As my colleague streiff wrote a while ago, (alleged) Republican Speaker of the House [mc_name name='Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)' chamber='house' mcid='B000589' ] just pushed through a "clean" bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security and funded Barack Obama's plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegals. Boehner has once again flipped the bird to the conservative base and shown his cowardice in the face of the Democrat meanies who threaten to throw a fit about a shutdown.
John Boehner must go. He must be replaced as House Speaker. He does not represent the interests of the majority of Americans who voted for a Republican House of Representatives and Senate and whose clear message was "oppose Barack Obama".
Boehner and his cowardly GOP compatriots (seen in non-italics here) must be booted from the House during the next election season. As far as I'm concerned, Boehner should be campaigned against in the next primary AND the next general election, should he survive the primary. In the interim, the 167-some GOP House members who do possess some semblance of courage should immediately begin the process of removing Bohener as speaker. It's time for the GOP representatives to shake the fear of retribution from Boehner and his co-conspirators and fight back. Committee assignments are not worth the damage that House and Senate leadership are doing to the Republican party and to the country by continuing to tolerate Barack Obama's patently unconstitutional behavior.
I encourage you to write or call your representatives and demand that they work to remove Boehner as Speaker. The cowardice of the GOP leadership must stop now.
Next up: [mc_name name='Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)' chamber='senate' mcid='M000355' ].
