Boehner will FINALLY resign!

First Cantor, now Boehner. Yeah, I think this was millions of Americans' reactions to the news of Johnny boy's resignation this morning. The time has come to turn the page, indeed!



I knew something was up while the Pope was speaking yesterday. Yeah, Biden always looks constipated, but Boehner looked especially emotional. Whatever the case, so long, farewell, good riddance, don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya, etc., etc....
NYT: Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, will resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October...
The New York Slimes immediately lobs the run-of-the-mill government shutdown fearmongering, 'throwing Congress into chaos' one-liner. And all the mainstreamers are mentioning what a hard time Boehner had trying to work between those damned 'tea party' conservatives and the lovable squish 'moderates', the loathsome bunch they are, but that was his Waterloo! Ultimately, Boehner showed no principle towards the party he was leading, siding more time than not with the opposition.

Now, being pragmatic about it, this could go one of two ways. Either something extraordinary is finally about to happen within the party, at least within the House (you know, actually standing up for something and up to Obama/Democrats/Media), or he's about to do something catastrophic. Considering the timing, right after laying out his agenda, and with debt ceiling and Planned Parenthood fights in the wings, this should give any and all non-Democrat go-alongs cause for concern.

So celebrate the news, but with caution and awareness. And a couple of hashtags to remember going into the selection of a new Speaker...

#NOTMcCarthy!
#FreedomCaucus?
and next...
#FIREMcConnell!

ADDENDUM: A stark warning via the Great One in a Breitbart exclusive...
Popular talk radio host and best-selling author Mark Levin is warning Republicans in Washington: don’t replace outgoing House Speaker John Boehner with Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Levin’s a tirelessly warrior against Speaker Boehner and the Washington establishment. “Kevin McCarthy is Eric Cantor with ten less IQ points,” Levin declares in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

The radio star adds Republicans must learn their lesson and not repeat the mistakes they made following Eric Cantor’s historic fall from power—namely that Republicans must replace Boehner with a “principled conservative.”

Levin explained that with the resounding defeat of the former-House Majority Leader, conservative voters made their voices heard and sent a clear message to the Republican establishment. Washington Republicans, however, refused to get the message.

“The Republican establishment never learned their lesson after Cantor… They replaced Cantor with McCarthy, who is a wheeler and dealer—he is not a principled conservative… My concern now is that they will do the same thing again,” Levin said. ...

Levin said that House conservatives—many of whom are a part of the House Freedom Caucus—need to demand better for their voters.

“Those thirty or so Republicans need to remain united” to elect a principled conservative leader who represents the interest of Republican voters, Levin explained. “Republicans could make a real difference now for the Party and for the country if we elect a Speaker or a Majority Leader who’s a conservative—such as Rep. Jim Jordan. But he’s just one example.”

“We need leaders who are solid, who are intelligent, who are strategic, who are constitutionalists, who can bring in– not just the mainstay of the Party– but demonstrate to millions of us in the grassroots that the message has finally been received. [We need to see that] there is a serious effort—not just a PR effort—but a serious effort to try to govern and keep the President in check—that they are prepared to fight, prepared to show courage, and that they’re going to stop cutting deals with the inside the beltway crowd.”

Levin explained that House conservatives should not squander the opportunity this new leadership election affords them.

“I’ve been pushing very hard for the replacement of this leadership, not just to save the Republican Party, but to save the Republic itself against an out-of-control President.”
