Ohio: True Conservative J.D. Winteregg vs. Speaker John BoehnerPosted by Jared Day on February 6, 2014
Many conservatives believe Speaker of the House John Boehner has worn out his welcome in Washington. Even more would like to seem him unseated now, forget about waiting for the May Primary or the General Election in November. There is currently a public petition available to sign and a campaign underway to take his gavel and replace him as Speaker.
Talk radio host Rusty Humphries is the spokesman for this new campaign to have Boehner unseated. He had these powerful words for the press:
“John Boehner has declared war on conservatives demanding lower taxes and limited government. Today we declare war on him. We intend to send a message to his fellow ‘Republicans In Name Only’ that such ideologically bankrupt leadership must come to an end.”
Boehner has been in office for 24 years, far too long in my opinion. He’s a textbook example of why term limits are necessary. Boehner is so entrenched with the establishment that, judging by his actions, the party lines have become blurred. It’s hard to tell who he is fighting against and who he’s fighting for. He is not adequately representing his constituents and he’s failing the American people as Speaker of the House.
Boehner plays too many Washington games, and does not play them well. He has came out on the losing end of every battle. He is so weak that even Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi bamboozle him. He doesn’t even try to defend himself. I see the only thing he’s done successfully is actually a failure, that is, acting as Obama’s shill. Boehner has only stood up to true conservatives in the GOP or ‘We The People’ that have had the unmitigated gall to question his actions. The nerve of us, right? Boehner often has unsavory things to say about anybody that criticizes him.
“There comes a point when people step over the line. When you criticize something and you have no idea what you’re criticizing, it undermines your credibility.”
Let’s be hopeful that there’s changes on the horizon. Yesterday was the filing deadline for the primaries. There are two men that have Boehner’s chair in their cross hairs. Eric Gurr is a 48-year-old Ohioan and a lifelong Republican. He was born and raised in Hamilton, a suburb of Cincinnati. Mr. Gurr is the CEO of a computer consulting firm based in West Chester, Ohio. He is married and has three children as well as two grandchildren. He and his family reside in fast-growing Liberty Township. He has never run for political office before. Gurr is for term limits, supports the Hastert Rule and is against amnesty. He believes the Tea Party and the conservative base of the party should drive the agenda.
The other challenger is J.D. Winteregg, born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. Both he and his wife are teachers living in Troy. He believes life begins at conception and taxpayer money should never be used to subsidize abortion. He is in favor of free market solutions to healthcare reform and would never vote to fund any element of Obamacare. Winteregg is vehemently opposed to NCLB and Common Core. I am personally very impressed with J.D.’s knowledge and passion for the major issues. He had this to say about Washington:
“Today, it seems as though authority is derived from Washington, and that we’re expected to do what we’re told. I believe authority comes from the people. The role of the representative should be to listen to the people and to advocate for them in Washington–not the other way around.”
If you’re not familiar with J.D. Winteregg yet, I encourage you to listen to this interview. If I were a Ohio resident, J.D. Winteregg would have my full support.
