Posted on 10/16/2013 3:30:50 PM PDT by Olog-hai
With John Boehner receiving low marks from both moderates and conservatives over his handling of the now- resolved government shutdown and debt-ceiling battles, discussion is rife over whether any fellow House Republican will challenge him as speaker.
Though the conventional wisdom is that the wily Ohioan will survive, there is enough residual anger to make his continued hold on the position something less than a foregone conclusion.
The name being mentioned most as his potential successor is Georgia Rep. Tom Price, who resisted pressure to challenge Boehner at the start of the 113th Congress in January.

Tom McClintock would be a great addition to your list.
I wish he was a lot more visible, but he just does his job and doesn't look for attention....sigh....
You can add Allen West to that list. I know the left would call him a few names. I like Tom DeLay too. Get “The Hammer” back in there to get things done.
Exactly my point:
Perhaps that should have been spelled “ Wile E. Ohioan”. Makes more sense that way.
Rick Santelli - screaming no more spending!!
Road Runner Reid - who knew?
do you realize that Gowdy is a amnesty traitor ??
did you read that troll trashed Rep Steve King from Iowa fir fighting against
“The name being mentioned most as his potential successor is Georgia Rep. Tom Price, who resisted pressure to challenge Boehner at the start of the 113th Congress in January. ”
If he once backed off from challenging the most spineless wimp in congress, what good is he? Replacing one spineless wimp for another?
Boehner announced over a month ago he was not re-running for speakership of House — don’t remember date but was before shutdown was a thought — a thought to us anyway.
Price was my rep before redistricting... In a word... NO!
We need a FIGHTER as the speaker! TP is NOT that guy...
America is sinking! Everyone to the life boats! Women, children and Boehner first!
Boehner gets a pass. He isn’t the problem. Did not have the votes. Elections have consequences. Not one member of his caucus voted for Obamacare.
Dump this weepy drunk.
You know what is funny? I have never heard a democrat say “elections have consequences” when republicans were in power. Never.
“Okay bring in Jim Traficant.”
I loved that guy every time he took the floor - “Beam me up, Scotty.”
