    Boehner was never in danger. Teaper propaganda and nothing more. They want to destroy the GOP...thank God the GOP took a stand today.

    "Their repudiation of Boehner was an awkward display of GOP schisms at a time when party leaders want to show voters that they can govern effectively. They want to show they won't be forced by tea party legislators into unwinnable, unpopular showdowns with President Barack Obama."

    In addition to other disasters caused by the TPM, such as the sequester, the credit rating downgrade, and the government shutdown.

    "Tea Party is dying. McCain is purging them from his campaign committee. Dummy, he followed along with them during his first presidential campaign, including his choice of running mate."

    The TPM isn't dying, unfortunately, at least not yet; but republican leaders clearly understand that siding with the TPM is a losing proposition.

    We're sure to see a lot more of the same from them. Its all they've got.

    If we're very lucky, we'll get to see Cruz read another children's book.

    The message that there would no automatic cave-in to Boner's "follow the Democrats" appeasement was sufficiently clear.

    Boner is a sellout.
    The Tea Party is just a group of citizens that want to end the massive spending in Washington.

    For this they're called terrorists.
