(Fox News)   Boehner is getting blasted as too weak to control his caucus, but would it really be better if he was a cold, ruthless, mean-spirited, vengeful, harpy? Like, you know, Hillary Clinton? Whose husband had a blowjob from Monica Lewinsky, btw   (foxnews.com ) divider line

The striking thing about Boehner's latest round of bad press is that he actually did what the establishment press wanted. He cleared the way for Congress to raise the debt ceiling without the histrionics of a shutdown showdown that would have spooked the markets.

The second time. But hey, 1-2, right? If he was a baseball player and hit .500 he'd be in the Hall of Fame!

Let's be honest here: Boehner is flaccid and impotent as a leader.
 
2014-02-14 10:21:14 AM  
Boehner can't control his caucus? Geeze, I'd hate to be on the janitorial staff that has to clean up his restroom!


I know, I know... I groaned at that one too...

I love when the right goes after Hillary for three reasons: 1. I personally don't care for her. 2. They couldn't possibly be going at it any worse. They attack in the ugliest way possible. 3. I want to say they're tilting at windmills, but it's more like they're aiming all the weaponry in the wrong direction. She ain't running.

When it becomes obvious that Hillary isn't going to be the Democratic nominee in 2016, does the right claim victory or collectively realize they've been firing on the wrong target this whole time?

Boehner fell on his sword and prevented a catastrophic worldwide Depression (with a capital "D").
That's worth a kudo or two in my book, even though it's a self-inflicted wound.

The striking thing about Boehner's latest round of bad press is that he actually did what the establishment press wanted. He cleared the way for Congress to raise the debt ceiling without the histrionics of a shutdown showdown that would have spooked the markets.
Of course, Boehner was forced to do that because he didn't have the votes to do anything else. He had talked about demanding conditions from the administration in exchange for passing the bill-most recently, the relatively small-ticket item of restoring a full cost-of-living increase for military pensions. But when Boehner couldn't unite his Tea Party wing on that, he punted.


Fox News: Fair and Balanced.  Because within their thinly veiled hit piece on Hillary, they bury the real reason people are criticizing Boehner.  Not because he "did what the establishment wanted", but because he blew hot air about NOT doing it and didn't follow through.  If he did follow through, of course, he would get even more criticism, but that's because his stated goals are not only destructive to the country, they fail to make the president look bad (which is the not-so-well-hidden goal).

While I'm pretty "meh" on her candidacy, I think she needs to run, at the very least in order to be a target of the right's vitriol, and drain their coffers a bit.

Don't get the headline. Boehner gives horrible blowjobs.

Ted Cruz doesn't get described as ruthless either-more like a wacko bird, to use the phrase recycled by such critics as John McCain. The Texas senator, who led last year's shutdown strategy, arguably pursued a ruthless tactic when he derailed plans to allow the Senate to pass the debt-ceiling hike by voice vote.


Careful guys, Cruz may sue you for libel. He keeps insisting he never planned to shutdown the government.
 
2014-02-14 10:32:15 AM  
I visited freeperville this a.m.

they link to an op-ed explaining that, due to Tea Party/Far Right inflexibility, Boehner "folded" on the debt limit without getting anything in return - ie, the pipeline.

the comments that followed gave me hope that, at some point (sooner would be better) the GOP will come to understand the self-identified "pure americans" are unfit to govern for the same intractable mind-set they believe is their core strength

Boehner may be the worst speaker in history but, give the man credit - he's been hamstrung to a degree he likely didn't plan for

the comments on another article on gay marriage just gave me a sad.....

Clearly the former.  When has the right ever taken a good introspective look at themselves and come to any sort of correct decision?

Considering this is on FoxNews, that was actually a pretty good article. No derp to speak of.
 
2014-02-14 10:34:43 AM  
As much as I love flogging Boehner, it seems unlikely that anyone can do much do much to control the Tea Partiers; they're all in safe Republican districts and they're going to derp until the cows come home. Boehner has at least figured out that they've got to stop looking unreasonable, and get the basic measure that are needed to keep the country running to the floor for a vote. A lot of this probably has to do with Obama's 2012 victory and filibuster reform in the Senate; but if it were, let's say, Bachman or Steve King there instead of Boehner, they might just let the country default, and not even understand what they've done.

A winning Cruz/Palin ticket would be so cool in an alternate universe.

You could make book on how many days before some mysterious meth head from Wasila took out the chief and ole "You betcha" became president.

Well, I think it was generally about Boehner being weak and using Christie, Cruz, and Clinton as points of comparison.

Bad analogy.  I don't think Boehner wants anything to do with TP at this point.

Though the GOP seems to slowly be learning that A) there aren't enough teahaddists to actually form a voting block that can derail bipartisan legislation and B) States are too large (and gerrymander proof) for the tea party to take over the Senate for more than a couple of days at a time.   Add to that the impossibility of ever seeing a tea party darling gain the presidency (and hence, never having tea party SCOTUS appointments).  The writing is on the wall for this chapter of US history.  The corporate money is going to drain out of the tea party because there's no ROI and eventually they'll just fade away into facebook posts.

I think the evidence is that she plans on running at this point, but I imagine it is more likely a (relatively) young whippersnapper will come through more or less out of nowhere during the run up to the primaries. Sort of like what happened in 2008, basically.

HRC would be the biggest "name brand" in the race, by a wide margin.

But she is also the most despised woman in American politics, and she has already demonstrated a tragic inability to campaign strategically.

Is Wes Clark too old now? {googles}  Uh, yep. Never mind.

The true vitriolic attacks on Boehner can be found at another website. While farkers express opinions on his job performance they at least understand that he has had to herd cats. The voters who back those felines seem to think Boehner is standing in the way of a utopia where the US lives debt free by virtue of austerity and Ted Cruz gets to be elected president at the mid-terms.

I am pretty sure Republican vitriolic attacks on HRC are well known - it isn't like they haven't been engaged in them since she was first lady.

The end of Boehner's career is nigh and HRC may not run - but I am fairly sure no matter who the future players are you will continue to see inequity somehow

She still beats all Republicans in a head to head race last I checked (maybe not "Gene Eric" though).  Personally, I'm luke warm on her because though she'd be infinitely better than a Republican, she still has bedroom eyes for Wall St. which is a terrible trait in a politician.

Wes Clark actually impressed me a fair bit last time he campaigned way, way back.

I'd like to see some kind of middle class populist get into the oval office, but the only legitimate option there is Elizabeth Warren and I'm not sure if the average US citizen would take to her or not because Fox despises her and the other media outlets (who are run by the 1% as well) won't enjoy her platform one bit.

I have no idea what you're talking about. Remember when some pop star created that campaign song for Obama and then BOOM Hilary's team immediately upped the ante with that toe-tapping masterpiece.

When it comes to nominating a chief executive, I guess I just don't value excitement and snazziness as much as you do. But I'm still not sure if Hill-dog's beating anyone on that front, either.

Like it or not, excitement and snazziness are part and parcel of the political process since Nixon decided LazyShave was the way to go during his debate with Kennedy. Wes Clark was the Dark Horse of the 2004 campaign, and fizzled out like a wet sparkler. When you're bad enough at campaigning that your policy initiatives are murky and incomprehensible, then you're toast.

I'm pretty sure that's why she keeps slightly dangling it out there. She is unlikely to run, but they're already draining their coffers and attacking her.  She's not stupid. She's putting it out there and they are taking the bait like the idiots they are.

Wait a minute.  Clinton got a BJ in the Oval Office you say?  Well, that changes everything.

I am certainly not voting for him the next time he runs for President.
