Conservatives Dissatisfied with Boehner, but Let's Keep Our Eye on the Ball

By Richard A. Viguerie -- 8/3/11

Tea Party and conservative movement activists, who created the House Republican majority that made John Boehner Speaker, once again feel betrayed by the Republican Speaker and his numbers in a recent CHQ poll show it – 79% of respondents say he should be replaced.

In the euphoria after the 2010 election, many could be forgiven for forgetting that in 2008 Boehner took the lead in strong arming reluctant Republicans into voting for the infamous TARP Wall Street bailout.  However, the honeymoon was clearly over when in his first months as Speaker of the House Boehner and Hal Rogers, the establishment big-spender he installed as Appropriations Committee Chairman, managed to shrink the Republicans' meaningful pledge to cut $100 billion in spending down to a $38 billion drop-in-the-bucket.

After the gimmicks and dubious spending cuts that make up the debt ceiling deal, it is little wonder that Tea Party and grassroots conservative activists are saying Boehner must go.

But let’s keep our eye on the ball.

While the mainstream media and the talking heads of the inside the Beltway elite congratulate Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on reaching a deal to spend another 2 trillion dollars, and batter Tea Party and grassroots conservatives as “extremists holding the government hostage,” they conveniently forget Tea Party and movement conservatives don’t control any branch of government – we are not even a “majority of the majority” in the House, let alone the Senate.

The failure in leadership that let the opportunity to enact real structural changes in Washington’s spending culture slip away – at least for now – is a reminder that the November 2010 election was not about electing more Republicans.  It was about electing conservatives committed to limited, constitutional, government – if we keep our eye on that goal for 2012 and beyond, our John Boehner and Mitch McConnell problems will be solved.

Dog and Pony Show

Yet another dog and pony show by our U.S. congress. Their Made for TV Political Drama called "The Sky is Falling If We Do Not Make a Deal" is no more serious than is TV wrestling. It is time to create a 2nd party in the USA to Challenge the Big Government Spenders who are all of One Mind but call themselves Democrats and Republicans for Voting Purposes. In the end, these 2 parties are one and the same. The only thing that changes when one or the other party is in or out is the rhetoric which is interchangeable.

Boehner

Our country and our system of government today is 180 degrees out of synch with how the Constitutional Government was founded, written and adhered to in the days when American was on the Rise to Become the Most Prosperous, Most Powerful Country that has ever existed.   And, over the past 45 years or so, this Entire Country and it's Economic Prosperity and Growth of the Middle Class has been Totally Stopped and is now Dead In It's Tracks along with the Death of the Constitution and Constitutional Law.  We, the People have a Right and The Responsibility to Correct this 180 degree departure from the Constitution and from Growth and Prosperity and Strength of our nation.

If a person is elected because of TP and votes against what they were eleced for I do not believe there should not be any consequences. If you do not make them responsible for their actions they will not represent the people who elected them. This is what we call the Republician party of 2011. Keep the faith and excuse anyone who makes a mistake In their projected values. These folks are RINOS & CINOS. Every Republician who voted for this debt increase needs to face a primary including Boehner &Cantor.If not the TP loses the movement and will be history because they lost there principals. Once that happens it is all over and the establishment WINS.
