    Yeah I lean to the Right.....but I don't think he has shown the leadership that was needed.

    I don't go for all the BS RINO crap that the Conservatives fall off into playing that harp song that was created by the left, in the first place. Which then the NEO Cons made it point to emphasize those they considered to be RINO's. Although one is left guessing for those that just want to run around and call themselves Moderate. Because as far as I know the Libertarians been around quite some time, and lean mostly to the Right. That's not to say they don't have some liberals. Still.....now you have some Moderates saying the same with leaning left and right. My solution was to call them out on what it is in Being Moderate. As in WTF is that?

    I didn't understand what you meant by the bolded part. What are some things you would have liked Boehner to do differently? In my opinion, he less of a leader, more of a follower in a leadership position.

    Means one has to question those moderates.....well one thing He should have been making alliances within the GOP and getting them on the same page. They should have been in real conferences and not out at some dinners and then just believing they could compromise with Obama. Telling Obama this is how things work.....don't cut it. If Boehner had been a leader.....then Right now. The Dems would not be holding the Senate. He Never got control of his people.

    you are speaking truth, most people on this forum don't know what that is!
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    This reply may totally out in left field, but I think Boehner is a good man in a bit over his head. I think Boehner would work with the president given his dithers, but is too worried about maintaining his speakership to even give it a try. He is scared those on his right with an agenda to push over good governance would dispose of him. So he tries some to work with those across the aisle, but does so with eyes in the back of his head watching members of his own party more intently than watching the democrats.

    For Boehner, it is all about maintaining a job that he hasn't the guts to do right. Given another era in Washington D.C. he might have come over as an enlighten speaker, but not today.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
