Summary: "Tea party activist David Lewis’s announcement Friday that he plans to mount a primary challenge to House Speaker John Boehner could indicate a larger problem for the GOP leadership, and point to restlessness among an important segment of the tea party faithful. "
Note: While looking up articles about David Lewis, the Tea Party activist who will be challenging Boehner in 2012, I found this more general the most interesting, so this is based on that request.
Repealing Obamacare was also part of the deal—Anyone remember that?
And some folks here think that Tea Party members are going to blindly support rinos like rick Perry and Romney.
The GOP establishment types here and in Washington have another thing coming.
Some ask what happened to that $100 Billion in spending cuts promised by the GOP going into the 2010 election?
They promptly kicked that can down the road, as they have every 'cuts' bill while putting 'spending' bills on the front burner.
The GOP leadership are being called on their ole dipsy-doodle fast-shoe shellgame.
Yes, it will be a blood bath on both sides. The Repus have a leader who is more likely to go along with obama than not, has done squat in repealing obamaCare. We have dems that are becoming more insane by the minute and marzist coat tails of obama will drive conservatives to the polls to get rid of these people.
I guaranty it! The silent majority is roaring!
Obamacare and quit shifting debt to our grandchildren. Cut spending to bring it in line with revenues. Any idiot knows that. Also stop corporate welfare. I pay more Federal taxes than GE. Incrediable.
This david Lewis guy is a whack job. Heard him interviewed on Fox and he has one issue funding for Planned Parenthood. Texas ended any State funding for it and several of them have closed.
When asked about other issues he couldn’t comment and just returned to the same isue over and over.
Makes the Tea Party look less than serious. I hope the vast majority of TP’rs, don’t make the mistake of jumping in for another Christine.
“Tea party activist David Lewis’s announcement Friday that he plans to mount a primary challenge to House Speaker John Boehner...”
I saw the guy being interviewed on Fox. Boehner doesn't have anything to worry about for him. He sounded like an idiot ranting about stuff he didn't have a clue about.
It was embarrassing to watch, like a Ron Paul or code pinko nut off the deep end on everything.
--- This POV is why the comments on the other articles about Lewis weren't that interesting.
Exactly what has Boehner done to derail Onada’s Marxist agenda? Please be specific and do not include things he allegedly “tried” to do. We have a bullet proof majority in the House. Boehner made no attempt to even bring bills to the floor and force the demrats to vote.
Any objective person can only conclude he has acted as Onada’s useful idiot—aiding and abetting the Marxist’s agenda.
I could watch Tammy Faye Boehner clean out his desk without shedding a tear if a tea partier was taking his seat.
David Lewis makes Ron Paul look measured and responsible. The guy is a nutjob, which is why you’re reading this story on Yahoo - they love crazy “Tea Party activists”.
