The spokesman of one of the organizations leading this fight told MSNBC’s Martin Bashir today that they’re feeling confident of a House Speaker TBD come 2013. When asked if they can get the 16 votes they say are needed to depose John Boehner as Speaker, American Majority Action’s Ron Meyer, Jr, said, “Yes, we can get that number.”

Light it up, let it fall, do whatever is necessary to collapse the entitlement mentality. A man chooses his time for pain, instead of letting it happen later, 10 times worse. Sissies, all of them.
Schweikert is a coward. If we don’t start SOMEWHERE, they’ll just walk all over us. This the first battle, and this is the first battle we should fight OUR way. If you go the way the Dems want you to, you will no longer have any credibility.
All this really tells us is that Schweikert has been broken and tamed by Boner.
Jim Jordan was raised in Champaign County, Ohio, graduating from Graham High School in 1982, where he was a four-time state champion in wrestling with a career record of 150-1. He went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin, where he was a two-time NCAA wrestling champion. He later earned a Masters degree in Education from the Ohio State University and a Law Degree from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio.
Beat (eventual) two time Olympic Gold Medalist (wrestling legend and current OSU coach) John Smith in NCAA finals. Not one to shy away from a fight. Go JJ!!!!
Do it anyway. It is no longer enough to warn the rinos, we must now show them resolve. They have proven themselves to cower under intimidation and harsh rhetoric. The time to play is over.
Besides, who here doesn’t see Boehner caving in the next few days. All this negotiation is simply to sting people along, give him time to intimidate conservatives as opposed to liberals, and maybe negotiate a golden parachute for himself.
I’m not optimistic Bonehead will be deposed but let him sweat a bit until the new year..
Got to know when and where to fight your battles. This is a goner. The voters want to “tax the rich”. ...period. It polls really well. Not only that the rich want to tax the rich. Most of the millionaires on the east and west coasts voted for Obama. Hey if they don’t care why should we? Its like fighting for a Muslim country...they don’t want our help.
So, everything that has been said in opposition to Boehner is just ALL SHOW, no GO? TALK tough, do nothing? We thought so.
Heck yes, LIGHT IT UP, it's not your vanity that is at stake.
Way to go FReepers. Destroy the Republicans, one by one.
Unless we’re going into full revolution mode, with guns and gallows, press Boehner to do the right thing. Put the pressure on him.
What the hell makes everyone think that trashing what’s left of the republicans will bring anything good? Look where it got us with the election. Well done, simpletons.
The thing to do, and it’s quite simple... is to do absolutely nothing, but of course, since taxes will be raised on the middle class (which, supposedly Obama was fighting against, and can use this against the Repubs), the Repubs NEED to articulate better on how this is what the Dems wanted, and the Repubs wanted no part of it.
After 2010 it was impossible to do it, yet Bohner did nothing toward that R house win, it was natural reaction to an all Dem gubment.
And he did suffer a small loss this past election
But I figure now it will really be tough to get rid of him.
No one wants to fight for THAT job.
I used to do a Pelosi ping on the dumb things she said, but with a split government she beats Bohner hands down in a fight. She is a passionate fighter who believes in her lib mission, destroying Republicans first. What is Bohner there for?
as per the great one, the house should simply pass a bill cutting the lower 2 rates and go home
” press Boehner to do the right thing. Put the pressure on him.”
And just what planet are you living on? The only “pressure” Boner needs to feel is the wind from the door that’s being closed behind him as he changes offices having been voted out as Speaker. Boner wouldn’t know “the right thing” if it bit him on the ass!
Why is everyone blaming Bonier? He’s like the last guy left standing up to Obama. What’s he fighting for anyway? Freepers hate him. The rich love Obama. He should pack up go home and enjoy Christmas. Tell everyone to smoke some more hopium and call him when they hit bottom.
You don't actually think that Soro, Buffet and the rest of these rich are actually going to PAY these taxes?
What this endorsement, and donations to Rat campaigns, buys is immunity from publicity of the special targeted tax loopholes especially for these scum. They don't pay, get subsidies, and the public NEVER finds out. It's nice to own the MSM.
That and the government crushing any up and coming competition.
Tax the rich will guarantee that these rich pay even less and WE pay much more.
IMO, the Republicans should pass one bill that entends the Bush tax rates for everyone except for the top rate and make them PERMANENT and tie this bill to eliminating the AMT and add something else the Republicans want to this bill - dare Reid & 0bama not to pass it.
Then pass a second bill that extends the Bush tax cut for the upper income taxpayers and add something the Dems want - let the Dems and 0bama shoot this bill down, so they own the tax raises on the wealthy & small businesses.
Athough the higher rate will affect me personally, the permanent tax rates will help future generations including my children.
Then use the debt ceiling debate to cut spending, threaten to shut down the government by not raising the debt celing if there are no spending cuts.
“Why is everyone blaming Bonier?”
You actually believe that Boner is “the last guy standing?” Get serious, he’s all about himself. He is leading from behind. I am actually heartened by the moves to take away his speakership. You have to believe he’s getting worried that he’s stepped over the line with these committee assignment take aways. When you are loosing the “war,” you need to find a new general with a new plan. We are there! I just hope that the requisite small number of good Conservatives in the House have the fortitude to kick his ass out. He is a singular disgrace as a “leader.”
The reason to take down Boehner is that he’s a proven quisling.
The way you get people to quit selling you out is to make selling you out be more expensive than anything they can hope to gain by selling you out.
Boehner represents Ohio.
Ohio voted for Obama!
Boehner cannot represent republicans anymore.
Obama OWNS Boehner!
Boehner MUST GO!
Secondly, Boehner doesn't even put up a fight against this guy. Once again, Boehner and the rest of the GOPe are compromising with themselves; ready to give the Kenyan whatever he desires!
Funny you don't have any outrage of Boehner getting rid of all Tea Party House members from committee seats. Please tell us dumb-shit, how does this “bring anything good”?
You are a 1st class putz!
And for the third option, my recommendation would be to not tie increasing the debt ceiling limit to anything. Instead I would tell Boner/Boehner to absolutely declare that the debt ceiling will not be increased by even one single penny, period. And the go home for the holiday, and let the demturds & 0dumb0 & the media huff & puff & go insane trying to convince the Repubs to raise the debt ceiling, instead of them cutting spending. Unfortunately Boner/Boehner is so scared sh_tless of 0dumb0, that he will never do any of these three options.
Unless were going into full revolution mode, with guns and gallows...
I was with you up to that point.
What the hell makes you think that continuing to support the feckless GOP will bring any good?
You do realize that the GOP's Fiscal Cliff plan will put us at $18.4 Trillion in the hole by 2015 versus Obama's $18.9 Trillion, right?
Why even bother?
Wasn't he that really annoying doctor on Deep Space Nine?
Equally as troubling as Boehner are his spineless henchmen, the “Casper the Ghost Republicans”.
"What the hell makes everyone think that trashing whats left of the republicans will bring anything good? Look where it got us with the election. Well done, simpletons."
Romney losing the election had nothing to do with Conservatives supposedly "trashing" him. Let's stop with the phony revisionist history.
He is squarely against conservatives so if he lives through this near death experience, he will become more aggressive against the GOP base, not his Dear Reader.
The Rinos came out of election blaming tin man Romney’s loss on conservatives.
Try to keep your eye on the target. It is not the tax increase, but the spending cuts. Everyone gets wrapped around inevitable tax increases while Congress, the COurts and Excecutive Branch keeps spending like drunken Soldiers.
(As a retired Chief, I never like the the phrase “like a drunken Sailor” hit too close to home.)
My point is I think the finger pointing is misguided. This isn’t Romney’s fault...the So-Cons...Akins...the GOPe..Boniers...
The voters had a real clear choice in this election. Higher taxes..more regulations......Abortionpalloza at the DNC with Sandra Fluke...a drunken Jennifer Granholm...free condoms...free health care...hopey ...changey...gay marriage. “TOLERANCE”...Magical windmills that will produce enough power to light up LA, Chicago and NYC
Or better jobs, less regulation, cheaper energy and higher GDP.
Hey I don’t know what to say cept give em what they want. When you have a really bad hand to hell with bluffing. Cut your losses. Sit tight and wait till the hopium wears off and when the music stops playing make sure we have a seat.
Because he has a history of caving. That and his recent purge of conservatives from important committees.
If I were in the House, if there was not a fair election for a reasonable conservative GOPer, I would lead an effort to get enough of my fellow conservatives to vote for Pelosi. No Joke.
If the GOP “leadership” can’t do a better job controlling the agenda for conservative change, why have them? All the GOPers always get a majority to vote down bills Pelosi advances.
Nuclear option for the House Conservative wing...
