The names in bold are the ones I’d like to see named as Speaker of the House instead of John Boehner. He has to go, along with Mitch McConnell. It’s just too much now. They won the election in 2014 and now it’s time to do what they were elected to do. If they can’t do that, then put in someone as Speaker who can.

A couple of stories on this from Breitbart.

First one:

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that conservatives in the House heard “not one word” from House GOP leadership on compromises to make changes to the cromnibus in order to get conservatives to vote for it even though “we were willing to work with them to compromise” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
“There was no encouragement to conservatives. The Speaker and Majority Leader, these folks knew there’s money for abortion, money for the EPA to hurt states like Texas, Arizona. There’s just all kinds of money in there for things we don’t support. and, Sean, you and I know some of us had gone to our leadership and said, ‘look, we can do this very easily. Let’s do it together with conservatives. That’s the bulk of our conference, don’t make them take a wrong vote. Let’s fund everything for two months. Let us have a vote on defunding Obama’s amnesty, and we’ll even agree that the Senate can take it out if they take the hard vote to do that and let it go from there to the president.’ We were willing to work with them to compromise, and not one word, as you know, the calls went to the white house when in a time that the speaker needed votes he turned to somebody that he really identifies with, the president and liberal Democrats and got them to help him pass this vote” he stated.

Gohmert is one of my favorite congressmen – I hear him all the time on the FRC’s Washington Weekly podcast.

Second one:

Immediately following the House of Representatives’ passage of the so-called CR/omnibus spending bill, Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Steve King (R-IA) reacted to the vote.
Bachmann told host Sean Hannity a decision had been made months ago on amnesty, despite efforts to use this bill to take on President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty effort.

“I think the reason why they did it is because the political establishment made a decision months ago this they were going to get amnesty,” she said. “And they were going to pay for amnesty. The executive amnesty is what they didn’t like — President Obama doing it alone. But they wanted amnesty. Let’s not mince words. Both Republican and Democrats, the leadership, the establishment, wanted to have amnesty”

Later in the segment, Hannity turned his attention to King and asked if House Speaker John Boehner made a deal with Obama directly.

“Yes,” King replied. “I think no good ideas outside of that deal were going to be considered unless we could have succeeded on taking the rule down. And at that point we would have had a new ball game. And I think we had a chance, but we failed by a vote to take the rule down.”

Who knew that when we elected so many Republicans to the House and Senate that Boehner would actually be taking over as Democrat leader in the House from Nancy Pelosi? Maybe next time there we can pick a Republican Speaker of the House.

I’m not saying we shouldn’t elect Republicans, I’m saying that we need to primary Republicans who vote for garbage like this so that we get the right men and women for the job. We can start with the 67 we have and keep those, and find as many replacements as possible for the others.

 

One thought on “Lots of candidates for Boehner replacement in list of Cromnibus NO-votes”

  1. Gowdy. I think Gowdy would be a great one. I love watching him grill administration officials in committee hearings so I’d imagine that when you sat him across from the president in those meetings he could make Obama squirm like a worm on a hook.
