hmmm.... Boehner may resign?
Quote:Rumors That John Boehner Will Resign As Speaker

In the eyes of many, Tuesday night was not a banner night for the Speaker of the House. As John Boehner’s giant gavel became dwarfed by the art of compromise, his Tea Party following rebelled. The writing has been on the wall for the divisive and ineffective leader for a while, but his vote for the fiscal cliff deal that raised taxes on those who make above $400,000 ($450K for couples) was too much for the Tea Party and Boehner’s corporate constituency to take. It’s no surprise that there are rumors that the troubled leader will resign his post. In fact, a spokesperson for the conservative group, American Majority Action says it will happen tonight.

While few Democrats would shed tears over the loss of the chief crier, his potential replacement will almost undoubtedly be House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), who has been rumored to have been staging a coup for quite some time, albeit quietly. Cantor is quiet no more. His latest rebellion is public and widely recognized.

I wouldn't shed a tear over his resignation, but Cantor?! ugh... he'd be even worse than the orange man. Vomit

Yes, that's the rumor. But the bad part is he'll be replaced by a TeaParty Republican.

RE: hmmm.... Boehner may resign?
The thing about Cantor is that he's the "meanie." And you never let the meanie be the head of your Party in the House.

See Newt Gingrich for how a meanie fares in the top position--not well as I recall.

RE: hmmm.... Boehner may resign?
It would be difficult for Republicans if they end up with a Teabagger speaker. Teabaggers do not want to lead, they want to throw bombs from the sideline. If they were suddenly to be held accountable for having to get things done; i.e. "compromise", they'd soon lose the support of their followers.

Confirmed, Fox "news" makes you stupid

The ones you are noticing are more terrified than anything else. They are lashing out because they are comfortable; and to acknowledge what is happening is a threat to that comfort. Ignore them, for they are not the voices that will rise in the coming days, months and years. They are not the voices of our collected humanity. They are the old voices of fear and impotence. - Anonymous

RE: hmmm.... Boehner may resign?
I don't see it happening. A Speaker doesn't step down voluntarily unless he or she is leaving the House altogether, and Bonehead isn't doing that.

He WILL have to do more to help the Teabaggers into obscurity, but after their performance on Sandy aid, I think they have done most of the work right there.

So much for their little TeaParty revolt!! Boehner elected speaker of the house.

He better hire a food taster if he eats with Cantor.

Not likely, but the teabaggers will make his life harder than it already is. I doubt he can control them.
