Boehner to Resign From Congress

Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, announced on Friday that he would resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, as Congress moved to avert a government shutdown.

    Good riddance to the pathetic lick-spittle. A ‘man’ eminently positioned to improve the public’s perception of the political process managed to discredit it further and himself completely.

      Did Limp Boehner ever stand up to Obama like a man? I’d say no.

      • Millie_Woods

        No, but he did manage to turn many republicans against their party.

      • Xavier

        No, but he bent over like a man.

        Not to worry, for every GOP quisling that steps down, there are 2 ready to step up.
        I’d like to see Cruz as house speaker. He’d make Gingrich look like an amateur.

    When “government shutdown” = spending more money to keep people out of parks and monuments, we know that all is lost.
