A vote for Boehner is vote for Obama

DUMP-BOEHNER-NOWLet me see if I can make this really simple for House Republicans preparing to cast their most important vote of the next two years.

Tomorrow 247 Republicans will determine who the next House speaker will be. The speaker of the House is the second most powerful position in Washington. If there is to be any meaningful opposition to Barack Obama’s agenda in his last two years in office, it will require the House speaker to provide it.

It’s as simple as this, now that Rep. Louie Gohmert, an honest, straightforward, principled conservative, has thrown his hat into the ring: Who would provide better leadership of the House – Boehner or Gohmert?

Locate your representative in Congress and contact them to give your input on whether Speaker Boehner should be retained or ousted.    http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

John Boehner has served in this role for the last four years. He has accommodated Obama in every way imaginable with his leadership. He has arm-twisted Republican votes. He has threatened opposition. He has controlled his caucus like Kim Jong-un, without the charisma.

Unfortunately in America, we have only two parties. So, last November, Americans outraged at Obama over his party’s government takeover of health care and Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty voted in big numbers to send more Republicans to Congress.

That election will be meaningless, however, if Boehner is re-elected as House speaker.

Why? Because Boehner is (how do I say this politely?) … Obama’s pooch. You know what I mean?

He has accommodated Obama at every turn, including providing all the funding he needs to implement Obamacare and the sweeping executive amnesty that he himself calls “unconstitutional.” Hello? If it’s unconstitutional, why would Boehner have any part of it? Why would any Republicans in Congress? Why would they fund an initiative that is prima facie illegal?

Just a couple weeks ago, I decided I had to do something about this impending vote that could well determine whether America is able to survive what Obama has in store for it in the next two years.

Coupled with your urgent phone calls that will need to melt down the phone lines of the House Republicans in the next 24 hours, I’m hoping they get the message.

Even if Boehner survives the vote, he can still be dumped later in another vote. In that case, the campaign will continue.

But all it will take tomorrow, I believe, are 29 House Republicans finding the courage to oppose Boehner on the first vote. At that point, failing to get the majority he needs, he may do the honorable thing and step down. In any case, future votes are likely to find a more worthy successor.

Right now it looks like a long shot. But House Republicans need to be persuaded they will be judged harshly for starting the new session of Congress with a business-as-usual attitude.

Americans very clearly voted for opposition to Obama in November. Americans will not see any if Boehner is returned to the office of House speaker. It’s that simple.

House Republicans need to grow a pair real fast.

A vote for Boehner tomorrow is a vote for Obama.

They need to hear that, see it and feel it in their soul.

They need to know the fate of the country is in their hands. That’s why they were sent to Washington.

Plenty of Americans already believe there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between Democrats and Republicans. A vote for Boehner will prove that. It will seal the deal. It will almost assuredly result in the formation of another party or parties.

This vote is big.

It’s big for Republicans. It’s big for America.

Pray for courage for 247 Republicans over the next 24 hours.

And keep those cards and letters coming.
