If this feels like deja vu, it’s because Jonathan Strong of Breitbart reported the same thing more than two weeks ago. According to his and National Journal’s sources, there are now 40-50 Republicans in the House who are quietly committed to voting against Boehner in the next Speaker election in January — if he hasn’t already retired by then. That would deny him the majority he needs to take the gavel. Faced with the prospect of that humiliation, the thinking goes, he’ll quit before it ever comes to that. This story and Strong’s are the insurgents’ way of warning him to go away before he’s fired.

One new key detail: Cantor’s also on thin ice with tea partiers after orchestrating that embarrassing, and clearly fraudulent, voice vote on “doc fix” a few weeks ago. If he wants to succeed Boehner, he may have to appease the insurgents by replacing House whip Kevin McCarthy with a stalwart conservative as the new majority leader.

Almost all of Boners close buddies are bailing from the House this year. They know he is done and they are going to be pushed to the back of the bus. Boner is drunk crying dead man walking.

The question is who will he be replaced with ? Boehner 2.0 ?

That's quite a few right-thinking reps. Good.

Get rid of all 3: Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy. Boehner is a wimp who won't stand up to the WH, Cantor is scheduled to head a Soros/union event whose purpose is to diss Conservatives, and McCarthy is a tool.

The way the RINOS are going, I would guess Nancy Pelosi. The reason will be "Greater Bipartisanship".
