I had been thinking that he would lose his giant enormous rilly rilly big gavel over this. Then it occurred to me that he is exactly the dupe the corrupt House Republicans set him up to be.

If he had any pride, he'd resign as Speaker but we all know he doesn't have that. A coup could be forthcoming though.

Sigh -- I don't expect Cedric Richmond is a whole lot better than a classic Tory backbencher like Bill Cassidy...but Richmond is on the lesser-of-evils team...and looks to br representing some of my neighbors. The line in one spot is barely a block away.

As far as Boehner resigning, I suspect they might make him Dennis Hastert redux, a figurehead with no real power. But will Cantor stick around as Majority Leader or does he go down with the ship as well?

Interesting question, inasmuch as my math, which may be flawed, says Cantor doesn't have the votes either.

he has to cry. we haven't seen him cry yet.

Oh, and while Boner [sic] is truly deserving, can I suggest a dishonorable mention Malaka for Wayne LaPierre?

A time of personal reckoning for Boehner ?

Surely the author of the article is trying to make a joke and I'm not getting it.

My guess ? Boehner tried to pull what he has pulled for the last 4 years. Negotiating with Obama on one plan while covertly trying to pass a Plan B which contains all the things he wanted to do beforehand - without any sign of compromise. By the time Obama finds out, it would be too close to the deadline.

In short, pretending to negotiate and even putting things down on paper. Then, at the last moment, pull out and insist that you never agreed to any such thing.
