Gohmert: Famous Republican 'to be booted by January' [Boehner]
WND ^ | February 23, 2014 | By Garth Kant

Posted on 02/24/2014 9:56:23 AM PST by Jim Robinson

WASHINGTON – One of the tea-party leaders in Congress believes the days of Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker of the House of Representatives are numbered.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told WND he predicts Boehner will no longer be speaker “by next January,” regardless of the outcome of the midterm election in November.

The Texan doesn’t think it will take a coup to remove Boehner, believing the tide is already moving in that direction, and saying, “I think people are ready for a change.”

And Gohmert would see that as a change for the better, because, he says, “We’ve got to have someone who is smart enough to realize” it was (Sen. Majority Leader) Harry Reid (D-Nev.) who shut down the government, not the GOP.

In addition to predicting the downfall of Boehner as speaker, Gohmert also told WND:

* He believes the majority of GOP voters have tea-party values

* He approves of GOP primary challenges to establishment incumbents by conservatives

* He suspects the establishment GOP is at war with the tea party because of “fear”

* He feels it is realistic to believe a tea-party candidate could win the presidency

I say Louie should be appointed as Speaker of the House. He’s a true conservative AND he ticks off libeals all the time.

He is correct, the typical GOP voter has Tea Party values.

Voters in this country have Tea Party values, or Socialist ones. The ones who hold the values of the GOPe can all fit in one ballroom where the Chamber of Commerce holds cocktail parties.

“I think people are ready for a change.”

That is so like, 5 years ago.

Good news, however, if his replacement is Cantor, we’ll get more of the same.

Gohmert feels GOP leadership is making a key mistake by listening to insiders like Rove more than tea-party voters, and he cited last autumn’s government shutdown as an example.

Louie Gohmert nails it! Replace Boehner and other GOP-e leadership.

Rove can GTH.

He sure is. Louie Gohmert is a true Christian, a genuine Conservative, ex-military, former Aggie and a native Texan (Pittsburg -- without the 'h'). Plus I hear he likes Blue Bell.

Yep, the RINO’s know their ruse is up and most of us see them for who they really are.

Gohmert, Cruz, Lee, Palin should all come out and say “Rove does not speak for me or my constitutients so the press needs to stop quoting him.”

Will Boehner be ousted before January? Only if he resigns the Speaker position. The House as a whole votes for the Speaker, I think the House as a whole would have to vote to remove him and I don’t see the Dems playing along. Will Boehner be Speaker in the next Congress? Not a chance.

The trouble is the next 2 up are not much better: Cantor and McCarthy.

Amnesty Ryan was making noise about being interested in becoming speaker a few weeks ago.

Boehner would not have been elected in January 2013 if Bachmann has not backed down during the Tea Party revolt. They had the numbers to unseat him, but Bachmann switched support.

Ironically, she later lost her chairpersonship. What a nice ‘thank you’ from the Speaker.

“Gohmert as Speaker and Gowdy as whip?

How about the reverse?

“What about Trey Gouty (sp?).”

We can’t have another Speaker weak on amnesty. Gowdy has some good traits, but if he wants to play footsie with Pelousy on “immigration reform”, we don’t need the guy anywhere near a leadership position.

Very likely. But if the GOP doesn't get its act together soon and stop throwing the Tea Party under the bus, then we better not be surprised if Boehner hands the gavel back to Pelosi come January.

Either way would make me very happy.

My rep is Cantor, and with one exception, during my college years, I have not been given to political activism.

However, this year I will move heaven & earth to get rid of Cantor.

Obama has found how to cause extreme fear in Speaker Boehner.

Boehner lives in fear of Obama, PERIOD.

The last thing that America needs is a coward such as Boehner as Speaker of the House, PERIOD

Boenher needs to resign by April 15, 2014 for the good of America, PERIOD.

Obama needs to be Impeached during 2014, PERIOD.

I say Louie should be appointed as Speaker of the House.

I’d love to see him as Speaker of the House. BTW, they are “elected” by House members; not “appointed”.
