At which point Obama will fly out to the deck of an aircraft carrier with a banner that reads ‘Mission Accomplished!’

Hasn’t he embarrassed us enough already?
He must want more golf time with Obama, but as “not weepy speaker” he won’t be welcome.

My guess is that he knows there will be no point whatsoever to pretend there is an opposition party.

Obama will rule all by his lonesome, and all by decree.

Obama will simply make it all official beginning next year instead of pretending we are “the world’s oldest Constitutional democracy” with 57 states.

Not to mine. I suspect he's committed to amnesty, and understands that this means he won't be re-elected. But his backers have promised him a cushy retirement in exchange for getting it done.

"That brought a smile to my face."
-Is this because he wouldn't win anyway. Makes me worried about what he plans to do with issues involving immigration and Syria.

He perhaps is forecasting the coming election....cannot be speaker if the other party is in charge.

How about this, leave now.

maybe good, but that means he's deep in zeros hip-pocket now. It might be NSA blackmail he has on him, or he sees the writing on the wall. However, that means he has no worries about holding his job, so can do whatever he is directed to do with impunity...

Good to see him go, but worried what he will do in the interim...

My guess is that his masters in the administration have decided that they've wrung all of the usefulness out of his sorry ass and have dismissed him.

Obama: "You've served us well, John, but now, it's time for you to go."

This says something about an expectation of winning his seat. He expects to keep it. What does he do after he wins it? Step down?

It also says he expects to keep the House in republican hands. And along with keeping his seat, he expects to step down?

In short, he wants to hand pick the successor. Cantor?

The IRS is STILL targeting the Tea Party.. The NSA has all the goods for blackmail, and electronic technology to tamper with election results. I am not hopeful of what happens in 2014.

Boehner should DEMAND that 0bama stop IMMEDIATELY the politicization of the IRS or impeachment hearings commence immediately. So much for 0bama's promise that the illegal targeting by the IRS be resolved in 30 days. It's STILL happening.

He should give up his seat before the election so Ohio can replace him with a conservative.
