Boehner Unloads At Conservative
Groups That Oppose The Budget Deal:
´This Is Ridiculous!´

Business Insider, by Brett LoGiurato

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 12/11/2013 11:16:54 AM

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans

Bend Over Johnny strikes again.

Anything that Patty Murray agrees too cannot be good for the nation or taxpayers.

Mark my words on this ... it won´t be conservative opposition that kills this deal.

It´ll be changes required by Dear Leader(US) and the Regime, who from all I read, had NOTHING (as usual) to do with the deal.

Boehner is so far over the line it´s getting ridiculous. The liberals Ryan, Boehner, McCain, McConnell & Cantor are destroying what´s left of the republican party. Boehner is like the WH always has his liberal back ups behind him for support. Can´t stand on his own two feet.

What´s the Heritage plan and how do they propose passing it and getting Obama to sign off on it?

Boehner had a CR deal with the Senate that kept all the sequester cuts in place but it wasn´t good enough for the defund caucus. How did that government shutdown affect Obamacare funding? It didn´t. 90% of the Obamacare funding is mandatory.

A question to ALL of you Ldotters whom are big supporters of Speaker Boehner:

Have you had enough of him yet?

If the good people of Ohio reelect this arse of a republican, it will be the same mistake made by the voters of Arizona when they kept McCain in the Senate.

Boehner has been in DC so long he´s has no idea what it´s like in the real world of paying taxes, paying for your own obamacare, limo rides, drinks, dinner, gasoline, air fare etc. I guess when the taxpayers foot your bills you live in the big you can´t touch me DC bubble.

Amen # 5 and # 10.
Boehner´s remarks were delivered yesterday when the usual whining from the usual groups
had begun-before any budget details had been released.
They whine and they fundraise .
DeMint forfeited his chance to influence Senate decisions by going for the big paycheck
and the private jet.
The rest of the usual whiners like Kibbe at
Freedom Works , Limbaugh, Levin et.al don´t have the stones to actually run for election where they could influential in making the sausage.
The usual suspects sit on the sidelines and throw rocks at every elected Republican .
The loudmouths should put their money where their big mouths are and run for office.
And try dealing with a House that´s nearly 50 % Democrat,
a Senate where Democrats have a 10 seat majority and a Democrat president.
These shady operatives make their living by convincing the gullible that the House is almost 100 % Republican
and in the Senate it´s the Republicans who have the 10 seat majority and the power.
They demand perfection when the political reality makes that impossible.
And they know it-it´s all about ginning up the radio ratings and the fundraising for their own personal gain.

DeMint left because he couldn´t stomach the RINOS any longer and could accomplish what he wanted to as a conservative.
This is a samo samo budget deal we´ve come to expect from RINO traitors..all the spending on the front end and cuts over the next 10 years..they never happen as experience has shown.

When I saw the headline, I knew which names would be lined up, as a previous poster said, mindlessly throwing rocks. We should not allow attention to be diverted from the disaster of Obamacare to "will the GOP shut down the government again". Yes, I know who shut it down, but I also know who always gets the blame and all of us should realize that nothing was gained from the shutdown fiasco. Paul Ryan has gotten probably the best deal possible, a long way from perfect, but at least we didn´t have to give away too much, we avoid the phony but loud accusations of being constantly obstructionist, and Obama gets no relief from Obamacare focus by the media and the nation.

The first step to getting out of a hole is to stop digging. The rinos don´t stop digging, they just buy different shovels to keep us rubes entertained.
The debt cannot be addressed until the deficit is less than zero. They aren´t even willing to do that.

#17. Your comments reflect the REAL problem with republicans; ie., they´re concerned with perception instead of concentrating on doing the right thing, and what´s best for the country.

I would argue the shutdown instigated by Senator Cruz (in particular), gained more respect for republicans, than any other single thing they´ve done over the past decade.

Ad hominem attacks against Jim DeMint are vile. No one here has personal knowledge of the circumstances surrounding his accepting his current position. This is exactly what it looks like. Those who can´t be persuasive based on the subject matter make personal attacks.

These attacks generally originate from those supporting compromise by conservatives. Without attacking a person, can you articulate a conservative reason why it is good government to increase spending or continue the disaster of Obamacare?

If a cat calls himself a dog long enough, does he become a dog? What is wrong with admitting you are not a conservative, if you are not a conservative?

Politics is not the art of compromise, it is the art of getting what you want. Sometimes you can use compromise to advance this purpose. The Progressives, like Pavlov, have trained Progressive Republicans to drool when they throw them a bone. How do you reverse this? You demand more. Our problem is not even mostly public perception, but where it is, we need perceived difference, not Washington-business-as-usual. Otherwise, we are fighting to move the bargain-point back to the middle. It takes courage. Stand fast. Fake conservatives need not apply.

I had hoped that Paul Ryan might have been able to teach muttonheaded Patty Murray some elements of finance 101. His could not have been a more difficult task. However, the outcome of all that effort is predictably negligible, probably a few degrees more in debt than we were before - and why? Democrats have been scared into producing a budget- finally- and Republicans continue to be scared out of their wits to challenge any realistic spending cuts.

The usual go-along-to-get-along crowd has arrived. Sorry, but "this is the best deal we could get" just doesn´t play anymore. Maybe 30 years ago, when we had no idea what was going on in the cloakrooms and back stairs. In the modern age, we have insider access, we are more informed on the ugly machinations of government. In short, you don´t have to be a 20 year RINO to know how to make it work.

That so many here would just shrug their collective shoulders and keep the out of control spending machine rolling is sickening. How do we know, the hard line conservative fiscal ideas wouldn´t work? We ain´t never tried them. We make a few squeeks, then give the Dems everything they want, everytime.

"We didn´t give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor!" Indeed.

There is no disgrace in compromise when the other side is at least as strong as you are. There is a huge difference between that and giving away the store, which some of you seem to think Boehner & co. are doing.

How many more (so-called) shutdowns will it take to get some of you to realize it is a losing tactic? Most of the country just does not perceive such things as we do.

And as to dumping Boehner - who do you really think would be willing to challenge him, and where would he or she get the votes to unseat him? Some of you seem to think this is all some sort of movie or morality play, and you´re clamoring to fast-forward to the triumphant final scene. I just doesn´t work that way.

I´m guessing that this is supposed to be a dagger through the heart of Conservatives. The RINOs AND Democrats both want the Tea Party to kill it. Then they will all get praise from the media at the same time the media vilifies the Tea Party. Therefore Tea Party challenges will lose steam. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just a hunch.

The Moderates are at it again. To them, it is ok to have Government grow and allow more Socialism to creep in since the Dems have the votes. In other words, surrender our freedoms in the name of "it´s the best deal we can get". Well of course it is the best deal we can get if we do not FIGHT for freedom. You high brow Moderates are treasonous to America just like the Left. You give up because there are more of them than us. Shame on you for being ok with Socialism lite. Let the Left take America down, but why must you also be a part of our ruin? I realize the Moderates are butt kissers but I am a butt kicker and I will never go along with helping destroy this Country.

There are plenty of congress critters that I would like to get rid of too, but there aren´t enough of us in NV to even get rid of the evil Harry Reid. Since I don´t have a vote, it will be up to the House to get rid of Boehner. You posters, who want him out, had better move to his state, run for office, then try to get rid of him. Lots of luck.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans

CHINA - a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. (snip) Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes. An eyewitness said: "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument."

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! 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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. 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

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the
