“How did this pantywaist become Speaker?”

He represents the goals and ideals of the GOP leadership.

Boehner is a vichy republican and needs to be replaced yesterday.

But the Speaker also said he wants to "de-politicize" the issue of gun violence, which has been thrust dreadfully into the national spotlight following the murder of 26 people — 20 of them young school children — at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Friday.

Sounds to me like that's code for, "I want Republicans to adopt a position that can't be distinguished from that of Democrats."

In other words, let's all be one big happy liberal party up here on the Hill.

Republicans need to "have a discussion on guns" in the wake of last week's grade-school massacre in Newtown, Conn., Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told his conference Tuesday.

Whenever Boner wants to "have a discussion," he means "capitulate." But, I'm willing to discuss it with him.

Boner, you are a whiny, spineless, unprincipled, crybaby, POS, pillow biting, 0bama loving, little _itch. Leave your grimy paws off my money and my guns; beyond that GFY. It was nice discussing this with you.

Now he’s joining dems in blaming guns for the crimes of a mentally ill wacko?

Gosh, why bother with two parties? Let’s just enact’s Immelt’s favorite system - a one party communist/fascist slave system? The KOS kiddos giggle at the piles of dead bodies. Utopia.

Proof positive that Boneher is nothing more than Obama's b*tch.

Lately he has brought bills to the floor which have only been able to pass with a majority of DEMOCRAT votes (such as the sequestration deal), knowing that the majority of the members in his own party opposed it.

The real question is why would the GOP vote this quisling as speaker again?

“have a discussion on guns” is simply political code for ‘ok, ok, lets work out some consessions’ - and - since Boehner has the spine of a jellyfish God knows what he’ll give away.

The most effective way to deal with this is to write your congressman. Be specific about what is wrong with Boehner's "leadership".

The correct way to handle this situation is just to let it blow over. The left will wave the bloody shirt they way they always do. Then they will get distracted by something else.

“Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-Ohio) noted the change on Tuesday, telling The Hill that the mood in the conference among “even the strongest gun supporters” is that they “don’t object to having a conversation about it — which is a big shift.”

hmmmm, these folks have developed amnesia. They are forgetting the voters that put them into office. Obama didn’t put them in office and Boehner didn’t put them in their lofty positions.

Seems like everyone is developing mental issues.

Um did that with the sequestration deal, went through anyway.

I will call anyway, but it seems obvious DC is a one party dictatorship now.

The Speaker does not have to be an elected representative. The Republicans could bring back Newt as Speaker. He would not have a vote but he would preside over the House. They could appoint Mark Levin or Rush Limbaugh speaker. Except for his age, I’d be in favor of Thomas Sowell.

Had this discussion again today. Said it was time to drop out of the Republican Exectutive Committee. I am done. Will be determining if I am an Indy or a NA. Let them work for my vote and I will keep my cash(whatever is left that is) in my household. Screw the Repubs as they had my undivided attention for many years. Now, not so much...

Thankfully the next election is about 2 years away and much other stuff will take the limelight before then.

Hopefully he is just telling them not to go out and say anything stupid on TV right now.

Great testimony by Suzanna Hupp! When I saw that smirking, SOB bastard Sen Schumer, I just about wanted to puke. That sonofabitch has personal body guards and yet wants to deny us our 2nd amendment right to bear arms and defend ourselves. As Suzanna Hupp so aptly put it, we need our weapons & semi-auto load guns to protect ourselves from the fascist-socialist bastards in our federal, state & local governments (all the demoRATs and a good portion of Rinos & repukes like Boehner) who want to tyrannize us and bring totalitarian rule to Amerika!

“The question I have is, who would replace Boehner as speaker?”

That’s a very good question. I would love to see a man or woman from the TEA Party caucus get the nod.

We’ll have to see how it plays out. Boehner needs to be the ex-speaker as soon as possible. He’s awful.

I think Beohner is a deep dem plant and has been one all along. He puts on a great show until it’s time to call the hand and then goes against everything conservative, and just gives the dems what they want. He does it every time. When has he ever stood firm on conservative ground and not caved? He’s working for the left and the country club elites, not “We The People”.

The time for talking and discussion is over.

We’re arrived at the time when the intended purpose of the 2nd Amendment is the only option left to preserve liberty.

The longer it takes for enough Americans to realize that fact, the more impossible it will become to save life and liberty from the tyranny about to engulf us all.
