Currently in recess, returning at 2:15pm CST to elect Speaker Pro Tempore, with the RINO traitor "Speaker", is expected to reelect Democrat to post. Total outrage in the chamber and in the state of TN that the minority party has STOLEN power again.
Which led to recall elections that threw a number of RINOs out of office.
In Texas, the State House of Representatives just elected a RINO -- Joe Strauss -- to the Speakership.
He had the support of every one of the 'Rats and a few RINOs -- enough to overturn what was a Republican majority.
It's embarrassing that our conservative contingents are being caught flat-footed by this tactic.
Reminds me of what happened in NC several years back as well. A RINO stooge, Michael Decker, was paid off to change parties when NC had a Republican edge in the House. That brought the House back to a tie and keep crooked Dem Jim Black as co-speaker.
About 3-4 years later Black resigned and is serving time in prison for bribery and obstruction.
I want all of you RINO lovers to commit hara-kiri.
Williams is scum and should be kicked out of the party NOW!
Sounds like the recent mess up in Canada or the affair that got Jim Black of NC sent to the clink (not that the idiot voters over in NC noticed).
This infuriates me. I really hate that this has happened to our state and to a good man like Jason Mumpower. I know Jason and it just makes me sick to see him the victim of such traitorous behavior. Democrats and RINOS are the lowest form of life in this country. They undermine everything good and decent. I say we should fight for a recall of this horrible man.
Didn’t this happen in Texas too?
I was so enraged by the state GOP this election the only one I voted for this time around was the state Rep. The national offices I voted Independent. Can you think of anything in this clowns district he was wanting that Naifeh and the DEMs may have promised for this?
The Dems in NC bribed a Rep. to jump to their side several years go thereby stealing the NC house. Both the speaker at that time and the Rep. went to prison.
The GOP is still successfully screwing up at all political levels! How can the GOP really prove to me that it actually has learned its lessons of the past when these recent, similar screw ups in both Tennessee and Texas have already occurred? I’m seriously not convinced that the GOP will ever actually come back as a “all conservative, all of the time, on all of the issues” political party from now on and for always!
Sorry, but did McCain not pull exactly this same move with his gang of 14 in the US Senate?
I think so.
The RINO DEm coalition is unstopable.
BTW I hate the term RINO, because that is the majority nature of elected republicans, and therefore the true nature of the party.
