Tea Party Express Responds to NRSC
09/14/2010 | Levi Russell-Tea Party Express

Posted on 09/14/2010 9:06:45 PM PDT by Outlaw Woman

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 14, 2010

CONTACT: Levi Russell at (509) 979-6615 or via email at: Levi@FrontLineStrat.com

The Tea Party Express issued the following statement in response to preliminary reports that the National Republican Senatorial Committee would not support their own nominee for U.S. Senate in Delaware:

"The National Republican Senatorial Committee has reportedly said they will not support their own nominee for U.S. Senate in Delaware. This is a rash statement that hopefully they will reconsider once good judgment sets in.

"The NRSC tried to meddle in the vote recount for liberal Republican Lisa Murkowski in Alaska. Now they say they aren't committed to supporting their own nominee in Delaware? When will this insanity stop?

"We encourage the NRSC to take a night off, get some sleep, and reconsider their rash statements. It is because of inexcusable conduct in Delaware and Alaska that so many conservatives have turned to the Tea Party Express, offering their support and their donations. These people have lost faith in the NRSC as just another big-government, Washington, D.C.-based organization that has contributed to the problems this country currently faces.

"If the NRSC is committed to defeating Democrats in November, then it is time for them to honor their mission statement and do just that. If they fail to do so, then they can expect millions of conservatives to continue to steer their donations and volunteer hours elsewhere.

"Wake up NRSC, the reason the tea party movement has grown into such a powerful force is because of the failures of establishment organizations such as yours to honor the principles of the Republican Party platform. You tried to force through the most liberal Republican in Congress on the voters of Delaware and they rejected you. Wake up, you are defying your own base, and will end up an irrelevant and impotent organization that serves to only amuse the corrupt political establishment in Washington, D.C.

"The Tea Party Express will back Christine O'Donnell in the general election along with every other candidate we've endorsed. We trust adults at the NRSC will come to their senses and realize that the people have spoken, and it's time for the NRSC to represent the Republicans it is supposed to represent."

The DC elites of the RNC is just the right wing of the DNC. Refusing to support or endorse a republican candidate is tantamount to supporting the democrat...which is exactly what the RNC choice of Dede Scozofazza did...and it's a statement that the Republican party is more concerned about keeping their RINO's in power than winning in November.

If the republican party wants to declare themselves the new Whig party then so be it.

Bravo!! Great response to the Ruling Class who gave us McLame and thereby gave us the Mullah and his cohorts in Congress who are destroying our country, bankrupting us, and stealing our freedom including the DeathCare that will destroy us all.

Well, if they don’t reconsider, they will lose about 1/3 of their support (or more). They are fast becoming the idiots of this election cycle.

NSRC... Just think of the funds you will lose if you continue this path!

“While I believe Marco Rubio has a very bright future within the Republican Party, Charlie Crist is the best candidate in 2010 to ensure that we maintain the checks and balances that Floridians deserve in the United States Senate.”

-NRSC chairman John Cornyn

Michael Steele:
You have insulted us for the last time. You publicly announce your lack of support for a candidate because your hand picked guy didn’t win?

Whose side are you on, really? Many of us feel you and the party have been playing an insider game far too long and enough is enough!

So long you as you are head of the RNC I will not take your calls or even open your letters.

The Republican voter has changed and you and your friends or the cabal of country club Republicans are dinosaurs.

Giving money and support to Crist, Specter, Scuzzyfavor, Chaffee, Snow, Collins? Unacceptable!

Have fun. That little light in the corner of your eye is your career dissipation light.

Have a nice day!

Slugs.

Time to see what can be done to defund the NRSC. They don’t represent Tea partiers. They don’t represent conservatives. They don’t represent Republicans. They just represent their country club clique of pocket liners.

"Wake up, you are defying your own base"

Wow, that is a very powerful statement -- one that should chill the blood of any rational person. It's the kind of warning that one ignores at his peril.

I really hope that Jim DeMint is installed as chairman of the NRSC next session. Cornyn has been an absolute disaster for the Republican party, throwing money to RINOs who bolt the GOP to run against conservative candidates who have all gone on to be the party’s standard bearers.

No impartial observer can deny this, no matter how chummy they may be with Cornyn.

Write them a check for $500.00. Void the check with a large RED magic marker. Put it in an envelope, along with a tea bag, and mail it to them.

You know what this is all about? Beside the usual bs of hanging onto power. These lowlifes want us to be in servitude as much as the jackasses. Plus they don't want the pressure of having to actually do something toward unraveling the freakin' nightmare that has been thrust upon us.

The TEA Party should begin looking for a stellar candidate to challenge John Cornyn, head of the NRSC, the next time he runs in TX. His conduct this primary season has been a big disappointment to Texas conservatives.

AFAIK, Steele has said nothing. The statement came from the NRSC. Some people dont understand that the NRSC is different from the RNC.

One one hand, I myself haven’t seen any original source for this NRSC statement; on the other hand, their website has results from the Wisconsin primary but absolutely no information on the (earlier by an hour) Delaware primary.

I think it is high time that we all take our money elsewhere. If they lose enough funding, they will almost be forced to change leadership/policy. Of course, at this point in time, I don’t know what it would take before they get anymore money out of me.

The Republican Campaign Committee called me to ask for a donation two weeks ago, and I told them that as long as Steele is in charge of the party leadership I won't be donating a dime. I don't say that as a guy who was being “cold-called.” the Party calls me because I've given to them, generously, for many years.

My wife has worked as a paid staffer for two congressional campaigns and a full-time volunteer for another. She has spend hundreds of hours and walked many miles going door to door to support such Party leaders as GW Bush

But the Republican Party has “left us.” Michael Steele is a Trojan Horse, and will do more to empower Obama than perhaps any man in the Democrat Party over the next two years if we let Steele continue in his seat. Because of that the Republican Party will no longer receive financial support from me.

But now that O'Donnell has won I know where I can send some of the cash the Republican Party would have received had they held to their principles.

Cornyn is just upset that O’Donnell has scuttled his plans to preemptively surrender the election by supporting a democratic mole.

Michael Steal has already proved himself to be a POS.
He should have resigned, but instead, he defiantly went rogue. He has been an entrenched enemy within the GOP for some time now.

I just “liked” the Senate Conservatives Fund on Facebook. I suggest everyone does the same.

“The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) is a political action committee dedicated to electing strong conservatives to the U.S. Senate. SCF backs underdog candidates who are overlooked or even opposed by the Washington establishment. Besides Christine O’Donnell, SCF is also backing Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania, Marco Rubio in Florida, Ken Buck in Colorado, Rand Paul in Kentucky, Mike Lee in Utah, Sharron Angle in Nevada, Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, Dino Rossi in Washington, Joe Miller in Alaska, and Ovide Lamontagne in New Hampshire”.

"If the republican party wants to declare themselves the new Whig party then so be it."

Did you hear Rush Limbaugh talk about third party today?

He said that if the RNC doesn't shape up, in a three party system, Tea Party would be first, Republican Party would be third with about 10%.

IMHO this was BIG NEWS coming from the leader of the Republican Party.

Just who the hell can tell the NRSC from the RNC?
Different organizations, but with overlapping roles, and the exact same RINO mindset.
They endorse the same RINOs. They attack the same conservative candidates during GOP primaries, and they both eat the same crow when the candidates they support bolt the party with their money, and the ones they spent millions of dollars to smear are the Republican nominees.

Yes they do but the comments are still getting through. I left several and had only two deleted. I think they are not able to keep up or starting to give up.
