I have been pretty rough on my Congressman Bill Posey because I too often feel that he does not stand out as a leader among conservatives. He has aligned himself with Boehner too many times for my liking AND he is not prone to support legislation designed to pull back the reins on government before he “has a chance to read the bill.”
Sometimes I feel like I never get a straight answer from his office. They say one thing that sounds good, but then it sounds like there is a walk-back before the discussion is over. That is extrememly disheartening if a clear answer is not given.
I must say that I was beyond happy that Bill Posey voted against Boehner as Speaker of the House. That is one of the most gutsy votes I have seen him take. I am extremely thrilled that he stood up for change in Washington D.C.’s status quo because as noted in a previous post, I am no longer a fan of John Boehner.
So THANKS BILL! Thanks for standing up for change, for risking your position in D.C. by opposing John Boehner. Please know that I have your back and I will stand up for you if Boehner uses thuggary retaliation as retribution for your courageous vote.
I also thank the other four comprising the #FloridaFive of the #24Stood4Us. YOUR courage to work for the 60% who want Boehner ousted is duly noted and will not be forgotten!
THE FLORIDA FIVE:
- CURT CLAWSON
- RICHARD NUGENT
- BILL POSEY
- DANIEL WEBSTER
- TED YOHO

A coalition of 23 leaders in the conservative movement today urged Speaker John Boehner not to punish Republicans who voted against him for the House’s… Read More
Thank you Heritage Action for SPEAKER ELECTION: PROCEDURAL FACTS to clear the all of the talking points twittering about in the universe.
I USED to think Boehner was one of the good guys. He might be a good guy doing the best he can but it is not good enough for me any more. There is so much to say but it has been said repeatedly and well documented:
Note in Boehner’s speech, 5 POINTS FOR RESETTING AMERICA’S ECONOMIC FOUNDATION, he fails to bring up how much, in the over “ten years” he has been in Congress, he is a part of the spending problem. Why does he fail to mention FULL REPEAL on bad bills like the #Cromnibus, #Obamnesty, and #Obamacare bills? Oh, and what about the Debt Limit?
Yeah. It is time for Boehner to go. November 2014 elections were won by Tea Party Candidates in spite of the Boehner Guard control of RNC funding.
P.S. And one more thing: Boehner Throws in with Obama
“President Obama and John Boehner want a bill that the bases of their respective parties reject. Boehner is enabling (or did enable) the passage of a bill in the House that the Republican base wants no part of. They don’t want Obamacare fully implemented or funded, and they do not want Obama to get away with this executive amnesty. Boehner has worked with Obama.”
A few years ago I had a blog on blogspot which seemed a whole lot easier to use. I stopped because I hated Google and where it was going so deleted everything. Not that it matters now, apparently.
So now I am starting up again. Why?
Not exactly sure why. I enjoy writing. I am Tea Party Patriot and I love the United States of America. I want to be free. I want to be free to have an opinion. I want feel like I have a voice in government and I want to learn from credible sources not engaged to implement sophistry, malfeasance, or lies.
Like Rush talks about being a benevolent Dictator on his show, I want to be a benevolent Dictator on my blog about things that interest me.
