Without a doubt, the GOP House infighting is getting personal. Now a VA House GOP rep wants to primary a Freedom Caucus House Rep from VA. The GOP inflighting between the extreme conservatives and the mainstream Rinos has generated some very bad blood. This does not bode well for any sort of red House come January.


Rep. Derrick Van Orden is done with Rep. Bob Good.
Good, the leader of the House Freedom Caucus and one of eight Republicans who voted to oust Kevin McCarthy from the speakership, has been at the center of internal GOP infighting that has left their party’s agenda in tatters and their conference embroiled in a bitter civil war.

Now Van Orden has joined hands with a band of House Republicans angling to knock Good off in his June primary by propping up his primary opponent, John McGuire – a tactic long viewed as a serious breach of protocol but one that underscores the bad blood within the House GOP.

“Bob Good didn’t come here to govern. He came here to be famous,” Van Orden, a Wisconsin Republican, told CNN. “Bob Good’s wearing our jersey, and he’s not on the team.”

Van Orden added: “If you look at what we have not been able to accomplish in this Congress, it’s predominantly because of Bob Good and his ilk.”

But Good is undeterred.

As he barnstormed through his district last week with fellow House GOP hardliners, such as Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Chip Roy of Texas, Good said voters in his district don’t care what his colleague from Wisconsin thinks. And he pointedly accused many of his Republican colleagues in Washington of casting votes that hurt the country and undermine the conservative cause.

“They’ve never heard of Derrick Van Orden. They could care less what Derrick Van Orden thinks,” he said of his constituents, later telling CNN that questions about his Republican colleagues turning against him are “stupid.”

“You come to these things, and you ask questions that nobody here cares about. You bring up Derrick Van Orden, which is a joke,” he said.

Yeah, we'll take this genuine "news" from a legitimately concerned person such as yourself wih a monumental shipment of sodium.

In short?

This is the dumbest, most tone deaf take fucking possible.

But I guess us MAGA Republicans we should all be thankful.

It means you have no idea what's coming.

And that's fantastic for America.

Cuz it means Democrats lose. ;)
 
For decades the GOP RINO's and establishment types took a shit on conservatives. Gradually conservatives have gained power and numbers. Today with the slim majority in the House they are getting some payback. Notice how many RINO rats have fled congress, that's progress.

Indeed, this must be gospel according to you because the source is CNN. We all know that like the rest of the Quisling Media this is Bull crap.

It appears that, somehow, there is still a small segment that can be swayed in one direction or the other. But I don't think that segment pays attention to stuff like this, or to most of the political news. We'll find out, I guess.
 
Problem is "nothing changes in DC".

The GOP has a majority in the House and INCREASED 2024 spending!!! WTF!

Biden’s 2024 Budget was $7.30T with a $2.0T deficit THIS BUDGET SHOULD HAVE BEEN SMALLER!!
Biden's 2023 Budget was $6.13T with a $1.7T deficit
Biden's 2022 Budget was $6.27T with a $1.4T deficit
Biden's 2021 Budget was $6.82T with a $2.8T deficit
Trump's 2020 Budget was $6.55T with a $3.1T deficit
Trump's 2019 Budget was $4.40T with a $0.9T deficit
Trump's 2018 Budget was $4.10T with a $0.8T deficit
Trump's 2017 Budget was $4.00T with a $0.5T deficit

So it makes no difference who we vote for.
