in other words, they didn't play nicely with others, and "go along to get along", so now they can just go.

He may be right about there being an AH factor, just not the way he thinks.

Boehner could have added himself to that list then, along with a few others.

Concur totally.

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.

I say:
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.

"...they just don’t want to work within the system.”

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.

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.
