PALIN TO GOP: 'THIS WON'T BE FORGOTTEN COME 2014' Will That Mean The Birth Of A Conservative Third Party Or Can Conservatives Wait That Long After Continuous Rebuffs?


It appears that the Rubicon is being approached. Whether a crossing is undertaken in 2014, before 2014, or at all appears to be up for consideration. But one thing is for sure-it is being considered.

The Breitbart post below has, as of this writing,over 600 comments. A cursory glance at them can't fail to see a seething resentment at the GOP establishment, and a number who are not only considering the formation of a truly conservative (possibly Palin led) third party, but are champing at the bit for it.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Tuesday that she thinks House Speaker John Boehner’s purge of conservatives from powerful committees is a sign the GOP establishment is out of touch with America.

“We send good conservatives to D.C. to fulfill the promises they made to the electorate, and yet when they stay true to their word the permanent political class in their own party punishes them,” Palin said in a Facebook comment. “This won't be forgotten come 2014. Right now the GOP establishment is more concerned about the opinion of the media and the Georgetown cocktail circuit than they are ‘we the people’ who hired them. For all this new talk of how the GOP needs a ‘populist movement,’ it would do them good to remember they already have one; it’s called the Tea Party movement, and it won for them the majority they now enjoy in the House.”
On Monday, Boehner pulled conservative GOP Reps. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Justin Amash of Michigan from the House Budget Committee. The Speaker also removed conservative Republican Reps. David Schweikert of Arizona and Walter Jones of North Carolina from the House Financial Services Committee.
The  gist of Sarah Palin's Facebook post (reproduced here) is that the "permanent political class" as Palin describes the Beltway Establishment, comes down hard on those conservatives who were selected and elected by their constituencies, and who actually have the gall to stick to those principles when they get to Washington.

It may be that the apparent purge of conservatives from powerful committees by House Speaker John Boehner (apparent because no clearly defined reason has been given for the purge-which is again, a source of frustration and discontent for conservatives as it seems dismissive and high handed.) is not the final straw. 

However, it may be a weighty straw, and its weight may be such as to be approaching the load tolerance level that the poor rank and file camel can bear.

Given the loyalty the conservatives showed to the Establishment by, once again, trudging to the polls to vote for an "electable' centrist, one would have thought the Beltway elite would be bending over backwards to pacify the conservatives. 

Given Boehner's apparent attitude, this appears to not be the case. The rank and file can only take so much, the Romney teams dismissing Palin during the campaign was an affront, which she bore stoically, but with the Romney-ite loss, and their having zero credibility the gloves are off.

What happens next is, to a very large degree, very much in the hands of the GOP Establishment. If they continue on this path, then the responsibility for a complete fracture or conservatives sitting out the 2016 election will be their responsibility.  

One thing is certain though, there is a light at the end of this tunnel and it just may be a Palin driven express train which will plough straight through the "permanent political class"
