"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

John Boehner Fires Back at President Obama at GOP Rally in Cincinnati

Great news from the State of Ohio where we grew up -- GOP candidates are on the verge of turning Ohio back Red tomorrow!  We cannot think of a better thing to happen and so happy to see that Obama was finally outed for his trips into Ohio had more to do with him running in 2012 then with Strickland.  Obama can forget trying to say he meant 'opponent' as he said loud and very clear 'enemies' which a lot of us will never forget. 

Going to be AWESOME to see Ohio came back to Red State America in 2010 and also in 2012 as the new Republican Administration in Columbus cleans up voter fraud left behind by Obama's ACORN group along with years of Democrat voter fraud since they think a dead person voting is okay.

The prospect of saying Speaker of the House John Boehner gives me chills -- he is one of the finest men in the US House and the Congressman from our former House District in Ohio.  Looking forward to watching returns come in tomorrow night and see the House of Representatives flip to Bright RED! 

Good Luck tomorrow to every Republican running in Ohio and electing a team to bring the Ohio economy back from the abyss! 

John Boehner fires back at President Obama at GOP rally in Cincinnati
House Minority Leader whips up crowd for election Tuesday - and 2012

EAST END - House Minority Leader John Boehner, at a rally of GOP volunteers Monday evening in a Lunken Airport hangar, gave President Barack Obama a taste of what he can expect if the West Chester Republican becomes the next speaker of the House.

"The president has been here in Ohio a dozen times this year, and (Ohio Gov.) Ted Strickland thinks it is about him," Boehner told a crowd of over a thousand Southwest Ohio Republicans who came to Lunken to see him and John Kasich, the GOP candidate for governor, and Rob Portman, the GOP Senate candidate.

 "It is not about him - this is about President Obama getting re-elected in two years," Boehner said.

Boehner took a pointed shot at the president, who has been criticized in recent days by conservatives for an interview with Univision, the Spanish-speaking TV network, in which he used the word "enemies" to describe his political opponents.

The White House clarified the statement Monday, saying he should have referred to them as "opponents."

Boehner wasn't having any of it Monday night.

"I have a word to describe these people who have the audacity to fight for our constitution, Mr. President," Boehner said. "These people aren't enemies; they are patriots."

Boehner, who grew up in Reading and went to Moeller High School, told the crowd he was humbled by "being here on this stage."

"I'm the last guy in the world who should be here - I grew up just up the road in Reading; I had 11 brothers and sisters; my dad ran a bar," he said. "But that's America."

If Republicans win control of the House in Tuesday's election - and there is every indication that will happen - Boehner is unlikely to face any opposition in the vote for speaker in January.

Speeches by Boehner, Kasich and Portman were punctuated by performances by country singer Hank Williams Jr., who dispensed not only tunes, but political rhetoric. That got as much of applause from the crowd as the speeches by the politicians, if not more.

"I'm tired of being punished for doing well," Williams shouted.

The country singer recounted a conversation with his home-state senator, Tennessee Republican Lamar Alexander, who told him to "think about a bright, burning fire and putting a wet blanket on it. That's what the Obama administration has done to this country."
