    At a time when real leadership is called for Boehner wastes precious time on a useless Tea Bagger bill that has no hope of passing.

    How many political stunts is he going to pull? Is he that far in the Tea Party pocket? When the political solution calls for compromise, the Republicans move in the opposite direction

    The balanced budget amendment is a sham. The votes are never going to be there. Two thirds majority in both houses is needed to pass BBA. It will NEVER happen. Why waste time on this silliness?

    Boehner (god I hope he's the next sex scandal!) is not a right-wing Tea Bagger nut. Not normally. But I think it would be extremely embarrassing to him if he couldn't get their support. In an election year, the whole party would look ridiculous if they couldn't agree on something. He can't tell them to fuck off but he can't move to the left without risking the party's face. So he's stuck.

    As long as he doesn't carry that (D) by his name, there's nothing he can do to mollify any of them.

    Then again, seems that nothing es ever good enough for spoiled rotten little children.....So it would seem that party affiliation is the best excuse they can come up with.

    I actually have no problem with Boehner. He knows what the deal is. Probably his biggest mistake was to egg the Tea Party on after Obama was elected... but I am not sure that was necessarily his decision, it could have been the Republican Caucus looking for a way to recover from 2008. In that respect, he got what he asked for. People that he can't work with. He might as well still have a Democratic majority, because if there's anything even remotely Moderate, but GOP leaning... he won't get Dem OR Tea Party votes.

    Tough place to be as Speaker of the House... much like Reid was in the Senate, Boehner is stuck in the House. He needs votes, but he can't get them... not because of the Dems... but because of his own party.... How fucked up is that?
