Republicans have been hand-wringing and wailing over their Election 2012 loss and not being able to get enough seats in the Senate to make a difference, not realizing that their past history, majority in Congress did not make a particle of difference in reforming our government back to a constitutional republic for which it was created: By the People and For the People.
Sarah Palin at the CPAC event, clearly stated [in so many words] that Republicans have caused their own problems: not standing up to the inaccurate and false accusations by the opposing political club, for example. The GOP establishment only utilized the Tea Party movement in hopes to increase their approval rating and obtain support. After Election 2012, they blamed their loss on the Tea Party, when in fact, it was their “chosen one” – Mitt Romney who lost it. People believed the outright lies and insinuations from the Obama camp because Romney did not stand up and be counted by immediately countering. When the media used the video of a private meeting with supporters concerning strategies by misinterpreting his 47% statement [based on real statistics] he did not respond strongly. His debate tactics did not improve since the last time he lost in a primary election, and his indecisiveness and changing his stand on issues; as well as his implementation in the state of Maryland a form of ObamaCare helped in losing votes.
Now, in a Martha Radatz interview [ABC], Speaker John Boehner stated:
The president and I, as I have made very clear, have a very good relationship. We’re open with each other. We’re honest with each other. … I’m part of the common-sense caucus. We appreciate the outreach. We appreciate the engagement from the president. But it’s gonna take more than this if we’re serious about solving our problems. … We do not have an immediate debt crisis. But we all know that have one looming … It could be a year or two years, three years, four years. It’s not an immediate problem.
Boehner then said he agreed with Obama on the immediacy of the problem.
GOP in the House were angry and told Breitbart News:
This undercuts the fight House conservatives have waged since 2010. Our efforts to prevent a debt crisis we will certainly face should never be minimized.
Speaker Boehner is not being honest by stating that this president “is honest”.
The Constitution requires a budget by Congress, not whenever they feel like it. Someone needs to explain what a budget is to the President and the Speaker and too many in Congress.
