When it comes to gun walking and mass murder, top House Republicans act as if their party lost the midterm elections.
Tea party patriots are justifiably frustrated over House Speaker John Boehner's and young guns Majority Leader Eric Cantor's and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy's weak-kneed response to Operation Fast and Furious.
While the Left whips up scandals over a Georgetown law student's inability to locate the nearest Target to purchase a $9 month's supply of birth control pills, Boehner and company prefer the less vocal approach when it comes to slain agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata.
Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, appearing on Fox News yesterday called out the GOP leaders for their tepid response to the Fast and Furious scandal.
The Republican leadership were just kind of sitting there, and that's really a pretty accurate story.
Well, here's my question: if you're not going to pick a fight with the president, especially when you've got an issue like this Fast & Furious operation... if you're not going to pick a fight with the president when it's something that's really really important, what are you doing there?"
Alfred Hernandez, a spokesperson for the Bakersfield Tea Party suggested Boehner has Cantor on a "short leash" when it comes to speaking out about Fast and Furious.

The old Republican leadership is still dialed into the MSM as the media. They are deathly afraid of offending them, and the MSM is spiking the story.
If the leadership was paying attention to the new media, we would have more action.
The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.
I would rather trade these idiots away with their defeat in November, than have them there sabotaging and playing their own selfish games to the detriment of our cause.
Send the tear jerker home and find someone with balls. Shouldn't be too hard, as Michelle Bachmann is still there.
Boehner=what a phony pansy--feels our pain about like William Jefferson!
The Gutless Old Posers are simply worthless. If this isn't worth pressing forth with an investigation, what is? Oh, they'll talk a good game, but in the end... we know their tact... surrender when the pressure comes.
GOP Leadership is an oxymoron.
There. Fixed it.
Didn’t we know this? Ping.
Also true minus the "oxy".
Issa was shut down by boehner when he wanted to charge holder with contempt. You got to ask yourself why. boehner needs to explain himself and WE should start asking him to. Email, call, or fax. Tweet him or jump on his facebook if he even has one. Inquiring minds want to know.
Boner has got to go. He is even weaker than I imagined.
The GOP house and senate leadership should be singing roll me over in the clover because that is what they are, political whores. Yesterday McConville agreed to Weed er Reid’s demands to put the Turd’s judicial nominations up for vote BEFORE he would allow the job’s bill to come to the floor for discussion. That told me too things about that McConville jerk, first of all, he has no convictions. He was holding those nominations hostage because the Turd made appointments without senate approval. So, now all is ok about the recess appointments I guess. Second, the job’s bill should have come first, not second. The point is Weed, er Reid, will bring it up for discussion and then take out all the stuff he does not want, add his own, and shove it up the GOP’s backside as he has done so many times in the past. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me the third time, and either I like it or I am into gay political sex I guess.
Like the role the Washington Generals serve for the Harlem Globetrotters.
Mexico must be in on it. I can’t understand why they’re not making a huge fuss about it!
The GOP leadership are just the court eunuchs for Emperor Obama.
I’ve said it before and I will say it again: the Republican leadership is composed of masochists; they love being beaten. The rest of us... not so much.
