More Proof Some House Republicans Are Insane
Holy smoke–this is just bat-crap crazy! Or was there just a joke among some conservatives over who could bring the dopiest guy to the party? Like what played out in The Dinner Game.
House Republicans reached out to Ben Carson in 2014 about replacing John Boehner as Speaker of the House, The Hill reports.
Said Carson: “They were looking for an alternative, they were looking for someone strong and courageous who might really be able to add some spine and some backbone. I was very flattered that there were several members that thought I’d fit the bill very well, but I think it played out correctly the way that it did.”
Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) told The Hill on Thursday that he was one of a group of three who did so.
