That headline is not a joke!

Although I was this report was satire, a Democrat representative floated the idea of George W. Bush as House Speaker.

Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) tabbed George W. Bush as his House Speaker candidate.

Yes, really!

Sherman made the suggestion during an interview with Forbes Newsroom.

“He could come back,” Sherman said.


“Obviously, I’m not a real fan of how the Iraq War went, but I would think that any reasonable Republican would be somebody that Democrats could work with — if it was part of a system where you didn’t have five of the most extreme Republicans blocking important legislation and saying, ‘If you bring that to the floor for a vote, we’ll knock you out of your Speakership.’”


Via Forbes:

Sherman said that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the GOP conference’s choice, would be “among one of the worst Speakers that we could have,” though Jordan would be politically useful for Democrats due to being a “disaster.”

Since the ouster of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Republican lawmakers have been unable to elect a new Speaker of the House.

The GOP conference’s first choice, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), was chosen behind closed doors late last week, then abruptly pulled out of the running.

Not in a million years!

Rep. Jim Jordan won an internal GOP vote Friday to be the party’s nominee for House Speaker.

However, several Republicans said they will not support Jordan in a House Floor vote.

Jordan continued trying to gather support for his Speakership bid Monday.


According to reports, some House Republicans had conversations with Democrats to potentially reach a “bipartisan governing coalition.”
