somedude210: Ah, the forces of POTATO, is there anything more terrifying and so blatAntly stupid?
MmmmBacon: At least then he would have a shred of dignity left.
xanadian: All of this brought Boehner to his lowest point last week, when he vented his frustrations at reporters, saying, "Do you have an idea? They'll just shoot it down anyway." So now, as The New Republic's Noam Scheiber posits, Boehner might just let his colleagues take aim at their own collective foot.Wow. These are the days when it is *not* good to be Boehner.
FlashHarry: weakest. speaker. ever.
Coco LaFemme: This would imply there are days when it's good to be John Boehner.

These are the days when it is *not* good to be Boehner.This would imply there are days when it's good to be John Boehner. The Republicans in Congress are terrorists, pure and simple. They're holding the country hostage because they're petulant little twats who hate the President and want to see everything he does go down in flames, even if the rest of the country suffers because of that. I wish we could put them all on an ice floe and send them far, far away.
RobertBruce: Good. This has nothing to do with Obama. 100 years of federal reserve farkery amd 80 years of government expansion has gotten us to this point.
Diogenes: Boehner has absolutely no spine. Maybe he should try actually leading some time.
odinsposse: FlashHarry: weakest. speaker. ever.To be fair to Boehner he's dealing with an unusually dumb and radical faction in Congress. Only Tea Partiers would think that the best way to reduce our debt is to attack our credit rating, which increases our debt. How do you even begin to reason with someone who thinks like that?
MmmmBacon: The best thing Boehner could do at this point is hold a press conference, and very publicly resign. He should state that the reason for this resignation is that the forces currently in control of the GOP, are in fact, quite insane, and will stop at nothing to destroy the government. He should name names, shame every Teahadist responsible for this debacle, and make it very clear that the only reason the House and Senate can't get anything done is because of these right-wing extremists.At least then he would have a shred of dignity left.

vernonFL: I actually feel bad for Boehner. He should resign as Speaker and let the crazies take over.
Dusk-You-n-Me: The House will pass this bill. Tea partiers everywhere will rejoice. And that will be it. Harry Reid will just laugh and toss it in the dustbin.Boehner will then beg the lunatic wing of his party to get serious. They will threaten to hold their breaths until their faces turn blue. Boehner will sigh and toss off a pro forma speech about how President Obama needs to "get serious" about the deficit. He will then spend some time with Eric Cantor, and ask him for permission to pass a grown-up CR with some Democratic votes. If Cantor decides to let him, that's what he'll do. If not, there will be a government shutdown accompanied by dancing in the streets and solemn promises to hold out forever. Link
GhostFish: Well, that's it then. The last, weak enforcement of structured order has been swept aside.Want to run the government of the USA?All you need is an incredibly loud and dedicated minority in one half of one branch of the government.Good luck out there, mother farkers.
shifty lookin bleeder: RobertBruce: Good. This has nothing to do with Obama. 100 years of federal reserve farkery amd 80 years of government expansion has gotten us to this point.To the point of the most militarily capable and economically productive nation in the history of the earth? Those bastards!
