Posted on 07/15/2013 2:13:48 PM PDT by dontreadthis
According to a source very close to the Republican Congressional leadership, Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner granted Patrick Murphys request to a private meeting to discuss Murphys possible defecting to the Republican Party.

He’s finally seeing how stark raving batschit crazy the Party of Satan and Sodomy really is.
Youre right. They are both the same.
I had to reread- I read defecting as deflecting.
Is this a stoning offense ? LOL
An extra AMNESTY vote just snuck in.
Almost any Democrat would be comfortable and welcome in today’s Republican party.
Wonder how accurate this is?
More likely he's been looking at some poll numbers, and has decided to do what he has to do to keep living in Washington.
Can we trade Boehner to the Dems?
Didn’t even think of that! (Wonder if he’d defect back again afterwards...)
So instead of him voting for all the wrong things as a rat-Dem, he now wants to vote for all the wrong things as a rat-RINO?
Do I have that about right?
Well, so long as there's no defecation involved, it will all work out.
Covert amnesty vote coming up.
Nuh-huh. The Dems wouldn't want him.
“had to reread- I read defecting as deflecting.”
There’s a third word could be miss-read but may be even more applicable. It sounds similar but has to do with relieving one’s self....
Pity he will find out Boner is a stealth democrat..
Only real way to defect is by becoming a raving libertarian lunatic..
Then what have you gained?..
You’ve traded delusion for lunacy..
Boner and McConnell are doing “Weekend at Bernies” with the republican party..
I first read it as defecating
More like an infection.
If the GOP lets him "defect" to the GOP, it will be more evidence of just how inept they are. They don't need his vote now. And if he is this vulnerable, he most likely will lose in 2014. So he defects and the GOP spends 2014 defending a weak candidate in that district rather than running a strong candidate against him. This would be such a bad idea, such a way to pull defeat from the jaws of victory, that you'd almost think the Dems put him up to it to make the best of a bad situation.
” This would be such a bad idea, such a way to pull defeat from the jaws of victory”
Perfect for Boehner.
What in the hell can he add positively to the Republican Party?
I read it as “defecating.”
“Nuh-huh. The Dems wouldn’t want him.”
And, more importantly, we dont want anything from the Dems.
The blog says that Boehner passed on Murphy’s meeting.
This is the same guy who likely stole Allen West’s seat with voter shenanigans that went on in that FL District.
Murphy likely won’t make it past 2014.
I read it as something else, which he will probably be just another piece of.
I read it as defecating... probably the same thing
Ha! It appears defecating is probably the most appropriate!
FWIW, I came to this realization years ago. So did my Dad. He left the rez mentally even before World War II broke out. He left it for good when he enlisted in the Navy the week after Pearl Harbor. He was disappointed because they sent him home and told him to come back in January. They had more volunteers than they could process.
He came back in January to enlist as instructed and became an officer by the war's end. We knew about his ties to the Reservation, but he would never let us claim them telling us that if we needed to get ahead based on race, we weren't good enough to get ahead. I finally found his tribal registration when the 1940 census went public last year.
Dad hated FDR with a purple passion. But he loved his country even more. Not one of his seven kids grew up to be a bed wetting liberal. In fact, my sister in Texas is so conservative, she makes me look liberal by comparison.
If we had a real Republican party, he’s never consider the switch and would not be welcome.
There’s just not much difference these days.
Red team -vs - Blue team. same owner. It’s like NASCAR
Maybe that is how Boehner is going to get a “majority” of his party to support amnesty for illegal aliens — by stuffing the party with bogus Republicans.
Sorry, wrong Patrick Murphy. This article is about the Florida guy, not the Pennsylvania version by the same name who is also vulnerable.
Maybe he was the “player to be named later” in the trade for Chuck Hagel?
changing parties hoping to leave the appearance of abandoning his idealistic socialist democrat lying thuggery is preparation to save his own ass and to escape the wrath of the people. this so typical of a DC politician. Someone should ask him if he expects to see blood in the streets of DC before 2016.
Patrick Murphy was heard to have said, “I don’t want to be a communist, I want to be a good democrat like John Boehner .
The PA Pat Murphy isn’t in elected office anymore.
“Hello to the new boss, same as the old boss”
I had to reread- I read defecting as deflecting.
Me too! I read it as defecating,
It could be RATS fleeing a “sinking ship”!!
That’s good, even if it’s not an escape to “land.”
Where’s LAND anywhere?
Boehner should tell him to KSA, I'm sure it will be the other way around...
We don't need him in the GOP house...
Never, ever, trust these so called defectors.
This is just a prog tool to dilute a not so conservative party to begin with.
Once a traitor to one side, why not a traitor to the new side.
Can you say double agent?
Believe me; I would scream, twitch/flail, speak in tongues, and foam at the mouth in order to get to the top of the Lib/Prog/devilDem party, just to stick a shiv in their backs at every oportunity.
“I had to reread- I read defecting as deflecting.”
I read defecating....
The jerk that “beat” Allen West?
Well it certainly could be, he was a ‘Republican’ prior to running for Congress switching due to “disgust with the Tea Party”. He’s pro-choice and pro-queer.
I would oppose him in the primary if he did switch back.
why is Allen West not running again? Beneath him?
You dad’s democrat party also sucked. The party has been controlled by socialists at the national level since 1896.
I have no idea
West: “If all you want to know is if I am running for Congressional district 18, the answer is no. My sights and objectives, political and otherwise, are focused on something far greater,”
Cryptic stuff that probably means he’s not running for anything, unfortunately.
