John Boehner ‘I have learned to deal with jackasses’


This is what good old John thinks of Conservatives. Anyone think that the so-called Immigration Reform bill is not coming our way? Now the purge begins of his enemies.

September 19, 2014.

House Republicans are quietly discussing a proposal that could fundamentally alter the way future speakers of the House are chosen, according to multiple GOP sources, with the objective of avoiding a repeat of John Boehner’s embarrassing reelection vote in 2013.

The rule tweak began as an informal discussion but has morphed into a concrete proposal that is beginning to circulate in the House. According to people briefed on it, any Republican who votes on the House floor in January against the conference’s nominee for House speaker—that is, the candidate chosen by a majority of the House GOP during its closed-door leadership elections in November—would be severely punished. Specifically, sources say, any dissenters would be stripped of all committee assignments for that Congress.
“There’s a real concern that there’s between 30 and 40 people that would vote against the speaker on the House floor, so they’re trying to change the conference rules to make sure that doesn’t happen,” said a GOP member familiar with the proposal.

Boehner: ‘I have learned to deal with jackasses’

Every skill he needs to do his current job he learned working in his dad’s bar, House speaker John Boehner told Jay Leno on Thursday night. Chief among them: “You have to learn to deal with every jacka** that walks in the door.”

That requires the speaker, at times, to be the “big-brother figure,” at others, “the father figure” or “the dean of students or the principal.” “Some of them I have to be the Gestapo,” he said.

Boehner described his job as “trying to get 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow long enough to pass a bill.” Nonetheless, he said he welcomes the diversity of his caucus and praised the Tea Barty for bringing “great energy to the political process.” (Laugh line here) More at National Review

House

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) drew sharp criticism Friday for poking fun at Republicans who oppose recent efforts to tackle immigration reform.

“Here’s the attitude. Ohhhh! Don’t make me do this. Ohhhh! This is too hard,” Boehner said theatrically, wincing and pulling a funny face during a speech Thursday at the Middletown Rotary Club in Ohio.Here is a refresher Mr. Boehner.

“Boehner doesn’t seem very concerned about trying to win over Republican detractors who are aiming to unseat him,” the report said. “Since October, when conservatives forced an unpopular partial shutdown of the federal government, he’s stopped disguising his disdain for Tea Party groups and their tactics, calculating that enough other Republicans are fed up, too.”

House Speaker John Boehner mocked his colleagues for not tackling immigration reform during a rotary club meeting.

    Boehner realizes how bad the radical right has been for the GOP, and if that radical right isn’t reined in the GOP will be a permanent regional minority very soon. Unlike your heroes on the far right, Boehner is not an idiot.

    I forgot about this clip, thanks for reminding me! It looks like the fix is in for future votes on House Speaker, is there any doubt at this point that there is a ruling class and a ruled class?

    His grandmother Nancy must be rather proud of him. While she had to lift her skirt he merely needs to open his fly.

    He even talks like the fraud prez: using that ‘speak … hesitate’ technique, while looking down – like in concern, but is really just a signifying a lie. Here’s a comic of him needing a spine, but I think it’s deeper than that. These empty suits have no conscience or godly fiber, rather the opposite. http://townhall.com/political-cartoons/2015/01/07/126537 He’s in bed w/ this enemy administration.
