    John Boehner will resign from his position at the end of october.

    What do you think is really behind this?

      Tea Party.

      Party politics of course.

      My impression is that he was in for a battle he could not ensure he would win, (a no-confidence vote from his fellow Republicans), plus he saw the fortunes of the party diminishing among non-extremist  Republicans, eroding to a point of a choice on which forkinf the road to take.

      I think his departure is a good thing.

    I have asked for John Boehner's resignation along with many others.   
    This is good news.
