Republicans are “Eating Their Own” Again

Here we go again:  This was totally expected but it is extremely sad!

“On Sunday, Chris Wallace, the host of Fox News Sunday, said that Republicans in Washington were savaging Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) behind Cruz’s back before Cruz’s appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare.” – Tony Lee, Breitbart.com.

LibertyWhat’s the problem here?  It seems to me that the same old guard, the establishment RINOs, the good old boys and girls, care more about their power, position and status than they do about fighting for liberty and keeping their oaths to:  “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”

They’re angry.  Why?  “…because this was a strategy laid out by Mike Lee and Ted Cruz without any consultation with their colleagues” Karl Rove said. “Mike Lee laid it out on July 9th without ever having brought it up at the Thursday meeting of the senators to say, We’ve got an idea.”  So, the said good old boys and girls have their thongs in a knot because they weren’t consulted at the Thursday meeting?  How well does anyone with a brain think that would have gone over if it were brought up before there was demonstrated support from We the People?  Not so much!

Let’s cut to the chase.  The RINOs are upset because it is no longer business as usual in Washington.  There are a growing number of upstarts in both houses who aren’t content to sit around and do what they’re told is business as usual, who aren’t content to go along to get along with the establishment folks, especially those who call themselves leaders.  Their numbers are still relatively small, but their integrity and tenacity are Gargantuan!  And their numbers will grow!

“The fight to save America from Obamacare is just beginning — it may well go back and forth from the House and Senate several times — and a united Republican front means that Harry Reid and the President cannot ignore the American people.” – Senator Ted Cruz.

There was a victory for liberty in the House of Representatives on Friday.  Will Republicans in both chambers unite and stay strong?  God only knows, but it’s clear that the fate of our Republic hangs in the balance.
