No, you’re correct. Evidently amnesty will now be shoved down our throats.

The Republicans are not conservatives. They are the slightly right wing of the big government party.

Agree - a big f-you. I hope and pray a lot of tea party or very staunch conservatives get elected in November and can give this guy and the GOP-e HELL.

He's the kind of Republican that will be featured in a semi-flattering 5,000 word profile in the New York Slimes Sunday Magazine.

Just to show how balanced their coverage is.

The fact that this was a secret ballot makes what is in the hearts of most of these Republicans not so secret.

The guy is a documented traitor and amnesty scum .
He killed the CA Gop in redistricting to save his own district.

Once he steps out in front of a camera, be fun to see someone throw a pie at him. They are totally against the Tea Party movement. They want amnesty. They allowed Obamacare to go through; why not amnesty. What a failed outlook to work against your own base; a group of control freaks set out to work against traditional governance.

This cannot be simply GOPe, guy got majority vote.

It’s secret so faux-conservatives can vote their true colors.

The really really bad news is he was elected by the republicans in the house. More proof there are no conservatives in the party anywhere. Americans are on their own...

one more FU to conservatives from the GOP

Leave it to the GOPe to double-down on stupidity.

I had hopes we’d at least take the Senate. Dumber than a box of rocks they are. (no insult to rocks everywhere)

The message is “Get rid of Cantor and Cochran if you want. We don’t care. You’ll never get rid of enough of us to change anything.”

If I was in the congress I’d vote for Pelosi for speaker. That would at least send Boner packing.

What a surprise. I think it will be fitting to elect Bohner and his scum followers to minority status after the coming election when they push amnesty. I frankly don't need these guys feathering their nests while lying to their constituents. Besides, a total government in control of the dems will hasten the coming Rev II much quicker then the slow pace it is on now.

The next party is going to have to include white working class people who would die before they voted for a Republican.

Let’s get at it. Time’s a wasting.
