1. Fascinating--who planted the stepping-down story then?

19. I was just saying that same thing elsewhere.

Cantor wants to make Boehner appear even weaker before tomorrows vote.

A fractured GOP is a thing of beauty to behold!

5. Another Republican, would be my guess.

Obama seems to enjoy kicking his butt so I doubt Obama would want him gone yet.

15. It seems he is the press secretary for the right wing organization...

American Majority Action. No doubt they are unhappy with the vote last night and are working on behalf of Cantor, imo.

29. Isn't funny how that they seem to think that making it WORSE, will somehow be better for them???

By '14 midterms, my bet is the ENTIRE echo chamber over there will have NO IDEA what kind of punishment is in store for them. Every Conservative in the country will spend the last 2 years of Obama's term wondering how it all went bad for them as a Nationally Viable political party.

30. Yep, if they keep on going off the wall as they have been doing...

2014 will be VERY interesting. The American public, at least the majority of the voters, aren't buying what they're selling any more. If they refuse to raise the debt ceiling as is being threatened by the bozos their approval numbers will go from single digits into actual minuses, lol.

8. And the votes to pass plan B were totally in the bag...

The clown show that passes for the republican party these days would be hilarious if they weren't dragging the rest of the country down with them....

10. As suspected, rumor floated to make him appear even more weak.

 

They're coming after him with knives drawn.

14. He says he is not going down...........but

The way it looks, he may be FORCED out. Between the far right and now after his wrangling with New York and New Jersey Republicans, It may be difficult getting to 217 votes tomorrow.

20. It won't be long IMO ...




before he releases a "want to spend more time with family" type message.
And then he will slowly fade out of sight.

23. Been there. Heard that. His name was Romney.

Boner's toast. He's proven he can't rally the different factions. On to the next fool. I give the next one a year. Maybe less.

They're the circular firing squad.

Think big money will continue to fund this broken-down clown car in the next election?

I'm getting the wonderful feeling that my government is actually working for me.

Go ahead and be mad at Obama. But he's gotten our country to work for us, and it included some wheeling and dealing.

That's the job, people. He's wielding the rules like a saber.

Lovin' me some beautiful president.
