I say, instead of eating our own we should give John a chance.
I say he’s earned the chance to lead. He’s kept the GOP caucus together when it would have been very easy for members to want to get on the O train. Now, just because he was good at opposition, doesn’t mean he’ll be a good leader, but he deserves the chance.
I want a tiger in there. Some one as nasty as Pelosi, without an ounce of compromise. Someone who will punch back and win.
I say that I very much like Boehner. The comment about his tan sounds like what I have heard Democrats say.....a sort of superficial low blow. I like Pence and Ryan but have NO problem with Boehner and think he definitely has the charisma to be the House leader. .
I say if we start acting like Democrats with this infighting bulls**t and people concerned with inside baseball crap instead of simply going forward and giving people a chance before we start firing them, the dems will take back the house in 2012.
Boehner is the back room slugger we need.
i would for for the gop senate leader first to be honest. The fact that we didn’t win senate majority and he failed in helping us get that, he should be removed from leadership
Couldn’t agree more.
Next two years will be a lot easier for you if you remember “stupid party”.
Will never happen.
And cross Pence off your list. He’s already stated he doesn’t want a leadership position and plans on stepping down from his current one.
Couldn’t agree more.
Next 2 years will be easier on you if you remember “stupid party”.
Boehner is a nice humble man.
But not the leader we need to deal with the kenyan marxist and his appointed politburo of czars. Not to mention that weasel jackwagon Harry Reid.
How about we let him do his job?
Westmoreland said his caucus presuming it takes control of the House come November aims to pass spending bills that Obama is likely to veto. He predicted Republicans would not be able to override such a veto, creating a standoff that could cause Congress to grind to a halt.
We have put Band-Aids on some things that need to be cleaned out, he said. "That is going to take some pain. Theres going to have to be some pain for us to do some things that weve got to do to right the ship."
Boehner now says that we have to understand that the President sets the nation’s agenda, and that the message of last night is that he should change course.
Doesn’t sound like a leader to me. Sounds like a follower.
The fact you didn't demonstrates you don't know much about Republicans.
So, no, just because a guy looks like he's tanned ~ he was the leader during this election when the House Of Representatives went over to the Republicans.
His first concerns were the fact the Democrats neglected to pass a budget this year (with 13 major appropriations bills left hanging).
I think he has a plan ~ Obama's head is going to pop when he sees it, and the House has all the power in this one.
If anyone needs the boot in the current leadership it’s Eric Cantor. He’s arrogant, went around with Romney on his “listening tour” last year where they did all the talking, pushing Romney Care as a viable health care solution. He is not a loyal limited government conservative and has no business being the majority leader, unless of course you want statist Republicans running everything.
Obviously this meant a lot to Boehner. Give him the opportunity.
This election proved we haven’t been right on on all of our choices.
We need to be tough, but we also need to resist being thugs and bullies.
I’m sorry, but Jospeh Goebbles is not available.
You would throw away a long-serving respected member with a 96% ACU rating for someone with no proven ability in leadership?
What are you thinking.... or drinking ?
If I hear one more thing about his tan I will scream!!! Believe it or not, there are some skin conditions which are alleviated by tanning. Do you know for sure he does not have a medical problem or do you just go along with what the media says? BTW, my mom is italian, she can get a tan walking to the mailbox, so what?
He is one of 12 kids, whose family owns a bar, the only one who went to college, worked his way through school, got a job and became President of that company! I have not read where he is awarding contracts to his family members to make them rich, either.
Give him a chance!
You are a dullard!
