Or.. a more serious possibility.. Rep Louie Gohmert??

Trey Gowdy

QUOTE
Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina (R) — about the fiscal cliff bill (quote found in NYT) -

“I have read the bill and can’t find the spending cuts — even with an electron magnifying glass.... it’s part medicinal, part placebo, and part treating the symptoms but not the underlying pathology.”

Absolutely . . . I'm unanimous on that! She'd kick his skinny, illegal-alien ass!

Why not reach across the aisle and pick Maxine Waters or Sheila Jackson Lee? Then maybe the media will like us.

Goehmert, West or Bachmann..

I actually think Bachmann might be best. She is seasoned, but not 'corrupt seasoned' like most of the other FIXTURES. She is a fighter and good at explaining things to America's simpletons, UNLIKE Boehner.

Trey Gowdy/Benghazi hearing

“This was never about a video! It was never spontaneous! This is terror and I want to know why we were lied to,” Gowdy said.

Yes, she does- and she would do a full court press on Benghazi and the "amnesiatic" SoS.

Michele would be Zero's WORST NIGHTMARE. AND she would have the attention of the liberal media because they hate her as much as they hate all conservatives. Boner and the current leadership of the House are no more conservative than mittens was. I had high hopes for Michele as Pres but it was not to be - media hated her and frankly perhaps America was not ready for a female Pres. BUT we have already suffered through a RAT Woman as Speaker - I vote for Michele.

Anyone but Cantor. Cantor is the establishment pick. They knew Boehner was on his way out and gave Cantor permission to oppose to the bill in order to get conservative support.

Trey Gowdy
Operation Fast & Furious

Congress has a constitutional responsibility to exercise oversight over the Executive Branch, and for more than a year we’ve been attempting to fulfill that with respect to the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” scandal.

Yet Justice — despite repeated requests for documents, multiple appearances before various committees and more than ample time — has failed to answer fundamental questions about this ill-conceived, ill-executed firearms operation.

Congress’ investigation has gone on for more than a year and a half, yet Justice has only complied with 12 of our 22 subpoena requests for documents. The American people deserve answers; Congress deserves the information we asked for.

I like either of those. It would certainly answer the question: Can the congress get any worse? Did the child molester Mel what’s his name get in. Maybe add him to the list.

Not only is Bachmann eminently qualified, her selection would be a thumb in the eye to the left. We are in dire need of a victory, and Bachmann's selection as Speaker would have a similar psychological effect (for both sides) to the Doolittle Raid on Japan in April '42.

Which is why it most likely will not happen :-(

JUST putting his name in nomination would drive the dems crazy! LOL!

That alone would make it worthwhile!

But seriously, he is my first and only choice.

Price, Gohmert or Bachmann.

The best thing about Bachmann is that not only would she stand up to Zero, she has a demonstrated track record of caring less than nothing about what the liberal media thinks of her.

She founded the House Tea Party Caucus and that’s good enough for me.
