Speaker John Boehner supports war with Syria

The Wilsonian Progressive wing of the GOP are the ones who actually call the shots in the Party and love to get the US involved in any war they can. Speaker John Boehner and Majority leader Eric Cantor today pledges support to Obama for any action involved in Syria.

Speaker of the House John Boehner says that he’ll support President Obama’s “call for action” in Syria:

“The use of these weapons has to be responded to and only the United States has the capability and capacity to stop Assad and to warn others around the world that this type of behavior is not going to be tolerated,” said Boehner after meeting with Obama. “I appreciate the president reaching out to me and my colleagues in the Congress over the last couple of weeks. I also appreciate the president asking the Congress to support him in this action. This is something that the United States as a country needs to do. I’m going to support the president’s call for action. I believe my colleagues should support this call for action. We have enemies around the world that need to understand that we’re not going to tolerate this type of behavior. We also have allies around the world and allies in the region who also need to that America will be there and stand up whether it is necessary.”

War without end is what the Non Libertarian faction of the GOP supports. The Party of cautious Internationalism has become the Party of never ending war. There is nothing Conservative about the GOP’s foreign policy.

This is who the GOP elites wnat to assist.

    Obama knows this is going to be a bloodbath. He has to know this. Assad will use chemical weapons if he thinks the United States are going to depose him. Why wouldn’t he, after what Kadaffy got when we knifed him in the back? He’ll use chem wepons and kill a lot of our troops, and then Obama will pull us out in disgrace. I can see that as clear as if it were happening. That is what the plan is. The Republicans will be to blame, because they didn’t stop Obama.

    Most of these folks would prefer Hillary Clinton in the White House than a TEA Party conservatarian.

    @ Bumr50:

    Exactly right. Or, for that matter, they’d prefer Obama to a Romney who ran as if he wanted to win. Romney ran against other Republicans hard, but he used up all his willingness to hit hard on Perry and Gingrich. Obama? Not so much. And that is the way our next candidate will probably feel about it, too. The GOP is at war with its base, and has been ever since we elected Reagan.

    Mitt Romney wanted war in Syria.

    The base did not elect Reagan and the Base has been imposing its will on Non Base Republicans since 92. There is alot of resentment towards this base by non base Righties.

    The GOP elites love any war.

    @ Goldwaterite:

    YOu know, we may wind up seeing what the Republicans can do without the base. We’ve already done that in 1992, but you seem to forget that. YOu have to hold your base first. That is the most important thing you can do to win an election in the United States. You can’t lose your base and win. There simply aren’t enough “moderates” out there to win on, even if you pull in nearly all of them. YOu motivate and encourage your base. YOu get them out to the polls. Obama understands this. His whole election strategy was based on motivating the hard Left to vote early and often. Romney, OTOH, treated his base like he’d rather they would leave him alone. Her didn’t attend one Tea Party rally. HE didn’t even do publicity with the likes of Limbaugh and Hannity. And he lost. Just as McCain, who tried the same strategy lost, just as Dole who tried the same strategy lost, all the way back to when Bush I lost because the base pretty much all voted for Perot.

    This is a rogue government.

    All Romney did was kiss the ass of the base and wiped their shit with his tongue. What more could Romney have done, call for the sterilization of single mothers? I mean seriously, he turned into a Santorum clone.

    The growing Libertarian wing of the GOP is really a backlash against the base. The base’s era of bullying non base Republicans is going to come to and end very soon.

    Gotta run I will check the response later.

    @ Goldwaterite:

    Exagerate much? Romney ran almost diameterically the opposite of the base. Where was he on abortion, gun control, and even gay marriage? So he didn’t call for letting the queers buttfuck on the street corner. That is being a Santorum clone? And as far as Santorum goes, what is it abou thim that you dislike so much? He is a Catholic who has the temerity to actually believe the doctrine of his Church. More power to him. I don’t necessarily believe everthing he does, but better him than Pelosie. As for the growing Libertarian wing of the Republican Party, we’ll see. So far you all haven’t elected anybody to anything. Rand Paul has even distanced himself from your foreign policy. Letting Iran get nukes isn’t a sane choice.

    @ Goldwaterite:

    We don’t always agree on foreign policy issues, but we agree here. This whole thing in Syria boils down to nothing more than helping the thugs known as Al Queda oust the thugs known as Hezbollah. There literally is nothing in it for us. At some point in the future, who ever is left in charge there will repay us by storming our embassy and executing our ambassadorial staff. Our potential involvement in Syria can be summed up in two words, colossally stupid.

    I don’t think the GOP considers the Tea Party or all the young Ron Paul supporters that showed up as part of the base. And the GOP base constantly fractures itself over socon issues. They don’t realize the value of voting. If at a minimum just to keep Obama out of office.

    There is a larger base out there. But it is based on jobs and patriotism. Not on Obamacare or Syria.

    If I look back the past twenty years and think what really threatens us? I would say Al Quaida, Hamas, the Norks, and the Chinese. Maybe Chavez and the Bolivian marxist. Probably Islam as a whole.

    Al quaida is probably the only one of those targetable by a missle.

    So in Syria if I was going to launch missles. I would launch them at Al Quaida and just pretend I was trying to hit Assad. Oops..

    Get ready for higher fuel prices. Anything that has to be shipped or trucked will rise along with those prices. I’m stocking up on favorite coffees and teas. The cost of anything today will seem like a bargain by next fall. Make your own lists.

    @ Iron Fist:

    Rand Paul’s foreign policy is what most Libertarians believe. Unlike The base we are not into nation building nor kissing Islamic butt.

    @ Goldwaterite:

    So, your “big tent” isn’t big enough to include Evangelical Christians? THat is somewhere between a third and a half of the Republican vote. It is the largest single component of the Republican vote. Tell those people not to bother showing up, and you lose every time. And not by a small margin, either. Where are you going to replace those voters from? Gay marriage? There aren’t that many gays in America, and you’ll never get them all. Most gays, like most blacks, will vote for the Democrat every time.

    Rand Paul’s foreign policy is much better than his old man, but you have to sell that. That means convincing that base you so despise, and you don’t do that by coming down against what they hold near and dear. There was plenty of room for Romney to manuver. He chose not to. The “nation building” strain probably isn’t really the main stream of Republicanism, but neither is isolationism. Again, though, what we need is not caving to the Democrat vote, but rather a leader that can articulate and persuade people to see things his way.
