Lacking a soul but loving being on tv, Trey Gowdy was destined for the Deep State. After Nov. 2012 election GOP House Speaker Boehner told GOP to start acting like losers and let him do deals with Democrats. In awe of Boehner, Gowdy agreed, saying: “Perhaps I am practicing the grace that comes from watching someone try to do what I myself cannot do”-NY Times, 12/6/2012

By a 234-201 margin, Republicans retained control of the House in Nov. 2012 but to the NY Times and its pal, then GOP House Speaker andsage counsel” John Boehner, it meant it was time for elected Republicans in the House to start acting like losers, declare defeat, and accept the Democrat agenda. GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy agreed with Boehner who had long tried to persuade GOP House members to sell out Republican voters: 

““He is the de facto negotiator for the party,” said   

Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, who along with other lawmakers from his state has given Mr. Boehner headaches in the past. 

Perhaps I am practicing the grace that comes from watching someone try to do  
2012 was a repeat performance of 2011, whenMr. Boehner tried to persuade members to compromise with Democrats.”

12/6/2012, “Boehner gains strong backing from House Republicans,” NY Times, Steinhauer 

“Many House Republicans appear to view Mr. Boehner with the same sort of respect that adult children award their parents for the sage counsel they ignored in their younger days....

On Wednesday, in a private meeting between Mr. Boehner and House Republicans, member after member spoke in support of him, in some cases saying a deal they would have rejected six months ago would most likely be taken today. 
 
“But with Mitt Romney’s and Mr. Ryan’s White House dreams dashed, Mr. Boehner resumes the role of the titular head of his party here, and many members realize they have little choice left but to support him.

Second NY Times article: Their party lost, badly, Mr. Boehner said.” (By a 234-201 margin, Republicans had retained control of the House)

11/10/2012, Boehner Tells House G.O.P. to Fall in Line,” NY Times, by Jonathan Weisman and Jennifer Steinhauer 

On a conference call with House Republicans a day after the party’s electoral battering last week, Speaker John A. Boehner dished out some bitter medicine, and for the first time in the 112th Congress, most members took their dose. 


Their party lost, badly, Mr. Boehner said, and while Republicans would still control the House and would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases as Congress grapples with the impending fiscal battle, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked so much of the last two years. 

Members on the call, subdued and dark, murmured words of support — even a few who had been a thorn in the speaker’s side for much of this Congress.

It was a striking contrast to a similar call last year, when Mr. Boehner tried to persuade members to compromise with Democrats.”…

Added: NPR cheers for Boehner too because he tells elected Republicans to act like losers:

12/8/2012, Once Boxed-In, Boehner May Finally Be Master Of The House, NPR, Frank James

“”It’s vindictive,” complained Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, talking to reporters after a closed-door meeting of the House Republican Conference on Wednesday. House GOP leaders booted the congressman from the House Agriculture Committee, an assignment important to his district and state.

It’s not a message to me. It punishes my constituents and I still represent them,” Huelskamp said. 

“It’s meant as a message to the Republican conference in general, especially the comment today [that Boehner reportedly made at the meeting] that there may be more punishment coming if you don’t vote the right way.””…
