It’s not defeatist to recognize repeating the same losing strategy is a bad game plan.

Why would they vote to ban guns? They don’t have to fear from the voters, do they?

McCain was right. We have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency. It is a Republican congress we should fear.

The myth is that the GOP is involved in some fight-it isn't.

They got the Defense budget they wanted and raised taxes, the thing that the Democrats wanted.

Neither Party is concerned about shrinking the size of Government.

An attempt to continue the illusion that Bachmann is a conservative while acting like a GOP RINO.

"I guess Bachmann is a RINO now.

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 only reason - and I mean ONLY reason - that Bachman voted for Boehner is that at the last moment she saw he was going to win and wanted to keep or get any committee/hold any committee positions.

In other words, by voting for Boeher, she might have felt that it would maybe make her safer from being ostracized and she thought she could do the best part of Republicans there.

I know - I'm a dreaming idiot.

I don't trust any R's now except for the ones who voted against Boehner and I'm not even sure I buy any of their reasons either.

I wish I could say it would probably been better to put Nazi Pelosi in charge, then the Marxist dems would own it all.

Thing is, the MSM would still tell the sheeple the GOP was running things.

Face it, short of a mass uprising, the US as we know it is dead and gone.

There no longer is any pathway to freedom, the ballot box is dead as we are, it has been compromised and nobody has the guts to stop this.

It was painful to watch... even comical at times. Reelect the weakest, lamest duck. Sheeeesh.

It may have been comical to WATCH but I find no comedy in electing a Weeper that is incapable of stopping the debt ceiling from being raised, no power to stop another CR in March, no power to stop more national debt from being racked up, no power to enforce a "REAL" reduction in Fed spending, no power to stop illegal aliens from being turned into RAT voters, no power to stop the gun grabbers, and basically no power to stand up to Zero on anything.

And to anyone who believes this Drudge headline today,
"Tells GOP he's done dealing with Obama... "
is living in a liberal fantasy-land.

Based on his positions I would LOVE to rally behind him. Had all the ‘conservatives’ taken their heads out of the fantasy of the GOP and voted like conservatives, he, or a person like him might be in a position to help fix this mess.

But it was Romney or bust and any opposing were ‘traitors to America’. And I hope all the Romney supporters choke on the reality. Because they got exactly what they asked for. FAILURE.

"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.

That's kind of what I've been thinking. IMHO, too.

What kind of legislation do you think we would have had if PELOSI or WASSERMAN-Schmuck had been Speaker??


We already have dems running the House. The key parts of the senate fiscal cliff bill were written by dems and presented to the house 3 minutes before they voted on it.

It’s over and the “conservatives” in Congress are looking out for #1. We should also.

Simple math tells me the majority of Pubbie Reps voted for Bonehead. Here's a list of updates that say who did NOT vote for him, or who voted for Pelousy:

UPDATE 1:
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), one of the four congressmen “purged” by Boehner, just voted for Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) as speaker.

UPDATE 2:
Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) just voted for Cantor.

UPDATE 3:
Tea Party favorite Allen West, who lost his reelection to Congress, just got a vote for Speaker. (That's GA R Rep. Paul Broun)

UPDATE 4:
Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) votes for Colin Powell. That’s the second Democrat to defect from Pelosi.

UPDATE 5:
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) gives Allen West his second vote for speaker. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) abstained.

UPDATE 6:
Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), another purged congressman, votes for Rep. Jim Jordan, the head of the Republican Study Committee.

UPDATE 7:
Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) votes for David Jones, the former GAO comptroller. Yes, that’s pretty random.

UPDATE 8:
Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) abstains. That’s four Republican abstentions and six defections from Boehner.

UPDATE 9:
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) votes Amash for Speaker. Both Massie and Amash are acolytes of retired Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX).

Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC) a Blue Dog Democrat, defected from Pelosi.

Hope this helps you for now.

I’m not sure how we can accomplish that task with the same man who along with Mitt Romney stole defeat from the jaws of victory.

Tradition, good judgement, and prinsable demanded that we replace John with someone else. Not continue with his failed leadership.

I find myself wondering if it is their objective to have what we have a half hearten stalemate, to ignore logic and reasoning.

Bachman. Ryan. Rubio. Nothing but over rated RINOs. Just like Chris Christie. They all wore the conservative drab for a time, but proved to us that they are on the take and principle means nothing to them. They have betrayed the Tea Party by supporting a cheese eating surrender monkey.

How profound. You should remove Conservative from your name and replace it with Republican if you like Boehner so much. There are few congressmen that remain as conservative Republicans. That's why they won't get my money or support.

Boehner got picked again because there was no alternative. Pelosi would be a worse disaster.

Huh? Are you that naive? Are you part of the GOP-e machine? Boehner has more often than not strongly side with those who push Tyranny.

Anyone who can view objective reality can easily see that Boehner is an enemy of Liberty.

Boehner has shown himself to be 100% of the side of those who worship at the Alter of State Power.

I agree with much of that. But that’s the problem. conservatives are like cats and won’t unite. Although the field wasn’t very strong perry, newt, santorum would have been far preferable to romney. Yes they had weaknesses and none of them were pure. But we are a long way from pure. We are down into deep RINO turd.

Our only hope of defeating RINOs like boehner and romney is to unite around conservative alternative candidates. Nine house members voted for six different alternative candidates to boehner. Pathetic.

Yeah blame the voters. It has worked so well in the past. How dare people expect a candidate representative of their values to vote for in a representative government.

When that doesn't work, please switch to the next Stupid Party talking point of 'we need a bigger tent' and tell us all the rest of the values we can cave to.

When all else fails call everyone a liberal because they refuse to support liberal pandering members of the Stupid Party.

Conservatives couldn’t even pick between santorum and gingrich and helped get romney in.

Wrong! Conservatives picked Newt. Those against Newt picked santorum, the one who is KNOWN for taking one for the team/GOP. They learned nothing and,thus are not unteachable. The reason why santorum didn't drop out was to prevent Newt from winning against THE TEAM/GOP/Romney.
