Of COURSE Boehner is the 'first to open the door'. He doesn't suit up for the game much less actually play. Then the tears... The man has no cojones or shame. But the other RINOs will eagerly vote for him again. No wonder nobody likes repubicans. I certainly don't
Before the election ballots were fully counted last week, equity markets were sending President Obama a blunt vote of no confidence.

Forget all the political pundits who were heralding his narrow popular vote victory as a mandate for his soak-the-rich tax agenda. The sour message from the investment community that fuels our economy spoke volumes about a fundamentally status quo election.

The capital markets, stricken by uncertainty and sitting on nearly $2 trillion in cash, fear the weak, sub-par, jobless Obama economy isn't going to be significantly different in a second term than it was in his first.
