    Just as they should. He is a coward and a liar.

    Boehner is a wimp. Who are they going to get to replace him?

    Boehner seems to have a lot of money to pass out from the US Chamber of Commerce, who want cheap, cheap labor. The GOP get to Washington and get cushy offices and assignments and then start bedding down with Democrats. People in Indiana are sick of the recent budget deal and even Sen. Coats is getting great criticism, not to mention Congressman Todd Rokita, who always seemed to be so conservative. And Marlin Stutzman has been silenced for his role in the budget for some reason.

    As you know, those who stand against Boehner will be backbenchers for many years unless they succeed.

    I would say Ted Cruz but I think they will go the RINO approach. What about you.....have a suggestion?

    Cruz is a US Senator, he can't be Speaker of the House.

    I have no suggestions.

    Paul Ryan, perhaps? Only for lack of any other ideas.

    A bulldog, like Harry Reid, is needed.

    US Senator Sessions for President!

    I don't think that anyone in the house has enough backbone to stand up against Boehner and then be consigned to the back benches forever. Obamacare does not seem to cover backbone transplants.
