Boehner Growing A Backbone? Eh, Not Likely….

Bout time he gets pissed off:

“he has been President for five and half years, when’s he going to take some responsibility for something?”

I like Allah’s answer to Boehner’s question:

“Next month, if we get another good jobs report.”

Then there’s this:

House Speaker John Boehner outlined his strategy Thursday for pursuing a lawsuit against President Obama, saying the case will focus on the president’s “unilateral” changes to the health care law’s so-called employer mandate.

Until now, the speaker had not made clear which executive actions his proposed congressional lawsuit would challenge.

His office, releasing a draft resolution authorizing the suit, revealed Thursday that the crux of the case will be the Obama administration’s decision in 2013 to delay the requirement on certain employers to provide health coverage to workers.

“In 2013, the president changed the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it.That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work. No president should have the power to make laws on his or her own,” Boehner said in a statement.

He added: “If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well.The House has an obligation to stand up for the Legislative Branch, and the Constitution, and that is exactly what we will do.”

Is this guy finally starting to grow a backbone? I’ve asked that question more than once over the last few years and each time I’ve been disappointed.

Don’t think that’s going to change but we shall see.

    No.
    Of course not.
    Slugs and slime molds cannot grow backbones. Neither can Bonior.
    Wait until he hears from his donors.
    He will back off in a hurry.
    He will not act. He just wants to hold on to his position. He has no values and no ethics.
    He is a corrupt, sleazy, vote-buying, cheating, lying fraud.
    The lawsuit will come to nothing. He doesn’t really care about US.
    He cares about Big John.

    Boehner is as impotent as they come and really isn’t much different from most Republicans in Congress…What few do have a backbone can’t get past the status quo representatives like Boehner….If you’re a conservative yet you vote for representatives like Boehner merely because they carry the R, you’re not doing any of us any favors…

    Defunding is the real solution here. Cut money to IRS, State etc. maybe that would get attention. As far as Boehner and a backbone, I will believe it when it happens.

    The lawsuit is a joke. When that slithers to nothing, the Fascist in chief will be more emboldened. ” See, Republicans, is that all you got!”

    Don’t make me laugh.
    That rant and that lawsuit are just so Crying John can make it LOOK like he’s growing a backbone pair. For the benefit of us Tea Party yahoos.
