Boehner (and Sensenbrenner?)

You recall that John Boehner went all wiggledy-limp on his "promise" to cut $100Bn from Fed spending. The final number was around $300 million or so. The official explanation for this was that "you Conservatives are too f*n stupid to understand what we really did here!

Jim Sensenbrenner, who says he's a "conservative," voted with Boehner for this abomination.

Well.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows that 37% have at least a somewhat favorable impression of Boehner, down 10 points from last month. Forty-one percent (41%) view the Ohio congressman unfavorably,...

While no Democrat will ever defeat Sensenbrenner in his District, an actual Conservative could 'primary' him.

And there are quite a few impatient (R) pols who would LOVE to see that happen.

I'm darn sure you weren't talking about me, but if I were ten years younger, it would be very, very tempting.

I suppose if Republicans stopped voting for him and supporting him, it would make it easier to replace him.

The Truth Behind The $38 Billion Budget Cuts:
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/04/17/ftn/main20054723.shtml

Excerpt:
"...Thirty-eight billion dollars is a lot of money.

Or is it?

Well, thanks to the Congressional Budget Office and some great reporting by the Washington Post, it turns out the government won't be cutting $38 billion in one year after all.

No, the real cuts will be more like $352 million!

You heard me right, $352 million, NOT $38 billion.

The rest? Mostly smoke, mirrors, and accounting gimmicks..."
