    It doesn't happen very often. At least it didn't used to. Until recently, the Republicans have held a very strict discipline. They may have their disagreements in private. But in public, they never speak ill of another Republican. They always vote as a block. And they always have the same talking points.

    So what's to make of the recent refusal of over 80 Republican Congressmen to vote against the 2011 budget compromise? It seems like an escalation of a simmering tension between the Tea Party and the GOP center.

    Within each party there is a left, center and right wing.

    Dividions tend to grow as presidential primaries approach.
    After the primary they kiss and make up.

    It's not that they have very strict discipline. The party is 90% white and they normally vote in a block. But the "Teabirthers" have taken over. Having a black president has freaked them out.

    They do like "discipline". They hold fundraisers and strategy sessions in "Lesbian Bondage Bars" and ship the bill off to their base.

    I was just pointing out the obvious. Which part was wrong?

    You point out the truth to right wingers and they call names. At least they don't try to prove me wrong. They can't and they know it.

    The tea party will kill the republican party.


    They push the party into narrowing its view and they will do it right up until the party is so narrow it cant win any elections.

    LOL, you've been saying stuff like this for years and damn they're still around.
    and in case you all forgot, the Republicans just WON in the last election in HISTORIC numbers.

    Keep pushing the party right.

    If you notice more Americans blame the republicans for the current direction of the country which they dont like.

    Keep pushing your party right, right off a cliff
