House Democrats Delay Leadership Elections … Could Nancy Pelosi Be Out?

NOW IF THE NEW YORK TIMES WANTS TO WRITE ABOUT DISARRAY, THEY MIGHT LOOK TO THE LEFT AND THE DEMOCRATS

The House Democrats delayed their leadership elections until after Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 30. Democrats are scrambling after the 2016 elections that saw them lose the White House and continue to be in the minority in the House and Senate. If the New York Times wants to write about a party in disarray, they might want to focus on the Democrats. It was supposed to be a glorious night and an all but sure thing, with a Hillary win, recapturing the Senate and picking up 10 to 20 House seats. None of it happened. Now Democrats are scrambling. They are looking for a new DNC chairperson and possibly new leadership in the House. Note to NY Times, that would be called disarray.

Nancy Pelosi’s hold on the House Democratic Caucus is being tested.

Fresh off an Election Day embarrassment, and facing an uprising from her rank-and-file members, Pelosi grudgingly agreed to postpone leadership elections scheduled for Thursday. Democrats will now vote for their leaders on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

The delay is designed to give Democrats time to figure out why they failed to make bigger gains against a Republican ticket led by Donald Trump. Instead of picking up the 10 to 20 seats they had once hoped — or even the majority they secretly dreamed about — Democrats have netted only a half-dozen seats so far, with some races still to be called.

This poor showing has led to a serious round of finger-pointing among Democrats. The culprits range from Hillary Clinton to FBI Director James Comey to their own leadership’s failure to craft an economic message that would appeal to rural white voters.

Pelosi doesn’t appear to be in any serious danger of being ousted. For starters, no one has come forward yet to challenge her, though Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) is cautiously weighing a bid for minority leader.

Ted Cruz Responds to Boehner’s Comments … ‘If You Want a President Like John Boehner, Donald Trump’s Your Man’ (VIDEO)

I WANT ALL REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES AND INDEPENDENTS TO REALLY LISTEN TO CRUZ’S COMMENTS BELOW …

In response to former establishment Republican Speaker of the House Boehner’s comments calling Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh,” Cruz responded in kind with some pretty thought provoking comments of his own. If you liked John Boehner as Speaker, if you want a John Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy as president, then Donald Trump is your guy. So who exactly is the political insider if they are Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy? Hmm?

“When John Boehner calls me ‘Lucifer,’ he’s not directing that at me, he’s directing that at you.”

Cruz, campaigning in Fort Wayne, Indiana ahead of the state’s May 3 primary, responded by saying Boehner was letting his “inner Trump come out” with his remarks. He attempted to turn the criticism into a slam on Trump.

“John Boehner in his remarks described Donald Trump as his texting and golfing buddy,” Cruz said. “So if you want someone that’s a texting and golfing buddy, if you’re happy with John Boehner as speaker of the House and you want a president like John Boehner, Donald Trump is your man.”

 

Former Establishment Republican Speaker John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh’ & a ‘Miserable Son of a Bitch’

JOHN BOEHNER IS THE EPITOME OF THE COUNTRY CLUB ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN WHO WE COULDN’T WAIT TO LEAVE OFFICE …

Hey Boehner, have another drink and a cry. Former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner called Sen. Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ and further went on to say Cruz was a ‘miserable son of a bitch’. Hmm, coming from the likes of Boehner, Cruz should wear these words with a badge of honor. Sorry America and especially my fellow Conservatives, I find Boehner and his crying pathetic self exactly what is wrong with the GOP. Boehner is the epitome of the country club establishment Republican who forgot along time ago what the GOP party platform stood for and that government was of, by and for the people.

I find it quite interesting that the poster child who Conservatives danced with glee when Boehner left office and is the face of the establishment GOP is actually “golfing and texting buddies” with Donald Trump. Flashback, the Gateway Pundit reported one last cry from Boehner. That should give many pause for concern. Many have stated that they are supporting Trump because he is a political outsider, really? Who do you think was buying politician’s influence? When Conservatives were battling Pelosi, Reid and Obama, Trump was donating to them. So Boehner, who openly hated the Conservative movement, condemns Cruz and loves Trump. WAKE THE HELL UP CONSERVATIVES, ADMIT YOU MADE A MISTAKE AND DO THE RIGHT THING.

So, Mr. Speaker, how do you really feel?

John Boehner, the famously blunt ex-House speaker, left no doubt he’s not a fan of fellow Republican Ted Cruz, leaping off the sidelines of the presidential race Wednesday night to unleash a stunning verbal lashing of the Texas senator, reportedly calling him “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”

The longtime Ohio powerhouse had not been very outspoken on the race since retiring last year, but he held little back when asked about the Texas senator and underdog GOP presidential candidate during a forum at Stanford University.

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life,” he said, according to The Stanford Daily.

He reportedly said he’s played golf with front-runner Donald Trump, describing them as “texting buddies,” and said his relationship with Ohio Gov. John Kasich “requires more effort” but they’re friends “and I love him.” He also said he’d vote for Trump in a general election – but not Cruz.

And yet another GOP insider and Republican who should be ashamed of himself, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) stated, “I fully agree with John Boehner, and maybe it gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.” King accused Cruz of having “perpetrated a fraud and a hoax” with his push in 2013 to defund ObamaCare, which eventually led a government shutdown. Really, it was a fraud and hoax to try and to defund Obamacare? This was the very reason why Republicans were voted in majorities in the House and the Senate to do just that. Defunding and abolishing Obamacare is what the GOP ran on in 2010, 2012 and 2014 to do. And because the establishment Republicans did not do what they claimed they were going to do, in other words, lied to the very people who voted them into office, they establishment GOP finds itself with Donald Trump as their presumptive presidential nominee.

Hmm, it seems like all do not agree with Boehner and King, some Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord. Good grief.

Former Speaker & the Face of Failed Republican Establishment Politics John Boehner Endorses John Kasich Ahead of GOP Ohio Primary

TALK ABOUT THE KISS OF POLITICAL DEATH, THE MOST WORTHLESS ENDORSEMENT EVER …

Former Republican Speaker of the House and all-around gutless wonder John Boehner has endorsed Gov. John Kasich ahead of this Tuesday’s Ohio winner take all primary. Who would want that endorsement, talk about the kiss of death. The crying man, John Boehner, is the face of failed Republican establishment politics. It is the failure of Boehner and his GOP establishment cronies in DC that gave rise the the Donald Trump wave. Why would anyone want his endorsement? At an event on Saturday in Butler County, OH to honor former Speaker John Boehner he stated, “I have no regrets about how I retired or when I retired. Every day I’m grateful I’m not there.” No former speaker, not half as grateful and thankful that we are that you are not there!

Republicans in Butler County honored former Speaker John Boehner three days before residents across Ohio’s 8th District will vote on his replacement in Congress.

But on Saturday, Boehner was more interested in talking about the presidential race.

One day before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is scheduled to speak in West Chester, Boehner endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president.

In fact, the former speaker told a crowded ballroom in the same township he already voted for Kasich.

“He’s my friend,” said Boehner.

It was Boehner’s first public appearance in the area since he retired last year.
