Is Boehner Helping Obama’s Second Coming?
This is an interesting column by Jed Babbin. House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) popped a surprise on the Republican Conference in their January 20 meeting. President Obama had accepted his invitation to appear at their Baltimore retreat scheduled for January 29, two days after the State of the Union speech. According to several dismayed conservative members that attended the meeting and sought me out | Read More »
Ohio – Obama Preaches To The Wrong Crowd.
I can’t get no satisfaction could well be President Obama’s mantra these days. Picked audiences or not it just keeps getting worse for the embattled Barack Obama, while telling us about the ‘green jobs’ that may or may not be created by research into solar power and wind generation, which most experts agree will never amount to more than 20 per cent of the power | Read More »
Demarxists Fear For Obamacare? Opposition Grows.
As if in sync with the cautionary statements coming from various quarters of the leftists’ Clown College, His Anointedness, Madame Pelosi and Dingy Harry emerged from another secretive closeted meeting at the once White House, to proclaim ’significant’ progress towards melding the House and Senate versions of the bill. This three pony carnival doesn’t ring true with what we’re hearing and the herrings being trailed | Read More »
The Republican Plan that wasn’t
It’s time again to turn my sights on the Republican party. Today I received a beg letter in the mail from Republican House Leader John Boehner. On the front of the envelope it read “I have important news about the beginning of the end of Nancy Pelosi’s reign as speaker.” Having just published the post Where the Hell are the Republicans?, I thought to myself, | Read More »
Leader Boehner Should Have Led
These guys keep shooting themselves in the foot. “This lady clearly has as agenda that’s different than most Republicans, she was out there promoting herself,” Boehner said, noting that he has encouraged all members of the GOP conference to support Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. Mr. Boehner, with respect, this was blindly obvious to all of us outside the Beltway. You guys have spent $900,000.00 | Read More »
Palin boosts Boehner’s health care address.
Via her Facebook account, of course: Mark my words – tomorrow is the game changer! Tune in to hear common sense solutions that bury the false accusations that conscientious members of Congress have no solutions to meet America’s health care challenges. If you’re like me, shaking your head wondering why all the miscommunication between Washington and the American people who have been saying, “Please hear | Read More »
Boehner to White House: You’ve been dodging our calls since April.
I’m translating this into English, of course – but not too much; Boehner made it clear Monday that the White House was disinterested in getting anything except a rubber-stamp on health care. Earlier this year, GOP leaders sent a letter to the president in May stating that they would like to work with the administration to find “common ground” on healthcare reform. But the administration | Read More »

Republicans Start Attacking Democrats’ “Dying With Dignity” Message
The Republicans are engaging on this front. Good for them.Congressmen Boehner and McCotter released the following statement: Section 1233 of the House-drafted legislation encourages health care providers to provide their Medicare patients with counseling on ‘the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration’ and other end of life treatments, and may place seniors in situations where they feel pressured to sign end of life directives | Read More »
Where are the jobs?
That’s House Minority Leader John Boehner’s response to CoS Rahm Emanuel’s rather… well, sad… statement that the White House has turned the economy around:
USPS at risk at not making payroll?
Back last month, House Minority Leader John Boehner made the following comment about government-run health care options: “Listen, if you like going to the DMV and you think they do a great job, or you like going to the post office and think it’s the most efficient thing you’ve run into, then you’ll love the government-run health care system that they’re proposing because that’s basically | Read More »
A Tale of Two Leaders: Boehner v. McConnell
There are some calls out there right now to boycott the NRCC over the 8 cap-and-trade votes cast by the GOP. Are we going to seriously punish Dave Reichert for voting for cap-and-trade when he barely won his district in 2008 and something like 70% of his district both supports cap-and-trade and thinks environmental issues are the most important issues in Congress? If so, don’t | Read More »
Boehner: ‘where are the jobs?’
In today’s “Weekly Republican Address,” House Republican Leader John Boehner asks, “Where are the jobs?” It’s a good question. After all, to justify spending trillions of borrowed money on President Obama’s so-called stimulus, energy and health care bills, Obama and the Democrats promised the unprecedented spending would create jobs: The president and Democrats in Congress claim this spending binge is necessary to put Americans back | Read More »
