If there was any doubt that Speaker of the House John Boehner has been in office too long, and has moved from the right to the left, the following quote should put it to bed. After he barely survived being reelected to the Speakership, he said:
“We are sent here not to be something, but to do something.”
This is classic leftist rhetoric. It sounds good, but upon analysis, it falls apart. “We are sent here not to be something.” What? The importance of whom and what you are cannot be understated, for it has a direct impact on the “something” that you do. I would go a step further and say that it has an impact everything you do. We send our representatives to Washington to BE honorable & industrious. Any district represented by someone who is not both has a serious problem. So yes, Speaker Out-of-Touch, we do send our representatives to Washington to “be something.”
Speaker Boehner goes on to tell us the something they are sent there to do is “the right thing.” But if he doesn’t understand the import of “being something,” his ability to discern the right thing from the wrong thing is damaged, which has been clearly on display of late. The “something” he undoubtedly is referring to is resume-enhancing deals & bargains with the enemy. (Like I said, he’s out of touch.)
At this point, many of you are thinking, “But our government was built to run on compromise. If we don’t ever compromise, nothing will ever get done.” Let me make myself perfectly clear: People who are not suicidal will wisely compromise with others who share similar goals, but disagree on how to attain them. They do not compromise with other people whose goal is their complete destruction. If the entity you are compromising with does not believe that you have a right to exist, there can be no compromise. Believe me when I say that the modern Democrat Party, and their RINO brothers and sisters, want to annihilate our Constitution, culture, heritage, and liberties. The only difference in the two groups is that the former is in a hurry, and the latter wants to go slowly. Given the amount of power the Democrats hold today, nothing getting done sounds pretty good. In fact, it’s probably the best we can hope for.
John Boehner is the poster boy for what is wrong with the Republican establishment. Unlike the left, he doesn’t hate America, but he loves himself more. We need representatives who love their country right after God and their families, instead of country coming after their portfolios and egos. Boehner is dead weight, and should be sent back to Ohio for good.
