What a pathetic show of leadership from House Speaker John Boehner these past several days. Taken to task by T-Party Freshmen who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground, Boehner has lost effectiveness as party leader as there is disunity in the Republican party.
What a shame. At a time when America needs to rally behind its political leaders, the Republican party has let us down again. And come first paycheck in January, that will hit 160 million of us Americans in the pocket book as our pay will be lighter, thanks to their childish politics. Their task was simple: keep the existing payroll tax cut in place. They simply could not get it done.
The past several months has shown us the true colors of the GOP as we’ve seen the sorry group of wannabes vie for their party’s presidential nod and now we’ve had to stand by and watch as the party implodes on itself from INSIDE the beltway. The dysfunction in this group is sickening and its members should be ashamed. Use your gavel Senator Boehner, and ask for order in the House.
