Skip to comments.Mitch McConnell: 'I'm a Big Fan of Tea Party'
Posted on 12/11/2013 12:09:27 PM PST by Sir Napsalot
Appearing on FoxNews' "Your World with Neil Cavuto" Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell reiterated his support of the Tea Party movement. Let me make it clear," McConnell told Cavuto. "I'm a big fan of the tea party movement. I think it's been extremely important in helping us regain the House and do well in the Senate in 2010."
McConnell had sparked controversy at the end of the November when he seemed to suggest on a conference call with donors that the Tea Party were "bullies" that he planned to "punch...in the nose."
"There is one particular organization that I was talking about, which I think has been counterproductive, but I think the movement in general has been very positive," McConnell said on Tuesday. The Senate Conservative Fund, which was originally founded by former Sen. Jim DeMint, has been aggressive in opposing McConnell in next year's primary.......

Mitch likes Tea Party to be used as the 'useful idiots', that got GOP into regaining control of House and more seats in Senate. Otherwise, they are to be used as punching bags.
What’s he gonna say next? That he’s a severe fan? Especially of the Eric Clapner wing of the Tea Party?
He's on the outside looking in, you see.
Where is he holding the knife?
Then back the TEA Party candidate running against you in the primary, Mitch.
Hey Mitch, John McCain is not exactly a founding member of the Tea Party. What does that have to do with anything you might ask? You haven’t a clue what the Tea Party is all about. You just keep pulling levers to see if you can get some support from them.
Gotta give him that tiny bit of ‘honesty’.
IF Mitch Connell had said he was part of the Tea Party or tea party movement, nobody would have believed him.
Trying to split a hair between the TEA party and the SCF requires a sharper mind than Mitch will ever have. FUMM. We see through you and you can start counting the days to retirement and the cozy, lucrative lobbyist career that will likely follow
LIAR . he has been in DC too long and around Reid and O waaaaay too long
“Then back the TEA Party candidate running against you in the primary, Mitch.”
Hey, ecumenical feelings do not extend THAT far.
And the tooth fairy is real, too. Mitch McConnell has as good as read the T.E.A. party people out of the party, only very recently he would have nothing to do with them, as they are “too radical” for his taste.
“My way or the highway” is only a feasible alternative if there IS a highway. “My way” only ends up in a fever swamp somewhere.
I wonder how close he came to saying he was a real teabagger?
Mitch is just a cherry picking fan, in lieu of being a conservative leader as a senior (R) US Senator. Thanks for nothing, Mitch. You might as we’ll be a head of cabbage. At least then you would have some usefulness.
so this ass hat is a liar just like obammy
"Fan" = Not actually on the team.
Back into your shell turtle head, you're not fooling anyone.

Old turkey-neck sees the end of his career approaching
At least he’s nervous enough to throw the Tea Party a bone. That’s something.
Somebody read the TEA leaves to him.
And less than a month earlier at Breitbart, the following ...
Note between the two Breitbart articles how Breitbart manipulates photos of politicians.
“Whats he gonna say next? That hes a severe fan? Especially of the Eric Clapner wing of the Tea Party?”
I would hope so, since Clapner wrote the Tea Party theme song.
Mitch is beginning to realize he is in big trouble!
Nice reference to the black quack! That was some years ago.
Rush gave her hell and I loved it.
typical libtard dim lies thru his teeth and believes he is telling the truth
Republicans will face intense pressure over unemployment benefits
BY GREG SARGENT

[snip] The imminent expiration of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program for 1.3 million Americans is mostly being treated as a fait accompli in Washington... (Dems have created an interactive map showing how many people in each state stand to lose benefits.)... This strategy includes placing Op ed pieces by Democrats in papers that serve the districts of top Republicans, such as this one by Rep. Sander Levin in the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the largest paper in John Boehners home state. The game plan is granular: One Democrat points out to me that stats are available on how many would lose benefits on the county level, and that Dems are trying to push these numbers into the coverage, because it is tangible for people in local communities. [/snip]
Who exactly is going to buy this?
That's the money line, ain't it?
Sort of like when Arlen Sphincter said he changed to a democrat to get re-elected.
Here’s hoping his internal polling shows a disaster on election day.
