Skip to comments.AL Congressman Mo Brooks: Next Speaker May Be From the ‘More Liberal Wing’ of GOP
Posted on 09/26/2015 5:50:43 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
During Fridays Yellowhammer Radio with Cliff Sims, Rep. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) discussed the resignation of House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH).
While Boehners resignation is not effective until October 30, Brooks speculated on who the replacement would be, saying there is a smorgasbord of potential replacements from the more liberal-wing of the Republican Party.

No thanks Mel (er, Mo) - we already tried that “more liberal wing” foolishness.
Let me know how that works out for you. Sounds like a good way to finish off the GOP.
I did a little looking around, and apparently Mo Brooks is conservative. Evidently he FEARS that the libs will win again.
He is my rep and introduced Ted Cruz at Cruz’s Huntsville townhall. Very conservative . A good man, but realistic about the mess in the House.
I met him years ago and kinda liked him but he is WRONG on this. I do not think he understands what is going on in this country.
Brooks is my congressman here in North Alabama. He is VERY conservative. Boehner came down here and campaigned for Parker Griffith (former DEm) against Brooks in the GOP primary. Brooks crushed Griffith.
Brooks is one of the good guys. VERY conservative.
Too those who don’t know Month Brooks this is a heads-up as to what he sees coming. He usually knows what’s going on and what he is saying here certainly does not surprise me one bit.
I wouldn’t bet on him being more liberal...
They will win the speakership once again. Maybe next year we will be able to get a real conservative in...
People need to tell him that he is not alone about being worried... there are many of us that are tired of the manure being thrown at us (silent majority?!?).
That being said, the polititions need to open their eyes of their constituants.. “We The People”.
He is wishfully thinking.
I’d take a good solid conservative Southerner. NO more Northerners like Boehner or Romney or Ryan.
If you think that, you don’t know Mo Brooks.
Plus, I don’t like you.
Do any other Freepers read posts before commenting anymore? In the excerpted article (and audio recording), Brooks goes on to name a few possible Conservative candidates for the Speakership. Brooks also describes how Conservative members can block liberal candidates by sticking together on votes. Mo Brooks is a real Conservative. Let’s read the damned articles, people!
If I had a conservative rep, I would definitely send an email telling him/her to stay strong and that we are still supporting conservative legislation out here in the districts and not go wobbly.
It is so important that they are not discouraged.
I have a weakling, low profile rep.
