I really hate the Republican Loser Party

This country is going to collapse and the GOPe is going to do nothing to even try and slow it down

Pathetic. I expected better from Bachmann especially.

The Republican Party no longer needs my vote, evidently, so it no longer has to have it.

It is truly time to think about forming a new party and dismantling the corrupt Grand Old Party.

No surprise.

They are Pubbies. They fold. That is what they do. It is their nature.

But hey, Boehner has promised to get tough with Obama, no more one-on-one meetings. Tough talk. Tough talk with no backbone.

==

Of course, now the 14 or so who showed some backbone will have 2 years of reprisals from the GOPe leadership. They will lose any status and positions they held.

Recount!

Seriously, did anyone think the outcome would be any different?

No matter the party,they all play Lucy to conservatives trying to kick the football down the field.

We are betrayed constantly.

It is time let the GOP Whig out, and have our own party, our own convention, our own candidates.

The proverbial handwriting has been on the wall for a long time.

Next cave: gun control, marriage and the debt ceiling. The Dems must be ecstatic.

Yes, along with everyone else that voted for Boner. I am finished the Republican Party. He is a cry baby, sorry excuse for a man, that lacks the spine to stand on conservative principles.

The deal Boehner & McConnell gave them seems to be that they will use the kenyan as cover to open the spending spigots. The lobbyist payola will flow generously to those who play ball.

General statement pointed to those who know it’s about them.

I recently accepted the fact that nothing The GOP do will stop a significant percentage of ‘conservatives’ from voting for them and calling it a good thing.

Nothing.

Every week brings a new affront to common sense and decency and every week, vocal supporters ride to defend it. In the MSM (interviews and such) and online.

Every cave in brings all new creative excuses. And when they cannot excuse the inexcusable, they fall back on the old timeworn saw, “We have nowhere else to go”.

Fine. Go there and sit silent while your country collapses with your help. Because when your country needed you in whatever small way to stand up for what was right, you chose what was popular.

Live with it. Because the rest of us are forced to.

That’s not what would have happened—she would not have got a majority of votes cast and there would have had to be another vote. (Unless some Dems bailed out Boehner, which is likely.)

The new Gun Laws will be just the begining. I expect Boehner to give Obama ever penny of Pork laden spending for Hurrican Sandy “Relief”. Immigration will be another big loss for the GOP.....Because they want the hispanic vote.

She always was. She, merely, used conservatives as her stepping stool. The big mouth is a deceiver. Didn’t you notice that in the primary when she lashed out at Perry and lied and didn’t touch the liberal Romney/the GOP choice? She was his loud mouth guard post. But don’t let on, she will be back to conservatives with her fork tongue when they need some buttering up to settle down and behave.

“FAIL”-Scott Garrett has just seen his last dime from this supporter. His Chair is clearly more important to him than his constituency. Doesn’t take long for DC to pollute even the most resolute conservatives. What a cesspool full of turds.

Oh Lord. Get a grip. She is one of the best in Congress. We need her and just because she voted for Boehner does not make her a traitor. Big woop. Nobody would have fought the tax increase. Hell even Paul Ryan voted for the mess. No wonder we are losing everything. You are a “zero tolerance” type....Mr. or Ms. Goodie Goodie who has to have their own way. Well grow up and start supporting conservatives like the GREAT Michele Bachmann who I hope and pray will be our President someday!!!!

If they ever want to get any legislation they sponsor to be voted on, they needed to vote for him.

Waiting Until the Last Minute is code............

If it looked like there was going to be close to enough support to put someone else in, i.e., a last minute surprise, they held out so they could make the difference.

This is making it clear that they support Boehner only because they have to; if any bona fide conservative had went for it, they would have supported them.

IMHO, the Repub party will be replaced and conservatives are going to jump ship.

We draw ever closer to the time when Congress will be financially forced into scaling back our military and all other spending starts getting all jammed up in shortfalls of cash.

The idea of hocking Treasuries to banks via the primary dealers is soon going to start making Treasuries seem like Greek bonds.

There are many conservative parties out there that individually don’t amount to much. But, IMHO, there will be a mass exodus from the Republican party upon a triggering event and many R’s will become C’s, temporarily creating a three party system. IMHO, the R party can’t survive that, will become impotent and fade away.

The R party will not win any more political battles, IMHO. They are not really centrist or liberal, and not really conservative.

The D party is simply a coalition of scams, but the R party centrists cave in too much to be able to form a reliable coalition with C’s - the C’s have no real reason any more to support R’s.

IMHO.

It is, indeed. If we wait too long, there won’t be time to build momentum before the next round. And I don’t want to hear about “guaranteeing the Dems will win”. How’d that work out for us last time?

There were five maybe six House seats (several in new districts in Arizona) which went to Democrats because third party candidates took away what should have been winning Republican margins. Redistricting in states, often by Democratic legislative majorities, or ordered by liberal judges, commonly gives Democrats an upfront advantage. When these races are close and a third party takes from Republican votes, the Rats most always prevail.

“She is one of the best in Congress. “

If that’s he case based solely on her actions here and in the primaries, then you have a pretty loose definition of ‘best.’

Because those actions are demonstratively destructive to conservatism.

She hired a megaRINO to ‘run’ her campaign and tank it.
She did nothing to blunt Romney’s BS against conservative values/candidates. Those are not the actions of a conservative. They are what a GOP ringer would do.

Disagree? Explain why. Actually don’t bother. You won’t convince me or anyone else willing to objectively judge someone by their actions.
