Someone tried to nominate Newt yesterday but didn’t get a second.

I wonder if Alan West would make it.

West or Cain - or Newt (he's been a douchebag on occasion, he still is extremely intelligent and a patriot)- but Cain or West would be the proverbial fly in the ointment causing dems fits

Ryan blew his chance with his yes vote

Allen West should be nominated. Poetic Justice, and West would do a good job, a born leader.

Turned the TV on in time to see Pete King declare that speaker Boehner will “absolutely” retain the speakership. Changed the channel in disgust to my local news as the newscaster stated, “it is expected that John Boehner will remain Speaker of the House”. ugh...... It sucks to be so angry first thing in the morning.

I suggest Paul Ryan as this maneuver would clear the path for a Marco Rubio presidential run. Reason being the GOP can not win the presidency without significant Hispanic voter support and he’s the guy who can deliver it. And, maybe his coat tails would be strong enough to gain the senate as well. Maybe, hopefully, wishing :)

Boehner consistently fought AGAINST Right to Work legislation. Would never let it emerge from committee. The National Right to Work Council has tons of info on this.

Boehner is a tool of the union bosses and must go! Like ten years ago, maybe?

If I were a Democrat in the House I would vote for Boehner. He has given them everything they asked for and at the same time has put the Republican Party in complete disarray. What more could they ask for?

“Reason being the GOP can not win the presidency without significant Hispanic voter support and he’s the guy who can deliver it.”

He won’t have major hispanic support after obama legalizes all of mexico and gives them all obamaphones and free medical care, food stamps and unemployment checks.

If the Republicans in the House vote to keep Boehner they are voting to be totally useless for the naxt 2 years.

Speaker or not Boehner is a lame duck.

I disagree.
Newt can take over and clean the Democrats' clock.

Neal Boortz posted this on Twitter: Neal Boortz‏@Talkmaster Yes ... I would come out of retirement to accept the position of Speaker of the House. And I'd be a damned good one too.

The Speaker is not chosen by a majority of the Republicans. The Speaker is chosen by a majority of the House. Don’t assume that no Democrats would vote for Boenher, especially if they see the alternatives. Why would they get rid of Boehner? Any attempt to get rid of him would require the vast majority of the Republican caucus.

As this would be a step forward for the House of Representatives, the Republican party, and the American people, it will never happen.

I get your point for sure. I would be interested in any ideas you may have for the GOP to regain the POTUS and Senate though. I’m out of ideas.

This is much to do about nothing, MSNBC is having a huge laugh over this continued silliness.

FNC Babe Megyn Kelly gave this what it deserved today.

She said that they vote to keep him Speaker because none of the others want it, but maybe make him wait for it with a symbolic vote or two for more symbolism, then ‘by tomorrow it will all be forgotten’, and she had the funniest 'Oh brother' look on her face too, it was perfect.

I been posting this challenge for weeks : get on the phone and talk your favorite principled symbolic vote house member to step up and challenge him. But they wont. Just more symbolism.

Looks like they wont even get to the second vote. He's re-elected, big surprise, just like the outcome of the tax battle was.

You almost wonder if the “principled” conservatives drew lots to see who would get to cast the protest vote and who would have to vote for Boehner.

RE :”You almost wonder if the “principled” conservatives drew lots to see who would get to cast the protest vote and who would have to vote for Boehner”

Yes, it is all the Kabuki dance.

Ironically I never liked Bohner and warned to get rid of him in 2009 before it was too late, when most here were defending him.

But this is idiocy.
We are stuck with him and if Pelosi takes back the House with help from this lunicy, yes, it will be a blast to be a 'principle conservative' (2009 to 2010, 1993 to 1994 were fun years to be against Dems) it will be over.
