How President Obama Lost His
Shirt to John Boehner

Forbes, by Ralph Benko

Original Article

Posted By:supersid, 1/29/2013 10:16:50 PM

The House, under the leadership of Speaker John Boehner, has precipitated a postponement in the debt ceiling fight until May. (Snip) Dealt a weak hand, Boehner managed to 99% outfox, on tax policy, a president who had the massive apparatus of the executive branch, the Senate majority, and a left-leaning national elite media whooping it up for a whopping tax increase. Even more impressively, Boehner pulled it off with steady nerves while under heavy pressure from the anti-spending hawks in his own caucus.

Awesome post. If it works, a reprieve for Boehner may be quite deserved. I hope for some hope, things have gotten so bad. I am thankful for even small glimmers of the stuff. This post helps. Thx.

Uncle, uncle. Perhaps the Speaker was not weeping with desperation but crying for joy? If he has indeed done the almost impossible, let´s go for the dark one´s pants next time round. No shirt, no pants, no shoes. The emperor needs a new wardrobe.
John perhaps I was a tad hard on you if wrong, I sincerely apologize. Time will tell. If true, here´s a high five.

Sadly tho oblamer built in spending increases back 2 years ago and then we had only to deal with increases on those. So zippy already got spending increases in before anyone realized we had to fight to claw back further increases.
And with all the prior spending authorizations (in lieu of budgets) the dems have been happily increasing the baseline.
So while I am happy for an AMT permanent patch, we still have a HUGE spending problem that I doubt cry baby has the &*)(*- to fight against.

Here comes the sequester. Heh heh heh. Let it happen.

Someone brought up Obamacare. The lynchpins of Obamacare are the state insurance exchanges. Without them, Obamacare comes crashing down like a house of cards with nothing left of it but the taxes it imposes. What makes that interesting is that those states with liberal democrat governments, which are most inclined to be supportive of Obamacare, can´t afford to set up the exchanges. They are broke. They simply don´t have the money to do it. And the states that CAN afford to set them up are in that position because they have fiscally responsible governments (read Republican), so they WON´T set them up. In short, it is not looking good for Obamacare in 2013.

With mandatory across-the-board spending cuts for the progressives´ pet domestic programs kicking in under the sequester, and a crashing Obamacare framework, 2013 is looking to be a no good very bad year for Obama.

If indeed this is a stroke of genius (I personally believe it is propaganda aimed at improving Boehner´s image, since he´s less popular than Pelosi, and that´s with the repubs) the repubs will still find a way to blow it.

They appear to only care about everyone the democrats care about, not the citizens they represent.

If Boehner did in fact out-maneuver the boy-king, did he stick it to obamacare? That would be the ultimate win.

Some people are determined to be miserable.

This is very good news so take heart.

A word on all this crying you are talking about. When Boehner was elected Speaker he was overcome by emotion. Looking back at his youth and remenbering how far down he once was, down enough to have to do, as he said, every filthy, disgusting job you could imagine, tears came to his eyes. This is not weakness. Weakness would have been staying at that level instead of pulling himself up to were he now is.

Having blasted Boehner as an utter incompetent, I am now claiming a Congressional privilege, that being the right to revise and extend my remarks for the record.

Boehner appears to be far smarter than I´d give him credit for being. Securing 99% of the Bush Tax cuts as permanent is truly astonishing. His willingness to allow the sequester to go into effect appears to be equally brilliant.

My apologies to Speaker Boehner. Sometimes we are all too ready to succumb to the MFM´s narrative of our Republican leaders being too stupid and gutless to succeed. We must remember that the MFM´s ultimate goal is to demoralize us.

Well done, John Boehner. I may just open up the pocketbook again for my GOP brethren.

As unsophisticated, and shortsighted as I might be- please tell me how I should be thrilled with this man when my paychecks are $300 lighter each month?

As an almost new mother I could certainly really use that money right now for diapers, or other provisions.

I work very, very hard. I´ve been working since I´ve been 14 years old. Continuously with no government assistance. I deserve to keep that money.

I don´t trust this man. And don´t pee on me and tell me it´s raining.

And let´s not forget Fauxbama´s doofus move re: social security. He cut payments--making it look much more like a tax than a retirement plan--but now that party has ended. Everybody just got less money in their January check. Whoyougonnacall? Not Boehner. Call the doofus; he did it to you. All of a sudden the American workers have realized that ´taxes have gone up under Obama´.

Never forget--Pres. Obama grew up an only child with a single mother. Speaker Boehner grew up in a small house in a family with twelve siblings! John Boehner is a much better negotiator than Obama will ever be.
Obama assumed the GOP would object to defense cuts. Boehner didn´t take the bait, and now the whole sequester drawdown will take effect starting in May.
And, those wretched Bush tax cuts ´for the rich´ are permament.
The best part was watching the MSM heap scorn on the Speaker, which gave the boy-king a false sense of security. The Speaker played the MSM, too.

I just have to comment first on the home page photo..... is Barcky claiming to be a ballerina now too?

Now to this article: The author himself refers to the ´left-leaning national elite media´ and their ability to reshape the narrative. Once they realize they´ve been had, they´ll report it as something of disdain, and Obama will still come out of it sympathetic. Am I the only one who hears the ´John Boehner and the Republican elite lied to the President to achieve a goal that causes massive financial disaster to the middle class´ coming?

I too hold my elation in reserve until this plays out..... hopefully, as planned by Boehner. And of course, by then, there will be another situation to be dealt with.

Sorry, Boehner fans, I want to be there with you.

A GOP sweep of the 2014 midterm elections would be very encouraging. It would indicate the repudiation of the incompetence and anti jobs agendas of Obama and socialist Democrats. Major GOP wins would also show clearly that Obama has no mandate at all and was not elected by the taxpaying working family people of this nation.

I will fess up to misjudging the Speaker in this instance. However I´ll withhold final judgement to see if he handles himself similarly in the fights that are coming our way in the next few months. I hope this wasn´t just a ´one off´. Unfortunately, I´ve been fooled before, though.

I believe Boehner originally thought he could negotiate with BO during the last debt ceiling battle. He found out that BO is not an honest broker. So, he figured out how to give BO what he harps about, which is all BO is focused on, and win lots of other points and create a better strategic position.

Will it work? Maybe. But this administration has shown that it doesn´t consider itself bound by the rules. The courts are just starting to catch up with the administration´s actions by rejecting recess appointments, etc. But that won´t stop them from spending more than they have. And without the concurrence of the Senate and a wimpy court, it´s hard to control the administration´s behavior. So Boehner may win the legislative points but not what actually happens.

This administration is lawless. They do what they want like a throwback to old Western towns run by a boss. The law was what he said it was. State Marshalls and Courts put and end to that. What will put an end to BO´s lawlessness?

#14 is right !

The game of politics is no longer about "us" vs "them".

It is now a ONE party affair with two minor factions.

If the HOUSE controls all spending, and the Repub´s control the house, tell me again why we have a spending problem ?

I have been a proud supporter of Boehner. When I actually took the time to read the details of his deal with the maoist I was quite impressed.

Bush tax cuts PERMANENT.

Clearly, actually detting the details was too difficult for the loudmouths. Better to trash Boehner.

Before the actual deal I called Boener´s office and told him to get the best deal he could and ignore the loudmouths.

Too many here ignore the little fact that O won the election.

It sure is wonderful to read good news for a change. The court decision last week and now this. I wish Cavuto had covered this because he has a way of presenting things with great clarity. Maybe he will. I sure hope this is all true because I too will have renewed hope with Speaker Boehner and will have to apologize to him for hateful remarks. If we had a media that functioned properly we would have been advised of this.

I don´t think you understand. This regime is illegitimate and unlawful. They do not follow the law. Any "victory" by the Republicans will be quashed by an executive order. My fellow patriots; it does not matter what the house does because we are in a de facto communist dictatorship. The communist/democrats will do whatever they want and the Republicans will be powerless to stop them. They have already demonstrated their zeal in breaking any law that may constrain them. It pains me to think about it because I have young grandchildren that I dearly love; but there is going to be unprecedented violence in the near future and it will not start with our side.

Yes 21, we too are adjusting to a much lighter pay check and it does not feel good. No diapers here but the food budget was the first to feel the pinch.

While this news is heartening - if true - how come Rush hasn´t talked about this? - it´s a bandaid on a very big boo boo and one that is getting worse.

And 16 - do you know whereof you speak? Two of our sons work for big insurance companies. Haven´t heard about this and will have to investigate further.

And for those celebrating the federal courts overturning the Obozo recess appaintments, I don´t see any action happening except the WH totally ignoring the courts. And they have stated their intention to do so. The NLRB countinues along it´s merry way with the say appointees.

To quote Johnny Cash, "Dream on, dream on, teenage queen..." Unfortunately, there´s one little logic flaw in the author´s pronouncement of the Bush tax cuts being preserved as a "victory:" the large number of Americans who don´t pay federal income taxes and the low information voters don´t care and STILL believe Boehner was handed his lunch by Obammy. Thus, the end result is, they will continue to vote for the handouts and the likes of Zero.

Loudmouths huh... this country is in deep trouble and the last time I looked, everyone´s taxes went up in 2013, not just the one percent, and that is if you still have a job. Who was it that won that fiscal fight. The economy shrunk in the last quarter of 2012 and the GDP is now in minus at -0.1%. Rick Santelli said that we are now Europe. He´s right, we are still cruising along piling up Trillion dollar budget debts with no relief in sight.

In the Senate they just named John Kerry SOS with just 3 Republicans voting against him and Benghazi Hillary just opened a Presidential PAC to run for President in 2016. Now what did Boehner do again... delay a vote until the first part of 2013. Isn´t that just like voting present?

No. 26, I have to admit I am with you. . .i am not clear of the meaning either. I googled the term and found this link at the top. (it is from Auburn.). There are probably other sites that will explain sequester in simpler terms.
But you remind me, we need to be educated if we have any hope of overcoming this pResident´s policies . . Thank you.

The elephant in the room is still the debt ceiling. If it goes up any higher and Bho spends accordingly, we will be running in the red forever as a country. Tax rates won´t matter a bit.

# 20 LOL !
The right, led by Limbaugh and Levin , are always trashing Republicans .
They never give credit to them or discuss what they have accomplished
which is amazing considering their mathematical
and Constitutional disadvantages.
McConnell got Reid to agree to new filibuster rules
which help the 45 Senate Republicans.
The left was outraged and they were calling for Reid to be replaced.
McCain and Graham led the fight against Susan Rice .
No matter what Republicans do, they never
get credit from the far right.

I certainly hope that we can stop riding the amnesty hobby horse. The Pilgrims were illegal immigrants.
Waving off the violations of law by illegal immigrants is not the best course; but we have to weigh the gravity of the offense. Crossing the border to feed one´s family is not on the scale of axe murder.
It´s time to wake up and smell the coffee. The issue is not going to go away and the GOP brand is corroded by its constant presence. Write a tough law, welcome the educated, the investors, and the workers and get us off the razor´s edge.
Some seem to want to wait in the bunker and rail against the world. The "amnesty" war is lost rhetorically and politically.

First, the Dems always mouthed that they wanted to repeal the Bush tax cuts, but they didn´t mean it. They, too, wanted them permanent for the 95% to 98%. The tax hike in the highest bracket still hurts and there is no AMT relief for that bracket. Jobs will be hurt and the economy may not improve for a while.

We shall see come what May in the debt ceiling. Boehner may have a negotiating chip over the sequester, but it´s not really spending in general that is the problem -- we need entitlement reform, including (ugh are we there already?) Obamacare reform. Those are the tough nuts that Boehner and the Republicans have not been able to crack.

Advantage still leans to the Dems and libs, I´m afraid.

Reviewing recent history it seems that "never" is the time to fight. It was not time in debt ceiling #1 or the fiscal cliff, or debt ceiling #2 or the sequestration fight. I ask Boehner fans to go on the record. When is the time to fight?

One point the article doesn´t make, but which is relevant: what with nothing but continuing resolutions in place and an effective spending freeze, there is no money budgeted for ObamaCare. The Democrats wanted to hide ObamaCare´s costs by pushing them past the 2012 election, and wanted to hide their hideous spending spree by refusing to pass new budgets. So the last Federal budget in place is the one from 2009, which includes no ObamaCare costs (it didn´t exist then), and thus are they hoist by their own petard. Assuming the Republicans hang tough and Obama spends money only as appropriated by Congress. Two large assumptions, I know, but it´s better than the other way around.

Does anyone really believe any of this matters? Bread and circuses for the masses, like watching the WWF and thinking it´s "real". This is nothing but a Shirts & Skins game. They´re all actually on the same team.

It´s a No-Broehner.

The Speaker is not a bad guy at all.
He´s in a tough environment - Senate, WH, and MediaHo´s against the House GOP.

This piece (thank you for posting, OP) gives a very favorable view about Boehner´s
maneuvering. Nice if it´s right.

We can still turn things around with the 2014 midterms, and no reason to get more
excited than necessary in the interim. The DimWitz may shoot themselves in the foot.

Obie WON Kenya-Obie is a mean, ugly, jackass.
Sooner or later more Americans will be disgusted and alienated by this foreigner.
Keep cool and capitalize on it when the time is ripe.

Reagan was always very optimistic about our chances. Learn from him.

Two faults I see in this: 1)Tax cuts are never permanent. 2) Obama does whatever he well pleases.

i lived through one depression and though very young it left a lasting impression on me. my mother used to go food shopping at 90 p.m. on a saturday night to buy food that the sellers would sell for practically nothing rather than throw it away. we did not have food dislikes. listen to people talk of the depression. it will open your eyes.

Not bad, Boehner. To those who got sucked in by the media narrative that Boehner is an idiot, you might guess again.

#64, My dad lived thru the depression too. When he was 5 and his brother 6, they would go out in the evening when the train passed by to see if any coal fell out so that they could heat the house (this is North Dakota). He and his brother had the attic and icicles hung from the beams during the winter. Years later, he determined that the railmen were actually pitching some coal out to them. God Bless those men.

I think his depression & poverty stories made him an incredible human - in fact, everyone I have ever known to have the same kind of stories were likewise thoughtful, humble beings.

I am hoping that a fiscal crisis isn´t necessary to change the arrogance and narcisism of so many politicians and their followers but I do understand that poverty can be an effective teacher.

The point is some people cannot understand that sometimes a hammer isn´t the correct tool to use where a screw driver is needed.
Your taxes went up because Obe´s little tax holiday for 2012 was only an illusion that was never intended to last beyond the election and was not originated by the House.
Have you read yet that the mandate tax on non insured is filled with exclusions that may doom the entire Supreme ruling it´s legal as a tax mandate if your state refused to set up an exchange?

Senate Reaches Bipartisan
Fiscal Deal

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic and Republican leaders reached final agreement on a deal to reopen the government and extend its borrowing authority into February, with votes in the House and Senate possibly to begin this afternoon, according to aides familiar with the negotiations. Senate Republicans have gathered for a final review, but lawmakers have given no indication they will block it. A government shutdown into its third week yielded virtually no concessions to the Republicans other than some minor tightening of income verifications for people obtaining subsidized insurance premiums under the new health care law.

In 20 or so years of political speechwriting, the only condition I have ever set down in advance of being hired is that I would never, under any circumstances, assist any candidate or officeholder in promoting the cause of abortion. (Snip) Come to think of it, I first learned about the “abortion rights” cause and about the ruthlessness of industrialized farming around the same time, at the age of 13 or 14, and my reaction to both was similar: You just don’t treat life that way. Look at pictures of the victims in each case, at the thing itself, and

On his radio show the other day, Hugh Hewitt caught me by surprise and asked me about running for the United States Senate from New Hampshire. My various consultants, pollsters, PACs and exploratory committees haven’t fine-tuned every detail of my platform just yet, but I can say this without a doubt: I will not vote for any “comprehensive” bill, whether on immigration, health care or anything else. “Comprehensive” today is a euphemism for interminably long, poorly drafted, and entirely unread – not just by the peoples’ representatives but by our robed rulers, too (how many of those Supreme Court justices

In the small but cohesive Mormon community where he grew up, Hans Mattsson was a solid believer and a pillar of the church. (Snip) But when he discovered credible evidence that the church’s founder, Joseph Smith, was a polygamist and that the Book of Mormon and other scriptures were rife with historical anomalies, Mr. Mattsson said he felt that the foundation on which he had built his life began to crumble. Around the world and in the United States, where the faith was founded, the Mormon Church is grappling with a wave of doubt and disillusionment

Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death. Mr. Zimmerman said he shot

SANFORD, Fla. — The jury deliberating George Zimmerman´s fate has reached a verdict. They reached the verdict after deliberating all day on Saturday. Late in the evening the jurors asked for clarification on the instructions regarding manslaughter. At about 6 p.m. ET lawyers for both sides appeared in court where Judge Debra Nelson conferred with them about the manslaughter question and then recessed court.

Just when I thought the George Zimmerman "trial" couldn´t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state´s "theory of the case" is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it´s something.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
