    Boehner is too busy golfing. (Boehner has time for 100 rounds a year, versus Obama’s rather feeble 100 rounds per term).

    More credible then the clown in the White House.

    Republicans do NOT WANT there to be any progress made by the country.
    -
    So, by that criterion, Boehner is a perfect Republican leader. He can content himself with handing out lobbyist’s checks on the House floor, interrupted by the occasional repeal of Obamacare.

    Corrupt and self righteous about it.

    Oh I don’t know, they have what passed many bills and budgets on time. That can not be said of Obama and the Senate. Seems to me the R’s in the House are the only ones doing any sort of job in DC.

    “More credible then the clown in the White House.”

    Your sole criterion in that assessment is their political affiliation.

    The nation as a whole would have benefited had Boehnor, Pelosi, Reid, and McConnall ALL stepped down from their leadership positions to let younger and more open minds to lead the parties out of the pit in which our Congress has fallen. Of the four, only Boehnor showed any willingness to work with the President, but that faded as soon as he talked to his hard right conservatives in the House.
    As I look at the improvements in the stock market, the housing market, the job market, and in other places, I can only wonder where our nation would be if the parties had actually worked together to help our nation and to give the President’s plan a chance to work. Dems were arrogant and Reps were obstructionist and the President failed to push either party until just recently, but the scandals have shut down that effort.
    I miss the illusion that we are an united people. There was always bad things going on, but it seemed as if we were working our way out of it. But the reverse is true.
    Too many of our people have become mean spirited, rude, and hateful in words and even in deeds. People kill over words with which they disagree. So many threats to our nation and our world, and all we can do is be mean to each other.
    Why?
    Dispiritedly,
    C.

    I don’t know whether Boehner is a sot or not, but in doing a search using “boehner drinking” I went through the first five pages of hits and could find no credible source for Matt’s cartoon. Bob Ney makes that accusation (and others), but under the cloud over him there is no way to tell whether it’s sour grapes or real. I was really looking forward to some good dirt, too.

    “Oh I don’t know, they have what passed many bills and budgets on time.”

    True. They have passed budgets with tax cuts for the “job creators” and no changes to defense, while clear-cutting social programs. They themselves know there is no chance of passage, even if the Senate were reasonable, so basically they are posturing, not getting anything done.

    Other “accomplishments”: a bill allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built, with amendments about pollution control, and requiring the companies who benefit to contribute to a clean-up fund for the inevitable spill defeated. Another example of Republican leadership: voting to prioritize our assets, preparing for default.

    If the idea of taking more time to plan for default than to plan to avoid it doesn’t make your blood boil, their priorities are foreign investors. An amendment to change priority to FDIC and veteran’s benefits was voted down by the Republicans. So, China and Iran, yes. Your money in the bank: should’a put it under the mattress. And we support the troops, unless you want benefits.

    That kind of “leadership” we can do without.

    Instead we now use Waran Buffets trains which are more dangerous and instead of getting a cut and some jobs the USA is out of the loop and China gets the oil. "
    ..

    No that is not how that works and the Senate would not even look at it let alone debate it like they should have. By debating it they might have come up with something as good if not better. But The D in the Senate had better things to do. like birth control or some other lib dream.
