Get out now!!
How about tomorrow?
Tomorrow works for me!
He’s probably pretty sure the democrats are going win the house so that’s why he’s not stepping down now. It will also prevent an embarassing challenge by true conservatives in the house. Why bother when they know he’s leaving.
Not only “retirement” ==lobbyist largesse and gucci gulch for him with his “connections”.
Our modern day Bob Michel type bull hocky repub.
Oh, how I wish the reporter from the Guardian (who’s friends with Snowden) would release the information on Boner.
Way not soon enough.
Rand, Ted, can you make this guy disappear..like this week?
Why would he think that? I think it's very unlikely that the GOP will lose the House in 2014.
Ironically 17 Republican patriots need to say they will vote against any Republican speaker if amnesty passes.
They need to declare support for Pelosi.
They may lose the house over Syria. No democrat will lose over this issue. Lots of republicans will.
After the 2014 midterms? Get bent, Boehner.
You need to pack your bags and get out now, you appeasing, back-stabbing, worthless Democrat!
Depends on what goes in regards to the Middle East, Syria in a special way. The Dems could very well end up losing big.
“Newt Gingrich. Probably the best speaker since Ronald Reagans time.”
I completely agree.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!
Why wait. Step down now and let someone who can lead have the damn job. I’m sick and tired of his duplicitous ways.
Like many programs that were instituted for good, we now have example upon example how good programs have been turned and become "Weaponized" by the people in power in this country to control or destroy those who would oppose them. I won't call them democrats or republicans; I'll call them traitors, spies, and saboteurs. They have infiltrated and taken over (appointed to) the IRS, NSA, DHS, DOJ, EPA, you name it. Those in the government (civil servants) that might be in the side of right find suddenly their dark side is known and now is being used to control them. Either they turn or get burned (one way or the other). Ask General Petraus about that sometimes...
I see pre-WWII Nazi Germany in these works, and the possible beginnings of a French Revolution on this continent in response. This is why the racial diversion is so important to these people, because if ordinary people really started looking around they will see the truth of what is happening to them. This is why our schools have been dumbed down, because if our children knew our history, they would know they were being robbed of their freedom, liberty, and birthright.
John Freaking Kerry, telling us now that the arabs will pay for us to bomb Syria (and maybe more)? Since when was the US military for hire, especially to our enemies? Since when did our military (and who knows what other parts of the government) become mercenaries and whores to the arabs?
Wake up America! Knowledge is power, and the lack thereof is slavery. Teach your children well, or else the government (and those who have bought it) will teach them the meaning of dhimmitude firsthand...!
He does not represent OH’s finest hour!
Hey, Maelstorm , he’s not really duplicitous at all but reliably Democrat.
Boehner makes Bob Michel of liberal IL look like a really dedicated Republican!
An alternative possibility is that he’s trying to triangulate and pull Obama to the right in any compromises that take place in the next 6-8 months.
The rationale being that moving to the right to get Boehner onboard represents the best chance of Obama salvaging his failed second term. Because a new GOP Speaker in 2015 will be a wild card and a Conservative unwilling to move even an inch Left with a lame duck President.
This assumes that Obama is really a Clintonian pragmatist. Which we know he ISN’T.
Can you make it today instead, John? Pleeeeeeeze!!!!
I hope other GOP house and senate leaders such Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, and Mitch McConnell will take a hint and step aside so we might have a chance to put conservatives back in charge of the party. Yeah, it may already be too late but we have to start with purging the RINO’s from leadership positions.
He’s whipped, alright...like an abused wife returning to the abuse. Benghazi Barry, Valerie Jarrett and the NSA have spun a web around everyone, but cowards resign themselves to blackmail over the best interest of their countrymen.
I feel sorry for his children and his grandchildren—he leaves a “legacy” of cowardice and deceit-—AND, pansy-ism.
But, I don’t forgive him his self-centeredness—we seem to have a great many narcissists in Washington these days.
May he reap what he has sown.
“Hate” is a strong word, but it comes pretty close to what informed Republicans feel toward this traitorous scoundrel. Maybe he finally got the message with the calls coming into his office over Syria.
The problem is that all of his first lieutenants are every bit as onerous. Cantor? LOL He’s a freakin’ fraud, too. Bob
How about effective ***yesterday***? What a disgrace and disappointment this former “revolutionary” has been. Yes, he once called himself that.
When he does, who will be the new MINORITY Leader?
So he can protect Zerocare
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
And then we get who? Ryan? Yay.
Regardless, step down now, Boehner.
I understand ALL of the “leadership” is identical to Boehner in very way.
Ryan is as arrogant in action if not in demeanor as is Boehner.
He should realllllly step down right now!
“not soon enough”
An early announcement like that weakens bone-head too. When the King is about to perish, courtieors start trying to figure out who the heir is and how to get in the heir’s good graces.
Yeah. I don't expect a good replacement, but the sooner Boehner goes, the better.
Lyndon Johnson? ...or LaRouche?
lol I wouldn’t go that far.
I find it to be most welcome news, Boner makes Hastert and Newt look good in comparison, I think Pelosi removed his balls and keeps them around her neck with her pearls.
I hope Cantor doesn't end up as the replacement. He is certain to seek the position and be the frontrunner.
Can anyone think of someone we'd actually like to have the job that might run against him?
It will be Cantor, the GOPe has an awful case of “next in line” itis.
The caucus would be too afraid not to elect Cantor, as he wants to be the first Jewish Speaker. You’d hear cries of anti-Semitism everywhere. Several years ago, I’d have supported him. Now, he needs to be primaried as he has become a part of the problem.
Someone awsome [on borders, diplomacy, and Obama-care — bone-head hates him] and really outspoken on Hannity might be interested:
Rep. Gohmert: Closing embassies made US look ‘like a bunch of ...
Aug 5, 2013 ... Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Monday that the Obama ... Gohmert, guest-hosting on Sean Hannity’s radio program Monday, said the ...
[end of google copy]
Gohmert gets all kinds of people to talk with him on the radio. Seems well connected from what little I know.
Bone-head left us plenty of time to expose Cantor. All we need to do is go ‘anti-Cantor’ although I personally hadn’t heard much about him on talk radio. Being ‘anti’ someone is easier than being for someone. If reps catch enough negative buz about Cantor long enough, along with why we’re sick of Bone-head, then someone will step forward.
A good reason for term limits! On with the Liberty Convention!
