  •  Speaker Boehner (7+ / 0-)

    I truly believe Boehner will not be re-elected Speaker and there will be a fight on this.  Cantor, although not on the Tea Party list, has the best chance of winning but I can also see that the Teabaggers will want to elect someone from their group as Speaker, splitting the Republicon Party.  Can you see Michelle Bachmann as Speaker?  With her there we'll have more laughs per day than we can handle but we'll be at a dead stop on everything until the 2014 elections and with the baggers behind her, she'll bring down our financial recovery and throw us into another recession.  

    We have to reclaim back the majority and we have to start IMMEDIATELY on this.  Target all 61 members of the Tea Party PLUS all other Republicon members of Congress.  If the DCCC won't find viable candidates and financially support them, then we have to do this.

    •  I say to also Target those R's who might not want (2+ / 0-)

      to stay in the Republican Party and hopefully have enough of 'em to have the Democrats take over.

    •  Cantor is the kinda (3+ / 0-)

      douchebag that will promise the tea-baggers anything to get power in the House.

      Get out the long knives!

      (As much as I want stability, it's high time these c-suckers turn on each other.

      Most of all, if Boehner goes down, he'll have served 2 years as Speaker in one of the worst performances ever as a Speaker. His job was to make America better. The route he took, obstruction to make Obama a one time POTUS... he failed at that too!)

      What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness, Anger, discontent and drooping hopes... Life is too strong for you-- It takes life to love Life

    •  That dagger Cantor and Ryan have raised up high (0+ / 0-)

      behind Boehner's back might have something to do with it, right?

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      doesn't have enough members to vote in the Speaker.  That's not saying they won't try, but the Republicans are well aware that putting Tea Party candidates in front of a camera can result in disaster for their party.
      And it won't be Bachmann. Whoever it is has to be able to raise money, and she turns the money boys off with her bomb throwing. She couldn't even get a rich benefactor like Santorum and Newt did for the primaries.

        I saw it the other night when Boner was have a very bad night on twitter.

        While many minority groups are the target for discrimination, few face this hostility without the support and acceptance of their family as do many glbt youth.

          Mr. "I'm so wonky, I can't tell you the details" in front of a camera 3 times a week or more.
          There are reasons why Ryan fell off the map  in the last weeks of the election. He can't defend his own policies (if that's what you want to call them).
