Add your reply. Boehner will not lose the Speakership, he raises too much money & uses it as a power broker. We lose again...

Eric Cantor is the one who really troubles me - he seems awfully wishy washy. I think Boehner sees himself as a statesman and believes in compromise. Unfortunately, we can't compromise with the progressive (socialist) agenda or we are lost. I hope Boehner finally understands this.

Boehner needs to go, anyone who trust obama, should not be our speaker of the house. Rand Paul nailed it , they work for us and they seem to forget it. Any other president would have been IMPEACHED, exspecially over Bengozi and let alone he's not an American.

Supposedly in the past 2 elections nearly 100 candidates of the TEA Party persuasion were elected to the House of Representatives. Only 12 of the necessary 17 votes needed to block Boehner from retaining his Speaker position could be found. Lose his position (especially his bent-over one)?

Boehner has been more of fence straddling appeaser that a fighter. Granted he has had his moments of strenght. He has stood strong on some issues. BUT, when push comes to shove he usualy tries to seek middle ground or folds altogether.

If the Republicans cave say goodbye to your Party. Boehner has proven to have no Balls and needs to be put out with John McCain and Lindsey Graham.
