According to his office this morning, he is not preventing anything and is very supportive of Issa.
For what that is worth.
Timing is everything.
Someone said there was an election coming up...
Boehner’s support doesn’t mean much, but a lack of opposition on his part would. If we can believe him. It would be great!
The support from Boehner is tepid at best. He and Cantor have indicated that they are afraid that the contempt citation will pull the Republicans “off” their message!
Two observations for Boehner and Cantor:
1) How can you be pulled “off message” when no one in the country has a flippin’ clue what your message is? You guys have let the Democrats and the media define the argument for years, which is why your support continues to erode.
2) The Attorney General of the United States, acting in collusion with the Department of Homeland Security, and possibly with the Executive Branch, concocted a plan to force law abiding gun dealers to sell weapons to straw buyers who then took them across the border and handed them to members of drug cartels where they have been used to kill hundreds of people, including at least two members of US Law Enforcement. This is THE biggest story of the entire campaign and will awaken and enrage millions of moderate and conservative voters...If you don’t understand that, you have no business being in leadership positions!
“According to his office this morning, he is not preventing anything and is very supportive of Issa.

My Representative (on the committee) assured me that Boehner is on board and was mostly concerned about timing.
