Party-switcher Parker Griffith was handpicked to deliver the GOP's response to President Obama's radio address today, but House Minority Leader John Boehner may be surprised at the hostile reception he gets in Huntsville at a Monday fundraiser for Griffith.
Conservatives in north Alabama's 5th District have hated Griffith for years, and his switch from "R" to "D" hasn't changed that. However, the discontent of local Democrats has enabled Tea Party leaders to organize bipartisan opposition to Griffith now
[Following are the names of several (D)-Left and TEA Party-Right organizations...]"We are sending a message to the national Republican establishment: stay out of our primary. We also want to support the true conservative candidates that Tea Party activists and the local GOP have gotten behind, Les Phillip and Mo Brooks. We're pushing back against the political machine," said Christie Carden, founder of the Huntsville Tea Party.
I've never been impressed by Boehner. Anybody from Ohio who has THAT deep a tan in mid-winter cannot be trusted, period.
