Boehner: Obama Wants To ‘Annihilate’ The GOP

Source: TPM



IGOR BOBIC 3:00 PM EST, WEDNESDAY JANUARY 23, 2013

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.

"These next couple of weeks, next couple of months, frankly, the next 20 months, are going to be a very difficult period for us," Boehner added. "Where’s the ground that we fight on? Where’s the ground that we retreat on? Where are the smart fights? Where are the dumb fights that we have to stay away from? All I know is I’m up for the fight," he affirmed.

House Republican leaders successfully kept their conservative members at bay Wednesday and passed legislation to raise the debt limit through May 18, without any cuts to federal spending. It includes a provision, touted by Republicana as "No budget, no pay," that would withhold senators’ pay if they don’t pass a budget by the April 15 statutory deadline.

They are obsessive transferents.

11. Their problems wouldn't have anything to do with their own deficiencies.

No. Can't be that. Must be because the BIG BAD OBAMA MAN is keeping them down. Couldn't be the fact that their obstructionism has been wildly unpopular. Couldn't be because their whole platform is extremist and wildly unpopular. Couldn't be that they're just too far out of the mainstream. Couldn't be that they're actually alienating people at an alarming rate. Couldn't be because they're out of touch and out of step.

No. None of that accountability crap. They just have to continue to try to demonize the BIG BAD OBAMA MAN. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Cleavon Little was outstanding in the role of the sheriff! This shot is from what is definitely one of the funniest movie scenes of all time ... even when its not so subtle subtext is the tragedy of race relations in the US of A.

But the self-annihilation of today's - and it is exactly that - is not funny at all. If the RW nihilist nutcases would just go off somewhere or fade away quietly, we would all be the better for it. Instead, they are so deluded and delusional that they actually take themselves seriously and try as hard as they can to wreck the whole country with their downright meanness and constant poutrage.

67. I hope Obama succeeds.

 

He will then go down in history alongside Jonas Salk as a hero who wiped out a hideous disease.

How would that be any different than Karl Rove pushing for a "permanent Republican majority" only eight years ago?

72. Sorry Boehner you and your republican cohorts are doing the job yourselves by being

Brought and paid for by your corporate masters and your fox/rush/beck rhetoric. People are getting tired of the division and nastiness coming out of your mouths. We the people want to move forward and not go backwards.

probably does not want to destroy the GOP . But I certainly do. Then we can have a reasonable opposition again from what arises from the dead GOP.

But after their treatment, could you blame him?

78. Now why would a 2nd-term president ever want to annihilate the political party whose job #1 was

to make him a one-term president by obstructing every thing good for the country he tried to do? Imagine that: who woulda' ever thunk it? Hopefully the President will annihilate almost all Republicans standing for re-election in 2014 by making them unelectable forevermore through thoroughly exposing their heinous records in office.

that Republican lawmakers are doing the job quite well without any help from President Obama. They just keep moving farther right after every loss. Most have already gone over the right field fence into the dingbat territory. Keep up the good work John, you make our job easier.

95. Corporatists want Democrats and Republicans to hate each other

and focus on wedge issues that divide us, rather than noticing how the two parties are quietly working together on the most important economic, war, and police state issues.

In most major policy areas, the two parties are in terrifying agreement. It is well past time that Democrats and Republicans stop taking the bait to blindly despise each other and instead open our eyes to actual policy and how we are ALL being sold out by our corporate owners.

We will never have the strength and numbers to stop what is being done to us until we can agree that the real battle is between all of us and the banks and corporations who are now driving policy in both parties.

Our party is now actively complicit with Republicans in advancing the agenda of the one percent:

106. Boner and his party are self destructing

This whole thing is absurd. Obama wants to destroy the GOP? Sorry, but their doing it all themselves. For the "Tan Man" to even suggest the words above, is a sign of weakness in the party and a cry for help. You can put it up there with Obama trying to take our guns. The GOP is a party of fear. The bad part here is the fear is all among themselves, and I love it. Let them self destruct. Let them blame Obama for everything.

There is just no fix for stupid.
