John - you posted a summary of the budget on the House web site. We’ll take you at your word this highlights the provisions of the bill and we’ll call it what it is - a dog turd. And you don’t need to eat a whole dog turd to know it tastes like crap.

I think they're pushing our members in places where they don't want to be.

Sometimes the cat needs to be shoved into the carrier for a trip to the vet. That's pushing him into a place where he doesn't want to be also. If a Congressman doesn't want to do something difficult, then that's all the more reason to beat him into doing it.

And Boehner can’t get that worked up about standing up for something or speaking out about democrats. How about taking some of that fire and talking this harsh about where the democrats are “pushing us”?

John, YOU SUCK!

Cry me a river, John.

Support Eric Gurr to oust John Boehner in OH-8

Also, press your Representative to NOT support Boehner or Ryan for Speaker.

I guess sometime it easier to attack constitutionalists than the real opposition. What a nancy boy. And this whiner is behind joe biteme in the line of succession? That’s just great. He can’t do his current job. Of course neither can plugs or the “lyin’ king”. We are being governed by incompetents. Nothing new there I guess. If only I had the money...............

Does this man have any idea what he is supposed to stand for?

He swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. That’s probably the first and foremost demand of Tea Party members.

He is supposed to stand for smaller government, less taxation, and programs that make our nation stronger, not weaker. Tell me where the Tea Party members are going wrong, to demand this from him.

He is supposed to be the champion of our Founder’s principles. Is that too much to ask by the Tea Party members/Conservatives?

By Boehner’s own statements, you can tell he does not believe in any of the above. As such he should stand down as Speaker, and resign from Congress.

He is breaking his oath of office. End of story.

I really wish Boehner would be defeated in a primary or at the very least, removed from the Speakership.

I think part of the problem here was the success the Rats and their stool pigeons in the Mainstream Media had in blaming the Republicans for the government shutdown and the negative effect this had on public opinion. They may feel that anything they do to detract attention from the collossal catastrophe Obamacare has become will be of benefit to the bastard in the Oval Office and making too much of an issue of the budget would do just that.

We are in a massive, deadly chess game with a master of deceit.

But, having said that, I still think Boehner and the GOP leadership have acted ineffectively in dealinig with this issue and we need more dedicated conservatives at the helm of the party.

AGAIN, its CRITICAL we take over County Committee and State Republican Committee seats and local offices and work up from there.

That's what gets me. Here's a guy who is clearly a soft-touch, someone who tears up quite a bit (nothing wrong with that if he's otherwise a hardass, but he isn't), etc. - basically, Mr. Rodgers with a title and some power.

Yet I've NEVER seen or heard him taking off on ANY Dems like this. All of his passion and anger are applied to fellow Republicans (many of whom voted for him to be in office, and to be Speaker). Which raises the very obvious question of, "Why is that, John?"

Boehner must not be the Speaker again. The best way for that to happen is for him to be primaried...but I don't hold out much hope for that. The 2nd best way is for a bunch of ACTUAL Conservatives to threaten to vote for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker if they don't have a better choice for Speaker. At least with Pelosi you know with whom (or, more accurately, with WHAT) you are dealing.

Adios, John, you've had your day in the sun - time to move on.

A threat like that is only credible if you are willing to follow through.

You posit this solution to getting rid of Boenher as Speaker. Are you, or any body else, ready to do that with a simple Congressional seat, in order to get rid of the GOP-e influence in Congress?

Budget deal in a nutshell in easy to understand numbers.

$30,000 income per year
$37,500 spending each year
$145,000 total Debt

You tell your bank you’ve come up with a budget. You promise to cut 200.00 in spending over 10 years to reduce your debt. 20 dollars per year. $1.66 per month.

You can’t fix stupid, but you can vote them out of office.

NO ...

What we need is one House GOP member who really disagrees with Bohner (as opposed to acting like they do to get praise) to step up to the plate and run against Bohner for the Speaker job making his case why he would be better.

None of those mice were willing to step in early January to make a case for them as Speaker.

A few like Lou Gomert TX cast meaningless votes for those not running instead, but Lou sure doesnt want that job..

They got too good a jobs now as a house members in a red districts :just vote 'no 'as their district voters want and then get praised by talk radio hosts, called ‘constitutional heroes’.

If they were Speaker the party would be over. that would be no fun

And notice you never heard Rush or Levin put any of them on the spot to run.

Bohner has security, he is The Goat.

If Pelosi could be put in for about a half day, then hold a new vote for Speaker among republicans, THEN maybe that is a workable idea.

But would Pelosi be able to block any votes that came to the floor to replace her as Speaker? If that is the case, then the idea stinks.

Better to get Boehner drunk and on tape about who paid him off, who he sold out to, how severely he is compromised, and then go after him with the grassroots demanding his resignation.

Problem is that the “Tea Party” mostly consists of 55 and up demographics.

These are the people who are still alive who STILL REMEMBER when we had a free society where individual rights still existed, not collective rights.

The bland minds of the people younger than the 50’s have been brainwashed via media and the public school system.

It will take years for them to realize that Obamacrats have impoverished their generation.

Forgot to mention: The Over-55 group are not as ABLE to be militant and march on Wash D.C. as young people are.

So I now realize the ONLY WAY for the Tea Party to accomplish anything in this world is to recruit YOUTH who understand freedom. Think about it... That’s the only way.

The energy of youth is always been what has transformed societies, not aging baby boomers and geriatric GI generation people.

So between McConnell saying he wants to punch Tea Partiers in the mouth, and John (Boo-Hoo) Boehner saying we have lost all credibility, what to do? Maybe we need new men at the helm. These two appear out of step with those who like a two party system. Absolute compliance and submission to the leftist Ground Hogs is not a wise or winning formula. Yes, Mr. Boehner, unlike many in your closed circle, we do expect to win eventually. We are not afraid of being ‘called names’ by the New York Times. That’s what they do, what they will always do, no matter which rights we give up, it will never be enough. The Tea Party does not need to have the New York Times or Politico pat it gently on the head.

In order to take advantage of Obama's declining numbers with America's youth, Republicans need to get the dour and inarticulate Boehner and McConnell out of leadership positions!!

Who listens to them?? In their own way, they are as inarticulate as Pelosi and Reid! And, that's saying something!!

As long as Boehner and McConnell are allowed to be the "voices" of Republican leadership in the Congress and Senate, youth will not be inspired, and this potentially history-changing moment will pass without the excitement and celebration it deserves in the history books.

Neither will they be exposed to articulate explanations of why the ideas and principles of America's Declaration of Independence and Constitution are the only ideas and principles which can rescue American citizens from certain further loss of freedom!
