I really had no doubt. I thought it MIGHT go to a second ballot with some Dems voting for crybaby.

Bachmann sold her vote for something, I wonder what?

I am a Conservative without a party!!

Tell me again why a 3rd party, The T.E.A. Party, would be a bad thing?

Without a republican consensus. And with the Dhimmicrats preparing to vote for boner rather than allowing a true conservative. Boner was a shooin.

I was a Democrat until they became Socialist then I became a Republican until they became Democrats & now I’m heading for Independent. I’m still a Conservative but the parties keep going left & the United States is in a sorry state.

So much for the Congressman on Fox this morning that was claiming he had 20 solid votes to prevent Boehner from winning and only needed 17. I bet his office was just downgraded to the broom closet and his only assignment is the Sub Committee for Capital Potted Plant Procurement.

If we had a Conservative Third Party, where would all the Liberal RINOs go? /sarc

Only a Liberal continues the charade that the GOP is “conservative”. We need a Conservative Third Party immediately

If he doesn’t find a way to hold the line on the AWB and the Dream Act, he’s done in 2014-one way or the other. there’s no reason for voting anymore at that point.

House Republicans just handed Boehner the sword he will use to hang over their heads from now on.

I hope they all don't get too comfortable in their committee chairs. Nothing is safe. Boehner already proved that.

Republicans behave like battered spouses. They always seem to run back to the only form of love that they know, and then keep making excuses for why it's okay.

We give the GOP all three Houses for 6 years... and domestically, they can't manage a single major victory.
So they follow it up with McCain... and give us Obama.
We give them massive gains in the House in 2010 to help stop Obama's major initiatives... and they pass them all anyway.
And they follow it up by nominating Romney, who runs the most limp-wristed campaign against the easiest target ever in Presidential politics.
And now they keep Boehner, who has enabled Obama more than anyone else in the GOP.

Fine. That's your choice. You can have your party. I'm done with it.

Their next move will be to vote in lock step with the Dems to eviscerate the 2nd amendment to the U.S. constitution. Count on it. Before the end of January. They’re going to sell us all out.

The only hope I have now is that Conservative Republicans - if there are any - surround Boehner and prevent him from making any decisions without such a committee agreeing or disagreeing with him.

He is obviously not up to the office of speakership on his own.

We were done when Boehner said on October 25th, 2010, “ We will not shut the government down” Took the option off the table and from that point forward, it has been easy for the dems to run the clock out and tehn the republicans cave on the last second of the last day.

They think they are really tough on spending because they wait until the end to cave, but, each time, THEY CAVE, and that’s all that counts.

Hey John - other than the GOPe - the rest of the world is laughing at you. Obama and Pelosi are laughing the loudest.
