    The guy looks like a slick stereotypical politician but that was a hell of a speech. Saw it live.

    You do realize it's pronounced, "Bayner" right? I know your liberal idealogy is clouding your vision and you may still be hung over from last night but try and keep up, ok?

    I'm a liberal because I think the guy's name is funny?

    Um Boehner is a German name. North German (Böhner): occupational name from an agent derivative of Middle Low German bönen ‘to board’, ‘to lay a floor’. It most certainly is not pronounced Bayner.... Well not originally anyway. Maybe he got too many Boner jokes in High school. :whistling:

    I'm not a republican but I thought it was an excellent speech. He's right.

    You shouldn't make jokes like that. People take everything a hamster says literally.

    They wouldn't even grant a request of Roll Call. Suprised?

    I say most of the speech last night, my room mate had it on his TV. He actually spoke the truth... I just about fainted!

    Initial observations:

    1) Poor tie knot
    2) Sincere body language
    3) Did not really "fly off the handle" as much as he could have
    4) Excellent delivery

    I haven't been much of a fan of Boehner in the past few months. However, I found that speech to be riveting and incredibly well delivered.

    I want to see some real old-time-preacher, 1880's Southern-revival fire-and-brimstone screaming. I want to see book-throwing, foot-stomping, pointing, veins popping out on foreheads, spittle on the podium... I mean, if you're going to lose it, really, really, really lose it.

    I've given more unsettling best man speeches than that.

    I was hoping he would really go ballistic. I wouldn't have even minded if he'd dropped a couple of heavier curse words in the mix either.

    That speech, in my not-so-humble opinion, is the best speech (and most reflects MY opinion) from the House, that I have ever seen.

    I think the biggest question is...

    Why is he not running for President?

    ...probably because ha knows better.
