Eleventh Hour: Speaker Boehner Moves to the Right(Will "Weepy" "Survive"?)
Breitbart ^ | 3 Jan 2013 | by Matthew Boyle

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.

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.

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.

Given that conservative philosophies are going by the wayside given how the Federal government is stacked in favor of socialists, Boehner might as well be voted out or resign so we can crash and burn standing on our principles.

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.

"Um, you do realized that Allen West was defeated in November, right?"

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?

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.

Look, he is an honorable man and a fine soldier, but he is no longer a Representative!

I would respectfully recommend dealing with reality and not with fantasy.

My Rep's office just said that someone has to run against Bonehead, for him to be *voted out*. At this time, no one is running against him.

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.

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.

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.

Eleventh Hour: Speaker Boehner Claims He Moves to the Right

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.

I have come to loathe him. The same for the pubbie party. Just got a fund-raising letter from the MI pubbie party.

Wrote them a note of non-support and put it in the postage-paid envelope.

A pox on all their houses.

Hmmm. Not sure how I'm going to take that picture...

But thanks for pointing me to IDIOCRACY. Fox has removed rights to video clips but I'm going to dig into this to see if I've been insulted or not.

I think some Democrats will vote for Boehner if it goes to a second ballot.
