Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member John Boehner (R-INO OH) has had a very busy job since the election. So far, he conspired with Obama to fund Barry’s executive amnesty, lied about defunding Obamacare, and led the charge in passing a bill granting the NSA unlimited authority to spy on Americans without a warrant. As we look at his job “performance” since November, Conservatives are rightly asking the question: where do we go from here?
One great place to start would be to do all we can to make sure he isn’t the Speaker of the House for the next two years. Although the media and their inside-the-beltway buddies want you to think he has already been elected Speaker for the 114th Congress, that is simply not true. So far, he has only been nominated for the job. The actual vote doesn’t take place until January.
So, is it possible to kick his sorry butt to the “former-speaker” curb along with Nancy Pelosi? Absolutely! All we need to keep Boehner from re-election is 30 Conservatives to vote NO! Can it make a difference? Is it possible to do?
According to an article by Erick Erickson on RedState.com, it’s not only possible, it’s a moral imperative that Conservatives summon the courage to oppose Boehner on the House floor. Conservatives can’t keep complaining about his leadership failures while voting for him to keep his job. It’s hard, but not impossible. From Erick’s article:
One of the main obstacles to unseating Boehner is that House conservatives sort of like him. You hear them say, “He really is a good guy. He just has the worst job in the world.” What they do not realize is that at all times, Boehner and the entire Republican Leadership team are looking to screw and distract conservatives. Leadership has a phrase for this—it’s called “membership management.” It is code to themselves for outright deception towards those they lead. Most of the time they don’t get caught, but occasionally the corruptions is exposed. Boehner’s team lied to Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) to get his vote on the all-important procedural “rule” setting up the debate on the cromnibus. He promised to pull the cromnibus if Stutzman voted for the rule. Stutzman gave his vote, and Boehner went back on his word.
And let’s not forget that during the primaries, Boehner joined hands with fellow Gutless On Principles (GOP) Hall of Shame member Mitch McConnell (R-INO KY) in a declaration of war against conservative and T.E.A. Party groups, promising our destruction.
Albert Einstein once defined insanity like this: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Sounds like the perfect description of any Conservative who votes to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker.
