    Not so hard, really. A majority of the House Republicans did not want to pass a clean CR, and voted against it. They also said they’d vote Boehner out of his chair if he allowed a clean CR to go through unopposed, and he didn’t want to have to stand up (for anything). So he mollified the majority of House Republicans by delaying the clean CR for 16 days, then allowed the clean CR to go through, and managed to keep his chair so he won’t have to stand (for anything).

    Ahhhh….Obama and the Socialists have accumulated 6 Trillion in debt and no plan to cope with it and you have the gall to talk about Republicans who just want the printing presses to stop???? Talk about stupidity and hypocrisy.

    Oh, please. Did anyone raise a ruckus when the Republicans raised the debt ceiling numerous times during the Bush Administration? Does anyone make a fuss over the pork barrel spending Republican law makers tack on to spending bills? Both parties engage in deficit spending. Both parties engage in wasteful spending. If you honestly think this is a problem with just the Democrats, you are a fool.

    Did you not notice the near economic depression in 2008? Yes there is debt. President Bush and Obama reacted appropriately to address the economic crisis. That cost money. Under President Obama that debt is now coming down. Under President Bush the debt went in one direction – Up. Due to overly costly Medicare prescription drug benefit and two costly wars, one optional and one poorly executed.

    I agree.
    The last election Boehner had a very small Majority electing him as house speaker. After this MESS, The GOP and The Tea Party is going to have to blame someone. The Cartoon should have Boehner going to the Gilotine.

    Does that count the $6 trillion he added to the books that GWB accumulated off the books?

    Boehner was standing for the wrong things.

    Well, except when it comes to war and the military, or corporate subsidies; Republicans can’t throw enough money in those holes.. But if you just keep those “off the books”, then all the numbers add up and everything’s golden!

    It’s easy to tell where Boehner stands; he stands wherever there’s the least danger of him losing his position of power.
    Unfortunately for him, while we may never know how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, for “Speakers of the House” the answer is “zero”.
