Here’s how you and conservatives in Congress can rid ourselves and our country of the disaster that is Speaker John Boehner:
Daniel Horowitz has a pretty good strategy to get rid of John Boehner: Tomorrow (Tuesday January 6), a group of just 29 conservatives will have perhaps its only opportunity to change the course of history and drive the direction of the country.
With YOUR help, America can get rid of sniveling leathery orange-faced John Boehner’s power and his cow-towing relationship with Obama!
Today and tonight, spend all the time you can spare spreading the word and asking ALL your friends on Social Media to
tell their Congressman to deny reelection to John Boehner. Follow these steps:
2. If your Congressman is Democrat spend your time sending these steps to everyone you can!
If your Congressman is Republican click on their name and scroll to the bottom of their website to get their phone number and email.
3. Call your Congressmen and tell them: “I live in your district, I am an active voter and volunteer with the Republican Party. I will be watching your vote for Speaker, Tuesday. If you utter the words ‘John Boehner’ and offer no other alternative to the man who has bent over backwards to please Obama, I will make the next two years miserable for you. I will do everything in my power to stop any donations or any support from others in this district even if it means going door to door to reveal who you really are. If you put up another alternative to John Boehner, I will become your #1 fan and do everything in my power to make sure my neighbors know what a hero you are and to reach into their pockets to support you.”
4. Email a similar statement to your Congressmen.
5. Spend 20+ minutes each day the next 1 1/2 days to pass this information on to your neighbors and social media friends.
NOTE: If you have a twitter account use hashtag #FireBoehner
Despite misinformation some Republican members and incoming freshmen have given constituents, the selection of John Boehner for Speaker, unlike the election of the other party leaders, has not been cemented. And in fact, on Tuesday, if every Republican who claims to be frustrated and even appalled by Boehner’s behavior would vote for any other name, they can deny him reelection as Speaker.
Unlike last month’s vote, which served to nominate Boehner in conference as the GOP pick for Speaker, the vote on the floor of the House will not be a voice vote by acclimation, nor will it be a secret ballot. Each of the 435 members is called to stand before a packed chamber and the millions of viewers on television to proclaim a choice for Speaker. No member is bound to vote for the nominee of his party; each member is free to vote for any individual qualified to serve as Speaker. Indeed, on 17 occasions since 1913, individual members have registered votes for “third choices.”
The operative point here is that it is not sufficient to garner a plurality of the votes; the winner must secure a majority of the total number of votes cast. Consequently, given that there are 247 Republican members in the new Congress, if 29 members vote for someone other than Boehner.
