Finally, it’s going to happen.
Since 2012, I’ve been sending a very loud message that Kevin McCarthy is the answer to what’s wrong with Washington. I truly believe that Kevin can make DC work again. John Boehner is just too tired, too liberal, and too Establishment to continue as Speaker of the House.
It’s time for new blood and a new attitude. I’ve known Kevin for many years. We go back to when we both ran together for Young Republican leadership. Back then, it was the McCarthy-Benkie ticket. Naturally, we won.
Working with Kevin, I soon saw that Kevin possesses very special gifts that are perfect for the position he’ll assume. He just has a knack for moving people and getting votes. Nobody is better.
What’s especially impressive about Kevin is the pace at which he has achieved so much. It’s amazing to think how he’s poised to become the third most powerful person in American government. To think that he started his career winning the lottery as a college student in Bakersfield, California, and taking those winnings to start a deli which he sold at a profit just screams American dream. Later, Kevin worked as a staffer to Congressman Bill Thomas and then was elected to the State Assembly. Quickly, he was elected to leadership in that body and then became a member of Congress serving in the same seat once held by Congressman Thomas. It didn’t take long after that for Kevin to become the Whip and then the Majority Leader. Now he’s in line for Speaker.
Kevin is more than just a Washington guy. He’s the husband of a beautiful wife and together they have two great children. He’s also a terrific friend.
We all knew that Kevin would rise to power someday. This is just happening a little sooner than expected, and that’s a good thing. We’ve seen the McCarthy magic at work and with DC in the sludge right now, he’ll need every ounce of that power to move things in the right direction. I’m confident he can do it.
Hopefully, we’ll soon have a Republican president to work with him. For me, the ideal scenario is Donald Trump as president and Marco Rubio as Majority Leader in the Senate. That’s my dream. I’m happy to see the first step about to happen in making it come true.
It’s just icing on the cake that Kevin is in line for the job. As many know, I’m almost as ecstatic that Boehner is resigning. It’s past time for this change to happen.
Americans are about to find out why Kevin McCarthy is right for the country. He can truly change America for the better. Obama has brought nothing but shame and pessimism to the country. The true agent of optimism as well as . . . yes . . . hope and change is Kevin McCarthy.
Kevin will be a great Speaker of the House and help make America great again. I’m looking forward to seeing that gavel in his hands soon.
Way to go Kevin!
