Amash mends fences with Boehner

U.S. Rep. Justin Amash said he and House Speaker John Boehner are on better terms now than they were late last year when Amash was kicked off the House Budget Committee, a move seen as retaliation for Amash’s independent voting record.

Amash said during a town hall meeting in Marshall on Saturday that House leaders need to understand that the Internet and social media make members more likely to voice their own opinions. Amash, a fan of communicating to constituents through Facebook, said he spoke with Boehner in the speaker’s office after requesting a meeting.

“I think we understand each other a little better now,” Amash said.

“He’s a good man,” Amash said of Boehner, R-Ohio. “I’ve never disputed that. We’ve just never seen eye-to-eye on strategy.”

Snake: hop on my back I'll give you a ride across the river.

Snake: Hop on my back I'll give you a ride across the river.

Mouse: But youll bite me and eat me.

Snake: No that was the old snake since I shed my skin I am born anew.

So the mouse hopped aboard.

Upon reaching the other side the snake promptly bit the mouse.

Mouse: Why would you do that?

Snake: I'm a snake.

I question "boener is a good man"

I trust amash when he makes sense, which is a lot, but that statement didn't seem to make sense.

So has Boehner put Amish back

So has Boehner put Amish back on the Budget Committee? Not! So what has changed that makes him such a good man... Nothing he is a RINO who needs to be taken out of office yesterday. I will support nearly anyone who runs against him with time and treasure.

Seriously.

I’d vote for used toilet paper over that douche nozzle.

after the ayes have it

scandal you'd think bonehead would have resigned in disgrace, but no, lying in his circle is considered
par for the course.

amash doesn't agree with him on strategy? what does that mean? amash doesn't agree that lying and back room
deals are okay, but he still claims bonehead is a good man?

is there anyone on the hill that can rise to the knee level of ron paul?

LOL.... I hear you

LOL.... I hear you

Great Job Amash!

Your constituents are gonna love you.

Didn't Boehner say yesterday

Didn't Boehner say yesterday that he regretted compromising with the Democrats to avoid sequestration? Either Amash responded favorably to Boehner's regret or Boehner's regret was in response to his meeting with Amash. Regardless, Boehner's track record is pitiful, but maybe Amash can get through to him...

beohner may possibly read this forum

fyi: there is an effort in his area to vote him out. He does nothing but try to cover his own ass. People are sheeple for only so long. And then they wake up like I did.

Ohio is becoming a pretty good state :-)

Good. Although I'm not a native Ohioan, both of my parents are natives of Ohio. I still have many relatives in the NW part of Ohio so it's good to know that my distant relatives are patriots who can't stand chameleons for politicians. Stand on constitutional principle or else! ;)

I wish that Amash had ended a little bit different.

"We’ve just never seen eye-to-eye on"..... Liberty, The Constitution, and what fascism is. As far as I can determine, Speaker Boehner is a puppet of the military-industrial complex. Besides that, we get along fine.

I guess if Amash had said this, the fences would have been needed to be mended again.

AMASH IS A TRAITOR and a SELL OUT.
I will NEVER VOTE FOR HIM.

He has cozied up to someone who is pro israel and voted for the ndaa and patriot act etc etc. Next he will be endorsing drone strikes on innocent americans. He probably was involved in 911 and the sandy hook shootings.
By speaking wih Boehner, now he has sold out his own FATHER, ummm i mean Ron Paul.

You are right, He and Rand are just pieces of

crap. Sellouts, against Ron and the Liberty Movement.. No one should ever vote for either of the Neo-Con poster children. We are not that freaking STUPID! I'm right there with you!

Just Playing, LoL!

Things seem murky, because they are. Keep moving forward. When the time comes, we will know.

Justin, Rand, Thomas and others, they will do what they must, and so will we :-)

I didn't know that you were joking, but wow, I'm glad to know that you were!

Maybe *I* need a break from this board, I am totally wiped from todays Campaign for Liberty. On a positive note, we made VERY great headway today :-)

* Saving the best for last - JUSTIN AMASH is becoming VERY popular, well respected and awesomely liked, and it's not even his own state! :-)

Thanks and yes, Mr Amash is BRINGING IT and I like that!

Wether you like it or

Wether you like it or not...we have to form an alliance with these people. We cannot win without them...visa versa. But mean time...we just keep taking prominent positions and we will soon have controle of the party and they will have to do things our way...they will have no choice.

Wrong.

Justin, Rand, Thomas, etc. have to do what they must in order to work along side of them. It is OUR job to critisize and hold their feet to the fire. WE are the constituents. WE must object and loudly protest when they fail to adhere to what is right.

Please do not lose sight of that.

Justin makes news again.. he's my man.. he is on the horizon :-)
