Right.

House Speaker John Boehner told Republicans in a closed-door meeting Tuesday that the House doesn’t need to pass a third sequester replacement bill before the “Senate gets off their ass and passes it once.”

In other words, Boner-Boehner is just about ready to cave in and abdicate the House's role in setting spending priorities. Instead the cry baby will capitulate and quickly pass anything that Reid & the House demoRATs throw at him. What a f__kin asshole Boner/Boehner is!

Okay, this is encouraging, but Boehner should have had this attitude after the House passed legislation the FIRST time. All he has to say - - a thousand times, if necessary - - to answer the same stupid question posed by some Democrat "mainstream" newsroom reporter is, "The House has acted. Now we will be interested to see the Senate's plan and we will be interested to see the President's plan."

Period.

At least Boehner is (apparently) on the right track now. The House has acted. When the sequestration cuts (hopefully) kick in, Boehner needs to have the backbone to stand firm and repeat - - a thousand times, if necessary - - "The House has acted. We are disappointed that Senate majority leader Harry Reid and the President STILL have not come up with their plans, and have instead allowed the Obama sequestration cuts to take effect."

Period.

Why don't we wait and see, first? Boehner has masterfully outmanuevered Ubama and the rats up to this point, so maybe he has a plan. Plus, McConnell and Boehner both seem to be on the same page re: "tax hikes" ie., "The tax issue is behind us now."

As long as they stick to that, the GOP wins.

“Why don’t we wait and see, first?”

So please be specific in your answer. How mmany times do we have to sit through the exact same scenario before people decide that perhaps Bhoner is totally full of crap and caves like clockwork?

Most people learn after the first few times Luky pulls the football and their tongue sticks to the frozen light pole.

Over 10 years ago, the congress of that time passed the terrific Bush tax cuts, and they were for everybody. Deservedly, for everybody. Congress's stupidity was in accepting the "sunset" provision - - but what the heck, they weren't worried about ten years down the road. Well, that chicken came home to roost and the Bush tax cuts finally DID expire on January 1, 2013. Taxes went UP for everybody.

A day or two later congress passed the same Bush tax cuts for 98% of taxpayers (everybody up to an income of $400,000) and this time they were made permanent (ie., no "sunset" provision). In other words, congress raised taxes on nobody.

Boehner stumbled along (or did he?) playing footsie with the African communist scumbag Ubama for a month during the so-called "fiscal cliff" negotiations, and appeared to nearly blow it twice, first by proposing "eliminating deductions and closing loopholes" - - as if that's not a massive tax hike - - and second by proposing something called "Plan B".

"Plan B" would have had the GOP House voting to raise taxes on upper income taxpayers since the vote would have occurred prior to the automatic "tax hikes" which took effect when the Bush cuts expired. Had "Plan B" been passed, the Democrats could have legitimately crowed forever about how the Republicans agreed with Democrats that taxes had to be raised. Republicans would never have heard the end of it, and it may have killed the party.

Somehow, Ubama talked himself out of going along with the first proposal, and the House conservatives killed "Plan B".

Astonishingly, the Republicans are now in a position where they have not only made the Bush tax cuts permanent for nearly everybody, but they can make the solid case, as Mitch McConnell already did, that the "debate over taxes is behind us now". After over a month of the issue dominating their television sets, no way do Americans want to hear about the Democrats coming back yet again to demand more taxes - - and even threatening a "sequestration cuts / end of the world" scenario over the issue.

The Republicans are sitting in the catbird's seat, no doubt about it. "The tax issue is behind us." Whether Boehner finessed his way there, or stumbled into it doesn't matter now - - the ball is most definitely in the Democrats' court, and everybody knows it. As long as Boehner sticks with that mantra, the ignorant chattering class will eventually notice that the rats have done nothing.

Is that specific enough for you? So yeah - - why don't you see what happens before you start wringing your hands and cursing Boehner again?

Your question was:

How mmany times do we have to sit through the exact same scenario before people decide that perhaps Bhoner is totally full of crap and caves like clockwork?

My answer was, essentially, that your question was the kind posed by a scumbag liberal newsroom mouse. Like David Gregory, for example. "When are you going to apologize for..(whatever)?"

In other words, your question is based on the premise that Boehner routinely caves. I believe that premise is incorrect. Maybe you could offer some context? Please cite a couple of instances where Boehner caved and it resulted in the rats getting what they want. Thanks.

Obama’s current fear is that sequestration kicks in on March 1 and life goes on as we all know it. No delays at the airports, no terrorist attacks, no big dive in the markets, no kids starving, no old people not getting health care.

There’s only so many times Obama can cry wolf before people just start to ignore his whining. Most already do.

Correct. Boehner's words are finally resonating because Obama's harping on tax hikes doesn't carry the heft it once did.

They didn't keep the Dems from doing anything.

The Dems would have sat on their hands regardless because they knew the media would blame the House whatever the scenario was.

I would once again direct people to read your post history to see for themselves the extremes of denial you regularly go to in defense of Bhoner and the GOP. Debating you is no different than debating any other DU type.

So I’ll let your past posts and our past go-rounds speak for themselves.

The only thing I've seen from the House is the Bush tax cuts made permanent for nearly everybody. Considering the rats hold the White House and the Senate, I'll take it. But you can continue to wring your hands and whine, "Boehner sucks, woe is me", if that makes you happy. As for me, I'll wait until the rats actually win something significant before I break out the tar and feathers.

FRegards,
LH

Still not addressing any of the issues but thanks for bringing another up.

The position was NO increase/reversion. But they caved and gave up the evil rich to the dems.

Fail on your part Lance. And theirs. Or were you sick all those days weeks and months that FR was screaming to the heavens about each and every one of these and other issues they caved on? First warning them NOT to cave, then Bitching each and every time they did???

Musta been a hell of a cold you had all those times...

You came up with routine "continuing resolutions" and the lying "gave up the evil rich" examples... Do you have anything solid, or real, that the House Republicans have caved on in the face of a rat White House, AND a rat Senate, AND a rat "mainstream" news media? Anything?

The only reason he wants them to get off their collective asses is so that it becomes easier for him to show his master, the POS in the WH, which ass he is kissing. Does he he think the would be boy king will get jealous and want his ass kissed as good as it was during the first debt ceiling debacle or during the fiscal cliff fiasco? Seems like the only thing left for Bonehead to do is the sequester suck. And my money is on the Spelunker of the House being more than willing to accommodate.

And “I” am embarrassing myself? I can’t wait to bring this thread up every time you pop up apologizing for the GOP.

If you are saying the GOP increased taxes on the rich, or on anybody, then you are a brazen liar. I see you STILL haven’t bothered to read post #16 because if you did, you would reply that you weren’t lying, you were just ignorant. So either read it and I’ll accept your apology, or take a hike. But please don’t post to me again until you do at least a couple minutes of homework. If indeed your problem is a reading comprehension issue, I can’t help you with that.

This is fantastic. In one thread I have the perfect example of GOP denial to point to in the future.

Refuses to answer questions
Denies premise
Claims of lying
“Turd party” comment when people won’t accept cave ins as acceptable.

PERFECT. You have my eternal gratitude. And as another poster on this thread will tell you, I always make good use of these examples.

Meanwhile, just like him/her/it, you whine and moan and cry but NEVER answer a direct question with a direct answer, NEVER say what your plan of action would be, and NEVER have anything positive to say. I am calling you out as a troll. You will receive no more replies from me.

Have a nice life, Bunky.
