This was before this Plan B debacle Bonehead and Cantor tried to force
on GOP members. All bets are off now.

The GOP Establishment has brought the upcoming electoral disaster upon themselves. It is going to be a Tsunami.

The GOP will lose its House majority and Democrats will get a near-filibuster proof Senate majority in 2016.

What’s more - the majority of Americans will blame the GOP (and Bush) for the country’s economic problems.

And, it gets better - President Clinton in 2016!

Now is the time to SMASH the GOP, send it to the ash heap, and build a genuine, grass-roots, CONSERVATIVE party.

Agreed. I am not going to vote holding my nose anymore. It does no good

IMHO, Boner was easily bought. Giving America away, from behind closed doors, is not conservative American politics.

His actions speak the truth.

Three weeks ago, this would have troubled me.

Now that I no longer give a smelly Obama about the RINOblican party, I ‘m fine.

good marks for playing a difficult hand in the current budget negotiations...

Complete utter hogwash. He gave away the store in the opening round, proceded to negotiate feverishly with HIMSELF, then the committee assignment krap. The fact is he puppets the ∅bama class warfare rhetoric, can't articulate individual property rights and personal freedom, and generally is NOT a good speaker to begin with. Oh yeah, he also has no charisma nor imagination as to battling the 'rats... just making deals to get along.

CAN him!

Once Boehner opened the door to raising taxes on anybody, he should have been forced to turn in his GOP card and his man card.

To: jimbo123; what's up; Arthurio; dan on the right

After this fiasco NO ONE, NO ONE will go near his job.

He just proposed a bill that would keep our taxes from going up that was defeated by the absolutely false claim that it was increasing taxes.

Now our taxes go up after this so called *tax increase* bill was defeated???

NO_ONE will take that job after this. When voters taxes go up in a few weeks there will be mobs with ropes and torches after the House Republicans. (because the bill they defeated was really not a tax increase bill but stopped them )

I always said Bohner was lame but no one could win with these demands.

Boehner was defeated by 50+ conservative GOP house members who told him to take his purge and shove it.

Cantor said he had the votes to pass Plan B.
He lied.

GOP establishment? It's past time blaming Boehner and the GOP Establishment. I blame House conservatives. The article said "Speaker John A. Boehner’s hold on the House’s top post appears secure after key conservative lawmakers said they don’t expect anyone to challenge him. " You mean there isn't one of them that will run against Boehner? Cowards - all of them.
