Posted on 12/05/2012 12:14:07 PM PST by Bigtigermike
House Republican leaders used a secret criteria list to decide which conservatives to purge from powerful House committees, Breitbart News has learned. As this time, it appears they will keep the criteria list hidden from the public, too. Spokespeople for members of House GOP leadership have refused to discuss details about the list on the record with press.
Because GOP Leadership won't discuss the list, its unclear what specific criteria the list contained and how much of a role it played in the conservative purge. Its also unclear which member of House Republican leadership initiated this process.
In remarks to the Heritage Foundations Bloggers Briefing on Tuesday, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp confirmed the existence of such a list.
Weve heard from multiple sources that someone walked in with a list of votes and said if you didnt reach a particular scorecard of what was considered the right vote which by the way, in most cases, was not the conservative position then [they said] were going to have to remove you from the committee, Huelskamp said.
All that took place behind closed doors, which is again a problem with Washington, D.C. whether its the budget negotiations, whether its everything else, its usually done behind closed doors," he explained. "I think, as conservatives, this is where we can win: Weve got to be willing and able to talk about things in public instead of being afraid of actual public scrutiny.

I suspect that the only secret criteria is who is in the way of socializing the country.
“The conservatives should return the favor of the purge when the vote for Speaker of the House comes up in January. “
They’d better throw out the b*ll-less wonder RINO dirtbag follower of the House.
And he’d better not hit the ground until he reaches Europe.
I remember once, awhile ago, when I was a Republican.
The republicans are starting to implode. Barry Hussein Soetoro has them afraid to go over the cliff.
Conservatives BLACKBALLED in the Republican Party.
Good F-ing Riddance, eGOP.
I always knew Romney was a big mistake. He was THE MOST LIBERAL GUY IN THE ROOM, and now, the Leftist Wing of the Republican Party thinks WE NEED MORE COWBELL!
Wife beater, child molester, drunk, whore monger, obnoxious, accepts donations from AlQaida affiliates.............
I could put more in there ~
A few minutes ago, I got a call from the RNC requesting $. I told them it is over. He says we are continuing the fight. I said BS, why are you removing concervative Congress people from key committees. Ignored statement.
Once Politicians, Government employees, and the takers get over 50% it is over. Then throw in the dumbist warm animal on the globe, college students, and the US is doomed.
Physical bully who has used his boxing skills to assault people who disagreed with him.
Moran needs Tazing.
So now what?
Seriously, now what do we do?
That SOB Bonehead should be strung up by his fly sized testes.
Another reason to not vote GOP. He and all his cohorts will be gone in the next election and if not, reduced to the status of lower than whale crap in the dem controlled house.
Explain again to me why we need these guys??
Damn them! I called my representative and read the riot act to the young man that answered. He will pass it on and nothing will be done. I will call again in January and express displeasure with voting for the present leaders.
Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter if we call or not.
Good for you.
They will no longer get through to me... I had the hardline phone disconnected, effective tomorrow. I have to admit that it felt strange getting rid of a phone number that I have had for over 30 years....
Now if I could just learn to live without the internet. LOL
someone should tell Boehner and tell him:
You can go along with Obama now, you can screw the country just to say you are willing to “get along”; it will be the last time you get away with it. You need to think and act like Newt did in 1995.
I understand gov't is not conservative's religion, it's not a priority to be active politically, however we have come to a point in history I believe if conservative's want to save this republic and restore the "Idea Of America" we better get off our passive asses and get VERY politically active!
The Tea Party created an avenue, so more than ever conservatives have to start getting involved.
Crash it burn it get it over with. The longer the wait, the bigger the pain.
What’s the point of fighting when your own party is against you?
I can’t believe I actually voted for ABØ.
As heard just now on Hannity, there was a group that went behind closed doors to do committee chair selection. Who was in that group?
