John Boehner Resigns
Republican Speaker of The House, John Boehner, resigned and will be leaving Congress at the end of October. When GOP Congressman, Mark Meadows, had drafted a motion to force the Speak Of The House's seat vacant and there were a large number of Congress members willing to vote him out along with an angry American public, Boehner read the writing on the wall. In his parting speech he touted his achievements as being conservative successes when in reality little did the GOP attain any meaningful opposition to President Obama's continued assault on the US Constitution.
Citing too much controversy and right wing conservative pressure, Boehner alluded to the massive influx of information on government actions in recent years with the proliferation of talk shows, social media, and organized conservative opposition the Speaker Of The House would rather blame this then the source of the problem. That source was the failure of the GOP to act as a viable opposition party and defend the US Constitution even with a majority in the House and Senate as President Obama steam rolled his agenda through using executive orders, executive privilege, and directly violating the US Constitution. As a result. under John Boehner's stewardship, a majority GOP Congress repeatedly capitulated and used only the symbolic token resistance leading to many pointless votes taken that were designed never to succeed. This deception led Senator Ted Cruz to call Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell a liar!
Legacy of failure
Having a GOP leader like John Boehner was like having an aid to President Obama who rolled out the carpet clearing the way for every controversial act and radical bill proposed by President Obama that has led to more the 10 trillion dollars in federal deficits, and compromised every aspect of American governance. In doing so, with the US media carrying water for the president almost nonstop, Republican leadership under John Boehner had little resemblance to the conservative values that were once attributed to the GOP. The Speaker of The House's announced departure raised cheers of joy among the Value Voters Summit on Capitol when announced in the morning. It was clear that John Boehner's time had come and under his leadership the GOP had lost many opportunities to stop President Obama and the Democrats to begin undoing the damage done by more than 6 years of the Obama presidency and the culture shock and divisiveness he has caused. Republican success could have hit its stride under Boehner, yet the Congressional leader chose to be President Obama's puppet.
Let the voters never forget that John Boehner campaigned on upholding the US Constitution, stopping Obamacare, defending the US border, and curbing spending. Instead, he ran a purge and removed true conservatives from many key positions and alienated the Tea Party essentially aiding and abetting President Obama's entrenched ideological assault on America.
