Skip to comments.Allen West for House Speaker (out with Boehner)
Posted on 11/08/2012 2:39:26 PM PST by publius321
Literally, an organization in San Fran Freakshow and George Soros spent millions to libel and defame our venerable patriot Allen West here in FLORIDA. Unacceptable. This is WAR.
(Excerpt) Read more at youtu.be ...
Is there really much of a choice? Isn’t this traditionally the senior member of the majority party?
Is Allen West even going to be a Congressman next year?
heard he;s up right now in his recount and has already got 300 more votes than was reported
the man has balls unlike many others on our side who will not look into these results which are not adding up
Go, West wind, go!
he;s winning thus far
If West survives the recount, yes. A thousand times yes.
“Is Allen West even going to be a Congressman next year?”
Depends upon the results of the recount...etc.
But the point is that constitutionally, the House can make anyone House Speaker. The House Speaker does not have to be an elected member of Congress.
The House can elect anyone they want - even a non-member.
Boehner needs to go, period!
It is posts like this that make conservatives look really stupid.
I was never a fan of West's style of politics. He lacks tact.
It’s insolent posts like yours that make conservatives look like assholes. Thank God you are the exception to the rule.
Sure he's direct, but the thing is that he's not lacking in spine.
He didn't go along to get along and, honestly, that's killing the Republican party (refusing to stand for anything, that is).
He still LOST!
Couldn't have said it better to this n00b, myself. Thanks, publius.
Someone else asked earlier today...where are all you guys coming from, twitter?
Col West has done more for this country than Crybaby Boehner ever will.
Is the recount over? Last I heard West was up several hundred votes.
“He still LOST”
He was my congressman here in Florida. He was actually &*()%# over here in Florida by RINO’s in the state legislature who DELIBERATELY redistricted him OUT of office.
I knew about this for a year. They deliberately carved up his freaking district and made it more liberal. They put the most Democrat, liberal pocket of RIVIERA BEACH - what WAS previously Alcee Freaking Hastings’ district - and made it WEST’S district!!!!
I am spearheading a campaign here to hold those state RINO’s ACCOUNTABLE and get them “primaried” out of office and replaced with conservatives.
The GOP has controlled the State House, State Senate and the Executive for the past 20 years!
I KNOW these people. They deliberately (*&)^*)&^%*&^ him and they are going to have HELL TO PAY - when we get done with these traitors.
It SHOULD be bleedin’ obvious to the RNC “Leadership” that the candidates who suffer massive attacks by the left, are the ones they really fear and thus we should be running with them. I wish they’d open their eyes.
Anyone can become speaker. I don't think it even has to be a congressman.
The Speaker of the House is elected by members of the House of Representatives.
If you can get ONE (ONE) vote for your idiotic idea, please let me know.
For the record, your candidate will need 218 Congress members to become Speaker.
