Boehner’s Biggest Threat

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by muriel_volestrangler (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Should a debt deal go sour, the buzz is that Tom Price, a 58-year-old physician from Georgia, may challenge John Boehner for the speaker’s gavel.

“Price is the person we’re all watching,” says an aide close to House leadership. “We know he’s frustrated, but we don’t know much else.”

In an interview with National Review Online, Price won’t speculate about his future, but he acknowledges his growing uneasiness. “My concern is that within our conference, conservatives, who are a majority, don’t have a proper platform,” he says. “That’s true at the leadership table and on the steering committee.”

1. So Boner's Biggest Threat is

the teagaggery!!!! Personally I'm glad that weeping pumpkin is being shat upon by the very conservative idealogues he and his ilk have catered too since 09. To quote the biggest Moron in the republican party, the smirking chimp Bush, "Bring 'em on"!!!!!

3. The title of "Biggest Moron in the Republican Party" belongs to Allen West.

 

He's STILL whining...

2. “We know he’s frustrated, but we don’t know much else.” . . .

Isn't that all we know about most Republicans?

4. boehner is in quite the spot ...

demint has alrighty telegraphed that he will use his heritage foundation seat to be a pain in boehner's butt and, despite the election results, the nutty wing of his party insist that they lost because they weren't nutty enough (or were not clear enough about their nuttery).

6. Boehner

I do not see where this would be helpful.

The trading of one a hole for another a hole will not solve any problems, or benefit the majority of citizens.

We need a Progressive pit bull to run against Boehner.

A Progressive pit bull with the ability to raise unlimited amounts of cash.

7. Biggest Problem

is they're out of ideas.

No new ones coming, no compromise possible, extreme right wing

You can put lipstick on that pig all you want

You've still got survival-of-the-fittest all for the richest

8. Locking - not Latest Breaking News

This is speculation from the National Review, not news. It might be OK in Politics 2012 or GD (though bear in mind it is a right wing point of view).
