Boehner says Pope Benedict XVI displayed ‘extraordinary humility’ by announcing resignation. It is alleged Boehner was then seen crying and mumbling something about he knows how the Pope feels because everyone that isn’t a RINO wants him to resign, too.

It’s time for Boehner to display some extraordinary humility and follow the Pope’s lead, maybe just maybe we get a republican house leader who is less likely to cry and more likely to fight for what is right.

Boenher is a sackless professional slimeball who is so inept he isn’t even able to make it look like he’s trying to stand up against “Deal Leader’s” virtual take over. Yet another poster child for term limits.

Boehner, no one cares about your opinion on the Popes announcement. Try doing your job and stop analyzing what the Pope does. I don’t know what the Popes poll numbers are like, but considering he had to follow John Paul II, he’s still in better shape than you, and you had to follow Nancy Pelosi. A monkey could have followed Nancy and would have better poll numbers than you do.

As for the pope – HE’s getting the best part of this deal. He gets to drop all of the duties and responsibilities, but gets to keep his position as esteemed leader. There is NO WAY that the new pope will not “consult” the old pope on anything the old pope wants to get involved with. Like being the Queen Mother or Bill Clinton. All the glory, none of the work.

My friends have been talking about this since the 80′s.

Last night on the news {couldn’t hear I was at the bar} they showed a black man named Peter in line to be Pope.

There is rumor that an African will be the next Pope. Given that a huge majority of Catholics are NOT white anglosaxons that would only follow.

Came across a piece somewhere that speculated that the pope is stepping downtown to block the African cardinal because he is a hardcore Msrxist. Benedict is conservative (by European standards) and he has great influence over the college of cardinals, therefore, he has influence over who his successor would be. Obviously if he died in office he wouldn’t have any influence.

Sidekick:”Came across a piece somewhere that speculated that the pope is stepping down to block the African”

I was thinking about that possibility last night. The logical successor to Benedict in my opinion is Tarcisio Cardinal Bertone, the Secretary of State, an Italian born in Turin. Problem is he was born in December 1934 and so would not be eligible to be Pope if Benedict lived through December 2014, which I think Benedict easily will. 80-year-old Cardinals and up cannot participate in the Conclave. Bertone is a great friend of Benedict and was a great friend of John Paul. But would the Cardinals shy away from him because he is 78, like Benedict was when he was elected? Even though John Paul changed the papal balloting for election from two-thirds plus one to 50% plus one, I think this Conclave might go on for quite a while. I think that’s why Benedict wanted it to take place during Lent. I see a struggle between a significant bloc of Cardinals for a continuance of the past two papacies with Bertone and a significant progressive bloc wanting the African, Cardinal Peter Turkson of Africa. It’s also not a coincidence that Benedict’s resignation will kick in at 8 PM on Ferbruary 28. He’s pointing to 8:28.

If boner resigns, there’s a great reality show in the offing. John and Benedict Take Miami….two retirees tapping lots of octogenarian ass, crashing parties at all the best clubs, and chillin with your favorite old school rappers….etc. Would be a hit with the smoke weed and watch “reality tv” all day crowd. Im just sayin.

Seeing that the pope did show such humility, it’s time that members of congress do the same. The pope served eight years, if its good enough for him, it’s good enough for members of congress.

That and all you POS need to give up your cushy pensions and stop SCREWING over our military personnel. The one man who can never step out of the shadows for fear of endangering his family has been told to go in the words of Pink Floyd Lost for Words. If you wonder what the lyric says, got to about 3:02 minutes in the song

He has done an excellent job as Barry’s White House Boy. Time for him to show humility also.
