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. …

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.

...if you do the right things every day for the right reasons, the right things will happen,” Boehner said. …

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