    Be careful what you wish for. There's a good chance someone worse would replace him.

    Do you think he could have delayed monies Obama wanted for overseas? Like always holding it for the last second before releasing?

    I think he didn't show the leadership that was needed. That he underestimated the Democrats and how they would proceed. Believing they wanted to work things out in any bipartisan way.

    Boehner really doesn't want to stall the progress of the economy.
    He's being forced to.

    Boehner may be in a situation where he had no winning option.

    Boehner should be replaced by a Republican who can control his damned party. The tea party radicals are damaging the brand and need to be brought back into line. There needs to be punishments for lunatics who put fanaticism and self promotion ahead of the good of the party.

    John Boener should be put in jail with the rest of the Teaaliban traitors. Pretty simple America is finally seeing what the rest of us saw years ago. They are not Christians they more or less are just like the Nazi's. I say ****em all

    Heh. I'm assuming you said this about 8 years ago about Bush, but switched out the names to make it sound topical.

    Nope there are more than a few on both sides that should be in jail over the Iraq war! Namely Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield, Powell, Rice, Pelosi, Reid, any intelligence committee members. Especcially if they knew about the torture that was going on. But you are making an assumption that you cannot back up.

    Boehner is the SOTH.... How does someone "force" him? He can only be forced if he is weak.
