Boehner Unloads At Conservative
Groups That Oppose The Budget Deal:
´This Is Ridiculous!´

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 12/11/2013 11:16:54 AM

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans

Anything that Patty Murray agrees too cannot be good for the nation or taxpayers.

Mark my words on this ... it won´t be conservative opposition that kills this deal.

It´ll be changes required by Dear Leader(US) and the Regime, who from all I read, had NOTHING (as usual) to do with the deal.

Boehner is so far over the line it´s getting ridiculous. The liberals Ryan, Boehner, McCain, McConnell & Cantor are destroying what´s left of the republican party. Boehner is like the WH always has his liberal back ups behind him for support. Can´t stand on his own two feet.

What´s the Heritage plan and how do they propose passing it and getting Obama to sign off on it?

Boehner had a CR deal with the Senate that kept all the sequester cuts in place but it wasn´t good enough for the defund caucus. How did that government shutdown affect Obamacare funding? It didn´t. 90% of the Obamacare funding is mandatory.

A question to ALL of you Ldotters whom are big supporters of Speaker Boehner:

Have you had enough of him yet?

If the good people of Ohio reelect this arse of a republican, it will be the same mistake made by the voters of Arizona when they kept McCain in the Senate.

Boehner has been in DC so long he´s has no idea what it´s like in the real world of paying taxes, paying for your own obamacare, limo rides, drinks, dinner, gasoline, air fare etc. I guess when the taxpayers foot your bills you live in the big you can´t touch me DC bubble.

Amen # 5 and # 10.
Boehner´s remarks were delivered yesterday when the usual whining from the usual groups
had begun-before any budget details had been released.
They whine and they fundraise .
DeMint forfeited his chance to influence Senate decisions by going for the big paycheck
and the private jet.
The rest of the usual whiners like Kibbe at
Freedom Works , Limbaugh, Levin et.al don´t have the stones to actually run for election where they could influential in making the sausage.
The usual suspects sit on the sidelines and throw rocks at every elected Republican .
The loudmouths should put their money where their big mouths are and run for office.
And try dealing with a House that´s nearly 50 % Democrat,
a Senate where Democrats have a 10 seat majority and a Democrat president.
These shady operatives make their living by convincing the gullible that the House is almost 100 % Republican
and in the Senate it´s the Republicans who have the 10 seat majority and the power.
They demand perfection when the political reality makes that impossible.
And they know it-it´s all about ginning up the radio ratings and the fundraising for their own personal gain.

DeMint left because he couldn´t stomach the RINOS any longer and could accomplish what he wanted to as a conservative.
This is a samo samo budget deal we´ve come to expect from RINO traitors..all the spending on the front end and cuts over the next 10 years..they never happen as experience has shown.

When I saw the headline, I knew which names would be lined up, as a previous poster said, mindlessly throwing rocks. We should not allow attention to be diverted from the disaster of Obamacare to "will the GOP shut down the government again". Yes, I know who shut it down, but I also know who always gets the blame and all of us should realize that nothing was gained from the shutdown fiasco. Paul Ryan has gotten probably the best deal possible, a long way from perfect, but at least we didn´t have to give away too much, we avoid the phony but loud accusations of being constantly obstructionist, and Obama gets no relief from Obamacare focus by the media and the nation.

The debt cannot be addressed until the deficit is less than zero. They aren´t even willing to do that.

#17. Your comments reflect the REAL problem with republicans; ie., they´re concerned with perception instead of concentrating on doing the right thing, and what´s best for the country.

I would argue the shutdown instigated by Senator Cruz (in particular), gained more respect for republicans, than any other single thing they´ve done over the past decade.

Ad hominem attacks against Jim DeMint are vile. No one here has personal knowledge of the circumstances surrounding his accepting his current position. This is exactly what it looks like. Those who can´t be persuasive based on the subject matter make personal attacks.

These attacks generally originate from those supporting compromise by conservatives. Without attacking a person, can you articulate a conservative reason why it is good government to increase spending or continue the disaster of Obamacare?

If a cat calls himself a dog long enough, does he become a dog? What is wrong with admitting you are not a conservative, if you are not a conservative?

Politics is not the art of compromise, it is the art of getting what you want. Sometimes you can use compromise to advance this purpose. The Progressives, like Pavlov, have trained Progressive Republicans to drool when they throw them a bone. How do you reverse this? You demand more. Our problem is not even mostly public perception, but where it is, we need perceived difference, not Washington-business-as-usual. Otherwise, we are fighting to move the bargain-point back to the middle. It takes courage. Stand fast. Fake conservatives need not apply.

I had hoped that Paul Ryan might have been able to teach muttonheaded Patty Murray some elements of finance 101. His could not have been a more difficult task. However, the outcome of all that effort is predictably negligible, probably a few degrees more in debt than we were before - and why? Democrats have been scared into producing a budget- finally- and Republicans continue to be scared out of their wits to challenge any realistic spending cuts.

The usual go-along-to-get-along crowd has arrived. Sorry, but "this is the best deal we could get" just doesn´t play anymore. Maybe 30 years ago, when we had no idea what was going on in the cloakrooms and back stairs. In the modern age, we have insider access, we are more informed on the ugly machinations of government. In short, you don´t have to be a 20 year RINO to know how to make it work.

That so many here would just shrug their collective shoulders and keep the out of control spending machine rolling is sickening. How do we know, the hard line conservative fiscal ideas wouldn´t work? We ain´t never tried them. We make a few squeeks, then give the Dems everything they want, everytime.

There is no disgrace in compromise when the other side is at least as strong as you are. There is a huge difference between that and giving away the store, which some of you seem to think Boehner & co. are doing.

How many more (so-called) shutdowns will it take to get some of you to realize it is a losing tactic? Most of the country just does not perceive such things as we do.

And as to dumping Boehner - who do you really think would be willing to challenge him, and where would he or she get the votes to unseat him? Some of you seem to think this is all some sort of movie or morality play, and you´re clamoring to fast-forward to the triumphant final scene. I just doesn´t work that way.

I´m guessing that this is supposed to be a dagger through the heart of Conservatives. The RINOs AND Democrats both want the Tea Party to kill it. Then they will all get praise from the media at the same time the media vilifies the Tea Party. Therefore Tea Party challenges will lose steam. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just a hunch.

The Moderates are at it again. To them, it is ok to have Government grow and allow more Socialism to creep in since the Dems have the votes. In other words, surrender our freedoms in the name of "it´s the best deal we can get". Well of course it is the best deal we can get if we do not FIGHT for freedom. You high brow Moderates are treasonous to America just like the Left. You give up because there are more of them than us. Shame on you for being ok with Socialism lite. Let the Left take America down, but why must you also be a part of our ruin? I realize the Moderates are butt kissers but I am a butt kicker and I will never go along with helping destroy this Country.

Since I don´t have a vote, it will be up to the House to get rid of Boehner. You posters, who want him out, had better move to his state, run for office, then try to get rid of him. Lots of luck.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with

John Podesta was just named as a new senior-level adviser to President Obama last week, but he´s already ruffling Republican feathers. In a profile published late Tuesday night by Politico Magazine, Podesta is quoted comparing Republicans to the infamous cult led by Jim Jones, who was responsible for the 1978 cyanide poisoning of more than 900 of his followers in Guyana.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans

CHINA - a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. (snip) Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes. An eyewitness said: "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
