The first order of business for Republicans in the new Congress which begins next month is replacing Boehner as Speaker. This is the same sort of politics we would have gotten had Mitt Romneycare been elected President. Why bother with an opposition Party like this? I need a job desperately and so do millions of other people. We DO NOT need tax increases persecuting job creators!!!!!!!! Boehner is the U.S. answer to Canada's Instant Replay "Conservative" Prime Minister Joe Clark. Clark ran on a tax cutting platform then announced the greatest tax increase in Canadian history in his first speech before Commons after being elected PM. The upshot was a vote of "no confidence," an immediate new election. and return of Pierre Eliot Trudeau.

Hmmmm, go figure.....ehhh?

IMO, Texas needs to move up by at least a month in the next presidential primary. I think this step would help some of the GOP's woes by giving a principled republican/conservative a boost in delegates and notoriety within the RNC before it becomes too late in primary season....just say'n

Yes, Texas would be quite a feather for a conservative running for POTUS, were it to be earlier in the primary season.

Alot blue and purple states get their say within the RNC looooong before TX. We wonder why we lost in 08 and 12......me thinks, that the nom. cant distinguish themselves. And the only reason GWB won TX, is because he was the Gov. of TX. GWB's compassionate conservatism was a liberal pandering play, had he been gov of another state, Democrats would have the WH for 24 straight yrs because McCain or some other Rino would have lost to Gore and Kerry.

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...
