Ya know, I knew that, if elected, Romney would purge Conservatives. Quite frankly, even though he is a RINO idiot, I didn’t expect Boehner to do it. Wow.
I did. Did you see his face during the Obamacare Tea Party rally on the capitol steps? He clearly didn’t want to be there. I think it was while Bachmann was speaking.
The Republican leadership/elite is [a little] upset it didn't win, they figured that they could get their liberal (Romney) in by relying on the dissatisfaction of the [conservative] base... unfortunately for them it seems they "misunderestimated" the amount of people who, like me, have said "I'm not going to vote for someone only 'because the other guy's worse.'"
But we shouldn't be surprised at all, the push for Romney by the leadership/elite (including dirty, dirty politics) shows us just how much they value their base: they don't, they're obviously entitled to our vote. [/GOPe-think -- I need a shower now.]
