Calls to Fire Speaker of the House John Boehner Grow Louder As GOP Unrest Increases

Published December 07, 2012


House Speaker John Boehner is facing mounting criticism from the conservative wing of the party for allegedly punishing certain members over their voting record, with some suggesting his speakership could be at risk.

The odds right now of Boehner losing his post are quite low, barring the sudden entry of a challenger who galvanizes the rest of the caucus. But two developments have raised hackles among conservative members and advocacy groups, prompting grumbling about Boehner's position.

They're disappointed, for one, that he offered to put increased revenue on the table as part of fiscal crisis talks. But they leveled pointed criticism at Boehner after he removed several key conservatives from plum committee assignments. Those who were removed, including Reps. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., and Justin Amash, R-Mich., claimed the reshuffling was dealt as punishment for voting against the leadership's wishes.

I am happy to see these traitors being braced more and more by the public.

Here We Go Again With Monopoly Logic

"Whoever wins the majority of all votes cast would win the post."

The implication is that Boehner will win because the only alternative would be to allow Nancy Pelosi to become speaker.

This lessor of the two evils approach has been used to justify evil throughout modern American politics. And it produces the same insane results.

Nah it just the shouting match before the real battle

One side shouts at the other to make them aware of their power a tactic to avoid the real conflict. The calm before the storm.
I think its about sending louder and louder messages so the future installed political puppets will not be as willing to sell their souls for a Rothschild false debt curency.


My thought was

Noehner will win because his crony's will lie, cheat, bribe, blackmail, and kill to keep that position, and they refuse to vet anyone else within the GOP to replace him.. and if they did, it would be someone who would do what Boaehner did anyways

So we continue to fight , from the inside perferably.

Should the Liberty

candidates abstain to break up the party monopolies?
