Boehner has bee too bitter a supercillious pill for true conservatives to swallow. He should never have served.

Boehner is a strategic idiot dedictated to the destruction of America simply because he detests Tea Party conservatives. Boehner was finished as speaker years ago.

I posted this on Boehners facebook page ::: There is a rumor circulating that John Boehner will step down as House Speaker after the 2014 elections. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage the old drunk to DO IT NOW while the so-called republican party has a chance to preserve a little of what remains of the United States. I am not sure what Obama and his minions of the NSA (hi guys) have on him but it must be substantial for him to cave in as he has done in the last 2 years. Retire John and then slip into obscurity as you (we) deserve.

My thoughts, exactly.

With the way the Dims are going to rig the '14 elections with fraud up the wazoo, Pelosi will probably re-take over the Speaker duties, so Boehner can ride off into the sunset to live off his pension (plus whatever bribes he's socked away in his secret accounts).

Yeah but he's also the Majority Whip and considers himself the next in line.

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.

I suspect you're right, and that's he also committed to seeing that the continuing resolution passes without defunding Obamacare among other things. A John Boehner who doesn't care about re-election is even more dangerous.

Bad news is he no longer has to fear losing the next election. He can now do pretty much whatever he wants.

There you go. But then again, who wants the job of leading the House Republican caucus???? WHO?

No matter who they are, they'll be ripped to shreds. Either by the media or the right...or both.

DO.IT.NOW.

Why wait...The conservatives NEED these next 14 months to construct some type of Constitutionalist Party. A Party that truly listens to the electorate, truly represents the whole nation's needs/wishes/security/prosperity in its adherence to our Bill Of Rights. The next 14 months to derive an adequate, constructive, message and booster a competent (fire-in-their-belly) messenger.

He’ll “step down” later after he pushes amnesty through now.

Political posturing to take the heat off.

At the rate the Republicans are going, he probably isn’t going to be in a position to be speaker anyway. He needs to step down now to give the Republicans some chance of retaining the House in ‘14.

The House has a whole line-up of feckless non-Conservative people ready to take over, Cantor being the first in line. It’s his turn you know.

BTW, is someone going to challenge him in the primary?

Kind of an ambiguous title. He’s going to run for re-election one more time, but no more? Or he’s going to run for his seat in 2014 and then step down when he’s re-elected?

Or, is he not running for re-election?

Still time to get more cash to be for ramming amnesty through. The tan man spent all summer fund raising instead of opposing the kenyan.

He will pocket that cashola and retire to the beach in Naples. This really shouldn’t be a surprise. He has been telegraphing retirement for some time. He’s whipped and cashing out.

Cantor is not the Majority Whip, as you assert. He is the Majority Leader.

Cantor is a bright and capable leader, telegenic and, not unimportantly, Jewish.

In any case, the article is garbage. Boehner has made no such decision.

Agreed. The letter Cantor released yesterday was an outstanding preemptive capitulation on Syria before the House debate even began. He would make a fine “leader” of the Surrender Party.
