Taylor Greene: McCarthy Doesn’t Have Support to be Speaker

The assumption has always been that when Republicans retake Congress, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (D-CA) will be installed as the speaker.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) says not so fast.

Several members of the GOP House have been hung out to dry, in her eyes, and this could hurt McCarthy’s chances of getting the gavel.

He Didn’t Protect Us

McCarthy is well-liked within the House, so I am not sure who Taylor Greene has in mind for running against him, but she does have a point.

McCarthy’s time as the Minority Leader has not been without problems.

Taylor Greene and Rep. Gosar (R-AZ) have been stripped of their committee assignments with McCarthy in leadership.

Rep. Boebert (R-CO) is now facing censure and possible loss of committee assignment over a story she told supporters during the holiday break that took a shot at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

There is also the consideration that numerous Democrats have made remarks that also should have resulted in censure, but McCarthy was never able to get enough support for that to happen.

However, the biggest knock against McCarthy would be that he was unable to keep the party united in the House to defeat the infrastructure bill.

With a handful of Democrats having voted “no” on the bill, the legislation would have failed had McCarthy been able to keep Republicans united, but 13 of them voted in favor of the bill, giving Biden a big win.

Taylor Greene stated, “He doesn’t have the votes that are there, because there’s many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats.

“The American people aren’t going to have it.”

She added, “Number one, everyone saw me get stripped of committees as a brand new member of Congress, robbing my district of the ability to have representation working on committees.

“There was no action taken. As a matter of fact, our leader did nothing to defend me, did nothing to stop it.

“Then we saw today Paul Gosar censured, and then we saw him lose a committee, and this is another failure.”

Again, I am not really sure who would step up to challenge McCarthy, but the right person could give him a run for his money.

Republicans also have to be careful about mounting a challenge against McCarthy and have this issue decided before a new Speaker is elected, as even a small ripple could give Democrats the opening they need.

This is something we have to keep our eyes on as the election cycle gets closer to see if McCarthy can rally everyone behind him and put this small bubble of descent down.

I would guess much of that will ride on what happens to Rep. Boebert once the House comes back into session.

    1. McCarthy would have to be republican before he got my vote. I do really like him but I will never vote for a demorat or for a RINO again.

      1. I like McCarthy a lot, but I can never vote for him as he is a Democrat. If he really was serious about being Speaker, he may think about changing from a Dem to a Republican, or an Independent. They he would get my votes and probably a lot of others? We just have to get rid of Joe Biden and Harris and Pelosi and Schumer and Schiff. There are probably a lot of Democrats who are worthy of a vote. They need to speak up and shine their Lights and let all of us Know what they think and how they think and not run with the Democrat Bigwigs in a crowd. I am sorry that Boebert has apologized to a Muslim. If it were the other way around, I am sure that Ilhan Omar would have not done that for Boebert. The Muslims do not live in a Democracy that I am aware of. they continue to disrupt the Congress with their ideas that they are Special People and they treat the Rest of America like they better than the AVERAGE PERSON. BEING A MUSLIM YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT SET OF RULES AND YOU HATE ALL OF AMERICA.

        1. Audrey Jane Spaulding made a statement about other Dems. All of the Dems currently in office accross America need to be replaced immediately without hesitation. They all committed Treason amongst other issues. The RINOS need replacing as well. We all need to install Conservatives in order to save America.

    2. Boebert shouldn’t have to apologize for anything concerning Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib is pure trash. I would care less if I picked up the paper and read Rashida Tlaib got a good stroke or heart attack, or got run over by a drunk or drugged illegal alien driver.

  1. What kind of payoff is he getting from the
    Democrats I think someone high up is
    Getting paid off to make these kind of
    Decisions

  2. I back MTG for sure! At least she shows back bone, the speaker not so much. He reminds me of Paul Ryan the biggest RINO of all. The democrats protect their own,Stalwall, Omar, for a few

  3. Thing could get very interesting in the House next year, maybe it is time for someone else to lead the GOP in the House only time will tell

  4. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, MCCARTHY IS A REPUBLICAN, AND IS MINORITY SPEAKER! HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A REPUBLICN, BUT FRANKLY DOES NOTHING! I TOTALLY AGREE WITH HER. MCCARTHY has done nothing to support Republicans in the House. Like MCCOLLUM, IT IS TIME FOR HIMS TO GO! There is plenty of others who will actually LISTEN TO PEOPLE IN THE PARTY! A concerted effort to replace these RINOS would send a clear message to the party that leaders MUST LEAD, FOLLOW, OR GET OUT OF THE WAY! Of the 13 RINOS who voted for the bill, their fate is in the hands of the voters who put them there! The Republican party has NO WAY FOR US TO COMMUNICATE DIRECTLY WITH THEM! MCDANIEL is a FAKE! She came out and said the GOP would file suit against BIDEN’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL MANDATES! Months later, NOTHING FILED AND HER OFFICE WILL NOT UPDATE REPUBLICANS WHO REQUEST A FOLLOW UP! Things have changed, and if the leadership of the GOP doesn’t take heed, REPLACE THEM ALL! IF WE HAD ANY LEADERSHIP THEY WOULD LET US DECERTIFY THE RINOS ON THE JAN 6TH WITCH HUNT!

  5. I personally feel that Tulsi Gabbard should switch parties and join as a Conservative. She is on track with DJT and all of the highlighted GOP like Jordan, Nunes, De Santes, and many others Like Kristy Noem. They are all very good Conservatives.
