Well, John Boehner fired back at the tea party, saying:
ÂI think theyÂre misleading their followers. TheyÂre pushing our members in places where they donÂt want to be and, frankly, I just think that theyÂve lost all credibility.Â
And I agree with him completely. The tea party has firmly cemented their reputation as a movement that bases their rhetoric off some delusional reality instead of whatÂs actually happening.
IÂve said plenty of times that one of the biggest problems with tea party Republicans is that they believe what they want to be real instead of what is real. Facts, reality and common sense donÂt apply because none of it matters when it comes to what they want to be real.
Even going back to the government shutdown. Just about every expert, and even many Republicans, said that shutting down the government was absolutely pointless. Under no circumstances were these tea party Republicans like Ted Cruz going to get what they wanted.
But none of that change their minds. Not only did they support the shutdown, they blamed Democrats and President Obama for it even though Republicans like John Boehner said it was caused by the GOP.
You know youÂre delusional when people within your own party are blaming your own party for the government shutdown, but that has absolutely no impact on your belief that the shutdown was caused by someone else.
What the tea party has done is give a voice to those who act without rationality. Sure, each party has its far left or right leaning radicals, but theyÂve never had a platform where they could have an impact.
But now they do. And itÂs called the tea party.
And what IÂve been saying for a while now is coming to fruition more and more. The Republican party unleashed the tea party and now they have no idea how to control it.
Trust me though, I donÂt feel the least bit sorry for them. TheyÂre the ones who gave power to these right-wing radicals whoÂve been the primary reason why our Congress has been possibly the least productive Congress in United States history.
TheyÂre the ones who put their selfish ambitions above what was best for this country. TheyÂre the ones who decided that beating President Obama was more important than helping Americans find jobs. TheyÂre the ones who believed that lies arenÂt lies as long as enough people believe in them.
And now theyÂre the ones having to deal with the monster they created.
But at the same time, tea party Republicans are attacking their own.
LOVE IT when they eat their own.
They'll don't hire best to deny it here, but facts are facts.
This is the only good that's come from the GOP/tea party......self destruction.
