Mark Levin goes NUCLEAR: ┬"Who the hell does Boehner think he is?┬"

#1  He removed Tim Huelskamp (KS). Huelskamp is one of the good ones.

#2  The people seemed to be getting rolled again. The Tea Party helped deliver the House to the Pubs in 2010. It seems like Boehner is trying to purge the party of tea party members who are in any leadership positions. It looks like he is trying to get rid of opposition to a "deal" with Obama. This deal will not bode well for citizens. The Rinos and the Progressives are the ruination of this country. They will financially break this country.

We have a system that is basically a two-party system. Third parties don't do well. Ross Perot did about as well as any third party candidate could do in 1992 but his candidacy basically split off votes from the Pubs. He got about 19M+; about 1/2 as many as either the Donks or Pubs. The Libertarians don't ever show up in big numbers. There were large numbers of eligible voters who did not vote in the last election--probably a larger number than voted for either party. Who are they and what do they stand for? Could they be a part of a new third party such as the Constitutional Party or some such name? If they won, what could they do to upset the existing power structure and preserve this country? I'm about sick of either party as they don't seem to represent anyone in terms of the Constitution.

#3  You don't have to agree with everything he said, but Alvin Toffler sure got it right when he said, a long time ago, that the US has ONE political party - the DemoPublican party...

#4  The establishment Republicans are at war with the Tea Party. We are a threat to their power. They don't mind being in the minority, but they hate primary challenges.
Posted by: Iblis || 12/05/2012 16:47 Comments || Top||

#5  Boehner caves on this then not only is he getting primary challenged, there might be a vote for a new Speaker.

#6  I listened to this on the way home...good stuff by Levin.
Posted by: Broadhead6 || 12/05/2012 21:57 Comments || Top||

#7  No money for the RNC. Only for individual candidates

#8  How did Boehner get into this position in the first place? Can anyone answer that? 2010 was a TeaParty/Conservative success story and not carrying through on that in 2012 was our collective loss. (In addition to massive voter fraud IMO).

#9  what you are seeing is the breakdown of ties between the Republicans and the Tea Party. I always thought that the Tea Party should have developed their own platform and stayed as a third party. It would have slowed their progress, but given them more independence. I think that they got sucked into whatever backroom deals the Republicans offered - because their leadership was greedy or naive. Or both. Now they discover that once the Republicans see them as a liability - they can get the boot.

And so goes Washington DC ...
Gridlocked.
No solutions.

#1  That's from The Onion, right? Right?

#2  Seeking input from his economic intellectual peers I see.
Posted by: Whiskey Mike || 12/05/2012 7:53 Comments || Top||

#3  Ah yes... the brain trust of the Democratic party.
Posted by: CrazyFool || 12/05/2012 8:03 Comments || Top||

#4  The Crook in Chief knows the heist he is pulling off. Just working with the propaganda machine to find right spin to put out there to make taking money from the people who work a success.
Posted by: Voldemort Grereth1352 || 12/05/2012 8:42 Comments || Top||

#5  First Tim Geithner; now Rev. Al Sharpton and Rachel Madcow. Who's next on the list of people who don't know much about economic policy?
Posted by: JohnQC || 12/05/2012 9:16 Comments || Top||

#6  Special Ed Schultz and crazy Larry were there as well.

Maybe we could get Crazy Larry to challenge to fight Paul Ryan like he did Tagg Romney

#7  When I want advice on tax rates, I want to talk to known tax cheats (Big Al) & avowed socialists (Fightin' Larry O')...
Posted by: Raj || 12/05/2012 10:25 Comments || Top||

#8  Bush used to invite talk show hosts that were conservative to the white house. This is pretty consistant behavior.

#9  Birds of a feather "voter revenge". Ho hum.
Posted by: Besoeker on the road again || 12/05/2012 11:25 Comments || Top||

#10  Why not Louie Farrakan while he's at it. Smarter than Sharpton!
