Boehner to Obama: "We want you to succeed" (ABC Radio, no link)
ABC Radio News ^ | 11/8/2012 | N/A

Posted on 11/08/2012 5:20:48 AM PST by matt1234

On the radio this morning, I heard Boehner say to Obama in a public address: "We want you to succeed." You know who Boehner's trying to contrast himself with, dont you? I knew you did.

He’s likely trying to preempt the “party of No” attacks Obama and the Media are preparing.

Hopefully it’s temporary rhetoric. He needs to stay firm until the fiscal cliff, then let the D-senate come begging for a compromise. Better to go over the cliff than pull up short.

“Oh, for the love of God in Heaven, Boehner - just SHUT UP.”

Really? He’s basically the only thing standing between us and Obama/Reid and the UN. You want him to sit down and shut up?

more paternalistic stoking of the tiny ego of the fatherless affirmative action president

Looks like Boehner is volunteering to be barrys “big brother”, kind of like GWB did with Bubba

homework help, field trips, midnight basketball, maybe even lunch out a few times. Barry is lost without Reggie, lil Barry has no male role models to show him how to be a man.... no, Axelrod Ayers and Plouffe dont count

Yea Boehner, after that rambling long nothing speech yesterday I am aware that you want him to succeed. If you instead wanted the US to succeed you would have been out there promising to make the upcoming debt limit - THE DEBT LIMIT.

Don’t buy in to the politics of personal gain. The American people need to be the winners, not necessarily the President. But, in this case, the President has only picked losing propositions and we all lost. So, a success for Barry means lining the pocket of his supporters. How about doing things that allow us to at least keep some of our earnings and not pass massive debt along to future generations?

Raise it or keep it, it matters not.

The US will once more lose a credit rating grade.

And we’re going over the fiscal cliff. Those who elected 0bama are dependent on a puff of smoke to support them, and it will soon dissipate.

Boehner to Obama: "We want you to succeed"

You see? We really didn't lose as much as we thought yesterday. We'd still have useless John Boehner as Speaker.

The House is the democrats next target in 2014. They want it all. They will blame EVERYTHING bad that happens in this nation on the GOP controlled House

Like it or not, Obama just won re-election. If Boehner wants the Republicans to maintain control of the House come 2014 he has to sound concilatory. Otherwise he risks looking mean and spiteful. We need to hand over ownership of this terrible economy to the Dems. Do we really want to be blamed for going over the fiscal cliff?

I want him to sit down and shut up if this is the tack he's going to take in dealing with Obama.

Boehnhead should be out there throwing down the gauntlet and standing up for REAL American ideals, not reaching out to make deals with the devil.

I have news for you: Republicans ARE NEVER going to be befriended or be anything but PATRONIZED by Democrats in the White House and Congress or by the Pravda-like media. Boner is poised to do nothiong but kiss up to these idiots and until he changes his tone and puts up a fight, YES he should shut up. Democrats got where they are by fighting, not by laying down and crying "Yes, Massa! Please don't whup me, Massa!" As I said elsewhere on here, we should not put up with save-asses or kiss-asses. They fall under the heading of RINO!

Don’t be so hateful that it makes you blind to reality.

Boehner has to appear like he’s willing to working with Democrats or they will portray him to the voters as obstructionist and the cause of us “falling off the fiscal cliff” as Van Hollen was already attempting to do yesterday.

I agree with that. There are also Obama voters in Ohio who ignored Obama’s war on coal and whose electricity comes mainly from coal. At least West Virginians came to their senses.

IMHO we've probably already crossed the point of no return for collapse.

Maybe it's time for him to succeed. Just get it over with and show the nation what unchecked liberalism does to a nation.

Stalemating and resisting the socialists may only slightly delay the inevitable while providing them cover for their evil ideology by giving them someone else to blame for our demise.

One plus is that we may be closer economically to where the soviets were just before they collapsed. So hopefully unbridled socialism won't last near as long as it did for those poor souls.

We'd certainly have to fight hard to prevent a "Putin" from rising out of the ashes. But I think an advantage Americans have is that they can still remember what freedom and capitalism felt like. I'm fairly confident that after collapse we'd unite for it.

Then, we put out the flames and rebuild.

1. They will do that regardless of what Boner does
2. Their side will be hurt more by the fall off the cliff than our side.

The best thing for him to do is shut up and wait for the phone to ring. D-senators will be begging for a compromise. If they don't offer enough, then sit back and wait for the cliff.

Not just your opinion, it's a fact. The only question is whether we default, hyperinflate, cut the entitlements or raise middle class taxes a lot (the only source of big money). My guess is that the pols will punt and let Bernanke buy the debt they create. The resultant inflation will take a few years to really kick in and they figure they'll have another plan by then or retire.

The best way to preclude death by inflation (for the rest of us) is to force the issue early. Make them go over the cliff and slash defense and other expenses and raise taxes. The backlash on the Dems will be huge and they will be ready to make a deal that can result in economic growth.

If conservatives can’t find a way to unite and work together then we are truly lost.

Too many conservatives insist politicians exactly mirror their own personal positions or they threaten to vote 3rd party.

Bonehead could drop his pants and let Berry have his way with him.

They would still say he’s refusing to work with them.

It does not matter what he does. They will paint him as an obstructionist.

Since that is what they are gone to do. You might as well be one.

Let it go until spring, then attach a repeal of Obamacare to any bill.

Dems do go along, then you are looking at people in the south not being able to pay for cooling during the summer.

Hit the dems with the bill again in the fall, second go round of no heat for the north.

Sooner or later Obama voters will get the message.

You are correct. The democrats misread this election as a mandate to drive us of the cliff. It was more akin to picking the winner of American Idol. The ignorants voted Obama because he’s black and they want to stick it to ‘the Man’. He’s cool! The bulk of the Obama voters are totally clueless about the severity of our fiscal situation and have no idea how inept a leader Obama is.

Boehner needs pressure from us, but he also needs support. Reid has no rock star appeal, he is widely despised. Boehner is smart to give Obama, Reid and Van Hollen enough rope to hang themselves. They will, as long as they force higher taxes and business-killing regulations. For all that this election was a disaster for the presidency and senate, it was a good result for the House, and we need to give Boehner some backbone to avoid another debacle like the 2010 Lame Duck session. If he holds, good. If he folds, then it’s time for Speaker Ryan.

I agree Boehner needs some competition and hopefully will be replaced. I don’t think Ryan is the right guy though, he’s not experienced enough nor does he have the connections. Plus it would likely hurt him if he were to run as Pres or VP in the future.

Your instincts are not lying to you. Obama will never cease to destroy our economic and fiscal base. This is Boehner’s way of giving Obama enough rope to hang himself. The masses that voted Obama back in were voting for the winner of American Idol. They are ignorant to the severity of our situation and don’t get involved. This is the lesson and contrast of the 2010 midterm election and now.

If Boehner can hold the line, fine. If he has another Lame Duck debacle like 2010, then out with him and in with Paul Ryan as Speaker.

Total bovine scatology. After the marxist muslim American-hating faggot illegal alien's 2008 election and the Rats concurrent win of the senate. The Communist party was in control of the executive, senate and house.

Millions marched on Washinton, D.C. to protest the take over of private companies, the theft of trillions of dollars, the takeover of 1/6 of the economy--free market health care turned into 3rd world socialized death care, etc, etc. This wasn't just bluster, because in 2010, real Americans came out in such numbers to kick the communists out of office and send a message to the neo-stalinists to blow it out your asses.

The voters gave the "Repubikicans" a mandate......."FIGHT G DAMN YOU!!!" Instead, Boner played with himself and appeased Obama. Cried and drank and probably played with Obama This is the main reason Repubican voters were not that enthusiastic this election. They watched closely as the checked-pant golf-shoed clad pussies caved to anything the Muslim wanted. Farking sickening.

I’m willing to give Boehner the benefit of the doubt and let him play this hand. We’ll know, shortly, whether this is a chess move or a sell out - then we act. I think we are better served by a different Speaker, maybe Ryan.

Had Boehner stood up and said somthing to the tune of - of course we have no plan to work with the president, the media would have skewered him over the coals. It would have been the hill we die on!

Meanwhile - Ried said the exact same thing a day earlier. Repercussion = 0.

Dude calm down. What exactly did you expect Boehner to say? I am no big fan, trust me, but it is self defeating to go out there and thump your chest when you just got your a$$ kicked.

Exactly what would you have recommended Boehner do? Refuse to congratulate the President on his win? Jump up and down and threaten to take the country off the cliff? Issue a press release to the American people emphasizing that they just re-elected a Marxist?

Acting childish in front of the American people would hurt Boehner, but more importantly it owuld hurt the entire Conservative movement. We will win elections when we can articulate our Conservative values and why they are superior to the garbage peddled by the left.

I think we are better served by a different Speaker, maybe Ryan. Agreed. Boehner is too entrenched in Beltway think for my perspective (not too mention everytime I turn around he is crying again). My only point is that his congratulatory statements are almost mandatory, unless you are setting up to get your party kicked out of office in 2014 that is.

I suspect that there will be compromises made and I will be quite disgusted as a result. In reality, however, we are going to need to give some ground in order to win in 2014 and 2016. Otherwise, we will be branded obstructionists and the Dems will hang any failures around our neck!!
