Lindsey Graham predicted this:
The G.O.P. has gone from being a disciplined party of limited government to a party of anti-government protest to, now, a party of performative anarchy, antisemitism, homophobia and pro-Putin fascist nationalism.
Schadenfreude! May their pain be ongoing!One question (among many) is why there isn't a woman mentioned in this line-up for Speaker; why isn’t Stephanik in that mix?P.S. Rep Cheney called this circus months ago stating McCarthy would never be elected to Speaker. I would guess that Cheney and Pelosi are having multiple laughs about this miserable bunch of idiots.
The think this shows is they do not march in step and support someone who's policy they don't agree with. The other party was very disciplined and followed the hard nose speaker regardless of what she proposed. You can't see it before you sign it was the stupidest thing for a seemingly educated adults to do and they make decisions controlling our lives.
Angry Staffer 🌻First time no Speaker was elected since 1923! Congratulations, @HouseGOP, on being not only a national embarrassment, but a historic one.
I think it is good for the country to not have elected officials just line up and march in step. Madam Botox was a very strong leader of lemmings and chances are her style will not be repeated.Maybe this will continue for two years and congress will be in total gridlock. This will be a good day for the American people and perhaps it will show the Great American experiment has reached it's limit and should be abandoned for true government by and for the people instead of by the elite for the elite.
Skud... what specific policies does any elected GOP house member support?Seriously... policies they support. Not what they oppose from the Dems, but what policies they will enact to improve the lives of Americans and move our economy forward.Can you name a few? Because if so, you'll be light years ahead of most conservatives I talk to.
I was watching Jake Tapper yesterday. He was talking with a former Republican Congresswoman who stated that the folks holding this up and not voting for McCarthy are not holding it up out of some policy issues--they want him to guarantee that they will be on such and such committee, be chair of such and such committee, etc. This has nothing to do with their principals and everything to do with their typical self-aggrandisement.
skud: "I think it is good for the country to not have elected officials just line up and march in step. Madam Botox was a very strong leader of lemmings and chances are her style will not be repeated."Oooh, skud. Your jealousy is showing. Madam Speaker is already acknowledged as one of THE MOST consequential politicians this country had the honor to elect. No matter how many catty names you attach to her, they won't detract from her successes. You're jealous that the current Trumpublicans can't hold the proverbial candle to her skills and smarts.skud: "This will be a good day for the American people and perhaps it will show the Great American experiment has reached it's limit and should be abandoned for true government by and for the people instead of by the elite for the elite."And we can lay the blame for this shameful circus at the feet of DJT and his lackeys. Lindsey Graham was correct when he said that if the GOP nominates and run Trump, he will destroy the party and the party will deserve it.We are watching in real time the Trumpian legacy of corruption, chaos, and incompetence.And no Democrat was involved. The Trumpublicans are destroying themselves quite nicely.
We now know skud supports the repub con agenda. Non government. Chaos. Anarchy.
You’ve got that BACKWARDS AGAIN
