#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.

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

#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 ...
No solutions.
