In January 2011, the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives. We joyously watched as Nancy Pelosi was vanquished from the Speaker’s chair and we believed we had won part of the victory we needed to win.
Now, fourteen months later, we are sorely disappointed. John Boehner has been the most ineffective speaker in modern memory. Not only is a conservative agenda not being advanced in the House, he is surrendering on every fight he has with the Democrats.
We need a solution. We need someone who can be our leader in the House of Representatives, who will stand up to the establishment and do what needs to be done.
Who could this leader be?
Michelle Bachmann has returned to Congress and is now running for reelection in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District. We need her not only in Congress, but we need her in the leadership of Congress.
We need her as the Speaker of the House. We need her to replace John Boehner.
First, there needs to be an immediate disclaimer. I have had no communication with Michele Bachmann, her office or her campaign. If John Boehner and the establishment GOP believe she is a threat to his leadership, the establishment will fall on her to make certain she is not reelected.
That still does not change the fact we need to replace Boehner with someone who has two specific qualities. First, they must have the courage to fight and lead and second they must be a conservative. These are two qualities John Boehner is sorely lacking.
Last year, the House of Representatives approved more spending than they did when Nancy Pelosi and the Party of Treason controlled the House. Did anyone support Republicans taking over so they could spend more money?
John Boehner was given the greatest mandate in modern history and he blew it. In February, the government set a record for a budget deficit. The United States was $229 billion in the hole just for February. Just remember 2007, where the deficit was $161 billion for the whole year.
Boehner is incapable of leading. If he were honest with himself he would admit that and allow someone else to take over. But he is a careerist politician who sees himself being Speaker for the next twenty years.
We must have change in Washington. The RINO establishment must be changed.
Michele Bachmann would be a great choice to be the next Speaker of the House and we should encourage her to consider running!
I love it--this is a great idea; and, she has the "balls" to get the job done!
Yes, I agree Boehner has to go.
Thank Jared I believe as well John Boehner needs to be replace and Michele Bachmann would be the perfect choice or Marsha Blackburn from Tennesse she is Very Conservative
Who is Jared?
I press the wrong button--no reply.
Not only that, John Boehner is the one who led the removal of Newt from the Speakership. Boehner is a pansy who can't
lead. also, he is part of the Establishment Republicans that need to be removed from office. Lets get people in who will get the job done instead of wasting our time and our money.
Be careful how you use the word "quitter".
Sarah quit the governorship of Alaska in order to save herself and the state of Alaska from the huge monetary load of defending herself from Democrat lawsuits.
Bachmann was smart enough to see that she would never have enough money to win against Romney.
We should support Bachmann's re-election campaign with donations from all over the US.
She is not a quitter. She walked away to await another day. I agree let';s support her.
Just using the word "quitter" is suspect in my book -- it's a reminder of the liberal attack against Palin. Perhaps the left would prefer the Al Gore never-quit-approach of screaming incoherently when he refused to accept the results of the contest.
JUDSON, I SUPPORT THIS GREAT IDEA
Absolutely,,,I have been calling for Michele Bachmann for Speaker since before she left the presidential race!! Thanks Judson for telling all of us what should be self evident,,a new solid committed conservative and unafraid of the Demorats' (or just doesn't have a desire to be "friends" with them).. We all should provide Michele with a dollar or 2 to help make sure she gets re-elected to the House!!
Boehner leads the list but all but maybe 5 in both house and senate need to be replaced. Do nothing. Kowtow to the "System". If Congress had a backbone, Obama would not be a problem; he would have been impeached years ago!
