Posted on 11/07/2012 1:40:18 PM PST by ConservativeMan55
House Speaker John Boehner offered Wednesday to pursue a deal with a victorious President Barack Obama that will include higher taxes "under the right conditions" to help reduce the nation's staggering debt and put its finances in order.
This guy.. this guy.. I can’t even find the right words to describe him right now.
When Republicans “compromise” it means... just completely caving!!
This is not what they were sent to DC to do. So mad right now.
Boehner doesn’t understand he’s talking to a Moslem bomber. Do nothing and 0bama gets everything he wants. Why negotiate ?
Quick! Give him a saw and send his ass out on the branch.
Please read the other thread that was posted. Boehner used the word “revenues” but said that tax rates would not go up.
This is article is misleading.
LOL! We posted within two minutes of each other.
Curse you, ConservativeMan55 and your fast typing skills!
The only thing Boehner understands is.. bend over here it comes again.
Why yes Mr President I’d love to bend over again.
One thing is already certain. Anything good that comes from this, Obama will get the credit. And anything bad that comes from this, the Republicans will get the blame. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that will profit.
Let it burn. Obama’s goal is to destroy America, and if we want to save America, we shouldn’t stand in his way. The only hope for America is that in four years we face a disaster that makes 2008 look like a Sunday picnic.
This is going to make the Clinton years look like nothing.
When you lose, you lose. Boehner is in an impossible political situation. No matter what he does, Obama and the media will portray the house Republicans for driving the country over (the new clever catchphrase) the dreaded fiscal cliff. Fact is this economic story can’t possibly end well. Monumental debt, endless entitlements, deficits both state and federal,dollar printing and unfunded liabilities as well as further economic contraction as Obama unleashes his dreaded anti capitalist EPA. Boehner probably should just get out of the way and let the Obama clown parade go over the cliff themselves. There is really almost nothing he can do.
Indeed, let it burn.
The only way to save America, at this point, is to let them destroy it.
In four years, the cause of this disaster will still be with us - 60 million voters who vote solely to keep their food stamps and disability checks flowing. And they will be joined by another 20-30 million voters who will be voting solely to keep their free government health care flowing.
My apologies to Benjamin Franklin. Our Republic has been lost.
...Because he’s never ever even once done his ‘Lucy/Football’ thing with us before so of course we should believe in his historic determination to not capitulate....
Ah, but what if there are no more freebies because the gov’t goes bankrupt?
