Re:Patrick Cleburne's article LaTourette Achievement: Speaker Boehner Explains Why Speaker Boehner Has To Go
From: Robin Corkery (e-mail him)
Boehner long ago lost sight of principle in favor of "pragmatism". At a reception for my Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, I heard Boehner inveigh against what he called "knuckle-draggers". There was no doubt he was talking about members who insisted on government getting serious about its duty to protect our borders.
James Fulford writes:Steve Latourette applied the same epithet—"knuckle-draggers”—to Tea Party influenced candidates “that came in in the last election that hate taxes.”[Rep. LaTourette Tells Transit Advocates to Ask Congress for What They Need, by Tanya Snyder, DC.StreetsBlog.org, March 16, 2011]
