"It’s a familiar refrain from the Ohio Republican, who has consistently criticized the Senate for failing to act to blunt the sequester."

Very artistic piece, but let's be more blunt. Boehner wants more big spending to pass the Senate.

My "history" is the same as anything I've said on this thread. Big deal. Any reader is welcome to check it out if they can be bothered.

But you can just keep pretending I'm some kind of DU troll which is so laughable because it's YOU and the DU'ers are saying the same stuff about Boehner.

Your MO and the commie DU'ers is EXACTLY the same on this...you'll feel right at home.

Another GOP sellout to add to your denial list Sparky.

Oh and the list of 80 GOPers that sent their approval for gay marriage to the USSC....

And that’s just today.

tell Captain Caveman I said hi.

Yes, I did see that. No matter. Boner is like 0 for 20 (or worse) in standing up against 0dumb0. Boner will cave, no doubt about it, it's only a matter of time. I think it will be sometime next week when he caves. He is absolutely scared shitless against 0dumb0.

As far as losing his Speakership, if Repubs couldn't even muster 16 "No" votes against him being re-elected as Speaker, there is no way that Repubs will ever vote him out. Too many spineless Repubs who are equally scared of 0dumb0 & the leftist-marxist media.

I may not agree with you on all points, and I still think that Boehner is completely inept as well as scared stiff of 0bama... but you did write a good posting with solid comments IMO.

They are basically one and the same. And yep, too many Republicans run like scared bunny rabbits.

No denial here. I never said I approved of all GOP actions despite what you dreamed you've read in my "history".

And who in the world in Captain Caveman? You just keep yelling into your little echo chamber, DU-buddy. I'm glad you can keep yourself company.

The thread article was basically a positive message, and I can use a positive message coming from Republicans once in awhile. That's why when one comment after another was negative, naysaying, and relentless bashing, I got the urge to step in with something hopeful, positive. Believe me, I am at least as cynical as anybody else who posted on this thread. It will not surprise me in the slightest if Boehner caves - - in which case I will toast him like a marshmallow on this forum and elsewhere.

That said, I am going to try to keep a positive outlook and give credit where credit is due. Lately, Boehner has been saying the right things and taking a strong stand. It's nice to see. I will wait and see the outcome before I start swiping. God knows, these people need encouragement.

FRegards,
LH

The rhetoric of John Boehner doesn’t mean diddly-squat. He always caves; the issue is “when” will he cave.
