Posted on 10/08/2015 6:25:48 PM PDT by VictoryGal
Having Talked to several senior aides on Capitol Hill (along with Chris Stirewalt and his sources on the Hill tied to the leadership) here is the picture that is beginning to form.
Speaker John Boehner has agreed to stay on as Speaker--not just until the Caucus nominates someone --but, until that person can confirm 218 votes on the House floor (needed to take the Speakers gavel). Short of that Boehner will stay on for the rest of this Congress and steer legislation that is pending.

Surrounded by a staff of yes-persons, he does not understand how reviled he is.
Wish McTurtle and Spray Tan Boy would take a walk down main street America and feel the love—or whatever.
You’re right; vacate the chair, then let the chips fall where they may. It couldn’t be much worse than the Orange One no matter who takes over, and getting rid of Boehner after blocking McCarthy and sending Cantor packing will let these jerks know it’s a new ballgame.
So he quit....etc...

(I had ‘submitted this earlier on another thread)
My cynicism, conspiracy theory, suspicious mind says that was the plan all along.
Boner announces he is resigning (while wiping away a tear), his hand picked successor says something utterly STUPID and even if he meant it, it shouldnt be repeated.
Like a White Pol going to a black lives matter rally and continually use the word niggardly rather than say cheap SOB.
Good word, correct word, VERY DUMB usage of same.
Anyway, hand picked successor drops out, SHTF and boner graciously offers to stick around for the healing process.
A DOG AND PONY SHOW THE LIKES OF TIJUANA or OLONGAPO HAVE NEVER SEEN.
In twenty-five years in politics, I’ve seen a lot.
But this is right down there among the most disgusting things I’ve ever witnessed.
Ted Cruz used the term “volcanic” in the WaPo today. They ain’t seen nuttin’ yet. BTT
Some people brighten a room by entering it, others by leaving it.
How can we miss you, Bonehead, if you won’t leave? (And by “miss” I mean, like missing a passed kidney stone.)
You drunken RINO sack of shite.
So, the plan was that Boehner would quit, McCarthy would take his place and perform the same.
However, McCarthy couldn’t face the music (about the adultery) so, he quit.
So, it’s back to Boehner.
How come they can’t find some ghosts in Boehner’s closet ?
Oh what joy.
He lacks the erotic imagination necessary.
Seems that Chavis or Webster should be calling for a point of order and demand a vote. Just because one has withdrawn is no reason to not vote. What does Roberts’s Rules of Order Say ?
Two for one take out the turtle without shell also
With a complicit media feeding the rumor mill, they can Bork any conservative who runs for the job. He'd never get to 218, so Boner stays right where he's at.
They may think that this takes the heat off for a while by neutralizing our threat to remove Boehner.
He needs to vacate the chair now!
I wonder what “they” have on him?
Interesting choice of words there. They really don't adequately express what Boehner is doing-"desperately refuses to leave" would be more accurate.
IOW a big head fake.
The GOPe is REFUSING to listen.
Boehner stay is a big “lalalalalalalalala” can’t hear you.
Time to place the severed head of a horse in his bed - then maybe he’ll get the message.
