Ron Johnson, the senator from WI was on BOR earlier, what a disapointment - ever since he went to the dinner with Obama, McCain, Graham, etc., he has forgotten he was elected by the Tea Party and become a full-fledged jerk.

Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are honorable men and would never name names.

However, based on the public remarks of my own weasel Senator Burr and others who look to the Senate as their livelihood, I can guess.

Ron Johnson is from Wisconsin.  It is ludicrous to assert that he was "elected" by the Tea Party.  The Tea Party is a minoriity in the Republican Party.  I guess none of those non-tea party voters matter.

Mike Lee is loved by true Conservative Utahn's, which is the majority of Republicans in Utah.   John McCain cannot say the same about how Arizonan's feel about him and it seems Lindsay Graham cannot say the same in SC and you can bet they were leading this beat-down... 

oh, almost forgot .. and the 200K that were on the Ted Cruz telephone townhall.  Few Americans in either party know who the hell Ron Johnson even is by comparison.

How do you know? 

One of the traits of a heroic personality is the ability to get beyond criticism.   Whiners are not heroes.

Does it matter to Lee that the Republicans, as a caucus, are no longer talking about defunding and aren't even talking about wholesale delaying.  The likelihood that ANYTHING other than the repeal of the medical device tax will be part of any deal is almost nonexistent.

In other words, Lee and Cruz lost.  Republicans could likely have gotten repeal  of the medical device tax without shutting down the government.

The number was half that (104K) and knowing about someone and favoring their point of view are two different things.

I know because I know a lot of people in Utah and some who even know Mike Lee.

Oh and I know someone who worked with Huntsman when he was governor and he is an even bigger a-hole than he came across in the run for President and in his no labels ads.

What's the difference between a republican and a democrat? A. The republican signs the front of the check and the democrat signs the back.

As I have pointed out numerous times now, it is neither Cruz nor Lee who is betraying Republican principles as outlined in the Party's 2012 platform, but those Republicans who do not support their efforts.

Wisconsin voters know who he is.  I'm proud of my vote for him.

And that is why the 11th Commandment, made famous by Reagan, was invented:  to muzzle the vicious attacks by moderate republicans on other republicans.  Would that the GOP still observed the 11th Commandment.
