    The newest poll numbers put the Democratic Party's fav/unfav at 44/48 to the Republican Party's 39/54. Boehner, on the other hand, at 37/39, is fairly comparable to recent numbers for Barack Obama (Poll: Obama's Favorability Rating Upside-Down for First Time - Hotline On Call).

    At a glance, these numbers look quite bad for incumbents, but encouraging overall for Congressional Democrats in 2012. Republicans aren't going to get much from either the GOP or Tea Party brand this time around.

    I watched an interview with a GOP strategist last night discussing this very thing. Boehner has fallen out of favor with centrist GOP voters and currently only resonates with the far right Tea Party wing. As a whole, this strategist believed Cain won the straw poll in FL as a way of telling the GOP, "we want another option". The current candidates in the lead cater to the Tea Party and Boehner and Cantor are willing to send our economy over the cliff just to prove a point (to the Tea Party). The centrist GOP voters want people in office who will actually do something POSITIVE for the country. Not shut it down.

    Bullshit he does.

    In the view of the TP folx I know of IRL, Mr. Iwannabe George Hamilton is the avatar for everything that is wrong with the District of Criminals in general and the GOP in particular.

    This raises the question: What's in it for a media flack dressed up as a "GOP strategist" to tell such a BS story?

    That's funny. Various media sources had led me to believe that the Tea Party was angry at Boehner.

    As a more moderate Republican I am greatly impressed by Boehner and how he handles the pressures from all sides, especially how he handles Obama's brattiness.
