Conservative Group Launches Campaign To ‘Depose’ Boehner From Speakership’

Sure sounds like a great idea to me. Anyone else game for the idea? All it will take is 16 votes, and I know there are four already that are in the bag. Time to give the old boys a lesson and put a spring back in our step. Here we go:

Conservative Group Launches Campaign To ‘Depose’ Boehner From Speakership – Daily Caller

The backlash against Speaker of the House John Boehner’s removal of several conservative members of Congress from committees continued Wednesday, with one conservative group calling for Republicans to “depose” Boehner from his speakership.

American Majority Action (AMA) is launching a #FireBoehner campaign. If 16 members of the Republican Party abstain from voting for Boehner as speaker in January, he will be one vote shy of the 218 necessary to confirm his speakership.

“Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives,” said Ned Ryun, president and CEO of AMA. “Boehner has never won a negotiation [sic] battle with the White House or Senate – and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the conservative movement. It’s time for him to go.”

The recent anger stems in large part from the removal of Reps. David Schweikert, Justin Amash and Tim Huelskamp from their spots on committees. Boehner has said it was an issue of loyalty, Buzzfeed reported, but conservatives have labeled it a purge of more conservative and libertarian elements of the party.

“We only need 16 votes to get conservatives on the path to actually reducing our $16 trillion debt,” AMA Virginia Director Matt Robbins said. “If conservatives want to tackle our biggest challenges, we need competent leaders – and frankly – new leaders.”

Ron Meyer, press secretary for AMA, said that the group likes Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, the outgoing chairman of the conservative Republican Study Committee, to replace Boehner, though he noted that “there aren’t enough votes to elect someone new – yet.”

But removing him from the speakership, Myer said, is “doable for sure.”

A Boehner spokesman did not respond to request for comment.

    This sounds like a great idea to me. We only need twelve more votes!


    • bunkerville Says:

      I can’t believe we can’t manage to at least get 12


  4. TexasFred Says:

    Boner is a prime example of what’s wrong with the GOP, they consider the blubbering bastard to be a Conservative, and expect the RIGHT to go along with their faulty assessment…


    • bunkerville Says:

      Well said.


  5. ComradeMatrix (@ComradeMatrix) Says:

    And who would you like to see across the table from Obama and his minions. Taking Boehner might certainly be doable but who is capable AND can get the Speakership when Boehner is deposed? Agree with silverfiddle – seems there’s a lack of leadership throughout the ranks.


    • bunkerville Says:

      Hoe about Ryan, we need a pr bliz to explain chapter and verse what is our basis for our proposal. He is now well known

    Kick that big bawl baby out along with all the other GOP wishy washers that decided to side with Boner and remove the Tea Party from positions of power!


    • bunkerville Says:

      I’m on board as well.


  7. silverfiddle Says:

    Changing captains on the Titanic…


    • bunkerville Says:

      Well, at least we will get some small satisfaction.


  8. Conservatives on Fire Says:

    I don’t know how much good it would do to get rid of Boehner, but it sure couldn’t hurt. I’m for it!


    • bunkerville Says:

      There are at least 25 tea party members last I heard. We need someone who can argue our point of view.
