Boehner to attend Ritz Carlton event for anti-tea party group
dailycaller.com ^ | 3/28/14 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 03/28/2014 8:22:00 AM PDT by cotton1706

Republican House Speaker John Boehner will spend next weekend at a Ritz Carlton event hosted by an anti-tea party group devoted to fighting conservatives within the GOP.

Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor will be among 28 House members attending a $5,000-a-head event hosted by The Republican Main Street Partnership’s advocacy group, Red State reported. Donations will reportedly go to the anti-tea party super PAC Defending Main Street, which by February had received most of its funding from labor unions.

The event will be hosted at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island in Nassau County, Florida.

The Republican Main Street Partnership and its affiliated Main Street Advocacy group are headed by former Rep. Steve LaTourette, who has committed himself to raising money and running ads to defend centrist congressional Republican candidates from tea party primary challengers.

“They have decided to systemically go against center-right Republicans in primary elections,” LaTourette previously told The Daily Caller, referring to his tea party rivals. LaTourette said that tea partiers are happy to call him a “RINO” but that that they go “apoplectic” when the “RINO gets a gun” and “fires back.”

“Here’s the deal: we didn’t start this fight,” LaTourette said, “but I’m going to finish it.”

LaTourette’s efforts challenge those of conservative House members like Rep. Louie Gohmert, who recently launched his GOH Conservative PAC to fight back against establishment Republican fundraising efforts.

Gohmert criticized Boehner Thursday after the Speaker rushed a seemingly doomed bill to extend Medicare reimbursements through the House with a “voice vote” while many members were still in their offices instead of on the House floor. Gohmert said “you need to be able to trust your own leadership.”

Harry Reid lives at the Ritz when he is DC. Must be nice. Was he an invited guest of this group of attack GOPers?

I sincerely hope that fellow Tea Partiers realize that our biggest enemy is the GOP. If not ... just pack it in guys and gals because the Tea Party truly is dead.

Tea Party - trying to limit the power of DC.

Please begin the process in order that America may once more trust our leaders.

Excuse me ... There are two enemies. They are equal in disdain for Conservatives. One is an entire party and the other is not an entire party.

The Republican Party and the Tea Party are two completely different entities. Anyone who thinks the Tea Party can survive within the GOP is delusional. The GOP is NOT CONSERVATIVE.

Yes, they both belly up and feed at the same trough. The Republicans just want to displace the Democrats so they can be closer to the shute when the “grain” comes out.

I like several but could name them all. I like my rep also. I understand your thoughts but I'm not willing to say there are no good people in either party though am willing to say that about all democRATs. I do recognize those that are good and honest people are in the minority but I am also not willing to throw them all out. I would rather pick and chose my battles. A clearer message is sent by picking and choosing our battles (imho).

Little back-stabbing POS... were it not for TEA Party victories in 2010, he’d never had the chance to be the feckless, spineless, no-account SOH that he is today.

I’ll say it again. I wasn’t overly excited when the “republicans” (not saying conservatives) won the house in 2010. I simply didn’t trust them. And they’re proving me right every day. A third party should be formed immediately. Give the rinos an opportunity to publicly side with the democrats. That’s the only chance of completely getting rid of them. Too many people simply refuse to see it.

Boner will feel right at home there. I fully expect this RINO traitor to ‘retire’ and get a plush position on K Street as an effing lobbyist.

His constituents should be really proud they have loosed this effing traitor on our country. Real proud. Bunch of dumb asses if you ask me.

From the RedState article linked in this article...

The Republican Main Street Partnership’s offshoot “Main Street Advocacy” is hosting the event at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island. Steve LaTourette, a liberal Republican former Congressman from Ohio, is the face in front of the group.

LaTourette is good friends with John Boehner. Behind the scenes, LaTourette’s group is funded by the vast left-wing conspiracy. According to an email inviting people to the event, “People that are attending have donated $5,000 to the PAC.”

As I reported at the first of the year, LaTourette’s group has received money from left leaning unions, George Soros back organizations, and a major Democrat contributor.

There are plenty of allies in the congress. They are a minority of reps, but a sizable enough chunk they are causing Boehner a lot of trouble. The crew that followed Cruz’s lead last fall are on our side.

I certainly agree with that. As far as I’m concerned now, traditional Republican is traitorous appeasement and capitulation. They are as big as, or perhaps greater than, an enemy as Democrats.

The Tea Party isn’t dead and its principles are not going to die. It may have about reached the end of its purpose though, which was to politely inform a corrupt and detached system than enough is enough, and the sun is setting on the corrupt status quo.

The TEA Party’s role was as a polite ‘cease and desist’ notice. They are ignored. Of course they are. But notice was served. Now, truly determined resistance may begin, hopefully outside of the sham uniparty system.

The Tea Party got them control of the house, bonehead speaker, endured boneheads tears, listened to his promise to America.

No, not in D.C.

The event will be hosted at the Ritz Carlton on Amelia Island in Nassau County, Florida.

I mean, hey, if you're going to bash your conservative base, you may as well pick a luxe resort in which to do it, just to really rub it in their faces!

Boehner, if you are against the Tea Party, you are against what the GOP was for when it was founded - FREEDOM.

If you are against that, join the American Marxist Party (fka Democrats) you POS.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner will spend next weekend at a Ritz Carlton event hosted by an anti-tea party group devoted to fighting conservatives within the GOP.

This is pretty sad. To me the "tea party" represents people who believe in common sense, know that men and women are different, believe in fiscal responsibility, the sanctity of life, and that less government interference in daily life is a good thing.

What do the Establishment Republicans like Boehner believe?

From the comments:

Want a list of leftist Republicrats to primary? here is a list of 56 of the elected members of the Republican Main Street Partnership. By joining this group, they are signing onto a far left governing agenda.

To give you an idea where these people sit in the political spectrum, every year one of their elected members is awarded the Lincoln Chaffee Award.
