John Boehner realized the damage he has done to America over his 25 year career in Congress. $19 trillion in growing national debt, encroachments on First and Second Amendment rights, out of control welfare entitlements, the exploding size, expense and power of the federal government, weakened defense, etc and much more during his watch as Speaker finally was more than his conscience could bear. So, in shame and a cascade of tears, he humbly resigned for the betterment of the country.
Nah, he knew he was going to be voted out as Speaker. So he quit.
In fact, the only way Boehner could survive as Speaker was with the help of the socialist Democrats in the House. Of course, there is no difference in Boehner and Nancy Pelosi so why would the Democrats care? But how would it look for a Republican Speaker to keep his gavel only because he’s as liberal as the socialist Democrats? Sounds like a certain Speaker in the Lone Star State named Joe Straus.
The conservative knives have been out for Boehner for a while. The problem has been the majority of lifelong Republican corruptocrats (do you hear me North Texas Congressmen?) who feed at the luxurious trough called Congress. By showing undying support for Boehner, they were able to get plum committee assignments where they could
steal direct more money for their personal interests.
You’ll hear more from these worthless Establishment pukes in the next several days as they line up to be the next Speaker. Hell, it’s already started. Here’s Brylcreem spokesman Paul Ryan on Boehner’s announcement:
“John Boehner has been a great leader of the Republican Party and the House of Representatives. This was an act of pure selflessness. John’s decades of service have helped move our country forward, and I deeply value his friendship. We will miss John, and I am confident our conference will elect leaders who are capable of meeting the challenges our nation faces. I wish John and his family well as he begins the next phase of his life.”
Worthless RINO Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania said:
there was “a lot of sadness in the room” when Mr. Boehner made his announcement to colleagues. He blamed the hard-right members, who he said were unwilling to govern. “It’s clear to me that the rejectionist members of our conference clearly had an influence on his decision,” Mr. Dent said. “That’s why I’m not happy about what happened today. We still have important issues to deal with, and this will not be easier for the next guy.”
“The fundamental dynamics don’t change,” Mr. Dent said. “The dynamics are this: There are anywhere from two to four dozen members who don’t have an affirmative sense of governance. They can’t get to yes. They just can’t get to yes, and so they undermine the ability of the speaker to lead. And not only do they undermine the ability of the speaker to lead, but they undermine the entire Republican conference and also help to weaken the institution of Congress itself. That’s the reality.
“Now, if we have a new speaker, is there going to be an epiphany? They won’t be happy if it’s Paul Ryan or Kevin McCarthy, who will have to make accommodations with a Democratic president and the Senate constituted the way it is.”
“Will have to make accommodations with a Democratic President.” What a tool! That’s the wussified spirit that gave us a rising $19 trillion national debt, ObamaCare, the non-Stimulus Bill, etc. Eat sh*t and die, Charlie Dent!
Appeasement. That’s the hallmark of the modern Republican Party. The interesting thing is that it took videos of Planned Parenthood murderers bragging about dismembering viable human babies to sell the parts off for their own profit to get the Republicans to act. If there has ever been a stronger argument for term limits, I don’t know what it is! And the Republican Establishment still wants to fund Planned Murderhood with taxpayer dollars!
Rumor has it Boehner will stay in Washington as a lobbyist for the alcohol and facial tissue industries since he has vast experience with both.
As for his replacement, look for the Republicans to select another from the Boehner ilk. It will not be a conservative. And the next Speaker will continue to bend over while sobbing into his tissue while the Democrats drive it on home. Same as it ever was.
Meet the new Boo Hoo, same as the old Boo Hoo. That’s the confidence AWD has in the Republican Party.
Either way, it’s a great way to start the weekend knowing that Boehner will soil no more Kleenex as Speaker of the House. And for that, AWD weeps tears of joy.
Now it’s time to go turtle hunting in the Senate next door.
