John Boehner wants to prolong sequestration. Oh, and his job performance numbers are in the toidy. Coincidence?

A Public Policy Polling poll of Ohioans has GOP House Speaker John Boehner's job performance numbers at a whopping 20 percent; 59% disapprove of the job he's doing. (John Kasich's not doing too well, either. Follow the link.)

owie

Since October 2012, The Boehner's approvals have fallen 13 points, down from 33%.

Gee, could it have anything to do with the fact that he "is, in fact, bad at his job”? How bad? Well, as we speak, TPM has a post on Boehner's call for more-- wait for it-- sequestration:

...House Speaker John Boehner reiterated that his chamber would move quickly when Congress reconvenes to pass a continuing resolution that would avoid a government shutdown but prolong sequestration.

The short-term resolution would keep the automatic budget cuts known as sequestration in place.

Good grief, can he get any more tone deaf?

Take this L.A. Times headline, for example:

Defense officials tell Congress that scheduled sequester budget cuts threaten to gut the military.

Or this Times story:

The Obama administration announced Monday that about 5,600 low-income California children would be shut out of federally funded Head Start preschool programs because of Washington budget gridlock.

How's that outreach workin' for ya, GOP?

True to form, Rachel Maddow does her usual excellent job, this time by putting the House of Representatives' last few years into perspective for us by chronicling John Boehner's bad-at-his-jobitude:

"You counted wrong... You had to shut everything down at emergency speed."

"Nancy Pelosi never lost a vote. She never once got so confused and lost such control of the group she was supposed to be leading that she did not know what they were going to do... She was good at her job. John Boehner is not good at his job."

"John Boehner is, in fact, bad at his job."

"Is his job, in fact, impossible?"

"If... Republicans in Washington are... incapable of making governing policy.. then... this is a problem for which we may need to find the serenity, and the certainty, that it will not change."

The Boehner has a limp caucus. Yes, it's true, he he has lost control of his own caucus. Should this condition last longer than four hours years, it may be time to get help. And despite his apparent reliance on prayers like this one, he clearly needs stronger medicine:

serenity prayer

In fact, Sources say Paul Ryan may replace John Boehner as Speaker of the House (h/t: Gateway Pundit):

One thing did surprise me a little: Rachel's concern about falling off the fiscal curb. I thought she'd be more of an "Oh, just let it happen" type.

Once a BushCo hypocritical smear-monger, always a BushCo hypocritical smear-monger. They always were good at playing the Blame Game.

Via Think Progress:

Even Republicans think Brown’s characterization is way off. Missouri Rep. Billy Long (R) said, “FEMA has been great. The FEMA White House liaison called me first thing this morning and said, ‘Whatever you need, you will have.’ And the FEMA’s been here working, and we’re just gonna fight back and help these people down here in any way possible…the federal government has pledged that.”

Not only did he get a show, he got a prime time show. Maybe he'll do a terrible job, fail to show up, then get a public pat on the back:

Michael Brown, the former head of FEMA much excoriated for the agency's response to Hurricane Katrina, reportedly has a deal to become a talk radio host in Denver.

He's going all fair and balanced on us:

Brown told the blog he'll resist jumping on the media bandwagon when someone in the news is painted as a villain, offering an "objective point of view." [...]

He's also teaching a class on the Patriot Act this spring at the University of Denver.[...]

The AM programming director for Clear Channel, which owns KOA, said Brown is "really very knowledgeable about what is going on and has solid opinions. Out of a list of really great candidates, he came to the top."

Good lord, imagine who was at the bottom.

George Stephanopoulos offered job as co-host Good Morning America

I'd hate to lose him on Sunday mornings. If ABC ends up with a David Gregory equivalent, then I give up:

ABC has offered George Stephanopoulos "the coveted job of co-hosting Good Morning America, and intensive negotiations are under way," the Washington Post reports. [...]

"The onetime Clinton White House aide has also asked to hang on to his current job as the host of Washington-based This Week for as long as possible, although ABC executives do not believe he can handle both programs over the long term. ABC has not yet turned to the question of who might succeed Stephanopoulos on the prestigious Sunday show."

So who should replace him on This Week?
