Yet another sign the Congressional GOP brand is worthless: House DEMS to "protect Boehner."

In yet another sign of the political apocalypse, democrats have provided additional confirmation that a RINO is a RINO is a RINO.

If the OTHER party wants to protect the political version of their anti-Christ, one has to ponder:  Why would uber-leftist nutburgers like Pelosi want to protect Boehner from anything?

I get that the leftist scum infesting the House are terrified of anyone who has read or is reading the Constitution and all that, but Boehner sucking so much that the dems support him is all the confirmation I need that he's got to go.

Boehner and the allegedly Republican majority have been hand in glove with Obama's most damaging edicts.

They make a lot of noise, but then procede to accomplish nothing, a model our own waste of skin in Congress slavishly follows: this is her 3rd term there, and except for fooling the ignorant, she's accomplished nothing a parrot couldn't do since she got there.

So, there ya have it, Mainstreamers.  Boehner talks a great game, does essentially nothing Pelosi wouldn't do, and we should but our keisters to keep fake Republicans like that in office.

To all of you who've pounded me over the years on supporting Republicans and who kept telling me there was nothing they could do until the GOP has both Houses... I say: thanks for nothing and it sure looks like the lot of you was wrong...

...and I was right.

Dems vow to protect Boehner from conservative coup

Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn't count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker.

And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress.

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.

“Then we would get Scalise or somebody? Geez, come on,” said Grijalva, who referenced House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). “We can be suicidal but not stupid.”

Boehner, who has grappled with dissent from the Tea Party wing since he took the Speaker's gavel in 2011, has seen opposition to his reign grow this year, even as he commands the largest GOP majority since the Hoover administration.

That’s led to talk of a new coup, something that is more difficult to pull off after the election of a Speaker on each Congress’s first day of business.
