Boehner rips right for raising money by ‘just beating the dickens out of me’

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is blaming conservative groups in Washington for turning him into a human pinata to raise money.

In an interview to air on Sunday’s “60 Minutes” on CBS, Boehner said he doesn’t disagree that much with conservatives on policy, but that the groups beat “the dickens out of me” in order to line their own pockets.

“The issue with the Tea Party isn’t one of strategy. It’s not one of different vision,” Boehner said, according to excerpts released by CBS.

“It’s a disagreement over tactics, from time to time. Frankly, a lot is being driven by national groups here in Washington who have raised money and just beating the dickens out of me,” Boehner said in the joint interview with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

    “Obama Republicans” are rewarded by the media for their loyalty and they become addicted to the favorable press. Boehner, McConnell, and Graham are the most high profile examples of this but there are many others who lay in the weeds and who’s slime trails are easily detectable.

    Here’s and easy fix Mr. Boehner, Do what you were elected to do.
    “Lay with the snakes you will surely get bitten”….Biblical
    Lucky they stop at treating Boehner like a Piñata, it could be worse, could be raining.

    Mr. O’Boehner, please, just go back to the White House and do what Obama tell you too, Period! You nearly got “handed your head” because you turned your back on the Conservatives, and “We” just don’t trust you at all. Prove to us that you are still a Conservative, rather than an Inside Republican, then we’ll talk!

    Stop the stupid inside squabbling the liberals love it. Never mind
    crossing the isle you have your own chasm to cross. It’s like a bunch of
    pubesent boys in a pizzing match. Nobody wins, you just both end up a
    disgusting, smelly, wet mess. Clean it up, tuck it in, and cowboy up, be a man.
    the enemy not each other. Now get to work, we’re fed up with paying for
    stupid, there’s more than enough of it coming out of the White-house.
