Boehner confirms Holder contempt vote over 'Fast and Furious'

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John A. Boehner confirmed Wednesday that the House will vote on whether Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. is to be ruled in contempt of Congress for his role in the "Fast and Furious" gun-running program, and his refusal to share some documents with House committees.

Saying that last-minute talks between Republicans and the White House failed to result in an agreement on the desired documents, Boehner said “we’d really rather not be here,” but that wouldn’t stop the vote from moving forward.

“This vote was scheduled last week,” he said. “We’d really rather have the attorney general and the president work with us to get to the bottom of a very serious issue.”

1. Some merchant needs to offer free taning beds and booze

during the week of the vote to lure Mr. Boner away from the halls of Congress.

2. Still working to create them jobs huh boner?

God I hate this orange colored piece of shit. I mean I hate this man with every fiber of my being, with the intensity of a thousand suns... I truly hope one day I'm able to piss on his grave. Maybe they'll plant his corpse next to Cantors so I can do a double.

I wonder if he's going to bawl his fucking eyes out as he reads the vote in the chamber?

4. they just keep distracting themselves with important matters

because they haven't got a clue how to create jobs.
Whole focus is on winning the election.
We must re-elect Obama.

Apologies to Andrew Jackson.

6. NRA: Jump!! Boner: How High??

This is all orchestrated by the NRA to scare their members into sending big checks so they can play with the SuperPac big boys. It's a typical litmus test to try to embarass the administration and push the "they're taking guns away" meme through the corporate media. Boner has to listen to the NRA...

8. Around our house we refer to Eric Cantor as "John Boehner's Asshole"

You notice how Cantor is always behind him.

9. DISCLAIMER -- What follows is absolutely unfounded speculation

Perhaps it leaked to him that ACA will go against the GOP's preference and he needs this to buoy the troops.
