  1. “Boehner: I “absolutely” trust Obama . . . Washington Times”

    *!
    ??!

    Uh, John, have you been paying ANY attention the last FOUR YEARS? Has ANYTHING Obama said, even to his faithful, been TRUSTWORTY? Has ANYTHING Obama said to YOU been TRUSTWORTHY?

    Here, lachrymose one. Let me point just a FEW examples of “Trustworthyness” out for you;

    The American automobile industry has come roaring back…So now I want to say what we did with the auto industry, we can do it in manufacturing across America.

    And this doesn’t even START on Benghazi!

    You may want to lift your head up out of Obama’s lap periodically and take a breath. Only oxygen deprivation can POSSIBLY explain THAT statement.

    You know, the “Cincy” part in my handle is a reference to “Cincinnati”. That’s because I live in the vicinity of The People’s Republic of Cincinnati. That’s juuuust down the road (I-75, in this case) from YOUR district, Mr. Boehner. I am rather familiar with the folks that sent you to Washington, and I know WHY they sent you. Hint; it WASN’T to trust Obama!

    You seem unfamiliar with your home town. Maybe this will help?

    http://www.westchesteroh.org/CDEDdemographics.cfm

    Yeah, I know, the demos are a little different in Fairfield and Middletown, and of course you have the EXTREMELY silly college town of Oxford in your bailiwick, but by and large, your voters are, uh, REPUBLICANS. You know, what you DON’T act like? Lower taxes, less government, strong military…Stuff like that.

    And they DON’T trust OBAMA!

    BECAUSE HE’S NOT TRUSTWORTHY!

    Get a GRIP, John, or you’re going to lose that cushy job – because the voters will THROW YOU OUT!

    And Mr. Trusty Obama won’t help you. Just ask Arlen Specter how trustworthy the Dems and their boss are – and THAT guy gave him OBAMACARE! You’ll have to shout pretty loud, though, because he died after being disgraced and humilitated by the trusty Dems, and it may be a little warm and noisy where he is…

    Unless … Maybe you’re just PLAYING Obama? Maybe you just WANT him to think you trust him? Nice try, but no one knows a lie like a liar, and his “peeps” wouldn’t vote for you if you had a free cell phone machine in your a$$.

    Just call him out, quit trusting, and stand firm against him. That’s what we need you to do. Quit “trusting” a snake not to bite you – again.

    • Thank you for the homework.
      I have family & friends who believe that Obama has * never * lied during his Presidency, I repeat, * never *.

  2. Obama and Boehner – debt not a problem. Cyprus to raid banks – cannot pay debt. Obama and Boehner – a special kind of stupid.

  3. Doesn’t help to give Bawling Boehner advice, cincycinco. He’s a corporatist who sold out all of his conservative principles long ago.

    Mark Levin was on Hannity last week when Sean asked him what advice he would give congressional leaders if he was in a meeting with them. Mark said he wouldn’t be meeting with them; he’d be meeting with fellow conservatives to figure out how to replace Boehner. I agree with him. Boehner is a lost cause and he needs to be replaced as speaker.

  4. They had a chance to replace Boehner in January. Now we will have to wait almost two more years to get it done. His comments were a bomb to all that Paul Ryan stands for.

    • Replacing a speaker during their term isn’t totally outside of the realm of possibility, Julie. Speaker of the House Jim Wright (D-TX) resigned the office five months into his second term as speaker after his phony book scam was exposed.

        • I will not sit down and shut up when it comes to getting rid of the deadwood in Congress. There are many other more qualified people to be Speaker of the House than John Boehner. His interview with ABC this weekend where he agreed with Obama’s statement that we don’t have a debt problem, only proves his inadequacy as defender of Republican values and principles.

          • All that may be true–but you are undermining the one person with standing to duke it out with these people. Yes, he may not do it the way you want–but I doubt he will be replaced. Oh, well–go ahead and pound on the guy–it is helping the Big O, tho.

          • Sorry about the twice, my computer has issues and I didn’t think the first one took.

            Yes, its very long (RickW), but that’s kind of the POINT – that he has a LOOOOONG history of LYING, and there is ABSOLUTELY NO empirical evidence for Boehner to say anything that dumb.

            Again, I apologize to everyone – especially Mr. Koffler – for the double posting. I DON”T apologize for the list of lies – that’s just the ABRIDGED version, and doesn’t even START on Benghazi – THAT would be a HUGE list!

          • Also, now that I apologize for the double posting, I’m going to do it again – kinda – because I don’t know if anyone made it to the bottom of the list (TL:DNR, I know).

            Just some friendly advice for Mr. B from a nearby constiutency, and maybe acquaint some of you out-of-town folks with Crying Johnny’s “home town”…

            So, repeating JUST that part;

            -And this doesn’t even START on Benghazi!

        • Recall from home might do it. He’s got those folks stirred up. There ARE folks in more urbanized areas and – of course – in the university town of Oxford, OH, that wouldn’t agree with a recall, but that’s because they’re in Obama’s demographic anyway and probably wouldn’t want to deprive their god of his House-sitting sip-sip…

          • You may want to lift your head up out of Obama’s lap periodically and take a breath. Only oxygen deprivation can POSSIBLY explain THAT statement.

            Nice. To me it’s wishful thinking that Boehner would be recalled–certainly outsiders trying to weaken him would not be regarded well in Ohio. Oh, well, no one is saying shut up–you just don’t want to be the one crying is all.

  5. The headlines which really have disturbed me are the ones coming out of Cyprus and the European Union. I hope they don’t give the One any ideas.

  6. Surprise! Surpise! Hillary Clinton is now for gay marriage. The comparison of this country to the decadence of Weimar is unsettling. We’re falling apart economically, like Weimar, and this is the issue which is front and central of stage.

  7. Mr. Boehner, if you trust Obama ” absolutely ” then I’d like to sell you a bridge in Brooklyn that I own, no, really I own it.
    You can trust me on this, absolutely.

  8. In other news, we have a new Labor Secretary, Tom Perez, a civil rights atty. straight out of Harvard and the DOJ who champions the minimum wage as a ‘living wage’ and has done nothing except defend grievances against the private sector. Oh, and by the way, he speaks Spanish – a key requirement. Viva Mexico!

    • Oh yeah, gotta pay off the lackeys who did his dirty work in politicizing the DOJ. No doubt he’ll be confirmed even though this is the man who claims the Voting Rights Act doesn’t pertain to white people. The DOJ already had a conviction of the two New Black Panthers who intimidated voters with their militaristic uniforms and billy clubs, yet this guy shut it down because the boss ordered him to.
