The vote to remove McCarthy as Speaker of the House was a historic one. And many people wondered what the reaction would be.
But McCarthy has made a stunning confession after being removed.
After McCarthy was removed as Speaker, he spent some time talking and answering questions.
One thing he told reporters and colleagues stood out and even surprised many.
Outside the Speaker’s office, McCarthy told a packed room, “I believe I can continue to fight, maybe in a different manner. I will not run for Speaker again, I’ll have the conference pick somebody else.”
The admission took many colleagues, friends, and journalists by surprise as many had assumed he would attempt to run again.
McCarthy said, “Doing the right thing isn’t always easy, but it is necessary. I don’t regret standing up for choosing governing over grievance.”
He also seemed disappointed when he said, “Unfortunately, four percent of our conference can join all the Democrats and dictate who can be the Republican Speaker in this House.”
He further stated that “I don’t think that rule is good for the institution, but apparently I’m the only one.”
Currently, Patrick McHenry is serving as the interim Speaker of the House until an official vote for the next speaker happens.
McCarthy had other opinions about the Republicans who voted to oust him saying “These are the same people that never voted for me, they thought it was big that they went to ‘present’ after we went 15 rounds [in January].”
McCarthy went on further saying “I’m not quite sure those individuals are looking to be productive… They are not conservatives and they do not have the right to have the title.”
He wrapped up by claiming that This job was never about me. I hope you felt that. If I lose my job doing what I truly believe is right, I’ve made my peace with it.”
McCarthy only served as Speaker of the House for around nine months before he was voted out of power.
McCarthy had also recently led a bipartisan effort to avoid a government shutdown with a temporary 45-day respite.
While some may feel that McCarthy did a poor job as the Speaker, Republicans are hopeful that the next Speaker can bring revision and unite the Republican party against the Radical Left.
That should be the main goal of Republicans at this point: remove the radicals from power and stop the harmful and destructive policies of Joe Biden.
Whoever the next Speaker is, Americans are hoping for a strong leader who will halt the plots and schemes of the Democrat party.
Americans need to take the power back from the politicians and hold our elected leaders accountable for their actions.
It is time to remove the corrupt politicians and vote in strong pro-American leaders who will make America great as it once was.
