House Votes 10th Time for Speaker- Same Result

Einstein was attributed with saying; “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”). The House voted for the tenth time for Speaker with the same result. Apparently that is a reflection of deep state Representatives that are interested in money for-themselves and a handful of dissenters (20) that refuse to vote for the same old deficit spending leadership of the deep state.

In economics a good plan is to have one’s cake (own it) and eat it too through environmental and employment sustainability. As one eats one cake it need be replenished rather than consumed and drawn down to nothing with dirty energy, mass species extinction, degradation of ecosphere and fishing, increasingly non-secure national boundaries, concentration of wealth and comparative impoverishment of the poor and middle classes etc. In Washington D.C. pork for constituent special interests seems to be the general principle that will enrich one’s political family narrowly. Republicans have been divided over the election of Rep. McCarthy. Because the party is more of a deep state organ than conservative and some have even talked about making concessions to Democrats to get a deep stater from California elected Speaker of the House it is consistent that they refuse to select a conservative for-the-people sort of representative to the job.

I have suggested they run Florida Rep. Laurel Lee for the job. She is a lawyer and can speak; that’s what they do (too well sometimes).

The Republican Party should elect Rep. Laurel Lee as Speaker of the House as the leading edge of change. The party after Ronald Reagan just seems to lack the capacity to put forward charismatic, capable leaders. Rep McCarthy is alright I suppose, yet no one expects much to change or get done if he does win the job. January of 2025 will eventually roll around and the party should coordinate a bit with a little optimism and forward thinking its personnel for the equivalent of a Superbowl team.

The Seattle Seahawks appear to be building for the future rather well. Denver has gone out and been competitive for the important task of winning first place in the NFL draft April 27 by losing most of its games in 2022. Denver gave its first and second round draft picks to Seattle for 2023. Republicans like the Seahawks barely have a winning record in the House. Seattle too may be good enough to make the playoffs if they win and Green Bay loses to the Detroit lions Sunday, unlike Seattle the Republican Party does not appear to be planning ahead for 2024 when a DeSantos victory would put the party into the position of taking control of the Senate, House and Presidency. Speaker McCarthy doesn’t have the charisma required to lead female voters to vote Republican in 2024. Of course Republicans could offer the Speakership to Rep Hakeem Jeffries if he would change parties today. That may be the only way there will be a new Speaker tomorrow. He would look like other deep staters in Congress and fit right in.
