Dems Vow To Protect Boehner From Conservative Coup

 

 

 

” Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn’t count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker.

  And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress.

  A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.

  But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt.”

 

 

     Who exactly does this ***hole represent ? Not the republican party that’s for sure … not when his “opponents” promise to watch his six . The fact that Pelosi and co. would prefer to work with Boehner should tell you all you need to know about where that man’s loyalties lie … Read on at the Hill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Texas Republican Announces Challenge To Boehner For Speaker In New Congress

 

 

 

 

 

” Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) said Sunday that he will challenge John Boehner (R-Ohio) as Speaker in the new Congress.

“ I’m putting my name out there today to be another candidate for Speaker,” Gohmert said on “Fox and Friends.”

  Gohmert said that after “years of broken promises, it’s time for a change.”

  Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) on Saturday announced that he would not support Boehner for Speaker.

” This is not a personal attack against Mr. Boehner, however, the people desire and deserve a choice,” Yoho said in a Facebook post. “In November, they resoundingly rejected the status quo.”

“ Eventually, the goal is second, third, fourth round, we have enough people that say ‘you know what, it really is time for a change,’ ” Gohmert said Sunday. “’You deceived us when you went to Obama and Pelosi to get your votes for the cromnibus. You said you’d fight amnesty tooth an nail. You didn’t, you funded it.’ ” “

New Poll Shows Tepid GOP Support For Boehner In Role Of Speaker

 

 

 

” From the final Morning Jolt of the week…

Despite an Ominous New Poll, Speaker Boehner Isn’t Going Anywhere

  House Speaker John Boehner is not particularly popular with Republican voters.

  We now know just how unenthusiastic Republicans feel from a new poll conducted by Pat Caddell and EMC Research, commissioned by the People’s Poll, in an exclusive to the Morning Jolt/Campaign Spot.

  Nine percent of self-identified Republicans and self-described independents who say they lean closer to Republicans say they feel “strongly favorable” about Boehner, and another 34 percent say “somewhat favorable.” Another 23 percent say they’re “somewhat unfavorable,” and another 11 percent say strongly unfavorable. An entire 11 percent say they’ve never heard of John Boehner.

  Asked, “If it were up to you, would you elect John Boehner to continue as Speaker of the House or would you elect someone new?”, 11 percent of respondents said “definitely” Boehner, 15 percent said “probably,” 26 percent said “probably” someone new, and 34 percent said someone new, definitely.

Fire Boehner

 

 

” Are you sick and tired of Washington spending trillions of dollars we can’t afford? While Democrats are the driving force behind running up our national debt, growing the size of the federal government and wasting our money, all too often Republicans, led by Speaker John Boehner, are happy to go along for the ride. Under Speaker Boehner, the House has repeatedly voted to increase the debt ceiling – pushing us deeper into debt than ever before, voted to fund Obamacare – a disaster which continues to get worse, and just agreed to a 1500+ page bill (most didn’t read) that will cost $1.012 trillion in new federal spending for 2014. The American people are desperate for principled leadership in Washington, not “go-along-to-get-along” capitulation. Sign the petition now! Then contact your Representative and tell them you are ready for real leadership. Tell them to fire the Speaker! “
