A 3rd Party vote is simply a protest vote. I am done voting GOP.

I understand the frustration. Just be aware that voting 3rd party will elect more democraps and get ready for more socialism, more free stuff, higher taxes, devalued dollar, gun control, abortions on demand paid by tax payers, open borders for more importing more democrap voters, etc etc.

We are already headed that way any way. Electing more democraps will just hasten the process. If that makes you relieve your frustrations, I can understand it also.

Agreed, but not as much as the enemy within. A conservative house could have kept a lot of this from happening. The leadership is a disgrace. They allowed Holder to escape, Clinton to dodge, and Reid to intimidate. Now they have allowed this tax increase by voting for a bill they did not read. Not my kind of people.

When you consider the GOPe defitiion of a republicans, it was clear that I was the RINO. Left the party 2 years ago. It was the day Boehner was elected house speaker and started tearing up. Phony as a 3 dollar bill.

Boehner and company are the republicans. The conservatives that still have an (R) beside their name are the RINOs.

The Speaker of every legislature has power over the individual members in Washington and at state capitols.

A former Speaker of Florida’s House happens to be a guy named Marco Rubio.

I have stated that over 90 percent of the Republicans we elect have no principles. I am more convinced of that than ever.

So, even without these three voting for Bonehead, he still had a majority of votes, so all the pointless bashing of these three is ridiculous. They could have voted present, and Bonehead would have won. They could have voted for Pelosi, and Bonehead would have won.

This looks like resigning one’s self to the realization that Bonehead was going to be speaker regardless, so they pretty much had to get on board or lose their influence.

A total impossibility. With 217 required to “win” and not enough Dems to get that number she’d need GOP votes and wasn’t going to get any.

But enough votes to keep Cry-baby from getting 217 would just create another vote. These so-called conservatives proved to be cowards yet again.

What happens to “conservatives” and “Tea Part Conservatives” once they get to Washington? They all seem to cave.

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!!!!

You need your prescription refilled. Quit worshipping at the alter of pretend conservatives who NEVER back up their rhetoric. Oh, btw, Santa Claus isn't real either.

At least if it were Pelosi we could put her name on everything bad that’s going to happen to this nation from this point on.

With the exception of ObamaCare you would be startled at the list of democrat accomplishments under Boehner compared to Nancy Pelosi.

And give this guy a call: 1-800-618-PHIL. A very conservative talk show host out of Nashville and syndicated. He tried to work with Bachmann and her staff when SHE wanted help in the primary.

She promised this and that and never deliverd. Come on his show...never did. Have him introduce her at a rally in Nashville...she cancelled and had a private fundraiser instead.

He said her staff were rude, liars and accused him of lying and trying to stab her in the back. Phil said it was like dealing with 7 year olds.

Conservatives have been relegated to bystander status and both parties could not be happier. K Street will signify its approval shortly.

I said in 2010 and no one responded after the election the Tea Parties focus should have been exposing K-Street for what it is, who they are, their goodies in the tax code and shutting them down...

No one gets it, other than me and maybe Steve Forbes...

Thanks. You made my point! According to you santorum is not even a conservative. I don’t buy it but I sort of understand where you are coming from. I never liked santorum either.

And then some santorum fans might say that since newt cheated on his wife, posed with pelosi and was a global warming nut then certainly newt is no conservative. I was a newt supporter but there is no question newt has baggage. One can whittel away at the conservative credentials of just about everyone that ran.

So there you have it. Conservatives didn’t split the vote because no pure “conservatives” even ran. So since conservatives didn’t even run for president then what are we complaining about? :-). Gotta laugh at some of this crap.

That’s because both parties work for the K-Street Money Changers. It does not matter which party is in charge, the K-Streeters get their Huge cut either way

Then our energies must shift.

We must make K-Street is money and influence the pariah that it is, we can only shame them, and those that deal with them.

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.

Bachmann voted for Boehner?
Paul Ryan voted for Boehner?

Well then, according to the Collective Wizdumb of FR's venerable Drum Corps of Whiners Blamers Moaners Handwringers and Fingerpointers, Rep. Ryan and Rep. Bachmann and the 220 or so others who voted for Boehner, must immediately be drummed out of the ranks of True Conservatives, have "RINO" permanently affixed to their foreheads with hot branding irons, and be consigned to the lowest level of RINO Hell with bus treads all over their bodies.

The only task remaining is to whip up a list of those Certified Patriotic Republicans who voted against Boehner, and pick one to be our standard bearer. This shouldn't take very long at all, since there are only nine (9) of them:

Ah! What an illustrious list. Every single name is no doubt instantly recognizable to those who pay even the least amount of attention to politics, due to their extremely high name recognition. Yes indeed.

Everyone not on that list gets thrown under the bus! So c'mon, hurry up and state your choice before the voting ends.

Rove helped her first get elected to Congress.

She was in the 2012 race as a ‘conservative’ spoiler for Palin and vote splitter for Romney, the last thing they wanted was for her to take in money with Rove’s grubby prints on it.

It’s sad reading the majority of replies on this thread. It simply illustrates the fact that most here, either refuse to accept it or have no comprehension of what time it is.

The bewilderment over Bachman; the repeated calls to ‘primary’ the Ruling Class Judenrat to the MarxoFascists; the continued strategizing and worrying over elections in 2014 and 16; continued advocation of voting for a party proven to be nothing more than spineless, self-serving sellouts to tyrants.

The National Socialists have achieved total power folks. The Ruling Class and all in the halls of D.C. know what time it is. They are going to do whatever it takes to share in the power as it will be wielded, or be run out of power by their own. Some even in talk radio appear to be resigned to acknowledging reality here.

As for the rest of us - we’re having pretty yellow labels sewn for us by the Regime and it’s media that they are slapping on our lapels. The hatred against such targets is being stoked by this regime for acceptance by the populace. Calls to kill and treat Conservatives and gun owners as terrorists is being promoted in the mainstream. The punishments, criminalization’s and eventual genocide against us is in the ‘initiate’ phase, make no mistake. That is why the massive push for gun confiscations and bans is being rushed on through - just like ObamaCare was.

And like the budget deal - the legislation will arrive right as the votes are being cast and no one will read what is inside, total criminalization with massive punishment for anyone caught not complying with surrendering their god-granted rights.

Don’t kid yourself and wave that notion off. History speaks to what is taking place here.

I only read one person here who spoke words that indicate to me that he gets it: he’s in survival mode.

We ALL should be in survival mode and ready to defend ourselves from what is coming.

There ARE no more elections to win, we have already been transformed into a National Socialist Welfare Party run by overt MarxoFascists. What they need to establish total and complete rule over us - is violence and bloodshed and chaos to create empty shelves and a populace willing to trade every birthright they have, for the promise of bread.

That my FRiends is what is happening right in front of your face.

So I guess if it comforts you to delude yourself into strategizing the next election and what party to join - I see no difference in that than simply digging a hole to bury your head in.

Know what time it is.

For assuredly our enemies know the time, because they are acting on it.

When did I ever mention the constitution party? I said our own party, a party for conservatives.

The key here is "our own party". Because that is what will happen when each of us insists on the Highest Standards of Purity in our chosen political party --- we will realize that the only way to be completely true to ourselves is for each of us to create and play in our own POOP (Party Of One Person). We must refuse to associate politically with anyone whose entire set of political stands doesn't exactly match our own.

For example: Does your wife agree with you 100% on immigration, gun rights, taxes, govt spending, gay marriage, Big Govt, Big Labor, Big Green, defense, capital punishment, and the Constitution? But she mistakenly believes life begins at implantation while you know it begins minutes earlier at fertilization, making you more ProLife than her? Then NO WAY can she be allowed to join your Very Own Political Party Of One and dilute its purity! She must file papers to establish her own POOP.

Remember those ancient words of wisdom:
"Have you ever noticed how anyone who drives slower than you is a jerk, and anyone who drives faster than you is a maniac?"
That is soooooo true! Nobody else drives exactly like you do, therefore you're the only Pure Driver in the world; and never forget that! This same valuable lesson applies to Political Purity as well.

"United We Fall, Divided We Stand."

If you are willing to surrender your core principles for political expedience, and then suggest those who refuse to capitulate theirs are a worse evil than those in whom we are opposed, then your party and the nation are no longer worth saving or exerting any effort for us to save because you are compatriots with tyrants.

Blackburn looked so strong the other day when a reporter was asking her questions as she was walking along.

She was asked about supporting Obama’s agenda/bills and she said *we sent two bills to the senate, they need to vote on them* (paraphrased)

Our political system is such a sham, anything Reid doesn’t like he won’s allow a vote on.

They would look bad when a good bill is defeated.

So the republicans cave to Reid, the senate, and Obama.

And the other in that foursome, Boehner.

The republicans should have said that they won’t act on any bill messed over by Obama and Reid until the ones they sent to the senate are voted on.

You’re right. Bachmann may have been blackmailed, threatened with smear if that didn’t work, and, if she still resisted, her family may have been threatened with blackmail or violence. Where would she go?—Obama’s FBI? Let’s get real: the world’s smartest and most ruthless thieves cannot resist a trillion dollars, and there is no independent (Hoover) FBI to do anything about it. It is an ego trip to think you’re smarter than the most powerful people on earth. They are not boneheads or bungling, fumbling fools who just need your insight. They have not failed to notice something you noticed—they are aware of much more than you! Our brilliant logical analyses are not beyond the grasp of the world’s most powerful people and their legions of brilliant employees. The Congress is not stupid; they are either compromised or wicked. Levin-like angry advice is allowing our egos to make ostriches of us. Unspeakable amounts of money and the crime they attract is the actual problem facing us. Hope springs eternal, and I can hope and wish, too. I just want to think realistically.

there is no question newt has baggage.

Can you tell me the baggage that others have? When Newt is brought up, it's followed with baggage. Propaganda sure works! And the same response from some when Palin is brought up and they are too dumb to see the correlation on what they themselves are saying. It all depends how brainwashed they allowed themselves to be and those who swear it's their thought.

A known backstabber to voters/our country compared to Newt? Santorum supporters had no idea what else he was involved with - they didn't care to know. But they could give a play by play of Newt's life. It was all by design and conservatives fell for it.

How many couches did romney and santorum sit on with liberals that you NEVER saw? Who are the ones who has unfaithful to our country? And who is the one who has the Constitution runs through his veins? Amazing how reality is what the media makes it to be - and it's devoured by some.

Just a thought....... anyone consider that no one wants the speakers job? I can’t imagine a more miserable, thankless job than Boehner’s. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t and all the while having to deal with reprobates like Obama, the MSM and the entire Democrat party.

You want a “good” speaker? Elect a good president and good senate. In this poisonous political environment, the best we can hope for is obstructionism.

I’d suggest we get busy right now working on the 2014 elections.

Sheesh - this thread is a living example of extreme Normalcy Bias gone airborne and infecting nearly everyone reading and breathing.

It’s look to your own time and prepare to defend what little liberty you got left with the means enshrined as a God-ordained Right that the MarxoFascists with help from the Judenrat GOP will abolish in the very, very near future.

We’re past the point of elections. They are theater to disguise the shell game of absolute single-party dictatorial rule we are already under.

The willful delusion here is absolutely astounding.

I now know EXACTLY how it was an entire people allowed themselves to walk into boxcars for camps and death. They REFUSED to allow their minds to grasp what time it was - EVEN when the tyrants TOLD them point-blank what they were going to do.

Same deal here.

It’s time to look to your own defense - because this nation is under enemy occupation and was overthrown in a velvet coup from within and from help of a Judenrat GOP who knows where the power is going to lie, and will do anything to share in it.

Even if it means betraying the very people and principles that allowed them to get into power to begin with.

The fact that Michelle was one of the votes absolutely breaks my heart.

Garrett is my Congressman, he is Chairman of Subcommittee on Capital Markets, he's been in office since 2003; he's more senior than Michele, in office since 2007.

Michele is REALLY an outsider; she probably needs to be a little nicer in order to not be completely out in the cold. If you remember, the RNC did not back her, basically, in her last election.

Perhaps Garrett has enough political capital to be able to make a "quiet statement" on this vote.

ah. a voice of sanity. i wonder if anyone is going to wait for her and other tea party leaders explanation for their votes before tarring and feathering. no wonder bachmann lost in the primaries. most of the people here lothe her.

i like bachmann and i still like her. i imagine there was just no other viable choice at the end of the day/vote except boehner. too bad.
