John Boehner’s position as speaker of the House is coming up for a vote soon. The Republicans should vote him and the rest of the House leaders out.
Boehner has never been much of a leader, often compromising when he should have stood tall, making false promises like saying he is going to sue the president then not following through.
The biggest reason to oust Boehner as the House speaker, though, is the passage of the “Cromnibus” bill, which Boehner got passed by allying himself with Nancy Pelosi and President Obama, shutting conservatives out despite the November election results.
There are other reasons to give Boehner the bum’s rush, too, not the least of them the current scandal surrounding Majority Whip Steve Scalise. The mere fact of giving a speech in front of some group should not be enough to lead to someone’s firing. However, as more details have come out, it seems that Scalise has had more than a passing entanglement with the KKK.
Then there’s the fact that David Duke, the KKK’s version of Darth Sidius, has threatened to “name names” if the GOP doesn’t stand by Scalise. The implied involvement of the KKK in the Republican leadership should be setting off alarm bells among conservatives. The GOP is the party of Lincoln. The KKK belongs back in its party of origin, the Democratic Party, with its other ethnic caucuses.
Because of Boehner’s betrayal with the “Cromnibus,” the November election results that catapulted conservatives into the House have been effectively nullified.
Getting rid of Boehner would be one way to take back the mandate from liberals, and purging the leadership of people who have ties to groups like the KKK would restore conservatism as the driving force in the Republican Party.
It’s doable. Fewer than 30 conservatives voting against Boehner could turn the tide.
It’s also necessary.
We are in a constitutional crisis, brought about by President Obama’s imperial actions on amnesty and other issues in which he has gone around Congress and used executive actions to essentially pass and enact legislation on his own authority.
The next few weeks and months will be crucial for determining whether we remain a constitutional republic or become in fact some form of monarchy. Replacing Boehner could make all the difference.
