House Democrats Get Their Revenge By Telling Boehner He’s On His Own With Coup

boehner-face-485-wide

Speaker of the House John Boehner ignored House Democrats for years, and now they are not going to help him fight off a coup attempt from his fellow Republicans.

House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) made the first comment by Democratic leadership on the potential toppling of Boehner, “It’s not our responsibility to try to solve their divisions.”

The chairman of the Democratic Caucus, Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) let it be known that Democrats aren’t going to take sides in the Republican Party’s civil war, “Like the Syrian Civil War, I’m not sure it’s easy to discern which side anyone is on.”

If Democrats stay out of the vote to topple Boehner, the Speaker of the House might be seriously screwed. Boehner needs House Democrats to at least vote present on a measure to require him to vacate the chair because it would lower the number of votes required for the Speaker to keep his position.

Democrats are in no hurry to help Boehner because he has ignored their help and ideas for years. Speaker Boehner only came knocking on the Democrats’ doors when he needed votes to pass bills that he didn’t have enough support on his own to pass.

House Democrats have bailed Boehner out of numerous Republican caused crisis over the years, but Democrats were given nothing in return. House Democrats saved Boehner’s hide for the good of the country in the past, but the Ohio Republican’s ingratitude means that Democrats are more than happy to let Boehner figure this one out on his own.

  1. Both McConnell and Boehner should be sued for all
    tax revenues wasted by their political masturbation
    since 2009! Mic drops…

  2. The title ought to be as follows:

    “House Democrats Get Their Revenge By Telling Boehner He’s On His Own With Coup”

    That’s “He’s On His Own” not “His On His Own”.

  3. I see the President’s new attitude is, at last, rubbing off (trickling down?) Whatever, it is refreshing to see. Now let’s watch the infighting over who should take over for the incompetent one…I vote for Nancy!!

  4. payback is a bitch, Chump..

    REALLY enjoying the lesson in responsible governance provided by Boehner and Pinhead Mitch….

  5. I hope they pick the most insane bat shit crazy in their caucus. Maybe then ignorant Americans will wake up and realize that the republican party should have no part of governing in the 21st century.

  6. Maybe Gozar the destroyer from Arizona. He is off to good start by appearing with Cliven Bundy but being the catholic refuse to attend the popes speech

  7. Someone turned the lights on didn’t they? Roaches are scattering. Serves those Roaches right. Run johnny! Run! The n…..neva… mind..had a Temptation minute. I still got the album DJ, still got it. In mint condition.

  8. My $$$ is on the hog castrater from IA. They need someone to lead them around by the balls to get anything done.

  9. Dearly beloved, our drunk one has finally…Sobered up? Serves the SOB right, next, the bitch in the other wing. Stay tuned, but have the popcorn ready, it’s going to get rough.

  10. Boehner seems to be the type of person who thumbs his nose at those he doesn’t like or agree with and dogs them out—until he needs them. Then he comes around and acts like he always loved you! I’m glad House dems are letting him fight his own battles. If I were a member of the House, I wouldn’t vote to save his hide, and I wouldn’t vote “present,” either. Boehner brought this on himself by being a weak leader who let the nutso Tea Partiers push him around. He created the opening for this insurrection, and they walked through it and are now threatening to bring him DOWN.

  11. I think the tears will never stop flowing if he loses his cherished Speakership. Grinning uncontrollably right now.

  12. After inviting Bibi behind President Obama’s back, he can fight his own battles.What an insult that was.

  13. No way…having Nancy P as speaker now, leading up to the election would be a really bad idea. The GOP then could blame the dems for all the crap they piled on the American people.

  14. Well, first she would have to FIND them. From all indications there is not one decent set among the entire group of sorry excuses for “representatives”.

  15. He is in the process of building a large, luxurious retirement home in Florida. Question is “What is he retiring FROM, since he has hardly worked for years”

  16. I don’t want to be a pessimist, but I see the gop caving on the planned parenthood issue. That’s the only way they can save Boners ass.

  17. Agreed. They screwed up the teaser line too.
    “…and now they not going to help him fight”

    If I were supervising editor, I’d seriously council that ‘writer’ to care enough to do it right, or find a different job.

  18. Not the least bit of sympathy for Boehner. He created his mess, let him clean it up.

    Hopefully his departure would welcome some fresh air in the House.

  19. Anyway you spell it. It ain’t gonna happen. What is said and done in the open is fiction. It’s what happens behind the scenes that tells the tale. They aren’t called parties for nothing. FOLLOW THE MONEY.

  20. We should be very thankful he doesn’t have to worry so much about what the “Party” says now. He can be more his own man. He hasn’t only had to fight the republicans he has had to fight the people that are democrats in name only too.

  21. Or how about the latest self-righteous douche from Wisconsin, Glenn Grothman? He’s a newbie in DC, but give him time…….

  22. You can’t trust a drunk or a republican. No, I will go all the way, a politician. I have been able to see how the Party leaders supposedly on President Obama’s side has pressured him all these years. And he was more or less forced into a lot of things he is smart enough to know better. I can’t see him willingly trusting Bohner over and over, every one has to answer to someone. He had to do what he was told too.
    Now he doesn’t have to worry about the party so much and can be more the President we were hoping for. Just imagine how much he could have accomplished if he hadn’t had to waste all these years fighting for every inch.

  23. Honestly, I really don’t think Boehner cares one way or another. The man has looked and acted numb for the past years.

  24. Yes, and also, the plural of ‘crisis’ should be ‘crises.’

    Bad spelling should be left to the conservatives.

  25. …I can tell ya with dead-accurate “Fk”ing certainty they DON’T want me to be the GD Speaker…lol

  26. The house has been useless since before Bill Clinton came to office. Boener is dysfunctional and any new crazy they install will help highlight the failure of half of congress. I say let him fry.

  27. There won’t be any fresh air in the House until we elect a Democratic majority and dump the idiotic republicans that have all but destroyed this country with their traitorous, regressive, obstructionist tactics.

  28. It’s good to see the Democrats let Boehner sink. There’s nothing in it for the Democrats to help him hold the House leadership. The House is incorrigible. Let it get worse. The display will be good for the American public to see.

  29. Time to let Boehner to “Carry his Own Cross”. Doesn’t make any difference helping him.
    He is inconsequential for progress and resolution of the Country’s Issues.
    Does more Harm, if Anything !

  30. Why should the Dems help him? He has treated the Dems, as well as President Obama very poorly. So we might get a TP speaker, but nothing gets done through Boehner anyway…so its a wash.

    At least the American people may see now how much the right hates our country and its people.

  31. An unenviable position but he took it on, Speaker, he has had a tough time, from HIS Party. I do actually feel sorry for him, he got screwed by the Koch Brothers, & their kind.

    He used to be an actual moderate Republican, but there are precious few of them left.

    GOP is toast.
