It is Time to Apologize to the Tea Party!

I will start by admitting I am very upset at the GOP and its so-called leaders, but I am equally upset at the Voters in our Party!

If you are a GOP Voter and are still making excuses for either one of these two GOP leaders, then we will never begin to reform the Republican Party.  The GOP, which is Your Party, is working against you day in, and day out, and I would like to know, What are you going to do about it?

Being in denial about what is going on does not help anyone. And if you are not in denial, but are afraid to speak up about it, then that is even worse.  Choosing to remain silent about a problem has far worse consequences than admitting it exists and attempting to correct it.  You get the party that you choose to have!

First, I would like to DEMAND an apology from MITT ROMNEY.  I know it may be late, and we will probably never get one, but he should apologize for wasting our time, our treasure and our attention on his failed candidacy which we predicted would happen, and yet were forced to accept.

I do not believe for one minute what his son, Tagg, said about him not wanting to run. If it is true, it troubles me because he would have to have been incredibly dishonest to have strung along his supporters for six years. It would also show a blatant disregard for all of the voters and the process in general.  On the other hand, if it is not true, then hiding behind a family member to speak on his behalf to make excuses for his failure is even more pathetic. Leaders do not make excuses for their failures. They take responsibility for them.

When people do wrong by others, they should not be parading themselves around as if life is wonderful. It is not!  I am tired of selfish politicking. Who is sacrificing, may I ask?! Not him!

ROMNEY ran against us in this last election. He started campaigning against us in 2007 through his advisor, Kevin Madden, as many of you already know, by spreading a false charge that Sarah Palin, who represents us, was inexperienced.  Let’s be honest.  This election was never about the GOP against Obama, but about the GOP against us, We-the-People.

Until you, GOP voters, Wake UP and admit this, we will never be able to focus on our “other” enemy. It’s no longer about the D’s v. the R’s! We must deal with the reality of who is undermining us, the GOP, who is supposed to be On Our Side, but is not.

The second person I would like an apology from is Dr. MICHELE BACHMANN.

I want to let it be known that Michele Bachmann will forever be known as the BACKSTABBER to many, one who always looks out for number one.  She may have others fooled, but not this voter.  Theory is one thing, and applied knowledge is another. And loyalty in politics is NUMBER ONE.  Just because what you do looks good on paper and you have good ideas, does not make you effective. It is unfortunate because she happens to have foreign policy that I agree with, but because she chooses to “fit in” instead of stand on principle, she loses my respect. In any case, she is not only ineffective in D.C., but an ineffective Tea Party advocate who is unloyal to the cause she pretends to defend and its leader.

Michele Bachmann used the Tea Party cause and created a caucus inside Washington to further her career early on, and she did very little about it following that.  She also used Sarah Palin’s high profile and popularity to promote herself by raising much needed funds and publicity for her campaign, only to badmouth her in Iowa when she was campaigning for President, which was made possible thanks to the attention she enjoyed because of Sarah’s support in the first place.

Michele Bachmann exits the stage after an embarrassing primary, penniless and with no support from either the GOP or the Tea Party, and manages to bounce back from the fall, only to disappoint all over again.

When will politicians learn? It never ceases to amaze me! Do they disappoint me? Yes. Does this surprise me? Not at all.

Here are the results of Boehner’s Speakership renewal vote:

Votes
Boehner 220
Pelosi 192
Cantor 3
Allen West 2
Cooper 2
Lewis 1
Jordan 1
Colin Powell 1
Labrador 1
Amash 1
Dingell 1
David Walker 1
ANSWERED “PRESENT” 1
NOT VOTING 6

Twelve representatives ~ too few! ~ voted for someone else or abstained. It is apparent there is a problem in Washington. If we elect leaders to speak up for us and they are afraid to do so because Speaker Boehner will punish or marginilize them, what do we do to change that?  Instead of being rewarded for representing the people, they are probably going to be castigated by the Speaker instead. It is up to us to show them our praise and recognition. I know I will start extending my thanks to them today.

  1. What really sucks is, running the numbers, the only other alternative was giving the gavel back to Bela Pelosi. Talk about a FAIL.

  2. Bonehead used the Tea Party as well!!! Conservative need to stand up and fight back…it is the ONLY way!!!!!!!!!

    • Isabel Matos

      Boehner is a lost cause and all we have is our will to do what is right, and reel our representatives back in, and be sure they answer to us, not him.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. When contacted about the statement, some other tea party groups remain largely positive about the Bachmann candidacy.

    • Isabel Matos

      It seems she has not given any reporters the time of day regarding her decision, and that is wrong. It shows she is either embarrassed about it or hiding something. In any case, she is not to be trusted. I have gotten some heat from her supporters elsewhere. This is not personal. She did something wrong for selfish reasons. I know when someone attacks my Senator/s or Representative/s I get defensive, but the criticism must be taken seriously, not personally to best assess the points being made which are valid, and to produce decisions based on what is right.

      I think Michele Bachmann is an intelligent woman. I know she is. I support her foreign policy. When she pushed for a Muslim Brotherhood investigation and others undermined her, I stood by her efforts because all those who attacked her were wrong. The problem is, being disloyal IS her downfall. No one ends up trusting or respecting you because they think you are doing things for self-interest. It just backfires.

      Anyway, these two should apologize. I would give them a fair shake if they did, but there are others I would love to see exit the party altogether, and I couldn’t care less to even ask them for an apology.

      Thanks for the comment. By the way, there are some so-called Tea Party groups and patriots who are quite in denial about who their candidates are. I can name some, but I won’t.

    Boehner Re-elected as Speaker Of The House??!? We’re screwed unless he changes his ways. After Ms. Bachmann stabbed Sarah Palin and all of us Palinistas/ TEA Party Members in the back, she got her comeuppance thru JAy Leno, Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart, and one so-called comedienne, Kathy Griffin. No one was around to get her back. When Ed Rollins got involved in her Campaign, I knew we were in for it bigtime.

    I’m slowly realizing why Sarah Palin chose not to run. There’s an awful lot of work that needs to be done. The United States is on the brink and time’s running out.

    • Gary P Jackson

      Jim you are so right. Backstabber Bachmann is just another political hack who talks the talk, but doesn’t walk the walk. In 2010 Bachmann faced horrible defeat, and Sarah Palin took time to go to Minnesota and bring a record crowd with her, all for Bachmann. Even managed to get Hannity to do a live show from there! Palin saved Bachmann’s hide.

      How does Backstabber Bachmann thank Sarah? By stabbing her in the back, less than a year later, that’s how. Bachmann was all over Iowa trashing Sarah, and her supporters, while at the same time bragging Sarah was about to endorse her!

      Scott Conroy at Real Clear Politics wrote all about it:

      http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2011/08/13/palin-bachmann_rancor_heats_up_below_the_surface_110942.html

      I rarely want to see a Republican lose to a democrat, but I was hoping Bachmann would lose in the last election.

    • Isabel Matos

      Jim,

      A lot of work needs to be done. Things are a mess, but I am kind of excited about the challenge we have ahead!

      If we do what is right, we will see good things happen, but we just have to rise to the occasion and sacrifice.

      Good post! Thanks for commenting.

    I agree that Romney was another epic failure and that includes all of those that ran his campaign. He will never apologize and neither will any of him advisers.
    Bachman isn’t the only one the owes Sarah big time – so does Nikki Haley. She won because of Sarah and she turns around and endorses Romney. These people have very short memories and they need to be careful because…….”the door swings both ways”.
    Lastly, the guy next to Romney that burns my ass is RNC Chair Reince Priebus. He is a weasel, a liar and is about as despicable an individual as there is out there in politics. His explanation to Mark Levin regarding Sarah Palin not speaking at the Convention was a huge lie…….I don’t trust or believe him for a second.
    All these people have “stuck” it to the Conservative/Tea Party Americans.
    We need to clean house and hopefully Sarah will lead the charge as a candidate and speak to our common goal of taking back America.

    • Isabel Matos

      Good post! This is just the beginning!

      I agree with everything you said, and will just add that their memories are short because we lose focus and they know they can get away with things while we’re not watching. It really is up to us to make them better.

      What really bothers me about this vote was that the determining vote came from Mrs. Tea Party Caucus herself. John BOEHNER has been particularly harsh with the Tea Party, and this reveals what an opportunist she has been.

      The left is probably having a field day with all this internal drama. Who cares? This painful process has to take place if reform is to happen. Someone has to sacrifice! And one person, let’s agree on this.. Sarah Palin, cannot be everywhere and should not be expected to do everything, so it is up to us to do what we can to make her job easier should she decide to run. It’s also the right thing to do anyway!

      Thanks for stopping by.
