House Speaker Mike Johnson Is Hit With The Same Problems That Vexed Kevin McCarthy

By most accounts, Speaker Mike Johnson inherited a House Republican majority in disarray after the sudden ouster of his predecessor last month.

But as Johnson, R-La., tries to rebuild that slim majority, he’s fast running into the same hard-right factions and divisions that Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., was unable to tame. That's disrupting the party's agenda, shelving priorities and leaving gnawing questions about any leader’s ability to govern.

Good. Let him squirm and fail. May he be devoured by his own.

That’s a shame.

I think the fact that the average Republican is not willing or able to purge the radical lunatics from their own party is a shining example of their overall fragility and cowardice. They would rather let the GOP go down in flames than stand up to MAGA.

Thoughts and prayers.

I have a relative that is a devout Republican despite being highly intelligent. She's brainwashed and will never see the problem.

Now they are going to go after the January 6th committee, and that is why the lunatics demanded the release the edited video. They want to change the conversation before the jury is selected for Trump's trial. The DOJ really fucked up by not indicting some of these criminals like MTG and her ilk, so now they are posting ridiculous demands the new speaker enact a new J6 committee and jail Liz Cheney, Nance Pelosi, Adam Shiff etc.

My prediction is that his is all coming, or course, from Trump and so if the new speaker does not form this committee he will be ousted because they are already unhappy about the clean CR.

Republicans can't govern, chapter 2,437,689.

Haven't all Republicans crawled into Putin's enormous anal cavity by now?

R9 Sure, but was it illegal-illegal?
