John Boehner: My New Hero

John Boehner is my new hero! We need about 434 more folks with his common sense in the House of Representatives.

I couldn't find the embed code, so here's the link to his remarks about the 300+ page amendment to the ACES Act (Cap and Trade) filed by Henry Waxman at 3:09 A.M. Friday morning before a vote scheduled at 5:00 p.m. that same day. He made Waxman look like the pontifical ass he is.

I'm sorry, but I am all fired-up about this hurricane-force speed that Congress has adopted in the process of enacting legislation that is WAY too complex and WAY too overreaching. California has been oh-so-successful in its own governance! I say that we send ALL the California delegation back home to clean up their own house before they go messing with anyone else's!


  1. i was loving every moment watching his entire hour plus speech - he didn't pull any punches and could have flooded the house chambers with his dripping sarcasm. yes, he has a way with words. imagine how tired he must have been that night after being up from three in the morning, read a ridiculous addendum, address the zoo, dust himself off and get on with business.

  2. I like Boehner a lot, too. The vote was close in the House and the bill probably won't fly in the Senate... according to this. We can hope (and pray).

  3. Hmm. "according to this" is a link, but you might miss it since it's not blue!

  4. I am speechless regarding how things are going...and that doesn't happen often..
