Yes, but will it firm up his whiskey dick as well?

Poor Boehner hasn't been the same since Cantor walked in and took his balls during the debt ceiling fiasco last year.

With a name like Boehner, I'd figure his hand would already be strong.

Is he even going to stay the Speaker of the House?

Far as I can tell, there isn't really anyone, Democrat or Republican, that don't see him as anything more than an orange drunken crying falure.

The House has been broken since Newt Gingrich determined that every single piece of legislation must be written along party lines,

This. If an Obama win deflates the tea/gas bag faction of the republicans, it may help Boehner solidify control.

And it would be good for Obama - Boehner is a prick and spiteful, but is also rational. He agreed to compromises on the budget among other issues but couldn't sell it to the tea party loons.
 
2012-09-25 07:10:26 AM
I agree with Clinton in theory, but in practice, it would require that Boehner grow a backbone. Which is frankly doesn't have.

Nah, I predict they'll double down on the derp.

"The reason Romney lost is because he wasn't a real conservative. Given a choice between a liberal and a sort-of-liberal, the American people chose the real liberal, because at least they knew what they were getting. If we are to win in 2016, we will have to present voters with a true, hardcore conservative."

interesting...of Boehner and Cantor.

That the good ol' boy is the moderate compromiser.
And the straight-laced suit is the extremist and instigator.

But I'm sure Boehner will love having an excuse to put Cantor in his place...the snippetty shiat.

Yes, the fact that Hillary is not out there campaigning for Obama is surely a sign of internal dissent and weakness within the Obama Administration. Otherwise, she'd be on the handshaking and baby kissing circuit for her boss, like when Condoleezza Rice stumped for Bush 43, Madeline Albright for Clinton, or James Baker for Bush 41, or Alexander Haig for Reagan, or Henry Kissinger for Nixon.

Oh wait... they didn't.

The Secretary of State does not actively participate in political campaigns, because the holder of that office needs to be perceived as representing the interests of the United States of America, rather than his/her political party.

Also, it is actually illegal for the SoS to do so.

He's assuming the Republicans move to the center after the loss. It could go the other way. They could toss Boehner out as Speaker and install Cantor.

From there, things in the House either get even more contentious and obstructionist, or the party moderates revolt and start passing legislation with Democrats.

It will be interesting to see whioch way the republicans move should they lose in November. Good arguments could be made either way.

Should the Republicans lose the Presidential race and the Dems keep the Senate then there is a good chance the Republicans move toward the center. It would be the second election in a row were the Senate was within the GOP's grasp but was lost because of teabaggers. If the GOP fails to take the Senate then they'll probably move more to the center.

If the GOP wins the Senate then they have no reason to move toward the center. If they take the Senate, it would validate their the the extreme right wing message they've been pushing. If they win the Senate but lose the Presidential race then they'll blame Romney's loss on not being conservative enough. They'll move further right and in 2014 they'll be validated by winning more seats in the off year election.

I don't see a situation where Romney wins but the Dems keep the Senate. If Romney wins then it will be a GOP romp.

Possible, but the Senate may be a different animal. McConnell has ruled the caucus with an iron fist for years, and I doubt he'll be as willing to roll over for the teabaggers as Boehner was.

That said, I think you're right that a Senate win could embolden the House teabaggers even more. With the Senate under Republican control, the House can spend the next two years sending up English as the official language, flag burning bans, etc. to make Obama veto them.
 
2012-09-25 10:49:20 AM
There's also the assumption that Cantor will win his seat. I hear rumblings that suggest the possibility that Cantor might have a tough fight for his seat and could very well lose it, depending on how long Obama's coattails are.
 
2012-09-25 10:55:11 AM
Paul Ryan is also running for reelection. Maybe he'll be next speaker of the house.
 
2012-09-25 11:11:57 AM
Sorry but the GOP opened up Pandora's Box when they embraced the Tea Party and became anti-intellectuals. They have been trying to govern with the same tactics of a 6 year old on a playground and I don't see this changing anytime soon unless they start to embrace pragmatic leadership again.

I'm thinking this just because nobody trusts Romney. They need a GOP Mondale who is a true believer to get walloped in order to really see that the answer isn't that "he wasn't conservative enough". Although I am hopeful that the house will tighten and having the newly elected White House and Senate united staring down the fiscal cliff will give some motivation for a few representatives to break ranks and get what needs to happen done in spite of the previous prediction.
