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!!

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
