First on CNN: Conservative group pushes to topple GOP leaders in Congress
CNN's Political Ticker ^ | February 4, 2014 | Paul Steinhauser, CNN Political Editor

Posted on 02/04/2014 7:51:25 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

A conservative group is launching a new campaign which calls on "the GOP leadership in both the House and the Senate to step aside."

ForAmerica told CNN that it's putting six figures behind its "Dump the Leadership" campaign between now and November's leadership elections.

The group says that its digital ads will target House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, as well as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Whip John Cornyn, and the group adds that the first paid spots are now up online.

"Time and again, year after year, the Republican leadership in the House and Senate has come to grassroots conservatives, and Tea Party supporters pleading for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes,"(continued)

The Dump the Leadership effort will consist of an aggressive, six-figure social media and digital ad campaign. The campaign will also feature an online petition to activate concerned Americans and ask that they give their vote of no confidence to the GOP congressional leadership. The campaign will be ongoing through the 2014 election cycle.

If you have a coyote problem, it isn’t necessary to exterminate every coyote. that’s a lot of work after all. You just take a couple of them, skin them, turn them inside out, and hang them over your fences for all the other coyotes to see. In this way, they come to understand that crossing the fence is a bad idea and then they cease to be a problem.

The GOPe has clearly declared WAR on the Tea Party...it’s time we fought back and got rid of the RINO leadership (those Quislings within the Republican ranks) and have them replaced with TRUE conservatives. I’m tired of these Quilings having their strings pulled by their corporatist croniess and the likes of the Chamber of Commerce who will sell out America if they can make a buck in the process.

I got some mail today from a group called “Conservative Republicans of Texas” run by a Dr. Steven F. Hotze, location not apparent. They are for Dan Patrick but also Cornball and George P.!

Brent Bozell is a great American! Had lunch with him and Phyllis Schlafly at the RNC 2004 in NYC. HE was always full of huge ideas...if only the RNC actually used them instead of FIGHTING them, Bush’s 2nd term would not have been such a disaster.

Give to the individual candidate, not the GOPe money launderers.

Gotta love it when conservative groups target conservatives members of Congress for not being conservative enough... talk about implosion. Perhaps they should be focusing on the opposition?

This idiot is too stupid to realize we are only getting rid of the numbskull RINO Republicans that are voting with the likes of the Dem Party and assisting them in pushing their progressive / liberal agendas...

“Da Bushes” are “socialist, NWO-lite”. I believe they called it “Compassionate Conservatism” if I’m not mistaken.

A war of political subterfuge comprised of deception on a never before seen level. Any political group / org / PAC that uses the words, “Conservative, Patriot, Alliance, Equality, Parents”, and even “Family” in it is immediately suspect and must be vetted first.

Dan Patrick is a fraud. He ran as “a man of the people” but turned as soon as he saw the opportunity that elected office offers. He supported Dewhurst.

“..if only the RNC actually used them instead of FIGHTING them, Bush’s 2nd term would not have been such a disaster.”

That decision was as much Dubya’s as it was the RNCs. Bush was no conservative and he surrounded himself with advisers who thought like he did.

We are dealing with Congre$$-critters not coyotes, they haven’t proven to be smart enough to see the handwriting on the wall much less their own skins.

just look at Juan McCain, he is pushing back after being censured. They think they are invincible.

McCain definitely needs to be hanging on the fence right along side Lindsey Grahamnesty. To be clear however, I do not support a mass purge action at the federal level. We need precision strikes there, not carpet bombing and we need to focus on consolidating and expanding our hold on state and local level governments. If we were capable of replacing every single RINO with a tea party republican, I would support a purge. We are not capable of that however. We proved that with Murdock and Akin among others.

It would be a mistake to not accept all the help we can get in this battle we conservatives find ourselves in with the corrupt and treacherous Republicans targeted in this new campaign, IMO.

Dr Hotze is from Houston and he has been connected in the media to some really (flaky?) sounding political events/stunts IIRC.

I completely agree. I knew him and his ways even back when he was a sports reporter for our local CBS TV station in Houston. As I learned over time it became clear (even before his TX Senate run) that he was nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing and he came across to me as a lying and a manipulative Libertarian. He is a fraud IMHO beginning with his name: Dan Goeb Patrick was born Daniel Scott Goeb April 4, 1950

Just because Dr *Wellness* Hotze has a “conservative” front group supporting flaky Dan Patrick, Slimey Conrball and GP Bush, doesn’t mean they’ll get elected.

Hotze hosts a radio show on the same radio station Patrick has (or had - not sure, as I haven’t listened in years) a show on.

This front group, CRoT, is about as conservative as the Mark Zuckerburg/Karl Rove *conservative* groups. No thanks!

As another poster mentioned...DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE CANDIDATES!!
Cut out the (faux) front groups.
