He's just trying to hang on as Speaker and the best way to do that is to piss off the fewest number of republicans before the next session. And the best way to do that is to do nothing.
Its time to start a "Dump Boehner" super PAC to be set up with the sole purpose of getting rid of John B. It shouldn't take too many millions to convince his Ohio constituents next cycle that he has done absolutely nothing for them as Speaker, except for scramble to keep the speakership and its associated perks. Two years of constant hammering Ohio with what a loser he is will also show republicans that they are not the only ones who can raise superPAC money for negative purposes.
I know he would end up as a lobbyist , with a legal license to pass out $ on the House floor (like he did illegally as a member) and end up with a salary of several million. But at least he would be relieved of duty.
