Skip to comments.Boehner: Obama’s Goal Is To 'Annihilate' The Republican Party (reaction to inaugural address)
Posted on 01/23/2013 3:53:04 PM PST by drewh
Speaker John Boehner said he believes the primary goal of President Obamas second term is to annihilate the Republican Party.
Given what we heard yesterday about the presidents vision for his second term, its pretty clear to me that he knows he cant do any of that as long as the House is controlled by Republicans, Boehner said in a speech Tuesday to The Ripon Society. So were expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the Republican Party.
And let me just tell you, I do believe that is their goal to just shove us into the dustbin of history.
Boehners remarks referred to Obamas inaugural address. Republicans were hopeful the president would use that speech to lay the groundwork for a partnership over the next four years, but he instead made it a rallying cry for an active federal government.
The Republican leader ripped the president for not taking the countrys deficits seriously, and said the failure of the "fiscal cliff" talks last year reflected the president's refusal to face facts on the budget.
In our meetings before Christmas, the president was so tired of me talking about when we were going to deal with an entitlement crisis that he looked at me and said: Boehner, we dont have a spending problem. We have a healthcare problem. It gives you some idea of the challenge that were facing, Boehner said.
For a guy whos run up the deficit 60 percent 60 percent of the deficit has occurred under his watch when you see this, and then you hear him say: I am not going to negotiate on the debt limit. I am not going to deal with the debt limit. Thats Congresss problem!

Oh. Is that why you were yucking it up with Dear Leader on Monday?
Boener doesn’t need all that much help.
I thought that was Boehner’s goal? He and his boss have so much in common.
After talking tough, Boehner then promptly dropped his pants and bent over. What a wuss.
I think there is bipartisan agreement to do just that.
There is nothing the ‘Rats would like better than to have America under the heel of one party rule.
They really do admire Red China.
Imagine if Churchill had simply stated/shared Hitler’s aims and goals with the country, essentially repeating Hitler’s own threats, instead of cheering on the fight against Hitler....
Boehner knows he’s lost the House in 2014 and he’s trying to blame someone else.
John, you’re doing a good job of it, all on your own.
Boehner has done his best to kill the GOP but neither he nor his golf buddy, the Dear Leader, can kill conservatism.
There are a lot of socially conservative Libertarians who are left stranded by the Republican party.
John Boehner continued: “...and well, you know, we're just fine with that."
I thought that was Boehner’s goal.
That’s about it.
Republicans had a plan of denying theOne a second term. But they never went on attack. Pelosi never let up on republicans when she ran the House. I don’t expect the Kenyan to be gentle either.
Apparently , John, yours is too, punk.
Newsflash for Boner....its not just Obama trying to annhilate the Republican Party. The MSM has the Party in its sights too.
Calling Captain Obvious.
To be fair, it is much harder to “go on the attack” when you have so very little to attack with.
Obama has all of the major media, the MSM.
The Republicans have some talk radio, half of Fox, and a decent presence on the Internet.
I give the Democrat to Republican advantage in the media at about 10 to 1.
If the Republicans are too effective, the MSM simply refuses to give them air time. Consider the debates. Completely set up in favor of the Democrats.
I don’t think the idiots that run the GOP need any help doing that.
The republican party is so past tense.
Republican party is doing a good enough job all by itself.
Well we’ll see how concerned about it, when we see if Boehner actually fights AGAINST Obama.
Dear Mr. Boehner,
It is YOUR actions, dare I say INACTION and INABILITY to stop Obama from destroying the economy and our freedoms that has put the Republican Party in the dustbin of history. All Obama has to do is simply put the lid on it.
A TEA PARTY Member
After which, Ms. Boehner sat down to have a good cry.
As opposed to the GOP grandees who want to help implement the DNC agenda, but at a discount.
“Cry me a river”?
Your party won’t be all that hard to destroy, boner, since you and your band of nutless eunuchs stand for NOTHING AT ALL except feathering your own nest.
annihilate the Republican Party.
Beat him to the punch (pun intended) you stupid spineless collaborating lush.
RINOs like Boehner are pretty freakin' naive!
All you seem capable of doing is purging your own from power.
And so, Speaker Boehner, exactly what the hell do you propose to do about it?
Fight back? Have a good cry? What?
You do realize, of course, that when the President speaks of "annihilating the Republican Party" he is referring to the people who voted for you as well as the party's leadership? Or do you?
You might be prepared to go quietly. We are not.
Boner’s so pussy-whipped he can’t stand up.
Unless you step down, Boner, and let someone with courage and character lead, Obama most likely will annhilate the Republican party.
Leftists play for keeps.
Ah, so don't help him. Boehner hasn't acted on his stated beliefs for 2 years. I'll believe him, when he acts like he believes himself.
This headline prompted three immediate thoughts .....
First, I am glad to hear that the Speaker finally understands 0bama's goal.
Second .... 'What in the hell took you so damn long to realize this'?!
Third .... Would you please starting acting like you want to resist the annihilation!!!
Would you please starting acting like you want to resist the annihilation!!!
