The question is will Pelosi become the majority leader in January, 2013 or January 2015?

So you would ignore all voting habits.

And thereby willy-nilly assign members thereby never achieving any cuts or elimination of agencies.

Got it.

Pretty much the same ox.

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.

I imagine he hasn’t. So I’m going to say he has NEVER removed someone

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.

LOL! I don't ignore voting habits.

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.

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.

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.

It’s amazing, this guy is such a wimp. All he ever does is back down and concede. But all the sudden he is Mr. Tough guy with his own base.

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.

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.

Pretty basic.

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 I'm not picking at your posts. I'm simply pointing out where you are being illogical.

Boehner represents Ohio. Ohio voted for Obama.

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.

It's over.

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?

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!

You have a reputation of supporting Republicans.

Yes, I do support conservatives like Ryan, Palin, Hensarling, Issa, etc. who are all Repubs.

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?

You Betcha!

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.
