Boehner: Election a 'mandate to work together' with Dems (Time for Conservatives to part ways)
the hill ^ | 11/10/2012 | By Daniel Strauss

Posted on 11/10/2012 7:12:28 AM PST by tobyhill

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called it "critical" to avoid automatic spending cuts and tax-rate increases that could go into effect if Congress does not agree on a deficit-reduction plan.

Boehner's call during the weekly Republican address came after a week in which Republicans and Democrats moved away from focusing on Tuesday's presidential election and toward immigration reform and a deal to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff."

Boehner urged Congress to begin action on job creation and deficit reduction.

We don't need more "negotiations" that we always lose out on. America is on life support and negotiations will not save her. The only way to save America at this point is to let it crash and rebuild the right way. No more ghetto mooches. No more "freebies".

I agree with you and it would be nice if what Boehner said was code for doing just that: give King Hussein everything he wants and let it burn.

At this point, going off the fiscal cliff is the best thing that could happen to America.

Burn, baby, burn.

"Because if there was a mandate in this election, it was a mandate to work together to do what’s in the best interest of our country. And right now what’s best is getting our economy moving again and keeping it moving, so we can begin to restore our children’s future." Did Boehner say, "He won."? Six trillion dollars later ... it's all about the children. This guy's on our side? Won't anyone think of the children?!

We should avoid votes - or vote 'present'. Let the whole stinking mess belong to democrats.

It'll be fun watching the suck-ups at the New York Times spin the horror as our fault if we just let the dems do whatever the hell they want. Higher taxes? Fine. Sock it to the folks who create jobs. Go for it. More funds for lowlifes? Sure - bankrupt the country. They won the election the old fashion Chicago Way - they cheated...

Boehner doesn't realize The House of Representatives represents the will of the people and the will of the majority is the GOP does not negotiate with the Rats.

Radio talk show host Bill Cunningham describes Boehner has his friend and speaks highly of him. That said, they are criminals. Boehner you are a traitor and suck. These bastards are going to just open the floodgates. Hey Boehner, I hope you get cancer and die you worthless puke.

I just finished a new email to my congressman to remind him that the GOP still holds a firm majority in the house and did quite well in many races across the nation.

I ended by saying that I sincerely hope that there is a serious move afoot to remove the current speaker and replace him with one who understands what the word “majority” means.

Boehner is a god example of untreated liberal senile dementia.

He is now a virtual dim-bulb-crat and should be treated with all the contempt it deserves.

That's exactly what he did. He's kept his head down for a couple of months only to wait till he has the longest possible period to the next election to pop up wearing his donkey pin.

What is Boehner negotiating? The Bush Tax Cuts expire and Obama gets his tax increase without doing a thing and the GOP doesn't have to take one ounce of blame. Just get out of the freakin way and let it crash.

They could do that, but in the end, the Republicans would be blamed for it anyway.

How did this turkey get elected Speaker to begin with?

I guess it must have been his turn

He certainly wasn’t picked for his brilliance, his courage, his ability to get things done.

No one despises Nancy Pelosi more than I do, but damn what I wouldn’t give to have a Speaker for the Republicans wtih half of her Chutzpah.

Boehner is not a leader in any fashion.
He couldn’t lead a horny dog to a bitch in heat.

It should be mentioned that Sean Hannity is now in the amnesty camp. Savage played the audio yesterday from Hannity’s Thursday show where he claims to have “evolved”, and thinks that maybe now we should consider “a path to citizenship”. Curiously, Hannity had a fill-in host on Friday. Maybe he was busy with his spanish rosetta stone lessons.

Yes working with the Democrats is just code for caving in to everything they want. The Democrats don’t work with anyone. They scream and yell and accuse until the other side caves in.

Look for every bad thing you dreaded to happen in the next 12 months.

The best thing that could happen to this country is a total economic collapse. Bring it on and see who lives through it. I’m betting on conservatives.

I think they have dirt on him and own him. Always have. He has a ‘look’ about him that makes me speculate about what it might be.

"We don't need more "negotiations" that we always lose out on."

I agree. Every time we compromise with the Dems, we take it in the shorts, and compromise always ends up costing us more money. Boehner is a moron if he thinks that the election was a mandate to work with the Dems. Congressional Republicans are getting to be just like the Democrats: When something fails, keep doing it, over and over.

I called my Congressman's office yesterday. He's a Republican and just won reelection. I relayed all my concerns to the girl, and told her I was deadset against the House Republicans working with the Dems, and my reasons why. It won't make any difference in the end, but I felt better getting it off my chest.

Bill Cunningham....the same guy who was on Hannity’s radio show Tuesday afternoon, yodeling about the historic Republican turnout, guaranteeing Ohio, and ohhh, the Chick Fil-A voter is doing us proud. Then he went on Sean’s TV show Thursday night; not ONE WORD about how wrong he was.

I’m sick of all these people. Boehner is a craven invertebrate. He couldn’t wait to roll over and show his belly to the dictator, and even now, he hasn’t had his fill.

That's right. Also, Eric Bolling and Kimberly Guilfoyle, both conservative, agree that the Republicans need to dump the social issues for good.

To hell with all of them. If that's what it takes to win elections in the future, they can do it without my help.

You won the House handily, lost the senate by about 5 individuals. Lost the presidency by 300k total in the states that were even competitive; and those votes were either fraud or non contributors to society. You’ve got a virtual mandate by working Americans John. Don’t be a crybaby. Use the power and shove it up their collective assess.

Pandering and negotiations with our ideological enemies is what got the Republicans in this mess in the first place. If they don't work to support candidates who stand for conservative principles without apology... without excuses and can COMMUNICATE these principles effectively, they will always lose.

The moochers in this country will never vote for a republican, so forget about them. We want to energize folks that truly believe government is the problem, because it is. They need to quit using phrases like "working across the aisle" and they need to ignore the pundits. If they don't, they will never win another election again.

I was thinking along the same lines. In an interview he went weepy about giving the children of America a chance. A real man would tell Obama that what he is doing is going to strip America’s children of any chance of having rewarding futures. A real man would tell Obama that before he would sacrifice the future of America’s children, he would shut down EVERY STINKING federal agency first. But that’s what a real man would do. Boehner? Weepy and creepy. Not a real man.

Mark Levin nailed it.

MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.

We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans.


Real Americans aren't giving up, backing down, or going away. We're going to fight them and make them bleed for every inch.

My guess is that tons of Obama voters have no idea about what a debt ceiling is, what going over the cliff is, what a federal debt and deficit is, what the GNP is, etc. All they are concerned about is getting free EBT cards and the free Obamaphone, along with extended unemployment benefits with no work requirement. Rush is right- they voted for Santa Claus.

What percentage of votes have third party efforts EVER received? 5%? Maybe 10% when Perot tried it? That is not the smart move, Infiltrate the GOP. replace the rino's. The percentages favor a renewed Tea Party effort to change the complexion of the existing structure.
