Why would they get rid of him? They just put him into the position. Who would we get - another "brilliant?" politician like Cantor or Ryan. No thanks. I'd rather have the older fellow in charge, even if they ALL are idiots.

Cantor has been leading,"obstructing," behind the scenes, with his merry little band of extremists all along. It matters little who is officially called the House Speaker. With Cantor it's all about the Koch, ALEC-fueled, Tea Party agenda.

I truly agree with 2950-10K and Jcacourt even though Boehner disgusts me I certainly don't want Cantor or Ryan (or for that matter of fact do not want some idiot T Party) being put in as speaker of the house!!

Case in point: his take on AT&T's proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
