LIBERAL “REPUBLICAN” TO VACATE LEADERSHIP POST AT THE END OF OCTOBER
|| By FITSNEWS || John Boehner – a fiscal liberal and serial accommodator of U.S. president Barack Obama – will resign his position as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives at the end of October, according to The New York Times.
“Boehner made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning,” Times’ scribe Jennifer Steinhauer reported.
Wait … Boehner cried? Again? LOLz.
This website has repeatedly rebuked Boehner as a good-for-nothing drunk who has done nothing but roll over for Obama from the day “Republicans” retook the House in 2011. The debt ceiling debate? He caved. The fiscal cliff? He caved. Obamacare defunding? He caved. Obama’s executive amnesty? Again … he caved.
All while his “Republicans” continued the profligate spending that has our national debt approaching the $18.5 trillion mark.
Astoundingly, one of the Speaker’s aides told Politico reporter Jake Sherman that Boehner was “proud of what this majority has accomplished.”
We’re sure Obama is proud of what they’ve accomplished, too …
Earlier this year, we called on the Palmetto State’s “conservative” GOP congressional delegation to vote against Boehner, calling it a “gut check” vote. Unfortunately only one of them – U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan – did so.
Earlier this year, U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows launched an effort to boot Boehner, although he received no support from his fellow “Republicans.”
Boehner’s resignation comes amid the latest shutdown drama in the nation’s capital – in which GOP lawmakers are threatening to shut down the government (well, 17 percent of it) unless Democrats agree to defund taxpayer-subsidized abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
