John Boehner Is The Fool On The Hill

This week’s episode of “Teapublicans Eating Their Own” features the Tea Party Nation and Republican House Speaker John Boehner (pronounced “boner”). Politico reports that Tea Party Nation wants to see Boehner defeated in the 2012 election.They are upset at what they believe to be the Speaker’s breaking of campaign promises to legislate the “Tea Party Way”.

The Tea-Baggers are primarily angry about the spending proposal recently passed in the House that would fund the government for the rest of fiscal year 2011 – which ends September 30. Although it would cut $61 billion from current spending levels, it falls far short of the $100 billion that Boehner and other Republicans promised to cut while campaigning last autumn. Judson Phillips, the founder of Tea Party Nation said, “The Republicans in the House quickly went squishy on that and had to be cajoled into cutting only $61 billion. Now, John Boehner is saying when the Senate comes back and they start negotiating…the $61 billion figure is not safe.” Phillips told CNN, “We’re getting more of the same political games as we have gotten in the past.”

Consequently, Phillips directed an attack directly at Boehner on the group’s website this week. He wrote,

“You look like a fool. Charlie Sheen is now making more sense than John Boehner.”

When asked by CNN if he was delivering an ultimatum, the Tea Party leader responded: “Yes.” He continued, “If Boehner doesn’t get up there, get on the ball, and start getting us some serious budget cuts –- I’m going to do whatever I can to have someone run a primary against Boehner.”

It is becoming more evident every day that there is a troubling split in conservative political circles. Establishment Republicans and Tea-Baggers are beginning to resemble the Hatfields and McCoys. The establishment Republicans are more realistic as to what conservative policies they might be capable of enacting with a Democratic Senate and President, while the wildly radical newly-elected Tea Partiers are facing a reality that they do not like and claim they will not accept. The feuding injures both camps. So long as each faction threatens to run candidates against the other, the GOP constituent base is being split. That bodes well for Democrats in 2012.

Is anything more satisfying than watching conservatives cannibalize each other? By the way, any day that John Boehner and Charlie Sheen are mentioned in the same sentence, is a good day for the Democratic Party!

THE FOOL ON THE HILL

(sung to the Beatles song, “The Fool On The Hill”)

Day after day
On Capitol Hill
Boehner is crying again
Let’s watch his eyes start to fill

And nobody wants to know him
He is just a Koch brothers’ tool
And he has not one good answer
John’s the fool on the Hill

John goes out on the town
Drinks his nose a bright red
He’s an orange-skinned clown

“Hell No” he’ll say
Sporting a frown
John’s deaf to the people’s voices
Doesn’t care if they drown

The Tea Party also jeers him
For the promises he does break
Boehner never seems to notice
He’s the fool on the Hill

Clouds are gathering round
John’s lost all his street cred
Bedding lobbyists down

(spray-tan break)

And nobody seems to like him
He has become yesterday’s news
His leadership role is reeling
John’s the fool on the Hill

His support’s leaving town
And his backers have fled
Soon he’ll be not around

Oh, round, an’ round, an’ round, an’ round, an’ round
Nobody listens to him
They know that he’s a fool
They don’t like him
The fool on the Hill

His support’s leaving town
And his backers have fled
Soon he’ll be not around

Oh, round, an’ round, an’ round, an’ round
Oh …

  1. To Judson Philips:
    Welcome to politics, bozo!

    To lynnrockets:
    See, you don’t need the grifter grandma. Plenty of fodder without her.

    • Judson Phillips is a JOKE here in Music City, USA. I am amazed that he is now being promoted as some sort of leader of the Teabaggery that DID NOT catch on here in Nashville. Phillips is a FAILED lawyer with IRS tax liens on his home and business along with TN state tax liens on his business. He FAILED as a lawyer, now he is raking in dough as “the Teabagger who drooled over Snowbilly Grifter” when she wrote on her hand last year at the Opryland Hotel. Teabaggery is just NOT happening in Tennessee EXCEPT in the rural, uneducated, unemployed areas of Faux Notion and Beckistan. They like their meth more than the like Teabagging.

      • Sounds like Phillips would be a great GOP candidate….lots of legal issues, and he’s good at calling people names. I mean, if they can run purty Christine despite her IRS issues, her lack of paid educational loans, her ethics questions, and her obvious dearth of knowledge about the Constitution…

  2. Hey pal you may get your wish to not have the Speaker re-elected to the 8th congressional district in Ohio. He couldn’t serve both the 8th district and the nation as President of the United States at the same time.

  3. Lynn: Your very funny. Sheen for vice president! More sarcastic vitriol which the Speaker can handle very well. He isn’t running for president, your right, but the ground swell grass roots movement is just beginning to draft him. And he wouldn’t be the first congressman from ohio to be elected in such a manner. Ever hear of James A. Garfield? And please don’t make a sarcastic remark about how the 20th president left office. President Obama is a good man but he’s just not doing whats necessary to lead this nation out of peril. In my opinion none of the current republican hopefulls can win. Boehner is on the front line daily. Good or bad he has the country’s attention daily in a political give and take with the president. People are going to take sides. It isn’t impossible that he could be nominated. Then anything could happen. Just saying. And please stop with the Charlie Sheen stuff.

    • Face it. It is impossible for Boehner to be nominated. He barely won enough support from his own party to be Speaker. The Tea Party hates him and he also has the baggage of an extra-marital affair with a lobbyist to contend with. On second thought, I can see it now: SHEEN/BOEHNER 2012.

      Actually, Obama is leading this nation out of peril. The Republicans have been harping about jobs, jobs, jobs, but do nothing about it. On the other hand, unemployment has fallen to its lowest level since April 2009. The unemployment rate has now fallen nearly a full percentage point in the last three months, the most rapid improvement in nearly 28 years. The economy gained 192,000 jobs last month. Another good sign: More jobs were added in the previous two months than originally thought. Readings for December and January were revised upward by a combined 58,000 jobs. This sure beats the 700,000 job losses per month under Bush. The Obama recovery plan is working. Let’s have a round of applause for our President!

      • {{{{{CLAPPING}}}}}

        I suspect it won’t be long before they start taking credit somehow for the improving economic numbers, which apparently are the result of just saying the words ‘jobs, jobs, jobs’ repeatedly.

        I think a big problem regardless of which party you subscribe to, is that the American public in general has no patience and expect magic bullet quick fix solutions to problems. A person doesn’t become obese overnight, yet many expect to find the instant cure product or pill. The economy wasn’t trashed overnight, and it won’t get fixed overnight either, but it is getting better. Keeping with Charlie’s theme… ‘the scoreboard doesn’t lie’

      • Winning

        “Carlitos” is certainly more popular and should definitely be at the top of the ticket! He seems a bit too jittery to be playing golf all day with lobbyists (he could get some sunshine, though), so he could leave that, and happy hour at DC bars, to Boner. @Pat in MA- hilarious clip!

      • Go Lynn…the right hates it when you throw those pesky facts at them!

      • (standing with arms raised high in the air, clapping!)

  4. Don’t call me Scarface

    The polls are quite clear: if something has to be done to reduce the deficit, voters prefer to see it done to billionaires, tax-dodging corporations and the bloated military.

    The Koch Mafia’s overreach in Wisconsin has demonstrated that the gullibility of voters, and their capacity to absorb abuse and punishment, isn’t unlimited.

    After winning the House by slamming Democrats for not focusing on jobs, the Party of No isn’t anxious for cuts that would lead to the elimination of hundreds of thousands of jobs- especially not their own jobs!

    • Funny, I have a CD with The Specials version of this song in my car right now. Great choice of video for this situation, BigPete.

    • Seems to me the GOP is all for more job loss…Walker’s plan to cut public workers is now being discussed in Ohio and Snyder in MI is threatening the same thing…they do not care how many people they hurt as long as they can show how macho they are. Walker took a surplus and gave it all away in two months so he could slam the unions. Snyder plans to cut corporate taxes for “small businesses” (not mom and pop’s, just those 1000 employee folks, and lower the rest of the corporate rate to 6%. Guess who’s picking up the difference? Individual rates, now at 4.6% will creep up to 35% in 5 years. Way to go, Guv. You won’t have anybody left in the state to work those non-union jobs, so the greedy bosses won’t make their money after all. Tax cuts do not create jobs! They are eitehr stupid or deaf. I go with stupid.
