What has altered the storyline in the past several years is not the emergence of the Tea Party but rather the permanent entrenchment of Big Government Republicans, aka Obama Republicans. President Obama has had that much effect on the national debate, which has had a direct effect on the national Republicans. The last gasp of principled conservatism may have come in 2010 with the rise of the Tea Party, but this also gave rise to the countervailing force of the Obama Republicans, resulting in the nomination of Mitt Romney in 2012.

But the genesis of the Obama Republican can be seen right from the beginning in the first year of the Obama presidency.
So just how much effect did the new president have on the GOP leaderships already statist leanings?
We revisited some of our 2009 Blue Ridge Forum posts, when the GOP Establishment projected no robust alternative to the plans of a clearly revolutionary at least to watchful eyes new chief executive.
The GOP Establishments lack of fundamental convictions enabled not just the Senate Republican leadership to go astray here, but also some key House GOP members, including Eric Cantor.
Eric Cantors 90% Punishment Tax
In the race to curry public favor, the House of Representatives (and then-Republican-Whip Eric Cantor) voted here in the words of the Republican Study Committee here for H.R. 1586: Additional [90 percent] tax on bonuses received from certain TARP recipients. (Even Speaker John Boehner voted against the punishment tax.)

He’s a member of the GOP-wing of the Democrat party, for sure.
Obama Republicans are the new ‘Moderate Democrat’.
Eric Cantor is an Eric Cantor Republican. He’ll do anything, be anything, say anything to replace Boehner as Speaker when Boehner steps down.
I think you mean the primary. If they are destroyed in the general election then it'll be by a Democrat.
I won't be voting for Cornyn in the general election. His critical cloture vote in support of Reid's removal of the debt limit saw to that. He'll win or lose without my vote.
I like the new label.
How do we end up with people like this in leadership positions?
And the difference would then be______________________________?
With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?
Yes. He used to be OK, but he’s been in DC too long and climbed too high.
Not much. But Cantor no doubt thinks it's his turn to be Speaker.
No. Just a Republican. That’s what they are.
