Small minded traitor.

This is getting out of hand. If I’m not mistaken, the minority chose committee members not the majority as a sign of mutual respect n

I do dislike Adam Schiff

This ain't kevin. This is MTG. Let's not kid ourselves about who is running this next congress.

How does anyone listen to that stupid ignorant hick? Fucking ridiculous.

Payback for banning my little Margie from committees. This is not unexpected.

I don't know r5, but every Democrat who gives a speech should mention how she is the one running this ridiculous Congress. Every time.

by Anonymousreply 7November 21, 2022 1:01 AM

Constantly refer to her as the Real Speaker. Every time.

McCarthy warned he would remove the lawmakers in January, after Democratic leadership stripped Republican lawmakers Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.) from committee posts for invoking political violence.

This is payback

Won’t miss Omar or Schiff. Fuck the both.

Add AOC to the banned list.

R10: Die, you right wing bitch. And it's cute McCarthy thinks he'll be Speaker, because he doesn't have the votes...

Jim Clyburn just told CNN that this is childish

Gee ya think R13?

R12 he has the votes, that’s why he’s doing what he can to throw MAGA republicans a bone.

There is no opposition to his leadership because the majority is so slim that no one wants the shit sandwich that will be his Speakership.

R15: At least 4 members of the GOP caucus have said they're not voting for him. He doesn't have the numbers to be Speaker right now....

There is a HIT LIST

He’s trying to “earn” at least a couple of those four votes.

by Anonymousreply 18November 21, 2022 5:20 PM

The entire House votes to remove someone from their committee assignments. It's possible, though maybe not likely, that there will be some Republican members who will realize this is a bad precedent to set. There was good reason to remove MTG. Removing Schiff, or even Swalwell, would just be spiteful.

Such an angry and bitter man.

by Anonymousreply 20November 21, 2022 5:45 PM

If the Democrats were smart they’d find 3 or 4 moderate Republicans. Ask them which one of you bitches wants to be speaker. All you have to do is pledge to step on all of Kev and Marge’s hopes and dreams and we’ll deliver every last dem vote on a golden platter.

Shouldn't these maroons realize this type of scorch-the-earth tactic is what cost them getting more seats this time around? When will these people learn from the experience? So tired of the do-nothing congress we get stuck with every cycle.

In an interview with the New York Times, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) left no doubt that she expects to share power with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) should Republicans take control of the House in November and, a big if, he is elected speaker.

In a deep dive into the controversial Georgia Republican's rapid rise as the face of the Republican Party's extreme right wing, Greene expressed her belief that she represents the future of the party and that McCarthy, if he wants to survive, needs to allow her to do as she wants, when she wants to.

As the Times' Robert Draper wrote, "In Greene’s view, a Speaker McCarthy would have little choice but to adopt Greene’s 'a lot more aggressive' approach toward punishing Biden and his fellow Democrats for what she sees as their policy derelictions and for conducting a 'witch hunt' against former President Trump."

With that in mind, Taylor Greene told Draper in what he called, "a flat, unemotional voice," that, “I think that to be the best speaker of the House and to please the base, he’s going to give me a lot of power and a lot of leeway.”
