Should Boehner Step Aside?

February 11, 2014

Just a thought, not that anyone will take it seriously, but it’s a question that used to actually have meaning.  Does the party take precedence over the individual, not to mention the almost rhetorical question asking whether the views of the leadership of the party should reflect the views of the membership?  It has always been a problem for the GOP in that the grass roots membership has always been much more conservative than the “East Coast Establishment” as reflected by Rockefeller Republicans, et al.

Now we have what can almost be characterized as a full fledged revolt and doesn’t that suggest that any principled man should step aside and support the principles of his party?  Since when is winning an election by one or two percentage points enough to lay claim to a meaningful victory?  When almost half of the electorate is voting against you or your stated policies it suggests a real failure of leadership on the part of those who are the incumbents.

Just some thoughts.
