The party has done little to fulfill their campaign promises to reverse Obama’s lawless activities, so why not change the party leadership in Congress. It can’t get much worse than it is now.
King upset at Boehner’s ouster …
Perhaps Peter King (R-NY) should consider that his party asked the voters for a majority in the House of Representative for the sole purpose of starting to reform a dysfunctional administration that lawlessly ignored the constitution and put forth toxic legislation … and did nothing while complaining that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blocked their actions.
The party once again went to the voters and asked for a majority in the Senate … and when that was granted, did nothing that remotely resembled the campaign promises that were made. Continuing to avoid putting substantive bills on Obama’s desk to force him and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats in Congress to take a hard stand that could be used against them in the upcoming 2016 election cycle.
The party’s leadership (Representative Boehner and Senator Mitch McConnell) was and is feckless and ineffective and needs to be changed …
So, Peter the Putz now sees House Majority leader Boehner’s resignation and retirement as a sign that the “crazies” have taken over the party. Perhaps if King was intellectually honest, he would see Boehner’s cut and run as taking the coward’s way out of an important constitutional fight -- and moving toward a cushy career filled with speaking engagements, lobbying activities, and most of all a relaxed workweek where he could live the country club life of golfing and drinking. Not that the duties of Boehner’s office kept him from being a scratch golfer and a cocktail aficionado.
Peter King: Boehner exit means 'the crazies have taken over the party'
House Speaker John Boehner's sudden resignation Friday "signals that the crazies have taken over the party," New York Republican Peter King said Friday.
“I think it signals the crazies have taken over the party, taken over to the party that you can remove a speaker of the House who’s second in line to be president, a constitutional officer in the middle of his term with no allegations of impropriety, a person who’s honest and doing his job. This has never happened before in our country," King said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash on Friday afternoon. "He could have stayed on.”
Bottom line …
If Peter the Putz is not part of the solution, he must be part of the problem or a loud-mouthed bystander. It is time the party and our representatives fear the people, not the other way around. It is time for Members of Congress to uphold, protect, and defend our constitution from the progressive socialist democrats who regard it as an unnecessary impediment on the road to international socialism/communism.
Peter – put up or shut up.
With representatives likes these, we are so screwed.
