The New York Republican is not mincing words to the shocking announcement of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) stepping down as Speaker of The House in October.
He said that the Weeper of the House gave Republicans everything. They can't pass laws when the Democrats block them. And knowing you can't get everything you want, the insurgency refuses to concede.
The insurgency pissed Boehner off. He gave them the finger. On his way out, he said behind closed doors "Fuck all of ya. I'm out! Good luck on getting your agenda accomplished with Obama!"
Basically the departure of the Weeper is a good/bad thing. For my community, a really bad thing. Boehner, despite his blubbering and immature outburst is really popular in the Dayton and Cincinnati metro area. His departure left a seat open for an insurgent or Democrat to take. It's unlikely a Democrat could win a politically Republican district. The 8th U.S. Congressional District for Ohio is +14 Republican.
The good is Republicans can finally push their extremist agenda and eventually be uprooted out of power.
|New blood is bad blood. Already controversy within leadership. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA, Majority Whip) had once worked with former Klan leader David Duke. The potential Speaker, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA, Majority Leader) will face obstruction from not only Democrats but the insurgency. Current House Speaker, Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) bouncing out in October.|
We can confirm that the civil war within the party gotten even uglier.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) went off on the insurgency. “I think it signals the crazies have taken over the party, taken over to the party that you can remove a speaker of the House who’s second in line to be president, a constitutional officer in the middle of his term with no allegations of impropriety, a person who’s honest and doing his job. This has never happened before in our country," King said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash on Friday. "He could have stayed on.”
Many of Boehner's allies have long complained about things not getting done because of a handful of insurgents who refuse to compromise.
|House Weeper John Boehner (R-OH) once called Rep. Peter King (R-NY) a "shit head".|
He will face challenges from the insurgency. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and a handful insurgents vow to disrupt the new speaker if Obamacare isn't repealed or Planned Parenthood defunded.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is shaking her head. She was once a Speaker of the House.
Pelosi managed to get things done despite having the insurgency oppose her. She would be sent to the minority after the Republicans recaptured the House.
President Barack Obama has also spoke out to the news. He said that the party's internal struggles are the reasons to why government isn't working. Obama praised Boehner as a patriot.
