The more I read Conn's defenders comments the more I think either Boehner needs to go immediately or it's time for a 3rd party.
He doesn't have the votes for whatever TINY marginal compromise because most of the legislators in this Tea Party wave are unwilling to compromise on what they were elected for simply to try and roll the logs along. Which I agree with, we control an entire house of the legislature and Boehner acts like he has no hand at all. If he represents the Republican party, it's time to split. If not, he needs to be dumped sooner than soon.
