ANALYSIS: GOP-WH Relations Cool As DC Warms

MORE GOP FRIENDLY FIRE -- FREEDOMWORKS BLASTS BOEHNER'S OFFER. The small-government group didn't have any kind words for House Speaker John Boehner's $2.2 trillion deficit reduction counter-proposal either. A statement Monday from the group's president, Matt Kibbe, read: "Is there room in the House Republican Conference for legislators who believe that Washington is spending too much money it does not have? Based on this remarkably hostile act by leadership, the answer may be no. This is a clear attempt on the part of Republican leadership to punish those in Washington who vote the way they promised their constituents they would -- on principle -- instead of mindlessly rubber-stamping trillion dollar deficits and the bankrupting of America. This is establishment thinking, circling the wagons around yes-men and punishing anyone that dares to take a stand for good public policy."
