What drama: Bachmann, Garrett, Blackburn wait till LAST MIN to cast vote for Boehner, bring the vote from 17 defections down at final second— Robert Costa (@robertcostaNRO) January 3, 2013
Bachmann’s always been Little Ms. Personal Ambition. She and Rove go way back.
I wonder what he offered her?
The deal Boehner & McConnell gave them seems to be that they will use the kenyan as cover to open the spending spigots. The lobbyist payola will flow generously to those who play ball.
Then get off your butt and form a new party, but I think you like complain from the keyboard all of the time instead of working..
The Democrats must be happy.
General statement pointed to those who know its about them.
I recently accepted the fact that nothing The GOP do will stop a significant percentage of conservatives from voting for them and calling it a good thing.
Every week brings a new affront to common sense and decency and every week, vocal supporters ride to defend it. In the MSM (interviews and such) and online.
Every cave in brings all new creative excuses. And when they cannot excuse the inexcusable, they fall back on the old timeworn saw, We have nowhere else to go.
Fine. Go there and sit silent while your country collapses with your help. Because when your country needed you in whatever small way to stand up for what was right, you chose what was popular.
Live with it. Because the rest of us are forced to.
None I can think of.
That’s not what would have happened—she would not have got a majority of votes cast and there would have had to be another vote. (Unless some Dems bailed out Boehner, which is likely.)
You got that right...let us now throw Bachmann under the bus as a RINO.
Time to ask Doug Hoffman from NY-23 to form a new party!
The circular firing squad is in full force. Let the democraps have it all.
I am not surprised.
Others and present = 15.
They already do. As we see with all the support for failed republicans/GOP on this very thread
The new Gun Laws will be just the begining. I expect Boehner to give Obama ever penny of Pork laden spending for Hurrican Sandy “Relief”. Immigration will be another big loss for the GOP.....Because they want the hispanic vote.
Wow. Is there anybody here is who NOT a whiner today?
Time to switch registration to ‘Independent’...I’ll be voting for Constitution Party candidates from here on...I’ve read their platform, and it is as close to conservative as anything out there.
She always was. She, merely, used conservatives as her stepping stool. The big mouth is a deceiver. Didn’t you notice that in the primary when she lashed out at Perry and lied and didn’t touch the liberal Romney/the GOP choice? She was his loud mouth guard post. But don’t let on, she will be back to conservatives with her fork tongue when they need some buttering up to settle down and behave.
And your solution, oh great one, is exactly what?
More of the same?
Got a better idea, let’s hear it.
“FAIL”-Scott Garrett has just seen his last dime from this supporter. His Chair is clearly more important to him than his constituency. Doesn’t take long for DC to pollute even the most resolute conservatives. What a cesspool full of turds.
Bachman has betrayed the Tea Party. Like Fredo, she is dead to me.
Oh Lord. Get a grip. She is one of the best in Congress. We need her and just because she voted for Boehner does not make her a traitor. Big woop. Nobody would have fought the tax increase. Hell even Paul Ryan voted for the mess. No wonder we are losing everything. You are a “zero tolerance” type....Mr. or Ms. Goodie Goodie who has to have their own way. Well grow up and start supporting conservatives like the GREAT Michele Bachmann who I hope and pray will be our President someday!!!!
I don’t think anyone else really wants the title right now.
Republicans are de facto leaderless.
The Speaker is walking in now and looks like he is about to cry. Lord, help us.
