"It wont even be close, Boehner said.
I frankly think Im in better shape with my own caucus than I have been any time in the last three years," Boehner said. "I think they understand me better.
Boehner reiterated that the condo purchase "has nothing to do with my future.

I thought Sarah Palin was next in line.Hey, she did predict all of this Kaos we are seeing in Russia this week.
LOL!! FUJB!! This guy is totally and completely out to lunch.
The oompah-loompah is toast.
Sadly, he is probably correct. The more things change ...
Allow me to translate...”I have the files on my caucus.”
Retirement home so that he can “spend more time” in a tanning booth?
John Boehner buys Florida condo
Boehner purchased the condo in February 2014 for $835,000.
By JAKE SHERMAN |
Speaker John Boehner and his wife have bought a condominium in Marco Island, Fla., a tony vacation town in southern Florida.
The Ohio Republican purchased the condo in February 2014 for $835,000, according to public records filed in Florida. He put down $185,000 and took out a mortgage for the rest, according to public records.
This area of Florida has been the Boehners family vacation spot for many years, and rather than continue to put money into vacation rentals year after year, they decided to buy a condo, said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. Their home is in West Chester, Ohio, and will continue to be.
Indeed, Boehner does spend a lot of time in Florida and has raised money there recently for the National Republican Congressional Committee. Its not rare for congressional leaders to buy vacation homes many members of Congress are wealthy.
Boehner bought a unit in Marco Islands Tampico Condominium, which is described as Cape Marcos luxury residence.
The building rises 14 stories over the sugar-white shores of the Gulf of Mexico, offering spectacular gulf and island views from gracious terraces, according to a description on a local real estate website.
News that Boehner bought the condo was first reported by the conservative Breitbart News.
If that is the case Mr. Boner why the fug should I cast a ballot for ANY Republican if you are the sorry ass weeper in charge?
I am very familiar with that building. He bought one of the least expensive condo units.
There, I fixed it.
I hope and PRAY that the voters in this serial office holder GET the point of what he has been doing, PLUS the fact that NOBODY should make a CAREER out of an elected office.
C’mon Ohio Conservatives...We’ve got to get rid of this smug RINO.
Our Tea Party group is supporting J.D. Winteregg. Here’s his site: http://jdwinteregg.com/
Although we live across the state from him, we will travel to his district to go door to door for him and will donate to his campaign.
“If that is the case Mr. Boner why the fug should I cast a ballot for ANY Republican if you are the sorry ass weeper in charge?”
I second that however you forgot “drunken” Should read drunken weeper
When he is a lobbyist he can trade up.
What most people don’t know if that the Speaker of the House is not constitutionally required to be an elected representative.
So, even if he loses his re-election bid, he can still remain in his position. Extremely unlikely, but still out there as a possibility.
I’m reaching the point now where I really loathe Boehner... It amazes me how a man so spineless and woefully inept at his job can have such a cocky attitude about getting nominated for a third term as House Speaker, given that he received barely a narrow majority of support from his own party for a second term in 2012. The truth is, this man has NO successes to speak of and is absolutely HORRIBLE at articulating principles and polcies that inspire ANYBODY. I’m confident the House will contain more conservatives after the 2014 midterm elections and look forward to having a fight to oust this worthless RINO from his completely undeserved leadership perch.
People want this to end? Give amnesty to all house members for any transgressions and boot Bohener like George Clooney.
Surround yourself with enough feeble-minded, spineless, and clueless peopl and you look like a freakin’ genius. Obummer figured this out long ago.
There will be more Tea Party reps in the next Congress. They will likely want to do something other to the Speaker’s backside than kiss it.
Yep if the tidal wave happens like they are saying....Boehner could be washed out too. John, I think you spoke too soon.
I think Tammy Faye is taking those martini’s on IV drip or something. :-)

I read some of Boehner’s history. He started out as a salesman of industrial products and prospered. He’s a country club “go along to get along” kinda guy.
Harry Reid OTOH has been public employee his entire life.
You can see the difference in their approach.
And to quote Stone Cold Steve Austin. "That's all I gotta say about that!"
If elected, will you vote to replace Mister Boehner (THE worst negotiator in the history of GOP SOHs) as SOH?
(A no or a maybe is an instant DQ.)
He sounds like a lib to me!
He's right. This is what the Republican Party is. Conservatives are the RINO's.
I’ve loathed the big baby from day one.
One day he’s stepping down and the next he’s better than ever. Looks like he finalized his latest under the table kickback $$$$.
Thanks, Jerk, er, John — You just confirmed my belief that you are indeed Boehner the Boner.
If you truly cared more about your country than yourself, you would resign your post as Speaker.
