My Lord but the democrats must be tossing back the popcorn and laughing with glee at the GOP circular firing squad, particularly when the GOP could be blowing democrat after democrat out of the water right about now.

When is this insanity going to stop?

When the GOP stops trying to purge conservatives from the party...... what they are doing is pushing the conservatives into a third party.... and that will not end well for anyone.

When Club for Growth, Conservative Senate Fund, and Heritage Action for America can't raise money by squealing every time something happens they don't like.

Scalise is a conservative and a Tea Partier.  He can't allow a staff member to be leaking confidential information to these outside groups so that they can then turn around and raise money off that information.

One must remember that the Conservative Action Group is in business to raise money first and to advance the conservative cause second.

The Tea Party is trying to purge conservatives they don't like from the GOP......if you want to be on the outside looking in for the rest of your political life, forma a third party.

You have soooooo much concern about conservatives raising money and never a peep out of all the money the moderates raise over on K-Street.

There is more than enough pissing to go around for everyone - second helpings for everyone.  If conservatives think that keeping up the shooting right now is going to somehow defend their beliefs they're stupider than I thought.  This fight at this time is not going to protect conservative principles in public life, it is going to end up further marginalizing them because this level of infighting will necessarily lead to more democrat/liberal election wins.  Standing for too long on the purest of pure principles right now will only damage those principles.

It seems that only some members of the Conservative Action Group are in the business of raising money to TRASH FELLOW REPUBLICANS.    It is those members that are the problem; not the "moderates" (whoever they are).

Then prepare to lose because conservatives are tired of being screwed over and dissed and yet they expect our votes.

Hear that rumbling sound?  That's the sound of the GOP saving the democrats from the consequences of their Obamacare disaster.

I bet the White House is enjoying watching this? It was bound to happen at some point. Yet a 3rd party will not end well.

No matter what, you don't want Harry Reid's approval. Way to go, Boehner.

Mark Levin spoke about this firing yesterday. He was quite angry. He stated the RSC was one of the few, maybe the only, Conservative voice on the inside of the Republican Congressional leadership and Teller is a principled Conservative. In his opinion the firing is part of a purge by Boehner designed to seize control of the RSC so it becomes merely one more reliable voice supporting the "moderates" .

Perhaps my historical ignorance is showing, but were any of the early Republicans who came as refugees from the Whig party in its last days?

Like I said, the democrats/liberals are pulling up the lawn chairs and popping the popcorn.
