GOP Establishment Will Never Please Tea Party
House Speaker John Boehner has shut down the government and threatened to have the Treasury Department default. In the eyes of tea party activists Boehner has been too reasonable with President Barack Obama. Erick Erickson of Red State is publicly backing a primary opponent against Boehner.
I have just given money to Heritage Action for America. I have just given money to Senate Conservatives Fund. These two groups will be at the forefront of the fight. I am also giving money to Eric Gurr. He has decided to primary Speaker John Boehner in Ohio. I am also giving money to Matt Bevin. He is the primary challenger to Mitch McConnell.Republicans are losing the shutdown battle in poll after poll. People like Erickson, who forced the GOP down ths path, refuse to take responsibility for their stupidity. The tea party is willing to destroy the Republican Party. If the GOP establishment keeps pandering to the tea party the result will be Democrats winning more elections.
