You libby libs go ahead and laugh - but one day it'll be you at the business end of a boner - as you get mercilessly ass-farked by Obamacare, big government and your climate change false prophets.

Speaker Boehner is a reasonable politician who isn't afraid to sit down at the negotiating table. If you think stalling is all he can do - Zeerohhhwbahmahhhhhw's got something special for you...

As bad a Speaker of the House Boehner is I hate to think about the alternatives. Do we really dare consider that POS Cantor to be third in line for the Presidency?
 
2012-12-12 04:14:26 PM
His own is the only job I'll ever believe he has any interest in
 
2012-12-12 04:17:06 PM
I had be curious if his job was on the line ... guess so.

I think it would be terrifying, not hilarious. Boehner has no visible support from his caucus.

Nothing's going to get done in the next 2 years anyway. Let the House go full retard so the right will really get whipped in '14 (well, as far as gerrymandering will let it)

NBC/WSJ poll, .pdf

59% said they believe Obama won a mandate in the election to eliminate Bush tax cuts for those earning $250k or more.

53% of Americans approve of the way Obama is handling his job (best since Jan. 2011), 43% disapprove.

30% see GOP favorably, 45% unfavorably (was 36-43 in October). 44% see Dems favorably, 35% unfavorably (42-40 in Oct.)

69% of NBC/WSJ respondents said they expect 2013 to be a time of division where there's little willingness to compromise.

Cantor isn't widely liked either. He's got a good core of 30 retarded teahadists lined up behind him but that's it. I could picture him making a go at the job but I doubt he'd get it.

Won't the cliff cost jobs?

Probably mostly in defense spending, so the corporations involved will be affected. But there's a lot of waste there, building stuff the forces don't want just to keep jobs in house districts.

So bring back the WPA. At least the country got useful stuff out of that.

I'd love to see Cantor take the gavel. Obviously, Bachmann would be even better, but she reminds the R-ape party too much of Pelosi.

I still don't get the crying thing with that guy. I'm not a no-crying guy or anything. Let it out, buddy. It feels good. But it's not just crying or not crying; there are ways of crying. There are even ways that demonstrate discipline and strength, and part of that is context. But turning into a blubbery mess with your little hankie and your chin all a-quiver because you're just overwhelmed emotionally by Ann Romney's speech at the RNC? That's kind of worrisome. That's like... those are pregnancy emotions. Not Speaker of the House emotions.

So what I don't get is how a bunch of people actually sat down together and thought about who among them they wanted to elect to be the guy who goes head to head with the President, who meets with him one-on-one and works for the interests of his party.

Is it like a joke? Like, Boehner is a joke that the Republicans in the house have played on Obama, making him sit down to meet with the weird sad guy? Is it their way of telling Obama how little they respect him? I don't get it.

Boehner has all kinds of cuts on the top of his thighs from a plastic knife that he keeps in his pocket to let him feel something other than sorrow.

If the GOP is serious about any kind of change they will nominate a moderate. If they pick a Teatard expect them to double down on the derp for two years.

Unless those jobs involve infrastructure or investments in education. Fark roads and schools. We need more carriers and submarines.

Hey, Barry. Can you give me some space on this budget shiat? 'Cause I really can't put up with these tea-tards anymore; this'll be my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

Is that it? He's dancing on the fiscal cliff, exposing the middle class to tax increases and potentially farking the economy if you buy all the hype, for political purposes? Nice. Party before country, even in the white house.
