Posted on 12/21/2012 6:34:07 PM PST by HenryArmitage
Several conservative House Republican members are contemplating a plan to unseat Speaker John Boehner from his position on January 3, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Staffers have compiled a detailed action plan that, if executed, could make this a reality. The Republicans, both conservatives and more establishment members alike, are emboldened after the failure of Boehners fiscal cliff Plan B on Thursday evening. Dissatisfaction with Boehner is growing in the House Republican conference, but until now there hasnt been a clear path forward.

Throw them all out. R’s and D’s
Any who voted for that gold-plated health care plan for themselves and Obama-care for us - throw them in prison.
That would be a good thing. The problem is the rest of the 233 are worthless idiots to. Is there a single good House member?
Its time to break some eggs. Go home Boehner. You’ve allowed 17 trillion dollars of debt. You’ve done enough damage.
Boehner needs 218 votes to be speaker or it gets vacated until someone does.
Do it please. He should step down voluntarily.
What...they don’t have enough guts to stand up and vote against him? Seems pretty clear cut to me. Let the dice fly!
Someone with ‘attachments’ and no tear ducts please!
I suggest tar and feathers.
Yes, there’s a few, Gohmert for one.
If they grew some balls and did this, I would consider supporting them in 2014.
Right now, I’m not going to, because there is no reason to.
Why is Lucy holding the football again??????????
I hope there is a shred of truth on this; Boehner has been a disaster for the last two FULL years.
Had he championed some of the Tea Party initiatives, Obama and the Dems might have suffered a massive defeat this fall.
Now watch, how his “friends” across the aisle and Obama completely abandon him,like the good little Marxists they all are, once Boehner’s usefulness is over.
Sniff... sniff.. smells more like 1775 every day.
Make that 217 votes...
Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., has resigned his position, there will be 434 voting members on January 3. For someone to win the Speaker election, theyd need to secure 217 votes or a majority of everyone voting.
too late. I don’t see how they get all these House Republicans to rally around a single replacement during the last 2 weeks in Dec. All this should have done all this long ago
The fact that many conservatives were willing to stand up against him
on this Tax Raising bill at least they no longer fear him, regardless of
Committee assignments or Chairmanships.
This could be a promising development. However all leadership
must be replaced including Cantor and McCarthy.
Tom McClintock is a piece of gold amongst the dreck.
Heck, they vote for everything she wants anyway!
But, seriously, Boehner just needs to listen to his Members. Though Cantor would win, and (appropriately chastened by Boehner's dethronment!) do better.
If this will be anything like the primaries where the conservatives couldn’t agree on a candidate this should be lotsa fun.
Yes it is way past due, but if u read the plan, it is doable.
