It's time to bench Boehner

If you could devote just a few moments to reading this column, then following the instructions at its conclusion, you’ll have the opportunity to help bring change to America.

Real change.

Because change requires leaders willing to make a stand and be bold in defining their vision, instead of resorting to tears whenever the cameras appear.

And change and dynamic leadership are impossible when you’re constantly wiping away tears from your eyes, right Speaker Boehner?

The American people spoke loud and clear last November when they went to the polls and rejected the Obama agenda; of course, in rejecting the Obama agenda, the only other game in town to vote for was the Republican Party.

For better or worse, the American people put their faith in Republican candidates to storm Washington, D.C., and take a stand against amnesty for illegal aliens, resist further expansion and implementation of Obamacare and oppose a party whose president relied on Al Sharpton as his moral compass on the situation in Ferguson.

With President Obama drunk on the powers of the presidency and defiantly challenging the Republican Party to take away the executive order proof alcohol he continued to imbibe, the American people demanded the GOP institute some semblance of prohibition with the historic vote; instead, John Boehner decided to fund the very programs and actions the voters spurned when he rushed to pass the cromnibus bill.

With this passing, Obama was allowed to continue his bacchanalia all over the United States Constitution – courtesy of a House of Representatives led by John Boehner.

Now is the time for change.

Joseph Farah, CEO of WND, has put together a fantastic concept called #DumpBoehner. Urging the American people to help an innovative campaign – which sends a hard-copy letter to all 247 Republicans in the House to dump Boehner as speaker – the DON’T BE YELLOW, DUMP BOEHNER NOW CAMPAIGN is the type of concept needed in a time where leaders seem unwilling to rise up in defense of the country.

There’s a big difference between politics and Major League Baseball: In the latter, you must constantly produce positive results that result in winning for your team or run the risk of being benched or even demoted to the minor leagues.

In politics, once you’ve reached Washington, D.C., you can completely abandon all the rhetoric that got you elected in the first place and consistently fail at working to implement your campaign promises only to find Team GOP decides to keep promoting you based on a simple premise: loyalty to the party and disloyalty to the voters who elected you.

Only in Washington, D.C., can you fail up, whereas in professional sports, failing to produce will earn you a trip to the bench and eventually free agency without any interests from other teams.

With Boehner, conservatives have a politician liberals and the Washington, D.C., Republican establishment loves – one who will float with the prevailing liberal tide, no matter where it is taking the country, refusing to rock the boat to the cheers of fellow Republicans peacefully ensconced in positions of power in the nation’s capital.

Conservatives, like myself, want someone who will not only rock the boat, but will be the type of leader brave enough to point out the prevailing liberal tide is taking the nation directly into the path of an iceberg larger than the one that sunk the Titanic.

And the speaker of the House, Boehner, actively worked to ensure funding for the Obama agenda when he pushed through the passing of the cromnibus bill.

The tears John Boehner routinely cries only add to depth to the waters of the liberal tide threatening to capsize this great nation.


A pragmatic step in working to alter the fatal course America is currently on requires the new members of the House of Representatives to spurn John Boehner and elect a new speaker of the House.

Boehner is reminiscent of a Major League pitcher who consistently has control problems and gives up too many runs, but for some strange reason stays in the lineup.

The reason he’s still in the lineup? Because he’s fourth or fifth in the rotation, and his team can afford limited productivity at this spot.

Politics, however, is not baseball.

You don’t want a borderline Major League pitcher as your ace, which is what Boehner represents as speaker of the House.

He gives up so many home runs to the Democrats (in terms of refusing to stop amnesty, work to defund Obamacare or oppose any of Obama’s liberal agenda), you some times have to wonder if he is pitching for the other team.

So today, I urge you to call your congressman and demand that they bench Boehner and call up a conservative to the mound as the new speaker of the House.

We need one who will dare to throw strikes at the Obama agenda instead of giving the Democrats a free pass to further damage the country.

Conservatives needs a leader, and the speaker of the House offers a role for this leader to emerge; instead, the man currently occupying the spot is a person the Democrats know is pitching a similar agenda as they do.

Dump Boehner.

Urge your congressman through phone calls, faxes or social media posts to do the same.
