Congressmen Confirm That Boehner Will Either Resign Speakership Or Be Forced Out
Cybercast News Service.com ^ | 1/2/13 | Ron Meyer

Posted on 01/02/2013 5:08:45 PM PST by drewh

I have confirmed with a group of Congressmen that House Speaker John Boehner will not be reelected Speaker tomorrow.

He will either resign or be forced out tomorrow.

Only 17 members are needed to block Speaker Boehner's election tomorrow. A Speaker needs an absolute majority of all votes cast for a specific person.

If no one has a majority, the House is speakerless. I've confirmed these rules with the House Parliamentarian.

You jest. Or are too soft to play hardball. Newt ate Republicans AND Democrats for breakfast. That’s why the Establishment despises him.

Good, but I worry that McCarthy is going to find a way to get his hat in the ring, and that would be a disaster for Conservatives in the House.

If you could somehow work in a bottle of booze, that picture would be perfect.

On what planet? Gingrich lost to Clinton every single time. Gingrich is the establishment. Except his juveniles temper tantrums embarrass them. How many conservatives take their order from Nancy Pelosi?

YES, indeedy. Trey is fabulous, articulate and keen minded. I do like him too. But, we will shatter, fragment and balcanize ourselves, as we did in the primaries, letting Cantor squeak through.

Does this mean we will have to see him cry on TV again?

In German we called folks like this “Waschlappen.” (A washcloth - soggy, wet and just flops somewhere without a spine)

Can you explain to me something? Why do Gingrich fans call him by his first name/boyhood name? Adult males are called by the last name. Gingrich is still called by his first name like he’s in pampers or something. He’s almost 70, isn’t it time for him to man up and start acting like an adult?

The "adult rule" does not apply to celebrities.

Elvis is Elvis. Rush is Rush. Ichiro is Ichiro. Newt is Newt.

“Is there anything that stops Pelosi from instructing House Dems to vote for Boehner and keep him where he is??”

Nope. And it would be a brilliant strategic move; saddle the gop with a useless and disliked leader who owes his speakership more to the opposition than to his own party.
