Okay, I'll say it: Boner acted like a stand-up guy.

He did the right thing, including casting a vote himself. He also ignored the Hastert rule.

I also have to laugh. He's got no influence in his own caucus. Poor Boner.

1. The 3rd is going to be interesting when the 113th comes in.

2. It's probably the end of his speakership...but, a good way to go.

if the young JFK were still around, he might give Boehner a chapter in "Profiles In Courage" for this.

3. More like a stand-up comedian.

But I digress... It's true he stuck his neck out and may find himself as just another Ohio congressman in a month or two. Frankly, that's all he's been anyway.

4. I think there was some chemistry between him and the Prez

and he'll be at the White House often - and apparently he hit if off
with Biden too...I like him just about more than any other Rep now in office.

No influence in his own caucus is a good thing. The devil won't share his power with Boener...

7. I fully expect him to lose his speakership over this.

Get ready for Speaker of the House Eric Cantor.

12. Hasturd: Don't bring a vote to the floor unless you have a majority of the Majority in favor.
