Time to purge (Throw out Conservatives who rejected Boehner!)
The Hill ^ | Tuesday January 15, 2013 | John Feehery

Posted on 01/15/2013 11:35:19 AM PST by Bigtigermike

If the vote for Speaker on opening day confirmed anything, it confirmed that simple fact. By having a dozen of his Republican colleagues either vote against him or not vote at all, John Boehner just barely squeaked by in his bid for a second term for Speaker.

The vote against Boehner wasn’t a vote against the Speaker’s actual performance. By all accounts, Boehner has done yeoman’s work leading the House under what can only be called difficult circumstances.

The vote against Boehner was really a vote against the Republican Party. It was a protest against Republican policies and against the Republican establishment.

Boehner should invite the 12 who voted against him to leave the GOP. They aren’t Republicans. They shouldn’t be allowed to masquerade as Republicans.

‘...By all accounts, Boehner has done yeoman’s work leading the House under what can only be called difficult circumstances. ..”

Following that beyond idiotic statement, any sentient being will judge the writer as being even more vapid, stupid, and completely without intellect than even Barbara Streisand.

Boehner is a drunken, vapid, piece of Obamastuff...and should be flushed right along with the Obamadork.

It’s not such a bad idea. Two road diverge in a yellow wood. I think the Republicans are taking the left-hand path — but I think all right-thinking people should go down the road less traveled and take the right-hand path. I’ve left the Republican Party, and if the GOP wants to kick out anyone who doesn’t support the Political Establishment, then I think it is a good thing.

I wouldn’t wait on an invitation. We need a Conservative Party that is effective. Our real message and positions are being kept out of the public discourse by RINOs and RATS. A conservative party, small as it might be, can articulate their positions clearly without being corrupted by the government class vermin.

This is the RINO point of view. The local RATS are applauding Boner for throwing my congressman, Huelscamp, off the Ag committee.

Me. Feehery doesn’t know what he is talking about. It was the last congress that voted for Boner. The current congress started its business with adopting House rules. I suppose Mr. Feehery doesn’t pay very close attention to things and wouldn’t know a conservative principle if heard one.

'They aren’t Republicans. They shouldn’t be allowed to masquerade as Republicans.'

What is a Republican?

That is the core issue facing the GOP. For decades people have voted and supported them. Yet, they don't have a platform they even stand on.

Smaller Gov't? Less spending? Secure borders? Free markets? etc.

They are adrift.

Great!
It’s time to divest ourselves of the worthless wholly-owned subsidiary, “The Republican Party.”
The Left has declared overt war, maybe not just in a figurative way.

They feel they are in a position of power and have come out of the closet as the violent Bolsheviks they are.

The Republicans have come out of the closet as a bunch of metrosexual momma’s boys, who are afraid of conflict.

If they can’t do their job, then don’t associate with them.
They remind me of a bunch of palace eunuchs who willingly sacrifice their manhood for security and food.

Why should we expect anything different?
They have sacrificed us peons in fly-over country for decades.

OK, fine. We who think Bonehead is doing a liberal job of it will leave the Republican party. Don’t count on our votes for sh*t in any election; federal, State or local. My money stays in my pocket as well. If a candidate isn’t an independent patriotic American they won’t be getting MY vote.

And for those Republican jackasses that claimed Romney didn’t need my vote, well, I guess he needed more than just my vote! Double HA!

No, we don’t need a conservative party.

Conservatives with their sanctimony and petty personal self righteous insistence are the problem. There can be no conservative party because there is no homogeneity among conservatives.

What is needed is a leader, a person that will electrify all conservatives and create a whole.

Sarah almost made it but fell short. Perhaps Governor Jindal or Senator Rubio or Sentor Paul will rise to that position.

He is a complete idiot.

Under this kind of thinking the GOP is utterly doomed.

What is a Republican?

Someone that will pledge their life, fortune and sacred honor to secure the unalienable rights of their fellow citizens.

At least that was what the first Republican President thought.

Apparently there are only 12 in the House of Representatives.

Boehner is likened to a rudderless sailboat - the wind blows the sailboat around and it flows with the winds the blow it around, Boehner needs a backbone. Yeoman’s work, yeah right. Come now how many years has Boehner been in DC? By now Boehner should be a Journeyman.

A yeoman is actually a lesser official in a royal or noble’s household. According to the American Heritage Dictionary. So we have a better understanding of what Yeoman means.

Feehery and his rant in effect proposes the majority of the Republican be expelledd from the Party for having opinions disseenting from the mostly self-appointed leadership. Feehery proposes to divide the Republican Party to accomplish censorship of most Republicans.

He should instruct Republican allies on the outside — business groups, corporate PACS, trade associations, the Chamber of Commerce — to cease to give these members any campaign contributions.

Those are not Republican allies on the outside. They're inside and they're not allies they're owners.

We're outside and only count when they need somebody to vote for more moderates willing to follow another follower.

Reagan was a RINO - he cut and ran from Lebanon, gave amnesty to illegals, and raised taxes (even though he CUT taxes). In the eyes of certain FReepers, HE’S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

Jesus Christ was a RINO - He befriended and forgave tax collectors, advised people to pay their taxes to the government, and consorted with known prostitutes. In the eyes of certain FReepers, HE’S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

In the case of every conservative candidate in the last election cycle, the cry went out: YOUR GUY’S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

The unchallenged FReeper Definition of "Conservative" is: “I don't know for sure, but whatever it is, it sure as hell ain’t YOU!!!”

sanctimony and petty personal self righteous insistence

People with those traits, in my mind, are not REAL conservatives. Do conservatives tend to be principled? Yes, but they act for the best interest of the nation. Liberals may claim they are acting in the best interest of the nation and hide behind it, but I have never seen one that had anything but self-interest at heart. Our problem is that we have way too many Republicans who are only masquerading as Conservatives. It is almost as if they exist as a double agent to do the bidding of the Democrats when the chips are down. Many Republicans do not really believe in conservatism, so they cannot articulate it in a way that allows them to emerge as a leader.

For several years, the Republican Party has intentionlly undercut conservatism. An articulate, attractive conservative candidate in the Republican Party will never emerge as a leader until the Party stops undermining them. Instead we get the likes of H.W. Bush, Dole, W. Bush, McCain and Romney. What a disgusting, uninspiring list!

Selling LIBERAL wet dreams there, John Feehery?
If I were you, I'd be concerned about which side of the issues I stood for.
Have you read The Tea Partier versus The Republican ?

I read a great article by Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret. written February 4, 2011 from "NewsWithViews.com" and here's part of it.
Read Compromise Is a Dirty Word for Club for Growth.

Take a good long look at where "Establishment Republicans" ALWAYS take us.

Pretty stupid stuff, looks like satire.

However they should have had the guts to run for Speaker themselves, but not one did. They sure dont want that job.
So their symbolic voters for Donald Duck or Daffy were meaningless.

That begs the question, what is a real conservative? When is a conservative not a real conservative?

Are there tests where a paper strip is wet by saliva or other bodily fluid where if it turns pink (red) one is a conservative and if it turns blue liberal?
