I gotta ask, @Right_in_Virginia .  Is your hard-on for a Swamp-loving Establishment hack like Kevin McCarthy because of Trump supporting him?  Or is it because Mike Pence supports him?

Should a man in your position be talking about a "hard on"?

"Ask him if he apologized to me in private...."

That makes it sound like Gaetz is letting his personal hurt feelings affect his decision on the vote for Speaker, which isn't a good look for any representative, regardless of how true it may be.

I mean, wasn't Gaetz out there just recently publicly calling McCarthy the biggest alligator in the swamp?  Not really sure what interpersonal pleasantries he expected after that.

I'm not the one here blindly backing the Mike Pence-supporting Swamp-loving GOP Establishment hack.

A Significant Majority of Republican Voters Agree With the GOP Rebels

STACEY LENNOX  |  1:36 PM ON JANUARY 04, 2023




The Republican establishment that still believes they can manage voters’ expectations to maintain the status quo may want to do a reality check. The base had high expectations in 2022, and the elections did not meet those expectations. Many voters suspect that at least some establishment Republicans put a greater emphasis on ensuring that candidates tied to President Trump did not win than on winning back the Senate and a more significant majority in the House.

Then, the GOP members they did manage to elect voted to keep the wildly unpopular Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) as Senate Republican Leader. Then, with a RealClearPolitics average favorability rating of -33%, McConnell turned around and betrayed Republican voters by helping Democrats pass a $1.7 trillion Omnibus package along with 17 of his colleagues.

No one should be surprised that Republican voters are fed up. They organized the Tea Party and elected candidates who promised fiscal responsibility. When that did not work, they elected a reality television star as president. Yet the incumbents in Washington still don’t learn.  .  .  .

Well what do you know?  These 21 "terrorists" as one Establishment champion calls them, actually do represent a majority of Republican voters.  Go figure.

Kevin McCarthy on Trump and Jan 6:

"The President bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters."

Ever notice some folks  have a 100.000000% correlation with whatever Trump, says, thinks, or  breathes?  No matter how contradictory....

Amazing isn't it???.  :cool:

Neither am I.

I simply do not support ten percent of a Caucus ------ any Caucus ------ holding the nation hostage.  In the end these clowns are going to hurt our agenda along with themselves.  It's time for them to close down their tent and let the ninety percent get to work.

Of course not  -------  Just as supporters of the President didn't support Ted Cruz calling Jan 6  a “violent terrorist attack".  McCarthy apologized to the President and Cruz apologized to the base.  The choice is to accept the apology and move on or continue to obsess over it two years later like a premenstrual teenager.

McCarthy sweetens his offer to House GOP rebels

Alayna Treene, author of Axios Sneak Peek

4 January, 2023

House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy offered fresh concessions on Wednesday evening in an attempt to keep his speakership bid alive, multiple GOP sources told Axios.

Between the lines: It's unclear whether the 20 House GOP rebels will accept the offer, although one GOP member called the plan "an amazing deal they'd be dumb to turn down."

McCarthy's proposal, according to sources familiar with the plan:

One member motion to vacate, instead of five.
More House Freedom Caucus members on the House Rules Committee.
Promises to hold votes on controversial term limit and border security bills.
What's next: The House resumes at noon eastern time on Thursday.

CNN reported details of the concessions earlier on Wednesday evening.

Spot on...  I have a feeling McCarthy is going to be his own worst enemy once he is handed the gavel.

This might work out just right.  This will give enough time for Jim Jordon to jump start the judical grilling of the Biden Criminal Operation.
Then rightfully hand him the Speakership he deserved in the first place.

The article doesn't support the headline.  The article shows that a majority of voters were dissatisfied with the midterms, and are unhappy about the performance of the RNC.  It says nothing about the current speakership battle, much less that a majority of Republican voters are in favor of this holdout.
