Boehner re-elected as Speaker;
Nine Republicans defect in vote

The Hill [Washington DC], by Pete Kasperowicz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/3/2013 1:44:54 PM

Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) was re-elected Speaker of the House on Thursday after a week of rumors of a possible GOP revolt. Boehner won a bare majority in a vote that saw nine Republicans vote for other GOP members, and several others who abstained from voting or voted "present." Two years ago, Boehner won all available 241 GOP votes. In a vote that opened the 113th Congress, Justin Amash (R-Mich.) voted for Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho).

The RINOs will ensure that the head eunuch remains in power and continue to bow and worship at the feet of the Obama administration.
The idea of conservative values and the needs of the American people are far down the RINO priority list. They are there to stroke their egos with power and get re-elected.
The corruption of the American soul by the White House, Congress, Senate and the propaganda media will continue the downward spiral of America within the decade we will just be another third world dictatorship.

Boehner has done a fine job. Hulskamp and the other guys who got booted from their committee assignments need to put their big boy britches on. Time to grow up and work on solutions that can muster majority support. Spit wad boys go to the back of the line. Cantor and Boehner have already engineered one big win (2010) and survived a tough election in November.

Conservatives were also very sure that Mitt would win and he didn´t and I do think that John was right on and his fellow pubbies that did not vote for him are pretty dull and dumb - now the dims know that there is a rift in the Party and will use it.

The GOP won`t stand up to their own Speaker. They have no chance against Obama.

Expect more gun control, more taxes and illegals getting a free ride to citizenship. On top of that, expect more republicans an independents to stay home during the midterm election in 2014, thus throwing the `gavel` back to Pelosi. She must be licking her lips at the thought of getting Speaker Force One back.

Money bills must start in the House. So just don´t raise the debt ceiling and make the chief freaking executive deal with it. The President cannot raise the debt ceiling.
The Preezey Poser will put down his golf clubs and cry if they don´t raise the debt ceiling. So let´s watch. Shut the government down (excluding military and law enforcement) -- shut it down without pay -- and don´t listen to the Pravda media. We have a spending catastrophe to deal with. Deal with it.

#7, you couldn´t be more wrong. The vast majority of conservatives and Tea Party adherents did not want Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate. We held our noses and voted for him last November but as we suspected he lost. The unprincipled elite of the Republican party is responsible for yet another electoral failure.

What #4 and #7 said. BTW, If there are so many tough conservatives in the House, where were they today?? I didn´t see anyone step up to be sacrificed for party "unity". At least John Boehner is trying to cut spending. It´s pathetic that some Republicans continue to demonize each other while the demonrats laugh their collective faces off. Can´t say I blame them. And another thing, the wunderkind Paul Ryan voted FOR the fiscal cliff bill. Guess that doesn´t matter...

#8, speak for yourself. I am as conservative as anyone you ever met and I supported Mitt Romney since 2008. It´s an overreach to believe you can speak for all conservatives. I´m so weary of the purists who think we only have to stand up and say "boo" and the Dems will fall over in a dead faint, allowing us to rule the country. Boehner is being blamed for not saying boo loud enough, apparently. We have to have the ammunition, people, and with only the House, we´re underarmed. Yelling "boo" isn´t enough. I guarantee no two people on this thread can agree on every point of a plan for what is next. So, we simply wheel and fire on our own instead of trying to strategize and focus. It´s disgusting, disheartening and frightening.

Boehner is not the kind of tough leader we need in the House. He is collegial and tries to get along while the other side is playing full contact karate. Wrong person, wrong time. I believe him when he told the caucus that was done dealing with Obama -- read he will just give in.

Boehner needs to go to the Mayo Clinic, while Barry is away on vacation, to get a testicle transplant so he can face him when he returns. We needed a speaker who can stand up to him - not someone who says openly that he is unable to negotiate one on one with the President. What kind of a wimp is he? Let´s get tough on the deficit and spending and stop crying about it.

1. Calls for and end to demonizing fellow conservatives would probably carry greater weight if they weren´t followed by sneering references to Ryan.

2. Yesterdays result was an inevitable consequence of running a candidate unable to articulate a consistent message of the evils of expansive government and crony capitalism. Vilifying conservative ideas in February and March made it difficult for those principles to be the battleground for this negotiation.

3. Is is really necessary to correct the deliberate obfuscation among our own of who and how conservative principles are articulated. Here´s a hint, given the willingness of Romney supporters to ignore the lessons of 2010 (which was hardly orchestrated by Boehner or Cantor), they probably ought not try to carry the banner of conservative thought into the next battle.
We all see how desperately you want to lead, but maybe you need to check your GPS.

#4, the Tea Party caused the 2010 upset, not Boehner and Cantor.

They should all be voted out in 2014. There really is no difference between the RINOs and the Dems.

Hulskamp has a PHD in agriculture management representing a heavily AG state. Removing him from that committee is abuse of power by Boehner.
Boehner declared war on TEA party conservatives, instead of Obama and democrats and war he is going to get.

#31 it was Gingrich and Perry that where vilifying conservative principals during the republican primary. I´m amazed at the lack of reality based thinking. So many of you advocate letting us go off the fiscal cliff, thereby raising taxes on all americans. Brilliant strategy, the republicans can then be viewed as the party of tax raisers, and Obama can then be a champion of tax cutting. But lets not think of that, lets just stamp our feet and eat our own. As far as all conservatives voting for Romney that´s bull. Less of the base voted in 2012 that 2008. Unfortunately some unbelievable people are conservative.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound.

So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face."

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
