Breaking: John Boehner has agreed to stay on as Speaker
Fox News ^ | 10/8/2015 | Bret Baier

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 Speaker’s gavel). Short of that – Boehner will stay on for the rest of this Congress and steer legislation that is pending.

What do you propose to do with the staff that is fully mercinary? If you get rid of the problem, that means you completely gut every person from the GOP. Then you are left with nothing but a huge pile of burnt bridges, bad history and all the rest of the baggage.

There is ZERO point building a castle in a swamp like Monty Python, it sinks, you build another, it sinks, you build another...and you wasted years during which liberalism advances while you fight for a sunken enterprise.

What sense is there to that? It’s the truth. The facts are there. You don’t reform Islam. You don’t reform the mob. You don’t reform crips, bloods or the KKK. You destroy them and you begin with principled people and a fresh slate from the ground up.

A slut by any other name.

The comparison to sluts demands an apology. The apology is not to be directed to Boehner but to sluts.

good one.

I have a feeling Obama will try the same tactic and refuse to leave.

Agent Orange is every bit as much an enemy of America as Obama is.

Why not just turn it back over to Pelosi? She’s been pulling the Boner from day one.

Clearly that’s not something they’re interested in doing.

There are “republicans” that I despise more than some ‘rats.

Boner is one of those.

And, consider that he is SECOND in line of succession to the Presidency. Disgusting.

I find this all amazing....everything/everyone is being exposed. We now know the Republican establishment truly hates its base. We now know the media truly hate NON-politicians running for President. We now know the supreme court has not intention in following our constitution and will reinterpret our laws based on the cultural change they desire. We also now know that Repubs/Dems are one in the same and really do not care about saving this country. By next year, Syrians, Mexicans, gays, and other middle eastern people will dominate our country. They will be the preferred class of people.

I am truly sorry for my language in my first comment, Admins. It was mild compared with HBO, but it still was uncalled for, provoked as I was by this upsetting news.

Agreed with who, exactly?

Leave, yesterday.

I hear what your saying but Boner quit - so he is not the Gov from The Walking Dead. From what I hear, he is staying on only until a replacement is found.

This is just a power ploy by the GOPe to get the Speaker they want. They can block anyone else thus keeping Boehner in place. No doubt, Boehner cooked this up with McCarthy as a counter to the Freedom Caucus.

Seems a bit misleading alarmist to me, both the headline and the reaction here.

OK, so he’s staying on until they get a replacement in place. So what; not shocking.

I’d stay on my job until the shop can find a replacement, unless it was absolutely pressing that I leave.

And the GOPe wonders why people want someone like Trump.

This is flat out wrong.

How come they can’t find some ghosts in Boehner’s closet ?

The Administration has. Witness the way he conducts himself/his campaigns in his primaries versus the way he conducts himself against the Democrats. Witness the way he 'leads' any opposition against simply does not exist.
