  •  What happened to the Discharge Petition? (7+ / 0-)

    Couldn't Nancy Pelosi just have a number of Discharge Petitions in hand to end run Boehner every time he refuses to bring up a vote that she knows will pass without a Republican majority?

    As Rachel Maddow says "John Boehner is not good at his job."

      Bet he thinks he coulda-shoulda-woulda been speaker if he just waited a little longer and then made some GOPers a deal.

      He just tried too soon.

      Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      for the farm bill last summer, but couldn't get enough Republican signatures. It was an issue in the congressional race in my district between Steve King and Christie Vilsack. King was the only Iowa congressman who would not sign the discharge petition, as Christie Vilsack reminded people at every opportunity.
