John Boehner is Screwed
The hapless Speaker of the House, John Boehner is about to lose his job as speaker. Why, because Mr. Boehner will have to go to Democratic House Leader, Nancy Pelosi, to make a deal to keep the US government from defaulting on its debt. Once he makes that deal the fools in his House Tea Party caucus will vote him out of his speaker-ship. There is no way that the GOP House of Clowns will pass the Senate CR when it arrives Sunday in the House. They have already proposed a stupid plan for President Obama to agree to for them to pass the debt ceiling resolution. Obama is not going to agree to it and neither will the Senate.
So as a result, Mr. Boehner is screwed. The third in line for the presidency is being blackmailed by a bunch of highly-educated fools who know nothing about governing and don't care about anything except raising money from the lowly educated fools, racists, homophobes, and Bible-toting hypocrites in their districts. Mr. Boehner can only stop a government shutdown by making a deal with Pelosi and she has no reason to compromise with him. What will he do?
