After caucusing with my colleagues tonight, I will be voting for a change in House Leadership tomorrow. Now is a good time for change.

Time is short. Hopefully most of those who will vote against Boner are staying quiet and keeping it to themselves.
i contacted my congress critter today and asked him to vote against Boehner. Hope he does.. we got to keep up the pressure on the political class. if they don’t cooperate...they get fired.
They just came out of a caucus meeting...since 530. A three hour meeting. I’m sure there were speeches and pressure being brought to bear, and cries for “unity”
More are coming...trust me
Yes, but 6 years ago would have been better.
I can hear it now. "A vote against Boehner is a vote for Pelosi!"
Maybe there’s a chance to get rid of Boehner. I’m hoping if they get 20 or more votes against Crybaby early in the count maybe a bunch of fence sitters will openly break with the Speaker. I want to be hopeful but we all know Boehner and his lieutenants have their lists too of the undecideds and are promising them committee assignments, chairmanships, and fed money for projects back home. Tomorrow, we’ll see if we have enough Republicans willing to stand up for the country or can be bought off and sellout for the right amount of money and power.
I hope you’re right. If you hear of any more not previously reported, please post it.
I’m sure you’re right. Disgusting jerks.
“Time is short.”
Not necessarily...things can move VERY QUICKLY.
If we do reach the magic number, I’d expect Boener to step-down. I think he’s a good guy, but a HORRENDOUS LEADER. He will still support us in the end by not making a spectacle of himself.
Tell me why I should trust you..
Those who back this sloppy drunk are on record for doing so!
Maybe Boner is looking for an excuse to step down and he’ll make excuses and do so.
It’s growing! Great!
What’s the score now? How many do we know that we have?
The fence sitters now are looking at the gamble, whether to risk not-killing-the-king, and loss of privileges/chairmanships. However, there is the other side of this coin...
With Boehner on the losing side, these pols risk not being right with the new non-Boehner speaker, and loss of privileges/chairmanships doled out by a new speaker. They will be relegated to the back bench, keeping boehner company.
