Mitch McConnell on the Tea Party: "We are going to crush them everywhere."

What do you think of this, Daily Paul?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says he isn't worried about tea party-backed candidates challenging GOP incumbents in this year's midterm elections.

"I think we are going to crush them everywhere," McConnell told the New York Times in an interview published Saturday. "I don't think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country."

Shouldn't he be more concerned with doing the right thing?

Aren't Tea Party people supposedly Republicans? Shouldn't McConnell be more concerned with defeating Democrats than another brand of Republicans?

I think

If I were Benton, I'd be looking for a new job.

"You, sir, are only lingering out...

...the period that shall bring with it your defeat. You have yet scarce began upon the war, and the further you enter, the faster will your troubles thicken. What you now enjoy is only a respite from ruin; an invitation to destruction; something that will lead on to our deliverance at your expense. We know the cause which we are engaged in, and though a passionate fondness for it may make us grieve at every injury which threatens it, yet, when the moment of concern is over, the determination to duty returns. We are not moved by the gloomy smile of a worthless king, but by the ardent glow of generous patriotism. We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. In such a case we are sure that we are right; and we leave to you the despairing reflection of being the tool of a miserable tyrant."

Looks like this election cycle will be the moment of truth.

Here's where we see if the Republican Party can be salvaged or if it has "Whigged Out" and become irrelevant.

If it successfully uses the party machinery - both cheating and the new rules improperly adopted at the last Presidential cycle convention - to block what it perceives as "Tea Party" candidates (which I read as the combined set of the Liberty Wing and other anti-big-government people with different foreign policies) and runs only Neocon candidates, it has just shot off its own genitialia. The party will shrink and eventually die off.

THEN it would be time for a new party (or a migration to one of the current minor parties), to replace the Republicans as they once replaced the Whigs.

Meanwhile, we're in the fight of the millenium. This is NOT YET the time to fold our tents and sit out the Republican primaries and caucuses. If there's a good Liberty primary candidate in your area, support him or her. (Or BECOME that candidate.)

Right now the leadership is blustering - claiming victory when it is not yet in hand, to try to demoralize the opposition. We should treat it as a declaration of war, not of our own defeat.

what do I think?

I find such attitudes annoying and childish.

That is what I think.

He sounds like a bully.

Not mature.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

ha, turn the liberty volume up……..!!!!!!!!

Mitch Unconstitutional McConnell, what a shame………REPLACE HIM

kind people rock

My thought: Not really surprising.

It is obvious that McConnell is part of the problem. Rand Paul is dancing with the devil as well. That is why so many people around the Daily Paul don't trust them.

There are very few politicians that seem genuine. Justin Amash has done a remarkable job I think. Thomas Massie had stayed pretty consistent as well. Derrick Grayson seems like a genuine American trying to make a difference.

Quite honestly, however, my bad experience with Ron Paul, Inc. has basically caused me to not trust anyone. I'm done with political donations, campaigns, and putting any mental investment in supporting a politician.

I got the latest Ron Paul Family Cookbook last week. Thanks. I love the man Ron Paul, but Ron Paul Inc. can stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

There is a difference

between focus and tunnel vision. Goals can sometimes clear things up.

I have not purchased the cookbook... yet :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

I didn't purchase it either

I donated $1100 to Ron Paul 2012. That is why I am on the mailing list.

People are free to put their time, money and effort where ever they see fit. I have just decided that I will no longer invest my mental energy, labor, or money in support of a politician.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Remember Rand is his friend just for acceptance.

And we always new he'd have to pay for it. There is no free lunch in life. This should of been blatantly obvious when time came to run someone against him....

McConnell is probably

telling the truth, after all, we have seen how the GOP rigs the election process. Makes sense to me.

There is a big state out west where they

are trying to buy out the RLC.


Got a call from the Lee Bright campaign the other day...

...and it's time to begin making calls informing people of SC about Lee Bright for Senate-SC, 2014.

The Primary is in June, I believe, so not a lot of time left but I believe we are on track to take down Lindsey Graham...

The establishment GOP

The establishment GOP would be perfectly fine with Hillary Clinton as president. It doesn't matter if they win or lose as long as they keep control of the party.

McConnell is a necessary evil but...

A) I think it's an attempt to distort reality, to make people not want to donate, and acquiesce, give up and support the incumbents.

B) Maybe he's right about polling and they all win. If a bad politician is elected I don't care if they're a Democrat or a Republican.

C) Get fired up and organize, here's the key part: "In contrast to 2010 and 2012, it seems improbable that in 2014 either the Mississippi or the Kansas Senate seat could fall into Democratic hands, no matter who the Republican nominee is."

D) I hope Rand and Jesse are somewhere drinking whiskey neat, toasting to playing McConnell like the fool he is.

Which means....

They'll lose a bunch of races since many of the now disgruntled "Tea Partiers" will stay home... I know I will. I will never vote Neo-Con or whatever looks like it...again. Never. Since I've no dog in the race, I'm gonna find a good racist book, go and get a racist sandwich, and a racist glass of apple juice and sit and read all about the racial supremacy of myself and those who look like me...all day long. Anything would be better than pulling a lever for anyone that Mitchy would approve of.

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Mitch hired Jesse Benton to do that for him.

Same reason C4L hired him.
