This is what will likely happen. They don't have to actually vote McCarthy, all they have to do is not vote at all.

The Democrats know McCarthy is a fellow swamp creature and will make sure someone like Jim Jordan does not become Speaker.



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."
-- Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Related and further to not standing together, Mitch is appearing with Biden today in Kentucky to brag about money (pork) he got into the “infrastructure” bill

I think it's hilarious that McCarthy has been moving into the speakers office for the last couple days. Wink

I have to ask myself why? McCarthy wanted to censure Trump! Again I believe Trump inner circle is dirty and giving him bad advise.

I think he wants Jordan to chair the Judiciary where he can be more effective

McCarthy knows he's being watched

Cordially, I invite McCarthy to eat a bag of dicks, and that goes for the rest of the slimy RINOS as well.

I'm glad this is happening because McCarthy deserves it and I don't give a damn that the leftists are enjoying the show.

If that’s the case why not Biggs or Scalise. McCarthy is a swamp creature.

As for Donald Trump supporting McCarty despite everything that's happened- this might be considered a savvy move by Trump. He knows that McCarthy will get the speakership, and Donald Trump is planning on being POTUS in two years. Trump can say "I did you a favor," when, in reality, he did nothing for McCarthy.

McCarthy should get one of his Lackey’s to nominate Donald Trump to be speaker of the house. Get a couple more to vote for Trump and I promise you 20 Dems would switch votes to McCarthy to avoid that possibility.

Hasn’t helped. McCarthy losing 4th vote right now, looking like by more than third vote. They aren’t listening to Trump.

So, what exactly do the holdouts want from McCarthy?

Not taking a side, just need to get up to speed. Confused

OK What is happening with all the baggage and lurid stories with Gaetz. Has that been taken care of? Anybody know? Not asking about the stories just the outcome. Thanks

As much as I despise McCarthy, there are only possible outcomes, and I'm sure the holdouts don't want Hakeem Jeffries to be the Speaker. And, anyone else being nominated has zero chance. So, whatever it is they're trying to pull, they had better hurry and finish it up, because they have a country's business to tend to. These pukes took control of the House what, nearly 2 months ago? And they waited until now faking being unable to iron out anything? All fucking grandstanding. Roll Eyes

I was listening briefly to Levin last night on my way to my parents home and learned that Boebert and some others took millions from McCarthy for their election campaigns. And now, they're pretending like they're so righteous. Fuck all of them. Mad
