Talk about a meaningless gesture:
Rep. Bill Owens, a Democrat from upstate New York, may back House Republican leader John Boehner for speaker.
Talk about a reverse FishBait Miller scenario. Although it would look good symbolically the GOP needs Bill Owens as much as Dan Maeffi will need his congressional parking space after Jan 3rd.
It’s going to take more than a meaningless vote to return Bill Owns to the House
A New York Democrat has changed his mind about possibly voting for GOP leader John Boehner as the next House speaker.
Rep. Bill Owens now says he was “blowing off a little steam” when he told the Adirondack Daily Enterprise on Monday that it was “quite possible” he could vote for Boehner as speaker.
I guess he will have to win election the old fashioned way and earn it.
