All Hail The New Democrat Speaker Of The House!

Remember my article yesterday about John Boehner’s “nuclear option”? Well, it seems he’s a little smarter than I thought. Today Boehner was elected to another term as House Speaker with Democrat votes, and none of them were recorded. All hail the new Democrat Speaker of the House!

Conservatives in the House had mounted a challenge to the Speaker’s re-election, and were successful in getting the 29 votes they needed to block Boehner’s next term, but suddenly that wasn’t enough.
Although Boehner never openly courted Democrat votes, enough Democrats failed to show up for the opening of the 114th Congress to ensure Boehner’s victory despite the 29 votes against him. Wasn’t that convenient?

Never-the-less, John Boehner will now go down in history as the first Speaker of the House elected by the opposing party. The marriage of the Republican and Democrat parties has been consummated, and it looks as though Republicans were the ones on the receiving end.

Why would Democrats go along with Boehner on this? Why wouldn’t they? Boehner is the best friend Obama has in the House GOP, and Democrats wanted to make sure the Obama/Boehner agenda wasn’t derailed by the election of a principled Conservative to serve as Speaker. No one had to go on record as voting for Boehner, but their absence from the chamber said everything Boehner needed to have said. Every single Democrat absence was a vote for John Boehner.

The vote has been made, and the results are in; Obama will have his way for the next two years and there is little we can do about it until 2016. Make a note of the names that cast votes for Boehner, and vote accordingly. My GOP Congressman voted for Boehner and has heard from me in no uncertain terms. The question we all have to ask ourselves now is – Are you a Republican, or a Conservative? You cannot be both. For me the answer is obvious.
