Louie Gohmert went on the offense against John Boehner after hearing about Boehner's criticisms of tea party Congressmen and their opposition to immigration reform.
April 26, 2014

Congressman Louie Goober Gohmert appeared on Cavuto's show to waggle his finger at Speaker Boehner for his ridicule of Gohmert's Tea Party brigade and their resistance to sane immigration reform.

Claiming Boehner wants Republicans to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in November, Gohmert went on to call the Speaker "Tammy Faye Boehner". He then went on a rant slamming Boehner for being weak on securing the border and threatening to remove the Speaker's gavel from Boehner's hand forever. He extended that threat to any other Republican who dared to vote for any immigration reform.

Careful, Louie. Your xenophobia is showing. As for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, well, it looks like you and your pals are the ones on the ropes:

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., told CQ Roll Call that pro-rewrite calls earlier this week from two Illinois Republicans, Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Aaron Schock, recent comments from Speaker John A. Boehner, combined with a rash of immigration rallies and protests across the nation in recent days, are indications that momentum has shifted back to those hoping to implement an overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws this year.

Popcorn, anyone?
