“This was an act of pure selflessness.” – Paul Ryan
IS HE KIDDING?????????
Boehner is a R.E.P.R.E.S.E.N.T.A.T.I.V.E.
The selfless part is supposed to be GOING to DC.
If the base doesn’t think you’re doing a great job representing, it is not SELFLESS to leave.
It could only be SELFISH to stay.
Paul Ryan is a jerk.
Boehner resigning makes me want to cry!
Paul Ryan had me fooled a few years ago. I thought he was one of the few good guys.
With Boehner gone and McCarthy as speaker, nothing will change. This will not be a move toward a more conservative congress. I could see Trey Gowdy or Mark Meadows in that position, but not McCarthy. He is not that smart, with all due respect, of course.
Too bad the pope didn’t come years ago.
I nominate Bad Brad to replace him. I’m getting tired of
People who you think are conservative.
Then they screw you.
Cry me a river and I will cry a river over you!!!! Big John heads down the river of tears to a far, far better place (for us-out of Congress)!
The Speaker does not have to be an elected member of congress. With that being the case, why not elect Newt?
Why did I not think of that? It would truly be wonderful to have Newt back in Congress.
And Fur is right… Ryan is a jerk, if not a puke, with all due respect.
Boehner said the job was interfering with his drinking.
Whether or not it was Boehner who figured McCarthy would be next in line of succession, IIRC, there must first be a VOTE!
Tears of joy, I assume?
I should have NEVER voted for that @$$hole. ?
I heard he was going to go be 0bama’s towel boy at Mans Country.
Okay, people here have tossed out Gowdy, Meadows, and Gingrich as possible replacements. Any other suggestions?
Kevin McCarthy has a Liberty Score of “F”/45% — putting him on an equal footing with John McCain. This looks more like a win for Congressional ‘Rats than for Republicans. Someone is out-and-out lying if they say otherwise. I do hope it does not turn out to be McCarthy.
The first name in the Boston telephone directory could hardly do a worse job!
Meanwhile, likely blinded by tears, a slow-moving John Boehner was hit squarely in the ass by door as he was leaving.
For his hefty, taxpayer-funded retirement, maybe he can find a golf course that still allows chain-smoking on the links.
A round of orange juice for everyone!

Sessions, Gohmert and Jim Jordan
No! Not the phone book.
The last time they did that, they called AAAAAAAA Bail Bonds, and the night clerk, John Boehner, answered the phone.
Little-known good guy from Texas, and head of the Republican Study Committee, oil businessman Bill Flores, would make a good one. He hasn’t been in Congress long enough (yet 😉 ) to become an Inside-the-Beltway corruptocrat. (It’s worth a little homework time researching who/what he is.)
I believe Sen. Jeff Sessions will be busy being a senator
But H. R. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) would do a fine job.
Paging William F. Buckley!
Newt for Speaker. Newt for Speaker, now!
Yes, I said it.
Me too. I really shit the bed in my support for Ryan. What a turd he turned out to be. A walking commercial for term limits.
The Republicans better start listening to their grass roots, and tell Karl Rove to fuck off…stupid piece of RINO shit….
The House needs a speaker that fits the tenor,integrity,and aspirations of our times:
Ahmed the Clock Boy.
It’ll be another Menshevik – bet on it.
So he’s not fully retiring,he’s only resigning from one of his jobs.
Boehner is resigning both Speaker and his house of representative’s jobs…he is quitting…like all Barky peeps do…
Boehner is quitting his job before he gets fired. It’s a typical alcoholic story. Nothing selfless about it.
A few random thoughts on the house losing it’s boner:
Kevin McCarthy? New boos same as the old boss?
A took out the trash this morning and it was a pleasing job that left a smile on my face.
Obama called Boner a “patriot”?!? Perhaps all that leg riding Boner did paid off and now he can play golf with President Fecal Top any time he likes, but it won’t happen because Boner just became toilet paper and has no usefulness after its initial use.
Peter King (Rino-New York) Said it was the Tea Parties Fault, and there is “no appeasing those people”..Perhaps Mr. King should re-register as a demotard since he acts like one all the time.
Boner said, “The spirit moved me”…..Ore maybe his liver is trying to tell him something.
I think we can live without an orange boy who likes to snuggle with Piglosi.
Lie’n Ryan… yeah like I believe his spin… Boner left because he preferred the optics of leaving under his own “choosing” instead of being perp walked out because he knew he did not have a chance in hell staying speaker. Ryan is not as astute as he thinks either. The tide pushing Boner out will rinse Ryan out of the swamp too because Trump has given voice to the vulargarians wanting real change
“Poor old Boehner
Tired and gone
Left me here to sing his song
Drunked up fool
With his orange skin on!
Poor old Boehner
Tired and gone.”
(apologies to Jim Morrison)
It would make more sense without autocorrect..Damn it…
chief — Yes! Gingrich would be a first-rate Speaker.
it just occurred to me that Boehner may be terribly ill and wants to leave before it’s apparent. Hmm. I do hope that is not the case. I sincerely do not believe he would simply give up his position over a conscience.
As many times as he’s been in bed with Obola, he may have caught the bug.
He constantly rolls his tongue around inside his mouth like there’s either a red-hot piece of metal or a live gerbil in there.
Psychiatric posterboy or oral cancer. Smoking/drinking/lying for a lifetime has me picking CA.
