    Rep. Gohmert Nominates Newt Gingrich Over John Boehner for House Speaker

    (CNSNews.com) – Conservative House member Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) nominated former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) to replace current Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a closed-door meeting of House Republicans on Wednesday.

    Gohmert reportedly felt it was time to halt "business as usual" in Congress. His nomination of Gingrich did not receive a second and Boehner was reelected.

    House Republicans held a closed-door meeting at the Capitol on Wednesday to elect their leaders for the upcoming Congress in January. Gohmert nominated Gingrich – who led House Republicans during the Clinton presidency – to serve as Speaker, even though Gingrich is no longer in Congress.

    Technically, a nominee does not have to be a member of Congress to serve as Speaker. However, a non-member has never held the post.

    Asked about the nomination, a Gohmert spokesman told CNSNews.com that Rep. Gohmert felt the country could not “proceed with business as usual” and so nominated Gingrich.

    No surprise here that there was no second on this nomination being well documented how the GOP enjoys its boot on the necks of the majority of the House members. The coward of DC must stay in power. They have statists like former House leader Nasty Pelosi's example to learn about this from. And of course the Marxist at the top who generates pleasure from the same behavior on the American people's neck.

    I like all of McCain's supposed outrage, he is the one that told us while he was running against him, that we had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency. I guess that meant unless you are an ambassador or US serviceman.

    We democrats prefer Boehner.


    I'm surprised that someone else isn't getting nominated, though. Not Gingrich, but someone like Ryan or Cantor. Or Mike Rogers, although I personally think that Obama should nominate Rogers to be Secretary of Defense, and nominate John Kerry to be Secretary of State, and save himself the battle over Susan Rice.


    If Rogers' district still includes Lansing, it's a house seat the dems can take back

    Oh, so all the fuss about Bigbird and he won't even be offered a cabinet position? What about Sandra Fluke, what about the Aflac duck?

    Yes, Ive noticed Boehner has got to be the best gift Democrats could possibly have ever asked for in a republican "leader". Especially at this time. Wouldnt surprise me if they partnered with the GOP in keeping the rest of the House members silent in the vote to replace him. Similar in how they partnered with both the GOP and the media in trashing all the conservatives in the primaries. It appears that the GOP lives to partner with the Dems.

    I think by "we" he meant the inside the beltway dinosaurs like himself.

    Us backwoods former Klan members in Livingston County like Rogers and even if he left as our Representative, he won with 86% of the vote in the last election. Outside of the Lansing area, most of the people in his district actually have jobs so are not naive enough to vote in a Democratic.
