Laura Ingraham: ´Well-placed
conservative voice´ says Paul
Ryan in line to replace Boehner

The Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:CarrotFarmer87, 12/21/2012 11:19:58 PM

After the failed effort to get the fiscal cliff “Plan B” passed this week, some powerful conservatives on Capitol Hill are reportedly pushing for Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan to replace embattled House Speaker John Boehner. On Friday night’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” fill-in host Laura Ingraham said her sources indicate a coup may already be underway in Congress. “I had a well-placed conservative voice today on the Hill email me and said he’s beginning to hear rumblings — I already gave something away, ‘he’ — he’s beginning to hear of a move to replace the speaker of the House,”

Comments:
I know it is hearsay at this point, Ryan could get more done as an ideological leader, whereas Boehner is more of a political leader IMO.

Boehner is reminding me of Trent Lott. Remember the great compromise in the Senate when there was a tie between GOP and Dems? The GOP had the V.P., tie-breaking chair, yet Trent Lott "Magnanimously" tells the Dems that all committee chairmanships will be shared by a Dem and Rep with equal power. Yeah, right. Then along comes a RINO senator who switched parties and suddenly the GOP was in the minority. Same magnanimous offer made by the Dems? Yeah, right.

Boehner definitely needs to be replaced...
[This requires backbone, folks...]

Not sure Ryan is the answer...
[If Rand Paul were in the House... we need a sharp, articulate conservative... who will stand up to Dems and MSM...]

And cut spending! NO compromises!!

We see coaches fired, generals relieved and politicians voted out not necessarily because they were bad but because they weren’t good enough for the task at hand.

John Boehner simply isn’t good enough to counter Obama and Reid. Time to go John!

We got our butts handed to us in November and it’s now time to get hardnosed and in their faces.

Wonderful. We need a strong leader who can CHANGE the embarrassing management style of GOP House leadership. Change that gets results. I pray Ryan has it in him to be bold and ignore the ineffective RINOs. They had their turn.

The operative word is articulation. Who can speak past the media and connect directly to the American people? Who can educate conservatism on an E-News/ MTV level? Boenhner had the focus of the country today and blew an opportunity to educate. He said nothing.

There are alot of rising stars out there but who is the complete package?

Great! Articulate communicator! Just read Gingrich´s letter to the GOP & wanted to drown myself. He suggests mirroring the DNC.

If Ryan had been the leader, he could explain that taxing millionaires 100% doesn´t fix anything. It´s the spending budget, stupid!

There´s no question that there´s rumblings in the House abut throwing Boehner overboard but I´m not a big fan of Ryan taking his place.While economics and budget matters are important,I´d rather see an across the board conservative who can explain it all.

It´s all wishful thinking anyway,Boehner´s not going anywhere because the lobbyists,including Trent Lott love him and will use bullying tactics to stop an overthrow.

Of course, he will come out and say he is not interested. Nothing will happen, Boehner will remain at the trough with the rest of the herd, and the GOP will slowly fade into oblivion. It didn´t have to be this way but somewhere along the line the GOP allowed themselves to be castrated.

Paul Ryan. Now that´s what I´m talkin´ about!
Everyone knows that Obama would MUCH rather deal with Boehner than Ryan. That fact alone should be reason enough to make the switch.
Time to go big, or go home, Pubbies. In the world desperately in need of bright, bold political colors, Boehner is an earnest but soft pastel.

This position does not require anyone from congress....it could be an outsider. I like Paul Ryan but I think someone like Newt Gringrich as speaker and Allen West as Majority Leader and Herman Cain as Majority Whip. This would be the match from hell against the dems.

Is there any way to resurrect George Patton? We need someone who isn´t afraid of what the Washington media thinks and will do the right thing--engage these libtards in battle!

No more milquetoast deal makers!

President Reagan knew he could count on "silent majority" of the popular opinion of the adults at the time who had seen the horrors of the Great Depression and WW II to drawn on for wisdom.

That demographic no longer exists. The "low information" voters don´t know enough of how all this works, and Ryan could fit the bill if he could only get an audience.

He would get that audience engaging the entrenched people there now, because the media loves controversy. The problem as Rush says, is that these people are really "high information" when it comes to pop culture and their focus on the meaningless.

Engage, Mr. Ryan, maximum warp!

Ryan would be my choice. Here we have a man who is on tape standing up to Obama face to face. The closest any other GOP member came to that was Joe Wilson yelling "you lie" (quite correctly) and apologizing for it right away. Ryan proved himself by holding his ground in the budget talks and by the sacrifices he made in his decision to actually run against Obama. That´s a lot more than the usual symbolism shown by our ´leaders´.Ryan believes what he says and says what he believes. I thought he was spectacular on the stump and agree with the other poster that the Karl Rove/Bill Kristol wannabes in the campaign did everything they could to put a stop to that.

Boehner should step down. He failed. He set up failure a year ago by agreeing to the fiscal cliff parameters. Ryan or someone tough and conservative, a true believer and articulator of principles, is needed.

Our bench isn´t very deep is it. We do need a strong fiscal guy. The great power of the House is its control over the purse. It has no need to ´compromise´ with insane fiscal policies. We need someone who can control taxes and spending and the guts to do so. I don´t see that person in the House ranks. But there are lots who fit the bill outside the House. Heck I think even The Donald could do it - although I am not suggesting him - it´s just that there are a number of heavy weight CEO types who could straighten out the economy - which, let´s face it - is the role of the House, and in two years they have simply dropped the ball. Boehner needs to go. We don´t need someone who can deal with BHO we need someone who can deal with making the House function using it´s majority.

To answer # 37´s question -- the "pubbies"´ state election was rampant with voter fraud because it was a swing state. For starters, there were reports that busloads of Somalis were brought to polls and were unable to read the ballots.

The election was rigged in swing states. Voter turnout was higher or equal to voter registration in too many precincts. Romney received NO voters in too many precincts.

Ryan would be better than Boehner, just as Palin was far better than McCain.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy gestures, specifically his referral Russia as a regional earlier this week. Krauthammer blamed it on the inexperienced advisers the president has surrounded himself with in his second term and his own worldview. “This points to the fact that Obama has surrounded himself in this term, in this kind of second-term arrogance, with midgets,” Krauthammer said. “There is nobody in the high command who had the stature of Bob Gates, for example, or even a Hillary Clinton

At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
