CNS News ^ | 07/22/2013 | Susan Jones

Asked repeatedly if he favors a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal aliens, Boehner told CBS's "Face the Nation" that his job is not to take a stand, but to let the House "work its will."

Matthew 27:24

When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this man's blood," he said. "It is your responsibility!"

Boehner is a poor excuse for leadership. He needs to go as speaker.

Interesting. I always heard the House is to operate as a dictatorship and the Senate is to allow the voice of the minority.

Seems they may be swapping places.

So, leadership is to vote present ONLY so that no one will think you have a bias one way or the other ... isn’t that the same modus opernedi of little barry bastard boy now running the White Hut regime?

He’s the poorest excuse for a Speaker and a man I’ve ever seen! Much as I loathe her, I have to say Pelosi was more of a man than Boehner is! Unfortunately, she managed to accomplish a lot in her tenure as Speaker. What has he done?

Not even close. He's the HOUSE speaker, not the GOP speaker. There's already a house majority leader who one would think would be the cheerleader for GOP in the house. There is ample precedence for the Speaker of the House representing himself as at the least near neutral and not even voting unless his vote is needed. The Speaker of the House's job is to be 3rd in line for the presidency and to keep legislation flowing in the house first, representing his party 2nd.

Who do you represent in the House, Boehner? "The Will Of The House"? Is that who elected you?

” HIS JOB! HIS JOB!!

1) Collecting $236,000.00/yr salary

2) Collecting free drinks

3) collecting free meals in 5 star restaurants.

4) Collecting $1,500,000 salary as a lobbyist, when we throw him out.

Eventually, collecting a $160,000 yr pension (if there is still a country left to pay it)

You know, I may not always be a good leader, but at least I am generally smart enough to figure an issue out over several decades enough to get it right. And then I’ll take a stand.

This is one clueless person. Why is he in a leadership position in the first place. This is when he should be leading the way. Instead we have the Obama model playing out, leading from behind.

This guy IS one big fat behind IMO.

Ah John Boner.

Reminds me of a line from a movie called Wonderland about John Holmes.

The line went something like “Thirteen inches of c*ck and no balls.”

Sounds just like our non-speaker.

I wonder if we have a whole cadre of psychologists on staff in the House, so people can get right with the psychobabblers before they make a move. That would sure answer a lot of questions.

Being absolutely unable to rid ourselves of a “Leader” like Boehner is what is wrong with the Republican party. If we can’t even get rid of a pathetic excuse for a leader as this then it is no wonder the party is a failure.

And as difficult as this issue is, me taking a hard position for or against some of these issues will make it harder for us to get a bill.

And he wants a bill because?

1) He wants senate Dems and RINOs to s***-can it.

2) He wants to go to conference.
