Democrats Defend Liberal Ally Speaker Boehner


First, Speaker of the House John Boehner so alienated Republicans by pushing President Obama’s amnesty that he needed Democrats to pass amnesty funding.

Now, Democrats are vowing to shield RINO Boehner from conservatives who actually want to pursue the Republican agenda.

From The Hill:

Cartoon_Republican_rollover_smA number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.

But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt.

“I’d probably vote for Boehner [because] who the hell is going to replace him? [Ted] Yoho?” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) said Wednesday, referencing the Florida Tea Party Republican who’s fought Boehner on a host of bipartisan compromise bills.

“In terms of the institution, I would rather have John Boehner as the Speaker than some of these characters who came here thinking that they’re going to change the world,” Pascrell added.

Liberal Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) agreed that, for Democrats, replacing Boehner could lead to a worse situation.

Boehner_Pelosi_loving_DemocratsThat really says it all, doesn’t it?

Why in the world would Democrats want John Boehner to be replaced as leader of the Republican majority??? After all, with John Boehner, they have a “man” who is completely willing (arguably eager) to roll over and surrender to the Left’s agenda, and pass their agenda items.

With “Republicans” like this, they don’t need a Democrat to run things. They get their agenda advanced without sticking their necks out at all!

You have Republicans who actually believe in documented Republican principles who want to replace this worthless surrender monkey…and on the other hand, you have Leftist Democrats who want to keep this worthless surrender monkey in “charge” of the U.S. House.

Oh, I absolutely LOVE this kind of unintended transparency!  A “Republican” “leader” so gutless, so craven, so sold-out to the agenda of his party’s enemy, that his party’s enemies defend him?  Talk about embarrassing! It proves that everything conservatives have said about this RINO sellout is true.

Just consider a little self-examination-something we should all do regularly. You wake up one day and realize that the people who most passionately support your group’s principles want to get rid of you…and the people who viscerally hate the things your group wants to accomplish are defending you.  Think about it:  does this reality bring a cold, gut-wrenching conclusion that you’ve royally screwed up…or do you double-down in your arrogance?  I know what most of us with a shred of decency would do…and I know what it looks like Boehner is doing (if he even has enough humility for that kind of introspection).

This is akin to the British speaking out in defense of Benedict Arnold’s command of West Point.

Would Americans have heeded British calls to leave Arnold in command of West Point?  Ah, no. They would have removed that worthless traitor with all haste.

Will Republicans remove RINO John Boehner from the Speaker’s position before he completely sells out the GOP-and America?

Time will tell.
