As you probably know, grassroots conservatives are up in arms over the fact that some conservatives Members were “purged” from committee assignments.
Now, it seems Republican leadership is aiming to make matters even worse.

He may be right about there being an AH factor, just not the way he thinks.
All of them ~ so how can that be held against any one of them.
They were CHOSEN by the people, and removed
by Romney,Bohner,Obama and Soros (partners in Tyranny).
Boehner could have added himself to that list then, along with a few others.
Conservatives will continue to be hosed until we gain leadership or become another party.
***Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, a staunch conservative who sits on the Republican Steering Committee that made the decision to remove the lawmakers,***
A ‘staunch conservative’ doesn’t remove the only thing that gives us one iota of a chance to bring some sense into the budget process, i.e., conservatives.
Representative Westmoreland is therefore not a staunch conservative.
Being labeled an 'AH' by craven politicians for voicing and defending conservative principles is no vice.
In other words, they were thorns in the side of the chairmen and the leadership and the other members of the committe. Just as most of us normal people would be if we had the chance to be there. We would be saying “what the hell are you people doing? Let’s eliminate that, not fund it again. I object, unanimous consent is denied, call the roll. Are you kidding me, I’m voting no!, etc”
They’re not go-along, get-along types so they must be eliminated.
Considering that Bonehead is the most Obamahole-like of all the repulsicans, that excuse don’t hunt.
Of course, the biggest Obamahole, one that is the smelliest, most repulsive, least educated, and most muslim-like is the big Obamahole, the big stink, the T*rd-in-Chief, the dork/felon/sleazebag...etc, etc....whew, I could exhaust my insult repertoire describing the chief illegal alien.
And bonehead has to be a complete idiot to let that “thing” out debate him.
“You’re NOT playing by the rules!”
He said sarcastically.
What "system" would that be? The one where Republicans "compromise" by giving the communists EVERYTHING they want or else get trashed in the communist state controlled "media"?
And when we start voting you good for nothing RINOs out of office we’ll just say you had a certain “incompetent douche-bag” factor.
I expect the rest of the g0p will know what it’s like to be purged soon enough.
Oh, these guys ain’t seen NOTHIN’ yet.
This incomprehensible blather from Westmoreland is an example of why the Republicans are getting SLAUGHTERED in the court of public opinion over the Cliff negotiations.
I get the part where they were removed by Boehner et al (GOP Leadership - or, rather, lack thereof). But explain the Romney, Obozo, and Soros part. Romney has no power. He isn't IN congress, nor does he hold elective office. Obozo would like to be able to rid the planet of ALL Republicans (and Blue Dog Dems). Soros is just an AH who pulls Obozo's strings.
Yep, RINOs are a-holes. It is time for a new political party. Every election we have to continue settling for the next RINO in line as our candidate(s), the deeper the Marxist Rat anti-American agenda advances into permanent status in the nation.
It will began in 2014.
Rep. Lynn Westmoreland says the list was no factor.
If so, why doesn’t he release it?
Time for this hack to go, as well.
The beauty part of all this is: they have now fully exposed who they truly are and have always been. They are not even trying to hide this anymore.
Time for voters to take all the names and oust them, asap.
The more they talk on this the more ammunition we have, they are nothing more than the 2nd tier of the Democrat party.
No more time and not another dime for the GOP. Let someone else fund the Kabuki theater these traitors engage in.
Good to see the RINO’s are coming out of the closet. Now the Tea Party knows who they should target.
If the Republican leadership cannot even advance this simple argument in the face of Socialist tyranny, and they actively try to swat away those among their party who do, then what right do they have to ever speak for us again?
FR is deleting AH’s I see... Except in the article.
Indeed. The question I ask is did the founders intend that some Congressmen would be “more equal” than others? Why is it we have a system that puts one Congressman above all the rest? Was that part of the founding documents or just part of the political culture that has developed over 200 years?
I think the true Conservatives should form and join a new party RIGHT NOW, and offer to caucus with the Republicans. This would ensure a certain number of seats on these committees that Boehner, et. al., cannot get rid of. If there are enough true conservatives in the House who do this, the purging will stop because the alternative is Pelosi as Speaker. But the new party gets to be “kingmaker” if they do this. Then run new Conservative candidates under this party in 2014, then have Palin, West or someone similar as Presidential candidate in 2016.
You stole my bright idea. I posted the same thing. Create a third, conservative party and caucus with Republicans forcing them to change their policies and votes. It’s the only way.
Yeh they just were not willing to abandon their bedrock principles and cave in to the progressives in the GOP.
Historically, when this happens - it is because those disguised have achieved total power and full tyranny can commence unabated.
News of the zeitgeist being offered by Marxists such as Harry Belefonte and soon to be parroted by other Hollywierd Marxists and then the Obama media - suggesting Obama they should imprison anyone who stands in opposition to the current regime in power.
And of course with the purge of Conservatives in the GOP - Boehner and the Ruling Class Establishment will be glad to assist in such an effort. This is why the GOP is now simply the Judenrat for the MarxoFascists.
If Conservatives want to survive politically and eventually literally - they must run as far away from the Judenrat GOP as fast as possible - and prepare to defend themselves.
That’s a great idea, and excellent if only elections in the future were not going to be totally orchestrated by the MarxoFascist machine and the Judenrat GOP working with them.
That would be an only course to avoid Conservatives being purged to extinction... politically.
However, we are past the point of dealing with all of this politically.
But most are going to come to that understanding when it is far too late to do anything but walk to the boxcars for camps.
So Westmoreland believes he knows SO much better than the people who elected those reps?
The Founders had something to say about people like that.
They refused to play the Good Cop/Bad Cop game and cave to the commies in the end?
Good for these guys. For Republicans, the "system" is suppose to be the Constitution as it is written, and freedoms, and the liberties that go with it. The RINOs should have been purged instead, and the Conservatives lifted up on their empty pedestals.
Once again, the stupid party has it backwards.
Well, I’ve been thinking about it for a while! LOL INVAR made another point that the problems we have won’t be solved politically and I agree, but this might at least force some changes to be made in the political realm on a day-to-day basis that would be beneficial. It would certainly stop the purging of the conservatives from Republican committee membership.
Yep. I would not be surprised at all to see a democrat super majority in 2014 again.
They are now enboldened to do what ever they want, under the direction of their master Obama, as he is doing the same thing.
Because of this, I now feel it is way to late for us. We frogs knew it would happen but powerless to stop it. Always voting for the RIGHT person who will only be silenced if they try.
One more reason why my grandchildren will not have children. They know they will only suffer from all this evil. Sad, because they are of the "Makers club", not takers.
We are at WAR with both D's & R's now, never thought it would ever come to this.
Judging from the change you made, you have a clear idea.
Something about that statement makes me suspect of Romney and his campaign, (not just the voter fruad, voters staying home, etc), but the fact that he did not SMEAR Obama or FIGHT the fraud. THEN had his meeting with Obama, to get his payoff?
Why that meeting? What was necessary about it? Just to Cozy for me. I submit that he was planted to knock out the real winners in the primaries, then give up. JMO. The GOPe's helped him in VA and another state to keep Newt and who else off the ballots. Something is still not right about all that to me.
Which would make him part of the overall picture you describe.
They now also know they have to work VERY FAST to accomplish all they need to do, but alas, we will all still just simmer in that POT.
If the GOP is destined to be a minority, relatively irrelevant party nationally, it might as well be a conservative party. Dump the RINOs.
Yup, but all the FU (insert whatever initials you wish)'s are OK.
