John Boehner Must Go; Here’s Why

December 19, 2013 by  

 

Hello, I’m Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty. John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of the United States of America and the leader of one of America’s two major political parties. Is he the best and brightest we have to offer? Are you kidding me?

No wonder the GOP Congress loses at every turn to Barack Obama. We are led by a fool. Boehner is the worst negotiator I’ve ever seen. He fights with a white flag. Total surrender. He fights like a man preordained to lose, his every move dominated by fear and an inferiority complex. This is our “leader?”

Or is it all just a big choreographed game, like professional wrestling? Are Obama and Boehner actually on the same team, fighting for the same goal: big government? Do they only put on a show from time to time to keep everyone fooled into thinking there are really two different political parties to choose from?

Or perhaps Obama is using the National Security Agency and the Internal Revenue Service to blackmail GOP politicians? Perhaps Obama has photos of Boehner in bed with the wrong person. Because the way Boehner fights these battles is so embarrassing, I’d have more respect for him if he were being blackmailed. That would explain his pathetic strategy, loser mentality and nonstop surrenders.

But now Boehner has gone and done the unthinkable. This time he’s done something so stupid, it tops everything that came before. Boehner just picked a fight with the Tea Party. He just attacked his own political base. His best customers. His true-blue conservative army. That’s touching the third rail of politics. That’s a fatal mistake. That’s called “career suicide.” Going to war with your own base is unforgivable.

I learned from the best. My grandfather came to America in the early 1900s with nothing. Zero. Just a dream. He worked for 20 years as a butcher until he saved up enough money to open his own butcher store. That small store became a huge success for more than 40 years. My grandfather became a relatively wealthy man (for a small businessman with a tiny store) and a respected business leader in his community… and, of course, a huge fiscal conservative.

Later in life, I asked him what was the key to his remarkable success, going from penniless foreigner to self-made millionaire with only a small butcher store. He told me it was always about the customer. He said, “There are 2 rules in business, my grandson. Rule No. 1 is: The customer is always right. Rule No. 2 is: If the customer is wrong, refer back to Rule No. 1.”

That’s it. Always protect your base. Treat your base — your most loyal customers, your true believers — as kings. And if they are wrong, treat them as if they are right. Why? Because without your best customers, you are out of business. You are up a creek without a paddle. Your success, riches and power derive from that base. Your job, above all others, is to nourish and protect that base.

Forget all the bad negotiating; Boehner has now violated the most important rule in business or politics. As pathetic as he is at negotiating, he was always forgiven. But this last act of madness cannot be forgiven. He has bitten the hand that feeds him. He turned on, attacked and denigrated the true-blue heroes of the Republican Party. He attacked the people who keep the GOP in business.

Without the true-blue conservatives, you don’t have a business — or, in this case, a political party. You have nothing. Without our support, our energy, our enthusiasm, our hard work in the trenches and our donations, you have nothing. The GOP — like any business or political party — ceases to exist without its best customers.

Boehner lost sight of the rules of battle. A business is in business only because of its best customers. Take them away, and the richest business owner is the owner of nothing. Just as an army exists only because of its soldiers; demoralize them, and they become a defeated army. The greatest general is left with nothing. In Japan, that general would commit hari-kari. In America, his life is spared; but he is relieved of command and retired.

A political party is a political party only because of its base. Without its most loyal supporters and true believers, it is extinct. And the leader of that baseless, rudderless party — no matter how powerful, no matter how delusional — is a leader of nothing.

Boehner chose to attack that base. And for that sin, Boehner can never be forgiven. For the sake of the GOP and the future of America, Boehner must go.
