    Boehner tosses Tea Bag nuts out of committees. The beginning of the end for Tea Bags....

    Like I've said all along, after the presidential elections, which I said President Obama would win, the GOP would try to jettison the Tea Bags. The Tea Bags and their insanity are the reason they've been losing votes and it turns out the Tea Bag representativess, while feigning concern for the working class, are now seen as the corporate reps they really are. On Monday, JOHN BOEHNER decided to do something about the Tea Baggers constant obstructionism. From "The MaddowBlog": Republican leaders on Monday removed members with obstinate voting patterns from key committees. Most notably, Representative Tim Huelskamp, Republican of Kansas, one of the most conservative members of the House, was removed from the budget committee as well as the agriculture committee. Joining Mr. Huelskamp, a second-term representative, on the budget committee bye-bye list was Representative Justin Amash of Michigan.
    Both members have a history of voting against party leaders on bills, both in committee and on the floor, and it seemed Speaker John A. Boehner and the committee chairmen had had enough. Mr. Huelskamp and Mr. Amash both rejected the so-called Ryan budget, proposed by Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, because its cuts were not deep enough.
    At the same time, Reps. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.) lost their spots on the House Financial Services Committee.
    There's no great mystery as to how and why this occurred -- the GOP leadership did not see these four lawmakers as "team players," and their perceived disloyalty came with a price. This also presumably sends a related message to the rest of the often-rancorous caucus that the party is keeping score and expects discipline.

    ~~~now watch, from here the crazies aka Tea Bags will go off on their own and attempt to get a majority and create a separate party, they are delusional enough to think they'll actually get a majority. Meanwhile, the GOP will suffer temporarily from the exodus of nutjobs but in time will pull back to the center and become a party representative of today's America and will be more in line with the Democrats. In time the races will be closer between the GOP and the Democrats, but the nut bags will always be a separate and losing minority party in government.
