I think Boehner is going to do the right thing.

I think he will allow compromises to come to a vote and let a coalition of sane Republicans and the Democrats pass a budget funding bill and a highway bill.

Yeah, I'm sayin it. Boehner is going to stick it to the Tealiban as his last act in Congress. He's going to do it because he got a little bit of inspiration from the Pope and because he is sick and tired of kowtowing to the loony bin baggers.

Go for it John! I'm with ya!!!!!!!!!

2. My very first thought was,

I wonder what they got on him. TPTB have to have some really damning evidence on him in some kind of compromising position for him to step down like that, so suddenly, out of the blue.

4. This press conference is really interesting...

This is the most "statesmanlike" I have ever seen him. He's even kind of affable now that he has the burden lifted. He got all teary again when talking about the Pope. That experience really affected him in a profound way.

5. I've often thought of him as a somewhat decent person in a horrible job dealing with loonies in

his party.

6. It does appear that he was quite affected by the Pope's words, and is acting upon that effect.

7. He looks like a guy who just quit a terrible, terrible job.

I'd give a dollar to know what's going on in the background on both sides right now.

8. He is, but I would expect the rest of the leadership to vote NO.

Hopefully, there are enough sane republicans to pass the bill.

9. All I have heard on the table is a 2 month stopgap measure

Funding until December. Hopefully that is not the case.

11. I wonder if he will get a book deal to talk about what went down during

his Speakership. If he wrote a tell all book that would be very interesting.
