I oppose the candidacy of Jeb Bush. But I believe I see a glimmer of "fear of the tea party" in the eye of McConnell. We need to keep up the pressure on him and Boehner. We need to be respectful and forceful when we write to or call their Office. But we can turn them into useful tools of our movement to return the USA to a constitutional Republic. To answer Red spot; GOP party apparatchiks turn on us no more frequently than Dem leaders "betray" the "occupy movement". Maxine Waters, Elizabeth Warren and a number of Lefties opposed the CrOmnibus. OK, it was mostly just for show. Obama got his CrOmnibus. So those who pander to the left could act outraged for their groups. But the cracks between various left coalition partners are starting to show, now that the Dem's are not the "party in power"

The US worked with Stalin to defeat Hitler. I am sure she would advocate working with McConnell to defeat Obamacare and Obama Amnesty.

Wishing for the death of your ideological opponent is childish. and counter productive.

I thought that the point of the CR exercise was to bring up the Amnesty issue in February, when Republicans could actually do something, rather that bluster about how they were going to "stay strong". Judging Boehner or McConnell today as having betrayed us on Amnesty is a bit premature. We should judge them after Feb 27. Not that I am all that confident they will do the right thing, but I like to believe I judge people by objective evidence, not emotion.
