[su_center_ad]What’s amazing here is how transparent John Boehner is about allowing the country to become vulnerable because of refusal to fund the Department of Homeland Security and blame it on Senate Democrats. And all because he and other Republicans want to hold the country’s security hostage to immigration.

[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace repeatedly questioned House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) Sunday morning over the upcoming deadline for Department of Homeland Security funding, which is set to expire at the end of February, just before Congress goes on a week-long recess.

The House passed a bill funding the DHS that also contained riders rolling back President Barack Obama’s executive order delaying deportations. Senate Democrats blocked its passage, demanding a “clean” continuing resolution. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that the ball was back in the House’s court, which was where Wallace found Boehner Sunday morning.

“The House has acted. We’ve done our job,” Boehner said. “Senate Democrats are the ones putting us in this precarious position. And it’s up to Senate Democrats to get their act together.”

Wallace invoked a rising sense of terror threats, and asked if Boehner and Republicans were prepared let the DHS shut down.

“Certainly,” Boehner replied, adding that Senate Democrats “would be to blame.”

    Gonna de-fund DHS because of immigration. Now that’s really smart.

      Republican logic.

        Yes, I believe it’s called Republican Circular Logic (an advanced form of Projection). It’s based on the childish obsession with causing major damage for the many when the few don’t “get their way”. Most people grow out of it as adults with the notable exception of politicians (especially Rebaglicans, and their hypocritical base). For these, there is nothing wrong with ‘their’ President taking executive action on immigration (as Raygun & Bush did), but they are quick to shutdown the government or it’s vital services in order to blame the other side. The $50M squandered on repetitive useless attempts to keep people from obtaining affordable healthcare is a perfect example, as is the billions wasted during the last GOP-led Fed shutdown which they also blamed on others. In adults this trait seems to be derived from keeping one’s head buried either in the sand, or in an anatomically uncomfortable location where it can then be used as a convenient seat cushion & flotation device!

      True, very short sighted on the part of the democrats to filibuster the bill in support of illegal immigration

      • Kim Serrahn February 15th, 2015 at 7:08 pm

        Sort of like the green eggs and ham filibuster.

    Because blaming the democrats worked so well during the other shutdowns. (facepalm).

    • Suzanne McFly February 15th, 2015 at 1:25 pm

      Sad thing is, is their constituents believe this crap.

    • Larry Schmitt February 15th, 2015 at 12:39 pm

      They passed a bill that they knew wouldn’t get past the senate, so they can blame the senate democrats.

      • rg9rts February 16th, 2015 at 1:54 am

        It drives them wild when their tactics are used on them

    • Mike February 15th, 2015 at 3:49 pm

      I’d explain that the bill the House gave to the Senate couldn’t possibly pass but that would require you to understand how government actually works…
      More Tea…???

    Hating the President more than you love your country.

  5. labman57 February 15th, 2015 at 3:01 pm

    Once again, the Congressional GOP and their propaganda peddlers at FOX News have chosen rhetoric over reality.

    True to form, Boehner and his clueless GOP cohort are once again suggesting that Obama and/or Senate Democrats will responsible for the damage done by a federal government shutdown.

    This is a completely nonsensical assertion, akin to a kidnapper who holds a gun to the abductee’s head while making pie-in-the-sky ransom demands, defiantly proclaiming that any harm done to the victim will be the fault of the family members who don’t comply with his ultimatums.

    Makes about as much sense as a drunk driver blaming Jim Beam for wrapping his car around a light pole.

    • rg9rts February 16th, 2015 at 1:52 am

      He is a drunk…

    They are trying to find an issue, any issue , that will fly…Benghazi is a flop and is now used to ridicule the gopee…time to fling some more mud and see if anything sticks…

    if the public falls for the erections remarks, so be it – it’s what is merited – or they could ignore the fool and move in a truly forward direction leaving the right in the dust.
