Boehner, GOP Leadership Must Go!!

Posted by Brian

Boehner needs to go big, or go home!

John Boehner has presided over the biggest spending Congress in history.  His feckless leadership and lack of anything resembling intestinal fortitude in dealing with Obama, Pelosi and Reid, has seriously damaged the GOP platform of reining in spending and dealing with this country's financial crisis.
The team of Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy have been nothing short of impotent in projecting strength of character, or of putting out a coherent message to the American public.  Boehner has, in every legislative battle, been on defense.  Even when Boehner has had the legislative upper hand in opinion polls (the debt limit fight) and support, he has caved to Pelosi and the Dems, in a "show of bipartisanship".

Tell me Mr. Speaker, when do the Democrats have to show a little bipartisan goodwill? You start your negotiations out from a position of weakness. With the starting point favoring the Democrats, you play prevent defense giving up even more ground.
Voters need to, and have been, knocking out RINO incumbents to complement the conservatives currently in Congress this election cycle, and the next several as well. We need more real leaders in Congress like Rep. Allen West, Joe Wilson, Tim Scott, Joe Walsh and others.
The new fight over the debt limit is coming up.  A dollar to a doughnut that Boehner once again snatches defeat from the jaws of victory and caves, raising the debt-ceiling without getting any spending cuts.  NOT promises! Real spending cuts.
Any takers?

Debt Up $1.59T Under GOP House—More in 15 Months Than First 97 Congresses Combined
By Terence P. Jeffrey June 1, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - The Republican-controlled House of Representatives, which took office in January 2011, has enacted federal spending bills under which the national debt has increased more in less than one term of Congress than in the first 97 Congresses combined.
In the fifteen months that the Republican-controlled House of Representatives--led by Speaker John Boehner--has effectively enjoyed a constitutional veto over federal spending, the federal government’s debt has increased by about $1.59 trillion.
