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
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?
