    yesterday:

    Partisan trust issues aside, the big battles ahead — from immigration to raising the federal debt ceiling — will once again test Boehner’s leadership team and put the spotlight on McCarthy’s whip operation as it tries to wrangle enough GOP votes to give House Republicans some leverage in those big fights.

    McCarthy sucks at his job.

        The Young Guns Program, formed by Co-Founders: Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), helps Republican candidates to build strong and winning campaigns through goals, benchmarks, and accountability. In 2010, 62 of more than 90 Young Guns candidates were elected to the US House of Representatives helping Republicans win the majority. Every Young Guns candidate plays a vital role in keeping our Republican team on offense and helps build a lasting and productive Republican Majority for the American people.

        During this cycle, NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) and Co-Founders Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), look to build upon the successes of 2010. Every operation aims to fulfill Chairman Sessions’ vision statement for 2012: “Make the Republican half of the House floor standing room only with the need for the Sergeant of Arms to bring in folding chairs in the aisles to accommodate our new membership.”

        too bad we have to put up with them....

        The average age for those young guns was about 45, if I remember correctly.
        Kind of old for being a "young gun" if you ask me.

          45 is considered adolescent.
