The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…
…is awarded to Dan Riehl, Publisher and Editor-In Chief of Riehl World News, for his surgical excoriation of Cryin’ John Boehner, author of the worst-selling book, I Am Curious Orange [tip of the fedora to Memeorandum]:
The people Boehner has punished were not elected by their constituents to represent John Boehner, his leadership, nor the Republican Party. The Republican Party is not protected by the Constitution. By his actions, Boehner has made himself the tanned poster child of everything that is wrong with Washington. It’s two parties vying for power, the will of the American people be damned!
What does this idiot Boehner hope to do, split the party officially?
The House of Representatives is called the ‘house of the people’ for a reason. It is not the House of John Boehner, or the GOP. By punishing certain members as he has, Boehner may as well be punishing individual citizens for their thoughts, opinions and positions. The bottom line is, Boehner is intellectually not up to the job. Obama will continue to kick his ass around like a dope and he needs to resign. He can’t even handle this internal situation adequately and is simply not up to the job.
The issue of how Congress was to be structured was one of the most divisive among the founders during the Convention. Edmund Randolph’s Virginia Plan called for a bicameral Congress: the lower house would be “of the people,” elected directly by the people of the United States and representing public opinion, and a more deliberative upper house that would represent the individual states, and would be less susceptible to variations of mass sentiment, would be elected by the lower house.
The Speaker’s actions are anti-democratic and un-American. He needs to step down.
Boehner has shown himself to be a dope, a lemming, a Quisling, and a thug [and what's with those weird crying jags?].
Mrs. Bachmann, Mr. Gowdy: STAGE THE COUP!
SIDENOTE: Dan is obviously feeling better and that is damn good news.
