Wimpy RINO Boehner To Obama: ‘We Want You To Succeed, We’re Ready To Be Led’

Speaker of the House (and sneaky helpful cheater this year at the RNC, helping them bypass the will of the delegates) John Boehner once again demonstrates that he does not have neither the intestinal fortitude nor the moral authority to be the majority leader in the House of Representatives. On the heels of Barack Obama's re-election, Boehner said, “This is your moment” and “we want you to succeed.”

Boehner said on Wednesday, “If there’s a mandate in yesterday’s [election] results it’s a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges that we all face as a nation."

The challenges Boehner is referring to are numerous, including the automatic defense cut spending, the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, a debt limit increase and the expiration of the continuing resolution to keep funding the government without a formal budget.

He claims that Republicans are willing to work with Obama to avoid the "fiscal cliff."

“Mr. President, this is your moment,” Boehner said. “We’re ready to be led not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans. We want you to lead not as a liberal or a conservative, but as the president of the United States of America. We want you to succeed. Let’s challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us.”

My friends, this is exactly why we are in the mess we are in. Republicans have offered us RINOs (Republicans in name only). Boehner is merely one in a long line of them. The latest being Mitt Romney and before him John McCain and before him George W. Bush and before him Bob Dole. Anyone else seeing a pattern here?

There was no mandate at all on either side from the American people. Instead there was merely division. Frankly the working class and those that actually are paying attention, would just as soon the Republicans stop the continuing resolutions and force the Democrats to balance the budget, not raise the debt ceiling and do what they were put in office by their constituents to do.

Interestingly enough, Congressmen were not put in office by America. They were put in office by their constituents. They represent them. Guys like Boehner are supposed to be, if nothing else, fiscally responsible, but instead of manning up and dealing with the issues head on, they have chosen the path of least resistance for political expediency and wish to not appear as the bad men and have allowed trillions of dollars to be added to our national debt because they would not stand on principle, but rather continued to compromise.

Honestly, not only does the GOP need to get rid of people like Reince Priebus as chairman, but the new Congress coming in needs to remove the current Speaker of the House and put someone in there who has some real leadership abilities.

Here's Boehner's worthless comments:

    You have a House Rep - contact them and have them rid the House of this Speaker who is afraid to face the truth. We will pay now or later - I don't want my children to have to attempt to pay an insurmountable budget deficit. Lets tackle it now - cut obamacare, and any other idiotic program out there - ie paying Palastinians (for what?), paying Egypt (for what?), paying south america to explore oil!!!! - come on people ----- and why are we paying non-citizens (medicaire, medicaid, social security)!!!!!! Stop the spending then lets talk about the rest.

    With Boehner acting and talking that way, he must really be a Democrat. Democrats already control the Presidency, and the Senate. Now Boehner wants to just give them the House, too. Well, I hope that he gets thrown out, too. We have too many RINO's in the ranks!

    I almost threw up when I saw Boehner do this yesterday...what a wimp he surely is.....

  • R.Young

    Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of thheir country, meaning of course all Republicans in congress should just roll over and play dead.

      I don't think Boehner's words or attitude is one of 'rolling-over, and playing dead'? I think he's just humbly acknowledging the blindingly obvious truth,.. that the Republican ideas of individual responsibility and limited government, have lost 'this round' of an eternal struggle for freedom. Since it's a battle which must ultimately be waged on the basis of the moral truth, it can't necessarily be won through contentious words and attitude, but by the evident 'results' of the competing principles.

  • boydasmith

    Contrary to the angst and bitter disappointment that millions of us feel, and that
    this article expresses, .... I think it's time to put away our 'demolition tools',

    and begin honing our 'TOOLS OF PERSUASION' -- a la Milton Friedman.

    It's blindingly obvious that all of us who support free-market, limited-government solutions have NOT made a persuasive enough case for individual freedom-and-responsibility, and limited government----on a moral basis.

    SO rather than being bitter and vindictive (of course it's a natural reaction),
    we should take this election as a beneficial and serious 'wake-up call' for evaluating
    OURSELVES,.. that is, in searching-out HOW to be more 'PERSUASIVE' about the principles of FREEDOM!

    We can't just assume others 'understand' automatically these principles? We must all teach and persuade! It will take patience, courage, and calm-steady focusing on the underlying principles of freedom IT WILL BE DIFFICULT, BUT REWARDING.

    It 's easy and lazy to be contentious, and to ridicule the fallacious beliefs of our opponents,...and deride what we think is errant strategy by those that we have agreement on principle with, BUT WE HAVE TO STOP WHINING, AND 'LEARN' HOW TO BE MORE PERSUASIVE! - The stakes are just too high,... practice calm persuasion..

      I agree. A governor in NM spoke at the GOP convention about how she became a Republican....That same conversion could very well take place and that blue state, by God, they're Republican too! There are many strongholds that blue state would appreciate like hard work, liberty, less government....After Obummer's policies begin to drag them down, they just may see the light...,

    Talk about writing an article to incite hate for a person that is in a position to find a way to help our country. I hate to see people read an article then spew hateful comments...this isn't any worse than the negative ad's run against Romney with the liberals calling Romney a liar, killer, tax cheat! What in the world is the matter with you Republicans is there no one to like anymore?...this is a part of Boehner's comments: "In order to garner Republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up the entitlement programs that are the primary drivers of our debt." What in the he!! wrong with this position?.Or maybe instead of falling over a cliff because of this article one of you could actually do some research to bear this article nothing more than hate speech!..I guess we could suggest the entire Republican congress/senate walk out, go across state lines and sit in a hotel until the country totally falls into the sea?

    Mr. Boehner, don't forget to get your car washed before you CAVE.

  • Ruby_Con

    I never could stand this POS. Oh yes please, please lead us off the cliff. Moron!

    Because you read and listen only to conservative chatter, maybe you haven't heard: the Tea Party is in its death throes. Do yourself and those who live around you a favor and have the balls to get more educated.

    Boehner. Get this through your heaqd. I am not ready to be led. Both you and the Democrats are not my leaders. Your are our employees sent to Washington to do our bidding and you are obligated to operate within the delineation of the constitution to perform those and only those duties assigned you.

  • aurora9

    Boehner is either a wimp, a Rino or a socialist. Hope that he gets voted out of office because of his weak leadership and his spineless backbone!

  • Dawn Owens

    Boy I moved out of Ohio in the nick of time..But IF we are to be led it really should be by a true AMERICAN not by an african mutt
