Conservative group: Boehner will not be re-elected
dailycaller.com ^ | 01/02/2013 | daily caller

Posted on 01/03/2013 7:16:44 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather

A conservative group aiming to oust John Boehner as speaker of the House said on Wednesday that they have commitments from enough Republicans in Congress to deliver the political surprise of the year and deny the Ohio Republican another two years with the speaker’s gavel.

“I have confirmed with a group of congressmen that Speaker Boehner will not be elected speaker tomorrow,” Ron Meyer of the group American Majority Action wrote in an email Wednesday evening. “He will either resign or be forced out tomorrow.”

In a phone interview with The Daily Caller, Meyer said “more than 20” Republicans have told his group they won’t vote for Boehner during elections Thursday. American Majority Action is a conservative organization based in Virginia that is active in the tea party movement. It is run by Ned Ryun, the son of former Republican Rep. Jim Ryun of Kansas.

Tell Republicans to get rid of Boner.Just need 17 to

boner got them to vote for that marxist bill to avoid the news media's fake “fiscal cliff” bs . the media wanted a tax on the rich and that is called a progressive income tax which is marxism/socialism .socialism never works.

Send a tweet to Republicans in Congress:

This is good news if true, but I think we’re being played like it’s Election 2012 all over again, so leftists will win a “decisive” victory by helping the crying loser keep his job.

Very sporting of him to announce this before the vote so that Boehner and his cronies have plenty of time to try to “convince” them otherwise. Did he have a map of the House with red dots on it as well?

Doesn’t matter, if the GOP-e just replaces him with another RINO.

I have said this for years...

with the house always close to 50-50, it only takes 10% to control the house...

nothing passes or fails without the votes of the 10%..

that 10% is the tea party..

c’mon guys, flex your muscle, you have more power than you realize...

Will democrats let this favorite son go? They will happily try to keep this impotent Speaker right where he is, for laughs if nothing else.

More steaming BS disguised as false hope. When is the vote so I can check back later and be disappointed once again that the weeping wimp gets reelected?

This is a crock. There is nobody running aginst him. Oh sure, they’ll get more than 17 votes against him for the first ballot or second, but unless someone specific (article says nobody has a name of a candidate), then Bonehead will eventually get the votes after a few ballots.

Who knows, even some Dems might vote for him just to screw with the conservatives’ heads.

that would just be incredible. Too good to be true. But think -— it’s just the kind of audacious, cocky, in-you-face thing that the Democrats do all the time.

somehow THEY have permission to be outrageous and daring but the Republicans? The RINOS should all be issued pairs of those big wax lips we used to buy as kids from the candy counter.

and the best of it would be that West would have authority over the alcoholic adolescent who cheated and ‘won’ that seat.

Ah, it’s just too good.

Amazing that so few people know that the House can choose anyone for the speaker - not just congress people.

West for speaker??? How about Palin for President while we’re lost in dreamland?

He isn’t a Congressman anymore, guys. West lost. Loved him, contributed to his campaign but he’s GONE!

That doesn't keep him from being eligible for the position should they place his name in nomination. But it won't happen as they have never elected a speaker that wasn't an elected member of the current House.

My goodness. If you wish to engage in fantasy land, be my guest. No non-member of Congress has ever been elected Speaker. If you wish to pin your hopes and dreams on the mystical rainbow of this Congress electing defeated Allen West as Speaker, please do so with great gusto. Enjoy.

If there is a second ballot a sufficient number of Democrats could go for Boehner to keep the squish sell-out in charge

But it’s not a REALISTIC choice.

All I hope for is that Cantor the cadaver doesn’t get any higher in seniority. (My expectations are very low with the current pinheads in the GOP)

And no one who wants to completely destroy our country has ever been elected President either. Yet here we are.

The way things are going I wouldn't be surprised if the GOP-E elected Pelosi as Speaker.

You somehow inferred that I thought that they would vote for West. I was just pointing out that they could vote for him.
