John Boehner Thinks You Are Blind and Stupid

The primary goal of conservatism is maintaining the status quo in hopes of preventing progress, and Republicans are guilty of mendacity and hypocrisy to achieve their goals. For the past year and a half, Republicans focused on social issues and repealing Democratic legislation instead of creating jobs that they promised was their main concern going into the 2010 midterm elections. Subsequently, two years later, House Speaker John Boehner resorted to blatant lies and hypocrisy to reiterate their 2010 campaign slogan of creating jobs that is precisely what Republicans have obstructed and avoided throughout the 112th Congress.

On Thursday at his weekly Capitol press conference, when Boehner was queried about President Obama’s support for same-sex marriage, he restated his opposition to equal rights and told reporters he was “going to stay focused on what the American people want us to stay focused on, and that’s jobs.” Boehner also characterized the President’s announcement as a distraction from the nation’s economy, denounced the President’s congressional “to-do list” as a gimmick, and attacked the President for “diminishing the presidency” by focusing on his reelection campaign. It is harsh criticism from a habitual liar and rank hypocrite who is repeating 2010’s campaign message that Republicans immediately abandoned the second they controlled the House. Not only have Republicans opposed job creation measures, their job-killing agenda was a strategy to enrich the wealthy and their corporations. To make matters worse, Boehner led Republicans in a vicious assault on women’s rights that besides being hazardous to women, was a distraction from Republicans’ opposition and inability to create jobs.

Boehner told reporters that “We’ve got a lot of members who have ideas about what’s important to them and you see those items advance here every day. The American people – they’re concerned about jobs. That’s why you’ve seen us focused here for the last year and a half on jobs and cutting spending, so we’re going to continue to stay focused on what the American people want us to stay focused on.” The congressional record informs what is important to Republicans, and what they have been intensely focused on is defending the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act, restricting contraception use, assaulting women’s rights, and sending more Americans into poverty with Draconian cuts to social safety nets to make room for more tax breaks for the rich. In fact, last year when Boehner was informed that the first round of Republican spending cuts would kill over a million jobs, he said, “so be it.” So much for Boehner’s laser-focus on what matters most to Americans. The Speaker also boasted that cutting spending to reduce the deficit was crucial to creating jobs, but there is absolutely no correlation to the nation’s debt and jobs, and the Republican cuts kill public and private sector jobs as well as increasing the deficit with more tax cuts for the wealthy. Boehner is a liar, and he knows he’s lying when he parrots 2010’s Republican campaign promise to focus on jobs, jobs, and jobs, and the congressional record proves he is deliberately lying as a campaign strategy to distract voters from their real agenda.

Hypocrisy is an innate trait for Boehner and Republicans’ who have made socially conservative issues their primary focus throughout the 112th Congress; not jobs. They attempted to redefine rape, restrict contraceptive use, and maintain the bible’s definition of marriage that have nothing whatsoever to do with jobs and everything to do with imposing Christianity on the entire population. For Boehner to accuse the President of using equal rights as a distraction is beyond the pale, and a means to distract voters’ attention from Republican’s agenda of sending women’s rights back to the 1950’s instead of creating jobs. It has been the GOP’s goal to obstruct the President’s job creation plans to restrict economic growth, and they have voted against every jobs’ bill that has come up for discussion or votes. Republicans imply they are concerned with creating jobs with their rhetoric, but their ideology of giving the so-called wealthy “job creators” more tax breaks at the expense of social safety nets is a proven job-killer.

We get it.

Dear leader and the party tell you that it's the out of power party that's to blame or the demokrook failure to pass a budget for three years following a tenfold increase in the annual deficit, doubling the UE rate in spite of cooked numbers, and issuing assassination riders on US citizens ... and you obediently believe what you are tod to believe.

Tell us again ... we have always been at war with Eastasis haven't we.

Your 'passing a budget' hobbyhorse is misguided.

What you refer to is the non-binding passing of a budget total figure, which then requires the real budget be passed in the usual way, and which does not substitute for it.

By contrast, what has been passed for budgets is a binding law, rendering the need for the aspirational budget total resolution, moot.
