The TEA Party conservatives GAVE Boner the gavel and as they say, you don’t crap where you eat.
What does it take?
I sure would like tro see someone with conservative principles and courage in place of the whiner.
Hey let’s not forget Eric Cantor - he’s right in the middle of the effort to purge tea party congressmen from committee posts.
I emailed my Representative to withhold his vote. Hopefully there is still some sanity left in the House. Bottom line is obama understands only power, and there are certain issues on which our Representatives should NEVER compromise. Taxes is one of them.
Get rid of the Weeper of the House. Replace him with Newt Gingrich (the SOTH does not have to be a current member of Congress).
Sorry folks but I read the list of names of people who sit on the committee that did this purge and Paul Ryan is one of those people.
I am beginning to wonder if true conservatives have anyone at all on our side in Washington.
“The TEA Party conservatives GAVE Boner the gavel and as they say, you dont crap where you eat.”
Which brings to mind our one remaining Jackass/Donkey, the symbol of, the mascot of the Democrat Party.
Old Harry craps, and pee’s in his food, and of course won’t eat until I clean it all up, remove it, and give him fresh food.
Ain’t that a typical Democrat!?
If nothing else, all he has to do is look at the record of what the Tea Party wanted as opposed to what the establishment GOP actually did....
Having followed the voice of TRUE Conservatives would certainly have put the establishment Republicans in a better spot than they find themselves NOW.
The record of what the GOP did INSTEAD is pretty obviously a failure!
I have been thinking (which is hard for me),having read many times that Obama is not our greatest threat. Our greatest threat is the electorate who placed him where he is.
On that line let us ponder for a moment how Noehner got his job.The Republican Representatives put him there.Are they not as guilty as he is? Are we not represented in the House by Republicans every bit as bad as Boehner?
Nobody detests Nancy Pelosi any more than I, but she is a strong leader and isn’t afraid to make her Socialist views known.
We need a strong leader, A Speaker who speaks, and isn’t cowed by the WH. A Conservative not afraid to take on the President or the Media.We don’t have that in Boehner, but is there anyone in the Republican House that will be strong for Conservatives, and will the rest of the Republicans back him/her?
I like Gingrich for his outspokeness,I know of no other Republican with his expertise as Speaker, even if he does have a zipper problem.
That's right. I phoned my representative Kevin Brady to complain about his support for Boehner. I said I pulled the R-all lever in 2012, but will not be doing that in 2014. I will vote Libertarian, or not vote for anyone if he is the only candidate running against a Democrat. I have had it with Republican RINO protectionism.
I can’t name one more now that DeMint quit.
Very true, but Boner appears to have lost sight of that fact. I despair that the 2010 TEA Party class has already been corrupted/co-opted during their less than 2-years in the DC cesspool.
Exactly. The entire failed GOP leadership must go.
Including Cantor, McCarthy and McConnell.
I agree with you, but Gingerich is no longer a memeber of the House, unfortunately.
Takes just 16 Republicans refusing to support Boehner and he can’t win the Speaker’s chair... the two conservatives he booted off their committees make it just 14 needed lol
He he must be replaced. I am tired of being embarrassed by this crying, smoking, drinker. He has no spine to stand and do what must be done! He is not capable in the speaker position!
“Hey lets not forget Eric Cantor - hes right in the middle of the effort to purge tea party congressmen from committee posts”
Thats a big 10-4. Cantor and McCarthy are just Boehner mini-me’s. If the conservatives purge Tammy Faye they need to make sure to replace him with somebody at least semi conservative like Jeb Hensarling or Paul Ryan. Actually Paul Ryan would be a good negotiator. He stays calm and he can stick to a position. Whoever they pick will have to get 218 votes. Almost anybody is better than Boehner.
I am told you do noy have to be a member of the House to be elected Speaker.
The Constitution provides that the House of Representatives shall "chuse" its Speaker, it does not say that the Speaker must be chosen from among them. The House of Representatives is therefore perfectly free to chuse anyone at all as Speaker.
LOL at the thought of the genuine but delayed JUSTICE that would be.
Remember the supposedly "intercepted" conference call between Boehner, Gingrich and a couple more people to discuss what Gingrich should do about the phonied up ethics problem that was being hyped?
An activist 'Rat couple had just bought an electronic doodad that "accidentally" picked up and recorded the call in their car and they gave it to that psycho scumbag Jim McDermott who made it public.
The guy whose car phone was recorded was Boehner's as he was coincidentally driving near the 'Rat activists...
