John Boehner gave away the store. And then, even after Obama spit on his latest counter-offer, Boehner stripped three Tea Party men of the committee assignments.

It's time for the Tea Party to bolt the GOP. Set up a rival caucus, have a three-way race for the Speakership, and then make it a three-way race for the House in 2014. Enough of this toadying.

    There is no GOP ... they follow the DEM Party in policies and direction that it is very hard to find any real line between them ... they seem to be all joined at the hip and putting on a show for ratings.

    They should start their own political party. I'd support that!

    The other day I told the RNC NOT to bother calling me again until they resolved their good-ol' boy attitude. Now letters to both Boehner and Priebus are being sent via e-mail and snail mail explaining why I am withdrawing support of the RNC.

    The TEA Party needs to take over the GOP and oust all RINOs. What good does it do to leave it? This suggestion is poorly thought through.

    Yes, do it! Do it!! The poor Democrats wouldn’t stand a chance against a united Tea Party that has divested itself of the Establishment GOP!

    I can hear them now, begging, pleading:

    The TP was quickly sucked into the establishment. That's why notable TP reps (like Rubio, Allen, Noem etc.) voted in favor of the NDAA as written. Sad.

    The Tea Party is great, but it is not a sufficiently broad coalition to take control of the government. If the Tea Party goes independent, that will only leave the big spending Republicans in the Republican Party. A Congress split three ways with the Tea Party, the remaining big spending Republicans, and the Democrats will see the Dems and remaining big spending Republicans combining on almost everything to rapidly increase government spending. The Tea Party in the Republican Party has largely forced big spending Republicans to back away from big spending at least in their public pronouncements. In fact, the Club for Growth evaluations showed the Republicans to be in favor of substantially less spending than Democrats. Take the Tea Party out of the Republican Party and all the brakes are off.

    Yes, this Boehner nonsense is a set-back, but the 2014 election can make the Tea Party more powerful again and make them strong enough to control the Republican Party. One set-back should not defeat them.

    The Tea Party was a No Tax and Spend Movement .... Then the far right Christian Coalition intruded with the Abortion issue ..... Then the far Right Extremist Militia muscled into the mix! !
    I had hoped the Tea Party would evolve into a Libertarian type movement .... audit the FED Keep a stronger Military than Paul wanted but bring them home... More state control.. Only way a third party can ever survive .....

    To abandon the GOP and go it alone is self destructive. No third party has a snow-ball's chance of being taken serious and 0 chance of influencing either major party.

    Have you forgotten that the GOP itself started as a minor third party to the Democratic-Republicans (which became the Democratic Party) and the Whig Party? They fielded an Abolitionist Presidential candidate named Fremont, who lost, but just four years later they fielded another candidate named Abraham Lincoln.

    Tea Party is a bunch of RWNJs. I need not prove it. Their members in congress and general membership prove it on a daily basis with their stupidity, ignorance and in some case racism.

    We switched our voter reg to unaffiliated quite awhile ago. I also wrote to our state GOP telling them I felt they no longer represented my small gov conservative values.

    I think right now would be a great time to change voter reg. in protest....and let the GOP know you are doing it, and why. I am encouraging everyone I know to take action. Mebe a mass exodus would get the attention of these party hacks.

    Rand Paul said he ran as a repub because getting on the ballot was so difficult . We need to figure out how to make it easier .

    They would if they lived up to their name, which they don’t. They started out that way, but got quickly taken over by Dominionist Christian theocrats.

    They’re the “Constitution Party” in the same sense that North Korea really is “The Democratic Republic of North Korea.”

    What most don’t understand about the tea party people is that they are not connected to either the Democratic or Republican Party, they are more in agreement with conservative viewpoints and spurn the liberal ideology..

    They should kick out the coat-tail riding fakers

    Not connected to the Republican Party? Perhaps you need to put in a call to the Boner. He seems to have some tea cups hiding in his pantry.

    Excuse me but those tea cups are still members of Congress. Those tea cups are still members of the NOP. The Boner has simply put himself in another fix.
