Uh-oh! Boehner has lost Hannity!


I guess THIS is an indication that even the fine folks at Fox News Channel have begun to recognize that the drubbing the Republicans are getting in the polls is for real:

On his radio show on Friday, Fox News host Sean Hannity said House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), along with the rest of the leadership in the House, had to be replaced.

“I do think leadership in the House needs to change,” Hannity said. “I don’t think John Boehner is equipped for the job. I don’t think he has the stomach to negotiate. I don’t think he has the ability to communicate the positive, solution-oriented vision for the country.”

“How hard is it?” Hannity asked. “Why aren’t these guys out there explaining what their vision is?”

…Hannity also ripped Republican leaders in Washington for “alienating” the Tea Party. Hannity named Senators like John McCain (R-AZ) and Bob Corker (R-TN) for being the top offenders and said their “unwillingness to stand strong” and constant bashing of the Tea Party is “irritating every conservative I know.”

    Count your blessings that a fanatical, self-appointed loud mouth is no longer on your side, republican leaders. The u.s. needs more like you and far fewer like hannity . Those like him would serve well in hospitals and clinics where reverse peristalsis is needed to help cleanse the patients’ stomachs of putrid substances such as their 24/7 vomitous dialogues.

      Well, at least now we know that comments like yours aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. In fact they are what my great-grandma called “overblown claptrap”. You need ‘to get a life’ if you’re listening to Hannity “24/7”. No one knows exactly what anyone else is saying “24/7”.

    • PointOfView

      Well, touché FlipSide, those of us who like Hannity don’t even listen to him 24/7. I’m glad at least thelonious is “lonius” enough to get out his dictionary while listening to Hannity all day and all night long, every day, 365 days a year! Hot Dam!

    On CNN the other day there was a panel discussion about the inability in the House & Boehner to reopen government.
    When it was suggested Boehner’s plan to close government was harming Republicans and he needed to change the tactic, the Republican point of view person said that would mean loss of Boehner’s position.
    It was said maybe doing what was best for the country was more important, but that was cast aside in favor of Boehner remaining

    Hannity just figured this out. Try to stay up with the rest of us Sean.

    A gentle reply if I may. You either do not speak/read English or you twist my words to make them fit your own remarks. Fanatics like hannity go on and on and on – 24/7 as it were – and all it is worth is to make people vomit (reverse peristalsis). I neither read nor listen to his or others remarks cause what I eat, I like to keep down. I bumped into this article early this morning and it’s the closest I wish to come to him. Gentlemen, thank you!

  5. Are the citizens of the USA aware that the House Republicans changed the rules so that a majority vote for a clean bill still couldn’t raise the debt limit or end the shutdown? Apparently Boehner and the real House Speaker, Eric Cantor, changed the rules so only Cantor can allow a vote to occur and its outcome to be enforced. Isn’t this rule change subverting democracy?

    My gut feeling tells me the R’s are going to allow a default to occur. I’ve read that Obama can raise the debt limit by Executive Order but if he does, the R’s in the house would probably initiate impeachment proceedings. What a mess.
