He claims Obama needs to built trust.

Team Obama says

Quote:
But the White House said such an accusation was simply a cover for Boehner's inability to corral his members behind a push for immigration reform that Republican leaders see as vital to repairing ties with increasingly important Hispanic voters.

Gotta go with Team Obama on this one, Boehner wants to do it but he cant herd enough cats in the right direction to get R done. He is after all a very weak leader.

What say you?

@hawkeye10,
If the house went to a vote on the question he would be able to get a coalition democrats and republicans to pass it. No balls like most of legislative government.

If he violated the Hasterd Rule on this he would be deposed. Boehner likes being Speaker too much to do that.

@hawkeye10,
It beats me why he would like being such a useless speaker with no visible power behind the position in his case. Does he just like sitting behind the President on the State of the Union address?
