Oh, okay. I feel better now that I know he's just playing the media. He did so well defending his party before Election 2012 and playing the media then too.
No one says you have to feel better. Don't forget Romney's role in 2012.
Two points in response :
1) Back in early 2009 to 2010 I was posting here that you better get rid of Bohner because he was the point man to get votes for TARP, and all that other crap Republicans LOVED under Bush and hated under O. But I was a lone voice here being lectured how that stuff was good under Bush.
2) No one wants Bohners job to be Os bitch. So we are stuck with him. Call up your favorite conservative and ask him to run for Speaker, I bet he wont return your message.
No deal will be made this year. Next year??
Actually Speaker Boehner was alot more successful than any other prominent Republican, conservative or otherwise, in the 2012 election. The GOP won about 53% of the House seats. He is trying to avoid a complete Democrat dictatorship come 2014. Unfortunately the GOP lost the tax debate because the majority of this country envies the rich. It is a losing proposition and I hope he can successfully deflect it and loss of the House.
If you want to feel better, forget how conservatives threw away a reasonable change to tie up or take the Senate ...
