What Boehner’s Quitting Means

Speaker Boehner is quitting the House…thankfully, so what does it mean? He’s half of the B/M Congressional leadership that’s failed to live up to GOP campaign promises. Mitch McConnell needs to go next. Whether or not that’s possible, the pressure needs to be applied as it was to Boehner.

With his departure, it’s time for the GOP to change tactics from surrender leadership to Principles of War leadership. It’s time to go on the offensive, apply iron clad principles of success and defend America from those determined to tear it down. Application of the Principles of War in the House, in place of Boehner tears, will go a long way to restoring voter faith in the Congress, and boost GOP chances in the 2016 elections.

Why “RINO” Just Doesn’t Cut It Anymore

rp_314110554_150_150.jpgThe term “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) has long been a derogatory term used to label politicians who register as republicans, but act/vote like democrats. Typically, they campaign as conservatives, donning a cloak of voting history camouflage until the election returns are in, and then quickly revert to acting as if they never heard the word “conservative”.

I don’t think the RINO moniker is effective any more. Establishment republicans now dominate the party and sullied the GOP brand. Do nothing Republicans are the norm, not the exception. The challenges facing America are so severe, and the path out of it so clear, that a new term is needed.

The answer lies in Congress, where approvals are at historic lows, despite GOP majorities that were elected to solve some of those problems, and fight for this country. The total lack of leadership by Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell deserve proper recognition. The only people that they seem brave enough to attack are other republicans.

In their honor, I’m coining a new label “Boehner/McConnell” Republicans, or “B/M” Republicans. I highly doubt that most of the GOP House/Senate members who voted for Boehner and McConnell would run as B/M Republicans. They will distance themselves as far from B/M as they possibly can in the run up to 2016.

It’s time to call them all out, and hold them accountable if they were rank and file, establishment followers. Ask your GOP representatives if they are Boehner/McConnell Republicans, or if they stand with the groundswell of Americans who care more for the country than their party.

NOTE: The only thing more destructive to America’s future than B/M Republicans, are O/P/R (Obama/Pelosi/Reid) Democrats!

  • If General Eisenhower had been a Boehner/McConnell General he would not have launched the D-Day Invasion because the allies only controlled 1/2 of the English Channel.
  • If Lt Col Travis was a Boehner/McConnell Texan he would have attacked Jim Bowie¬†and Daniel Boone as “extremists”, stated that he didn’t have enough troops to win while quickly surrendering to Santa Anna.
  • If Lt Col Travis was an Obama/Pelosi/Reid Texan he would have waited for the cover of darkness before smuggling Mexican troops through the open gate, while proudly stating that the new troops would stimulate the Alamo’s economy.

Why Boehner’s Clever Tactic Is Bad Strategy

Speaker of the House John Boehner successfully maneuvered the CRAMNIBUS through the U.S. House. An argument could be made that it was a resounding tactical success. From a short-term perspective the speaker’s 1600-page bill funded most of the federal government through the end of September 2015. The House GOP leadership claims this is smart business because it allows them to focus on the Republican agenda when the new Congress is sworn in next month instead of having to go back and waste time and energy funding the government.

There’s no question that Boehner and the GOP establishment should soon have a majority in Congress within which to move their agenda. Tactical success, but will the CRAMNIBUS turn out to be a strategic blunder?

Americans gave the GOP a historic victory in November. Not a single Republican, including John Boehner, ran on a platform of furthering Barack Obama’s agenda. Even Democrats ran against Barack Obama and most attempted to distance themselves at every opportunity. The country is watching and they expect that the GOP is going to follow through with their campaign promises. The potential is very high that Boehner’s tactical victory with the CRAMNIBUS will disenfranchise GOP voters and convince them that they were duped. I’ve knocked on a lot of doors and I’ve heard a lot of people argue that there’s no difference between Democrats and Republicans. Unfortunately, Boehner’s proving them correct when he enlisted Barack Obama’s help to pass the CRAMNIBUS.

In addition, Republicans were elected to repeal Obama care. They were elected to stop what was known to be a pending constitution busting executive amnesty. The Republicans just completely funded Obama care and gave the President three months to institutionalize executive amnesty through CR funding for DHS. The excuses must stop. There can’t be any more cries from the GOP leadership that they don’t have enough votes in Congress, or that they don’t control the White House, or that they don’t have enough power to over ride a veto. These complaints ring hollow. The GOP will soon control both chambers in Congress. They’ll control the legislative body in Toto. We are all watching, and a failure now to live up to campaign promises will surely result in strategic failure in the 2016 election. For if Boehner proves that he’s as untrustworthy as he himself stated the President was, the good will shown the GOP will die. Failure in 2016 will doom the country to solidification of a big government, authoritarian, progressive Democrat agenda.

Speaking of Trustworthy!
