Stop. Just stop. It’s not going to happen. You have better things with which to waste your time than reading these stories.
It seems like some bloggers are taking dissatisfaction from conservatives in Congress with the “fiscal cliff” and are using every single statement made to have some meaning that it doesn’t necessarily have. Boehner’s people are denying the rumor via this report from Twitter:
That was easy. From Boehner Spox @michael_steel: “Rep. Boehner expects to be elected Speaker tomorrow.”— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) January 2, 2013
Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see Boehner step aside; especially after some of the actions take over the last few months — ranging from his kicking solid fiscal conservatives off of key committees to his complete capitulation to President Obama. But unless some unforseen scandal is about to break in the news — other than his disasterous leadership — Boehner is, unfortunately, staying put.
