Moments before announcing defeat to GOP colleagues, Speaker Boehner recited the Serenity Prayer








Speaker offered a prayer before announcing the defeat of 'Plan B'
By Molly K. Hooper, Peter Schroeder and Russell Berman - 12/20/12 09:53 PM ET

Moments before announcing defeat to his GOP colleagues, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) recited the Serenity Prayer often heard at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.


“Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference,” the downtrodden House Speaker said at a hastily called closed-door meeting Thursday night to tell fellow House Republicans that he didn’t have to votes to pass his “Plan B” effort to avoid the "fiscal cliff."

....................................

Instead, the House would wait for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and President Obama to act on measures that the House passed earlier this year.

1. Now how do we get him reciting the Litany Against Fear?

Because that'll mean he's skeered.
