Dems Vow To Protect Boehner From Conservative Coup

by The Hill
March 6, 2015

A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.

But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt.

“I’d probably vote for Boehner [because] who the hell is going to replace him? [Ted] Yoho?” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) said Wednesday, referencing the Florida Tea Party Republican who’s fought Boehner on a host of bipartisan compromise bills.

    The Democrat’s would of course defend their own!

  • Ray Martucci says:

    Boehner needs to get a spine and stop being the demcrats puppet. He can’t make up his own mind.

  • Pete Ferretti says:

    I can see why Dems. want Boehner to stay— he is a RINO, votes Demo., and actually kisses Pelosi on the cheek every chance he gets.

  • DocJimmy says:

    It has been +/- 47 days since the new Republican Majority Congress has been in place and yet, Obama, Holder, devout muslims in key positions in the government et al are still in office. Do I hear a Giant “WTF” is going on”? To start with, obama’s amnesty for all the illegal aliens is wrong on so many levels of good judgement and practicality, it’s also Constitutionally illegal. Boner (Boehner) and McConnell need to “Take a Hike” so that real patriot Republicans and Conservatives can take care of business.

      What were you expecting?
      Not only are they still in office, but their nominees continue to be approved by the Republican House. Go figure.

        Yea, and the stupid Republicans continue to elect McConnell and Boehner to lead them. Therein lies the problem. Too many RINOs in both the House and Senate.

    Boehner needs to be fired from his Speaker-ship.

      Just look at that smirk on Boehner’s fact after stabbing everyone in the back who voted for the Republicans to stop Obama’s illegal activities. Nothing will change until they rid themselves of these two clowns who are really Democrats who ran as Republicans.

        Pelosi needs to go and the rest of the liberals

  • Greg137 says:

    Will some body anybody please notify the Ohio Republican governor, and the Ohio Republican party and tell them that boehner is not a REAL Republican and that he is serving illegally? the Problem is that too many people are too lazy to support the conservative cause, or they have allowed the Liberal Left to redefine their values…
