Finally, some good news out of Washington: John Boehner is resigning from congress.
For the life of me, I still can't figure out how this guy was able to retain the gavel of the majority party in congress for so long, considering he has been a roadblock in almost every single grassroots initiative to bring runaway congressional spending under control. One would think the guy was a Democrat, in all practical ways.
He has failed to deliver any of the promises that were made to the voting public if they delivered majority status to the GOP: repeal Obamacare, balance the budget, get tough on Iran, build a wall along the Mexican border, repeal the death tax, block partial birth abortions, de-fund Planned Parenthood, and a whole host of other conservative ideas to turn around the U.S. and its head long plunge over the fiscal and moral cliff.
He has been virtually impotent as a conservative leader going all the way back to his days as the House Majority leader under then-speaker Denny Hastert in 2006. If we all recall, this was the heady days when the GOP held all three legislative positions of power: the Presidency (George W. Bush), the Senate (majority leader Bill Frist) and the House (Denny Hastert). Doesn't anyone remember all of the progress we made towards a fiscally and morally superior country during that time of total GOP control of all things legislative?
Oh, yeah. That's because we didn't accomplish JACK SQUAT when we had the chance, thanks to this incompetent bunch of perennially weak and timid GOP establishment weenies, John Boehner chief among them.
The resignation of John Boehner is a huge step forward towards achieving a much needed conservative agenda: beefing up the military, securing the border, cutting taxes and beating back the secular progressive attack on all things good and decent in this country.
John Boehner was an impediment to any and all GOP initiatives during his entire time in his leadership roles in the Republican Party. He was the face of the now hated "Establishment/Old Guard Republican Party."
The only thing John Boehner will be remembered for, other than being an incredibly timid and weak leader, was that he had the lowest golf handicap in Congress. Big whoop.
Good riddance to this raging moderate cry baby. Things are now looking up for the GOP going forward. Carpe diem, Republicans. A major bottleneck in an American resurgence as that Shining City on a Hill has just stepped down.
Go get 'em.
