JOHN BOEHNER IS A CONSERVATIVE? — ANSWERING A COMMENT

humor.pngWhen I started to reply to the comment below on SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER IS A CONSERVATIVE?, I decided my reply was sufficiently amusing (because of a certain comedian) that it deserved to be a post.

Here is the comment (from scout).

I’m having trouble following your reasoning here. Why would Boehner’s “conservatism” (whatever that poor abused term means these days) depend on what Democrats do? (from here)

Who is Boehner most interested in accommodating? Conservatives? No. Those mean, money-grubbing Conservatives pressured that poor man and his fellow RINOs into a position they really did not want to take. Instead of blaming Democrats for shoving Obamacare down our throats, brave Boehner blames Conservatives for decision he made. He cannot even assume responsibility for his own choices. Yet he calls himself a Conservative?  If accepting responsibility for our own choices is not a core Conservative value, what is?    🙄

When Conservatives like Senator Ted Cruz asked the House to stand firm and fight Obamacare, why did some Conservatives doubt it would work? We can count votes. I think most of us did not think politicians like Boehner would stand and fight, and eventually the RINOs did cave.

Since Boehner is not a Conservative, I thought he would cave right away. Apparently, he wants to have it both ways. He wants to look like a Conservative, and he wants to blame the “extreme right wing” for his unending string of failures. Thus, Democrats and the corporate mass media praise him. And he’s is still a Conservative?   😆

Boehner reminds me of a certain comedian’s punch line.

If not for the Democrats (the devil),  he, Boehner, would be a responsible Conservative (an angelic Republican).  As it is, just like a Democrat Boehner gets to spend all the money he wants. The only difference is that he doesn’t vote for tax increases, just deficits.

Perhaps Boehner’s devil is a Democrat with a jobs program for Conservatives. After all, somebody has to pay all his bills.   😆

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER IS A CONSERVATIVE?

Listen to this little video. H/T to Video: John Boehner Says Right Wing Has “Lost All Credibility” (www.bluevirginia.us)

Here is an example of what those terrible Conservatives said about the deal.

Heritage Action cannot support a budget deal that would increase spending in the near-term for promises of woefully inadequate long-term reductions. While imperfect, the sequester has proven to be an effective tool in forcing Congress to reduce discretionary spending, and a gimmicky, spend-now-cut-later deal will take our nation in the wrong direction. (from here)

Nobody may have “seen” the deal, but Congressmen Paul Ryan and Senator Patty Murray have not kept the deal a big secret. Here are some stories that came out before the announcement.

Note what the LA Times called the objective, preventing a shutdown of our sacred, happily spending every cent it can take from us government.

Consider also who is praising Boehner these days.

For Boehner to be a Conservative, the Democratic Party:

  • Would have to be far less Liberal.
  • Give up on Socialism.
  • Be more interested in reducing government power.
  • Lead by politicians who don’t routinely tell blatant lies.
