Almost three months ago, Tea Party Nation called on conservatives to primary John Boehner when he is up for reelection next year. If there is any doubt of the need to primary John “I want to surrender early and often” Boehner, he has just removed it.
At a private meeting on April 25th with Tea Party activists, Boehner was asked if the GOP would raise the debt ceiling, he said yes.
He then went on to add the debt ceiling would be raised again and again.
It is time to repudiate John Boehner.
It is time to replace John Boehner.
The Constitution and the House Rules are silent as to whether a sitting speaker can be replaced during a session of Congress. The Republicans need to replace Boehner, immediately.
America sent a powerful message last November. John Boehner was given a political mandate that few have ever had. What has he done? He squandered it.
It would be nice if he had principles and a backbone. He has neither. His only concern seems to be his next tee time, drink and cigarette.
To quote a California Republican, he is a “girly man.”
The debt ceiling should be an issue that is a no-brainer. Americans by a 2-1 margin do not want the debt ceiling raised. Americans want the out of control spending controlled. What does Boehner want to do? He wants to spit in the face of America!
John, try to buy a clue. Do you remember 2007? Do you know why America voted Republicans out of power? America was tired of the GOP saying one thing and doing another. America was tired of Republicans claiming to be tough on spending; yet spending like drunken Democrats. The reason you are the Speaker and not the MINORITY leader is that America believed the Republicans would change things.
Boehner does not get it. All he will do is drive the GOP back into a minority in the Congress and give Obama, Pelosi and Reid the ability to bankrupt the country and send us sliding into socialism at breakneck speed.
The GOP model is the next guy in line gets the job. Message to the Republican Party: It is time to break the model!
There are some great conservative Republican Congressmen. Ignoring Michele Bachmann, who would be great, but will be running for President, we have people who get it who would make a much better Speaker. Paul Ryan gets it. Steve King gets it. Marsha Blackburn gets it. Those are just three names picked out quickly. There are even others we could add.
The House GOP needs to have another election as soon as possible, remove and replace John Boehner as the Speaker of the House.
For those of us in the Tea Party movement, there is no more compromise possible. We have to go all out. While we need to primary John Boehner next year, we need to do something now. We cannot sit back while John Boehner acts like Barack Obama’s partner in crime.
It is time tomorrow to call all of our Republican Congressmen and tell them the Tea Party says Boehner has to go. It is time to remind our Congressmen that the GOP is the Party of Reagan, not the party of John Boehner’s freshly laundered White Flag of Surrender.
Judson: We should have a national rally to shake this guy Boehner up: I'd love it if Beck blew out Boehner's tires right in DC; hell, he hasn't a thing to lose from it; and maybe a few trash apropro remarks upon the Media Giant Fox would do right too.
Is the Tea Party willing to organize a 'Roman Senate' meeting and invite the false 'Caesar' to attend?
What do we do? How do we get the power to remove Boehner? I honestly do not have a clue as to how to get the ball rolling. Help me out here, because I really do want him GONE.
You are so right !!!!!!!!!!! Mitch McConnel has to go too !!!!!!!!!! What a worthless piece of s*** they both are!!!
Tell me where in the hell was the Tea Party in helping Moffitt win the governorship ??????? David Williams is NOT the answer !!!!!
Tough Love will win and that is what we must all exercise.
