Let the blame game begin...

WASHINGTON (AP) — The former leader of a tea party group says the Republican Party and stupid statements by some candidates are to blame for GOP losses in last month's congressional elections.
 
Dick Armey, who until recently led the conservative group FreedomWorks, said some GOP candidates said "stupid things" that party leaders should have taught them to avoid saying. He said Republicans had a lot of candidates who did "dumb things" during their campaigns.
 
Armey, a former Republican House majority leader from Texas, did not specifically mention controversial comments about rape by GOP Senate candidates in Indiana and Missouri that contributed to their defeats in November.
 
Armey said it is the party's job to support and train candidates.
 
Armey left FreedomWorks after an internal dispute about the group's direction.

The Tea Party failed cuz they failed to back Libertarian and Constitution parties.

You never saw black-Americans try to change the Whig or the Dixiecrat parties did you ?

Talk about failing to learn from the lessons of history.

The sad thing was that there were people in the TEA parties smarter than this.

Yet another "Republican" getting on board, potentially, with Obama...

Dick Armey: GOP should vote on ‘fiscal cliff’; tea party candidates ‘did dumb things’

Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, who recently resigned as head of the tea party group FreedomWorks, suggested House Speaker John Boehner should put the Republican plan to avoid a "fiscal cliff" to a vote already.

"Take the vote," Armey said Monday in an interview with "CBS This Morning." "If the president has his overwhelming mandate from the American people, the 435 members of Congress will recognize that mandate in their districts, and he'll win the vote. If he wins the vote, then he owns the results, and he can take them to the Senate, which is controlled by his party, sign it into law and live with the consequences."

The Republicans are now showing their true colors, just LIKE the Democrats! Boehner and company (The Republicons) will now be going along with anything the dictator Obama (as instructed by his globalist masters) tells them to do, and there will be silence from the SPINELESS  followers in Congress  who just follow orders! ALL OF THESE GUYS HAVE BETRAYED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! SHAMEFUL!

  The end of the Republicans is not necessarily a bad thing.  Maybe a true strong 3rd party might arise from this mess.  If there is enough time.



Rush Limbaugh Predicts ‘End Of Republican Party’ If Obama Wins Re-Election

 
 
 
 On his syndicated radio show Monday afternoon, conservative host Rush Limbaugh predicted that if President Barack Obama wins re-election, it will mean an end to the Republican Party and the triggering of economic collapse within 18 months.

“How long does this country have if Obama wins?” Limbaugh asked. “We’re headed toward an economic collapse and we are the leader of the world. And when it happens to us, there are reverberations all over the world [...] How long is it going to take? I’m asking a serious question. 18 months? You throw ObamaCare onto what we know what we are going to get from Obama — more debt, more spending, the expansion of the welfare state. How long can this go on?” he continued.

He went on to refer to MSNBC host Chris Matthews saying last week that an Obama re-election would mean the end of conservatism. “Nope,” Limbaugh disagreed, “if Obama wins, it’s the end of the Republican Party.”

“There’s going to be a third party that’s going to be orientated towards conservatism — or Rand Paul thinks libertarianism,” he continued. “If Obama wins, the Republican Party will try to maneuver things so conservatives get blamed. The only problem is right now, Romney is not running a conservative campaign.”

Apparently they want to bring DC down to a one. Uparty rule.  Turn both into a Globocrat Party and force the seccessionists' hand to give them an excuse for martial-law.
