First, maybe.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Except for a hand full of back boned patriots they all might as well resign.

Perhaps GOPE should be replaced with GOPi; the Grand Old Party of invertebrates.

henry

Maybe they can get rid of Obama on their next bill.

Captain Hate on the iPad

NEXT!

FTL

A "clean" spending bill. Funding a network of baby chop shops is clean now.

If the sun explodes today or that Yellowstone supervolcano decides to blow, my last thought should be, "At least we had it coming."

Eric in Boise

Heh. Fox uses "Speaker Shock" as its headline, but Drudge wins again with "One Last Cry".

Beasts of England

So my speculation was correct? Boehner's head in exchange for PP funding?

Old Lurker

Looks like it Beasts.

centralcal

Now, if only McConnell would also resign.

matt

As for me, I won't shed a tear.

Beasts of England

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

How in the heck does the 'leadership' think that giving up Boehner will compensate for continuing to fund the dem agenda. It makes it even worse. So scared to have balls that they'd sacrifice the Speaker, instead of fighting for their base.

Bullshit

narciso79

yes, under no condition, do they stand on principle,

henry

From our lurking friend:

Please correct Beasts for me.

"It's not funding the Dem agenda. It's funding the DC Agenda."

Beasts of England

We are blessed to have some truly brilliant people here and I hope that one of them will explain to me how this is a win for the base - because I don't see it. At all.

Beasts of England

Well, that's the real explanation, henry. Thanks, ChiLurker!

matt

As in Europe it's an inside game. Cronies of both parties. Byzantine waste and fraud. Zero accountability and now, an ever thinning veneer of law and justice.

I wonder which lobbying firm Boehner will join. His Oompa Loompa schtick should play well.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Tossing OrangeDrank and caving on funding the beast is exactly the wrong signal to send and I hope Trump, Carly, Carson and Cruz are ready to make that exact point.

henry

Its a "let them eat cake" move from the beltway. Boehner will be in a high profile, high pay lobbying job in no time at all. Probably head of the Chamber.

narciso

that's why I went with the Who, on the other thread,

Has McCarthy been around DC as long as Rubio and Cruz?

I'm not following: for the GOP congress to preserve Planed Parenthood funding, Boehner resigned his seat?

why not get him a job at PP-at least he can finally be honest.

Ha. I've been in a text war with the daughter. I said,well at least the "crazies" represent their constituents,unlike some people I could name.
Our lurking friend is correct (waves from Maine) it is about the DC agenda, the "process."

“After all, the public has a right to know how its money is being spent,” Macdonald said.

GUS

This is EXACTLY what is wrong with AMERICA.

There is ZERO REASON that THE DEATH HUT should get one cent in tax money. Yet deals are being made and careers ended to save a HALF BILLION in funding for a business that murders babies and sells their parts.
Boehner is CATHOLIC.

Thanks, Tonto. This could be a real morale booster!

thanks for the Wrechard link.

The idea that news coverage on any network of a Presidential is subject to a negotiation process is..., I don't know, profoundly weird.

I do not understand why Boehner resigning has anything to do with funding PP?

I read the report rse linked two threads ago

(http://static.politico.com/8c/3c/79ac689c4666b76c261aab4907ae/report-on-stem-workforce.pdf)

It's every bit as horrifying as she said it was. And it's clear that far too many in the GOP are on board with the agenda presented there and the steps planned to implement it. Or, at best, they are unable to see or comprehend just how toxic it is.

MM (I think) posted in the previous thread that we survived the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl and many other massive calamities. But this is different, because the very abilities and habits and knowledge that enabled us to survive them are all being deliberately warped and destroyed.

People like Boehner, and McTurtle, and most likely whoever the new Speaker will end up being, are all OK with this madness, and that makes them enemies just as surely as the progs are.

rich@gmu

pagar-

yeah, i'm stumped. I need the coloring book version.

narciso

it's maskirovna, deception, that was their strategy all along,

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

I'm presuming the supposed scenario is the conservatives in congress are so fed up with Boehner they would agree not to "shut down" the government in exchange for his head in the hopes the new guy won't be same as the old guy.

Marlene

Ext @ 11:53...yes and the Democrats are questioning the legality. In the meantime,LePage and the Maine GOP are preparing citizen initiatives to place on the ballot for welfare reform and eliminating the state income tax. LePage is done working with the Dems in the legislature. The moonbats are calling him the "ungovernor."

Janet S.

Maine mayor pushing bill to post welfare recipients’ addresses online

I think that is a good idea.
anecdotally ... we knew a family that lived in subsidized housing, listing only the father's income.
But they had 2 grown kids that lived there & worked too. The mom worked for cash being a nanny. We knew them because the youngest daughter played travel soccer & the team paid her fees.
Everyone in the family had a car, cellphones,...they had cable TV, season tickets for Kings Dominion (like 6 Flags) & local sports teams.

At the time, we had 1 car, no cell phone, no cable TV, no AC, & were paying for their daughter. I don't know...it all gets too weird.
Life is choices.
Some cultures don't think anything about taking whatever they can get for free.
I'd be ashamed.

Like negotiations to keep ears off limits or to limit questions asked because the candidate already answered a few questions.

Is that what you mean, Appalled?

Same here.

ok. so the GOP goes along with PP funding but Boehner gets to spend some quality time at the bar ...

1. Fund the Dem agenda.
2. Sack a leader who funded the Dem agenda.
3. Continue to fund the Dem agenda.

What our lurker was saying is that it's not a win for the base, it's a win for DC. And hopefully the dupes will be placated by Boehner being vacated.

Xi and Obama agreed not to "conduct cybertheft of intellectual property."

That would be because there isn't any left to steal?

Note: stealing SSN's, fingerprints, etc is still cool.

rich@gmu

so it is just more failure theater Iggy? a bit more grand, but otherwise ...

what would prevent the Dems from voting for a shutdown ... if the opening bid was the Speaker of the House?

DebinNC

He's in his 40s iirc, but Rubio looks too young and "round cheeked" to be POTUS. A month or two of MOzo's Rules for Eating with fix him right up.

Father Conroy, a native of Washington state, is only the second Catholic priest, and the first Jesuit, to serve the House. He was nominated after the House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Catholic who graduated from Jesuit-run Xavier University, said he wanted a Jesuit to replace Father Daniel Coughlin, who served for 10 years and was the House’s first Catholic chaplain.

This is how I understand the "process". The Senate will not defund Planned Parenthood, thanks to Ayotte,Collins,Murkowski and several other RINOs. Boehner's first priority was to keep the government from shutting down. The conservatives would have made a motion to vacate the chair. He supposedly didn't have the votes,he's fed up with dealing with the conservatives,they've been the bane of his existence.
So,he's done.

TK:

My prior comment was said in my role as entertainer...er...observer, and was not an attack on Trump (for once). I am trying to visualize Hillary, for example, having a long talk with the head of NBC News about what questions reporters could ask her -- and that being the stuff of tweets and internet posts. I could see Hillary wanting to have the conversation, but I can't see the network doing it (at least in the public way all this seems to be going down with Fox.)

It really is interesting -- probably because Trump delivers ratings, and a lot of loyal Fox News viewers are also Trump supporters.

I have to wonder about the organization or maybe disorganization of Hillary's campaign. For instance,Bernie is the keynote speaker at the Portsmouth (NH) Democratic Committee banquet tonight. Hillary should have been scheduled to speak at that event months ago. Maybe she declined,she hasn't done many yuge events. Not that I care,but her organization seems weak.

the bit about history rhyming:

Nixon's first challenger was Michigan Governor George W. Romney. A Gallup poll in mid-1967 showed Nixon with 39%, followed by Romney with 25%. However, Romney, after a fact finding trip to Vietnam, told a news reporter that he had been "brainwashed" by the military and the diplomatic corps into supporting the Vietnam War; the remark led to weeks of ridicule in the national news media. Since he had turned against American involvement in Vietnam, Romney planned to run as the anti-war Republican version of Eugene McCarthy.[39]

Nixon subsequently came with the margin of error with Johnson, by the fall of '67
