Posted on 01/02/2013 5:08:45 PM PST by drewh
I have confirmed with a group of Congressmen that House Speaker John Boehner will not be reelected Speaker tomorrow.
He will either resign or be forced out tomorrow.
Only 17 members are needed to block Speaker Boehner's election tomorrow. A Speaker needs an absolute majority of all votes cast for a specific person.
If no one has a majority, the House is speakerless. I've confirmed these rules with the House Parliamentarian.
“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.......
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?
I’m not the biggest fan of McCain, but he doesn’t deserve that insult.
newt, keep your sexual desires under control
“Or R. Lee Ermey”
Nah, he doesn’t like maggots, much less lead a bunch of them! But he would keep order now wouldn’t he!
When I was crying, “fire Boehner,” I said no one can be worse than him. Leave it to the rinos to position the next possible worst candidate. sigh...................................!
Not gonna happen. He’s too useful to the slack-jawed sodomite in the White Hut.
Honest to God. Imagine for a moment.
If these morons can sluff a no account like JJJ or Shiela Jackson Mars, or Al Fruckin Franklin into office, I have to say: Why the hell not Nugent!?
lol - hey, I don’t make the posters, I only steal ‘em.
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.
Eeewwww. Look at his hand - it looks like he just got finished jacking off an elephant.
“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.”
Please do not put Canter or another RINO in. Choose a real conservative like Allen West.
Yep..sounds like the little weenie is posturing to take Boehner’s seat. I say Trey Gowdy or Michelle Bachman. Of course...my absolute choice would be Mark Levin!!
Agree totally! He can’t explain conservative principles to save his life either!
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?
Ignore this. The guy’s a flake with unnamed sources who has already contradicted this story himself. Doesn’t belong in breaking news, but whatcha gonna do?
How about Jason Chaffetz? Ya might have to check his record. Just damn.
“Is there anything that stops Pelosi from instructing House Dems to vote for Boehner and keep him where he is??”
Even The Great One, at times, can be too clever by half.
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.
I thought that was the way it is, but was unsure.
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?
He would be great too!
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.
This is wonderful
too bad it wasn’t a few days ago, but still GREAT news!
idk how I feel about gingrich but anyone is better!
good riddance boner
If SOMEONE doesn't force SPENDING CUTS then there really is NO hope.
Yes, Article 2, US Constitution, the President MUST be a “natural born Citizen.”
Make it so and draft Newt Gingrich for speaker.
Newt has a lot to offer us in these most trying times. The lady is probably very nice, but he needs to leave her in his audience more and not push her on us. Just a shade or two too stark looking for me.
WEST is the BEST!
oh that would be wonderful :)
No way, Marriage is forever, bleach or no bleach, and Newt has finally gotten marriage right!
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.
Dude, you really need to lay off the crack.
Those of us, sane and over 21 and paying attention, who were sober, not on drugs, and gainfully employed remember no such thing! Newt was the mastermind who brought about the republican majorities in both houses. It would be wonderful indeed to see Mr. Newt in the speakership again.
Nice us not a word usually used to describe her.
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.
dang I am already getting the feeling it may be cantor because the folks here do not want him
If you had a clue you'd get your head out of your a$$ and quit using movie slogans favored by the fatally hip clowns who also DON'T have a clue.
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.
