We have to be careful about calls to replace Boehner until we can be sure that he won't be replaced by someone worse. I am thinking about Paul Ryan. He was not only supportive of Plan B, but I suspect his neoconservative puppet masters talked Boehner into that idiotic idea. If Paul RINO got in as Speaker, there is no telling what he would do. Betrayal has no limits. He was after all the one who drafted the budget bill last year which the Tea Party tore to pieces. Wherever there is more socialist spending waiting to be passed, he is there to vote for it.

Paul Ryan has marginalized himself with his vote for Plan B to a point of no return. Boehner must go for the following reasons (A) He hates Conservatives and has kicked many off committee leaderships. (B) He and Cantor use Pelosi-like thug tactics to threaten our duly elected House representatives to get their way. (C) Boehner also conducts all negotiations in secret closed door sessions with no House committee review (D) he has a track record which includes nothing but caving since he has been speaker.

Therefore in the eyes of many conservatives............ there is no "worse".

And all this talk of he and Cantor being the "young turks" of the Republican party has at this point evaporated. These are men, like Boehner, willing to sacrifice the basic economic stability of their country for personal gain. Besides all of this, some realize that Ryan's plan was never the best out there and that the Mack-Penny plan far surpassed his. Anyway, one seriously bad move in this political climate is enough, and I believe that Paul has just made his.

As members prepare for the 113th Congress, several have been dissatisfied with Speaker Boehner's conduct: he's been accused of booting more conservative members off of major committees, and the abject failure that is "Plan B" seems to have been the final straw for some. Breitbart News reports that there's a plan circulating some offices intended to facilitate the election of a new Speaker of the House come January.

Several conservative House Republican members are contemplating a plan to unseat Speaker John Boehner from his position on January 3, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Staffers have compiled...
