It is said that there are "rumors" of replacing Boehner as Speaker. The party base, that would be conservatives and those who support the objectives of the Tea Party movement, need to let the Republican Oligarchy know, in clear terms, that it is time for Boehner's departure. They should follow that demand with an equally clear message to the Oligarchs that they aren't on terra-firma either. The only way to end the game they play in Washington is to name new players.

The Republic is safe.

John Boehner’s no national dictator, we now know, set to ruin the economy by forcing it off the fiscal cliff in the same way that Rep. Paul Ryan did to that poor old lady in a wheel chair on TV.

No, Boehner’s got other ways to screw up the economy, ones that have the happy effect- for him- of keeping the government vortex flowing and sucking in all the money it can.  

The modest, emotional, cigarette-smoking Speaker of the House, you see, uses force only against conservatives who wish to stop the vortex, not against...
