Rep. Raul Labrador said House Speaker John Boehner should lose his leadership post if he pushes forward with immigration reform this year, CQ Roll Call reported.

I think it should cost him his speakership, Mr. Labrador, Idaho Republican, said in an interview with the Capitol Hill news organization.

"they’re kind of frustrated with the direction of this leadership"

There is no "leadership". Neither in the House nor the Senate.

Bonehead Boehner, Clueless Cantor, and Quisling McCarthy need to be retired to the back of the bus. They are proved sellouts and wussies. The Republicans need leadership and not be an echo chamber for Obama and the Donkeys.

Could be good news, except that the next ‘it is his turn’ guy would probably be Cantor or Ryan. Neither would be much of an improvement.

IIRC, Bachmann was the one who caused the backdown in January 2013, when there was talk of a potential revolt then.

So we might (less than 10% chance) replace The Weeper of the House with another RINO from the same herd.

What’s the definition of “insanity”?

Doesn’t staging a ‘coup’ normally mean TODAY...we are making plans to see that you don’t finish your term?

These guys—GOPe— have their heads so far up where the sun don’t shine that idle threats don’t even phase them.

RINO Obamacrat John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner has finally told his sorry staff to come up with a CYA plan: a CYA Website on Benghazi.

We don’t give a RINO about your RINO, Boehner, we just want you to appoint a Special Prosecutor on Benghazi.

Stop trying to CYA and appoint a Benghazi Special Prosecutor!

Appoint or go home!

Loyal RINO Obamacrats Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell, Cornyn, and McCain will run to Obama’s side and rescue his highly unpopular “Obama Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico” with the even more unpopular “RINO Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico.”

Always eager to fail, the RINOs have decided at their weekend RINO hug fest that rescuing the already failed Obama Amnesty Plan is just to tempting a guaranteed failure to pass up.

Boehner’s support will guarantee that no RINOs will ever again receive any Latino votes.

Personally, I’d like to see Trey Gowdy and Louie Gohmert take over the Speaker and House Majority Leader positions, with no preference for which person fills either position. ...They are Conservatives and not afraid to speak out and promote actions. ....Cantor, Ryan and Boehner are too “into” the political process of ‘reaching across the aisle’, so they don’t ever get anything positive done (like McCain).

BLA-BLA-BLA,

They love to whine in the House but none of them will stand up and make the case why THEY themselves would do it better as Speaker.

How about YOU Lou Gomert? Step up to the plate.

You know what the really good news would be if Bonehead lost the speakership?

He probably wouldn't run for re-election.

I want someone who does’t have any skeletons in the closet, where Obama, can use it for black-mail. It is apparent that Obama has something on Boehner, McCain and a few others. I think Boehner is either Gay or having an affair and McCain for Vietnam(traitor) information.

You are correct, it was Michele Bachmann with I believe Steve King and one other who confronted Boehner.

Boehner ended up allowing a vote on the sequester which has now been given away by Ryan.

But Boehner later stabbed Bachmann in the back by pulling her off the intelligence committee. Now Bachmann has announced she will not run again.

I’ve said it for more than a year now, Boehner has got to go, must be driven out of office asap.

“It’s the Atty. General that appoints Special Porsecutors.”

I think they meant to say Boehner needs to to appoint a select committee. That is what Boehner CAN DO, if he had any stones or integrity, which he doesn’t.

Raul Labrador is my congresscritter. I just sent him an attaboy and told him that immigration/amnesty is a losing issue. Out here in the country owebamacare is killing us and if immigration is passed it will bury the corpse. If the GOPe wants to win the Senate this year NO AMNESTY - FIGHT owebamacare!

The USA needs LEADERSHIP. There is none right now.

Interesting is that Raul Labrador was one of the original House Gang of 8 working on an Illegal Alien Amnesty bill....now he is calling for Boehner to be removed for trying to pass Illegal Alien Amnesty...

Its time for the GOP to dump Illegal Alien Amnesty and any Immigration nonsense immediately....its Amnesty Liberal and making the GOP look stupid

Just Secure the Borders and Deport all the Illegal Aliens. Stop the stupidity

Labrador is being consistent. He publically abandoned the House Gang of 8 when it became apparent that they were as intent on amnesty as the Senate's Gang of 8.
