Reid: House ‘Being Operated With A Dictatorship Of The Speaker’
AP via C "BS" ^ | December 27, 2012

Posted on 12/27/2012 10:16:24 AM PST by US Navy Vet

WASHINGTON (AP) – A last-gasp effort Thursday to avoid automatic tax increases and spending cuts got off on the same convulsive, partisan tone that marked congressional attempts to resolve the impasse before lawmakers left Washington to go home for Christmas.

With a Dec. 31 deadline for an agreement to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff” rapidly approaching, leaders in each party demanded the other side take the initiative. The new flare-up happened despite a round of calls that President Barack Obama made to congressional leaders by phone Wednesday night from Hawaii before he boarded Air Force One to head home from vacation.

The lying Mormon devil has no room to accuse anyone of such bonerism (Boehnerism).

He must be under the impression that Pelosi is the Speaker.

Either that, or Boehner is showing some backbone to BHO.

Seems to me that Boehner has bent over backwards to try to accomodate the ‘Progressives’. And what credit does he get? Nothing but a slap in the face for his betrayal of conservatism.

Let’s remember Nancy’s words from 2006:

“With integrity, civility, and fiscal responsibility as our guide, Democrats intend to move forward with the agenda for change on which we were elected. We will:

•Make America safer by implementing the recommendations of the 9/11 commission.

•Make our economy fairer by raising the minimum wage and ending taxpayer subsidies for sending jobs overseas.

•Make college more affordable by cutting the interest rates on student loans.

•Improve healthcare by allowing Medicare to negotiate for lower prescription drug prices and promoting stem-cell research.

•Achieve energy independence within 10 years by investing America’s energy dollars in the Midwest instead of the Middle East.

•Guarantee a dignified retirement by improving Medicare, protecting Social Security, and making it easier to save for retirement.

These items are not just the Democratic agenda; all of them enjoy broad bipartisan support. Democrats will work with members of both parties to secure their passage, because progress will not be victory for any one party, but for all of the American people.

Democrats do not see our congressional majorities as the end point in a long and hard-fought campaign, but rather the starting point – an opportunity to work on behalf of all Americans.

The American people – many Republican and independent voters among them – entrusted Democrats with their hopes and aspirations for themselves, their families, and their future. We are prepared to lead and ready to govern. We will honor that trust, and we will not disappoint.”

talk about the pot calling the kettle black!!!!

while Bohner admits HE does not command a majority to give Obama what Obama demands

Reid attempts to please and kow tow to his commander’s demands, offering tax-issue pablum to the populace, via the complicit media, while trying to keeping Obama’s pledge to keep spending as he wishes.

“The lying Mormon devil has no room to accuse anyone of such bonerism (Boehnerism).”

Mormons believe that the absolute worst few in the world are called The Son’s of Perdition. I never knew one existed today until I saw Harry Reid in action. Now at least I know one Son of Perdition!

I’m disappointed the word “dictator” didn’t catch in his mormon godling throat and strangle him to death.

“....A Dictatorship of the Speaker”

If so, one of the oddest dictatorships the world has ever known.

NO executions, NO concentration camps, NO confiscatory policies, NO suppression of dissent. Clearly, not at all like Oliver Cromwell or Maximilien Robespierre.

Yet, I could see Dingy Harry being just such an individual who would overreach authority and strain cordiality to its very limits and beyond.

What the heck, Harry has ALREADY exceeded good taste and rationality.

If only Nancy Pelosi was dictator...er...Speaker it would be different.

And it’s a good thing Harry doesn’t pull that dictator crap in the Senate.

Hey dingy hairy, the House is coming back to vote on the budget YOUR Senate passed for the next year - oh wait. Never mind. You haven’t had one in the last four years.

Harry ‘the undertaker’ is indeed an evil man. He is the epidome of the sneaky, sleazy, “you’d never guess whom he serves” style devil in flesh. I cannot even bring myself to ask “may God have mercy on his soul” because I believe him to be so thoroughly evil to his rotten, duplicitous, lying, arrogant core that God has already given him up.
