I have confirmed with a group of Congressmen that House Speaker John Boehner will not be reelected Speaker tomorrow.
He will either resign or be forced out tomorrow.
Only 17 members are needed to block Speaker Boehner's election tomorrow. A Speaker needs an absolute majority of all votes cast for a specific person.
If no one has a majority, the House is speakerless. I've confirmed these rules with the House Parliamentarian.
A squeakerless House!
Heard the same earlier today on Hannity.
I’m not holding my breath though.
Get rid of this freakin idiot socialist moron Boner.
tweet Republicans , tell them get rid of this creature or else we get rid of them
Clint Eastwood for speaker.
Most of the Democrats will vote for him.
He will get a majority....
You got that right. Newt is a great strategist and can communicate phenomenally well. Boehner can do neither.
NEWT, THE BLEACHED BLOND SPOUSE HAS TO GO....
TREY GOWDY.......For speaker
Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina (R) — about the fiscal cliff bill (quote found in NYT) -
I have read the bill and cant find the spending cuts even with an electron magnifying glass.... its part medicinal, part placebo, and part treating the symptoms but not the underlying pathology.
Good, give him a hanky and show him the door.
Texas Rep. Nominates Gingrich for Speaker

We’re already speakerless. The only question is whether or not the GOP can install a speaker.
They’ve recently been referring to Pelosi as a leader. Perhaps the GOP will vote for her.
It won’t matter if the GOP-e just nominates another reliable RINO. It might be why Alan West was gerrymandered out of his district.
Only guy I know qualified to balance the budget. Did it 4 years in a row with Clinton.
Far from a done deal, is what’s coming from many corners. This Ron Meyer guy is one of those WANTING Boehner out - with good reason. But so far he’s the ONLY one who says he’s “confirmed” anything. Hope he’s right. But also hope he’s not just hyping his wishful thinking so as to believe something is going to happen when it’s not.
I’ll not believe it until I see it happen. In addition, I doubt the efficacy of getting rid of the cry-baby. Who CAN be elected in his place, and not get the same treatment shortly thereafter? The job is a thankless task that few want...
