Tea Party steps up war of words against Boehner over budget vote

Tea party activists are pushing back hard against Speaker John Boehner for attacking conservative groups that are opposed to bipartisan budget legislation approved this week by the House, claiming he has “declared war on the Tea Party” with his blunt criticism.

In a fundraising email to supporters, Tea Party Patriots referred to the Ohio Republican as a “ruling class politician” who only pretends to be a conservative while remaining a “tax-and-spend liberal,” The Hill reported Friday.

The group, which supported efforts to defund the Affordable Care Act, accused Boehner of passing a “back-room budget deal which increases discretionary spending, does nothing to reform entitlements, and fully funds ObamaCare.”

The organization called the deal “an out and out betrayal of the American people.”

All three top Republican leaders were among 169 members of the rank and file in voting for the measure, which cleared the House on Tuesday on an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 332-94.

    The Tea Party is not a political party, it is an idea,a way of life. We can not be defeated. There is a ground swell in this country for us to get back to a limited government, lower taxes and to our Constitutional heritage. Boehner, liberals, socialists, communists can all attack us and it will have no impact and will not stop what is coming down the road.
    The Constitution- combined with the strength of our people, with personal integrity,with individual responsibility, and with the traditions of home and family, has permitted us to enjoy unprecedented freedom and prosperity and has servrd as a model for countless other governments formed by FREEDOM loving people around the world.
    “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land-nor, perhaps, the sun and stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. The chart is the Constitution.” —-Daniel Webster
    We the people are coming.

    Tea party pundits never let reality undermine their simple-minded rhetoric.

    For most of Obama’s tenure in office as POTUS, the Republican leadership’s concept of compromise — a key component of any meaningful negotiation — has been for the opposition to discard their own beliefs and completely embrace the conservative point of view.

    In short, their notion of negotiation has involved capitulation by the opposition­. The source of this unwillingness to find middle ground have been the tea party-affiliated Republicans in Congress who firmly regard any willingness to compromise to be a character flaw.

    Negotiation and compromise are not in their repertoire — to the wholly dogmatic ideologues of the tea party, “It’s our way or the highway”. Anything less is regarded as an act of treason.

    Irony — Boehner is now under attack by the tea party monster that he helped to nurture for the past several years.

      So, let me get this straight labman, you are saying the Tea Party is not facing reality when they don’t cave to socialistic agendas, and try to bring back what our founding fathers intended our Republic to be?

      Are you willing to compromise your freedoms for a totalitarian government?
      And as far as rhetoric goes, that is all any of the current politicians (republican/democrat) have spewed.

      And you say that the Tea Party-affiliated Republicans regard any willingness to compromise as a character flaw. I wouldn’t refer to it as a character flaw; just a WILLINGNESS to allow our great country to fall to socialistic/communistic ideology. And how do you compromise with a party that doesn’t want to compromise (democrat)? You neglect to mention the fact every time a suggestion by the Republican party was made, the Democratic party refused to negotiate! Talk about “My Way, or the Highway!!” And any ideology which is antithetical to The Constitution, IS TREASON!! Any ideology that supports caving to tactics which undermine FREEDOM, sets our country up to fall to socialism/communism, IS TREASON!!! I could imagine what would have happened if our Founding Fathers had COMPROMISED!
      Labman, you are very eloquent in your writing, but it is very evident you have been educated within the current system of what I refer to as: “Saul Alinskyism”.
      And furthermore I feel the Tea Party really needs to expand it’s scope to more than government, and venture into moral and ethical values. Just saying.

  • Anthony Butler says:

    When I signed up for the Republican party, many years ago, Boehner wasn’t part of the deal.
    I want him gone.

  • awegweiser says:

    Good to see that Boehner (finally) found the balls to stand up to the people who brought much of the government to a halt, cost $27 Billion and inflicted hardship on millions of people. Such a cruel, mean and heartless act must never be permitted to occur again. As deficient as it may be, the bipartisan budget agreement at least puts such a devastating crisis off for a good while. Merry Chanukka, Happy Christmas and Joyous Kwanza to all.

      Sad to see what a moronic liberal left winger you really ARE.
      You spew BS and hate just like Pelosi and the other left winger liberals who are full of Donkey Dung.
      Now trot off back to the liberal stable for trolls.

        And just what good will toward men holiday do you celebrate, Pam?

    War of words, how about war of action. It is time – Molon Labe! Stop the talk, get on with what needs to be done. Talk is cheap so are words. Actions accomplish results. Destroy political correctness and the race card.

  • CTH says:

    I still think his name is being misspelled as it is really Bonehead.

  • Jack says:

    Further proof that establishment poiiticians are desperate ro preserve there positions of power and maintain the status quo, the country be damned. Time for time limits and doing away with career politicians.

  • Charles Kimberl says:

    Boehner is definitely a RINO. It’s long past time to get rid of him.
