    No, John Boehner is not running for president, but he does have some things to say about a candidate or two.


    http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/27/politi...vative-groups/

    Washington (CNN)John Boehner lashed out at "false prophets" in the right's ranks, blaming them for political strategies that "never had a chance" even while taking the government into fiscal crises.

    "Absolutely, they're not realistic," the retiring House speaker said of hard-line conservatives and outside groups in a Sunday interview on CBS' "Face the Nation."

    He pointed to the October 2013 shutdown after conservative House Republicans demanded the repeal of President Barack Obama's signature health care law as one maneuver -- led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz -- that was never going to succeed.

    "The Bible says beware of false prophets. And there are people out there, you know, spreading noise about how much can get done. I mean this whole notion that we're going to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare in 2013 -- this plan never had a chance," Boehner said.

    "But over the course of the August recess in 2013 and in September, a lot of my Republican colleagues who knew this was a fool's errand -- really, they were getting all this pressure from home to do this," he said.

    Boehner said conservative, Washington-based groups knew the goals they were championing couldn't be accomplished but pressed for them anyway.

    "And so, we've got groups here in town, members of the House and Senate here in town, who whipped people into a frenzy believing they can accomplish things that they know -- they know -- are never going to happen," he said.

    Asked specifically if Cruz, a GOP presidential candidate, was a "false prophet," Boehner didn't dispute it. He even pointed to his comment at a private fundraiser, leaked to reporters later, that Cruz is a "jackass."

    "You can pick a lot of names out. I'll let you choose them," he said.

    Asked about his own regrets, Boehner pointed to the collapse of the "grand bargain" -- a deal he and Obama had quietly put together that would have addressed the debt limit and government spending long-term.

    "It's probably one of the biggest disappointments in my speakership," he said. "We were so close -- we had an agreement. And two days later, the President walked away from it. It would have saved about $5 trillion over 10 years, it'd have been good for the economy, it'd have been good for our country, it'd have been good for our kids and grandkids. But you know, it's Washington."

    The advice Boehner said he'd offer the next speaker sounded similar to his criticism of his party's right wing. He urged his successor to accept that small victories are sometimes the best that can be done in a complicated, split system of governance.

    "Keep the country's best interest in mind and have the courage to do what you can do," Boehner said. "In our system of government, it's not about Hail Mary passes. It's the Woody Hayes school of football -- three yards and a cloud of dust. Three yards and a cloud of dust. It's a slow, methodical process."

    Hi

    they are all hypocrites and clowns out of touch with reality living in their own world funded by special interests.
    so tired of the super pacs and spin doctoring and lobbiest buying politicians.
    and mud slinging
    I think living out of country and getting news from independent sources and not your favorite local network that spouts the same dogma to win you in. gives one a much better view of what really is going on like the old saying "can't see the forest for the trees"

    Only one person is telling it like it is and has been his entire career

    BREAKING: Trump Issues 1st Statement on Oregon Shooting… Leaves Liberals BOILING

    Americans across the country were once again stunned by yet another tragic mass shooting, this time at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, which left 10 people dead and at least seven wounded.

    Billionaire businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump addressed the horrific incident, calling it “a terrible tragedy.”

    Speaking to The Washington Post, Trump declared, “It sounds like another mental health problem. So many of these people, they’re coming out of the woodwork. We have to really get to the bottom of it.”

    “It’s happening more and more,” he added. “I just don’t remember — years back, I just don’t remember these things happening. Certainly not with this kind of frequency.”

    Keeping his focus on the topic of mental health issues, Trump spoke to the crew of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday morning, according to The Washington Times, saying, “It is a terrible situation. It’s huge, mental illness. You’re going to have these things happen, and it’s a horrible thing to behold. Horrible.”

    Trump noted that there are “very strong laws on the books,” but added, “You’re always going to have problems.”

    “People are going to slip through the cracks, and even if you did great mental health programs, people are going to slip through the cracks,” he said. “What are you going to do, institutionalize everybody?”

    Trump then noted that the shooter, identified as Chris Harper Mercer, likely fits into the familiar pattern seen in most mass shooters recently.

    “Probably we’ll find out with him, like we did with numerous of the others, that gee whiz, they were loners and they were probably sick. You know, oftentimes this happens and the neighborhood says, you know, we sort of saw that about him, and it really looked like he could be a problem,” Trump said.

    “It’s awfully hard to put somebody in an institution for the rest of their lives based on the fact that he looks like he could be a problem.”

    He added, “So you are going to have difficulties — you’re going to have difficulties with many different things, not just this. And that’s the way the world works, and by the way, that’s the way the world always has worked.”

    It is noteworthy that Trump never once mentioned guns, but focused instead on the evil intent and likely mental issues of the shooter.

    This is common sense to most of us, as we realize that a gun is nothing more than a convenient tool, to be used for good or bad, depending upon the person wielding it.

    Of course, liberals are furious that Trump didn’t follow the rest of the media lemmings in calling for tighter restrictions on gun ownership and strict gun control, as Trump realizes such efforts are unnecessary, unconstitutional and counterproductive. To wit, it was a person with a gun that finally brought this latest shooting spree to an end.

    Jeb Bush attracted a burst of unwanted media attention Friday when he said that "stuff happens" while responding to a question about the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.

    The GOP presidential candidate and former Florida governor suggested that the tendency to seek a government solution after an event like the Oregon shootings -- in which a gunman killed nine people and wounded nine others -- can be misguided.

    "It's very sad to see, but I resist the notion -- and I had this challenge as governor because we had -- look, stuff happens and the impulse is always to do something, and it's not necessarily the right thing to do," Bush said.

    President Barack Obama, who on Friday made another plea for tougher gun laws, told reporters that, "I don't even think I have to react to that one."

    The president then quickly added:

    "I think the American people should hear that and make their own judgments based on the fact that every couple of months we have a mass shooting. ... And they can decide whether they consider that stuff happening."

    After his remarks, at a South Carolina event, Bush replied with frustration when asked if he made a mistake with his "stuff happens" comment.

    "No, it wasn't a mistake. I said exactly what I said. Explain what I said wrong," Bush told The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza. "Things happen all the time. Things. Is that better?"

    Lizza later posted on his Twitter feed Bush's full remarks, which show the candidate went on at some length before his "stuff happens" remark. Here's an excerpt from what he said when asked to comment on the shooting:

    "Whenever you see a tragedy take place, the impulse in the political system, more often in the federal level but also at the state level is to do something, right? And what we end up doing lots of time is we create rules on the 99.99 percent of human activity that have nothing to do with the tragedy that forced the conversation about doing something.
    And we're taking peoples' rights away each time we do that, and we're not necessarily focusing on the real challenge.
    So if we have people that are mentally ill, to the point where they go into the vortex and they don't come out and they're hateful and they're in isolation and they kill people, the impulse in Washington is, take personal rights away from the rest of us.
    And it won't solve the problems of this tragedy that is just heartbreaking to see. Maybe we ought to be more connected in our communities, maybe we ought to have greater awareness of mental health challenges that exist all across this country. Maybe there is a better way to deal with this than taking...personal liberty away every time we kind of require people to do something."
