The Meltdown Gets Ugly as Conservatives ATTEMPT A COUP To Overthrow Boehner






The #FireBoehner hashtag really took off last night on Twitter. No, it wasn’t started by evil liberals – it was the conservatives at American Majority Action (AMA) who started it. The gang smelled blood and the sharks are circling. The Daily Caller was promoting their version of online activism to “dispose” Boehner of his speakership. They’re mad at a “secret list” they think Boehner used to purge several “real conservatives” from House committees. Republican Reps. David Schweikert, Justin Amash and Tim Huelskamp come up often in these circles, with Freedom Works urging members to call Boehner’s office in order to instruct him to stop kicking real conservatives, such as the above three, from committees.



Conservatives suspect that Speaker Boehner (R-OH) was behind The Republican Steering Committee (Boehner chairs it) voting to remove Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) from the House Budget Committee. Who is going to tell these angry conservatives that it is reasonable to assume that Amash and Huelskamp were kicked off at the request or at least mention of Paul Ryan (R-WI), their hero at large? Ryan was after all kept on by the very same Steering Committee as budget chairman, in spite of his inability to do math on the campaign trail.



See, Amash and Huelskamp voted against Paul Ryan’s budget because it did not cut spending enough. Yes, that budget — the one the nuns protested for immorally cutting funding to needy Americans. These two are quite literally destroying the Republican Party’s image (as if that was hard to do at this point). Party leadership must feel they had to be cut off from having the ability to obstruct the GOP from making deals they need to make in order to spare their reputation more damage (read: fiscal cliff deal). No doubt Boehner agrees that these guys have to go if the Republican Party is going to have a fighting chance of not taking the total blame for yet another fiscal cliff/debt ceiling debacle. Boehner is not stupid. He has been, however, ineffective as a Speaker, but he’s also been placed in a horrible position by the Tea Party and he waited too long to grab the reins. He knows his career is on the line, and that’s why he’s threatening panel assignments and reminding his party that leadership is watching their votes.
http://thehill.com/homenews/house/271173-boehner-members-punished-for-their-votes



In typical Republican fashion, the Party let the losers learn about their ouster the hard way – with the public, on the Internet from the media. Not cool, but this is the Republican Party. Authoritarianism is all fun and games until you’re on the wrong side of it. So the conservatives’ plan is to get 16 Republicans to refuse to vote for Boehner for Speaker in the new session, so that they can get “real conservative” ideas passed. Now, by real conservative ideas, we are not talking Paul Ryan crazy, but rather worse than Paul Ryan. Believe it.

1. I Love Them Circular Firing Squads...

Someone forgot to tell these douchenozzles this is 2012, not 2010 and the political pendulum is swinging further and further away from them. The obstructionist game cost them the chance to take the Senate and their radical agenda scares the shit out of anyone who isn't white and elderly. The message will need to be delivered again in 2014 and again in 2016...and I'm still not certain these asshats would finally figure out how out of step they are with a majority of voting Americans.

Boner is their best hope here...if we go "off the cliff" the hit will be hardest on the rushpublicans (why I don't mind seeing it happen)...taxes raised on the rich and spending cuts to their beloved defense contractors and other corporate welfare recipiants. So here's the deal...be stubborn and walk off the cliff or work something now and spend the next two years making people forget about it. They're sure not gonna get a better deal with Louis Gommert doing the negotiating.

43. I'll just add to the chorus.

I am white but I'm not exactly elderly, but I can tell you that there are most definitely white elderly people who are frightened by their agenda. It isn't about age, it's about information. There are low information voters of all ages. Do you think most of the Ayn Rand worshipers you see on the web are elderly? Do you think it's mostly elderly people who spam comments sections with inane right wing comments? A lot of the elderly people I know don't even have computers. Unfortunately, there are a lot of young people who support this radical agenda.

50. Unfortunately....

there are a lot of young white conservatives enamored with Ayn Rand and "rugged individualism". There is a really depressing statistic that Obama did not win the white youth (under 30) vote this time around as he did in 2008. It's too easy to just blame old white people and traditional older religious conservatives.

Young people may be more tolerant than their elders when it comes to LGBT issues and individual rights, but they are much less interested in community. A lot of these young people aren't interested in going to church even if they consider themselves religious. I'm agnostic, but as much as I get down on the older religious right for their stances on various issues, the younger less religious conservatives I find much more depressing. Unlike their parents, Gen-Y and Gen-X conservatives don't seem to value collective responsibility at all. It seems not caring about the less fortunate has become cool or something. "The individual" and "independence" is all that matters to them. It's even more painful that a lot of these people have found that they can't be financially independent in this economy but seem too proud to admit that the problem is systemic. They want to believe they will prosper if government would just get out of the way. It's not just "low information". It's a type of cultural narcissism. These people just don't "get it". We'd have to go through something like another 1930s style Great Depression for these people to actually wake the hell up.

I'm really lament in my own generation these days.

52. Re: GenX and GenY

There is a reason GenX'ers rejected collective responsibility. The boomers' greed (during the Reagan era) created a situation where GenX'ers knew that things like Social Security would very likely not be there for them, when they got old. As a GenX'er myself, that was a big topic of discussion among my peers when I was in my 20's. This fear prodded them into feeling that their only hope for the future was to take care of themselves--because nobody else would.

Given our present discussions in Congress, I still fear that Social Security and Medicare won't be around by the time I'm old. Or if it is, it might be privatized, cut to the bone, or the age raised to the point where I'll be in poverty because I'm too old to work (I have major health issues) but too young to get benefits.

So it's no surprise that many GenX'ers developed an "every man for himself" attitude--there's nothing quite like fear and anger to kill compassion.

Yet we were the first truly diverse generation, in terms of minorities, backgrounds, etc. We can't all be lumped into a category as conveniently as other generations, as a result.

It's not fair to say that GenX'ers don't care about community. We do, but when we do charitable acts, we just don't trumpet them the way that Boomers or Millennials do. There are only 2 traits that GenX'ers have in common: Diversity and a contempt of making a big deal about what we do. We're the "just do it" generation. The media tried to make a big deal about GenX coming of age, but when they saw how boring we were, they gave up, LOL.

As for GenY...yes, there may be conservatives among them, but young people are one of the groups that support Obama most. So what if angry white boys didn't vote for Obama? Angry white boys are racist--what do you expect?

Judging young people by those idiots is like judging America by the posts at Freak Republic.

So far Boner and the other Republicans have pretty much given in to the Teabag section of their party. The moderates may not know it but this is a shot across the bow. Teabags have just declared a formal war on the moderates.

I can't wait to see what happens next!

Fortunately, someone called my on my free Obama-phone, letting me know it was in there. I'm so glad I answered it, but I almost didn't ... I thought it was someone from the temporary agency that I filled out an application with 22 months ago, calling to tell me they found someone that needed someone with a B.A. in Comparative Medieval Poetic Philosophy, that I got from the University of Phoenix for the low, low price of $250,000 - but it's cool, I got a guaranteed loan. Phew, dodged a bullet there.

47. The trouble is, it's not a hole but a death spiral

According to Public Policy Polling, "Our final poll before the election, which hit the final outcome almost on the head, found 39% of voters identifying themselves as Democrats and 37% as Republicans. Since the election we've seen a 5 point increase in Democratic identification to 44%, and a 5 point decrease in Republican identification to 32%."
http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2012/12/republicans-not-handling-election-results-well.html

The smaller the GOP gets, the more it will be dominated by the Tea Partiers and the religious right. And the more dominated it is by the TP and the RR, the smaller it gets. Hence, death spiral.

But the dangerous part is that we have a two party system. The GOP retains official parity with the Democrats no matter how bad it gets. The networks are devoted to false equivalences -- meaning they will either paper over how extreme the GOP is getting or will paint middle-of-the-road Democrats as extremists just to make things come out even. And low information voters, who don't follow politics closely but get an occasional urge to "throw the bums out," will vote a radicalized Republican Party into power somewhere along the line unless the fates intervene.

When Goldwater lost in 1964, we though it was a death blow to extreme conservatism. When Nixon resigned in 1974, we thought the GOP would be in the doghouse for a generation. But the first of those events prompted the right-wing to organize, set up its network of think-tanks and legal foundations, and vow never to compromise with the party establishment. And the second gave them the opening to take over control, leading to the Reagan victory in 1980.

Letting the ultras have control of the party machinery would not be a good outcome from any point of view. And in all seriousness, it may be up to progressives to help save the Republican Party from its own worser angels.

19. What Goes Around, Comes Around: Attempted Republican Coup: Ready, Aim, Misfire


Boehner’s failed coup attempted against Newt Gingrich, when Gingrich was Speaker

In scheming to be rid of House Speaker Gingrich, DeLay and his co-conspirators showed all the talent for intrigue of Peter Sellers in his Pink Panther days. Depending on who's doing the telling, the schemers included one, two or all three of the other House leaders ranked directly below the Speaker--majority leader Dick Armey, G.O.P. conference chairman John Boehner and leadership chairman Bill Paxon--not to mention 20 or more insurgents from the rank and file. Cooked up in secrecy, the coup collapsed before it could begin. The result was a week of backstabbing that left Gingrich weaker yet more entrenched. It could lead, as early as this week, to a complete reshuffling of his leadership team--just as negotiations with the White House on the year's most important legislation enter their critical stage. Says Florida Republican Mark Foley: "It's like a circular firing squad."



One Lousy Week in the Life of Bill Paxon

Thursday, July 10: Help plot a coup; argue about who'll get Newt's job.
Friday. July 11: The coup falls apart. Go see Newt: Nice tie, Mr. Speaker!
Tuesday, July 15: Attend a photo op with Newt. Keep smiling!
Wednesday, July 16: Dodge those pesky reporters. Insist on own innocence.
Thursday, July 17: Resign from the leadership. Watch Newt take revenge.


Tough Days Ahead for His Co-Conspirators?

Tom Delay is not talking. But Newt's targeting him for revenge.

John Boehner says he was a mole among the rebels. Will Newt buy it?

Dick Armey had a change of heart mid-coup. That may save him.

26. WAR DRUMS at Tea Party Nation

Bold emphasis is mine.


There is a hashtag now floating around twitter. It is simple and it is to the point.

John Boehner must go.

He is totally unwilling to fight Barack Obama, but he is quite willing to fight conservatives. His white flag of surrender is out and he is ready to agree to massive tax increases that will only grow the big government state but will also destroy the Republican Party.

So what do we need to do?

I was not the first to come up with this idea but I was one of the first to call for getting rid of John Boehner and warning that he was going to be a disaster for the conservative movement.

On March 1, 2011, I wrote that then out of control actor Charlie Sheen was making more sense than John Boehner. I also called for a primary opponent for Boehner.

The fight today is much simpler than trying to primary John Boehner.

If sixteen Republicans defect and refuse to vote for Boehner as Speaker, he will not have the requisite 218 votes to be reelected.

We need to put pressure on Republican Members of Congress to vote against Boehner for Speaker.

It is safe to say we already have four votes. Those would be from the conservatives removed from Committees. Louie Gohmert, who is one of the heroes in Congress who nominated Newt Gingrich to be Speaker during Party Leadership elections might well be a 5thvote.

32. Doesn't all this GOP Sturm und Drang make you appreciate Pelosi all the more?

What a smart, smart woman Leader Pelosi is! As Speaker, never brought a bill to a vote that she hadn't already whipped enough votes. Advocated and executed bringing more diversity into leadership positions, sponsored and mentored younger members for leadership roles in the future.

60. "activism to “dispose” Boehner of his speakership." This group ain't to smart, rite?

Not only do they use "dispose" instead of "depose," but they haven't figured out yet that getting rid of Boner still won't get them what they want considering there's a Dem admin. and Dem majority in the Senate. Keep doing stooopid stuff, repukes, while your constituents are without jobs, money for college, retirement funds, affordable health care...

65. And they're series too!

The backlash against Speaker of the House John Boehner’s removal of several conservative members of Congress from committees continued Wednesday, with one conservative group calling for Republicans to “depose” Boehner from his speakership.

American Majority Action (AMA) is launching a #FireBoehner campaign. If 16 members of the Republican Party abstain from voting for Boehner as speaker in January, he will be one vote shy of the 218 necessary to confirm his speakership.
