Posted on 12/11/2012 10:53:59 PM PST by Fred
A House GOP source has confirmed to Breitbart News that House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy was the one who drafted the secret criteria list House Speaker John Boehner used in his purge of conservatives from House committees. The source, someone with inside knowledge of how Boehner conducted the purge, told Breitbart News that McCarthy crafted the list, which included a scorecard of where several conservative members stood on certain votes. According to the source, its unclear at this time whether McCarthy made the list of his own accord or if he did so at the request of somebody else in GOP leadership like Boehner or House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

Wll, you could say it again.
Well Said Fred.
Who cares most intelligent republicans will be gone soon....
PS - Happy 15th 'birthday'!
Fred isn’t a newbie. And repeat posts happen to all of us at one time or another.
I rarely check when a person joins FR, but the post below yours congratulated the guy on his 15th year on FR (12/5/97), so I just happen to check the guy above that - you - and see that you joined on the very same day as me: 9/10/98. We’re Freep twins!
Like I've been saying folks: Protect your assets and live your life since (not like) there is no tomorrow for our once glorious Republic. It's over.
it can always be restored, never say never.
Is that twin talk?
There will be blood. RINO purges will now be conducted as we rid ourselves of these progressives who now evolve toward Obama fascism.
Before McCarthy gets strung up, I’d like to know a little more, because he is been a reliable conservative vote (even though he is from California).
Charge them treason.
I enjoyed him in Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Here he is checking Jonn Beaners's pod.
That is what I want to know. Why now? What is Boehner getting ready to do?
I guess I’m surprised that that Breitbart’s writers are surprised that McCarthy had a hand in this. I mean, party Whips *do* tend to be the guys who keep tabs on individual members, and dole out party discipline to an extent (though less so in our system than in the UK, etc.) It makes sense that he would be the one Boehner went to for drawing up the list.
Not saying I *like* it, mind you. Just sayin’ that it isn’t surprising McCarthy was the go to guy here.
DO NOT be fooled by any “scorecard” crap.
The RINOs wanted to get rid of ALL the Conservatives and TEA party people in a policy of ‘rule or ruin’.
It appears they will get both.
It’s interesting to know about McCarthy, but IMO the list could have been drawn up, instigated by Mickey Mouse, Goofy, or Donald Duck, and not have made a difference as it was Boehner that used it.
Boehner IMO has to be ousted from that position as Speaker, and the RINO’s rather than the Conservatives have to be neutralized politically, or sent where they belong to the other side of the aisle.
I wish that FReepers would not even tease at the lie that McCarthyism was a bad thing.(understand that the whip has the same last name.)
Tail-gunner Joe McCarthy was a PATRIOT!
