Jim DeMint Jim DeMint: Boehner Should Be Worried About His Speakership

Republican leadership, in particular Speaker of the House John Boehner, should be wary of the growing level of frustration within their party, said South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint, who recently announced that he will leave the U.S. Senate at the end of this session to become president of the The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

During an interview with Jay Severin on TheBlaze radio network Thursday, DeMint issued a warning directly to Boehner while expressing his own frustrations with Capitol Hill and his party, which led to his decision to leave public office.

“Boehner says he is not concerned about his speakership, ought he be?” asked Severin.

“Yea, I think so,” answered DeMint.

Shortly after announcing his decision to leave Congress, DeMint delivered a slight barb against the Speaker during an interview with Rush Limbaugh. Saying “It might work a little bit the other way around,” when asked if the Speaker forced him out.

  1. Boehner is extremely week, ineffective and needs to go and replaced with someone who has a fire in his/her belly and who has a steel spine

    • Ya, neleh, we need less boo hoos, and a lot more BOOS from this weeping, crying and wussified wonder with no balls to speak of! As a speaker of anything, this teary eyed bag of wind, and moisture is useless. He couldn’t speak at a kindergarten graduation well enough to save his life. I have never been so sickened by anyone who was elected to HELP us, and NOT DO MORE HARM TO US THAN BEFORE HE WAS EVEN ELECTED! He needs to be thrown out on his sorry do nothing rearend, and fast! Before he is allowed to damage us even more. He should worry about his “seat”, because he is about to be thrown out by the seat of his expensive pants! But, being the useless twit that he is, he is more concerned with his tan and how his “president” feels about him, never mind the American people, to him, we do not matter or count!

    We hear all the time these stories of weak, power-hungry GOP people, but what can WE, the citizens do? Petitions don’t mean —-! They pay more attention to ex-spouses than they do us! What concrete steps/actions can WE take, other than storming the Capitol, to get their attention? Words are useless; it may even be past time for action, but WHAT?

  3. Boehner needs to be replaced by a stronger GOP Rep. Paul Ryan or another person who will not swoon ay every little thing BHO wants!!

    RINOs aren't the only problem among Republicans, even worse is eunuchs, we gotta get rid of them ASAP!! That's a much greater challenge!!
