Skip to comments.Tea Party Nation Reconsidering Endorsement of Mitch McConnell
Posted on 09/25/2013 7:45:46 AM PDT by jimbo123
In the midst of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's lengthy floor speech against the president's health care law, a tea party group is having second thoughts about endorsing GOP Leader Mitch McConnell for re-election next year.
Earlier today, McConnell rejected Cruz's plan to filibuster the House spending bill which funds the government past Oct. 1 but does not pay for Obamacare.
If Mitch McConnell is not going to support efforts to defund Obamacare and in fact is going to work against them, then Tea Party groups simply need to abandon him.

I’m in Kentucky. After his dispicable treatment of Cruz, I’ll vote to go from the frying pan to the fire, if necessary.
i.e. If he wind the primary, I’ll vote for the democrat.
I’m absolutely done with this sh**.
McConnell had TEA Party support?
I thought that was blown when he worked against Rand Paul!
Oh, my bad. According to many here, Senator Paul isn’t a conservative.
OK sunkenciv, you can post your perpetual pestilence now.
Anyone or anything who endorses or supports Mitch McConnell or any of the other stinking rat republicans will lose my support forever.
“Thinking about it”?
TPN can kiss my posterior. They are not an honest arbiter in the argument. Just another stealth group to suck true tea partiers into the establishment buzz saw.
Rand Paul supported and supports immigration reform.
That’s a big problem, dude.
I question the validity of the “Tea Party Nation” if they ever considered supporting the gobbler. Any conservative with a brain knows a full bred RINO when confronted with one.
Reconsidering? This journalist is stuck on yesterday morning.
McConnell is done. Everyone of the republicans who don’t support Cruz will be done once the real cost of this thing hits anyone who works against Ted Cruz is done as of yesterday at about 3 pm EDT
The journalists and pundits are as stickin comfortable dtaus quo as cornyn and the rest
Cruz is way out in front and not looking back
Retire these GOP/e B@$@$T$; don't show any respect
for their previous actions..deeds.
This is what we need to hear!!!
I have to question any "tea party" labelled organization that supports and endorses big government in any form. Any future support for McConnell is strategic suicide.
“TEA Party Nation” should just shut its doors if they start backing the entrenched establishment
Illegal aliens... to Conservatism
TPN is probably some front group set up by Rove to give McConnell cover.
I, too, was unaware ANY Tea Party group endorsed the “Gobbler”.
Gotta remember, in Arizona John McCain was described by somebody as being a fellow traveler, one with them, of the same mindset...
This isn’t all the Tea Party’s fault, but your damned right.
The Tea Party needs to be vigilant as to how it is being gamed. It MUST avoid doing things that counter it’s expressed or at the very least implied goals.
common knowledge is politics in DC is a game of lying and deception and the TPN is obviously in the game to deceive and confuse the true blood Tea Party patriots. Litmus test: check who the TPN has donated to.
If he helps to provide the suffering, economic disaster and loss of freedom that Obamacare is bound to bring us, I will be voting for an Independent Conservative third party instead of him in the next election
The amazing thing is that this even needs to be discussed at all. Mitch has been carrying Hairy Reed’s hat, coat and cane for years. Time for change in Kentucky.
I sent him one as well to go to the senate chamber and witness sen. Cruz so Mitch would know what a conservative with a spine looks like at least once in his miserable sellout life. I am done voting for this liberal turd.
That’s a problem, depending on how it is reformed.
However, he has repeatedly said he supports securing the border and THEN deciding what to do with the illegals who wish to stay.
Not a perfect stance, but a lot closer to it than the GOPe position since oh say 1986 and especially since 2000.
Sadly, at this point, I do not trust this government to reform anything or much less even do anything at all.
His supporting any government action on that at this time is a serious problem for me.
This government has earned no trust and no good faith.
I understand and respect your position.
