Boehner: ´President´s Idea of
a Negotiation Is Roll Over
and Do What I Ask´

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Oh.) had some harsh words Sunday for Barack Obama´s proposal to avert the looming fiscal cliff. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Boehner said, "The president´s idea of a negotiation is roll over and do what I ask." Chris Wallace, Host: So, you´ve been around this time a long time, you´ve been in a lot of negotiations. What is their game? What is their thinking as to how they´re going to work -- well, they just figure they won, they´re going to get what they want? John Boehner, Republican Speaker of the House: I have no idea, Chris. If I knew, I would share it with

Comments:
Actually, lest he give vapors to the early morning Church going crowd, Boehner could have just said, "Just bend over..." I feel like 0bama is leading back to the days when Mother gave US a spoonful of cod liver oil for whatever ailed US.

BTW, who lit the fire under Boehner. If he had been talking and acting like our GOP leader, we might have surely won the November election. Previously, as House Majority Speaker, he was more like small embers glowing when 0bama spoke.

Does this suggest that perhaps Boehner is going to pretend to be a conservative Republican for a while? What brought that on?

I don´t believe Boehner is operating from any sense of principal. He just stuck his finger in the wind. That wind has some in the media questioning Obama´s dictator-like edicts. Maybe it´s giving the speaker some idea of standing up straight and saying something semi-courageous. But if the media starts to point their finger at Boehner again, he will fold faster than a cheap suit.
I´m so ashamed of the GOP.

It´s fine to fight back, Rep. Boehner, but say what the GOP wants to do! Just say No Taxes Without Cuts Now.

This is because Dear Leader, noble peas prize be upon him, is an alumni of the Chicago Bath House School of Negotiation. Amerika´s Beloved Messiah likes to play butch, too, on occassion. Now do what the Macho Man says and don´t make a scene, Mr. Boehner.

Since the idea of Republicans voting Present and letting Obama own the coming disaster was gaining steam, Obama upped the anty to ridiculous to bring back the perception that Republicans were the obstructioninsts.

Simple gamesmanship. I don´t see how Republicans can win this no matter what they do. The evil party is...well, evil.

Johnnie boy is just upset that Zero dumped him for Billy to go golfing. So, John´s going to show Zero by saying nasty things about his ideas and plans. As soon as they kiss and make up, he´ll go back to shedding tears and kowtowing (in the most genteel manner as stipulated and described in the "The Republican Suck Up Manual in Crossing the Aisle vol 35", of course).

Boehner is checkmated and doesn´t know what to do about it.Obama keeps adding deal sweetners for his own side when the old situation was bad enough as it was. Boehner should pass a bill in the House extending the bush tax cuts for everybody but the rich and dare Obama to veto it.Obama is just jaw flapping about the rich,most rich people in this country are liberals.

Hate to say it #7 but being supportive of republican leadership has got us precisely to this rotten state of affairs. Boehnor may seem to be coming on strong - a bit too little too late -if only hecould/would sustain it.

For every little titbit that Zippy adds, Boehner should show the cojones to reduce something even more from the Republican side. The ground rule - made loudly clear - should be that the Entitlement State does not need, deserve, or is legally eligible for a single incremental cent of the tax payer´s money. After that we can negotiate whatever you want. If the Beltway RINOs have that much spine we would have a Republican in the White House and a Republican Senate.

Zippy ridiculously proposed that Congress permanently relinquish it´s Constitutional authority to control the debt limit. Ok, we conservatives can be just as "ridiculous", (although it would be good governance.) Let´s include with the tax rate increases that Congress and the President must give up their pensions and other post-office perks when they retire. (Need to lower the debt don´t ya know.) Including eliminating their exemptions from Obamacare and social security payments. No COLA´s for salaries. Let´s see how that would play out in the press when congress critters balk at the compromise proposal.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years
New York Times, by Julia Preston    Original Article

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
