Skip to comments.Cuccinelli Urges Virginians To Support Motion To Oust Boehner
Posted on 08/03/2015 4:20:37 AM PDT by cotton1706
Principled limited government constitutional conservative Ken Cuccinelli, Chairman of Liberty Now PAC, issued a powerful appeal for Virginians to demand their Representatives in Congress support Rep. Mark Meadows' motion to vacate the Chair and oust John Boehner as Speaker of the House.
An amazing thing happened the other day, although it hasnt gotten much attention yet!
On Tuesday, North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows courageously submitted a Motion to Vacate the Chair. The Chair in this case is Speaker Boehner. If successful, Congressman Meadows motion would remove Congressman Boehner as Speaker of the House, and allow for a vote on a new Speaker.
Maybe America can actually get a principled leader at the helm of the House?! What a change that would be! And what a step forward for America!
What Exactly Is It?
The Motion to Vacate the Chair is a privileged motion. This means that if Cong. Meadows forces it forward it cannot be blocked by the Speaker or his leadership team using procedural tactics or the Rules Committee. They will have to have a vote of the entire House of Representatives.
Some will note that the Motion has already been sent to the Rules Committee, and thats true. However, Cong. Meadows can move to discharge the Motion from the Committee or, if the Committee votes it down quickly, he can simply submit another Motion to Vacate the Chair and call for a vote that must happen within two legislative days (two days during which the House is in session).

I hope and pray he is removed. Now, what similar methods do we have for Mitch McConnell in the Senate?
I remember when he was voted into that chair and everyone was all excited about it. I think the excitement was over the fact that San Fran Psycho Nan was ousted. My distaste for the man grew almost as soon as he opened his mouth.
I agree with the sentiment but sure wish it was a different messenger. Cuccinelli is a loser and garners little respect.
There's no reason to let off HOR members who support Boehner ever again. They should know they'll be primaried in favor of someone who isn't a traitor to their voters.
Cuccinelli was abandoned by the RNC and came within a razor edge of still winning. Calling him a loser is a cheap shot, try to stay informed.
If conservatives everywhere besieged their elected officials with emails, phone calls, personal visits and downhill appearances to express their preferences, it would make a big difference.
Liberals certainly take the time and effort to make their opinions known. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
For some reason, conservatives would just rather find scapegoats like Boehner to blame from the comfort of their easy chairs rather than doing the grunt work like liberals do.
I know many Freepers are very politically active, so I’m addressing conservatism at large.
I used to live in Virginia, 19 years in all, and Cuccinelli has always come across as unlikeable, opportunistic, and has turned out to be a big time repeat loser. Seems like everything he touches or jumps into he loses—disastrous campaigns and failed lawsuits. His bad choices are flected in his partners, Rick Santorum and Rand Paul. That alone should be enough to dismiss him.
I am and I definitely do not like Cuccinelli. As a 19 year resident of Virginia, I rarely found anyone that did. He’s a loser and likely to lose a 2017 Senate bid that is anticipated. Besides, look at the mess and losing record he’s created at the Senate Conservative Fund. What a waste of money.
Ken Cuccinelli is a conservative who wouldn’t kiss the RNC ring.
Therefore they left him twisting in the wind with no help.
Had he gotten a third of the support from the RNC that McAuliffe got from the Dems, he would be governor now.
Did you contact your congressman yet? A big grass roots effort over this recess will make the difference. (I did)
So what is Cucci’s record that is so bad?
What a waste of hot air. NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN!
In the last national election we voted exclusively to notify the GOPe that their most important mission was to get rid of both Boehner and McConnell.
What did we get...a knife in the back.
Now, what kind of power do the virginia voters have? NONE! The “fix is always in” with the Republicans.
Bravo to him. Boehner must go. If the Republicans hope to restore any sense of credibility, they need to clean house and rid the party of Obama enablers.
Well cool. Let's see him do it again today, and then, speaking of which, maybe we'll get another chance to see how much of a loser Ken Cucinelli is if/when he's not actively opposed by the entire GOPe establishment.
Heave Ho. Bambi’s oompah-loompah has got to go
After the RINOs undercut Cuccinelli in the last election, I am for this. VA RINOs gave us a Gov who is not allowing illegal aliens to vote. Thanks smart people!
Just imagine if this was successful! I think McConnell would be pretty nervous!
> “As a 19 year resident of Virginia, I rarely found anyone that did.”
What part of Virginia are you a ‘resident’? And from where did you originate?
> “Besides, look at the mess and losing record hes created at the Senate Conservative Fund. What a waste of money.”
What mess and what waste would that be?
