Rep. Huelskamp suggests Speaker Boehner retire gets standing ovation

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), a solid conservative from flyover country, was giving a speech and the line was, “Isn’t it high time we retire John Boehner’s biggest excuse, we only control one half of one third of the government,” was interrupted with a standing ovation. The interruption came just before the word “biggest”.


Take a hint Mr. Speaker. We don’t want a Speaker of the House who agrees with Barack Obama on immigration reform amnesty. We’re not interested in a Speaker who celebrates the US Chamber of Commerce tossing $50 million in the pot to defend liberal Republicans who are facing a primary challenge from conservatives.

Most of all Mr. Speaker, we’re not interested in a Speaker who caves in to Democrats on a continuing resolution that shuts down 13% of the government, promises a fight over the debt ceiling and then raises spending when that comes around.

Mr. Speaker, you’ve got a house in Florida, go move into it. We’re looking forward to forgetting you ever served in the Congress.

Oh, and we’re also interested in joining Rep. Huelskamp in welcoming Kansas new US Senator, Milton Wolf after he hands Kansas current Senator Pat Roberts – who incidentally doesn’t live in Kansas – his head in the primary. Please help retire Pat Roberts here.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Indeed. Too bad half the country doesn't understand that; then they wouldn't have been unjustly blamed for the shutdown.

Michael Becker, the "author" of this article is suggesting Boehner retire.  Huelskamp never said it.

He's not going to retire, Michael, and he'll continue as speaker.

Kansas doesn't want a necrophiliac for a Senator.  Roberts will be re-elected easily.
