Nancy Pelosi served as the 52nd speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 2007 to 2011 and again from 2019 to 2023. Pelosi was a consummate politician who served as Speaker with an iron grip by eliciting respect, admiration and fear from her caucus. She never allowed the House to devolve into the chaos that reigns supreme now that the GOP controls the lower chamber.
Kevin McCarthy has lost a second round of voting; this is unprecedented in the last 100 years. The Republican Party is in disarray. If Republicans can’t even nominate a Speaker, how will they pass any substantial legislation?
Answer, they won’t. They don’t have a legislative agenda, strap your seat belt on, and get ready for a wild ride of phony investigations of Dr. Fauci, Hunter Biden and maybe even an impeachment of Joe Biden, never mind that he hasn’t committed any crimes or misdemeanors worthy of an impeachment.
The Republicans have been in control of the House for only one day and the Clown Show is in full effect with the Freedom Caucus serving as the ringmasters.
It doesn’t matter who ends up being the Speaker: McCarthy, Scalise, Jordan or anybody else. it’s going to be a shit show.
