He couldn't have gotten this far if it weren't for the betrayal of the conservative/ tea party voters who gave John BARACK O'Boehner the gavel. He is as powerful if not more powerful than the Looting Usurper because he has the POWER OF THE PURSE, which he has failed to use. We all sit around blaming the lying Progs/DemonRATS but we have these phoney lying PROGS infesting the Big Tent called the Republican party who are ruling same. He has had plenty of opportunities to throw a wrench in Barry's communist agenda and hasn't instead he is looking for common consensus and we all know what the IRON LADY, Thatcher thought of consensus. There is no such animal when dealing with traitors and a crime syndicate.
