You hear all kinds of stories on MSNBC, NBC, CNN or the like about accusations regarding the Tea Party and being racist or other charges. Looks like the Democrats have decided if they can't find anything to use they will just make it happen themselves but being smart as most liberals are .. they got caught.

Tea party leader: John Boehner should go

Boehner looks 'like a fool' in the budget debate, the Tea Party Nation founder wrote.

JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 3/3/11 6:47 AM EST Updated: 3/3/11 8:25 AM EST

A national tea party group is in revolt against House Speaker John Boehner and wants to see him defeated in a 2012 primary, arguing that he looks “like a fool” in the debate over spending cuts and makes less sense than actor Charlie Sheen.

“You look like a fool,” Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips wrote in a post on the group’s website, directing his message at the Ohio Republican. “Charlie Sheen is now making more sense than John Boehner.”

Boehner “did not get the message” from the tea party movement demanding big cuts to federal spending, Phillips said, and “the honeymoon is over.” The movement should respond, he said, by finding “a candidate to run against John Boehner in 2012 and should set as a goal, to defeat in a primary, the sitting Speaker of the House of Representatives.”

Phillips said Boehner has backpedaled on his promise to cut $100 billion from the 2011 budget with a continuing resolution spending bill passed in the House last month that included $61 billion in cuts, and is declaring victory before the House and Senate have agreed on a bill that funds the government for the rest of the year and not just the next two weeks. And the messages coming from the speaker have been confusing and contradictory, Phillips said.

“John Boehner is saying when the Senate comes back and they start negotiating with ‘Dingy’ Harry Reid, who does not want to make any cuts, the $61 billion figure is not safe,” Phillips wrote. “Then, Boehner had the gall to have a ‘mission accomplished’ moment when he declared they had fulfilled their commitment by passing a budget in the House that cut only $61 billion. Not making it law or making it happen, but only by passing the budget in the House.”

Boehner, Phillips said, needs to be bolder in his actions on federal spending. “Where are the calls for the cutting of ‘hundreds of billions?’ They certainly are not coming from Boehner. Boehner is simply going to the old tried and true Republican tactic of saying, ‘we promised you we would vote on it, and we did!’”

He continued: “No, John. You were not put in the Speaker’s chair simply to have votes and pat yourself on the back. You were put in the Speaker’s chair to do something.”

Boehner’s political communications director Cory Fritz declined to comment.
OH and I hate to tell you, gbrk, this must have been in the FOXOPHILE spin playbook of the day, but your fellow TEABAGGER Cage/Jobe had already posted this. Looks like Cage/Jobe may have got the SPIN OF THE DAY notice from Rupert Murdoch first, but just to provide the "Fair and balanced" part, here is the same reply for THUG hypocrisy, JUST FOR YOU!

Indiana's top elections official charged with voter fraud; refuses calls to step aside
By CHARLES WILSON , Associated Press

Last update: March 3, 2011 - 5:29 PM


INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana's top elections official was indicted Thursday on voter fraud and other charges for allegedly listing his ex-wife's address as his own on voting and loan forms and serving on a town council when he was ineligible, a prosecutor said.

The Hamilton County grand jury charged Republican Secretary of State Charlie White with seven felony counts in all, including three counts of voter fraud, two counts of perjury and one count each of theft and financial fraud, said John Dowd, one of two special prosecutors asked to investigate the matter.

White, who would be forced to resign if convicted of any of the charges, surrendered to authorities at the Hamilton County Jail in Noblesville. A jail officer said White had been booked and released, but she had no information about bail.

White issued a statement saying he is disappointed at the charges and believes the evidence will prove he didn't intentionally break the law. He said he will not step aside, despite calls for him to do so by Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels and the heads of the Indiana Republican and Democratic parties.

"I will continue to do the job I was elected to do and carry on serving the needs of Hoosier taxpayers through the Secretary of State's office," White said.

Prosecutors contend that White voted in last May's Republican primary after moving out of his ex-wife's home in Fishers and the town council district he represented. White has previously acknowledged the voting error, chalking it up to his busy schedule and new marriage.

He is charged with theft for allegedly continuing to collect a salary from the town council after he was no longer eligible to serve on it. The financial fraud charge pertains to White's allegedly lying under oath about his address on loan documents, Dowd said.

Dowd said the grand jury wasn't sure where White had actually resided, "but the grand jury didn't believe it was where he claimed."

Indiana Democrats called attention to the address discrepancy after White voted in last May's Republican primary. They contend White intentionally skirted the law to keep his seat on the town council.

Dan Parker, the state Democratic Party chairman, said White should resign immediately.

"The judicial system has validated what we have believed all along: Charlie White should never have been on the ballot as a candidate for public office. Much like his voting record, White's entire campaign was a fraud," Parker said.

Daniels called the charges "sad and regrettable," and he and state Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb said White should recuse himself, at least until the case is resolved.

"It would be neither credible nor appropriate for the state's top elections official to continue to perform his duties while contesting criminal charges, some of them under the very laws the Secretary of State implements," Daniels said.

Daniels met with White in December and urged him to postpone taking office until the issue had been resolved, but White rejected the idea, according to a Statehouse official with knowledge of the matter. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.

Dowd, a Republican and a former Warren County prosecutor, and Daniel Sigler, a Democrat and former Adams County prosecutor, were assigned to investigate the allegations because White was the Hamilton County Republican Party chairman until the end of 2010 and all of Hamilton County's countywide elected officials are Republican, Hamilton County's chief deputy prosecutor, Jeff Wehmueller, has said.

If convicted of the financial fraud charge, White could be sentenced to up to eight years in prison, Dowd said. The other six charges carry maximum penalties of six months to three years in prison, he said.

When 2013 arrives and you have lost again, what are you going to whine about then?
