John Boehner has capitulated. Not that he has ever stood up for the people. Speaker Boehner is offering to compromise with Obama to increase
taxes revenue to avoid the approaching “fiscal cliff” less than 24 hours after the election. Although no one is saying it today, if Republicans had any testicles, we would not be here. Romney performances in the last two debates were pathetic. I know, it is easy to play Monday morning quarterback after the game is over. But this is not the case if I am on record as stating this for the past six months.
My opinion of Romney did change over the course of the election process. I think he ran a clean campaign and was trying to restore civility to our country’s politics. However, nice guys do finish last in Chicago, Illinois, Washington, D.C. and everywhere else where people have traded Liberty for presumed rights and entitlements.
But back to Boehner caving again. The Republican party only controls the House of Representatives in the current balance of powers. Without a leader, their role in the future is assured: the country is headed for economic destruction. But then that would have happened eventually with a Romney administration.
Republicans are “willing to accept new revenue” to tame the soaring national debt and avert an ugly battle over the approaching “fiscal cliff,” House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday in a speech that offered a potential path to compromise in year-end budget negotiations.
With President Obama reelected and Republicans returned to a slightly smaller majority in the House, Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday’s election amounted to a plea from voters for the parties to lay down their weapons of the past two years and “do what’s best for our country.”
