McCarthy says Republicans are concerned Cheney can't 'carry out the job'

McCarthy says Republicans are concerned Cheney can't 'carry out the job,' a sign of her waning support in the House

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday began to break from his neutral stance on the growing desire within the GOP to oust Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming from her leadership post.

{snip}

"There's no concern about how she voted on impeachment, that decision has been made," McCarthy said to start off.

"I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message," he continued. "We all need to be working as one if we're able to win the majority [in the 2022 midterm elections]."

Cheney's removal from caucus chair would depend on a majority vote from House Republicans, and is not up to McCarthy alone. Those in the MAGA wing of House Republicans are reportedly plotting to replace Cheney with another woman, potentially in Reps. Elise Stefanik, Ann Wagner, or Jackie Walorski.

20. The Irony being her dad, worthless prick Dick Cheney started the Big Lie program with Saddam Hussein

having been a cause of 9/11.

Be careful before you feel any sympathy for Liz Cheney.
He dragged us into endless war for his oil interests.

3. How would the repugs know if she can't carry out the job?

They have no defined plan to do anything other than not vote for anything Biden wants to do. If they were doing their job, they would be looking out for their constituents, not themselves and winning the next election. I get tired of their do nothing approach to governing. It just shows their incompetence and stupidity.

11. It's gangster talk! If you watch the Godfather movies you'll catch onto that Republican lingo.

 


... or just watch any movie with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci.

12. Thank you

The Dems need to come out and call the repugs for what they are. Worthless. I agree with your gangster description. That should be brought up in campaign talk.

4. If I were her...

The way she’s being treated by her own party would put me so over the edge I’d pass the coyote on the way down.

I’d change parties. The republicans would be crazed. Senate would tip towards the Democrats.

It would be righteous pay back for all the grief.

Won’t happen but one can only dream.

5. The Cheneys are not turn the other cheek kinda people.

There is speculation Liz will run for president in 2024, as an independent, if she is booted out of the party.

6. She isn't in the Senate she is in the House.

Plus she is one of the most conservative members of Congress, she would NEVER become a Democrat and if she did she would vote with the Republicans most, if not all, of the time.

I mean if you want to fluff Donald Trump that's your business. But leave everyone else who's not interested in your fantasy alone.

10. It's here! That time that we wondered about, that the repugs will finally start eating themselves!

Back and forth, to and fro, they attack each other, won't respect each other, and pays obedience to a big fat orange tangerine in FL. And it's ironic that they're going after Cheney, a party long time favorite since her Dad's day in the Bush admin.

Eat away I say, it just goes to show how pathetic the gop has gotten, that it hangs onto every uttering, every moronic statement that rump issues. Even though he lost by almost 8 million votes these morons are still believing the lies, still believing Russian propaganda (and other Countries). I'll even provide the tartar sauce or ketchup if anyone wants some.

ADDED LATER:

And McCarthy is guilty of self projection I would say...when the facts clearly show that he's the one unable to perform his 'duties', then accuse others of the very same behavior.

Moron. Calif. needs to wake up in that portion of the state and vote him out or redraw his district lines (would be fair since republicans did it to democrats all across the board).

14. Translation: She won't lie when we tell her to lie. ...

McCarthy then implied, "We all have to use the same lie at the same time, otherwise she can't carry out the job."
