For me, the biggest problem so far? The RINO Congress and White House Communications.

Ultimately, the President is Captain of that particular ship, but it appears to me that the biggest problem to date is the combination of the RINO Congress and White House Communications.

The RINO Congress is obvious.

They've been lying for years: they never meant to get rid of Obamacare.  Under both Boehner and Ryan, they've been as compliant to Obama's policies and vision as any democrat-controlled House would have been or could have been.

When Ryan took over in October of 2015, I wrote:

Meet the new boss (Ryan) same as the old boss (Boehner)

As I've expected, the outcome of a Paul Ryan speakership will be no different that the abysmal outcomes of John "Doormat" Boehner.

Boehner will go down as among the worst Speakers our country has ever known, much like Mitch McConnell has been among the worst majority leaders and that simple idiot in the White House has rocketed to the top of the list of the very worst presidents to ever set foot in DC.

The only way for Ryan to be better than Boehner is for him to not BE Boehner.

So far, that ain't happening' and I don't expect that it WILL happen.
 RINO's, as a rule, are liars. Boehner is no exception.
Vote Violates Another Boehner Pledge...

HOUSE OF HORRORS: Massive Debt, Budget Deal Introduced In Dead of Night...

This is an example of his lie about a 72 hour rule for legislation.  He's dumping a document 144 pages long that increases the debt ceiling on his own caucus and then expecting them to vote on it without hearings and without giving the promised 72 hour availability before it comes up for a vote.
As AP reports, House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is pushing for a Wednesday vote, this would be yet another instance in which he has broken his promise to give members and the public three full days—72 hours—to read legislation before voting on it.

“We will ensure that bills are debated and discussed in the public square by publishing the text online for at least three days before coming up for a vote in the House of Representatives,” Boehner’s “Pledge to America” reads. “No more hiding legislative language from the minority party, opponents, and the public. Legislation should be understood by all interested parties before it is voted on.”

In a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February 2010, Boehner also promised that three full days meant “at least 72 hours.”

By scheduling a vote on Wednesday—any time before 11:36 p.m. on Thursday, actually—Boehner would be violating that pledge.
Our worthless cardboard cutout of a congresswoman will certainly vote for this monstrosity; after all, it gives Obama everything he wants, funds Planned Parenthood; keeps Obamacare rolling and further bankrupting us because, as someone far smarter than I once opined, if Congress didn't want a budget deficit, there wouldn't BE a budget deficit.  Besides, Cathy McMorris, who built Herrera out of spare parts lying around the office, owns her like the 13th Amendment was never passed.

The budget itself is another leftist nightmare, and Ryan is supporting it.

He tap dances by whining about the process and then fails to take the action (oppose it) needed to FIX the very process he opposes (allegedly... I don't expect him to be any different) by supporting this same budget... which REALLY means that he had no problem with the process... otherwise, he WOULD oppose this hideous insanity.

And this is yet another sign of the RINO insanity infesting DC.

Ryan's only hope was to be different.  Our only hope is that not only would Boehner go, but the entire group of lackeys surrounding him in the leadership go with him.

Fat chance.

Meet the new boss... same as the old boss.
It didn't take a genius to figure this out: Ryan was an establishment hack and the Establishment still controls Congress even if they cannot control the President. They are bent on destroying the President as much as... and perhaps more than... the democrats themselves.

Of course, it was democrat buffoonery that put the left in this position to begin with, and they've been oh-so-cooperative by virtue of exhibiting  their own level of tone-deafness and stupidity that has, to date, frequently made the GOP House Congress look like political geniuses in comparison... and how low of a bar is that?

For his part, the President has to work around Congress.  When a bill comes up that the people support (Which, coincidentally, was NOT the most recent failed RINO attempt to keep Obamacare which, thankfully, failed due to Establishment and democrat stupidity) the White House should be taking a planned, disciplined STRATEGIC effort to the key House districts that supported the President to force a groundswell of opposition to the stupidity of the recalcitrant Congressional Members in question.

The ACA repeal effort served as a vital tool for the President.  He now knows who the members of Congress are who actually come under the broad heading of Game Players (The Establishment) and who the members of principle actually are (The Freedom Caucus and their supporters.)

He now knows the competent from the incompetent.

Where he (The President) screwed up was by failing to nail Ryan over the most recent successful House repeal effort that also passed the Senate: there was zero reason not to run that same bill again... except for the most obvious:  That Congress only ran that bill symbolically and they never intended for it to pass.

It was, essentially, gamesmanship.,  And we the people, were the ones they've been gaming.

Mr. President, get your act together.  Make this happen or you're doomed politically... and so are we.
