Face The Nation Video: Boehner Says He Can't Take A Stand On The Issues Because It Makes His Job Harder

Face The Nation Video: Boehner Says He Can't Take A Stand On The Issues Because It Makes His Job Harder


(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) apparently sees his role as more of a facilitator than a leader.

Asked repeatedly if he favors a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal aliens, Boehner told CBS's "Face the Nation" that his job is not to take a stand, but to let the House "work its will."

cannot do diddly

If the Speaker cannot take a stand and represent his District,

he should resign so someone else can.

Perhaps a Speaker who was not a member of Congress would be preferable.

Based on the fact

that Boner is the largest recipient of money from AIPAC and related Israeli special interest groups...it seems to me that Boner's primary objective is to move forward the Israeli agenda...he's Israel's bitch.

Yep Eddie Boners job is just to let things happen

Who could forget this classic Boner moment

Look. I sympathize with him.

Look. I sympathize with him. Part of his job is appealing to his constituency. If he believes there should be no pathway to citizenship, but 70% and 60% of the country believes there should be (made up %s, just for example) such a pathway, he has an obligation to do what his constituency wants.

Plus, even if his own district does not support it, if many other districts do, he has an obligation to work with them. They were elected leaders of their districts fighting for their consituents's beliefs.
