People are leaving the GOP in droves. The RINOs who run it are tone-deaf to we, the people:

Poll: 62% of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong

Poll: Majority oppose more foreign workers under immigration reform

Worst Speaker Ever: Republicans ignore Boehner and refuse to pass clean debt limit hike

Poll: Majority want Benghazi Select Committee

Thankyou, SC. If you are against amnesty, Trey Gowdy is not the man you want for Speaker.

Trey Gowdy is another Amnesty Liberal

Sad but true. People better remember how Lindsey Graham became Senator.

From the article: Mr. Boehner said Tuesday that he is not sure whether he will pursue immigration bills this year, days after House leaders outlined their principles at an annual GOP retreat that included border security and legalization for most illegal immigrants. The plan also included a specific new pathway for younger illegal immigrants

Ryan, Cantor, Boehner...all of the so-called "leadership" is as deceitful as can be. Ryan, for example, will forever be known as the guy who stabbed veterans in the back. Boehner is the guy who caves time after time. Cantor is the pro-amnesty guy from the east coast who doesn't have a clue.

The article suggests Boehner should lose his speakership if he pushes amnesty "this year."

How subtle these politicians are: they are saying they want it pushed next year AFTER the mid-term elections, and preferably in a lame duck session.

Boehner should be replaced immediately with only a consistent, anti-amnesty replacement. Don't give them the chance to open this to a House floor vote, ignoring the Hastert principle, during the lame duck session. The Speaker has the authority to ignore the principle of republican consensus before a floor vote. And even then, there are so many weasel republicans that an anti-amnesty speaker would have to keep in line.

We’ve seen this kind of a show before at the beginning of the session with noise from Bachmann and so on.

In the end only ten House heroes stood up to oppose Boehner’s leadership.

Republicans like Amash, Massie and Stockman had the cohones to oppose Boehner. Only if someone like them were elected Speaker would we have real change.

"Amnesty is wrong in any circumstance, and if we are going to fix our broken immigration system--and we should--it makes much more sense to do so next year, so that we are negotiating a responsible solution with a Republican Senate majority rather than with Chuck Schumer.

Anyone pushing an amnesty bill right now should go ahead and put a 'Harry Reid for Majority Leader' bumper sticker on their car, because that will be the likely effect if Republicans refuse to listen to the American people and foolishly change the subject from Obamacare to amnesty.”

Dumping Boehner will give him time to figure out how to officially change his party registration to Democrat.

“Gowdy just went with Paul Ryan to talk to Sen Chuck Schumer to work on passing Illegal Alien Amnesty

Trey Gowdy is another Amnesty Liberal...no more Amnesty Liberals”


I to have my doubts about Gowdy and believe he is a “climber” and will do anything to get in front of a camera. We need someone with YEARS of integrity if we can find someone in the cesspool of DC. Maybe it is Gohmert

BUT, we have heard this before that the House pubbies were going to dump Boehner and coup was going to happen. All that happened it provided more ammo for the Odinga crowd, nothing more.

Either the pubbies need to let their balls drop and do it or STFU.....

I agree.

And anyone who pushes citizenship for illegal aliens over people who legitimately came here through all the proper channels, waited in line, and did things the right way, to become an American, needs to be thrown out of office.

Apparently SC Republican primary voters are just as uninformed about Gowdy as they are Loveable Lindsey.

The 2013 RINO Cave In by Boehner and McConnell during and after the Reid-Obama partial shutdown of the Federal Government last Fall sealed the final approval of Commie Obamacare.

Thus, Obamacare became the Litmus Test for the RINO Wing of the Republican Party.

The “Hold your nose when you vote and hope for the best” old argument that states:
“It is better to have a RINO Republican in Congress who will always cave in to the Democrats than it is to have a Democrat in Congress” is now subject to scrutiny by the impact of first FIVE YEARS of evidence from our Obamacrat Democrats and Cave In Obamacrat RINO Republicans.

What say all of you?

I want Boehner purged real bad. There is only one spoeakere !! and that is Trey Gowdy!!

Do you know that Gowdy is "hot" for Immigration reform. All Conservatives should hold Gowdy in contempt for that one position.

It cannot be emphasized enough -- the passage of ANY immigration bill will truly and utterly end our Republic as Founded. It's checkmate.

I don’t agree with Labrador. I think Boehner should go back to Ohio tonight and NEVER come back. Think of the damage to the United States that a strong leader like Trey Gowdy could have stopped!

Minimally, I guarantee you a Select Committee on Benghazi and another one on the IRS and another one on Fast & Furious would be operating and nearing action.

Boehner is a disgrace and cannot see opportunity to shine if it jumped up and slapped him in the face.

He wants good Dreamers to be approved and bad Dreamers to be deported.

Steve King has the border hawks, Big Ag, Big Ethanol and Big Wind on his side.

Steve King actually has a moderate argument for being speaker.

.....this drunk.....

Yes Boehner is a heavy, heavy drinker. The man parties hard.

But you should also know that magnificently-groomed, he is easily Congress' best-dressed fellow. He is debonair and smooth with the ladies, will drive hundreds of miles to go to a party, is unfailingly polite, a very good ball room dancer, and socially adept. He never met a pretty blonde he didn't like. As far as the drinking goes, he hardly ever falls down, and although his speech is known to thicken somewhat, he hardly ever slobbers.

When he is finally primaried out of his very safe seat seat (unlikely since he is in a gerrymandered district exclusively populated by wealthy blue-haired matrons and widows who think the world of their Johnny and love it when he cries) he will be a dyn-o-mite lobbyist.

His wife puts up with him and so should you. Don't sell Johnny Boner short. It's his job to sell you short.
