John Boehner's purchase of an $835,000 condo in an exclusive community in Marco Island, Fla. -- a story broken by Jonathan Strong at Breitbart News -- has increased chatter that the House speaker is planning his exit strategy from Washington when the 113th Congress draws to a close later this year.

According to USA Today, Boehner and his wife bought the condo on Feb. 11, and the speaker told his GOP colleagues about it during a gathering in Sarasota over the weekend. His office quickly sought to downplay the purchase as a sign of anything. "This area of Florida has been the Boehners' family vacation spot for many years, and rather than continue to put money into vacation rentals year after year, they decided to buy a condo," explained spokesman Michael Steel. "Their home is in West Chester, Ohio, and will continue to be."

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Anyone think he will retire? There have never been so many rumors about it and he barely made it the last vote.

First of all, where did he steal the tax money?  Second of all, he could keep moving south about a hundred miles and live on the tropical paradise of Cuba.  He's proven he belongs there. :bash:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I hope he retires but the old guard won't be the new guard I fear.
