Mick Mulvaney Supporting John Boehner?

|| By FITSNEWS || When the effort to oust U.S. Speaker John Boehner was falling apart in 2013, U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney didn’t flinch.  Other “conservative” members of the U.S. House bailed on their commitments to vote against the fiscally liberal “Republican” leader, but Mulvaney was good to his word and did not cast his vote for the Speaker.

Such a stand was consistent with Mulvaney’s pro-free market, “damn the torpedoes” approach to politics – which this website has long admired (and consistently praised).

That’s why it was so disheartening to see Mulvaney’s name listed as a supporter of Boehner on a “whip count” prepared by The Washington Post in advance of this week’s U.S. House leadership elections.

Say it ain’t so, Mick … tell us that’s a misprint.

As this piece from our friend Rick Manning makes clear, GOP voters have had enough of Boehner – and with good reason.  The Speaker’s entire raison d’être since assuming his post in 2011 has been the accommodation of the uber-leftist agenda of Barack Obama.  And the perpetuation of establishment “Republican” policies.

Can anyone recall a principled stand Boehner has taken?  On anything?


“We’ve never had much use for Boehner, who has been utterly worthless except in two areas: Capitulating … and getting drunk,” we wrote last week in an article attempting to forecast how the so-called “conservative” South Carolina delegation might vote on Boehner’s renomination.

Seriously.  Name the issue … and Boehner has caved on it.  Embarrassingly so.

How can Mulvaney support a guy like this?  Especially after Boehner was instrumental in making sure the South Carolina lawmaker wasn’t elected to head up a group of ostensibly conservative “Republican” members of Congress?

We don’t get it …

We knew liberal South Carolina “Republicans” Tom Rice and Joe Wilson would be Boehner backers, but we had high hopes the rest of the state’s delegation would oppose his renomination as the GOP leader.

Guess those hopes were misplaced …

FITS gets one right. (although I’m suspicious.)

I don’t think these politicians have any idea at how infuriated the people are w/ Boehner and his aiding and abetting of Obama.

We ROSE en masse on Nov. 4 against the deconstruction of America. But Boehner told us to GET F*#ked in his service to Obama.

We have no country if there is not STAUNCH opposition to Obama and the damage the Democrat Party has done to us…

Allegiance to Boehner (and Obama) at this CRITICAL moment will not be forgotten or forgiven…

How’s that RINO horn feeling there big Tango wango? Better get ya some more KY – cause with KY Mitch in there – it’s gonna be a double horn enema. Tango got taken by the RINOs.
But, but, but we won the midterms.
You stupid ignorant moron – the Establishment and the Bush family won the midterms. The RINOs and Obama won the midterms. You didn’t win crap. You’re gonna get it up the Yazzo Pipe for two years as they RINOs pass it all for Obama. Increased spending, immigration reform, amnesty, Cuba, Iran, expanded NSA wire-taps, attacks on Haley and Governor Deal in Georgia – attacks on Tea Party representatives. You’re so screwed and you don’t even know it. The RINOs will make sure Obama goes down in history as one of the greatest Presidents ever.
But, but, but we won the midterms. You crack me up. Idiot!!!

Big T with a “double horn enema”. Now THAT is funny. Though I think a double horn douche is more appropriate.

johnq January 5, 2015 at 12:19 pm

As long as it pisses off Big T we can rest assured that it is the right thing to do.

I love Obama just because he pisses off Big T.

Thanks Obama!

I’m glad you voted like a F*#king idiot – as FITS told you to – on Nov. 4, too. It just makes you a LOSER…LMAO…

Enjoying those low gas prices? Care to credit Obama for them? Or are you just now going to admit the President has nothing to do with gas prices, while it’s politically convenient for you?

GrandTango January 5, 2015 at 1:23 pm

Obama’s gas price is STILL higher than the average of gas under Bush’s first six years. I want my F*#king REFUND for ALL the Money you B*$t@rD$ stole for SIX years…you F*#king Idiot…

And that goes double for the utility increase because you’ve shut down coal. And what about the Medical costs and worthless insurance that costs $3,500 a year, for nothing, now???

Not to mention all the jobs that got turned from FT to PT…..You have been a F*#king MISERABLE Disaster.

Rocky January 5, 2015 at 1:33 pm

What are you – retarded? I just saw $1.94 near Goose Creek stupid. I don’t recall it being anything like that when W was Prezidente except for like 2002 and 2003 when we were still enjoying the remaining parts of the Clinton economy. Dumb idiot. You’re such as lemming. Can’t even think or see for yourself. Please do us all a favor and lock yourself in your Cayce trailer and stay there.

GrandTango January 5, 2015 at 1:44 pm

“I don’t recall”…

That’s your F*#king problem. Your a brainless Idiot, who cannot remember past your last welfare check.

America is in a FUNK right now. You have F*#ked up our economy. And it will not get better until liberals get their @$$ kicked out of power…and we take our country back…

Rocky January 5, 2015 at 2:46 pm

It’s only Funky in SC right now. Everyone else is in an expansion. Guess you didn’t know about that – idiot. Take your country back. We have assumed control because the American people reject morons like you. Why don’t you just take your trailer and move to Alaska where you can continue to nurse off the government teet.

GrandTango January 5, 2015 at 3:02 pm

Then why did you get your @$$ kicked on the last election day???

Rocky January 5, 2015 at 3:05 pm

We were too busy working that day. Duh!

Saluda Rapids January 5, 2015 at 4:26 pm

Nostradumass has selective amnesia. He keeps repeating Nov. 4 like a retarded parrot, but when Obama was literally on the ballot, HE got his @$$ kicked in both 2008 and 2012.

Rocky January 5, 2015 at 2:51 pm

Hey bird brain – as of today Rasmussen has Obama at 51% approval rating, and Obamacare at 46% approval. Guess the American people can see what you cannot. Idiot.

GrandTango January 5, 2015 at 3:01 pm

What was he on Nov. 4…you dumb@$$???

Fortunately, another failed Obama policy. Obama wants higher gas prices as an incentive against fossil fuel use.

Bill January 5, 2015 at 11:23 am

Mick called up some Koch Brother’s organization and asked them how he is supposed to vote. Mick is a taker. How much he can take is all that he needs to know. Gubment Check, Gubment Health Care, Gubment Retirement, all while sitting on his ass doing nothing. If he can up that by doing what he is told, that is fine with him.

Gohmert would be a much better choice comedy wise. The stupid is strong with this one.

He is a very strong, unwavering supporter of tanning beds.

Republicans get elected by spewing a bunch of rhetoric that Grand Tango types eat up, then they get to Washington and slowly begin to realize how wrong/stupid their rhetoric was. They start to put some logic into their voting, at which point they begin the RINO evolution.

RHood2 January 5, 2015 at 4:12 pm

Well, who is running against Boehner. Louis Gohmert. I would vote for Satan before that moron.
