The only person more damaging to the GOP than Obama, apparently is Boehner. He got us into one heck of a pickle with his “negotiating” us into this fiscal cliff. The savant in essence, has given Obama the keys to the destruction of what is left of the GOP. No matter which way this goes down, the GOP will be blamed. More of us are getting the sinking feeling that leaping off the side of the mountain is exactly what Obama wants. He gets huge tax increases and finishes off the military and the GOPers are blamed. What could be better. Better yet, it will divide the GOP. We will pick off each other in one massive blame game. One might think this was bad enough, but hang on. It apparently gets even better. If this story is true, and apparently it is, then we will indeed found our Brutus. Boehner would not even be where he is if not for conservatives and all the effort made two years ago, as well as maintaining the majority this recent past election. He must be tickled pink that the Florida GOP managed to district out Allen West into oblivion. Here we go:
House Republican leaders used a secret criteria list to decide which conservatives to purge from powerful House committees, Breitbart News has learned. As this time, it appears they will keep the criteria list hidden from the public, too. Spokespeople for members of House GOP leadership have refused to discuss details about the list on the record with press.
In remarks to the Heritage Foundation’s Bloggers Briefing on Tuesday, Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp confirmed the existence of such a list.
Huelskamp was one of four conservative Republicans that GOP leadership removed from committees on which they’d have the ability to affect fiscal policy. He and Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash were pulled from the House Budget Committee and Reps. David Schweikert of Arizona and Walter Jones of North Carolina got yanked off the House Financial Services Committee.
Amash, who joined Huelskamp at the Heritage Foundation event on Tuesday, said nobody in leadership even informed him of the move. “We haven’t even been told officially that I’ve been removed from the Budget Committee,” Amash said. Full story over at Breitbart
