Call him whatever you'd like, but Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives, elected to that position by the Republican-controlled House. And, from Thomas Sowell today:

"Is the Boehner legislation the best legislation possible? Of course not! You don't get your heart's desire when you control only one house of Congress and face a presidential veto."

The most basic fact of life is that we can make our choices only among the alternatives actually available. It is not idealism to ignore the limits of one's power. Nor is it selling out one's principles to recognize those limits at a given time and place, and get the best deal possible under those conditions."

Shirley: Thanks for pointing out the proper spelling of Boehner, and proper use of RINO. Contextually, Boehner is a RINO.

This August 2nd deadline is totally fabricated , and so is the entilement scare ,it is called fear mongering. Wake up and realize you all are being duped with a crisis that is invented. Time to suck it up and make government live within the same means we live within.


If the House passes a Balanced Budget Amendment, does it have ANY chance of passing before August 2? No. All of the insistence on a BBA is dumb. We need to replace President Obama and a few Senators before we can make meaningful reform. Compromise, for now, is the answer. Read this:


Shirley, I am a Tea Party type and in no way delusional. Why in the hell do you want to live in debt? You love Obama that much? He won't quit until we are dead broke and selling apples on the street corner...........Wise up Shirley.........


You mean the reader who got this info from the Greeley Tribune? And, it's Boehner, not Baynor. Also, its RINOs', not RINO's when plural possessive.

Anyway, those protesters are more delusional than the Tea Party-types who want no deal if it doesn't include a Balanced Budget Amendment. Just slightly more delusional, but more.
