Rep. Raul Labrador said House Speaker John Boehner should lose his leadership post if he pushes forward with immigration reform this year, CQ Roll Call reported.

I think it should cost him his speakership, Mr. Labrador, Idaho Republican, said in an interview with the Capitol Hill news organization.

"they’re kind of frustrated with the direction of this leadership"

There is no "leadership". Neither in the House nor the Senate.

Bonehead Boehner, Clueless Cantor, and Quisling McCarthy need to be retired to the back of the bus. They are proved sellouts and wussies. The Republicans need leadership and not be an echo chamber for Obama and the Donkeys.

Could be good news, except that the next ‘it is his turn’ guy would probably be Cantor or Ryan. Neither would be much of an improvement.

IIRC, Bachmann was the one who caused the backdown in January 2013, when there was talk of a potential revolt then.

Nothing would do the caucus better than to put this drunk out along with the two feckless goofs that he uses for hand puppets.

So we might (less than 10% chance) replace The Weeper of the House with another RINO from the same herd.

What’s the definition of “insanity”?

Doesn’t staging a ‘coup’ normally mean TODAY...we are making plans to see that you don’t finish your term?

These guys—GOPe— have their heads so far up where the sun don’t shine that idle threats don’t even phase them.

RINO Obamacrat John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner has finally told his sorry staff to come up with a CYA plan: a CYA Website on Benghazi.

We don’t give a RINO about your RINO, Boehner, we just want you to appoint a Special Prosecutor on Benghazi.

Stop trying to CYA and appoint a Benghazi Special Prosecutor!

Appoint or go home!

Loyal RINO Obamacrats Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell, Cornyn, and McCain will run to Obama’s side and rescue his highly unpopular “Obama Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico” with the even more unpopular “RINO Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.”

Always eager to fail, the RINOs have decided at their weekend RINO hug fest that rescuing the already failed Obama Amnesty Plan is just to tempting a guaranteed failure to pass up.

Boehner’s support will guarantee that no RINOs will ever again receive any Latino votes.

Personally, I’d like to see Trey Gowdy and Louie Gohmert take over the Speaker and House Majority Leader positions, with no preference for which person fills either position. ...They are Conservatives and not afraid to speak out and promote actions. ....Cantor, Ryan and Boehner are too “into” the political process of ‘reaching across the aisle’, so they don’t ever get anything positive done (like McCain).

Agreed. If he is to be replaced, it should have been yesterday. Don’t give him a chance to push this nonsense forward.
