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!
