Boehner Will Support Obama´s
Syria Plan — ´This Is Something
The Country Needs To Do´

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/3/2013 11:38:35 AM

Both House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that they would support President Barack Obama´s plan for limited military action in Syria, with Boehner saying that it´s "something the country needs to do." Both addressed reporters after a meeting Tuesday morning between Obama and Congressional leaders on Syria. "I´m going to support the president´s call for action, and I believe my colleagues should," Boehner said. Boehner´s support is significant for passage in a couple of ways. He rarely gets out publicly ahead of his Republican conference, so it suggests that he feels strongly a

No surprise. We don´t know what the Emperor has on Boehner, but he must go. The Republicans will not remove him as Speaker. Just another reason why we need a new party.

If anyone is still wondering if Boehner can stand up to Obama, this is the final straw. Boehner can be bought and should just change his R to a D. What a weenie!

First he calls in Johnnie and Miss Lindsey to remind them what (blackmail) information he has they don´t wish to get out to the general public. (Lindsey, we all know you´re gay already.) Now he´s twisting John Boehner´s arm. I wonder what he has on Speaker Boehner???

I hope there are some clean, honest, upright, un-blackmail-able Republicans left to vote against this atrocious idea. We allowed 140,000 Syrians to be murdered, but we are going to war over the latest 400? Something is wrong here.

Boehner is too simple minded for his position. There are lots of alternatives:

1. Pass no bill. Leave the decision and resposibiltiy in Obama´s hands, so he garners attendand political fallout.

2. Pass a bill that authorize Obama to attack only if the U.N. authroizes the action, thereby separating the Republicans from the eventual decision and attendant politial fallout.

Hopefully the other members will make Boehner irrelevent.

Boehner said that only the U.S. has the "capability and the capacity" to respond to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad´s alleged use of chemical weapons against his own people on Aug. 21.

"The use of these weapons has to be responded to," Boehner said.


And he´s positive that Assad used the weapons and not the rebels?

No matter who used the weapons to kill the people ... all we are going to do is kill more of them. Does Boehner want to be responsible for that? Killer of the House?

What does that solve?

FTA: ""The use of these weapons has to be responded to," Boehner said.

Why this time and not the last time? Waiting for all the usual suspects to begin posting why we should continue to support the establishment republicans. This is irrefutable evidence that there isn´t a lick of difference between the two parties that are systematically destroying this country. There were many times in the past I have posted that the Barbarians are at the gate. Well no more; they are inside and holding the keys.

so we the people have absolutely no say in this. I believe there must be a ´´live boy/dead girl´´ episode in Boehner´s background. There´s got to be a damn good reason he´s such an easily manipulated goof.

At the same time, this could just be ´´business as usual´´ in DC. I´m reading This Town - it´s a real eye opener for anyone who still believes we have any political muscle as voters...

Since the Carter Administration, The U>S> has been doing its very best to wreck our relations with virtually every Nation in the Mid-East. John Boehner´s statement is just the latest turncoat decision for the U>S> Hey, why should he care what the overwhelming majority of Americans want. He was voted in to think for himself, not for Americans. In my opinion, we do not need to take military action anywhere outside of our borders at this time.

All those years when Pelosi and Reid actively undermined Bush and America must not have bothered Boehner, Cantor and McCain one bit.

I am not saying they need to undermine America, but could these born losers at least learn a little bit about opposition from the Dems? They didn´t even make Obama lift a finger!

Yeah, that´s it: BO has "something" on Boehner. Can´t possibly that Boehner, like many, think this it the right thing to do. You can quibble about how we got here and how late in the day it is, but why wouldn´t he support an effective response? Tossing a few missiles, no, but a punishing attack? How can anyone oppose that.

I don´t like Boehner either, but sometimes a broken clock is right twice a day.

it is a shattering thing to read that Boehner is on board with this - what are the constituents from his district saying? Can they mount a recall campaign?

In so many ways, Obama has gone it alone and made many things, including Syria, so much worse. He said he didn´t need Congress(he never did before). Let him do it on his own. Let Congress vote "present". And see what happens. Once Congress votes to approve, he will take credit if it goes well and blame Congress if it doesn´t. The man has no clue running anything except his community activism. Obama must have a lot of dirt on everyone in Washington because they all cave to his wishes.

The creature, Hussein, has previously stated he would always stand with his muslim brothers. He also provided his insight that the future does not belong to any who slander his profit of islam....IOW death to infidels. This pResident then allowed HIS ambassador and our brave US servicemen to die on the sands of Benghazi...terminating duty of any who would attempt to save them. This vile, evil, corrupt pervert is now one you will follow into battle? WTP do not agree. Take heed you trembling limp, weak kneed wimpy, man. The evil one has not changed his position in the slightest. Yet you still will not listen with the brain GOD gave you.

To not authorize would be pure political hypocrisy. For the GOP to not authorize this, yet to have been gung ho on Iraq would have been silly. Now, the decision to aid our enemy rests with Obama.

We went to war on the possibility of Hussein having weapons in Iraq. (Where did Syria get their WMD´s anyway?)

I´m simply stunned. I´m also fed-up with being stunned by this regime.

And now Boehner is asking the House to support this? And the Republicans are helping Obama mend his global reputation? Is this right? Are we actually worried about his reputation?

Do Republicans in Congress actually believe Obama cares anything about them? Don’t they know he will destroy them (again) if things don’t work out? Are we that stupid?

There is no plan to win this. We haven’t had a plan to “win” any war since World War II (regardless of the President’s and the Pentagon’s doggedness plan for heavy bombing in Vietnam, it still didn’t work).

And now, after all the revelations by the UN and reports from ABC news, we are still interested in going into Syria knowing full-well there is a possibility the Muslim Brotherhood gassed these people?

Don’t you think the Muslim Brotherhood understands public opinion/politics too? Didn’t they receive influence and morale boosting from Obama during visits to the White House?

Incredible. I´m simply stunned.

WHY are we involving ourselves in a muslim war? They have no compunction about murdering/terrorizing each other. Our goal should be protecting civilized people from their jihad against all non-muslims. Our government (with muslim czars) is using the "brilliant" Democrats and their acceptance of Marxism to turn country-after-country over to our enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood/al Qeada. The Dems envision Globalization, but I think Obama envisions an Islamic world, with himself as the Ruler of All.

Before 2008 I was always proud of the USA. Even when Obama was elected in 2008 I was still proud of America. We have never been perfect and we have made our fair share of mistakes at home and abroad. But through it all we always strove to do the right thing as a nation and as a people.

Since 2008 we have been changing into a nation I no longer recognize and admittedly I am repulsed by. Our politicians are only interested in themselves and unfortunately 99% are complete idiots. It is easy to say it is all Obama´s fault but it is not his entirely. We have supported and voted for these fools and we are the bigger fools for having done so.

Boehner´s actions today are those of a man who no longer understands what it means to be an American. Instead he is just another politician that can be found in any cesspool. When the bombs fall and children and civilians die the media will turn on them. When Syria becomes an Islamist state and a group arises like the Taliban did after the Russians left Afghanistan, what will they have accomplished?

I miss the United States of America that I once knew and loved. Unfortunately, everyday it is becoming clearer and clearer to me that she will not be returning.

#34, because the powers that be have not proven that Assad did it. It is more reasonably the work of the rebel opposition, trying to lure the U.S. into being al Quida´s air force. The ´opposition´ in Syria has been caught with sarin gas before, BTW. And why now? Why do we need to get into this just to keep Obama from being embarrassed because he shot off his big mouth about ´red lines?´ This is his doing. He wants to be able to brag about how big and brave HE is if it works (ala ´I got bin Ladin´), and blame the Republicans for making him do it if it turns out badly. Either way, the U.S. does not benefit. WE HAVE NO DOG IN THIS FIGHT!

Why wait another week or so and a lengthy Congressional debate to start the bombardment of Syria as the wimpy Republican leadership in the Congress has already caved?

As soon as the so-called collateral damage starts showing up, Obama will now be able to blame the Republicans.

The next big decision that Obama and the liberal Democrats will most probably make on Syria is to resettle a couple of million mostly poor Muslim refugees into the USA, recognizing that once eligible, that vast majority of them would become liberal Democrat voters in the years ahead.

If the wimpy Republicans put up an initial squawk, the liberal Democrats will threaten to call them out the Republicans as Islamophobe racists for opposing what could well be an open ended refugee flow from the Middle East. In a short time the wimpy Republicans would cave on that policy shift also, they always do in the end when the race card is played against them.

No Johnny, this is something the country doesn´t need to do. Why do we "need" to put American servicemen´s lives at risk because of an internal civil war? There is no eminent threat to this country. I say turn this whole situation over to the United Nations and let that gifted body decide what to do in all of it´s infinite wisdom. If not now when, and if not this issue then what issue is serious enough for them to take action on? It´s put up or shut up time. This ain´t our pig and it ain´t our farm.

Actually, this is brilliant. Unintentionally, probably, but brilliant nonetheless. Let the GOP leadership vote yes and the rank and file republicans vote no along with some of the dems. In the end, congress can vote it down, but Obama will have trouble claiming the republicans just want to thwart him.

This makes no sense and reflects very badly on Boehner. There may well be more to this than the public is being told - but if there is, now is the time to inform the American public of the real reasons behind what appears to be an act of gratuitous folly whose like I cannot recall. Nor am I at all happy with the failure of people like Boehner and McCain to explain and justify their claims that the use of nerve gas in a civil war is a threat to the U.S. or that intervening in that civil war will remove the alleged threat to the U.S.

These people cannot be as stupid and ignorant of history as they seem. They must have information or knowledge of objectives they have not shared with the American people. I don´t like that one bit, regardless of the rest of the story.

It begins to look like everyone in Washington needs to go home and a whole new crew sent in. The latter may not not any better, but it is hard to see how they could do any worse.

What happened to the United Nations? Aren´t they supposed to be issuing a report as to who did what to whom? Are they supposed to deal with trouble like this? What is the rush to act before they even have the chance to display their usual ineffectiveness? (The U.N. passed resolutions against Hussein for 20 years I believe, all of which he isgnored).

Obama is acting like a drunken, insane gunslinger and an American bully who doesn´t give a flip what "the rest of the world thinks." I thought that was GWB, not Obama. I thought the whole idea was to "lead from behind" so that "the rest of the world" would love us and be our friends. Is THIS the way to do that?

No it certainly isn´t Mr. Boehner. What the Country needs to do is focus on electing people next year who will kick you and other Obama excusers to the curb and start working on turning this economy around. Since you refuse to work on that.

I really want him to answer the question of why he thinks this country needs to put our military in the path of people who behead others and eat their innards? That will play real well just before an election year, won´t it?

I knew that this eunich was a hack a long time ago. Everytime Boehner has a chance to support the interest of the American people he folds like a cheap suit. From the first debt ceiling battle to Benghazi and now this. I don´t know what Axelgrease and co have on this doofus but he needs to be relieved of his speakership ASAP. And is it me or does Johnny boy look like he´s taking sips out of a flask every few hours? Maybe it´s stress or having his head up the presidential wahzoo. Who knows but maybe that´s the problem.

#49 forget about the UN as Obama can´t go back there. He closed off that international avenue by misleading both the UN and the Russians about his true intent on getting them to pass a UN resolution authorizing a limited use of force in Libya, then bombed the entire country for an extended period instead. With that, Obama burned his UN bridge and can´t expect any help from the UN on future use of force proposals, as the Russians have not forgotten and will probably use their veto to stop any future Obama use of force proposal.

There was a discussion on Rush´s program today. This scenario is similar to Sarejavo and Bosnia. I guess you´d have to study this and find the similarities.

I´ve come to a simple conclusion, the only one I believe can explain the betrayals Republicans commit against Americans on a daily basis. The powers-that-be hoovered trillions of our dollars via the economic stimulus. That is more than enough to buy off everyone in government, Republicans included. They´re bought and will stay bought.

I really don´t see any point in going to the polls & voting for repubs. Once they get to DC & get invited to the WH for dinner they change into dems. Once the immigration & the Syria plans are passed by the repubs it will be time for a third party.

Foolish Republicans project good and honest motives onto Obama. This is a mistake. And a guy like Boehner thinks highly of the institution of the presidency and wants to respect it, but can´t comprehend that a character like Obama is not worthy of presidential respect. Boehner needs to retire and return to his family Ohio bar where life is simpler and where his intuition about people is still valid. His instincts are all wrong for this Washington and this character Obama.

Clintons celebrate Chelsea’s

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

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. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. 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." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party.

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'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.
