Mini-Dictator "Rules"

One of the three candidates for Majority Leader of the Senate pulled out. McCarthy decided not to run, and instead of holding the election with the other two candidates in the race, current resigned Speaker immediately postponed the election until who knows when and adjourned the meeting without allowing a vote. Thus keeping the speakership for himself for an unspecified time into the future. Boehner must be taking tips from Obama., even though he has resigned. Mark Steyn (in for Rush today) calls it a “banana republic move," and he's right. There's a lot of finagling going on in DC these days, led by Obama. Most of the actions taken recently ARE “banana republic acts.” I fully expect Obama to do SOMETHING so as to be able to stay in office beyond Jan. 20, 2017. He's poo-pooing that idea, but I think it's solid. If we're not careful, we're going to be saddled with Obama for a long time, yet, until we can manage to oust him. (The Hill)
