If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem!

Boehner is DEFINITELY part of the problem!

No he's not.  He gave the Cruzites the rope they hung themselves with.  EVERYONE with a brain predicted the shutdown wouldn't work, and it didn't.

The good news?  No more shutdowns.  Even Cruz has tempered his language.  Mike Lee has moved on from confrontations that will surely fail.

Things are better.  We know what won't work.  Let's try some things that will.

What will, sink?

The courts? King John changed the law to fit his purposes.

The elections? Obama got re-elected.

The a-word? LBJ crippled this country the last time that was tried.

Secession? Impossible.

Nothing has worked. Might as well try something that actually has a mechanism.

What works is winning the Senate, and then the White House.   A party cannot govern from one House of Congress.

Even with the Obamacare abomination, Republican numbers are still in the toilet.  It was totally unnecessary and totally ineffective.

Let's assume you're correct, (since we know that you always do so).

A good politician, a statesman, will talk around the point. Perhaps give ground without burying his own party. Unless it is his intention to do exactly what you accuse the Tea Party types of doing, purify the party.

Could it be that the establishment GOP has lifted a page from the Democrats and now will accuse conservatives of doing exactly what the GOP is doing?

You know what works. Finding someone who is Democrat-lite and uniting behind them. Then we can all sing kumbaya as the Republicans govern like Democrats. But hey, they are on our side, right?! As if that matters.

Maybe we can convince some stalwart like Elizabeth Warren to switch parties and run for the GOP nomination. Then we'd win for sure.

True that.

On the Oceander Loesch program at The Blaze she just had a long interview with the lady running for the Wendy Davis State Senate Seat.  Very interesting interview. I didn't know her district is actually a GOP district and she pretended (for a while) she was a pro-choice Republican before switching parties.  Oceander also noted since she has moved to Texas from MO and lives in the Davis district she has been speaking to people in the area and everyone says "oh, honey we've known all about her for a lonnnnnnnggggggggggg time"    The lady running for her seat also said they are well aware of Battleground Texas and how they are coordinating with Davis and that they have moved into Texas from Colorado after turning Colorado blue......

Maybe so, but going on a talk show and blabbing about it months later means he's just part of the oh-so-predictable GOP circular firing squad.  Does he really think he's doing anything other than damaging the GOP by airing months' old dirty laundry on a late night entertainment show?  Please; he's as stupid as anyone else in the GOP is, and that's saying a lot.

When was the last time a blue-dog democrat went on Leno to voice his displeasure with Obamacare?

By doing this Boehner does demonstrate that he's part of the problem.  He's just as stupid and blind as anyone might accuse Cruz of being.

We need real house leadership, not an establishment hack like Boner.
