Rep. Greene says it nots her fault if Republicans lose the House

U.S. Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) says that it would not be her fault if the Republicans were to lose the House speakership position to the Democrats. Speaker Johnson appears to be on his last legs and the Republican Party is already splintering.

Greene said this despite the fact that she is actively pushing for the current House speaker - U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) - to be removed and despite the fact that House Republicans are about to have only a one-seat majority.

According to The Epoch Times, Greene made the claim - that she will not be responsible for the Republicans' loss of the House - during a recent interview with Real America's Voice. 

There she pointed out that the blame lies with leadership, not with her.

"It's not Majorie Taylor Greene . . ."

Greene specifically placed the blame for the Republicans' potential loss of the House on those Republican House members who have recently decided to call it quits, including U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Mike Gallagher (R-WI).

"Every time a Mike Gallagher or a Ken Buck leaves early, that brings our numbers down and brings us dangerously closer to being in the minority," Greene told Real America's Voice.

She added, "It’s not Marjorie Taylor Greene that is saying the inconvenient truth and forcing everyone to wake up and realize Republican voters are done with us doing this kind of crap that we did last week."

Here, Greene is talking about the House's passage of the $1.2 trillion government spending bill. Johnson supported this bill, and this is why Greene is pushing for Johnson to be removed.

Fox News reports:

House conservatives like Greene remain frustrated by the package's passage and argue it extends policies outlined by the previously Democratic-controlled Congress with sky-high spending and a lack of Republican policy riders.

"I'm not going to be responsible for . . ."

Many have brought up the fact that, given the Republicans' dwindling House majority, there is a very real possibility that, if Republicans remove Johnson, Democrats could take control of the House. Democrats are well aware of this, and they are salivating at the opportunity.

Greene, however, seems to believe that it is more important to get rid of Johnson than it is for Republicans to keep Johnson and their one-seat House majority.

"I am not going to be responsible for Hakeem Jeffries being Speaker of the House," Greene told Real America's Voice.

She added, "I am not going to be responsible for a Democratic majority taking over our Republican majority that lies squarely rarely on the shoulders of these Republicans that are leaving early because they don’t have the intestinal fortitude to handle the real fight and the responsibility that comes with leadership and the end of our republic when our country is nearly destroyed."

Suffice it to say that not all Republicans agree with Greene's logic. Even U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) - the man behind former speaker Kevin McCarthy's (D-CA) ouster - has expressed doubt about it.
