Group looking to oust Boehner targets members with ‘little to lose’

A conservative group that wants to depose Speaker of the House John Boehner from his post as the leader of the Republican Party in the House is targeting more junior members of the House who have “little to lose” in the way of committee chairmanships, and asking them not to vote for him in January.

The group, American Majority Action, has said Boehner is not conservative enough, and that the removal of several conservative members from their respective committees earlier this week was the final straw.

Boehner has said it was an issue of loyalty, but conservatives have labeled the removal a purge, saying that those members were removed because they were too conservative.

    Boehner with worthless. He’s exactly the type of rino who needs purged from the Republican party, and there are lots of them. I don’t vote for Republicans so that they’ll make deals with the socialists on the other side. I vote for them to stop the creeping socialism, and they fail me and the country repeatedly. I’ll go back to voting for third party candidates if conservatives can’t take back the Republican party.

    Why should real conservatives be loyal to those who are conservative in name only and continuously act against the interest of conservatives?

    To say that Boehner has been a disappointment is an insult to disappointments.

    I was at a PAC fundraiser several months ago and heard something I took to heart. Conservatives need to take back the country from the bottom up: township by township, county by county, state by state. Fill every office that becomes available from dog catcher to president. I took the advice and attended my township’s Republican caucus the other night and ended up getting nominated and voted in to be on the ballot next April for a minor elected position as a township trustee. If I’m elected, at least I’ll have the chance to see how the money is spent right here in my local community.

    It’s hardly the start of any sort of political career, but if I’m in there, that means that some democrat or clueless rino isn’t.

    The GOP has nothing to lose at this point. Regardless of the cause the media will blame the GOP for everything from the Fiscal Cliff to slow Christmas sales. They ought to bounce Boehner and appoint Newt Gingrish (as I gather you don’t have to be a congress critter to be the Speaker). Newt knows congress rules backwards and forwards, is smart, decisive and probably one of the few that can stand against Obama and Reid and look good. He would scare the hell out of them and even when the constant media attacks begin I think he’d actually come out looking better than the Dems that are intent on destroying your country.
