    We're still waiting for a legitimate Democratic challenger to John Boner after the wimp Andrew Hounshell dropped out.

      Been watching politics for years now, and I am SO sick and tired of Democratic wimps.

        Seriously, it's one thing for a Democratic candidate to bow out of a House race in say Massachusetts but it's another for a Democratic candidate in Ohio's 8th Congressional District to bow out, especially considering the Democrats in in the DNC and DCCC re not targeting John Boehner for re-election (given the conservative nature of his district).

        I also believe the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate believe John Boehner is really not one who should be targeted but those that are pressuring him to not compromise.  Boehner's never been a Tea Party guy but is put into a difficult position with pressures from party establishment and Tea Party folks at the same time.  I sure wouldn't want to be in his shoes right now.
