Republicans Need New Leadership
To understand why conservatives across the fruited plain are fed up with, not only Obama and the far-left, but with Congressional Republicans as well, one need look no farther than the "leadership" of Speaker of the House, John Boehner. He is indicative of what is wrong with our government on so many levels.
His latest outrage is the completely asinine statement of "not ruling out" support for a balanced budget amendment which doesn't limit federal spending. This is typical inside-the-beltway politicking at its very worst. It plays right into the hands of Democrats in that, despite calling it "balanced", leaves open tax hikes on everything in sight to get to a "balance". Boehner has shown himself to be every bit the slippery politician as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or any of the others who talk out of both sides of their mouth. At least with Reid and Pelosi you don't have to guess at their ideological agenda. They are far-left and proud of it. Boehner, and many other members of the GOP in Congress, are more despicable because they claim to stand for conservative principles, while compromising them at every turn.
Conservatives need to primary as many of these RINO's as possible with authentic conservative thinkers. In addition, conservatives in Congress need to remove Boehner from his position as Speaker, install a true conservative into that post, elevate other conservatives to the leadership positions, minimizing the influence of the weak-kneed, status quo, liberal wing of the GOP.
