The more he whines, the less respect I have.
From The Hill.
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is blaming conservative groups in Washington for turning him into a human pinata to raise money.
In an interview to air on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, Boehner said he doesn’t disagree that much with conservatives on policy, but that the groups beat “the dickens out of me” in order to line their own pockets.
“The issue with the Tea Party isn’t one of strategy. It’s not one of different vision,” Boehner said, according to excerpts released by CBS.
That ‘different vision’; we expect our representatives to do what they were elected to do and actually follow the precepts outlined in the Constitution.
“It’s a disagreement over tactics, from time to time. Frankly, a lot is being driven by national groups here in Washington who have raised money and just beating the dickens out of me,” Boehner said in the joint interview with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
“It works. They raise money, put it in their pocket, and pay themselves big salaries,” Boehner added.
WAAAAAAAAAH! We beat him up and took his lunch money. Some advice: stop whining and think about why your colleagues and constituents are so angry.
Boehner has a considerable history of being a total wuss when it comes to confronting the Dems and their corruption. Being called spineless pains him terribly.
Boehner surrenders so much, he should have a white flag tattooed on his ass. He refuses to advocate impeachment for Obama. He capitulated twice to Obama over the debt ceiling with no strings attached, and the pompous ass had the gall to dismiss concerns over his feckless behavior with a sarcastic rendition of Zip a Dee Doo Dah as he exited a press conference. His collusion with Dems has helped increase the debt by $3,8 trillion in 3 years.
He also disrespected fellow Republicans who take issue with his chickenshit approach to ‘immigration reform’. And he’s refused to have Lois Lerner arrested for her unlawful, unconstitutional targeting of conservative groups.
In the biggest mutiny against an incumbent speaker in at least a century, 25 House Republicans voted to oust Boehner from the Speaker podium. Unfortunately, they did not succeed. He was challenged by Rep Louis Gohmert (R-TX) for the Speaker’s job, and in spite of his statements to the contrary, retaliated against the Republicans who voted to oust him.
He should not representing the GOP as Speaker of the House.
