When I first saw John Boehner the Speaker of the House I thought Oh My! What a handsome man. Unfortunately I missed the part on how they pronounced his name and my son-in-law, Justin told me that was Mr. Boner. For the next few days I went around proclaiming to one and all how handsome the dashing Mr. Boner was! Yes, that is how I pronounced it. I wondered why I was getting odd looks. Upon pronouncing the name several times that way to my friend Norma she finally looked at me and said "Would you get your mind out of the gutter!"
Stunned I replied "What?" His name is pronounced Baynor (spelled Boehner) she informed me. My first reaction was "I will strangle my son-in-law!" My second reaction was "OMG, what must people be thinking of me that heard me pronounce the name wrong!"
I called a couple times and heard his patriotic music while you were waiting to give an opinion. I saw him shed some tears when speaking and that did not bother me as my Dad was an emotional kind-hearted man. I had been somewhat fooled by a pretty face I was to find out.
As my Mother said, "Pretty is as Pretty does!" Unfortunately Mr. Boehner does not do very well at all! He is all looks and no substance as the old saying goes. He is without a doubt the Speaker of Nothing and does not have a pair of brass ones! No spine or guts and he should have been tossed out of his job and someone else put in his place!
Raise the debt ceiling but no spending cuts and failing to oppose Democrat plan to tap the wealth producers!
He has failed to get rid of Obamacare despite having a Republican Majority controlling the House! How inept is that?
If he had stood with Tea Party activists to hold the line on Obamacare during the spending debates he might have saved everyone the ravaging that this Unafforable HealthCare Act is going to bring down upon us!
Next Mr Boehner decided that in spite of the fact we have a trio of scandals that that will make it harder to pass immigration reform. He feels that Americans will be less likely to trust government to police our borders. He let it be know to Politico that when people see these abuses and problems it confirms to their mind that their doubts in the government are well-founded so that makes it much harder!
He has consistently shown he has no spine although in truth he is not the only one! Representative Justin Amash
nominated Representative Raul Labrador of Idaho who himself abstained in the battle to rid us of John Boehner!
REPUBLICANS WHO DID NOT VOTE FOR BOEHNER:
Rep. Justin Amash voted for Raul Labrador
Rep. Jim Bridenstine voted for Eric Cantor
Rep. Paul Broun voted for Allen West

Time to get rid of the cowards in the Republican Party of which Boehner is one! He has not stood up to the Dem's/Liberals and or the President! Nor has he performed his Consitutional duties by any stretch of the imagination!
From the outside Mr. Boehner looks good but from the inside he is rotten! Handsome is as Handsome does, and you have not done well at all Mr. Boehner!
