Skip to comments.Boehner Says He Supports Obama on Syria
Posted on 09/03/2013 8:43:07 AM PDT by jimbo123
President Barack Obama said Tuesday he was "confident" that Congress would authorize military force against Syria, and stressed that such action would be limited and meant to "degrade" the capabilities of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. "I'm going to support the president's call for action," House Speaker John Boehner said after meeting with Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and the heads of key congressional committees also attended the meeting.

I hate Boehner more than I do Obama.
Well, of course, Obama is the party leader and I expect all the sycophants to line up and support the president.
Oh, won’t this primary season be fun.
Oust the lot of them. The American people are not being represented in any way shape or form. Tar and Feathers time across the entire three branches of government.
Me too. He pulled Obama’s chestnuts out of the fire with Obamcare and is doing it again here.
So why the “debate” if Boehner has made up his mind. It really is time to DUMP the Republican Party...it’s just “Dem-Lite”.
Obama never had the guts to say , Attack ,so he’s suckering Congress to do it . Congress should tell Obama to get Stuffed
tough to do, but so do I
Boehner has jumped the shark!!! House critter Republicans...get rid of this traitor, Boehner and his weasel, accomplice, McConnell...they are naught but Obamabots & traitors. They should be calling for Obama’s impeachment!!! Weak sisters, both of them. Republican caucus: Vote “No” and deny Obama approval to attack Syria!!!
They have to fall in line. He’s got the goods on all of his opponents.
Shame on the GOP House for re-electing this defective “leader”. It is obvious that he is a captive of the Chicago thugs with his secrets on file. Remember Gen. Petraeus.
I agree with the poster who said they hate Boehner as much as they hate Obama. Sigh...
It’s time for the Libertarian and Constitution parties to merge into a super 3rd party. Both the GOP and Democrats are running us into the ground.
“Oh, wont this primary season be fun.”
Problem is, this pathetic drunk will easily retain his seat.
My Friend, while I agree with your sentiment, lets not pretend that enough of the electorate isn’t suckling at the government teat to support such an ousting.
We’re past the point that voting is going to solve this. The question now is will the 40-45% who want freedom will stand up and rebel/separate, or whether we will just continue the slow decline into socialism.
Must have been damn crowded under Obama’s desk this morning.
Speaker of the House Boehner announced that from how on he wants to be called...
(And, he happily reports that the hormone therapy was not even needed.)
live boy or dead girl in the FBI files for the old tearjerker.
Communists have complete control over our government...however as yet they do not have complete control over “We The People”...YET!
2014 will tell the tale, if we lose then, it’s over, 2016 will be a cake walk for the communists. IMO
Someone please tell me I’m wrong, and tell me why, I desperately want to be wrong.
He is a bought and paid stooge just like McCain.
F him and the party he rode in on.
Boner must be primaried in 2014 - he must.
Of course he will! There is no opposition party. This guy is just the worst and he always gets worse with the potential of getting worse!
Constitution, yes. Libertine.......errr, Libertarian, not so much.
....Or the planting of the seeds for a future revolt down the road.
“Hes got the goods on all of his opponents.”
That has to be the only answer.
It was over in Nov 2012. A nation of IDIOTS who are bussed to the polling places by the RAT party and do not have to have an IF in the year 2013 when you cannot purchase a pack of cigs or get on an airplane without a picture ID.
Hes got the goods on all of his opponents.
What do you think the IRS and NSA scandals are about?
Dem-Repub, same Bitcoin, different sides.
Could Beohner be blackmailed? One look at the weird guy his daughter married - a wedding Boehner proudly attended - might raise some red flags.
But then Christie might get jealous.
“live boy or dead girl in the FBI files for the old tearjerker.”
My guess is an alcohol related vehicular incident involving victims.
to strike Syria as planned, will destabilize Syria, cause it to fall and guarantee a radical Islamic takeover. Which is worse? The United States is the loser in either case. Stay out.
And people wonder why I am no longer a Republican. This makes me want to puke. These “representatives” truly disgust me.
This is as much our fault as his. We as a party have to realize that we are not going to have pearly snow driven white vestal virgin candidates. Most everyone has a skeleton or two in their closet.
This is not a joking matter, this is serious stuff. We are reaching the point, if not already surpassed it, where the population needs to visit the center of madness here with pitchforks in hand. They all have to go, between the double dealing crooks and the sycophants hanging on for a retirement check, we are rudderless in the face of an international storm and a domestic collapse. The Barbarians have over run the gates, there is no rational reasoning and very little constitutional government. Yeah, we have the buildings and the title Republic but it is more like an asylum and the nuts are in charge.
I can’t stand it.
What are we NOT hearing about all of this??
HOW WILL THE RUSSIANS REACT, after already telling their warships to prepare for a “Severe Confrontation”?
So....a shot across the bow? When the WWIII dust settles, who gets the blame? The GOP!
It’s been on FNC this morning.
He sounded drunk. He always sounds drunk.
We are surrounded by traitors. It’s that simple.
Boner is not even pretending any more. McCain should be wearing a “FU America” tee shirt.
Think it’s bad now? See what happens if they are permitted to get the guns. And make no mistake, if allowed, Boner & GOPe will sell us out on 2A.
>> to strike Syria as planned, will destabilize Syria, cause it to fall and guarantee a radical Islamic takeover.
Henceforth, the blood of every Christian murdered by the Muslim brotherhood is on the hands of John Boehner, the Republican Party, and the US of A.
May God have mercy on us.
