The Tragic Self Beclowning of Speaker John Boehner
« on: December 14, 2013, 05:11:11 PM »
Everybody gets it but those who are satisfied with the status quo.

John Boehner is facing a beclowning in the Senate.

Yesterday, Speaker Boehner rammed through the house an ill-conceived, self-defeating budget deal negotiated by Paul Ryan. The he went on to belittle conservative members and groups as “having no credibility” because they criticized the bill without having read it. They hadn’t read it because Boehner moved the bill in the face of his own repeated promise to allow 72 hours for a bill to be examined. He did that because he knew the budget bill was of the “we have to pass the bill to know what’s in it” variety and that were members and activists given 72 hours to examine the bill it would never pass.

While Paul Ryan was sucking up to Patty Murray and lecturing Senator Marco Rubio on “the burden of governing” and Speaker Boehner suffering from tightly wadded panties, someone should have checked with their Senate colleagues to see where they stood....

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Uh, four Republican Senators have said they'll vote for cloture.  One more, and the bill moves to a vote, which will easily pass.

Eric Erickson is ALWAYS wrong.


It's far easier to dupe people than to convince them they have been duped.
