Not quite two weeks removed from Thanksgiving, it is worth giving thanks to John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy. I really am thankful for them.

Yesterday the three of them purged fiscal conservatives from committees as punishment for being authentically fiscal conservatives. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina was put on the Financial Services Committee to show fiscal conservatism had nothing to do with removing Congressmen Justin Amash and David Schweikert, but that just causes me to question Mick Mulvaney’s conservative bona fides now.

Congressmen Schweikert, Amash, and Congressman Tim Huelskamp now removed from the Budget Committee, have been punished for daring to defy John Boehner during the debt ceiling fight, etc. They pointed out what would happen with John Boehner’s deal. They were the Cassandras of the fiscal cliff, predicting we’d be exactly where we are and they voted against getting us here.

They have now been punished.

On the same day John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy punished fiscal conservatives for standing up for their convictions, they sold out their own convictions by agreeing to raise taxes by $800 billion. They intend to seem reasonable to the press in negotiations with the White House. They’re going through an elaborate kabuki dance, but they’ll get blamed nonetheless.

Pointing their fingers as fiscal conservatives now punished, casting them out as scape goats, will do nothing to woo the media or the White House, but we should be thankful. We should absolutely be thankful for these three men.

As the sun rises this morning we can look at John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy and know the opposition is not just across the aisle, but in charge of our own side in the House of Representatives. All the time and energy I would otherwise have to spend to convince conservatives that these gentlemen would be a problem for the GOP has been spared. They’ve proven it themselves.

And now is a time for choosing for Congressman Scalise. He said he wanted to work with leadership. He said he wanted to move closer. Leadership has now signaled that it has no interest in working with conservatives without compromising not just tactics, but principles.

If Congressman Scalise sells out conservatives in the House to work with House leadership who’ve just sold out their own principles in the name of looking reasonable, conservatives will need to find a new home outside the Republican Study Committee.

In the meantime, Freedomworks, Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth, Heritage Action for America, Madison Project, Concerned Women of America, Susan B. Anthony, Gun Owners of America, etc. etc. etc. must start working hard immediately to find quality candidates to challenge incumbent Republicans. These three men and Karl Rove over at Crossroads are going to work hard to stop conservatives though.

Conservatives must seek retribution or become the paper tiger John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy just declared them to be.

Saw that on Fox Business and it supprised me. I always knew we would have to give a little but now it's looking like we are the ONLY ONES GIVING, the democrats are NEVER going to make any cuts at all.

This whole thing was a GOP set-up. It was recognized as such at the time but the GOP, in it's obsession with getting long with dems agreed to this suicide pact.
Either way, the dems win this. There is no "win" for the GOP.

The GOP needs to just walk away and let it happen.

I fully agree it just needs to happen but then the democrats will blame it all on the GOP and Obama will control both Houses after the next election.

They have and always WILL blame the results of their policies on their enemies.

The stupid, the weak and the dependent will believe it as they always do.

The rest of us will see the truth through the lies.

This really IS the most transparent administration in history. We can see EXACTLY what they are doing.

There's enough truth seers out there. Let them play their games. Its' not going to play out in their favor in the end.

I agree again BUT we still REELECTED him. Has enough people NOT stayed home in certain states he would never have won.

The republicans just never learn; no matter how many times they concede, cave, and try to be liked by the (D)onkeys, they just get their teeth kicked down their throat.

And then they do it again.

A 3 year old learns pretty quickly about right and wrong, and being taken advantage of. It speaks volumes that the republicans can't grasp simple facts as well as a 3 year old.

Bman,
That is because the GOP has been taken over and run by progressive republicans for quite a while.

They desire the power that comes from larger government.

The GOP still uses the "smaller Government" line in advertising but craps on real conservatives who actually want to increase our freedom and shrink government.

I am forever amazed that some of you are amazed at Boehner, Cantor, McCain, and the like.

They are Progressives

Republican Progressives, which to say isn't quite as Socialistic as the Fabian Socialist Democratic Progressives, but they are (to quote Glenn Beck) Progressive Lite.

You guys have got to start watching Glenn Beck, reading Michelle Malkin, and listening to Monica Crowley and Michael Savage.

Very few others have the cujones to call these people what they truly are.

Amen, amen, and amen.

We Conservatives have absol;utely got to get off the GOP teat.
They have sold their souls to the #1 god of politics--get re-elected at all costs. The only way to do that is to become one with the system, and the only way to do that is to feed at the teat of the government, and support IT at all costs.

Re-election and big government are self serving, coexisting entities that cannot survive without each other.

REAL term limits.

SMALLER Federal government

MORE POWER to the States.

A good place to start.
