I Agree With John Boehner

Great news, America! Some of the dumbest people in the country are leading your nation, according to Speaker of the House John Boehner.

Did we really need him to tell us that?

“We got some of the smartest people in the country who serve here, and some of the dumbest. We got some of the best people you’d ever meet, and some of the raunchiest. We’ve got ’em all,” he said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

Well except for the smart people serve in Washington bit, he’s right.  Congress is a collection of perverts and reprobates and idiots.  And that’s why America, the wealthiest Country in the world, is really poor.

The Tale of the Spineless President and the Arrogant Speaker of the House

By now you’ve heard that the President asked Congress if he could speak to both Houses next week.  That’s proper protocol.  What isn’t proper, and what has never happened before, is that the Speaker said ‘no’, that’s not a good time for us.

So, in typical Obama style, he caved and said ‘ok then, I’ll do it Thursday’.

He should have insisted on doing it when he first planned.  Who cares if the Repub candidates are squabbling that night in a debate?  Is he the President of the entire Country or is he the servant of the Republican candidates?  These days it’s hard to tell, isn’t it.

And Boehner comes off no better.  Instead, he once more proves to one and all that he isn’t about getting things done, he’s all about just saying no.

The Congress and the White House are so worried about their political posturing that they would rather quibble than get their work done so Americans can get to work.  They are a loathesome and tiresome and really ridiculous and petty lot of do-nothings but seek re-electioners and I hope the rest of you have the sense God gave a worm and refuse to send them back to their jobs.

Pay attention: they don’t want you to have a job, so put them out of one.

Good – Gridlock Ensured and The Economy Soon to be Completely Decimated

Thanks Congress.  This is the best thing that could ever happen to the Democratic party, and the Republicans don’t have the foresight or sense to see it.

In a move that could deadlock the 12-member panel over taxes, but perhaps set the stage for changes later, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell named Tea Party ally Patrick Toomey to the panel with Jon Kyl and Rob Portman. The panel is known as the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction and was established to find $1.5 trillion in additional budget savings over 10 years, but markets have been looking for signs that it may be able to do more. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, the top Republican in Congress, appointed Dave Camp, who chairs the tax-writing House Ways & Means Committee, along with conservative “young gun” Jeb Hensarling and Fred Upton. The committee also will have six Democratic members.

Voters won’t blame Obama and the Democrats for the impasse coming- they will blame the Tea people and the Republicans.  And rightly so.  Because even though a vast majority of Americans want reasoned measures, tax increases for the rich, and consensus, the Republicans have chosen members of the ‘super committee’ who won’t deliver any of those, triggering automatic cuts that will absolutely destroy whatever’s left of the economy.  When hundreds of thousands lose their jobs because of Republican intransigence, those angry folk won’t be voting Republican in 2o12.

A blind bat can see that. It’s just a shame that the entire country will have to suffer for the stupidity of Congress. But that’s no different than things are now.

Cowardly Politicians

Utterly unsurprising, Congress folk who have gone home to raise funds for themselves (that’s what they’re always doing) aren’t at all interested in facing the music for their incompetence.

The town hall season is upon us and members of congress will undoubtedly face questions about the nation’s economic problems, the recent debt ceiling battle, and job creation.

That’s on the minds of many employed and out of work Americans and it wasn’t a town hall, but constituents in Speaker John Boehner’s district tried to talk to the Republican House leader on Monday about the lack of jobs in the Speaker’s district. Protestors showed up at his district office in West Chester, Ohio as well as outside a fundraiser at a golf club in Dublin, Ohio.

Protestors tried to go into the office to speak to staff, but staffers locked the door. The group then traveled to the country club where, according to protest organizers, police asked them to leave, and told them Boehner “doesn’t choose to come out.”

He doesn’t want to face the voters, so the voters should ignore him when elections roll around again.

If Only it Were True, Maybe The Imbeciles in Washington Might Act Right

With lawmakers still at an impasse over increasing the debt ceiling, a special team of 40 eighth-grade civics teachers was air-dropped into Washington earlier today in a last-ditch effort to teach congressional leaders how the government’s legislative process works. “We started them off with the basics, like the difference between a senator and a representative, and then moved on to more complex concepts, like what a resolution is,” Bozeman, MT social studies teacher Heidi Rossmiller told reporters as all 535 members of Congress copied down the definition of “checks and balances” from a whiteboard in the House chamber. “It’s been a bit of an uphill battle, since most of them seemed to have no real sense of how or why a bill is passed, and Sen. [Harry] Reid [D-NV] had to come up to me during a break and ask, ‘Ms. Rossmiller, what happens if Congress can’t reach a compromise?’ But hopefully it will all start to sink in soon.” At press time, an unruly House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) had noisily stormed out of a lecture on bipartisan cooperation, claiming it was “too hard.”

Oh The Onion… if only it were true, maybe the imbeciles in Washington might act right.

I, For One, Would Like to Thank You, Congress

I’ve learned a lot from you these past several years and most particularly these past several months and indeed even weeks.  Here’s just a sampling:

1- You don’t have to be intelligent to make it to the top.  Since you guys (and gals) are so bereft of sense and sensibility as well as intellect and yet have risen to the top of the political ladder, I feel pretty encouraged.  So, thank you.

2- You can up your credit limit any time you want.  This one’s especially useful.  Now all those bothersome rejection letters for increased credit limits can just be ignored.  Whew, what a relief.  Now, like you, I’m as free as a bird to become a burden to decent hard working people.  Like you, I can just kick the can down the road and let someone else worry about paying off everything I may ever owe.  (Sorry Rachel, Doris, but thank you Congress!)

3- You can bicker and accomplish nothing and still feel important!  This one really really makes me happy.  I think you know why!  I’ve learned so much from the way you guys (and gals) act in Washington.  It’s just miraculous to me that you manage to get people to value you.  I’m filled with as much envy for your achievement as the lowly bloggers who have a mere handful of readers have for me.

4- And best of all, you don’t have to pay your bills!  Woohoo!  I like this one a lot.  Though it’s similar to #2 above they are a bit different.  In #2 you pretend to pay but really don’t.  Here, you don’t even have to pretend to pay!!!!!

5- So, Congress, when you run up massive bills, pretend to pay them, bicker and snivel and still do nothing, and finally just refuse to pay what you owe, you give me the courage and the strength to do the very same.

I look forward to the day the US defaults on its obligations.  That’s the day I’m tearing up all my bills and tossing them in the trash and when my creditors ask me for their money I’ll just tell them that since Congress doesn’t have to pay, neither do I!  So, thank you Congress!  Not only will you destroy the economy, but you’ll allow me to become a little fragment of the destruction of the economy too!

Hence, I beg you, DO NOT agree to a debt ceiling increase.  PLEASE, DEFAULT.  Please.  So I can opt out too.  And I thank you in advance.

[I can’t be charged with contempt of Congress, but I most definitely do have contempt for Congress].

John Boehner is Beholding to a Drug Addict

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) outlined the GOP’s debt-ceiling plan to conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh on Monday before showing it to his conference. On Monday during his radio program, Limbaugh talked about the call he received from Boehner. Limbaugh’s support of the plan would be advantageous to Republicans because it might help rally the conservative base.

That sheds an interesting light on the Speaker of the House: he’s a toady of Limbaugh, a drug addict. If Obama or Reid were calling up Brad Pitt can you imagine the whining by the teabaggers?  I can just see Boehner kowtowing to Limbaugh.  ‘Yes master, I will obey master.  Certainly I will seek my master’s permission before I act and I will toe the line lest I enrage my master and he become displeased with me…’

Politicians: they’re all just such dirtbags serving their own interests and special interests rather than the interests of the people who elected them and have to endure their idiotic policies.

Speaking of the Inevitable…

CNN reports just now

Speaker John Boehner said in a conference call with House Republicans that he would continue to pursue a two-stage strategy that would give the Treasury only about $1 trillion in additional borrowing authority, forcing another debt-limit battle early next year.  Hours before Asian financial markets were set to open Sunday evening, House and Senate leaders are now threatening to pursue two different approaches to averting a government default.

Well isn’t that special.  ‘A house divided against itself cannot stand’ – Jesus.  The inevitable may be nearer than we imagined.

Boehner Jokes, About Weiner’s Name…

Only a Washington-onian would completely miss the irony and hypocrisy.

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner drew laughs from an audience at Ohio State University with a joke about the name of a colleague involved in a scandal over lewd photos.  Boehner said Sunday during a commencement speech at Ohio Stadium that his own last name has been pronounced to rhyme with the words honor and leaner and even “boner.”  Then he said: “Thank God it’s not Weiner.”

Boehner got emotional several times during his brief speech to thousands of graduates and about 40,000 of their relatives and friends.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone cry as much as that guy.  He cries more than Joel did all those years he missed being #1…

He encouraged students to work hard, be humble and persevere. He said they should not be afraid to occasionally shed a tear of thanks for the gifts in their lives.

Yeah, sure, every now and then…  Anyways, Well done Dr. Boehner…

Total Depravity Illustrated: John ‘the Greedy’ Boehner

When John Boehner rose from Minority Leader to Speaker in January, he not only expanded his staff and his paycheck, he more than doubled the expense-account check he cashes each month.  As Minority Leader, the Ohio Republican had received a direct payment of $833 each month from taxpayers to cover “official expenses for leaders,” the same monthly total then-Majority Leader Steny Hoyer received.  But Boehner now receives a monthly $2,083.33 direct payment for expenses, according to the most recent expenditure reports from the Clerk of the House.

Christian continues

Steny Hoyer, Nancy Pelosi, James Clyburn, and Eric Cantor all forgo their expense account benefits according to records maintained by the Clerk of the House.

Look let’s face it- the guy is all talk and tears and the only person he cares about isn’t his constituents or the American taxpayer, it’s himself.  He’s just another greedy chain smoking self absorbed politician.  Nothing more.  So as despicable as his behavior is, it’s to be expected.  He is, after all, totally depraved.

The Republicans Unveil Their Plan For the Next Two Years: Whining

BoehnerStimulus

It’s good to see that in spite of the Country’s utter contempt for Congress and the political malaise that wretched and damned den of filth and depravity spews forth, the Republicans will continue implementing their plan of whining about Obama and everything he does (surprise, surprise, just like they’ve been doing for the past two years).

That is, the Republicans aren’t going to lead- they’re going to whine.  They aren’t going to act- they’re going to do what they’ve done the last two years- snivel.

Victorious at the polls, congressional Republicans asserted their newfound political strength on Thursday, vowing to seek a quick $100 billion in federal spending cuts and force repeated votes on the repeal of President Barack Obama’s prized health care overhaul.

In other words their plan is to go backwards. Yippee. Maybe if they are very successful we can return to the heady days of 2007-08 and relive the brink of another great depression. And this time we can call it the super awesome depression.

Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, in line to become the new speaker of the House, brushed aside talk that the No. 1 GOP goal was to make sure Obama is defeated at the polls in 2012. “That’s Senator McConnell’s statement and his opinion,” he told ABC, referring to the party’s leader in the Senate and adding that his own goals included cutting spending and creating jobs.

My number one goal is to see people who need jobs get jobs and see the people on Wall Street who got us into this mess because of their greed go to prison along with all the elected officials who voted to bail them out. That’s my number one goal. That, and world peace.
