From Teddy Roosevelt’s stick to the #DramaQueenTrump threats, all these tactics have been backfiring on the Republican leadership.
The house is not a home GOP game and mob-style threats have turned one-time supporters into GOP lawmakers who are now more entrenched in their opposition, to a hot air and BS bid for the speaker's gavel.
The so-called leader the Republicans chose has been described as Racist, misogynistic, anti-woman’s rights, sexist, anti-scientific, homophobic, xenophobic, religiously bigoted, sycophant for the gun lobbies. Finally after 3 weeks a GOP kids-like game of musical chair, the Republicans chose a Christian Evangelical named Johnson.
This newly sworn-in Speaker Mike Johnson's record is being rapidly unearthed and critics are expressing anger and outrage that House Republicans have elevated what some are calling a far-right Christian nationalist to become the third most-powerful elected official in the country.
The little-known Louisianan, who won on the first ballot, rallied objections to 2020 election certification, won Trump’s hedged support and has a solidly conservative voting record.In other words, the crème of the crap. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/mike-johnson-house-speaker-re…
The Republicans went from speaking softly and carrying a big stick idea of negotiating peacefully but also having strength in case things go wrong. Simultaneously threatening with the "big stick", to a pursuit of political power that resembles to dream and threaten with violence.
Who are the crazy 8 GOP candidates for House speaker now? Congressman Emmer's glue did not hold. Just hours after he won the Republican nomination for speaker, Tom Emmer has officially dropped out of the race. The big fat liar claims he is staying out of this mess, but called him a RINO before his idiot followers followed his orders to not support him.
House Republicans look to choose another nominee to replace Kevin McCarthy after bids by Reps. Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan failed on the House floor. https://www.yahoo.com/news/house-speaker-who-are-the-gop-candidates-now…
They claim pressure tactics allegedly extend to right-wing media outlets, just as if the US Congress were a Banana Republic. The Republicans brought this on themselves The GOP Will Implode, For Good. and We The People will get through this and our democracy will be strengthened as a result. The real reason is this group is keeping NY Democrat Harlem Jeffries from becoming Speaker of the US House of Representatives. Republicans have finally lost it after all these years.

It appears that Jim Jordan is a real Republican nut job.
Remember that with Matt Gaetz, Ron DeSantis, and Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan was one of “Trump’s warriors” who led #GOP efforts to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
What unified them was anger with the way Jim Jordan and his posse tried to cajole them into supporting him. The GOP 22-member boogaloo includes some of the most moderate Republicans in the House as well as one member of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus. Some of them represent swing districts, and others hail from deep-red ones. But not all of them voted to certify the 2020 election, folks. Make no mistake about this. He led 147 Republicans who voted to deny Biden's Presidency.
