Tea Party activist launches primary challenge to Boehner

As Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) struggles with the budget crisis, a Troy, Ohio schoolteacher and Tea Party activist announced Sept. 30 he will challenge Boehner in the 2014 GOP primary.

Joseph D. “J.D.” Winteregg, who is a founder of the Ohio Accountability Project, a grassroots organization in Ohio-8, a congressional district bordering Indiana, said he is motivated by the gulf between the interests and values of the district and Boehner.

It is a gulf exasperated by the Speaker’s concern for national issues, which has come to mean that although the district’s congressman is the Speaker of the House, the district is without a congressman, he said.

At part of his launch, Winteregg kicked off his campaign with an Oct. 1 segment on the “Morning Blaze Show with Doc Thompson,” part of Glenn Beck’s The Blaze Radio Network.

Thompson was skeptical when he heard Winteregg was a schoolteacher, and he became even more skeptical when he heard the candidate is a French teacher. “A French teacher?!? Oooo.”

Winteregg told him not to worry, especially considering that he was a French teach, who has actually been to France. “After my time with that socialist government—you know, I lived and worked there—I made a vow that I would never let that happen in America,” he said.

“I love the culture, I love the people, but I despise the politics, but we are clearly trending that way,” he said.

Sounds like an interesting alternative for that Ohio district.  Too bad Boehner is spineless.

Boehner's working his ass off to try to hold the Republicans together, and this pansy-assed French teacher isn't happy.

I'm sure Boehner's shaking in his boots.

I just knew this guy would be here adding some kind of "just surrender, it's hopeless" posting , along with his usual and quite unnecessary personal insult: pansy-assed French teacher

He really has great difficulty expressing himself without adding some kind of venom directed at others.

Quite interesting to observe.

I will be watching this one closely.  This could be epic.  GOP Elite and Freemason John Boehner vs the political novice french teacher "J.D.” Winteregg.  This could be a glorious and stunning David and Goliath smackdown or a brutal and merciless McCain vs "J.D.” Hayworth trouncing.  No matter what happens it is sure to be entertaining.  May the best man win.  :eleph:

A government employee-- that's the best they could muster?

Go back to the drawing board and find a private sector worker.

How interesting that some alleged conservatives' immediate reaction is to mock and disparage this fellow. Now you know why it's so difficult to get good people to run for office.
