Not really a diary, just breaking news.

Tea Party leader calls for Boehner to step down

 By Daniel Strauss - 07/27/11 10:41 AM ET

The leader of the conservative group Tea Party Nation, Judson Phillips, called on House Speaker John Boehner "to go" and be replaced by a "Tea Party Speaker of the House."

"Boehner has no real interest in solving the problems this country faces.  He might have been a decent Speaker of the House in another era where he just needed to manage legislation for a Republican President" Phillips continues.  "Unfortunately for us, Boehner is a big government Republican.  He worships at the altar of massive spending. "

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
