"According to The Hill, lobbyists were "pleasantly surprised by" Boehner's "strident remarks" last week in which he said Tea Party groups have lost "all credibility" after they opposed the budget compromise that increased taxes. Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin said Boehner's words were a declaration of war on grassroots conservatives."

Speaker Boehner's attack on the Tea Party is incomprehensible given it is that very group of Americans that gave him his speakership in 2010. Make no mistake, this is a calculated move, Progressive Republicans seem to be operating from the radical Alinsky playbook.
By joining the Communists of the Democratic Party in marginalizing Conservative Americans, establishment Republicans in DC are joining forces to further Obama's radical transformation of America. Specifically, up next is the push to award amnesty to over 10 million illegal immigrants, assuring the complete destruction of America.
However, in so doing, he has also revealed his true position. There can be no denying his loyalty to the established way of doing business in DC, to going along to get along, to helping push America further down the road to ruin. Anything that he says to attempt to placate Conservatives should be ignored, he is what he is and needs to be dealt with accordingly.
Just as Alisnky rules have worked to further the radical agenda of the radical Communists, and now the Progressive Republicans, it is also working against them. As Rules for Radicals tactic #13 explains, pick the target, freeze and polarize it.That is what Boehner is doing. The effect is to destroy the targets credibility and therefore minimize its power.
However, this rule also says that when a target is attacked all of the "others" come out of hiding in defense of the target. Well, the opposite is true as well, just look at all of the "others" that have come out in defense of and support of Boehner's attacks. That's right, we know who our enemies are, the question is how to defeat them.
