Just ONE example is when he didn’t stand strong on his demands for the debt ceiling with Obimbo. That’s when Obimbo was given the full deck of cards to create the “Super Committee.” That worked out really well, didn’t it?
Is this just what cry-babies do? Or, maybe, 20 years in the House with Queen Pelosi has something to do with it. Come to think of it, I’d go around crying all the time, too, if I had to think about being around Pelosi... PERIOD!
Like I've said before, I'll vote Republican. But I'm going to focus more on the House and Senate races so that, hopefully, we’re not completely screwed, down-ballot, later on.
Boehner Sabotaging Fast and Furious Probe?
From The Patriot Update -- Rumors abound this week of secret negotiations, backdoor meetings and veiled threats aimed at halting Rep. Issa’s investigation of the Fast and Furious scandal. Regretfully, such rumors are all too credible given Speaker Boehner’s history of always seeking a compromise even when victory is in sight.
What’s going on here? Every time Issa’s committee holds a public hearing, new evidence comes to light. Why should the investigation be aborted? Why would Republicans want the investigation halted? What possible “deal” could the White House offer to Boehner to persuade him to end the investigation? The only compromise Republicans in Congress should accept in the case of Attorney General Holder is his early resignation instead of impeachment and removal.
The reported “deal” Boehner and Holder are discussing would let higher ups in the Department of Justice off the hook if they prosecute one or two individual ATF supervisors. Holder would then claim he “cleaned up the mess” and be free from any moral or political culpability. How does that sound, folks?
Rep. Issa must persevere in his investigation and seek the truth no matter where it leads. As for Speaker Boehner, if he has a problem with this, he should go into the hospital for a backbone transplant.Maybe “Boner” needs to spend a little less time on the tanning bed and more time at the gym trying to build up that backbone.
And, maybe, the name “Boner” doesn’t fit him after all; he sure doesn’t have one up his back.
