Republican Congressman Embraces the Tea Party

World Net Daily interviews Congressman Gohmert.  Excerpt:

WASHINGTON – One of the tea-party leaders in Congress believes the days of Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, as speaker of the House of Representatives are numbered.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told WND he predicts Boehner will no longer be speaker “by next January,” regardless of the outcome of the midterm election in November.

The Texan doesn’t think it will take a coup to remove Boehner, believing the tide is already moving in that direction, and saying, “I think people are ready for a change.”

. . .

In addition to predicting the downfall of Boehner as speaker, Gohmert also told WND:

  • He believes the majority of GOP voters have tea-party values
  • He approves of GOP primary challenges to establishment incumbents by conservatives
  • He suspects the establishment GOP is at war with the tea party because of “fear”
  • He feels it is realistic to believe a tea-party candidate could win the presidency
