    It is never a good idea to put the inmates in charge of the asylum IMO.

    The American people benefit from watching the Teap Creep Show up close and front, I think.

    Boehner resignation cuts U.S. government shutdown risk
    September 25, 2015 - The shock resignation of U.S. House Speaker John Boehner on Friday reduces the chances of a government shutdown next week, potentially removing one source of investor anxiety as Wall Street gears up for a week heavy with economic data and commentary by Federal Reserve policymakers.

    To waltky: I would not want to be hanging by my thumbs until the House elects a true conservative who is not a Democrat-lite:

    Daniel Webster is the so-called conservative candidate for Speaker of the House. Well, compared to Kevin McCarthy he is conservative. McCarthy gets a 45% or an F from ConservativeReview.com. Webster, on the other hand, gets a 63% or a D. So what does this D-grade conservative promises us if elected speaker?

    XXXXX

    Daniel Webster has zero chance of being elected Speaker. Try not to weep too much for him when he loses.

    Daniel Webster, "conservative" for speaker, excites base with talk of regularized processes

    Americans have a much bigger threat coming from the nest of traitors in the Senate than the next Speaker. There are simply too many RINO who would switch parties before they allow one conservative item get by them.

    I do not know how many RINO are among the 24 up for reelection next year, but conservative voters in those states would do well to identify them and deny them the nomination while there is time.


    REPUBLICANS

    Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire)
    Roy Blunt (Missouri)
    John Boozman (Arkansas)
    Richard Burr (North Carolina)
    Dan Coats (Indiana) retiring in 2016
    Mike Crapo (Idaho)
    Chuck Grassley (Iowa)
    John Hoeven (North Dakota)
    Johnny Isakson (Georgia)
    Ron Johnson (Wisconsin)
    Mark Kirk (Illinois)
    James Lankford (Oklahoma)
    Mike Lee (Utah)
    John McCain (Arizona)
    Jerry Moran (Kansas)
    Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
    Rand Paul (Kentucky)
    Rob Portman (Ohio)
    Marco Rubio (Florida) retiring in 2016
    Tim Scott (South Carolina)
    Richard Shelby (Alabama)
    John Thune (South Dakota)
    Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania)
    David Vitter (Louisiana)

    Clarification: There are a bunch of good ones up for reelection. Happily, Marco Rubio is retiring as far as I know. His departure is an opportunity to replace him with a senator who puts America, and Americans, ahead of the New World Order crowd’s agenda.

    NOTE: Never forget the most famous party-jumper in recent times —— the late Jumping Jim Jeffords (1934 - 2014). Interestingly, Jumping Jim did not seek reelection in 2006 after his betrayal. As bad as he was look at who succeeded Jeffords. I DO NOT MEAN THE GUY IN THE WHITE COAT —— I MEAN THE GUY ON THE TABLE:
