How John Boehner Could Lose His Speakership

Posted by on Thu, Jan 30, 2014 at 6:00 AM

Immigration reform:

[Pat] Buchanan cautioned John Boehner against the pursuit of immigration reform, saying it would be his “last hurrah” and arguing that it would spell the end of his speakership.

Also flipping out: Ann Coulter, Jeff Sessions, and Ted Cruz. Just in time for the start of 2014 Congressional election season!

Good. Use your aggressive feelings, GOP. Let the hate flow through you.

John Boehner would use a wood chipper to slaughter his family rather than lose his "Speakership". As with previous attempts, rumors of his demise are overblown. He knows were all the bodies are buried...

@5 - Ugh. No doubt. Her racism isn't even subtly hidden. (Even Koreans could see that)

Coulter is a carnival barker. She says stuff she knows will enrage liberals and tickle conservatives because that's how she makes her money. All style, no substance. Pretty much a female version of Bill O'Reilly

Pat Buchanan was also predicting a Romney/Ryan victory on the eve of the 2012 election, despite all evidence to the contrary.

@7 No, Ann Coulter is The Thing.

Of course Ted Cruz would oppose immigration.

Are there enough republicans left to even consider them a threat? I thought stupidity among voters was dwindling. Lets all hope that registered voters think about who they want to represent them. Look at their past, see how they represented their constituents and what the outcome of their representation of YOUR vote made any difference in your life. You pay their wages, they probably didn't earn them but YOU elected them, so if you want a change then vote for the person that represents your feelings.
