I among others have been discussing for some time now on just how many Republican leaders have a real spine anymore. All we hear out of many of them is weak a*s excuses and the statements that begin with "We need to ------".

Hoping for Marco Rubio, who seems to have a spine and a good set of huevos below

For all his problems, at least Newt had TEETH.
And didn't mind using them.

Now, suddenly, the Tea Party is everybody’s whipping boy.

Liberals, in the wake of the election, gloat about what they see as liberalism’s return to the mainstream and good riddance to the end of the Republican “extremists.”

And, despite the spin, which never stops in Washington, it is not accidental that four prominent Tea Party congressmen have been purged from key committee posts by Speaker John Boehner.

So as the Washington “establishment” cozies up to the mindset that America will go on no matter what and that a bloated, debt-ridden America can go on just fine as long...
