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.

He was for retirement before he was against it.
I have a feeling we ain't seen nothin' yet.
This "bipartisan" thing shocked the hell out of me.
All the ghosts in Boehner's closet are owned by Obama and the RATS.
Is this a game to them?? Go ahead and have the vote now!
What is the solution? May God help us all to find it personally and beyond that take actions hopefully nonviolent but resistant and rebellious.
Americans have absolutely no idea what is about to happen to us all, considering most of the population refuses to understand we lost the Republic in a velvet IslamoMarxist/Fascist coup.
We went worse than Soviet - and we have a fatal case of Normalcy Bias,even when events like this are paraded right in our faces.
We already suffer a tyranny we are grown comfortable with - and we deceive ourselves thinking elections and civil means are going to loosen the noose we have around our necks.
Perhaps we all deserve what is about to happen next.
Boehner is their leader and he isn't going anywhere.
I agree, I totally despise him.
It was a circus before. Now it’s becoming a zoo!
Is there anyone here that still do not believe that the Republican Party would rather have a Democrat n office than a Conservative? Also, is there still anyone here that believes we have a two political party system?
Kick the bum out!
We have debt ceiling in three week. Absolutely not. NO MORE!!
The leadership of Party R are folks of the same mind as Party D that couldn’t climb its crowded rungs. So they hijacked Party R for themselves and are remaking it in Party D’s image.
Nothing has changed except he is further weakened.
Time for the vacate vote, Meadows.
Obama sure knows what they are.
Boehner said he is resigning the Speakership and from Congress on October 30th. He did not say he is resigning “effective upon the election of his successor”.
I don’t know if his resignation can be rescinded.
Ohio is in the process of scheduling a special election, Kasich decides the election date.
Anyone notice some people missing from these threads lately?
Yup. Thats right. the leftist freepers that demanded, browbeat and screamed bloody murder about how we just HAD to re-elect this POS because the powerless freshman Democrat that would have replaced him was a fate worse than death.
I wonder why they are so quiet. Perhaps it’s because they did the bidding of the GOPe and made fools out of conservatives that listened to them and gave the establishment exactly what they wanted - Support for Obama.
Well, some of us tried to warn people.
