Skip to comments.GOP REP: BOEHNER MAY 'TARGET' MORE CONSERVATIVES
Posted on 12/05/2012 2:22:54 PM PST by Bigtigermike
House Speaker John Boehner on Wednesday warned his House Republican conference against dissent from GOP leadership and threatened retaliation similar to that against the already-purged conservatives if anyone else breaks from his pack.
The Hill reports that, according to Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Boehner used his weekly GOP conference meeting to note that we [leadership] have punished four members, he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."
Huelskamp also said Boehner threatened there may be more folks that will be targeted and that Boehner told the caucus that we're watching all your votes.
Its unclear what criteria Boehner and GOP leadership plan to use in the weeks and months ahead. Boehner spokesman Michael Steel wouldnt provide specifics on what criteria or votes on which the Speaker is watching conservative Republicans.
Instead, when asked, Steel provided Breitbart News with the exact quote another Boehner spokesman gave two nights ago for a response to a completely different question. The Steering Committee makes decisions based on a range of factors, Steel said.

Is Boehner that stupid? Doesnt ones ideology determine their voting patterns?
he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."
Boehner needs to switch parties. He’s working for the Dems, might as well make it official.
If I were a member, I would leave Boehner’s caucus and see how he wins without the dissidents. Who needs Boehner or his worthless committees, for he has already surrendered to Obama?
More proof that the GOP is the Judenrat for the MarxoFascists.
If Conservatives want to survive - and I mean that literally - it’s time to divorce the Collaborators with the Enemy.
Conservatives are being purged politically now. History shows that shortly after such things occur - the targets of tyrants begin to be purged in other ways as well.
Prepare to Defend Yourselves.
Go to hell Boner!...You damn surrender monkey!
To the headline: we are surprised, why?
Threatening people with loss of power and privilege, marginalizing people’s voices, based on “failure to toe the Party Line”. Demanding lockstep voting.
The GOP has become the Democrats. Soon, like the dems, the pubbies will have a cadre of seatwarmers in the legislature whose job it is to vote the Party line.
I can’t wait to watch you lose your gavel, you crying coward.
Hey Butthead, you need to be watching OUR votes. RINOS ESAD!
and they will still demand that we vote for them
I see the GOP being wiped out in 2014
might as well
I couldn’t think of a more perfect name for this jack a$$.
GOP establishment = Vichy Republicans. Accord them all the respect they deserve.
The boy has offered him a position if that should happen.
I don’t know why Breitbart.com put scare quotes around the word target. Target is EXACTLY what Boehner is doing.
