Posted on 01/03/2013 7:33:45 AM PST by US Navy Vet
The Speaker of the House will be elected today and some conservatives believe they have the votes necessary to oust John Boehner. In an appearance on CNBC, American Majority Action spokesman Ron Meyer said there are more than 20 House Republicans willing to vote for someone other than Boehner on Thursday when the 113th Congress convenes to elect a Speaker. Another source from a different organization has similarly confirmed that more than 20 have planned to oppose Boehner.

“Will “Weepy Boner” “Survive”?”
Sincerely hope not.
Of course Boehner will survive. We’re a one man losing streak as Fred Blassie would say. We’re outnumbered by the Obama 47 - mexicants, asians, dope fiends and welfare queens.
Boner is a total joke. 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. boner helping democrats take away our rights and freedom
Send a tweet to Republicans in Congress:
Get him the hell out . . . NOW!
As long as the GOP(rogressives) hold the strings, they will continue to put their own kind in leadership positions. Tearing down this pathetic organization will take time, but with the Dems helping us, hopefully within our lifetime.
By the time he and his henchmen are through threatening and/or promising reps about committee placements and pork for the folks back home, it is likely that Boehner will survive. There are no principles left to speak of in D.C. It’s all about money and power.
Meaning that they admit he was far from right initially...
Sadly He Probably will...the Republican “Leadership” in Washington is scared of their own shadow. The GOPe are determined to help make the Republican party obsolete......
He will survive and the Conservatives who vote against him, if they do, will be relegated to potty chairs for the duration for training.
And a lot of us knew that at the time he became Speaker.
NO MORE NEGOTIATING! HOLD THE DAMNED LINE REPUBLICANS!
Yep. In space, no one can hear you scream.
Yes, boner and all the other leftists will survive and flourish. The only hope left now is that the destruction of America is expedited and rebuilding can begin in our lifetime.
Twenty!! Wow - that sounds like a series threat to the current leadership - this is hugh!
Saw no mention of firing Bonehead on that twitter feed page :(
Of COURSE he will survive. Too many gutless wonders in the GOP.
I meant for us to tweet Republicans in Congress to get rid of boner . I am tweeting them. I just put a link to their twitter accounts
There are certainly 20+ rats that will vote for the lush.
He’s actually better for rats than pelosi, destroys the GOP even more (if that’s possible) while furthering the progressive agenda.
Do you need to be a member of the House to be speaker?
Do you need to be a lawyer to be on the Supreme Court?
I know there are some rules like this...
Right...I get it. I’m just disappointed that there’s no mention of it (firing Bonehead) - when I clicked on link. Wish there was an overwhelming stream of FIRE BONEHEAD tweets.
Yes of course, his "defeat" was gleefully covered extensively in the drive-by media.
You do realize that the House Speaker does not have to be a sitting congressman or even an elected member of that body, right?
Will “Weepy Boner” “Survive”?
I prefer to call him: Bawling Ball-less Bone-less Bone-head!
Did your beeber go off too?
ALL PELOSI HAS TO DO IS RELEASE 20 DEMOCRAPS TO VOTE FOR HIM!!!!!
Uhh...West couldn’t win his own district. Maybe he should try for dog catcher.
1 Will 20 republicans oppose him?
2 Will he then step down rather than let the democrats put him in office?
Who knows, it’s a mess but the guy is a pr disaster. A total bore who has no sense of talking to the nation.
I would respectfully recommend dealing with reality and not with fantasy.
If our Reps abstained from voting for Bonehead, according to this staffer, then Pelousy would become Speaker. So, because we have no one brave enough to step up and put their hat into the nomination it looks like Bonehead lives on as Weeper.
until you realize nobody of quality will run against him.
we only have a few kook paul types.
Number 7 Jadeveon Clowney for Speaker of the House!
Hey, I don’t even know his politics but we need more than Wimpy right now.
I fully expect just enough Dems to vote for him to keep their useful idiot in power.
"South Carolina, what's up?"
We also need someone with substance and not bluster.
Gov. Chris Christi was a first class SUCKER. Obama played him like a marionette. Now Chrisi just pisses and moans over HIS OWN failure. IOW he chose badly.
At this level we need a person who can walk the walk not just talk the talk. (BTW telling Reid to go copulate with himself was a nice start regardless)
He’s a conservative for 2 days a year when there is a vote on him coming.
I hope nobody is fooled by this.
“Maybe he should try for dogcatcher”.
West would be an excellent choice and would be great for our country. His brass ones are big enough to call out the socialists & at the least try to stem the tide against our us.
Boner has to go.
What a dumb thing to say.
Yes, I have read Article 1, Section 2.
You do realize that your Freeper campaign to whip up support for the defeated Allen West borders on "The Crazy" - right? Not only has no non-member of Congress ever been elected Speaker, but if you think a member who was defeated 2 months ago is going to be elected to the position, bless your heart.
There, fixed it. If Boehner really moved to the right, he would be telling Obama right now that there will be no increase in the debt ceiling for 2013.
Wrote them a note of non-support and put it in the postage-paid envelope.
A pox on all their houses.
I think some Democrats will vote for Boehner if it goes to a second ballot.
