    "We will not surrender..." Bulls-Eye Boehner

    Which means we are flying to default. What is with this clown....? John Boehner, and who does he represent?

    The Tea Party caucus, a minority of the GOP caucus, a minority of the House, and supported by tiny minority among the electorate, can veto any deal he negotiates.

    He can't even get a Farm bill passed without their approval.

    Time and time again he's brought legislation to the floor only having to pull it at the last minute because he can't get his own caucus to follow him. We also saw this during the infamous Grand Bargain negotiations in 2011.

    Then-Spineless Obama gave just about everything in the house to Boehner.

    Even with all that Boehner still couldn't close the deal with his own people.

    So when Boehner calls for negotiations, the first thing that should be asked of him is 'if you get a deal, how do we know you can pass it?'

    The track record indicates he can't. In which case, what is the point of negotiating with him?

    The GOP needs to decide who is in charge of their party before they start calling for talks.

    From my view, that person isn't the highest Republican elected official in the nation, third in line to the Presidency.

    Apparently its a lunatic Canadian citizen freshman junior Senator from Texas.

    • So when Boehner calls for negotiations, the first thing that should be asked of him is 'if you get a deal, how do we know you can pass it?'

      Senate Dems have called for budget negotiations 18 times in the last six months (beginning April 23rd), but Repukes blocked every attempt at conference.

      Now Republicans are pretending they are all for conference. Sure, now that they have their juicy, quivering hostage in sight, “negotiations” (aka, terrorism) can commence. Yea for nihilism, lawlessness and anarchy, also known as the modern day Republican Party.

      As Jon Stewart recently opined:
      "If it turns out that President Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hardline, unreasonable, totalitarian mullahs in the world [Iran], but not with Republicans, maybe he’s not the problem."
