I wonder if it’s too late to move to Ohio and how many people would we need...
Boner is too busy looking for his gonads to run, ya think?
Good. Boner needs to go south. (Hmmmm, not a play on words either.) LOL.
I usually hate Boner. But he did send a de-fund 0bamaCare budget to the Senate, and has stood firm so far on shutting down the government instead of funding communism on the hoof.
So, for this microsecond, I’m willing to give him a pass. The moment he caves (which I expect imminently), I’ll back his opponent.
But if by some miracle he sticks to principles for the first time in his life, I think we’ll have forced a spine into the crybaby after all. In which case, it’s hard to back an opponent to someone who finally does what we’ve been asking.
So I’ll wait a bit.
Rep. Boehner (R-Ohio) worked behind the scenes earlier this year to address confusion over a provision in the Affordable Care Act that would force members of Congress and their aides into the exchanges. In fact, if one were to go by the leaks, which were first given to Politico, it appears that the offices of Boehner and Reid regularly coordinated to exempt Congress from the health care law.

I grew up in Boehner’s district. As appealing as it is to replace him, it’s not going to happen. He’s an entrenched career politician and basically owns the Ohio political machine - including the local GOP. The GOP in the state is NEVER going to allow the Speaker of the House to be primaried out of a job. The implications to the GOP Elites would be huge. They will work to sabotage any rivals to him. I salute the bravery of this young man to step up. But unless he has unlimited funds to burn away he has virtually no chance to unseat Boehner.
Good! Boehner needs to GO
Almost 4 years of failure to defund Obamacare is proof enough that Boehner has been a failure as the Speaker of the House.
Boehner skated by during this battle ONLY because Reid wanted to shutdown the Government, and couldnt care less about taking Boehner to the cleaners, as usual. Thank you, Senator Reid.
The next battle is what Reid is preparing for: Crushing all Republican opposition to a large increase in the Federal Budget.
Reids plan is to move quickly, (Obama is scandal ridden, and has but 3 years left if he is not Impeached), to enshrine Obamacare as a single payer, Federal Insurance system.
Then Federal Obamacare Insurance premiums can be raised by the IRS anytime the Democrats need to extract more money from the taxpayers.
Thus, Congress would not be involved in this tax money raising scheme.
As for the Republicans, Reid is unconcerned about them, as he has always been able to beat them EVERY TIME.
Well, every time that Boehner has been Speaker of the House.
After nearly 5 years on the job, Sobber of the House Boehner still hasnt figured out that Reid and Obama are permanently emotionally stunted at the 2 to 4 year old, temper tantrum level.
Boehner must be the most stupid man in our sorry Federal Government.
Boehner was led kicking and screaming to not cave-in to Reid. That is to his credit, but just barely.
Boehner was waaaaaaaaaay to timid with 2 year old Reid, and damn near gave up on staying on offense by continually trying to cave in to 2 year old Reid.
Thankfully, Reid wanted this shutdown, convinced Obama to want it too, and avoided the temptation to take Boehner to the cleaners again. Thank you Senator Reid!
Boehner has no ideas left now so he must be replaced ASAP.
This First Reid Shutdown is a blessing in disgust.
Ignore the slings and arrows that the fans of Obamanation hurl at us.
They enjoy making noise and Federal messes, and they are good at it.
We Conservative Republicans have the responsibility of adult leadership to the 53 % of the voters who still pay their Federal Income Taxes. We have a lot of work to do!
The House needs to get rid of Boehner, replace him with a fighter, say Newt or Allen West (the House rules allow members to choose anyone, even non-members to be Speaker).
Then the new Speaker needs to appoint 3 Special Prosecuters : 1.) Benghazi; 2.) IRS; 3.) NSA.
This is a perfect time to clean up the mess that Obama, Reid and Pelosi have made, abolish Obamacare, and start to wean Americans off of the Federal Welfare teat.
Let the fans of Obamanation scream and holler, for that is what they have been doing for the last 5 years. Let them have their brand of hate-filled fun. We have work to do.
It is time for the Republican adults to lead the juvenile RINOs to clean up the dung heap that is truly an Obamanation.
Sometimes one has to work with the crew that one is saddled with.
Damn the Democrats! Full speed ahead!
I’m surprised it took this long.
Howdy freaken Doodie would be better than this pos Boehner.
