John Boehner Joins The Impeachment Crowd By Claiming Obama is Lying About Benghazi and the IRS

At a press conference that supposedly about jobs, Speaker of the House John Boehner joined the impeachment Obama crowd by claiming that Obama is lying about Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the IRS.

Video:

Boehner first promised that the Republican Benghazi investigation would not be a circus, “This is all about getting to the truth. This is not going to be a sideshow. This is not going to be a circus. This is a serious investigation. Our system of government depends on transparency and accountability.”

Later he turned around and claimed that President Obama is lying about everything, “Who’s been fired over the targeting of conservative groups by the IRS? No one that I’m aware of. Who’s gone to jail for violating the law? When is the administration going to tell the American people the truth? They’ve not told the truth about Benghazi. They’ve not told the truth about the IRS. They’ve not told the truth about Fast and Furious. Now, only one would have to guess. If they’re not willing to tell the American people the truth, it must not be pretty.”

So much for House Republicans holding a fair and open minded investigation that is interested in the truth. The point of these “investigations” is to drum up a case for impeachment. If Republicans can smear the Obama administration with a scandal, they think they can derail Hillary Clinton’s run in 2016. Boehner threatened the president with impeachment in January over his use of executive orders.

Speaker Boehner has already determined that the Obama administration is lying and breaking the law without an investigation. If Republicans can trump up something that they can call an impeachable offense, don’t expect John Boehner to be stand in the way, and be the voice of reason. Boehner sounds just like Rep. Darrell Issa now, and the Benghazi impeachment circus is getting ready to come to town.

  1. Well, since he has NOTHING to contribute about jobs, he had to say something. Sorry, but he is just another empty suit!

  2. This is not about any lies our beloved President allegedly told. Speaker Boehner can’t talk about jobs. THE GOP HAS NOTHING – ZERO – REGARDING JOBS OR ANYTHING THAT WILL CREATE JOBS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    All they know is TAX CUTS FOR THE JOB CREATORS!

    SURELY YOU KNEW THAT?

    It’s performance art. Bad art, I know, but art nevertheless.

  3. They have no proff, it’s all bull. They are just upset that our President will not stand by and watch them rip off 99% of the American people. Republicans do not stand for the American people, they stand for the rich and the rich only.

  4. and it will hit you on your backside. As an aside, I thought Boehner said he had control of ‘his people’. Sounds like they have hold of him…………..

  5. The DNC does not answer their phone, but I wonder why they never seem to come out with statements supporting President Obama when Teapublicans make such comments.

  6. NO sir he did not lie about the Bush Administrations failed Fast and Furious debacle and he did not lie about the failure of Republicans in removing needed funds for consulate security. But of course Mr. Obama seems to be wholly responsible for all the failures of the Reich Wing for the last 14 years according to them.

  7. This is the only reason I can comprehend that so many of the people–the teathugs in particular, call themselves Republicans. They are not what real Republicans just a short time ago were. Some folks want people to think they have money so they vote and call themselves Republicans for this reason. That so many of the teathugs are on ‘gubmint handouts’ — it is difficult to wrap one’s head around that thought. They vote against THEMSELVES!

  8. Obama’s foreign-policy regarding Russia succeeds in forcing Putin to remove Russian troops from the Ukraine border, and they’re hoping this announcement crowds out Obama’s success in the current news cycle.

  9. Do they need proof? They impeached Clinton and the majority of the country didn’t go along.

    Just remember if the repubs win the Senate and have the House they will not only impeach PBO, but might have the votes to try him in the Senate.

    I think I’m going to throw up.

  10. Boner might be an empty suit, but he and the repubs have a lot of power to do a lot of damage.

  11. Kelly, the way it works, the repubs could very well have the votes to do it. They are that insane that I expect them to do it.

  12. When I read the title I was hoping the story was about impeaching Boehner. That is what should be…but being real its the typical waste of time Republicans trying to make the Democrats look bad as they always are trying to do instead doing their jobs.

    I say impeach Boehner and the whole gang of Republicans like him, Ryan etc.. too many to list. They are not working for the best interest of this county but for the best interest of the Koch Brothers.

  13. Ah yes, the IRS. The one that Issa made up and has changed whitehouse emails to suit his fancy.

    Go for it boehner, we know its all about November. Everyone will be sick of you by then

  14. THIS BOEHNER IS PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT.! i CAN’T WAIT TUILL THEY RAIN ON HIS PARADE. THIS IS ALL ABOUT HIS LEGACY BEFORE HE STEPS DOWN AS AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE.

  15. Boner is an a$$hole along with his whole klan..Bush/Cheney lied about WMD’s where 3000+ lives were destroyed,where were they then? All due respect to the lives lost in Benghazi but these a$$holes are unbelievable. Please vote Mid-term to rid our gov’t of this trash that keeps getting in my eye.

  16. First he has to prove that any law has been broken. Even if Obama were incompetent, that’s not breaking a law. Even if Obama is lying, it’s not breaking a law unless it is under oath or if it rises to the level of fraud legally. Boehner is not stupid, he knows all that, he’s just being a politician in an election year.

  17. And his impeachable offenses are…what, exactly?

    Enumerate his offenses in detail, with actual evidence and fact, not innuendo and right wing fantasies.

    If Pres. Obama is such a lawless President, then prove it.

  18. This is Republicans doing what they do best. There has been too much good news for Democrats lately so they had to do something. The RW has nothing to run on, they are desperate.

    I guess it hasn’t occurred to them to maybe come up with some competing ideas for governing instead of depending on the right’s Obama Derangement Syndrome to get them re-elected.

    Of course, when you’re talking about a party where ignorance is preferable to education, you can’t expect too many bright ideas. I have been hoping since Ronald Reagan that the people in this country would wake up and see what the RWs want for this country.

    It has taken far longer for that awakening than I thought it would, but hopefully, the RW nightmare is about over in America. If we don’t stop them now, we may not be able to as they are taking over many positions in government such as the SCOTUS and they are consolidating power in the states.

    These are historic times we are living in, and the future of America is on the l…

  19. Coming to the finish line, and doing whatever it takes to further their agenda. may not be enough to win. it can be notice that trying to scare the president is, A WASTE OF TIME.

    The people of present America have seen the damage, don by our claim to be friends, that is quite the opposite, what ever is done trying to upset this forward motion will be deny.

  20. Bone Head!!! Please!!! Please climb into that Clown Car!!! PLEASE!!! Show the American People that you’re so set on destroying this President that you will abandon every other task and job you were elected to do just to get him. PLEASE show the American people what a dog and pony show you’re running. And PLEASE do so before the next election so we can really show you and the rest of the clown car passengers the door.

  21. Same BullS__t!! He gets fired up and starts his tuff talk and then runs off. Cause’ he knows he’s full of Sh__t! You have nothing bonehead. You all have nothing. Red face Racist pig.

  22. John Boehner has sold his soul to the devil to hold on as Speaker. If the Republicans win the senate they will try and impeach President Obama because they have nothing else. Democrats must vote in November to save the senate. What a sad state of affairs for our country.

  23. Repubs/Dems are both corrupt to the core. Rep/Dem is only a false created paradigm to divide the people, while the thieves working behind the scenes are stealing your money. If you see issues through a Republican or Democratic mind frame, the establishment thieves have already won!

  24. It is infuriating that they want to impeach President Obama, who saved this country from total economic collapse. He has done so much to help the American people, their healthcare, student reform, and other executive actions. The republican trash party and the ungrateful people with their rabid bigotry who are hypocrites and call themselves patriots. Reading through history, it is sad how the republican party has changed so much from its beginnings. It is not the party of Lincoln, but the party of Dixie. Sadly, if Hillary Clinton gets elected as the next president of the U.S., she will be treated with so much sexism. I can just imagine afterwards, the first Latino president, possible Mayor Julian Castro, with the same vitriol. We need to stand strong, repudiate the republican party, and support President Obama 100 %. As a coalition, we might have our differences, but we must stay united. A fractured coalition only means republicans have an opportunity to advance their agenda.

  25. Here is a good reason to fire the Prez…Thus far, 7 million Americans have received insurance termination notices due to HHS destroying grandfather status protection in June of 2010. Are these Americans permissible collateral damage due to a healthcare fiasco which was predicted by Tea Party and many conservative leaders before it was voted on? Are Americans and their families cannon fodder to be used and tossed aside due to Obama’s hidden agenda to decimate American lives and their healthcare?

    This is a new kind of horror in the nation that can and must not stand. Then U.S. Senator John Kennedy said in a 1959 speech, “This is not a time to keep the facts from the people—to keep them complacent. To sound the alarm is not to panic but to seek action from an aroused public. For, as the poet Dante once said: ‘The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in a time of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.’ ”

    Obama evades the truth and practices in hidin…

  26. You have no idea how hilarious that is. There are no 7 million. You really need to get off the bs right wing news. Any canceled policys were becuase the policy did NOT meet the ACA requirements. The corporations had since 2010 to upgrade them and didnt.

    Secondly the people getting notices were mostly in comp[any insurance plans. They were immediately moved to a new policy.

    Try doing your own research. You have been had

  27. It’s getting closer to election time and since they have absolutely nothing else to stay in the public light, here they come with bull. It’s time for someone on the Democratic side to start preparing impeachment charges against all of the GOTP for treason in shutting down the government and the rest of the lying, cheating and stealing they have been doing. Better yet start war crime charges against Bush and Cheney. In either case the proof and facts are there.

  28. Even if the repugs take the Senate, they won’t win a 2/3 majority. If they impeach Obama, it will insure a Democratic win in 2016.

  29. Once again Boehner is being led around by the nose by the extremists in the GOP (oops, former GOP).

  30. The desperation is so obvious it’s actually quite embarrassing to watch…the GOP have nothing to offer, all they have is a record of obstructionism and petty (and frequently libelous) attacks on the President so to hide their lack of any actual benefits they have given to the people, they choose instead to crank up that old worn-out conspiracy theory. Watch Monica Lewinski’s name to be dredged up again when Hilary runs….

  31. Gotta say, Pam, that I find it hard to understand that anyone would vote and say that they are a Republican just so others think that they have money, doesn’t make sense.

  32. Great post! I’m grateful that finally, someone else has spoken words I’ve been feeling.

    I have contacted the DNC numerous times to tell them that I will NOT support them until (1) Dems speak out and in the offensive, (2) Dems support President Obama and (3) that the DNC supports ALL Dems and (4) calls on Dems to speak out.

    Till these happen, they received nothing from me.

    I have unsubscribed / blocked everything from them to prove my point!

    It’s about time that Dems go on the offensive and stop cowering in the face of the any or all opposition!

    Thanks for your thoughts and true words!

  33. Any canceled policys were becuase the policy did NOT meet the ACA requirements.
    =====
    Doesn’t matter one whit what kind of policy it was.

    What the president said back in 2009 was “[the Affordable Care Act] is for people who aren’t happy with their current plan. If you like what you’re getting, keep it. Nobody is forcing you to shift.”

    And the administration knew full well – in 2010- that more than 40 to 67% of those in the individual market wouldn’t be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.

    http://news.yahoo.com/obama-administration-knew-millions-wouldn-t-be-able-to-keep-insurance–report-222249311.html

    Yet President Obama, was still saying in 2012, “If you already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.” When they made this promise, THEY KNEW half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had.

    Not much hilarity in any of that.

    I know…
    shut up and eat your mediocrity and tolerate the third rate.

  34. Half? Thats hilarious.

    The president counted on the healthcare corporations changing their policys. They didnt.

  35. Half?
    ~~~~

    The Obama administration knew for at least three years prior to the roll-out of the ACA that cancellations were coming.
    Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is that “40 to 67 percent” of customers would not be able to keep their policy. “The percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”
    That’s half in my world.

    The president knew full well in 2010, that people wouldn’t be able to keep what he promised they could keep in 2012. Period.

  36. OMG! WHAT ABOUT BUSH’S 13 BENGHAZIS THAT KILLED 134 PEOPLE? OH, AND THE LITTLE THING CALLED 911 REMEMBER THAT? IT HAPPENED IN THE YEAR 2001!

  37. Jobs jobs jobs, where are the jobs. The lying republican liars continue to lie republican lies. When a political party has absolutely nothing for 99 percent of the citizens, and will only do the 1 percents bidding then fake lies, fake scandal, fake outrage is all they have. The truth about what happened at Benghazi has been told to the American public, its just not the truth that the republicans need to keep the fake scandal going. The only real scandal is that the republican controlled 113th. congress is even worse than the 112th. congress which was republican controlled. John Boehner needs to be impeached and imprisoned for treason to the people and country of the United States of America.

  38. I would like to impeach BOEHNER, I can’t wait until November when him and all his lovely followers are voted out of office, I PRAY TO LORD, that you people get rid of him and his!!!! He’s a disgrace, sitting high on the hill and puts 7 million of AMERICANS out in the streets!!! Thanks to you my Daughter and I are starving and close to homeless. Here in CA!!!
