McMorris Rodgers To Some Position

I guess it’s good for Washington that Representative McMorris Rodgers will be the House Republican Conference Chair. I mean she’s terrible but so would anyone the GOP would pick for that role. So sure, she’s a bit better than the average GOP member at going on the Sunday shows and explaining why their garbage positions are totally awesome. So sure, good on her.

McMorris Rodgers was named chair of the House Republican Conference in a secret-ballot contest. She was vice chair.

McMorris Rodgers defeated Tom Price of Georgia, who was endorsed by vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as well as Jeb Hensarling of Texas, McMorris Rodgers’ predecessor as conference chair.

    The news reports I saw claimed that CMR’s win over Tom Price was a win for moderate, establishment, Republicans. Which just goes to show how badly our media sucks. CMR’s far, far, from a moderate. She also doesn’t do a damn thing for her district.

    She’s a moderate as far as the district goes, Lord knows I’ve met some neighbors who think that she’s a close cousin the the socialist Anti-Christ himself. I’m inclined to think that leadership sees her a potentially vulnerable to a Democratic candidate with the right chops….a Brian Schweitzer style D.

    @4 Nah, probably figuring out how to knock off a couple more of your kin next round. She did pretty well this go-around, eh?

    Again Dr. Bob @3 does not read the article he is quoting.
    You missed this part Dr. Bob:

    Murray said that an agreement to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” the looming $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts set to strike in January, could preclude having to pass a Senate budget next year.

    Dr. Bob, given that, please explain to us why Murray should bother writing a budget resolution?
