Boehner: Iím Not Afraid of Losing My Speakership
Cybercast News Service ^ | December 21, 2012 | Terence P. Jeffrey

House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) said on Friday that he was not afraid of losing his speakership in the aftermath of the stunning defeat dealt to him on Thursday evening by House conservatives who refused to vote for his “Plan B” proposal to increase the income tax rate on income over $1 million.

When a reporter asked Boehner at a Capitol press conference whether he should be concerned about losing his speakership, Boehner said, “No, I’m not.”

“Listen, you’ve all heard me say this, and I’ve told my colleagues this, if you do the right things every day for the right reasons, the right things will happen,” Boehner said. …

So I guess he is not getting the message that he is doing the wrong things every day for the wrong reasons, in the face of wrong things being the result . . . alas for liberalism disease.

yes, it appears that Boehner is afflicted with that disease well cited by Michael Savage.

The fact that he has to even address this question is not a good sign for
Bonehead. The K-Street Money Changers will soon realize that he has
lost their usefulness to them. Then they will move to remove him with
another K-Street Money Changer Speaker like Cantor, before conservatives can select one of their own.

What a turd.

And a disgrace.

Two whole years wasted. Zippy re-elected in spite of being the worst President in our lifetimes.The hold on the House in thin, and we lost ground in the Senate.

With leaders like Boehner, and by extension, McConnell,there is no wonder how such a massive failure occurred.

New year, new Congress....new Speaker.

Works for me.

And Johnny Boy, don’t expect that Obama is going to ring you up for a round of golf anytime soon. Putz.

You hit the nail on the head! Boner is doing the wrong things for the wrong reason and ending up with the wrong results, AND getting shellacked & pounded into submission by the commie pig kenyan muzlim 0dumb0 with every battle. Boner is dumber than dirt along with being a cowardly wuss, and everyone knows it.

Time to move out of the way, Boner!

“I’ve told my colleagues this, if you do the right things every day for the right reasons, the right things will happen,” Boehner said.”

So, at what point in the distant future do you intend to start doing the right things for the right reasons, Boehner?

How about doing the right thing today: resign, and take Cantor and McCarthy with you. And feel good about it because you’d be doing it for the right reason: you’re incompetent and so are they.

It’s likely that the one who called for the donation doesn’t even know who Boehner is. He has low national name ID among those whom Rush Limbaugh euphemisticaqlly calls “the low-information voters.” They are legion.

Boehner, you weeping progressive surrender monkey, its way past time for you to be gone so we can have a conservative with balls in your place.

Oh how we have strayed from the days of Tom DeLay.

HA_HA, No one will take that job.

Call up your favorite congressman in his safe RED district and ask him to challenge Boner, and he wont!

The GOP is self destructing and Pelosi will take back the House 2014/2015 and none of them want to be in that seat when that happens. Better to sit by and let slow dim Boner take the fall.

Come up with one that will apply for Speaker, and HE/SHE would be the ONLY one with real courage, but they wont. They are like hiding scared rats playing out acts on the sinking ship.

Last time they called me I said “I gave all my money to Michele Bachmann because the RNC would not” and hung up on them.

“The plan” begins with a secret ballot. Not going to happen unless 80% majority agrees.

US Constitution Article 1 section 5:

Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such Parts as may in their Judgment require Secrecy; and the Yeas and Nays of the Members of either House on any question shall, at the Desire of one fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.

Interesting - he understands the concept and still can't bring himself to do the right things...
