Speaker Boehner is not afraid to continue his fight against the Baggers and their organizations:
House Speaker John Boehner, whose strategies have been repeatedly thwarted by Tea Party revolts in recent years, was blunt today when asked whether he thought the ultra-conservatives should get in line.
"I don't care what they do," Boehner replied.
The speaker lashed out at Tea Party activists.
"Well, frankly, I think they're misleading their followers," House Speaker John Boehner told reporters today. "I think they're pushing our members in places where they don't want to be."
"And frankly, I just think that they've lost all credibility," Boehner said.
Maybe Boehner was told about this poll:
Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010.
Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent.
