    Chris Weigant: Can Boehner Count Votes?



    The truly embarassing part of the vote count was that over two dozen Tea Party Republicans (or, perhaps even "Libertarian Republicans") voted with most Democrats not to extend the provisions. This is a rather large defection for Boehner to swallow. The libertarian strain of the Tea Party Republicans may lead to similar surprising splits within the House Republican ranks in future votes, which is certainly an interesting turn of events. Perhaps House Democrats should raise a few issues where the Left agrees with Libertarianism, just to sow dissent in the GOP ranks in the coming months? It's certainly worth considering.


    Sounds great, hope they will do it.

    So, restoring liberty takes a backseat to sowing dissension in the ranks of the "opposition".

    Typical political hack attitude you'd expect from the tools at HRPuffinstuffPo.

    OP doesn't understand that there are only two political Parties in America. Dem/Repub and TEA Party.

    HuffPo is now part of the AOL Corporate Conglomerate that you Lefties all disparage.

    Who wrote that dreck is reflective of the forum of where it appears.

    And I didn't shit anything...I simply refuse to reward the brazen political hackery of Huffy-Puff.

    Isn't it far more embarrassing when you make a spectacle and thread on how you're leaving and yet you're still here?

    Seems to me that Dem's should take a lesson from this and that it is right to vote the way you want to and not just with the party as a whole.
    That is why so many blue dogs were fired, they marched with Pelosi over the Health Care Bill.

    Wait.

    What?

    So now the TEA Parties are a good thing? Hmmm. Doesn't that just sum up the total moronicness of the OP. For months he's been whining about the 'Tea bastards' and now, because they don't march lock step with the GOP, all of a sudden, they're not bastards... at least, not today.

    What a fool.
