Boehner: 'I'm not meeting with you people.'"

Boehner had a heated exchange with Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.), one of the members urging the House Republican leadership to bring up the Sandy legislation, according to fellow Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.). The House adjourned on Tuesday night without passing the $60.4 billion Sandy relief package that the Senate approved last week.

"I was chasing the Speaker all over the House floor last night, trying to talk to him and his staff," King said on CNN on Wednesday morning. "He kept telling me, wait until the vote is over, wait until the fiscal cliff vote is over, everything will be taken care of. And then he was gone. He refused to meet with us. He actually yelled at Congressman LoBiondo, saying, 'I'm not meeting with you people.'"

2. Sounds like Boner came completely unhinged.

So he is resigning in order to spend more time with his friends Johnny Walker and Jack Daniels.

5. Resigning from the Speakership.

Sorry, that wasn't clear. We'll still be stuck with his sorry orange alcoholic ass as a member of Congress.

6. "You people..." Where have we heard that before?

Oh yeah, Ann Rmoney. These wealthy, elite, upper crust folks can barely stand being on the same planet as everyone else. Things would be so much nicer for them if "us people" would just disappear.

16. That was my first thought too. "You people".

Talk about phrases that should never be used......this phrase is meant to tick people off.

20. Whoever it is will still be herding angry, rabid cats from day one.

 

Why would you have a problem with either Cantor or Ryan? They're my top picks for the job.

The Teabaggers have destroyed Boehner, let 'em have a crack at the one of the other stars of the GOP. Cantor would be repeatedly exposed as the nasty piece of work he is (naked ambition, power hungry and mean), and Ryan as entitled, stupid and mean.

If any of the old-guard (R)s step up, I'll be shocked and they need to have a mental health evaluation. 2013-2015 will be a bad time to be the Republican Speaker. Count on it.
