Chaffetz Running for Speaker?

by RACHAEL BADE and JOHN BRESNAHAN | Politico  |  published on October 3, 2015

House Oversightand Government Affairs Chairman Jason Chaffetz is planning to run for House speaker, taking on Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy in what appears to be a long-shot bid to lead House Republicans, according to multiple sources.

The Utah Republican, first elected to Congress in 2008, is launching a campaign less than a week before the Oct. 8 leadership elections for the House GOP Conference. The date for a floor vote to pick the next speaker has not been set yet, but Thursday’s conference vote will name the party’s top contender for the post.

McCarthy (R-Calif.) is the overwhelming favorite to win, and it’s unclear at this time how many votes Chaffetz can garner.

    We better hope and pray someone other than McCarthy gets this…he is 2x as bad as Boehner; hence, we all know what that means, fund, fund, fund whatever the queer wants.

    • Joseph Le Bard

      You are stupid

      • Ron

        Wonder why it is that liberals just have to resort to name calling. Yep, I fought a war in Vietnam, a Ranger combat recon, all for America, just so you liberals did not have to go to school and learn anything except to listen to other liberals.

        • Miyako

          Good point. or…..they ran to Socialist Canada….or…Europe. (Air Force 62-66)

    • Miyako

      Steve King. Iowa.

  • Ron

    I am for Chaffetz.

  • harrydweeks

    Anyone but McCarthy.

  • ItsJo

    Love this idea of Chaffetz……Don’t need Another Rino-like McCarthy-Boehner’s Pal.

  • Radman414

    I also heard that Louie Goehmert (sp.?) might be getting into the race for Speaker, too. He would be my second choice after Trey Gowdy…who may not want the job. (He does want to finish up his work on the Benghazi Committee, but there are rumors he might not run for re-election in 2016.) NO to McCarthy!

    • Buzz

      That is a painful rumor but can understand why? He has really done more than any other Rep or Senator ..

  • Nina

    I love Trey, I really wanted to see Louie Gohmert in that spot, he would be outrageous. But Bonehead set it up so there would be a rush job. From what I have seen of Jason Chaffetz though I would also be happy. McCarthy will be awful. He has already said several times that the pubs are using Bengazi politically against Killary. What the hell is that about going against your party? I don’t believe him anyway, not with everything’s that’s come out of this investigation, and the other thing is to me I think in my opinion he’s saying this to go after the dems votes for the speakership. We already know most of the pubs r freakin wimps no cant think for themselves!!!!

    The little dickhead McHenry wants Mark Meadows PUNISHED by having someone run against him next election cycle!! I don’t know if y’all saw that. Don’t remember where it was now. He used to be my Rep in NC then we got redisticted. Well now they want to turn it around on this little gay piece shit and have someone run against him!!! They’re calling for calls to your Reps. I have called Mark Meadows office several times to thank him if standing up for us.

    • Jeanne DeSilver

      Let your Representatives know; No to McCarthy http://www.house.gov/

    • Miyako

      Cheffetz was Against Congressman Mark Meadows Also……Don’t Forget That’! I Think he’s Another ‘Boehner’….Waiting To Come Out’? A Panderer For Future Mexican And Latina Voters. STEVE KING….look up his Voting History At numbersusa.com. He’s A TRUE American For All America’! Not a Phony RINO.

  • KDC

    Gowdy doesn’t want it. Too bad for us. Chaffetz is pretty gutsy, though. See ya Boehner!

  • skrunyan

    Go Representative Chaffetz! McCarthy is Boehner 2.0. McCarthy is the same-o-same-o.

  • Larry

    MILK TOAST, we finally get rid of the biggest piece of **** and we get McCarthy another wieener, Where have all the conservative leaders gone? Trey is the man. Get with it. Shut down this worthless government and all the money grubbing politicians.

    • Buzz

      They are there, it is just that Boehner and Pelosi are evil and as evil as they come; before he resigned McCarthy had the in road..

    • Miyako

      Check Out Steve Kings (Iowa)..Record On Illegal Immigration. He should be Considered. illegal aliens cost Americas Citizens over 220 Billion Every Year And More”!

  • paulrph1

    Why elect a Boner like. Chaffetz would be perfect.

  • freedomoutpost ken

    Chaffetz would be an excellent choice over another RINO like McCarthy. Chaffetz, Jordan or Gowdy would all be better choices for a more Constitutional Republic.

    • Buzz

      What do we know about Meadows?

      • freedomoutpost ken

        That Boehner tried to destroy him for stirring up the pot to get Boehner out. That alone, is enough to get my vote for Speaker. (If I had one!)

  • Joseph Le Bard

    Trey ‘s busy with benghize he’s dedicated himself an will succeed in bringing hitlery an fukuobama to full prosecution , Chaffetz is Trey’s pitbull unleased , He may go off half cocked but I have seen him take down some big fish in the demoncratice party McCarthy is a Rino just resently he tryed to upset the benghize investigation with a statement leading to political agenda.

    • freedomoutpost ken

      McCarthy is nothing but a Boehner clone. Unless we stop his appointment we will have nothing the same old caving in to the liberal progressives.

      • Buzz

        Yes and all that know this piece of ???? say he is 2x worse and closer to the freak in chief than even Boehner,…I wonder just how close? Did you see, Muslim boy invited to W House…wonder just what he will learn from the queer.

        • freedomoutpost ken

          Obama will probably give him a medal for being a good Muslim.

    • Miyako

      Chaffetz……No……………He Has Said he wants a way for Illegal aliens To Become Citizens. Fines,English,Etc. I say You don’t reward Law Breakers’!

      • Joseph Le Bard

        I agree, I was thinking that Gowdy would have influence Chaffetz the lesser of the evil there all Rino’s an we have no say what so ever this is a hell of a democracy huh.Also we need to put islam in check http://petition2congress/outlawislam.com

        • Miyako

          Thanks Joe. We Need to erase all RINO’S In The GOP. I Like you……fed Up with The Leadership of the GOP in The House And The Senate. Time To Erase Senator Mitch McConnell.

  • US Army Retired

    Trey Gowdy would be perfect and best for the GOP but Jason Chaffetz would work quite well to. Most anybody but McCarthy.

    • The Redhawk

      TREY for CIC!!!! Imagine Trey debating ANY of the Progtessive Maggots on Issues… He;d make Custer;s last stand look like a Picnic!!! Meanwhile Mc Carthy has proven to be anther AIR HEAD unable to Control his BIG MOUTH… I have a feeling that the Establishmnet GOP is bent on BLOWING ANOTHER ONE!!!
      Semper Fi Army!!!

          • Buzz

            Why has not the Sargent at Arms in the Senate, as he sees Treason, Sedition taking shape in the Senate and on the Senate floor at that? Same with the Provost Marshall, that is what they are for…not to let this crap continue.

          • The Redhawk

            IF the Sargent at Arms would have acted for te ast 7 yers as you say.. THERE BE VERY FEW PROGRESSIVE lIBERAL FASCISTS LEFT IN CONGRESS!.. Pelosi.. Cummings, Jackson-Lee Conyers etc etc etc…

      • Buzz

        They will, most have mush for brains, if even that. You can bet that Pelosi is behind this and with Boehner, made a deal before he ever resigned.

    • paulyz

      Gowdy would also be Excellent as Attorney General under President Trump, Carson or Cruz.

      A.B.M. (Anybody but McCarthy).

      • Buzz

        : ) yeah…

    • Joseph Le Bard

      Thank you for your dedication to the free world.

    • 7papa7

      McCarthy aka Boehner II. We need a serious change of direction not the same ole garbage we have had. I would like Gowdy or Gohmert personally, Both would be excellent choices but with a house who is stuck on status quo, that probably won’t happen until the good ole boys club is broken up and fired being replaced with real conservatives.

      • Buzz

        We also have Steve King, Jeff Sessions.

        • 7papa7

          I like Sessions but he is a Senator not a congressman and I seriously doubt he would want to move down to the house. Overall I King is OK but every now and then he seems to fall off the deep end but would be a big improvement over McCarthy. I am familiar with Gowdy and Gohmert and very much like what I see. There definitely some other good folks who would do an excellent job.

        • Miyako

          You Are Correct about Steve King. he is Number ONE’! in Protecting America From the Illegal Invasion Of Mexican Nationals To America.
