Boehner: Obama Wants To ‘Annihilate’ The GOP

Boehner: Obama Wants To ‘Annihilate’ The GOP

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) circled the wagons on Tuesday, one day after President Obama's second inauguration, in an attempt to reassure his fellow Republicans that he would do everything in his power to challenge a "hostile" Obama administration in budget battles yet to come.

"So we’re expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this Administration as they attempt to annihilate the Republican Party," Boehner said at a private Ripon Society luncheon, a Republican think tank in Washington. His comments were released on Wendesday.

"And let me just tell you, I do believe that is their goal – to just shove us into the dustbin of history," Boehner added. "I’ve been in these spots before. I remember November of ’06, January of ’07 -- we’ve been through these periods before. And you know, our Members get down, our supporters get down.”

Alluding to a costly debt ceiling battle that some members have pushed for, Boehner reiterated the need for temperance on behalf of more eager elements of his party, arguing that Republicans must choose wisely which battlefield they meet Obama on in the coming months.

Dear Republicans, you're doing it to yourselves, and the President is simply letting you.

After another drink and smoke break, of course. And maybe a round of golf.

9. "shove us into the dustbin of history"

You dumbasses dug yourselves so deep for the past 4 years that you're down near the mantle of the earth of history now. The dustbin stage happened when McLame and Caribou Barbie lost.

If any group of people deserve to be put down, it would be every GOP neocon, teabagging, corporate-whore, capitalist slop bucket pos in existence.

They are ALWAYS accusing others of what they themselves are doing. They are annihilating themselves! So funny and yet sadly predictable.

17. It's Called Being Held Accountable...

The favorables of the rushpublicans in the House are less than people who like botulism. Boner knows he has a dysfunctional poor excuse for a party and already has the excuses laid out. Gerrymander can only help for so long as the pressure on blue and purple state congresscritters will grow as more light is put on these losers. Today's sad demonstration in the Benghazi hearings show how disconnected his party is from reality and the electorate. Thus instead of confronting problems head on and governing (which rushpublicans have no clue on how to do) it's more rhetoric and attempts to obstruct.
