Rep. Mick Mulvaney , one of the 28 Republicans who publicly supports replacing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner with a Republican alternative, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Boehner does not have enough support within the Republican conference to win re-election with just Republican votes.

Therefore, Mulvaney said, should there be a vote on a privileged resolution on a motion to vacate the chair of the House of Representatives—a fancy term for a vote to remove Boehner from the speakership—the only way Boehner can keep his job is if Democrats vote for him to bail him out.

“The math depends on the Democrats, doesn’t it?” Mulvaney told Breitbart News in a phone interview on Tuesday afternoon. “I think if all the Democrats were to vote against John, he’d lose the Speakership, but I don’t think anyone knows where the Democrats stand.”

    It’s time (actually, it’s beyond time) for Bonner to ride off into the sunset and retire. Let’s hope he doesn’t return as a political hack or a lobbyist. Times up, Johnny Boy. Hasta la vista. Adios gringo. Best of luck in your well off government retirement. Don’t call us, we’ll call you. Maybe you can be a hit man.

    Could be the Republicans are only doing this because they know the Dems will keep him in. Then they look good to their constituents. Boy, am I getting cynical.

  • ADRoberts

    There is no reason for the Democrats to vote against him. He has given them EVERYTHING that they want and more. And watch as he gives them another CR that will just increase the deficit even more than before.

    It about time, I have been giving my house member hell for voting for this nut case not once but twice

  • NO MORE time in office…BYE!!! to boehner.

  • gjbare

    The Democrats will stand with him, as he is one of them. RINO!!! FOR SURE

  • mrcricketmba

    the Republicans need to get rid of him the sooner the better

    If he wins because of the democrats voting for him it is just another indicator of how liberal he is. If that happens he should be to embarrassed to keep the job. He will then become the laughing stock of the congress. If he should have any integrity left at all he should resign. Boehner should get it that he is not wanted as speaker by the people and by his own party.

    The crux of the problem must be that the speaker, representing the majority party, is elected by the full house rather than by the republican representatives. This is, in fact, more democratic than republican.

  • reggie

    Wah, wah, vindictive azz hole bonehead should never have been elected this time. He’s a democrap in rino clothing.

      Obama was also reelected showing that not only are the people stupid but so is the house. At least in obama’s case he only one because of voter fraud.

  • libsrtheh8ters

    Democrats will vote 100% to keep Boner Boy as speaker, he pretty much does everything they tell him to do.
