As a seasoned old talk radio host Lee Rodgers said many, many times in his illustrious carreer... “Never fall in love with a politition! They’ll break you heart every time!!!”

Bachmann has established the TeaParty Caucus in the House of Reps and has far more fidelity to the Tea Partiers than almost any other elected official in Warshingtin!!!

Rubio's problem is that he is finding it very difficult to think of the interests of the American people first!

I guess it doesn't come naturally when you're not natural born.

Don’t need an investigation. McCain got ahold of it and read it on the Senate floor and then began his scurrilous attacks on Bachman.

You are absolutely correct. Bachmann is on the House intelligence committee (as is Gomert) and the letter was sent as a matter of oversight and inquiry. It should have been answered rather than having McShady reading it on the Senate floor. Arizona should be ashamed of his lousy legacy.

What Rubio said is more wimpish than anything.

The 'conservative' puppetmaster defending the Brotherhood on this issue is, in my opinion, Grover Norquist. Even our hero Mark Levin was quick to shut down Robert Spencer of JihadWatch.org on Friday when Spencer began implicating Morquist in the attacks on Bachmann. Levin called it "other people's battles", when in fact it was his close relationship to Norquist that caused him to cut off Spencer. Republican politicians are terrified of incurring the wrath of CAIR.

Wow, it took 36 posts till somebody with a brain responded intelligently. Some of you people are ready to believe Salon.com without ever going to the source to see what Rubio actually said. The Left puts out the bait and you swallow it hook, line and sinker. Why do you think the Left is attacking Rubio like that? Use your brain. Thanks Armando for getting the facts.

FreeRepublic lost a lot of good posters and I hope they come back. We seem to be over run with ron paul types that want to lose to prove how uniquely pure of thought they are. They were for John Anderson in 1980 and Ross Perot in 1992.

Funny how pointing out the obvious by Ms. Bachmann brings the critters out of the woodwork.

That should be Mrs. Bachmann, a happily married woman. I doubt she'd much care for a title coined by the reprehensible Marxist duo of Sheila Michaels and Gloria Steinem.

That minor matter aside, your other points are well stated and indisputability correct.

The marxists/democrats including Obama are destroying America. They beat Islam/Muslims to it.

Both are evil religions Islam and socialism. Democrats practice socialism and their god is government. Islam well it's just plain evil. Obama is both an Islam and a marxist.

Well, here is the episode I was talking about. I donated to West’s campaign in 2010, so I was upset with his comments during this controversy. I have looked at more recent articles and it looks like West is still a Tea Party darling.

I do think though that his support of the debt ceiling increase was unfortunate, as was his response to the criticism he justly received. I remember thinking at the time that I had made a mistake in donating to his campaign.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/update-west-responds-to-tea-party-schizophrenia-over-his-boehner-support/

Earlier today, The Blaze reported on Rep. Allen West‘s defense of his support for Boehner’s controversial debt plan. West is striking back against Tea Party critics who are less than pleased with his allegiances. In addition to appearing on Fox News to defend his stance, West spoke with radio talk show host Laura Ingraham. During the interview, he lamented the Tea Party’s “schizophrenia” and reaffirmed his take on the speaker’s plan. He said:
“…one minute they’re saying I’m their tea party hero, and, what, three, four days later I’m a tea party defector, you know, that kind of schizophrenia I’m not going to get involved in.”
http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2012/01/29/republican-establishment-eliminating-allen-west-district/
As we have pointed out before, Freshman Congressman Allen West was manipulated by the Decepticon establishment into supporting various horrid legislative constructs; most damningly the raising of the debt ceiling. West joined with McCain and Boehner calling the Tea Party, hobbits, childish and damaging. Now the establishment is done with West and he’s about to find out what that means. He sold his soul (support) to them and now that he’s completed their bidding they will eliminate him.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/lt-col-allen-west-fires-a-round-at-the-tea-party/2011/08/03/gIQAl2BnsI_story.html

Then, when congressional leaders and the White House worked out the debt-limit compromise, West wasn’t among the 66 House Republicans in opposition. Tea party leaders howled, but West called them schizophrenic, and he theatrically brushed their criticism off his shoulders.
“I called some of the tea party leaders,” he told his audience at the Young America’s Foundation conference on Wednesday. “They were all, ‘We’re mad at you,’ ” he said with a mock whine, then gave a who-cares shrug. “I asked them one simple question: If I had voted no, what would I have been voting for? And they couldn’t answer that.”

Not sure where you get this “Ron Paul supporters” or John Anderson supporters” nonsense...but the fact is that Rubio is no conservative.

He supports Open Borders and Illegal Alien Amnesty...so no surprise he would attack Bachmann on a National Security issue. Rubio also supports Government funded programs to deal with Global Warming.

Actually a “Ron Paul type” would support Marco Rubio....libertarian views on Open Borders....weak on National Security...and supporting terrorist groups. Heck, maybe Rubio should be Ron Paul’s VP pick...they share a lot of the same liberal, security threatening positions

The Tea Party does not represent conservatism anymore

No party does.

Tea partiers do though.

Rubio is not represenative of the Tea Party principles.

"Dumping" of the Tea Party isn't necessary to start another conservative movement.

Ping me when you get the new turely conservative movement going.

I don't understand why so many Freepers are enamored with Rubio.

Rubio is a tool of the Bilderbergers. They seek a one world fascistic government run by banksters. Because no government can hope to rule a people completely, even with militarized police forces and a high degree of surveillance, they need a fascistic "religion" to rule people in their own homes. islam fits the bill. It's why our government and the governments of Europe will not only NOT combat it, but rather will go out of the way to promote it while attacking Christianity at every turn.

The NWO they are building is a fascist government with a fascist religion for the "little people". obama mitt and rubio are on board.

It's my tin foil hat wearing theory and I'm sticking with it. What else makes sense?

FUMR and FUMR!

As a seasoned old talk radio host Lee Rodgers said many, many times

My favorite quote of Lee's was: "Politicians and Diapers should be changed often, and for the same reason"

Speaking of Mr. Rodgers, anyone out there know how (or if) he's enjoying his somewhat forced retirement? The Suss-man isn't bad, I guess, especially with Mel back, but he ain't no Lee Rodgers!

“I don’t understand why so many Freepers are enamored with Rubio. He is weak on going after the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. He also supports the Dream Act.”

Bump. I, for one, am not enamored of him. He seems to me to increasingly show that if he ever was an anti-establishment person (which I am not sure he ever was), he is quickly coming to the realization that being a fawned-upon member of the Club is a lot more enjoyable.

The facts don’t lie. Dems can get away with running against people. There is a duble standard. When Republicans/conservatives run against people we lose. It doesn’t matter the people. Run against Monica, we lose. From Jim Oberweiss to JD Hayworth, run against illegals.. we lose. Note it has zero to do with the reality of illegals. Suburban PTA moms do not vote for meanspirited.

But when we run on Contract with America, or tax cuts, or Reganomics, or jobs, and issues, we win. Check the facts.

Rubio is expecting his Hispanic bros to identify with him and come out to vote in droves. However, I don’t think there really is a solid Hispanic identity, I think they identify with their own nations.
