Iago Eric Cantor plotting a coup against John Boehner, revolution is still fomenting!
“In tough times, it doesn’t mean you play timid, it means to play bold, and I don’t see that. And you know what? Time’s up,” Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), who vowed to vote against Boehner, told The Hill in an interview. “I’m tired of the status quo of what’s going on in Washington, D.C. America’s tired, America’s angry and they’re scared, because they don’t have leaders in Washington, D.C.”
That’s quite a list of grievances you got there, Sparky.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) was more succinct: “I’ll give him every bit as much support as I did last time.”
Gohmert in 2013 was one of a dozen Republicans who didn’t support Boehner for Speaker. Ten of them will return to the next Congress and have a vote on Boehner’s future.
Oh, NOES! He’s lost Screwie Louie?!!1!
The article goes on to describe, well, sleeper cells in the Wingnuttian caucus. For safety sake, they don’t know about each other or how many there are.
In fact, [Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.)] acknowledged he didn’t even know who the members of the other groups were, though he said that was by design to avoid being targeted by the Speaker and his allies. At some point, however, these Boehner foes will have to step forward and “show they will stick together on a vote,” Jones said. Then, one of them can be offered up as a candidate… “You’ve got to have 20 to 25 committed people that are willing to cut their wrist,” Jones explained, “and if you’re not willing to cut your wrist, you’re not really committed.”
“And then we will play Legos and have graham crackers and a nap,” he did not conclude.
