    You are not alone.

    I think John Boehner the best of good men, he loves America, and he is concerned with doing people right. It takes courage to fight the good fight, and he has both courage and the good fight on his side. He's America's representative, and he is looking out for the American people.

    Boehner is a failure as a speaker

    His legislative accomplishments are nonexistent. He has been unable to develop a consensus within his own party let alone the Democrats. He is at odds with Eric Cantor and has twice led us to the brink of a Government shutdown. His inability to control Tea Party Republicans led to a devaluing of our credit rating

    No, that is not his history, EdtheCynic.

    The people want the spending stopped and voted that way. Speaker Boehner has the last election as his first priority, because the people spoke to him and told him to stop the DC spending spree. I do think he's doing his best, Mr. Rightwinger. :)

    I was annoyed with him when he kept crying, but I've come to really like him, and I think he's done a good job countering obama and the dems.

    Nay.

    He's a squishy, mealy-mouthed, neocon embarrassment, who should be ousted in a primary challenge by somebody with some gonads.

    Even Boehner has been humiliated by the actions of his own party. The Speaker of the House has certain responsibilities that transcend party loyalties. Boehner has not even been able to allow the House to do business. His speakership has devolved to petty bickering not only with Democrats but between Republicans

    Worst Speaker of our generation

    Actually, he's in a difficult predicament between a people who want the American dream to be within their reach and a White House that wants to snatch it away while Obama supporters live the good cushy life at the expense of working people who, after paying school expenses, piano lessons, triple gas pain at the pump, hardly have two nickels to rub together to put their children through college.

    I pray for Speaker Boehner for his courage and his concerted effort to answer the majority of Americans who told with their votes to slow down some of the spending spree going on due to silly campaign promises to make everybody rich.

    Only 30% of the American people work now. The rest are going to school or are retired. Since the Pelosi Congress outspent themselves while having that large majority, Speaker Boehner had a sorry lot cast upon him, and he's doing as good a job as one man can do to control spending as leader of the House, and in fact, the American people since the executive branch has totally abdicated a sense of responsibility to voters in favor of socialistic agendas that do not flex.

    I love people who try really hard to do the impossible.

    It's hard to mix a realistic capital system with a no-holds-barred hyper-socialistic revolution. Speaker Boehner is giving his all, that's plain as day to me. :)
