GOP: Tea Party Duped

AND HE SHALL LEAD THEM....

John Boehner is leading by example. He announced that he too will be using a lobbyist to run things for him.

DID THEY VOTE FOR THE WRONG CANDIDATES?

The Tea Party stirred up a lot of anger and a lot of fear in the American people in time for the mid-term elections. They worked hard to elect candidates that would support their cause and see it through. So, what happened? Did they vote for the wrong candidates?

Today many of those people must feel really angry for being made fools of, by the politicians that they thought had the same agenda they did for this country.


IF YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM AT THEIR GAME, JOIN THEM

A few that already play the game, will teach them well.
A few that already play the game, will teach them well.

How quickly they showed their true colors....

  • Ron Johnson of Utah beat out a "fiscal conservative" Democrat because he promised reform when it came to lobbyists. And less than a month later, he hired a lobbyist for Home Land Security; Donal H. Kent to serve as his chief of staff.

  • House Rep. Charlie Bass of New Hampshire named John Billings a food industry lobbyist as his chief of staff.

  • Rand Paul of Kentucky named Douglas Stafford a well known ant-union lobbyist as a top aide. But he was back peddling on election night, so we saw this one coming.

  • Chip Cravaack of Minnesota hired a "former", (really?) lobbyist Rod Grams as a temporary chief of staff. We'll see how temporay.

  • Raul Labrador of Idaho has hired NRA's John Goodwin to be his chief of staff.

  • Mike Lee of Utah named Spencer Stokes, an energy lobbyist as his chief of staff.

Does anyone see a partern here and what does it mean?

They'll have the inside track on how to secure lots of money when they need it.

The pattern is a long standing one that has repeated itself many times. Say what you have to before the vote and do what you want to after the vote.

The Tea Party are all hypocrites. I haven't heard any of them complaining about the new tax cut deal. Their biggest issue was budget deficits. This blows a hole in the deficit the size of the Grand Canyon.

Gotta Love Life! It always manages to kick people in the butt! Hope the people that voted for these candidates wake up from that hallucinogen that is in their tea and start thinking clearly. The only Tea Party spokesman we are still hearing from is Sarah Palin, but then she is her own lobbyist!

We all knew what hypocrites they are! Don't you just love it? Thank you for writing-love to read everything you offer us...
