QOTD: "Conservatives in the House of Representatives are considering blocking Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) from becoming Speaker of the House of Representatives. They need 29 conservatives to stand shoulder to shoulder to make that happen.

There are allegedly 25 of 29 ready to do it. Of course, last time they had the votes to block the Speaker and they all caved at the end. It would be more surprising if they hung together than if they caved. Caving is what conservatives in the House of Representatives often do.

...Conservatives in the House need to understand that if they want to be a force to be reckoned with, they need to use their veto out of the gate to block the Speaker.

29 of them, voting for someone other than Boehner, will do just that. And doing so will then give them leverage throughout the next Congress." --Erick Erickson
