Skip to comments.Boehner is a trustfull MAN!

I have just seen Boehner pronouncement about November 2nd.
I must recognize, while this guy is a simpathetic fellow, I did not thrust him well, I mean, too much over squared bounds and PC.
But I saw this man almost tear-drop over there. This is not weakness, this is PROUD TO BE THERE and be finally able to do something over this situation.
I do think you Americans may count on him for the next two years to push hard over democrats. Furthermore, he will now be backed by conservatives like himself.
How on earth could you not trust someone who is 1 of 12 kids? He obviously knows how to fight without looking like he’s fighting. Go for it John.
He is a good man but this will make no difference. Good men need to work hard to get things done. Evil ones can destroy at a moment’s notice. The country is still doomed and there is no possibility of things turning around. Ever.
I think that all of the disdain on this board for Boehner is really unwarranted. The guy has been in a difficult position...almost paralyzed by the margin in the house.
Now he will get a chance to lead. We need someone who is diplomatic (not a nancy “in your face” pelosi). No one wants a jackass in there.
I think Boehner is exactly who we need: promote our ideas, issues, legislation, but not with blood dripping from our mouths.
we’ll see......NO COMPROMISE!!
I think we need a real election for Speaker and not just let him become speaker just because
PT Barnum saw you coming.
Really...he is trustful?...really.
Have you been asleep or are you just so much of a sucker that you see a tear and you fold your cards?
What is Obozo cries...will you then say he is trustful?
If Boehner is speaker we are screwed. The GOP establishment has already started to try to marginalize the Tea Party movement - check out Rove today.
Question: Would you buy a used car from a guy that looks like Boehner?
I’d fall down running the other way. If you trust any politician, left, right, center etc you only have yourself to blame for what happens.
Yea, trust him while you watch him like a hawk.
I watched his speech live last night. I really felt for him when he was breaking down. Never seen anything like that. He was absolutely touched about the American dream.
And it’s disgraceful that the Dems attacked him as some chain smoking country clubber. When in fact he’s a blue collar guy from Ohio who grew up in a hard scrabble neighborhood, tending bars, sweeping floors, etc. He’s self-made.
Let's just say skeptical. Boehner will have to put his money where his mouth is.
“Trust, but verify.”
“I’ll never let you down,” Boehner told the tea party crowd.
no blood dripping from our mouths???? You mean not someone like Nancy Legosi?
And in the morning he sits down with the effete facade that appears to be Mr. Ssspiffy, Eric Cantor.
I agree. We cannot permit Boehner to be Speaker.
That's not very sporting. Why should he do all the work ?
Cantor will prove a sellout pretty soon, I’m pretty damn sure.
I would like to see a real, open race for speaker instead of just guving it to Boehner because it’s his turn. Let’s hear what the candidates wqnt to do.
With Boehner I fear it will be SOWS (same old washington ... stuff)
Yup, there is no hope at all, the best we can do is eat our pistols and end the misery, all is lost forever and ever. Jim was right, this is the end.
Not too big a fan of Boehner, but he does have a certain advantage. The media is going to do the most they can to demonize him as a big, spooky bogeyman (a la Gingrich or Delay), yet there’s something so quirkily easy-going about him, they might very well not succeed.
I think he’s great. Anyone who’s critical of his tears should try being Obama’s whipping boy for two years, should experience the futility and frustration of trying to have a say, then should see the tables finally turn.
Because true trust and respect are EARNED, not GIVEN. I sincerely hope if Boehner is elected to be the next Speaker he earns my trust and respect through Conservative leadership, but after following politics closely for more than 30 years I certainly don't expect him to be anything but just another politician. He wanted the job. Now, it's time to put up or shut up.
Go back and read the post... note the spelling of a certain word. :-P
FWIW, I don’t trust him. He didn’t get his job by being honest and forthright. I don’t recall a single instance of him “ringing the alarm” over the scope of federal reach. In other words, instead of “it’s none of the feds business,” he seems to be of a mind of delivering a smaller sting than his political opponent.
Best advice is to listen to Reagan... trust but verify. I do not trust him... but the repubics will elect him and we have to hold his feet to the fire... but I predict he will cave and pass parts of obama’s agenda. I PRAY that I am wrong.
Who ever is the leader will end up being a spear catcher. I don’t see how Boehner will not be good at being able to deflect and not let the WH destroy the house members like Clinton did. Why ruin a Bachmann, Ryan or Pence here?
Boehner was part of the problem. He is part of the problem. He will continue to be part of the problem. There is simply no way he will part of the solution. And that little bit of psychodrama last night not only will not make it so, it is part of the proof that he simply will not be part of the solution.
We need somebody else, and not this sad sack.
That's how participatory government is supposed to work.
I’m willing to give Boehner a chance, considering what he has had to work with and against up until now. But I will not cut cut him slack if he proves to be just another establishment Republican.
Who we need to think about purging is Steele, Rove and all their ilk. Rove did irreparable damage in Delaware while Steele crowed about firing Nancy and basically went on to say he was happy with what ever gains we can make. I say go for total victory. Meanwhile Stu Spencer, Repub campaigner, is spouting off to that the Tea Party cost us the Senate, never mind the gains we made. With friends like these Boehner is the least of our problems.
There should be consequences for “compassionate conservatives” who screwed America. Why should we trust him?
Pretty much everybody in politics is corrupt. Lower your expectations right now!
The fact of the matter is that Boehner is not as insane as Pelosi. One can can’t hope for better than that.
The country is still doomed and there is no possibility of things turning around. Ever.
I wanna party with you!
So why do even bother getting out of bed or posting on this forum is all is lost and hopeless?
I actually started to have some gope last night after seeing this guy tear up while talking about how great our country is and at the opportunity to get this country back on the right track. This guy is no actor. He’s the real deal.

That’s a good question.
Exactly.He is the older of 12 kids who grew up living over the bar his grandfather owned.He knows all about hard work and struggle.He put himself through college working and going to school when he could afford it. the first one in his family to go.I read that it took him something like 6 years because of the money issue.I like him and want to see someone like him in the speakership.Those of you naysayers are crazy.
Well, he was crying because he’s achieved his lifelong dream of being Speaker of the House - while I applaud his personal success, by itself it won’t do anything for the country.
I heard some CNN talking heads praising him - comparing him favorably to Tip O’Neil. These were supposedly CNN’s trained conservative heads; but what it tells me is that the media believes that Boehner can be easily bought and sold. I hope they’re wrong.
I like him as well! Didn’t Obummer give him the finger after speaking at some big meeting? (the meeting that Eric Canter brought the health care bill and placed it on the table)
