John Boehner’s departure

Open letter to the Editor:

“My mission every day is to fight for a smaller, less costly and more accountable government. Over the last five years, our majority has advanced conservative reforms that will help our children and their children. I am proud of what we have accomplished.” "The first job of any Speaker is to protect this institution that we all love.”
So sayeth you Mr. John Boehner, Speaker of the House on Sept 25th 2015 in his farewell notice of his resignation of office effective October 30th 2015. Well, I am certain that in his mind he is convinced of those words and comments he spoke to be the truth, self-evident and self-righteous to which my response is BULLSHIT! I say old chum, thouest, smellest something... Is it dog? No... Is it a horse? No… Is it thy pig? No... It’s Boehner BULLSHIT! Term: A blatant lie, a fragrant untruth, an obvious fallacy and yes excrement from a bull. Though I poorly quote "Only fools and horses" the concept is right anyway and I make no apology for my lack of proper English, respect or my choice of words in my terminology or of my opinion of his leadership as Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The bottom line, John Boehner failed his Country, his party, the American People and himself as Speaker of the House.
He gave into every whim, socialist idea, every social program, every raise of the debt ceiling, every decision on foreign policy, every healthcare issue, every illegal immigration issue and every budget and tax increase. OH YES, one can say he made a good appearance at sabre rattling which made for good TV, but yet he failed in every effort and yes, failed in perusing this administration on any illegal activity, cover ups and yes, he even chose to back off on this administration in such issues as the IRS, Benghazi and much more, too many to mention in his lack of leadership failures and time and space for this letter to the editor. His philosophical attitude is that of Rodney Kings, “Can we all get along,” (WHILE HE’S CRYING,) meantime the Democrats continue to roll right over the top of the Republicans while we control both houses!
Boehner while Speaker of the House, he has allowed this President to circumvent every Legislative body as he has seen fit as does the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The truth is, Boehner never acted positively on any issues or addressed any of the concerns with conviction nor did he put forward any advancement or agenda asked of him by the American People and their mandates in which got this newly elected body of officials to control both houses. Boehner’s leadership has never been an influence for any change in policies nor did he put forth any real attempt to change policies that the previous Democrats established while they held both houses which gave us the largest tax hike and socialist program in the history of this Country in the NOT so Affordable Health Care Act not only in medical cost and penalties to the American People but the taxes hidden within!
In conclusion, John Boehner did nothing as Speaker of the House but to capitulate and embrace this President socialist philosophy and agenda which has been more evident over the past two years. Mr. Boehner’s philosophical attitude towards this administration in NOT wanting to pursue any changes in the aforementioned policies or programs serves as proof and equally cements his place in history as having lack of conviction for the Constitution, Amendments and the rule of law, that is nothing but “Disgraceful.”
The following I submit as food for thought: People like Boehner, Reid, McConnell, Pelosi and so many more career politicians for far too many years have become so complacent in their jobs as to ignore the American People and YES, it is our fault. I sincerely believe those who understand the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution and Amendments, in those who serve ten to thirty years in office are NOT there for your best interest. I firmly believe the Founding Fathers did not intend for career politicians to live off the backs of the American tax payers. It is time for term limits in Washington D.C. and in how Washington does business on behalf of the American People and this Country and NOT for self-interest. What applies to all Americans should apply to Congress and the President as well. AGAIN, they are there to serve us, not to serve themselves!
It was apparent to this Republican long time ago that John Boehner should have never been the choice to lead the House of Representatives into the 21st Century, and in how I see the Senate, I will throw the United States Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in on that as well!
