John Boehner, Please Retire

John Boehner SC John Boehner, Please Retire

It’s clear.  There will be no stopping Obamacare.  There will be no justice on Benghazi-gate.  There will be no stopping Barack Obama’s unconstitutional usurpations and abuses of power as long as John Boehner holds the reins of power as the Republican Speaker of the House.

It’s time for John Boehner to retire. He should let a younger leader, with more will to fight Obama, take leadership in the US House.

The situation is so dire that without new leadership, the Republican Party could actually dissolve into rival factions. He is even considering caving into Barack Obama’s drive for a massive tax increase.  We stand on the precipice of a total capitulation of the Republican agenda by Speaker Boehner.

We need real leaders to challenge Obama. As long as John Boehner remains Speaker of the House, Obamacare will remain the law of the land.

Back on July 1, 2012, just four short months ago, Boehner marched in front of the cameras on “Meet the Press” and vowed to do whatever it takes to stop Obamacare. Practically thumping his chest, he said: “It has to be ripped out by its roots.” And he added: “We will not flinch from our resolve to make sure this law is repealed in its entirety.”

Taking him at his word, 127 members of the House, led by Representatives Jim Jordan and Michele Bachmann, reminded Mr. Boehner that he had the ability to actually keep that promise and signed off on a letter asking Boehner to take the lead and allow the House of Representatives to finally wield its legitimate and constitutionally-granted power of the purse to “rescind all Obamacare implementation funds.”

Don’t be deceived by anything you hear on the nightly news; the sad and simple truth is that John Boehner and House Republicans already had – and still have – the power to stop the implementation of Obamacare.

They had that power from the very day that Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives back in January of 2011, and they have that power at this very moment.

Mr. Boehner simply needs to hold a simple up-or-down vote in the GOP-controlled House of Representatives to deny Obamacare funding, and Barack Obama and Harry Reid can’t do anything to stop it. It really is that simple.

The problem is not that Republicans can’t stop the implementation of Obamacare. The problem is that the so-called GOP Leadership won’t stop Obamacare, and that’s why we need a change in leadership.

So what’s Boehner’s excuse?

Boehner apparently has his reasons. We call them excuses. His surrogates argued that Boehner’s refusal to fund Obamacare could set the stage for Barack Obama to exact his revenge by ordering a “government shutdown” and blame it on Republicans.

We say let Mr. Obama take his best shot. At some point, the rubber has got to meet the road.

We don’t need to concede defeat. A “government shutdown” is not only not as bad as you’ve been lead to believe; it’s also the last thing Barack Obama wants. It puts a stop to Obama’s out-of-control spending.

What we need is a true leader at the helm who is not afraid to call Barack Obama’s bluff and negotiate from a position of strength, and that man is not John Boehner.

    Boehner is part of the problem, not part of the solution. I suspect that it is intentional.

    It just –sob–sob–brings tears to my–sob–sob–eyes to have to say this–Sit down and Shut Up, Speaker Boehner. You no longer represent nor speak for us the true Americans. You have no heart to do your duty to your Country or to uphold the Constitution. Do us all a favor–take your lifetime retirement on us and go home! You are doing more harm and good, selling us out.

    Boehner has the backbone of a jellyfish. Lots of promises and no action. Get some one in the position with some cajones, as they say in Spanish.

    No guts. Empty suit. And to think I sent him money once upon a time for his run for office. What a waste. Why not have Joe 'You Lie!' Wilson take the role? At least he has the balls to say what he and everybody else knows is true. Boehner has no integrity and nothing he says can be believed.

    Dear John, I agree you should at least step down as speaker and let someone with a spine take your place…like Trey Gowdy…PLEASE…I'm sure there's a nice bar and resturant in West Chester just waiting for you. Instead of standing [I really don't understand how a spineless person can stand] in front of the house podium, you could stand behind the bar and we'll even give you a BIG gavel…PLEASE?
