John Boehner Tweets GOP Jobs Plan. Naturally, It’s Completely Blank

We all remember when John Boehner took over as House Speaker with Tea Party support and declared that jobs would be priority one. We also remember that that promise was never a priority immediately after taking the gavel so tweeting out a blank jobs plan comes as no shock but it’s funny nevertheless. House Speaker [...]

On Thursday night, President Obama gave a speech at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala that was interrupted by an activist who heckled the President, and later, by a smattering of boos at the mere mention of Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio). The speech, about half of which centered on immigration reform, was [...]

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) hit upon a popular Republican theme when he told a crowd at a conservative think tank that unemployed Americans just don’t want to work, and would rather “just sit around.” Fittingly, it was in response to a question about Paul Ryan’s so-called poverty plan, because it was Ryan [...]

Republicans are contorting to find a way to save John Boehner from embarrassment . The National Journal reports: Under the proposed tweak, 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 [...]

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) released a statement, following President Obama’s ISIS speech, in which he mixed backhanded praise (“finally,” Obama!) with nebulous criticism  (the President’s plan is not an “all-out effort to destroy” ISIS) that didn’t explain what he thought should be done differently. Boehner held a press conference Thursday afternoon to [...]

John Boehner has decided that Barack Obama gave a meaningless speech. “An effective speech is not the same thing as an effective strategy,” he said. “While the president presented a compelling case for action, many questions remain about the way in which the president intends to act.” In the short term, Boehner asked whether Obama’s [...]

This actually makes John Boehner likeable. He says he’s like a windup monkey toy. “Every 15 or 20 minutes they come in and wind me up and I do my thing.” [su_sky_ad] Now read this:Boehner: Impeachment A ‘Scam’ Started By Democrats (Jul 29, 2014) Boehner’s Lawyer Penned a Great Argument Against His Lawsuit (Jul 18, [...]

Oh, Barack Hussein Obama, do you never tire of Breaking Politics™? The Boogaloo Shrimp of Washington, DC was at it again this week, ruining any chance of bipartisan cooperation by sending an email that made Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) so mad, he couldn’t reply for fear of what he might say. Boehner [...]

While Congress is off playing on its five-week recess, President Obama will do what John Boehner told him to do: take executive action on immigration. Obama and his allies believe his authority to act without legislative approval has been strengthened by congressional gridlock over comprehensive reform. “I’ve heard not to expect anything until toward the [...]

They’re off for five weeks, so nothing will get done. Oh wait…how will we be able to tell the difference? The problem isn’t Republicans versus Democrats. It’s Republicans versus Republicans. The 113th Congress this week took another step toward ignominy as one of the least productive, most divided in history. Vocal Republicans were empowered, virtually [...]
