Well, that only allows for four or five low lifes in the House and only one in the Sentate. I think the Speaker has made a serious miscalculation, or he’s just too eaten up with the “collegiality” nonsense to open his eyes and deal with reality.

Did he cry any? That 99% he’s talking about have sure done their part to put us in the hole.

Boner has GOT to go. He is suffering from a case of Creeping McCainism, the latent and insidious desire to ‘reach across the aisle’ in hopes that if he shows a smiling face to his adversaries, that they will ‘like’ him and maybe even play golf with him.

Per my tagline, Boner has OBVIOUSLY never heard of Finley Peter Dunne.

Ninety-nine percent of my colleagues are decent, honest people ....................................... Errr, its like saying 99 percent of the attorneys give the 1% a bad name. I highly question the words “decent and honest”. Greedy and crooked would be more appropo when it comes to the N/E and N/W, and Chicago.

Which leads to the question of which 4.34 of the other members of the House Boehner thinks are at least one of indecent, dishonest, or not trying to do the right thing for the country.

Sarah Palin and the Tea Party worked their butts off in 2010 to get the Pubs back in power, and won the House as a result.

Then we get this idiot back as Speaker, and the last two years have been a complete waste of time.

I am voting Republican from top to bottom on the ballot one last time in 70 days.

After we defeat Obama, I want a third party for Conservatives. The GOP has shown it will not be the vehicle for the restoration of America and adherence to its Constitution, which turns 225 years old next month.

The Republicans had better take note and no longer compromise their beliefs for the sake of a few, or this nation will not survive. Look at all the Democrats have achieved in the last few decades: health care, infiltrated the schools and governments, gays in the military, destroying the family unit through divorce, destroying marriage by having gays marry, abortion, and so much more. Romney had better not sing Kumbaya and compromise for the sake of healing a divided nation, the democrat party is no longer what it once was, it’s a socialist, communistic entity that despises both God and country! So, if Romney wins, he had better embrace God and His law and not the law of man! Boehner is wrong, the politicians fear neither God nor their constituents, they are in politics for the money, perks, and power, like most of them, he needs to go!

If he is Naive enough to believe that he is too stupid to be a leader.

We have a Speaker of the House who is only trying to suck up to his colleagues and is getting nothing done.

Lety’s give Boehner a courtesy flush and hope the smell goes away.

Really Mr. Boehner, 99%?

I think most Americans think only 1% are legit. I would even bet that most who are in Congress have created a felony to get where they are.

Pfffft....these asswipes are pathetic.

I wish all you folks bad mouthing my Representative, John Boehner had some data other than to just poke at him.

John has been one of the most consistent congressmen ever to hold a seat.... check his voting record instead of trying to make fun of him.

I think FR is better than this....

Let's see. How about, why hasn't Obamacare been defunded?

Or, why would Bonehead agree to that Super Committee with respect to the budget? By agreeing to the equally represented Super Committee, Bonehead gave up the hard earned majority of House Republicans.

Shall I go on?

Mike, please get help before it is too late!

Let’s give Boehner the benefit of the doubt.

Yes, he is stupid.

Yes, he cannot lead.

Yes, he cries at the drop of a hat.

Yes, he is a suck-up.

But, his statement may not reflect any of the above shortcomings: he just might be drunk again.

Mr. Boehner, if you REALLY believe that, please get the 99% together and come up with an answer to this question from Lord Monckton:

To all my Republican friends I say this. You will come to regret, and regret bitterly, the day you stood down when you should have stood up and stood to. You should have upheld the Constitution. You betrayed it. Not only you but your nation will pay dearly for your treason by inaction.

The world will miss the U.S. Constitution. You have let the torch in the hand of Liberty flicker and die. Why?

Mike, Obama has pushed forward more of his leftist agenda with John Boehner as Speaker than when Nancy Pelosi was. Telling!

And I know ObamaCare was when Pelosi was Speaker so no need to come back with that.
