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!!!!
“She is one of the best in Congress. “
If that’s he case based solely on her actions here and in the primaries, then you have a pretty loose definition of ‘best.’
Because those actions are demonstratively destructive to conservatism.
She hired a megaRINO to ‘run’ her campaign and tank it.
She did nothing to blunt Romney’s BS against conservative values/candidates. Those are not the actions of a conservative. They are what a GOP ringer would do.
Disagree? Explain why. Actually don’t bother. You won’t convince me or anyone else willing to objectively judge someone by their actions.
I'd like a list of all the great things our House of Reps have accomplished since the Tea Party Supported legislators were elected to office. Best I can tell, they have been swept out of the way by the "establishment RINOS." This seemed like a pretty big opportunity for some of those Tea Party supported House Members to really shift The House to a battle ready Right.
If they are "choosing their battles" I can't think of a better one to fight than to get the house going more conservative with the fresh blood we just put in there in 2010.
“Oh Lord. Get a grip. She is one of the best in Congress.”
Naps, what does that actually even mean?
You need your prescription refilled. Quit worshipping at the alter of pretend conservatives who NEVER back up their rhetoric. Oh, btw, Santa Claus isn't real either.
And give this guy a call: 1-800-618-PHIL. A very conservative talk show host out of Nashville and syndicated. He tried to work with Bachmann and her staff when SHE wanted help in the primary.
She promised this and that and never deliverd. Come on his show...never did. Have him introduce her at a rally in Nashville...she cancelled and had a private fundraiser instead.
He said her staff were rude, liars and accused him of lying and trying to stab her in the back. Phil said it was like dealing with 7 year olds.
Bachmann voted for Boehner?
Paul Ryan voted for Boehner?
Well then, according to the Collective Wizdumb of FR's venerable Drum Corps of Whiners Blamers Moaners Handwringers and Fingerpointers, Rep. Ryan and Rep. Bachmann and the 220 or so others who voted for Boehner, must immediately be drummed out of the ranks of True Conservatives, have "RINO" permanently affixed to their foreheads with hot branding irons, and be consigned to the lowest level of RINO Hell with bus treads all over their bodies.
The only task remaining is to whip up a list of those Certified Patriotic Republicans who voted against Boehner, and pick one to be our standard bearer. This shouldn't take very long at all, since there are only nine (9) of them:
Ah! What an illustrious list. Every single name is no doubt instantly recognizable to those who pay even the least amount of attention to politics, due to their extremely high name recognition. Yes indeed.
Everyone not on that list gets thrown under the bus! So c'mon, hurry up and state your choice before the voting ends.
ah. a voice of sanity. i wonder if anyone is going to wait for her and other tea party leaders explanation for their votes before tarring and feathering. no wonder bachmann lost in the primaries. most of the people here lothe her.
i like bachmann and i still like her. i imagine there was just no other viable choice at the end of the day/vote except boehner. too bad.
