No, love him or hate him, The Big Boner really isn't a weak “Speaker” — since he seems to control the House with an iron hand. But he most definitely is a weak “speaker.”
Moreover, at a time when the GOP desperately needs a bunch of articulate spokesmen, he's definitely the wrong man for the job.
Start with the recognition that according to the Constitution, the Speaker doesn't need to be a member of the House. Doesn't even need to be an elected official.
Therefore, find the most persuasive, articulate and “least scary” conservative spokesman available, and make him Speaker. Marco Rubio would probably be my choice, but there are plenty of others, both inside and outside of politics.
Newt Gingrich would be my choice.

Our Speaker is not only not speaking, no one else is either.
Yes we need voices, but they are silent. The only time I ever heard of these two “Conservatives” is when they started babbling about being tossed off their committees.
Where have they been the rest of the time. Only the people in their States know because they use their franking privileges to keep them informed. Speak up Conservatives, lets hear from you.
