John Boehner overcame a grassroots challenge from the more conservative sect of his own party to retain his Speaker position Tuesday.
He obtained 216 votes, barely enough to prevent a second vote, to hold on to the top spot.
But the Twitterverse wasn’t about to let him off that easy.
Continuing w/Boehner as Speaker after winning majority in House is like cleaning up yard full of dog poop but leaving 1 fresh turd in grass.

The majority GOP voters want Boehner gone. Unfortunately, that doesn’t matter to the majority of GOP politicians ‘representing’ them.

Someone needs to tell Boehner to go easy on the Oompa Loompa shade of spray-on tanner. My eyes are on fire.

I like my Speakers to be weepy, orange, sell-outs who support amnesty and obamacare. #Boehner
