UPDATED!Pix of August Pushback:Conservatives Flock to Mark Levin’s “Liberty Amendments” Signing;MD-VA Tea Partiers Hammer Amnesty & Urge Obamacare Defunding at Overpasses

UPDATES!
  • “Tea Party to rally against ‘BoehnerCare’ over fight to defund healthcare law” reports The Hill’s Lara Seligman (click here) – -“ Tea Party activists are planning a rally outside Speaker John Boehner’s (R) Ohio office on Tuesday, vowing they will rebrand President Obama’s healthcare reform law ‘BoehnerCare’ if he does not get behind a conservative effort to defund the legislation. . . .Conservative radio host Mark Levin used the term ‘BoehnerCare’ on his nationally syndicated radio program last week. ‘Rather than calling it ObamaCare, we should call it BeohnerCare’ if the Speaker follows through with the current plan to fund the law in the upcoming continuing resolution that funds the government, Levin said.  ‘So I think I’m going to call it BoehnerCare if I can remember from time to time, certainly more often, because Boehner won’t even fight. Boehner, he’s just – is the word ‘pathetic’ appropriate?’” (Highlighting Forum’s).

Friday afternoon, a team of Maryland and Virginia Tea Partiers led by Ed Hunter displayed Defund Obamacare and No Amnesty signs at an overpass near Braddock Road over the busy Washington Beltway. (See a Maryland-Virginia Tea Party team in action earlier this month in our Action Images: VA-MD Tea Partiers Take Message to Eric Cantor.)

Saturday morning, reportedly thousands were lined up at the Tysons Corner, Virginia Barnes & Noble for author and talk-show-host Mark Levin’s signing of his road plan for America, “The Liberty Amendments.”

Perhaps nothing illustrates the yawning gap between the Republican organization in Maryland (such as it is), and in Virginia on the one hand — and the conservative base in these two states on the other — than the near total silence from these states’ lawmakers on Mark Levin’s  book “The Liberty Amendments”  whose proposed motive force would, in no small part, be delegates and state senators.

The book is a national best-seller here with readers lining up for blocks to get signed copies — yet where are the voices of Maryland and Virginia GOP state politicians?

Steve Deace describes a content-free Virginia GOP and its prominent “undocumented Democrats” in his “Shameless” here.

The impotent Maryland GOP seems lost in intrigue and perhaps worse according to Jeff Quinton here. 

And neither state’s party will own up to how their spokesmen stood on amnesty earlier this month at the Republican National Committee meet in Boston here.

Even a promising Maryland organization inexplicably dropped ‘conservative’ from their name and now tells us here about their plan to attend an Americans for Prosperity Conference in Orlando this week — an organization pushing amnesty here.

There is an energetic conservative base eager to restore and strengthen the Republic.  Not just the big-government national GOP, but the policy-challenged state Republican parties neglect this base at their immediate peril.
