    Speaker Boehner bargains, then braces for fallout

    So let me get this straight. Boehner brings enough votes together to actually accomplish something and because he has the audacity to work with everyone involved he faces a revolt in his own party? :cuckoo:

    America hates gridlock and wants our politicians to work together. It's too bad that many GOP congressmen don't want the same thing.

    Maybe in 10 or 20 years. Who knows. But eventually, yes.

    Republicans today send their congressmen to Washington to sabotage not govern.

    Maybe the T will become speaker? Who is more intelligent, more articulate and more partisan?








    For the T and others who won't get it, this post is entirely sarcastic.

    The Democrats should pray he stays in the position of Speaker.

    A man who handed out Tobacco Lobby checks on the House floor --- while the House was still in session? :eusa_pray:

    I thought you were just kidding because I had never heard that one before.

    But no, the man knows no shame.
