But then Speaker Boehner had to go and resign,and as his last act give no fucks and just get Democrats to join the non-crazy GOP in voting for a clean CR.
Though given the hilarious impotent rage this engendered in Freepers, it might have been worth it. They will not soon forget this day, and I expect they will be even more paranoid and crazy from now on.
Poor DoughtyOne vastly overestimates how many Republicans want a shutdown (it's like 40 of them):
If he gets every Democrat vote, that still leaves him far short of enough votes...chris37's prediction is right, absent the conspiracy around it.
...unless Republicans cave.
That’s where we draw the line. No “R” votes.
Our side needs to play hardball on this.
I think that this resignation is a ploy to create cover for the GOP to waste the rest of the time we gave them in 2014.Sorry dude, no shutdown for you.
It is nothing but more kabuki theater. Make conservatives think they got in win when in fact that got absolutely nothing.
Losing Boner means nothing when he is replaced with a clone.
TruthWillWin sticks to the usual Freeper theory when a Republican isn't as crazy as they are:
Must still being blackmailed?E. Pluribus Unum thinks Boehner is a latent...something?
The little latent is going full passive-aggressive scorched-Earth.ONce you start looking for people reaching for the stabbed-in-the-back image, stuff like Tolerance Sucks Rocks's post is everywhere!
My back is seriously hurting from all the knives that Boehner and McConnell have put there.Ray76 doesn't want Boehner to quit, he wants him fired!
Time to have that vote to vacate the chair. Throw him out of the Speakership NOW.RitaOK wants Boehner escorted out of Congress by the police:
What about the BS he is about to deliver?? Most every day resignees are escorted to the front door, on demand, by an armed guard. Have you no idea how much damage to records and agenda movements that are at risk when some jerk decides to vacate without notice?????????RitaOK also goes full Title Case Official Sounding Language:
Our country deserves the police escort in this case every bit as much, but MORE.
The Fundamental Transformation of Our Side of the Aisle, and in both Houses of Congress, is now a clear and present danger.WENDLE lays out how to convince America of your case via having a destructive tantrum:
Gawd, I detest this baby killing son of a Bitc4 !! I hate the ba$tard,If you remember his spotlight, you might guess what word Carl Vehse has to describe Boehner
Here is all you need to do. Defund the slaughter and sale of body parts on humans and tell obama to shut down the government to save killing babies and selling their quivering hearts in a pie pan for $60!! Why are the republicrats so evil????
"Dude. He’s resigning. Because he doesn’t want to deal with the BS. Take the victory."editor-surveyor is tracking completely:
That's too lenient for a traitor.
Almost every act he has performed as Speaker has been treason.editor-surveyor also randomly indicates that Trump is some kinda figure of prophecy:
Literally nothing he has done is in the interest of the nation he swore to in taking office.
The governments of men have not yet become the governments of Yehova.I wonder if Greg123456 ever bothers with reality:
That is after the Last Trump.
My prediction: Boehner switches parties on Oct 30 and announces he’s running for president as a ‘Rat’ to replace Hillary, who will be breaking rocks in the pen.If Cyman encountered an actual left wing Democrat, he might explode:
If there ever was any doubt that he has been lovingly functioning as a dyed in the wool liberal left wing Democrat, all pretense is now gone.V K Lee doesn't want to be dramatic, but Boehner has destroyed America:
That this SOB sticks that finger in the nation’s eye, he has signed the death warrant of the United States of America. This is war with a pox on him and his entire family of rinos. The GOPe —rest their wicked, evil souls. JB, may you fry in that tanning booth as if it were the depths of hell itself.
