The term “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) has long been a derogatory term used to label politicians who register as republicans, but act/vote like democrats. Typically, they campaign as conservatives, donning a cloak of voting history camouflage until the election returns are in, and then quickly revert to acting as if they never heard the word “conservative”.
I don’t think the RINO moniker is effective any more. Establishment republicans now dominate the party and sullied the GOP brand. Do nothing Republicans are the norm, not the exception. The challenges facing America are so severe, and the path out of it so clear, that a new term is needed.
The answer lies in Congress, where approvals are at historic lows, despite GOP majorities that were elected to solve some of those problems, and fight for this country. The total lack of leadership by Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell deserve proper recognition. The only people that they seem brave enough to attack are other republicans.
In their honor, I’m coining a new label “Boehner/McConnell” Republicans, or “B/M” Republicans. I highly doubt that most of the GOP House/Senate members who voted for Boehner and McConnell would run as B/M Republicans. They will distance themselves as far from B/M as they possibly can in the run up to 2016.
It’s time to call them all out, and hold them accountable if they were rank and file, establishment followers. Ask your GOP representatives if they are Boehner/McConnell Republicans, or if they stand with the groundswell of Americans who care more for the country than their party.
NOTE: The only thing more destructive to America’s future than B/M Republicans, are O/P/R (Obama/Pelosi/Reid) Democrats!
- If General Eisenhower had been a Boehner/McConnell General he would not have launched the D-Day Invasion because the allies only controlled 1/2 of the English Channel.
- If Lt Col Travis was a Boehner/McConnell Texan he would have attacked Jim Bowie and Daniel Boone as “extremists”, stated that he didn’t have enough troops to win while quickly surrendering to Santa Anna.
- If Lt Col Travis was an Obama/Pelosi/Reid Texan he would have waited for the cover of darkness before smuggling Mexican troops through the open gate, while proudly stating that the new troops would stimulate the Alamo’s economy.
