HOW TO RECRUIT TREY GOWDY AS HOUSE SPEAKER?
Vanity

Posted on 05/08/2013 6:17:40 PM PDT by Toespi

I really have a strong feeling about Gowdy. He is smart, clever, and tough as nails. He would be a dynamic Speaker. Any ideas?

I don’t know, but I favor it. (He reminds me of Barry Pepper who played the sniper in Saving Private Ryan.)

He is wicked smart. I watched him questioning Napolitano over Fast and Furious, and he crushed her with specific policies on warrants, wire-tapping, cross-border operations.

I’d love to see a change in speaker. Gowdy, Gohmert, Chaffitz, Allen West, or even Newt would be wonderful alternatives to the weak capitulator, Boehner.

That’s what I want to know. Anyone, any idea how to get something like this started?. I really feel he would produce a conservative agenda beyond our wildest dreams.

Gowdy took office in 2011. Boehner has been in congress since 1991. Unfortunately, at this stage, seniority trumps guts.

He really knows his facts and can express them very well. He would have organization and run that place in an orderly fashion. Really impressed with him.

So far I like what I see and her but ... from his bio, “he also serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security for the Judiciary Committee.” Let’s see where he stands on the House side of Rubio’s bill before we send up the white smoke.

Unfortunately, things have changed since the 1800s. I’m not saying its impossible, (let’s see if conservatives can gain House seats in 2014) but Cantor wants to be speaker. It’s like our recent presidential primaries.

Three reasons why he won't be speaker.

When he was in the House. He had already served previously in the Senate (and before that served as Speaker of the KY House, so he wasn’t a “n00b”).

Well, the Speaker is elected by House members, and unless an overwhelming number of House Repubs went along with it, I doubt it would happen. Also I am convinced the Boner & some of the other RINO's would flip over to the DemoRATs rather then be ousted by a staunch, Tea Party conservative.

Imagine this: Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz in the White House, Trey as speaker and Rand Paul as majority leader.

The only Constitutional requirement for Speaker of the House is that he or she be voted in by the majority party. If enough Republicans voted for it, any one of us could be Speaker. That stated, this guy seems like a true conservative so the GOPe will never go for it.

Too bad he’s already married. I’d like to recruit him to be my husband!

Seriously though, I’d prefer him as Attorney General rather than Speaker but I’d be happy with him in either position. Time to weed out the limp-wristed, do-nothing RINOs.

.... but Cantor wants to be speaker.

Blech! .... he doesn't cry at the drop of a hat, but he can be a whiny baby (recently whining about the press & how they are treating the Repubs) and he's a "chip off the old Boehner", in my opinion. He's currently shoe-polishing & butt-kissing to get a shot at the Speaker's position.

keep pushing the young beards to the front and let them attack, attack, attack.

Put them in leadership and they lose their ability to politically snipe at random
