The question is will Pelosi become the majority leader in January, 2013 or January 2015?
And thereby willy-nilly assign members thereby never achieving any cuts or elimination of agencies.
It's nice that it's not just the Paulists and what was the libertarian wing of the party seeing that now that it's the conservatives' turn.
Well, if you don't have the facts (you're only imagining) I don't know why you would say he has never done so.
I'm sure as Speaker he has assigned and re-assigned because this is what Speakers do every term. Whether they may have been liberal, conservative or just plain inept I do not know.
I'm also not a Republican shill.
Boehner is going to lose this fight. I'll be pushing for that.
Reap the whirlwind.
Your vapid promises of cuts and elimination of agencies is empty and void. Point me to one.
Your time is over. Adapt or don't.
Can you follow up with a comment? Not sure what your point is.
The point is I’m inviting Boehner defenders to show us how even handed he is.
You would have a better chance of getting cuts or elimination of agencies by picking random people off of the street since neither party never has and never will do that. There might be 3 people in the house and senate who aren't power mad narcissists, and you don't get power by cutting spending and eliminating agencies.
Yet you imply they should not be considered in House assignments?
Your vapid promises of cuts and elimination of agencies
LOL. Where did I promise this?
I’m through with the GOP - I hereby pledge to vote for the most conservative Christian candidate for any and all elections, regardless of party. If no candidate meets the minimum standard, I’ll write in someone. Crybaby Boehner can kiss my fat butt.
This is so typical of the establishment. Bendover Boehner is acting like the DC madam and wants all republicans to act like whores or they'll be whipped.
Let me tell you this in plain language. I'll do whatever it takes to retire Boehner back to his hometown.
That's what happens when you try to marginalize Constitutionalists.
Live with it. You and yours did it.
...leave the GOP!!!!
...leave the GOP!!!!
I do know the committee Chairs are generally good people (Paul Ryan as Chair of Budget is certainly not a liberal appointee. Neither is Jeb Henserling on Finance. Peter King is not as conservative but as Chair of Homeland Security he was a stalwart.) Are there a couple of bad apples? Don't know of any but like you I don't know everything that goes on.
No, I never promised anything.
All I said is that you will never achieve cuts without knowing how people vote.
Not with the Republicans involved, anyway.
But you know that.
I do dearly hope the GOP goes the way of the royalist party. Soon.
I'll be doing everything I can to make that happen.
And that seems to be why you think it OK to appoint members willy nilly onto committees with no consideration for their past.
I understand. Not too bright...but I understand.
You can pick at my posts all you want, you can score all the 'points' that make you feel better, but you can't direct my vote. Or even ask for it.
You have lost. Badly.
Pragmatism at work. Ain’t it beautiful?
We’re a nation of damn fools.
I haven't lost a thing. The "base" doesn't belong to me. Never did and never will.
And I'm not picking at your posts. I'm simply pointing out where you are being illogical.
And there it is, summed up perfectly. Bonehead believes that because Ohio went for Obama his job as a representative of the state is to support Obama as well. Even more so if his district went for Obama. He needs to step down and be replaced by someone from a district that didn't go for Obama. Obama owns him now.
Sort of. Ohio has 88 counties. 14 of them voted for you know who. Sickening, isn’t it?
Quit your griping! Get it done!
Do you think that 'pointing out where you are being illogical' is going to win the party votes?
That will work as well as telling principled conservatives that 'not voting for Romney is the same as voting for Obama'.
How did that exersize work out for you?
Boehner has gone over to the Obamistas ~ time to purge him for his own good!
I didn't post anything to the contrary.
'pointing out where you are being illogical' is going to win the party votes?
So for some reason you think I'm trying to win your vote? If so, I'm not sure why you think this. I'm pointing out fallacy in a line of argument on a political thread. That is all.
All the libertarian tea partiers should run next cycle as democrats and the social conservative tea partiers run as republicans....
Then when the tea party caucus gets to be the majority part in both senate and house they should bolt from both parties at the same time and create the “unified tea party” unified on fiscal responsibility.
Imagine the logs the MsM would lay on that day...!
It could render a major blow to BOTH parties!
Sadly, will never happen.
We need to look at the tactis of the “UKIP” party in Britain as it could be a goodd model for how the tea party can become a major party unto itself!
I wish we could draft Newt in as speaker, he would be even awesomer as he wouldn’t have a seat to defend.....
He’s a disgusting drag queen.
Never a Conservative. Once a RINO. Now a Jackass.
THEY RETURN WITH SLAUGHTER!
TIME TO BRING THE GODS OF THE COPYBOOK HEADINGS TO THE GOP DOORSTEP!!!!!!
Kipling just wrote down what everyone with eyes sees.
I can't decide for the next phase, his poem 'If' or 'The Betrothed' is more appropriate. Let me consider this in a wreath of smoke....
Looking at your prior postings shows that.
You don't much support conservatives.
Gets pretty old don't it?
Regular as grandma or clockwork...
Every 4 years.
Pubbies may have overstepped this year, though.
Boehner is going to cave. It is just a matter of when.
But why should I support four Paul-ites who never obtained notoriety till this week? I don't think a whole lot of Ron Paul so why would I be a knee-jerk and automatically believe these Paul-ite reps who did not support the Ryan bill?
“The conservatives in the house need to band together and refuse to vote for Boner as speaker...even if that puts Pelosi back in.
Time to play hardball with this ahole!” - B
Tell boehner that conservatives are voting LT COl West for speaker, and if he doesn’t get himself and the other RINOs on board they lose their chairmanships when speaker Pelosi replaces them. Boehner drew first blood. Time fro conservatives to go Rambo on him.
You aren't conservative. You are Republican.
I notice you don't list Bachmann.
You are not the solution. You are part of the problem.
Yes, I like Bachmann.
So if I get one wrong I'm out of your club, eh? LOL.

He just gave away 800 Billion dollars without notifying his base.
Boehner’s base is located on K Street apparently. It sure isn’t us.
Actually Boehner already put one there. Remember the 100 watt light bulb ban?
Been saying it and saying it and saying it....
For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
