I guess Bachmann is a RINO now..
We’re screwed every which way from Sunday!
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.
It was painful to watch... even comical at times.
Reelect the weakest, lamest duck. Sheeeesh.
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.
I think it was to prevent Pelosi from becoming Speaker again!
Bachman has betrayed the Tea Party. Like Fredo, she is dead to me.
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.
The Democrats must be happy.
General statement pointed to those who know its 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.
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.
I am not surprised.
Others and present = 15.
Time to switch registration to ‘Independent’...I’ll be voting for Constitution Party candidates from here on...I’ve read their platform, and it is as close to conservative as anything out there.
“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.
I don’t think anyone else really wants the title right now.
Republicans are de facto leaderless.
The Speaker is walking in now and looks like he is about to cry. Lord, help us.
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.
I may have been wrong about Newt this past election, but I was RIGHT about that harpy Bachmann.
What little trust I have left for “conservative” politicians is rapidly eroding.
