to support this? And the Republicans are helping Obama mend his global reputation? Is this right? Are we actually worried about his reputation?

Do Republicans in Congress actually believe Obama cares anything about them? Don’t they know he will destroy them (again) if things don’t work out? Are we that stupid?

There is no plan to win this. We haven’t had a plan to “win” any war since World War II (regardless of the President’s and the Pentagon’s doggedness plan for heavy bombing in Vietnam, it still didn’t work).

And now, after all the revelations by the UN and reports from ABC news, we are still interested in going into Syria knowing full-well there is a possibility the Muslim Brotherhood gassed these people?

Don’t you think the Muslim Brotherhood understands public opinion/politics too? Didn’t they receive influence and morale boosting from Obama during visits to the White House?

Incredible. I´m simply stunned.

WHY are we involving ourselves in a muslim war? They have no compunction about murdering/terrorizing each other. Our goal should be protecting civilized people from their jihad against all non-muslims. Our government (with muslim czars) is using the "brilliant" Democrats and their acceptance of Marxism to turn country-after-country over to our enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood/al Qeada. The Dems envision Globalization, but I think Obama envisions an Islamic world, with himself as the Ruler of All.

Before 2008 I was always proud of the USA. Even when Obama was elected in 2008 I was still proud of America. We have never been perfect and we have made our fair share of mistakes at home and abroad. But through it all we always strove to do the right thing as a nation and as a people.

Since 2008 we have been changing into a nation I no longer recognize and admittedly I am repulsed by. Our politicians are only interested in themselves and unfortunately 99% are complete idiots. It is easy to say it is all Obama´s fault but it is not his entirely. We have supported and voted for these fools and we are the bigger fools for having done so.

Boehner´s actions today are those of a man who no longer understands what it means to be an American. Instead he is just another politician that can be found in any cesspool. When the bombs fall and children and civilians die the media will turn on them. When Syria becomes an Islamist state and a group arises like the Taliban did after the Russians left Afghanistan, what will they have accomplished?

I miss the United States of America that I once knew and loved. Unfortunately, everyday it is becoming clearer and clearer to me that she will not be returning.

#34, because the powers that be have not proven that Assad did it. It is more reasonably the work of the rebel opposition, trying to lure the U.S. into being al Quida´s air force. The ´opposition´ in Syria has been caught with sarin gas before, BTW. And why now? Why do we need to get into this just to keep Obama from being embarrassed because he shot off his big mouth about ´red lines?´ This is his doing. He wants to be able to brag about how big and brave HE is if it works (ala ´I got bin Ladin´), and blame the Republicans for making him do it if it turns out badly. Either way, the U.S. does not benefit. WE HAVE NO DOG IN THIS FIGHT!

Why wait another week or so and a lengthy Congressional debate to start the bombardment of Syria as the wimpy Republican leadership in the Congress has already caved?

As soon as the so-called collateral damage starts showing up, Obama will now be able to blame the Republicans.

The next big decision that Obama and the liberal Democrats will most probably make on Syria is to resettle a couple of million mostly poor Muslim refugees into the USA, recognizing that once eligible, that vast majority of them would become liberal Democrat voters in the years ahead.

If the wimpy Republicans put up an initial squawk, the liberal Democrats will threaten to call them out the Republicans as Islamophobe racists for opposing what could well be an open ended refugee flow from the Middle East. In a short time the wimpy Republicans would cave on that policy shift also, they always do in the end when the race card is played against them.

No Johnny, this is something the country doesn´t need to do. Why do we "need" to put American servicemen´s lives at risk because of an internal civil war? There is no eminent threat to this country. I say turn this whole situation over to the United Nations and let that gifted body decide what to do in all of it´s infinite wisdom. If not now when, and if not this issue then what issue is serious enough for them to take action on? It´s put up or shut up time. This ain´t our pig and it ain´t our farm.

Actually, this is brilliant. Unintentionally, probably, but brilliant nonetheless. Let the GOP leadership vote yes and the rank and file republicans vote no along with some of the dems. In the end, congress can vote it down, but Obama will have trouble claiming the republicans just want to thwart him.

This makes no sense and reflects very badly on Boehner. There may well be more to this than the public is being told - but if there is, now is the time to inform the American public of the real reasons behind what appears to be an act of gratuitous folly whose like I cannot recall. Nor am I at all happy with the failure of people like Boehner and McCain to explain and justify their claims that the use of nerve gas in a civil war is a threat to the U.S. or that intervening in that civil war will remove the alleged threat to the U.S.

These people cannot be as stupid and ignorant of history as they seem. They must have information or knowledge of objectives they have not shared with the American people. I don´t like that one bit, regardless of the rest of the story.

It begins to look like everyone in Washington needs to go home and a whole new crew sent in. The latter may not not any better, but it is hard to see how they could do any worse.

What happened to the United Nations? Aren´t they supposed to be issuing a report as to who did what to whom? Are they supposed to deal with trouble like this? What is the rush to act before they even have the chance to display their usual ineffectiveness? (The U.N. passed resolutions against Hussein for 20 years I believe, all of which he isgnored).

Obama is acting like a drunken, insane gunslinger and an American bully who doesn´t give a flip what "the rest of the world thinks." I thought that was GWB, not Obama. I thought the whole idea was to "lead from behind" so that "the rest of the world" would love us and be our friends. Is THIS the way to do that?

No it certainly isn´t Mr. Boehner. What the Country needs to do is focus on electing people next year who will kick you and other Obama excusers to the curb and start working on turning this economy around. Since you refuse to work on that.

I really want him to answer the question of why he thinks this country needs to put our military in the path of people who behead others and eat their innards? That will play real well just before an election year, won´t it?

I knew that this eunich was a hack a long time ago. Everytime Boehner has a chance to support the interest of the American people he folds like a cheap suit. From the first debt ceiling battle to Benghazi and now this. I don´t know what Axelgrease and co have on this doofus but he needs to be relieved of his speakership ASAP. And is it me or does Johnny boy look like he´s taking sips out of a flask every few hours? Maybe it´s stress or having his head up the presidential wahzoo. Who knows but maybe that´s the problem.

#49 forget about the UN as Obama can´t go back there. He closed off that international avenue by misleading both the UN and the Russians about his true intent on getting them to pass a UN resolution authorizing a limited use of force in Libya, then bombed the entire country for an extended period instead. With that, Obama burned his UN bridge and can´t expect any help from the UN on future use of force proposals, as the Russians have not forgotten and will probably use their veto to stop any future Obama use of force proposal.

There was a discussion on Rush´s program today. This scenario is similar to Sarejavo and Bosnia. I guess you´d have to study this and find the similarities.

I´ve come to a simple conclusion, the only one I believe can explain the betrayals Republicans commit against Americans on a daily basis. The powers-that-be hoovered trillions of our dollars via the economic stimulus. That is more than enough to buy off everyone in government, Republicans included. They´re bought and will stay bought.

I really don´t see any point in going to the polls & voting for repubs. Once they get to DC & get invited to the WH for dinner they change into dems. Once the immigration & the Syria plans are passed by the repubs it will be time for a third party.

Foolish Republicans project good and honest motives onto Obama. This is a mistake. And a guy like Boehner thinks highly of the institution of the presidency and wants to respect it, but can´t comprehend that a character like Obama is not worthy of presidential respect. Boehner needs to retire and return to his family Ohio bar where life is simpler and where his intuition about people is still valid. His instincts are all wrong for this Washington and this character Obama.

NATO Commander Calling for ‘Pause’

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip Breedlove, a U.S. Air Force general, was asked if the number of U.S. forces stationed in Europe should

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it. If you expect your average annual income over the first 10 years you are out of school to be $50,000, be really, really careful about taking

SANTA FE, N.M. —A national political magazine has released secret audio recordings of Gov. Susana Martinez, and it’s causing quite a reaction both here in New Mexico as well as across the country.Mother Jones penned an article recently that asked if Martinez was the next Sarah Palin. The article featured several recordings of the governor. Some believe what Martinez is heard saying could jeopardize her political aspirations. The recordings were published by Mother Jones, who said they’re from four years ago. The reporter said his article sheds light on a side of Martinez the public has never seen before, a

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will headline a SHE-PAC rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27th for conservative Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst, who has taken a two-point lead over a liberal Republican businessman who had been leading before Palin endorsed Ernst. The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
