OK

Wow, he sure upset the Tea Party with his "There is not Tea Party Caucus" statement.  The attack has been non-stop.  If you use twitter, do a search for Boehner #tcot, click all (refresh often) and watch the vitriol stream.

Here's some samples:

Warning to @Reince - If Weeper Boehner is put back as speaker, I vote/donate to third party candidates only. No more GOP #tcot

WELL, you get the gist.  The meanies have a new target!

For a quick refresher, here's the list of the Tea Party Caucus members

Tea Party Caucus

We defeated a bunch of the Teahadist Hatriots, will we GOTV everyday until 2014 to defeat the rest?

I set a goal to talk to one new person everyday to shed some GOP doubt after I ask them what the most important issue is to them.  I address that with at least one question, no preaching.

If they say "I hate politics" "I don't vote" or any other apathetic meme, I ask them if they have children and/or grandparents.  I ask if they know what issues are at risk for either/both.  I then ask "Whatever question is specific to their answer, if you felt you could make a difference would you vote?"  then "Are you registered?" "Is not voting setting a good example for your children?"  "Doesn't democracy depend on people voting?"  

Well, you are all better at this than I am.  I think the key is to dare to talk to people.
