Because of the numbers of Democratic voters flooding over our borders and because of other factors, like voter corruption and what another Democratic president would do, if the Republican party doesn’t win in 2016, they will probably never win the presidency again. The Establishment doesn’t understand that they have to change, not just Conservatives, or they won’t win in 2016 but, instead, some have gone to war with their base and are willing to betray them to Democrats.
They don’t get it!
If Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) doesn’t agree to run for and get the job of Speaker of the House, the Establishment sees no alternative but to go to Democrats for a new Speaker. Picking a candidate Conservatives like is so out of the question that they will choose Democrats over them.
More than half the Republican Party membership wants a non-establishment Republican to become the presidential candidate and still the party can’t see this discontent goes far beyond right-wing “loons” as they describe them.
The Centrists and Liberal Republicans are angry at the way do-nothing Speaker Boehner was treated, blaming the House Freedom Caucus which has been bullied, threatened and punished by Boehner and his cohorts.
“I don’t see a Plan B” if Ryan refuses the job, said RINO Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.).
“If it becomes clear that no other Republican can assemble 218 GOP votes, King added, “In that case, we would have to consider having a coalition Speaker.”
King is the one who said Boehner’s exit “means the crazies have taken over.” It’s ironic because that’s what the left always says about him.
“It’s a very simple question of math,” said Liberal Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), who first floated the idea of Republicans and Democrats joining together on a Speaker candidate last week.
“If there are not 218 Republican votes on the House floor, then by necessity the Democrats will have a say in who the next Speaker will be,” he said. “I still think it’s a possibility.”
“Ninety-nine percent of the time that’s something we don’t want — it’s not good,” King said of working with Democrats to elect a Speaker. “On the other hand, we can’t go on forever without a Speaker.”
How do they think this will affect the party members who already don’t like them and want to vote for Donald Trump, who is not a Conservative, over any of them? Trump and Carson will do what they say and will tell the truth.
“It’ll never happen,” Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), vice chairman of the Democratic Caucus, said after McCarthy’s announcement.
Democrats are staying out of the controversy, ever hopeful that the Republican Centrists and Liberals make a mad dash to their door.
“Hopefully the Republicans will come to terms as to who their recommendation will be for Speaker,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said coyly last Friday. “But that’s really up to them.”
One problem with Ryan as Speaker is he is for amnesty without first closing the borders. In fact, Luis Gutierrez, who continuously betrays his adopted country in favor of open borders, is enthralled with the idea of him becoming Speaker.
There is a lot of pressure on Ryan to take the job and Conservatives don’t necessarily want someone who doesn’t want the job.
“The top two positions are from Blue states,” Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) told The Hill recently, referring to Boehner’s Ohio and McCarthy’s California. “It’s time we had a red-state Republican at the top. That would be helpful.”
It would help their image with half of the Republican voters too but that’s obviously not a concern for them even as they see their candidates’ poll numbers sink into oblivion.
Boehner is willing to stay until a replacement is chosen.
“If John is willing to stay … that’s fine with me,” King said. “He’d be unshackled in many ways.”
Dent agreed, quipping that Boehner’s promise to remain indefinitely could come back to haunt not only the Speaker who’s trying to flee town, but also those who pushed him out.
“Boehner could be here for awhile. … If I were him, I wouldn’t make any plans to hit the links any time soon,” Dent said.
“The irony of the whole situation is this: The people who wanted to take John Boehner down are now getting exactly what they didn’t want: John Boehner.”
No, that’s NOT the irony Dent. The irony is that you still don’t understand that you stand for nothing and at least half the Republican voters know it.
