new speaker same as the old speakerrush limbaugh was asking the other day how the budget could have been worse if the dems were in charge of the House, and his answer was, "it couldn't"I know tj wanted Ryan to run for the presidency, but there's real sense or outrage at Ryan among conservatives (actual conservatives, not rockefeller republicans claiming to be conservatives)

dr carson for speaker?there's a story that some GOP congressman tried to get Dr Carson to run for speaker in 2014 when they were trying to get rid of Boehner.QuoteAlthough every speaker of the House so far has been a member of the House, the Constitution actually doesn?t require this; in theory, there is no rule preventing an outsider such as Carson from holding the position.this story has been confirmed by at least one of the congressmen who approachd Dr CarsonDr Carson did not pursue it as he was planning to seek the presidency

QuoteOriginally posted by: Traden4AlphaQuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperthe Corrupting Influence of Money in PoliticsSeems like chicken feed compared to all the money Trump gets from Mid East ventures and tenants.you missed the ironyJohn McCain co-authored McCain-Feingold and he used to rail against "the corrupting influence of money in politics"I recall one debate on the senate floor, where mitch mcconnell asked mccain to name names. If there was corruption, which senatos were corrupt?McCain of course failed to answer.
