Did not see one yet. Trying to access CSPAN on line. Site looks different. Are they requiring a registration to watch?
hey, as long as Boehner can play golf with Obama....the hell with the American people (PUKE)
The Cheeto only needs 201, pathetic.
I believe he may go down in history as the Speaker elected by the fewest votes.
webster..got a little clapping
Steve King nominates Daniel Webster of FL.
No after Jeb wins, it will be the same message of subservience just slightly repackaged: “Now that we control all 3 (the House, Senate and Presidency) we have to govern from the center, reach out across the isle and work with our Democrat colleagues to restore America and get people back to work”. Blah blah blah....
Why should we expect anything different?
Until and unless the GOP gets taken over by real conservatives I don’t see a reason to believe differently.
Thank you for clearing that up.
Clerk reads the five names who have been nominated.
Clerk appoints tellers—various Congressmen—four tellers.
Ted Yoho Nominated
Judge Loui Gomert Nominated
Daniel Webster nominated
Let the voting commence
This crying of his tell me he isn’t quite right in the head. Should he really be two heartbeats away from the nuclear button?
Gowdy uses bad weather excuse and won’t vote against Boehner.
Maryland elected a Republican governor in November. Now THAT was a miracle!
I like Gowdy, but that disappoints me he would vote for Johnny Boy. Why didn’t these Reps fly in yesterday or over the weekend instead of right before swearing in, votes, etc. on the 1st day of the 114th Congress.
Watch for some backenders voting against Boner after he was won the election.
Now we see who’s really who.
Jordans name mentioned!!!
So they HAD an excuse.
VOTE GOHMERT!!! CongressCritters, do the RIGHT thing for America, NOT your own political self-interest.
Each Congressmen being polled individually and must speak the name of whom they are voting.
Amash voted for Jordan!
Rogers is from eastern WA. Turned RINO several terms ago.
You’re a grown man Trey Gowdy, and you represent hundreds of thousands of people and you can’t make it to work on time to perform your Constitutional duties? I worked in construction in IL in the winter... I would have to anticipate delays in commuting to work caused by winter storms. I would have to leave an hour or more early to ensure I arrived on time. If the Interstate was closed, I would take the back roads, leaving even earlier. No work- no pay.
DISGUSTING CONDUCT and INEXCUSABLE.
