GOP Activist Group Spokesperson Cites ‘Senior Sources’ Boehner Will Resign Speakership Tonight
Mediaite.com ^ | 4:37 pm, January 2nd, 2013 | by Noah Rothman

Ron Meyer Jr., spokesperson for the activist group American Majority Action, Appeared on MSNBC with Martin Bashir where he said that he is hearing rumors form reliable sources that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will resign the speakership tonight.

“We need a new Speaker,” Meyer said. “There are serious rumors that at the conference tonight, at 5 o’clock, John Boehner will announce to the conference that he is resigning as Speaker of the House.”

Bashir said he found that hard to believe, to which Meyer replied that he also found it unlikely. Bashir pressed and asked if there was any evidence to back this up or a candidate who is seeking to replace Boehner as speaker. Meyer replied that he thought Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) was spearheading this “coup,” but had no evidence to back that up.

“I’m not going to name names, just watch tonight,” Meyer said.

Bashir said he found that hard to believe, to which Meyer replied that he also found it unlikely.

With Meyer essentially stating here that even he doesn't trust his own source, it's a safe bet that nothing's happening.

It would be the honorable thing to do.

and the media will go crazy praising him for sacrificing his Speakership to thwart the “mean conservatives” on the ‘Fiscal Ckiff’ LOL!

Oh, the scripts the media has...

He has "reliable sources" yet he finds it "unlikely"?

So how "reliable", then, are these sources?

Since it doesn’t have to be a sitting Legislator, somebody should nominate Allen West. It’s kick ass time and there would be none better unless Sarah would agree to do it. But, of course, it’s not their “turn”.

They're just trying to get us all excited ... and then they'll pull the rug out from under us.

(HOWEVER, Breitbart is reporting the same, so there is a faint glimmer of hope!)

I’m not sure I understand your meaning. Do you think that if lots of people leave a comment on The Weeper’s facebook page asking him to resign, then he will?

FWIW, thanks for the link. I did “like” all the comments about him resigning.

I was quoting PST, which (I think) is three hours behind EST.

Good! That'll send him and the RINOs a message. Thanks

Hope it is true, but doubt that it is.

The split vote on the Fiscal Cliff bill was a definite ‘no confidence’ vote against Boehner, even though the bill passed.

"Senior sources" hanging out at the senior center?

Either he's extremely -- morbidly -- conscientious and obsessed by honor and shame or this is all a crock. Ordinary politicians don't resign over something like this.

Then again, he does cry a lot, so who knows?

Boner just wants to be begged to stay-—and I’m sure the dems will oblige.

I don’t think so. All the phone calls, faxes and emails to our Congresscritters didn’t send a message. But there’s really nothing else to do about it now anyway, so might as well “like” some facebook comments.

The blaze said it was an erroneous report so nothing to see here. But tomorrow the house has 20 republicans ready to oust Him, but they don’t know who to nominate.

Sure, wait until after the vote. Cry baby can pat himself on the back for a job well done. Job done in helping to destroy America, that is.

I hope it's true! And if so, I hope the door hits crybaby Boner really hard on the ass on the way out! Good riddance. Too bad this didn't happen on Dec 30 instead of Jan 2. But I still have to see it to believe it.
