or the Pubs put up somebody they will vote for.

5. I don't understand the amount of error in her list... She has twice called for Allen West of Florida

(who of course was thrown out after the 112th Congress, ugly teabagger that he was)....

17. You know, I never mind someone correcting my error and try to acknowledge it promptly...

But your rude way of doing so is really unnecessary.

So, to you: WRONG!

Allen West was someone's choice for speaker and is part of the 12 dissenting votes.

19. 429 congresspeople (out of 433) registered their presence to the clerk of the house.

This means 429/2 = 214.5 = 215 votes are needed to elect a speaker, assuming all 429 vote.

The rule is an "absolute majority of the members present and voting" is necessary to be elected Speaker.

34. one of my right-wing Facebook friends by virtue of the fact that she was in my high school grad clas

some 40 years ago - has been posting things about how Boehner is a closet leftist and has no backbone to stand up to Obama's extreme socialist agenda - So I guess these attitudes are pretty mainstream in the current Republican Party. The 2012 election only confirmed their beliefs that the Republicans lose because of a combination of voter fraud and the GOP being hijacked by liberals like McCain, Romney and Boehner. I suspect close to half or more registered Republicans beleive this firmly.
