BOO!

.... Close allies of Speaker John Boehner are worried that his conservative rivals could move to oust him as soon as next week.
YAY!

Removing a sitting speaker is exceedingly difficult, and such an effort would almost certainly fall short.
BOO!

Yet growing speculation about the possibility of it – coming after Friday’s embarrassing defeat at the hands of conservatives and House Democrats on the homeland security battle — shows how vulnerable the speaker has become.
YAY!

Frustration with the Ohio Republican is mounting after dozens of hardliners voted Friday against his three-week funding package for the Department of Homeland Security. Hours of frantic leadership meeting ensued. After some backroom maneuvering with Democrats, Boehner was able to push through a one-week bill to keep DHS open. Obama signed the bill into law just 10 minutes before a shutdown of the massive federal agency.
BOO!

The stinging rebuke of Boehner on the House floor infuriated his supporters, who accused opponents of handing Democrats a huge PR victory.
YAY!


“Some of these 52 [Republican who voted no] are more worried about protecting their own careers than protecting their constituents from ISIL. They are more worried about primaries than they are about the country,” said a GOP lawmaker close to Boehner, using an acronym for the Islamic State.

“This is all aimed at Boehner. They want to take Boehner out.”
YES!  USA! USA! USA!

Say Amen
