In my own humble opinion, I believe that the members of the Tea Party Caucus in the United States House of Representatives have come to a conclusion that they can be reelected without the assistance of the established Republican Party.
Speaker Boehner old ways of doing business, meeting over a nice piece of meat and some red wind then exchanging pork are no longer a viable option in order to get business done on the Hill. So he turns the tough guy line a la John Wayne: " Get your a$$ in line." the gruff headmaster twisting arms in the front office accomplished as of 11:00pm on Thursday, nothing.
Where does this leave us? Pointing fingers at everybody.
