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.

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.
