The American voters do not like the leadership of Eric Cantor, Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, Lamar Alexander, Mitch McConnell.”

Viguerie said he is encouraged that House conservatives are working to unseat Boehner, but he is not happy with the possible replacements, such as House Majority Leader Eric I.

They demonstrate that with the legislation that they pass when they had the power,” he said.  “In 2006, the Republicans lost to Congress, lost the White House in 2008, in my opinion, having nothing to do with Nancy Pelosi, Reid, Obama but everything to do with failed, corrupt, immoral leadership of Karl Rove, George W.
