Today wasn't the end of the world. Today marked the end of the GOP.  John Boehner's Plan B stunt was the final nail in the coffin if not the entire GOP-controlled House of Representatives but at least his speakership. We couldn't imagine a time when the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives would make a decision that would be such an utter failure...not with the minority party but with his own party.  The equivalent is when players refuse to play for a coach.  Resigning or declining to run for re-election is the only option for Boehner. Turn the House over to Eric Cantor whose behind Boehner's every failure.

Nothing won't get done under Cantor.  But the show will be worth the watch.  And when the midterms arrive, both Boehner and Cantor can be retired.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  GOP Death Premature (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    As much as the death of the GOP would be a blessing, it is premature. Even with the recent loss and embarrassment, they will regroup to continue their havoc. They are unrelenting and the money will not stop motivating their wacky ideas of providing for the rich at the cost of everybody else.

    Karl Rove and others continue with their moneyed influence in state houses. They even intend to change the way electoral votes are counted. With their successful redistricting in 2010, it will be a hard road for Democrats to regain the House. Imagine if this was the way America choose Presidents?

    Only an external event, such as another financial collapse, will have any hope of shocking the insanity of the Republicans back into historically normal ranges.

    Perhaps they will choose a new Speaker, but it is unlikely that person will be easier to deal with than the insanity of Boehner. Nonetheless, they will still be a force.

    PBO is doing a competent job, but he needs to be more liberal.

  •  The GOP is alive and well in NC (0+ / 0-)

    Yesterday, the governor-elect announced that Art Pope will be his Deputy Budget Director.   Art Pope is a big player in the NC GOP.  He runs a chain of discount stores located primarily in minorty neighborhoods that sell cheap Chineese products.  Then he funnels the profits to GOP causes.  Also, a state legisltature Mitch Gillespie was named Assistant Director to the Dept of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).  His office window faces the building that houses DENR and he has drawn a target on the window that lines up with the building.  Last year him along some other GOP state legislatures tried to close two DENR regional offices and cut several jobs at DENR.   The last state budget and this year's state budget have included money for justification reviews of regional offices.
