Skip to comments.Time to purge (Throw out Conservatives who rejected Boehner!)
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 wasnt a vote against the Speakers actual performance. By all accounts, Boehner has done yeomans 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 arent Republicans. They shouldnt be allowed to masquerade as Republicans.

‘...By all accounts, Boehner has done yeomans 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.
The Republican establishment sucks.
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.
Is this guy joined with the professor who wants to throw out the Constitution?
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.
The Weeper of the House comes from my home state.Let me express my sincere apologies for that unfortunate fact.
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.
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.
The “Dirty Dozen” should beat that drunk loser to the punch and resign from the loyal opposition wing of the democratic party. Go Independent. Why associate any further with a party full of quislings?
Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.
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.
There, fixed it. That 'L' didn't belong in the word "Republican".
Conservatives are by far the largest bloc of the House Republican caucus... so “The Hill’ celebrates this guy who thinks they should leave!
‘The stages of denial” personified.
