“Dittos!!... No Eric Cantor!... He is too sissified and rino in elephant clothes.....”

There has always been something very womanly about him....Too soft-spoken to be feared by opposition....Even the picture on Drudge with Boehner which was the lead story today, he just looks like a, well wuss.......

Mark Steyn is not native born citizen.

I don't think that matters. What does matter is that he's not a citizen.

Pelosi is already in charge. 170 Rats voted for this sham bill last night.
Only 85 Rino Monkeys, from the MAJORITY party voted for it.
Now who’s in charge?

Mark Steyn is not native born citizen.

So what - we are now in a post-Constituitonal period in American history. Baraq Hussein Soetoro is not a NATURAL Born Citizen which required TWO American citizen parents.

I vote for Mark Steyn because of this issue just to shove it in the RATS face.

Good point. Even as a GOP presidential candidate, he couldn’t contain himself. I wish Gingrich would just become a Democrat. He would finally be given the credit by the media he thinks he deserves. It would be a win-win for everyone.

“Mark Levin has been promoting the idea...his suggestion is Scott Walker for Speaker.”

What all of this dialogue is saying is that there are any number of qualified people outside the House that would make an excellent Speaker. The flip side of that is that these a$$holes, left to their own devices (and a broken “seniority system” that isn’t found anywhere in the Constitution) elect the biggest turd in the punchbowl every time! It’s time to sh!tcan the “it’s my turn” mantra.

I know. I do have to call foul on that, though. Saying FDR is the greatest president of the 20th century isn’t “bashing” Reagan. Even though I feel Gingrich felt that way towards Reagan, technically, the headline is not accurate. (I know it’s not yours) We don’t want to be like Rather - “fake but accurate.”

Your facts are irrefutable...in your own mind. I take Flomax and don't want to enter some sort of contest with you. I just wanted to say that your idea of "facts" differs from mine. That's all.

OH MY! The sky is falling!!! Over and over for months the same ole dribble. Get it, people do like Newt. I guess we can't have a pinch for his past wives (Grow up). I rather have him sitting by Nancy vs. Romney giving gay marriage the green light in his state or his blueprint to Obamacare/Romneycare. The jive doesn't get it. Seriously.

Hensarling is no longer on the Leadership team. Cathy McMorris Rodgers took his spot. She voted w/ JB. As did Greg Walden (the only other Leadership member to do so).

How is this not a stinging indictment on JB?

“Is there anything that stops Pelosi from instructing House Dems to vote for Boehner and keep him where he is??”


Nothing except Pelosi’s ego, which is why she won’t do it. And the last time a Democrat voted for a Republican for Speaker (Jim Traficant voting for Hastert in 2001), the RATs didn’t name him to *any* committees.

I don’t give a damn about Newt’s personal life. What matters to me is his record, and as Speaker, he proved himself to be a mediocre leader at best. He’s as bad as Boehner in that regard. He’s great at giving lectures, but when it comes to actually getting it done, he’s always AWOL. And today he paints this revisionist history of how he single-handedly balanced the budget four years in a row, which is complete BS. Not one single year of his entire House career was our budget ever in balance. Noot is only a legend in his own mind. His leadership ability sucks, and his latest Presidential campaing is evidence of that.

You haven’t offered anything to refute them. If Gingrich’s own supporters can’t offer any defense except name-calling, that’s an indictment. There are hundred of article on Free Republic about the impeachment and his romance with Pelosi. You are going to take the Clinton tactic, that it depends on what the meaning of is is? What exactly do you like about that guy?

Lankford replaced Price? Wow, I didn’t know that. This marks the first time I have ever seen Price go against Boehner. Now I know why. It wasn’t on principle. It was because Boehner took his spot away.

The Democrats love the guy. Who else but Speaker Crybaby could be more ineffective and on more than one occasion snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The road to recovery for this country is no sure thing as long as liberals dominate the debate but having a clown like Boehner just continue to roll over for them is too much.

You should be thrilled with Boehner now that he has restored the top tax rate to where it was when Noot was Speaker. I really do not see a bit of difference in the two. Obama rolls Boehner just like Clinton rolled Noot.

I submit that many are missing the point while arguing about rearranging the deck chairs.

The Republican party is run by an entrenched group that will protect it’s power at all costs. There will be no Speaker elected who will change anything.

The party is rotten within and is enabling decades of decline and possibly a major societal meltdown. This party hasn’t had the courage to stop the madness for many years, look at the record. We have passed the fiscal tipping point anyway.

Register independent. Your occasional primary victories in states with closed primaries aren’t helping either, don’t let those stop you.

Do this one tiny protest. You can still vote for any Republican you find worthy of your support in general elections.

The old ways are gone. You must scare the party by defecting until it changes direction.

Besides, you’ll really help screw the polling up.

I don't believe it because I am telling you I don't buy the revision of your history. Too vague; too angry. I don't want a weak person. I don't care about a person's past life as long as they have turned their mistakes into good and ask for forgiveness. I don't expect to have a perfect candidate. Newt knows the media and takes them to task. No matter who you support, there will NEVER be a change until you have a person that can literally outmatch the media. You got a name, buddy, that can use Newt's solutions. Don't worry to reply-some of your posts surely don't follow your tag.
