Rep. John Boehner, Blocking Position

This has received a lot of attention, and well it should: Speaker of the House has fired some conservatives because they didn’t want to play ball – ball, that is:

A GOP leadership aide told NBC News that the four members [who were fired from their positions] – Michigan‘s Justin Amash [ Index 92], Tim Heulskamp of Kansas [FI 82], Walter Jones of North Carolina [FI 97] and Arizona’s David Schweikert [FI 85] – were “clearly not team players.”

Rep. Ron Paul [FI 100] couldn’t believe Boehner would do something so stupid:

They’re going to punish freshmen legislators? If you’re looking for dissension, then you’re going to get it. These congressmen will never cave. They’re going to get the support of the people … They will become heroes.

It will also serve to clear up any confusion about which side of the fence Boehner is on.

Mark Horne, the writer of the article at Last Resistance, doesn’t understand Boehner. He thinks he’s made a huge mistake:

What I don’t understand is how Boehner and his fellows cannot understand that they are burning down their own house.

Whether candidates are sincere or lying, the voters want to believe they are choosing a candidate who has principles other than simply staying in office for personal gain. To publicly advertise that anyone who believes in a balanced budget and an unencumbered economy is simply going to be excluded from “the club” is to invite being kicked out of office.

Boehner has got to realize that he can’t just pretend to care about the looming debt crisis and continue to not do anything about it.

The word hypocrite comes to mind here, but it’s worse than that. Boehner has been an establishment for years. Just take a quick look at his entry at Wikipedia: he’s been in Congress since 1991 and “is second in line to the Presidency following the Vice President.” He knows how to play the game. He is not only a member of the GOP (Grand Old Party) but also the GOB (Good Old Boys) club.

Horne has high hopes for Boehner:

The more desperate the economy gets, the more Boehner will have to openly work to put down Conservatives in Congress. And the more Boehner’s evil work becomes visible to all, the more he is going to enrage conservative voters.

One can hope.
