When it comes to gun walking and mass murder, top House Republicans act as if their party lost the midterm elections.
Tea party patriots are justifiably frustrated over House Speaker John Boehner's and young guns Majority Leader Eric Cantor's and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy's weak-kneed response to Operation Fast and Furious.
While the Left whips up scandals over a Georgetown law student's inability to locate the nearest Target to purchase a $9 month's supply of birth control pills, Boehner and company prefer the less vocal approach when it comes to slain agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata.
Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, appearing on Fox News yesterday called out the GOP leaders for their tepid response to the Fast and Furious scandal.
The Republican leadership were just kind of sitting there, and that's really a pretty accurate story.
Well, here's my question: if you're not going to pick a fight with the president, especially when you've got an issue like this Fast & Furious operation... if you're not going to pick a fight with the president when it's something that's really really important, what are you doing there?"
Alfred Hernandez, a spokesperson for the Bakersfield Tea Party suggested Boehner has Cantor on a "short leash" when it comes to speaking out about Fast and Furious.

Kinda sound like the doj has found something about our ‘great” leaders checking into Fast & Furious that the repubs don’t want us to know. HMMMM???? Then these repubs have the gall to come home and tell us what a great job they’re doing!
“The Gutless Old Posers are simply worthless. If this isn’t worth pressing forth with an investigation, what is? Oh, they’ll talk a good game, but in the end... we know their tact... surrender when the pressure comes. “
The frustrating part is thinking about what the dems would do with this if it was Republican president. Pelosi and Reid would be hammering this on a near daily basis. Yet Boehner and McConnell are afraid of their own shadows and won’t press this.
Their timidity and a weak GOP nominee could sink us in November.
“Their timidity and a weak GOP nominee could sink us in November.”
Its a pose. There is one RinoCrat Party in DC....
I have a recollection of a story that started to circulate about Boehner and his mistress around the time he became Speaker. It mysteriously evaporated and has not been mentioned again.
I think Boehner and the others have been blackmailed and have made the decision to put their lives above the good of the country.
Yes, as long as this has dragged on, I figured it would fizzle. All the Obama creeps had to do was stall.
I don't think you can even get into a high-position in government unless you are 'blackmailable'.
Gotta be some way to get da boyz to do the wrong thing all the time...
They have their little security and fortunes amassed. We do not count according to them.
Face it folks, it aint even a two party system anymore.
Rule of law has been broken. Welcome to rule of beast.
Cowards are just traitors with no guts.
The Republican elite are nothing more then democrat LITE, They have sold the American people down the river. There should be tar and feathers for them. Conservatives need strong voices to stop marxist Obama and his ilk.
I read on FR about a month ago there was a deal made with the GOP to make this all go away.
Hey, I told everyone that Issa would get really, really, really mad this time and he did.
They are all sold out to the FedMob. Gangsters.
This is the Globetrotters against the Shamrocks.(The Republicans are not the Globetrotters.)
I am beginning to think the GOP fears it’s own skeletons being exposed.
I hate to admit that after 09/11 I was firmly on the GOP side. After seeing the wheelings and dealings since then... well, I have become a cynic.
There, fixed it.
I didn’t know the GOP had any balls to drop...
