GOP Rep. Gohmert Compares Boehner to VA Head: ‘Time for New Leadership’

Will John Boehner’s House Speakership be able to survive the 2014 midterm elections? Even if Republicans retain control control of the chamber, one member of the Boehner’s is fairly certain the answer is “no.” During an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show Wednesday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) predicted that come January, the House will have a new Republican in charge.

Gohmert reminded Hannity that he was the one Republican who nominated someone other than Boehner for speaker last year, while actually Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) joined him in voting for Allen West, who was kicked out of office after one term the previous November.

“I do think it’s kind of like the VA,” Gohmert said, making a timely analogy. “When you’re not keeping your promises, nothing personal, but it’s time for new leadership. And I really think that come January, we’ll have new leadership, I really do.”

As for who the new candidate for speaker could be, Gohmert would only say “we’re working on it.”
