Will The Tea Parties Fight For Ron Paul Regarding Subcommittee Chairmanship?

If incoming House Speaker John Boehner blocks Ron Paul from assuming the chairmanship of the House Subcommittee for Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology, how with the tea party react?

With the Republicans taking control of the House of Representatives in January, many opponents of the Federal Reserve thought that Ron Paul as chairman of the House Subcommittee for Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology would be a slam dunk. After all, he has, by far, the most seniority of any Republican on the committee. Yet, already there are reports that incoming speaker John Boehner is trying to find a way to keep it from happening.

Of the various random people

Of the various random people whom I have no recollection of having ever met, yet they send me untold volumes of email, one has sent me an email that was a forward which stated that Ron Paul must be made chairman. In th past this person has also sent me srtaight-up necon emails and requests to support local neocon candidates, so it appears to me that a large enogh percentage of tea partiers want Paul to be chairman that it should matter to Boehner.

However, I don't think it does matter to him, and it will be his undoing. When 2012 comes around he's going to have to point to something he did, and gridlock alone isn't going to cut it. Exposing the Fed and dismantling it would be a huge success that he could claim for his term as Speaker, but I don't think that is going to happen because I don't think Paul is going to be chairman.

i just called

and they gave me the line of they have no clue where these rumors are coming from and that its not true. we will see! everybody should call i did and his aid said they are getting alot of these calls. in all fairness the aid was very polite and engaging so call call call it matters.

IMHO, the establishment

IMHO, the establishment Republicans cannot win a national election without the support of Ron Paul Republicans and they know it. The question is, do they want to have a decent chance of winning the White House in 2012 or not? In recent days Obama appears to be pulling a Bill Clinton where he is moving to the center politically which will increase his chance of being re-elected in 2012. Sarah Palin (neocon) may win the Republican nomination for President but she cannot win the Presidential election.

good find

interesting article... IMHO,

interesting article...
IMHO, absolutely not..they will not fight...because the "new" tea party is ran by a bunch of fed loving neo-cons...it will certainly at least separate the real tea party from the one which has taken over.
