trotsky: Rwa2play: JerseyTim: Earlier, the House Republicans mocked incoming Democrats with the following:
[s3-ec.buzzfed.com image 538x743]
[s3-ec.buzzfed.com image 537x692]
Then they go ahead and reelect the guy in charge that they all hated. Delicious.

That's some hardcore projection going on there.

Did they actually do this? Jesus, what a bunch of spoiled little tweeny girls. No wonder nothing gets done.

Let's not be a bunch of dicks, and go off half-cocked at every headline that makes some sort of juvenile reference to the man's name. He's third in line for the Presidency, which is hard to achieve. It's a great distance to rise, and they'll probably erect monuments to him in Ohio.

And while we're at it, sure, the man drinks. Who doesn't? But I don't want to spend the next 2 years talking about Boehner vomiting White Russians. Let's have a bit of respect.

Shaggy_C: Meh. Speaker of the House is a largely ceremonial position these days. Senate Minority leader, now there's the real power in the US Federal government. No bill can even get a vote without getting the green light from the minority party first.


I'm thinking that second in the succession line to POTUS (right behind VP) is just a bit more important than a "ceremonial" position. Being Speaker is more than just a title.

FTFA: "So has former Secretary of State Colin Powell (you do not have to be a member of the House to be elected speaker)."

I never knew that the Speaker of the House could be somebody who was NOT elected to said house. That makes absolutely no sense at all since that could put somebody who was not elected by the general citizenry in charge of the very representatives who WERE elected by them, plus puts that same person very high up in the POTUS succession line (see above).

And Lord Reagan spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pinhead. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Boehner of the GOP towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) was the present vote. Other side of Houston from where Ron Paul's district was. Could still be the new Ron Paul though.


The big problem with the House GOP members coming together is that there are several "new Ron Pauls".

Republicans behave like battered spouses. They always seem to run back to the only form of love that they know, and then keep making excuses for why it's okay.

Fine. That's your choice. You can have your party. I'm done with it.

No more votes for ANY Republican.

I left after "read my lips, no new taxes" became a broken promise. Yeah, I've still voted for the republican candidate for Pres, but I won't do that and hold my nose any longer.

Grungehamster: Anyone seen a full roll call of who abstained from voting or voted for someone other than Pelosi or Boehner?


There's a Slate piece from David Weigel that goes over it. Looks like on the R side, Justin Amash, Paul Broun, John Bridenstine, Louie Gohmert, Steve Pearce, Ted Yoho, Tom Massie, Tim Huelskamp, and Walter Jones all broke ranks. Mick Mulvaney and Raul Pearce abstained. They voted for a variety of people, some of them not in the house, but Eric Cantor and Justin Amash both got at least 2 votes.

Jim Cooper and John Barrow are both Blue Dogs, neither voted for Pelosi.

He has told me things only to have them come true. So I told him not to tell me what happened next but then this is the news that came. He laughed, but I told him that it was a lie. So I thought I had him until he showed me links and I had to apologize. I told him will never ask him to tell me nothing again until checking Fark first-thing every day. Then I found out he is a Farker!

Conversely, McMillan stated he was still running for president on his own The Rent Is Too Damn High platform, and that Supreme would be McMillan's running mate.[32]

I hope the Republicans not just going off half-cocked by making Boehner their speaker again.  I hope they stiffen their spines and rise to the occasion. But we didn't really think Boehner would just give up and limp home, would he, even if the teabaggers won't stand up for him? As the head of the Republicans in Congress, can't go soft here. He needs to work really hard--on through the the whole term if necessary--and keep hammering at it. I mean, when the next debt limit debate comes in a couple of weeks, I don't care if the Republicans in Congress have to pitch a tent right there on the Congressional floor and spend the whole night there, waking up with wood floors as their beds, and filibustering this thing if they have to. Yeah, it's true that Fartbama has threatened to veto their efforts and yeah, the President's veto pen is mighty, but by standing firm Boehner can get Fartbongo to prick up his ears and listen and know that the Republicans are serious. But it's not enough to for the speaker to just erect procedural barriers--he needs to steel his resolve and hit those wimpy, chubby Democrats hard, like a semi truck, until they just give up and go home with their heads drooped. Don't dicker with them, just fire a budgetary rocket at 'em. I'm not saying he should get too cocky, but this is no time to spare the rod--if he does, taxpayers will get the shaft once again, so he needs to show a rock-hard commitment, bone up on the budget issues, and drive it home. I know that the Republicans in Congress don't have great opinion pole favorability numbers right now, but one way to get it up is for the Republicans to give American families a full salute and throw each of them a bone--daddy, mommy, grandparents, and all the kids. If they do that one morning, wouldn't you have to think that when it's in the newspaper the next morning, glory will be spread to all the Republicans?!

Something to think about!
