    Senior sources suggest that John Boehner will resign Speakership tonight

    GOP Activist Group Spokesperson Cites ‘Senior Sources’ That John Boehner Will Resign Speakership Tonight | Mediaite

    Ron Meyer Jr., spokesperson for the activist group American Majority Action, Appeared on MSNBC with Martin Bashir where he said that he is hearing rumors form reliable sources that House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will resign the speakership tonight.

    “We need a new Speaker,” Meyer said. “There are serious rumors that at the conference tonight, at 5 o’clock, John Boehner will announce to the conference that he is resigning as Speaker of the House.”

    Bashir said he found that hard to believe, to which Meyer replied that he also found it unlikely. Bashir pressed and asked if there was any evidence to back this up or a candidate who is seeking to replace Boehner as speaker. Meyer replied that he thought Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) was spearheading this “coup,” but had no evidence to back that up.

    “I’m not going to name names, just watch tonight,” Meyer said.
    Perhaps a bit premature, but not entirely implausible. Cantor's a mixed bag; he's supportive of military sequestration, which I support, but he's far more likely to be an activist social conservative.

    What's wrong with being a social conservative?

    Boehner never had the faith of the membership of the party and he failed to earn it. In fact, pretty much everything he's done since he took the position has pissed off the base.

    I tend to disagree with social conservatives on basically every domestic policy issue of note? I think a vast majority of their policy prescriptions come from raw emotionalism and wishful thinking substituted for level-headed, reasoned policymaking? I think they're the exact mirror image of the liberal "bleeding hearts" they talk of so much?

    Eric Cantor as Speaker of the House would be a DISASTER for the GOP. A Jewish de facto head of the GOP who would alienate every moderate Republican. I cannot see him getting it. Perhaps Boehner plans to resign to run again so that people will have a clear choice and not feel like they have to have him if they do not want him.

    I thought we were talking about "moderate" Republicans?
