    Ohhh, this could get interesting! The Cowardly Lion, also know as the Crybaby, and perhaps even Benedict Arnold...John Boehner, could end up losing his spot as Speaker of the House. Well, Bohner never was Speaker of the House, his correct title would be: "Punching Bag For Democrats", but anyway, if 16 Republicans decide to abstain from voting, he would fall 1 vote short of the required 218 votes needed to be Speaker of the House. Let's pray and hope this happens, so we can give the crybaby the biggest kick in the ass that he truly deserves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've been saying for a while that he should be unseated. He has been a poor Speaker.

    Yeah and maybe you could learn something about actually holding your party official accountable.

    If only. I told my rep not to vote for him the first time because he is a weak kneed establishment sob. I have relayed those same sentiments since the election, we'll see how much good it will do.

    Oh, I fully agree with you. I truly think that the GOP should make Bachman Speaker.

    He had a lot of ‘help’ from the right.

    Perhaps if the TPM and other extremists had engaged in responsible governance rather than party before country, Boehner might have had a more successful tenure and the Nation better off for it.

    Please. The TPM are the only group in Washington who are being responsible.

    I wonder if the Democrats would have the courage to do the same with Senate Majority leader Harry everything that comes to Senate is D.O.A. Reid? I suspect we all know this answer to this.
