Defeating John Boehner in 2012 is Priority #1

As a concerned American I have questioned the direction the Democratic party has taken in the 2012 elections.

I specifically want to know why the DNC, DCCC and Team Obama have not made unseating Representative John Boehner a #1 2012 election priority?

They had a good candidate in 2010 but did not back him.

What is wrong with you people? Are you stuck on stupid?

John Boehner is the General of the Republican Party in the House of Representatives. He needs to be defeated in 2012.

A national contribution campaign needs to be started to support the Democratic candidate running against John Boehner. A $5 donation is all that is required from every person on your mailing list.

Let's defeat all of the Republicans this November starting with John Boehner.
