Speaker John Boehner is SO Bad That Democrats Now Rallying to Protect His Job

Republican House Speaker John Boehner has been so bad for the GOP and for the country that there has been a constant drumbeat from the more conservative House members to dump him as Speaker. But he has also been so bad for the country that now even the Democrats are rallying to him and vowing to save his job.

Conservatives have been agitating to force Boehner to hold to the ideas that the voters put the GOP in power to effect. But Boehner has constantly buckled to Obama and the far left allowing them to win battle after battle despite the fact that the voters want more conservative leadership.

The rumblings to dump Boehner, though, are growing. But liberals don’t want Boehner to be fired as Speaker. He’s their man! This has caused the liberals to rally around their Speaker.

A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.
But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt.

“I’d probably vote for Boehner [because] who the hell is going to replace him? [Ted] Yoho?” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) said Wednesday, referencing the Florida Tea Party Republican who’s fought Boehner on a host of bipartisan compromise bills.

“In terms of the institution, I would rather have John Boehner as the Speaker than some of these characters who came here thinking that they’re going to change the world,” Pascrell added.

Liberal Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) agreed that, for Democrats, replacing Boehner could lead to a worse situation.

Folks, this is very important to take notice of. This means that Boehner is the liberal’s Speaker, not ours.
