Skip to comments.GOP lawmakers want Palin, King, Bachmann, Beck to shut up
Posted on 12/11/2009 9:02:56 AM PST by bigred08
There are very few brave politicians in the world. Most of them mince their words and tell you what they think you want to hear. Brave politicians are ones who speak their mind. They tell you exactly how they feel, consequences be damned. Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King is among that rare breed.

THE NEXT TEA PARTY SHOULD BE AT GOP HEADQUARTERS!!!
ANYONE CARE TO START PLANNING THIS?
They are hardly better than deranged Demoncrats.
REAL conservatives need to SPEAK UP NOW, or this country will forever be changed in a most hideous way.
Zimbabwe here we come, if they do not SPEAK UP and OUT!
What happened to Freedom of Speech.
I don’t see how this could be tantamount to Holmes’s ‘shouting fire in a crowded theater’.
Headline should read, this is what is wrong with the GOP.
Silence the real leaders and let odumbo continue to $%^^& us
gop=gone obsolete party
I’m sure they do, and that’s exactly why Palin, King, Beck and Bachman won’t. And how come they didn’t include Limbaugh in there?
“GOP lawmakers want Palin, King, Bachmann, Beck to shut up”
The next time someone asks me why I damned near throw up when I think of the GOP elite and their disgusting groin leeches on the internet and elsewhere, I will refer them to the above statement
King is a RINO jack-off......
here is a good link:
I’ll be there, sign in hand.
The GOP has to be the first target of the cleansing.
The gov’t in general will be next.
This movement really can’t be stopped as long as the “leaders” continue to fearlessly tell the truth. And that’s all they have to do to be invincible. Never compromise the truth.
People can tell that you speak from real beliefs and are speaking the truth, and by comparison, the other pols appear devious and shady.
It’s waaaay past time for the GOP leaders to shut up and LISTEN to Palin, Bachmann and Beck or get out of the way.
Exactly how is King a RINO????
Cannot wait to hear this.
Specifically which GOP leaders want these people silenced?
Good article - one clarification - Glenn Beck is not a Republican. He is not a Democrat either (pretty obvious)... Like many of us Glenn Beck describes himself as an Independent, a Conservative and a bit of a Libertarian - but most of all a forward looking Traditionalist Loyal American.
The GOP remains in a deep coma.
You’re calling Steve King a RINO???? He’s one of the few true conservatives out there, in every sense of the word. You must have him confused with someone else.
No he’s not!!!!! Take a minute and read the article before you spout off.
What happened to the GOP “big tent”.
I was thinking the exact same thing.
A new National Journal poll of 65 GOP senators and lawmakers places those five in a tie for second place, behind "no one", on the list.
"We face challenging times with some hell-bent on tearing down our nation by perpetuating pessimism and apologizing for America. They suggest that our best days were yesterdays. But how can this pessimism exist? Proof of our greatness and pride is all around us today. We produce proud and great volunteers who sacrifice everything for their country.
"We can resist enslavement to big central government that crushes hope and opportunity. We must be wary of government largesse. It doesnt come free and often accepting it takes away everything that is free. Melting into Washingtons powerful and caretaking arms will only lead to suck away the incentive to work hard and chart our own course. This will only contribute to an unstable economy and dizzying national debt, and it will make us less free.
"See, in order to be self-sufficient (we) must be allowed to develop, to drill and build and climb to fulfill our promise! We can not start believing that government is the answer. It cant make you happy or healthy or wealthy or wise. What can? It is the wisdom of the people and our families and our small businesses and industrious individuals. And it is Gods grace helping those who help themselves." - Sarah Palin, July 26, 2009
"Close the border. They're called illegal aliens for a reason. If they're not going to follow the rules, they should not be in our country. Close the border, and get more aggressive about cracking down on illegal aliens." Sarah Palin, Rusty Humphries show, Dec. 4, 2009
Read the article. It’s a National Journal poll. They don’t say who was polled, just Senators, lawmakers, “insiders”
No one can stop them NOW !!!
Bunky, what planet are you from?
The GOP isn’t going to win like this.
I did read it and could not find any specifics. That’s why I asked the question. I am always skeptical on articles that have unnamed sources.
The article is up now. I was hoping it was not a real article. It is.
King is excellent you had better read the article.
Are you so diehard of a GOPer that you attack a good man because the GOP does?
I will go read the article myself to make sure it is accurate. If it is, Bye Bye GOP.
Dood...it's not Peter King.
If you knew what the F*CK you are talking about YOU would be dangerous!
There is not one citation of any GOP lawmaker telling anyone to shut up.
The "poll" shows that exactly eleven percent of "congressional insiders" would like to mute Beck, Palin, King, and Bachmann/
Which sounds like they got one RINO in a sample of nine.
The GOP are a bunch of RINO’s that should (ALL) be voted out of office. (Okay except for my senators, Sessions & Shelby).
How far behind no one were they? 62 for no one, 1 each for Palin, King, Beck?
“Would like to mute” is a synonym for “shut up”
Here is the full list of those who voted;
National Journal’s GOP Congressional Insiders include: Sens. Lamar Alexander, Jim Bunning, John Cornyn, Jim DeMint, John Ensign, Lindsey Graham, Kay Bailey Hutchison, Johnny Isakson, George LeMieux, Richard Lugar, Lisa Murkowski, Jeff Sessions, Olympia Snowe, John Thune, David Vitter; Reps. Michele Bachmann, Brian Bilbray, Marsha Blackburn, Roy Blunt, John Boehner, Charles Boustany, Kevin Brady, John Campbell, Eric Cantor, John Carter, Michael Castle, Tom Cole, Mike Conaway, David Dreier, Jeff Flake, Scott Garrett, Bob Goodlatte, Kay Granger, Doc Hastings, Pete Hoekstra, Bob Inglis, Darrell Issa, Peter King, Jack Kingston, Mark Kirk, John Kline, Christopher Lee, Dan Lungren, Kenny Marchant, Kevin McCarthy, Patrick McHenry, John Mica, Candice Miller, Sue Myrick, Devin Nunes, Mike Pence, Tom Price, Adam Putnam, Dave Reichert, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Mike Rogers of Michigan, Peter Roskam, Paul Ryan, Pete Sessions, John Shadegg, Adrian Smith, Mark Souder, Pat Tiberi, Fred Upton, and Joe Wilson.
I was wrong. Full list is posted above.
But, this is exactly what happens when someone mistakes a blogger’s mish-mash of thoughts and posts it in “BREAKING NEWS”.
I think the article -is of the opinion- that the GOP are silent on issues while Bachmann,Palin,King, and some others speak out.
If the GOP want to McCain again in MODERACY and political correctness they can go play elsewhere and lose.
Steve King is a dynamo, and one of the few brave souls willing to stand up and stick their necks out. Even Rush Limbaugh highlighted Steve on his show recently - that’s how impressive he is.
We need more leaders like him.
Precisely. If we would stop this ridiculous infighting among eachother, we could get our act together and come November 2010 Nazi Pelousy will no longer be Speaker of the House.
It is front page newsworthy.
It seems like it may be newsworthy whether you like it or not.
Alaska, Iowa, Minnesota? I thought we were supposed to be a Southern Regional Party? That’s what the libs at Politico say, and that must be true, right?
I always suspected that if Obama ever decided to finally come down with the Fairness Doctrine most elected Republicans were not going to be too unhappy about it
(2) With the likes of Graham, Alexander, and Snowe in the list, who can be surprised that eleven percent don't want to hear from Glenn Beck?
Not attacking you, FRiend, I just think the headline and column in the Examiner are totally out of line with the actual survey.
Which member has the brightest future?
Kevin McCarthy 25%
Paul Ryan 21%
John Thune 32%
Eric Cantor 20%
Which voice in your party would you most like to mute?
No one 16%
Michele Bachmann 11%
Glenn Beck 11%
Steve King 11%
Sarah Palin 11%
Tom Price 11%
Sarah Palin 28%
Michael Steele 12%
Agreed. But this is not early primaries in argument. This is discussing what direction the GOP is going. Remember the fatcats of the GOP are wishy washy moderates it doesn’t matter what STEEL says they rule the pocket book.
I hope your talking about Peter King, Rep of Long Island, and not Steve King, rep of Iowa.
Peter King, rep of Long Island not to be confused with Peter King, dumb dumb of Sports Illustrated.
