    Allen West has confirmed what I, and numerous other, have suspected. Without naming names, he said some of the new House freshman are breaking promises made to their constituents. I’m sorry, but I keep harkening back to remarks made by former Sen. Trent Lott(R-MS), now a lobbyist “when they come up here, we will just co-opt them”. Good people, when that happens, and apparently is happening, even as we speak, our nation is back to square one “Business as usual”.

    [Don’t be so sure. Doing what Bachmann wanted to do on the CR would have been a violation of house rules by making de-authorizing legislation while bypassing the standing committees. Remember the problems with procedure that happened under Pelosi? How they ignored it when it suited them? Well the GOP promised to follow procedure. Remember Alcee hastings saying that they make up the rules as they go? Also if Boehner is planning what I think he is planning you will end up being very pleased. Don, just so you know my friend, I know things that most people don’t as I have contacts in DC. Have some faith. :) – Editor]
