I can’t tell you how I hate to start down this road of attacking John Boehner, but the time has come, at least for
me. I have gone along with cutting programs each and every week, but believed it when told in the long run they would get the job done. I didn’t like the continual Continuing Resolutions after the first one. THEN I read this week, that as we cut a mighty $6 Billion, on the same day we added another $72 Billion to the debt. Mark Steyn is saying John Boehner is wearing Bob Dole’s suit, and Mark Levine says Boehner has weakened the Republican Party. I agree with both Marks. See a Hugh Hewitt and Mark Steyn video below.
“You weakened your own hand, you weakened the Republican Party, but more importantly you’re undermining conservative principles and the case we need to make. Why do you think Obama’s not negotiating with you, Mr. Boehner? Why do you think Mr. Reid could care less what you have to say? Because you have now backed yourself into a corner. They know your recent $6 billion in cuts. They know very well because those were the cuts they offered and same with the $4 billion before that. Those $10 billion in cuts were offered by the liberal Democrats. Now what are you going to do?”
I think John Boehner has basically climbed into the Bob Dole suit, and I think they misunderstand the lessons of the 2010 election, which is that the tea party chose to work within the diseased husk of the Republican Party it loathes.
The following video is Steyn’s interview with Hugh Hewitt, and believe me, the opening lines from Hugh Hewitt are depressing, and then…and then…Steyn describes us as “the brokest country in the history of the planet.”
