9. I might get pounded for this...

But I think that Boehner really does want to work across party lines. He just doesn't have the backbone needed. I wish he did.

He has been overcome by the radicals who have held the RW in handcuffs. And that is what is holding him back. Fear of losing his power and worse, fear of not being re-elected....which is effectively, the real bottom line.

Victims of their own making. Now they have to face the fact that their party is in rapid decline. They have no exit strategy, because they have no other thoughts beyond their current ones.

Who do they turn to now that the electorate isn't made up of older white males who long for their "good 'ole days."

This is the demise of the Republican Party. They have no future because they live in the past...long for the past...hope to restore the past. A past that is long gone. One that has become ashes in the fire pit of renewed optimism and hope for better days, equality, fairness and prosperity.

May FREEDOM persist. Especially within the confines our own Republic!!
